A single player action RPG with strong strategy elements. You play as a faction leader protecting the barbarian city, Jorvik, by destroying threatening monsters and completing quests. At the same time, you compete with rival factions to see who will rule the city. Barbarians choose their leaders by fighting to the death!

As a faction leader, you must deal with rival factions through diplomacy, trade, and in time, war. Between battles and raids against other barbarian factions, you build the most powerful faction possible, to withstand your enemies. Building the power of a faction involves exploring a fantasy world, slaying dangerous monsters, solving quests for the city, avoiding deadly traps, and plundering loot to share within your faction.

But in this world, actions actually have consequences, so take care. Annoying the powerful and aggressive Legion of Fear faction will cause them to declare war and destroy you. Ignored Orc uprisings in the Black Forest will cause even more trouble. Protect ally covenants that are being raided, because friends are hard to come by.

  1. Old but...
    by Moo, France - Apr 12th 2015

    It's old but still good for the odd replay every now and then

  2. Nice
    by Luke Waymire, USA - Feb 8th 2009

    Not a bad game, a lot of replay ability. The story is poor and you'll see all of the quests the game has to offer fairly soon- things like rescuing townsfolk, killing a certain amount of monsters, beating a boss-level monster or collecting herbs.
    That said, you can keep leveling up your character and the game stays competitive and fun for a long time. The competing guilds aspect of the game is unique, although it can get easy to manipulate.

    It seems very similar to Soldak's other game, Kivi's Underworld. I would buy either one or the other, but not both.

  3. Great game worth the money
    by John Clayborne, USA - Aug 12th 2008

    This game at first i was skeptical about it. Yet after playing the demo i liked it, so i bought it. It has many of the elements that i have been looking for in RPG since the Baldurs Gate and Icewind Dale Series. Random Loot, Monsters and Class system. Of course I could wish for more and hope they do deliver that. The Strategy part of it is very well too, having to take over other guilds in order to be number one in the village, Yes it gets old after a while. Yet one thing that stands out is the modding you can modify the game to your taste I.E make drops appear more frequent or less, Random town attacks to fend off. I say spend 20 dollars this game will have you coming back for more and more.
