A great Role Playing Game

When Lands of Lore: The Throne of Chaos came in 1993 or 1994, people were amazed. Not only did the game have an intro that was one the most beautiful to that date, it did also incorporate a good and interesting game-play. A funny side-story to this whole game was that Lands Of Lore originally was the game Eye Of The Beholder 3. But Westwood (who made Lands of Lore) lost the rights to do it, even though they had made much of the game. The remains of Westwood's Eye Of The Beholder 3 were converted into Lands of Lore: The Throne of Chaos. A good story about the evil witch Scotia taken possession of the enchanted ring "The Nether Mask", which she used to cover the lands in darkness. The Dark Army where on the move, and succeeding in smashing Gladstone, the symbol light of the lands, and poisoning King Richard. In the game your job is to slay Scotia. In the new version of this game King Richards voice where played by Patrick Steward - who did a good job. Lands of Lore: The Throne of Chaos where so successful, that it where succeeded by two sequels. I love this game. It is one of my most fondest memories of the mid-nineties.

Lands of Lore is an excellent game with a GREAT storyline and hours of fun. Richard LeGrey is the noble King of the Gladstone and ruler of the White Army. The King and his council fret of the rumors they hear about Scotia, an evil hag and ruler of the Dark Army, and her uncovering of the Nether Mask- a magical ring of extreme power that allows its wearer to shape-shift. But, this is no rumor, for the Mask was found deep within the mines, causing many vile creatures to be released into the lands. Now Scotia can assume the shape of any person, or creature... After Richard learns of the Dark Army's findings, he seeks a champion to retrieve a magical necklace from an old friend in hopes to destroy the hag and stop her evil plots of taking over the Gladstone Kingdom. But after failing to find this Ruby of Truth, the champion returns to Gladstone only to find the Scotia has already begun her vile plot--poisoning the King! Protected by a spell from his council, the King is in need of an Elixir that can only be retrieved by his champion, whom is set out to explore the lore and mystery of the surrounding lands in hopes to save their beloved King and stop Scotia from victoriously gaining control of the Kingdom. You're that champion. And by the way... Scotia hates you. You are able to choose from one of four pre-developed characters to serve as the King's champion, each having their own strengths and weaknesses in three categories: Magic, Protection, and Might. Along the way, you pick up companions to fight along side you (some are optional).
