Warlords: Battlecry [PC Game]
Developed by: Strategic Studies Group - Red Orb Entertainment (2000) - 3D Real-Time Strategy - Rated: Teen
Warlords: Battlecry [PC Game] Choose from eight different races each having varied Strength, Charisma, Intelligence , and
Dexterity. After this, specialize your hero with a profession before you build your army, and squash the opposition in real-time.
Control of The Tears of Dawn and their unearthly powers sits center stage in the real-time strategy, fantasy role-playing game
Warlords Battlecry. Two forces, one good, one evil, battle for possession of a land called Etheria through a series of 36
single-player episodes (campaign). A new element has been integrated into gameplay, the development of heroes, which signals a
departure from the strictly real-time aspect familiar to fans of the previously released Warlords series.
In addition to the single-player campaign, Warlords Battlecry offers both a Skirmish mode in which you fight up to five
computer-controlled players on either standard or random maps as well as multiplayer action for six via LAN, four over the
Internet, or two by modem. As with the single-player campaign, the game combines combat, heroes and magic in a blend of
action requiring formation of armies, spell casting, questing, combat and empire building. An automatic resource gathering
option allows you to focus on strategy in lieu of resource management, if desired.
There are 16 tutorial scenarios provided to help learn nuances of gameplay in Warlords Battlecry. Seven deal with basic gameplay
and cover such topics as how to move your armies, attack, defend, build structures, cast spells and so forth, while the other nine
concentrate on tactics for each of the nine races in the game. The nine races are divided into three groups, civilized, primitive
and magical, with each group consisting of three factions. All factions have unique characteristics and ratings in six categories
(combat, hit points, upgrades, speed, siege and production time). Additionally, special modifiers, both positive and negative, are
assigned to each faction based on their traits and alignment (good, evil or neutral).
Warlords Battlecry encompasses eight spheres of magic: healing, necromancy, pyromancy, nature, alchemy, summoning, illusion
and runes. Each sphere has ten spells divided by levels dependent on the skill of the caster (four level 1, three level 2, two level 3
and one rare level 4 spell). Most spells have modifiers as well as associated mana costs. Additionally, there are three common
spells automatically known by every spellcaster: silver arrow, heroism and shield.
The game also includes a scenario editor/builder that allows for full customization of existing scenarios as well as creation of
new ones. All aspects are changeable including terrain, buildings, armies, events, sides and even game options. Sound, settings
and graphic displays are also available for customizing gameplay. Whether you follow the Path of Light or the Path of Darkness,
favor brute force or magic, or enjoy multi- or single-player adventures, entering this fantasy-based war-torn world may well
induce you to utter your very own Warlords Battlecry!
