Description

Kohan: Immortal Sovereigns is a real-time strategy game set in a fantasy world where you take on the role of an immortal known as the Kohan. Your race once ruled the world, but was devastated in a series of massive cataclysms. As an immortal you have reawakened to a new world, unlike the one you once knew. Now you must come to grips with your past glory, your present hardship, and your future destiny. If you are to return your race to their rightful glory you must solve the mystery of their destruction.

Gameplay includes the conquering and upgrading of cities witch allow you to train troops, as well as building mines. Cities and mines are located on predetermined locations. Troops are organized in companies with a captain or Kohan at the head of a squat. Units in a squat can include infantry, cavalry, archer and spell casters. Playable races include Mareten (humans), Gauri (dwarves), Drauga (orcs), Haroun (elves), Slaan (lizardfolk), Undead, and Shadow each with their own units, weaknesses and strengths. The game was followed by an standalone expansion called Kohan: Ahriman's Gift.
