Description

"I like this a lot. Simple yet deep, with strong writing and a clearly avid fan base. It’s been a while since we got sent something so unexpectedly good." - 8/10, Mana Pool


Eador is a universe made of countless shards of land drifting in the Great Nothing. Each of the shards is a little world unto itself, with geography and denizens of its own. The power over the shards is bitterly contested by Masters, the immortal beings mortals believe to be gods.

Take the role of a mighty Master and shape the destiny of Eador, on land and within the astral plane itself. Explore the land and rule provinces as you see fit, defend them, and keep the populace in line or they may rebel. Choose from thousands of items--swords, spells, weapons, armor, and more--to outfit the heroes you recruit so they may best meet any challenge. Keep your heroes healthy and they will grow stronger as they gain experience from battle. Forge alliances and engage in the delicate art of diplomacy as you negotiate trade agreements or wage war against a mutual foe. Eador with its many wonders and adventures awaits, will you answer the call?

Old school strategy

Venhiem | Jan. 12, 2015 | See all Venhiem's reviews »

This game is an old-school, turn based strategy game. First off, it can get really complex and sometimes hard, so if you're looking for a light time passer, this is not it. This game won't teach you everything, or even much. If you have no problem learning by trial and error, and discovering things for yourself, this game is for you. The graphics, while nothing extraordinary, are yet beautiful, striking, and appealing. The gameplay, while not so simple, is layered and very fun and deep. The amount of content, options, abilities is awesome, and well worth it. This game features hours and hours of fun. The strategy is very good. I'd give it 8.5/10 - A little hard to get into, but fun nonetheless.

Turn Based Strategy Overkill

Venhiem | Jan. 10, 2015 | See all Venhiem's reviews »

For the strategy / turn based purist a completely overdose of endorphin. For anyone else, hell on earth administered in tiny shards. If you like turn based games with solid mechanics and on a large scale this game is great. It's sleek, polished and efficient and uses its few resources perfectly. Minimalist graphics, very fun dialogues, good sense of freedom and choice but almost no animation and other sparkling effects. No save options, not really an option turning back... It's not too difficult but still it's mostly not learning by doing but rather learning by dying. 4 out of 5 stars because I miss the savescumming reload button and because of minimalist visual
