Spells of Gold
Spells of Gold is a role-playing game with strong trade influence. The game is set in the world of fantasy, inhabited by humans, beasts, undead ones and other creatures. The universe of the game - Lokatrienn - is large indeed. It consists of a number of separate worlds. Each one has several cities, which represent isolated economic and political systems. The Hero is able to transit from one world to another through special space Gates, called Portals. His main activity is trade, that is buying goods in one town and selling or exchanging them in another. For this purpose the Hero has got a special item - a Magic Sack of Monroke. Thanks to it, he can easily carry a vast amount of goods.
Much has to be undertaken, before the Hero can find more advantageous trade routes and get significant profit. On his way, he is going to meet robbers and bandits, beasts and undead ones. It is easy to guess, that every such meeting will hardly end peacefully. To feel sure and ready for any unexpected accident and adventure, the Hero may choose what he would like to be: he may develop and master his fighting habits and become a Warrior, or he may acquire some magic skills and become a Mage, or specialize in both arts.
As developing his skills and habits, the Hero gets a chance to join one of the Guilds - where he can develop and perfect himself. There are also five different Gods for the Hero to worship. Each God grants special advantages and the unique set of prayers. While traveling over Lokatrienn, trading, fighting and gaining experience, the Hero gradually comprehends the very essence of the Universe. The whole history of the world-creation and the way to change it is revealed to him. The Hero participates in the eternal battle between the Good and the Evil, unravels the mystery of the Dark Aliance, or even finds inconceivable Way of the Chosen...

SoG is a really good RPG even when the graphics isnt so good but still the game has much to offer.In the game you arent only completing quests and kill monsters,you also can trade.Buy food from 1 city and sell it to other for profit if it didn't rot.Also you are gaining 3 kind of experience depends on how you fight or how much profit you are making.So you earn experience for warrior,mage and merchant.When you level up you get 10 points that can be used to level your stats.There is much more about the game so if you want to play something a bit different than Hack'n Slash RPG go try this one.You won't regret it,

If you look for good hack & slash look elsewhere. If you look for gripping story, complex combat or maybe expanded NPC relations look also elsewhere. But there is one unique feature - trading. I know that you can trade on almost every role playing game on market but there are few titles from genre which allows you trading in for pure profit purpose. The game itself is mediocre but it could give some fun if you like the mix of light rpg & light trading game.
Russian style ;]Muzicjohn | April 20, 2011 | See all Muzicjohn's reviews »
This is (as u see) very ugly game. And it's very archaic. Sounds are awful. Etc, etc. But game is still playable and have some strange russian magic ^^. Don't know how to explain it, but I spent some hours with this game and wasn't that bad, game is still giving fun, even with all those defects. It's hard to rate it, but if there will be any "hot deal" for this game (because 12,95 is a lot too much) and you are a bit crazy (just like me), you can try it ;].
