About This Game
Spiderweb Software's classic adventure of treachery and battle in ancient times has returned! Travel back to ancient Britannia for a tale of cunning foes, vicious battles, and a race to rediscover the lost secrets of magic.
Britannia is a land ravaged by war. The natives of this land, the savage Celts, have long been subjugated by the Roman invaders. At last, they have risen up in bloody rebellion. Battles rage across the land. Cities are sacked, the inhabitants massacred. And, lost in the chaos, in the small, forgotten valley of Shadowvale, a plan is being formed.
Soon, a band of barbarians will rediscover the lost secrets of magic. They will find a way to rid their lands of their oppressors forever. And you, as the Celtic warriors, will attempt to free your people.
Or you, as the Romans, will attempt to crush them. For the good of the Empire.
Fun, fun story and eminently replayable. Surprisingly educational and good on the history. Give Jeff Vogel all your money.. While I enjoyed some of the Avernum titles this one has not entranced me. In fact because of the way it is displayed it is not only not engaging but downright hard to play because of the tiny graphics. (Even with the "fixed" resolution ap at the beginning it looks very poor.) And frankly it just wasn't my cup of tea. However if you like Rome based games (the game takes place in Roman Controlled Albion (because England is not yet a thing) and that may appeal to you. I did not get far so I am not really saying buy or don't buy but beware that it may be unappealing because of the size of the game window and graphics within. That said, if it is on sale at $0.99us or so that isn't a terrible price to pay to find out you don't enjoy it.. Ignore my steam hours, I used to own this game. It's old, so go into it knowing that some things are going to be hard to figure out and things like the quest journal may not be polished.
