DescriptionThe direct sequel to Betrayal at Krondor, Return to Krondor takes the player back to the fantasy world of Midkemia, which is once more in peril.
It is the story of Bear, ruthless mercenary in pursuit of the Tear of the Gods, a holy artifact of immense power. As Squire James of Krondor, it is your task to follow the trail of death and destruction Bear has left in his wake and to stop him before he reaches the Tear. As you progress in your travels you will discover that someone or something is creating dark beings and horrible perversions of nature, suggesting that things are very wrong in Krondor besides the ambitions of a single renegade mercenary.
Return to Krondor features pre-rendered backgrounds with changing camera angles for exploration, and 3D character models. Battles occur on separate screens, and are turn-based, including the tactical element of moving the characters manually over the battle field. The player controls James and three other characters who join the party. Compared to its predecessor, the game is less heavy on exploration, having smaller and more confined areas. Several side quests, however, are still available, in addition to pursuing the main storyline.

TriviaReturn to Krondor is sub-titled Book 1: Harbinger of Shadows because it was the first part in a planned series of games. However for various reasons Sierra dropped the Krondor franchise (after all the trouble they went through to get it again) and now the storyline has a very good chance of remaining uncontinued.
