Description

Wizards & Warriors is a traditional role-playing game similar in many ways to Wizardry games. The player builds a team of up to six members from ten available races to fulfill the legend of the Mavin Blade. It is possible to choose between four professions to start with, and convert to eleven others during the game, as the player learns the destiny of the heroes and prepares to confront the evil Cet.

The first-person perspective game uses mouse and keyboard commands to interact with the world. Combat is phased during melee, but real time at range. Magic uses a school/skill/mana approach: a character can only cast spells within his own school(s), with intensity of magic depending on his skill level, and limited by the amount of spell points in the school.

Trivia

Wizards & Warriors had an interesting incentive to register. Sending in your card entered you in a contest to win a full sized mounted replica of a 16th century suit of armor. Some copies of the game even came with a sticker on the front touting this contest. In case you were wondering, second place was a $200 gift certificate from Ral Partha and there were ten Activision game packs as third place prizes.
