Only the Chosen Will Survive!

It is now the dawn of a new age. The most momentous of wars has begun in the heart of the Sacred Lands. Four races - the Empire, the Mountain Clans, the Undead Hordes and the Legions of the Damned - stand ready for battle as they fight for the survival and dominance of their war-torn world, and the gods they have long believed in.

The Mighty Lords watch silently as their Disciples prepare for the daunting tasks ahead. Each warrior must engage in a struggle of swordplay, sorcery, and uncommon courage in order to complete their sacred quests.

The Empire fight to secure their people’s future; The Mountain Clans search to regain their rune knowledge; The Undead Hordes seek revenge for their accursed god; and The Legions of the Damned battle to resurrect their fallen angel’s soul. It is a struggle of desperation.

Every stroke of a sword, each blast of fiery magic must be endured beyond exhaustion. For once the clouds of destruction clear, lands will have been transformed, new armies will have been forged and the cheers of the liberated will resound throughout the land.

The day of reckoning has come...
Only one race shall claim victory. Only the chosen will survive.

Reviews:

Game Industry News by John Breeden II

"The game almost got delegated to the lowest shelf of the "to review" library after a quick glance. When you look at the game from a distance, it seems to be a clone of the highly successful Heroes of Might and Magic series. It's only after you have spent a little time with the game that you realize that it is really different, and actually in many respects a lot more fun."

"The graphics are really the downfall of this game. It's all 2D and the game only runs in 640 by 480 resolution. Where as the Heroes series looks spectacular at 1024 by 768, Disciples is pretty average by comparison. This is not to say the graphics are bad, but given the fact that the game is not real-time, and hence programmers did not have to worry about rendering too much, you would have thought they would have gone hog-wild with the color palette.

"This seeming disadvantage has actually been a boon for me personally, because the game plays great on my laptop. Disciples has become my constant traveling companion on the road, and I am a lot more sane because of it.

"Disciples: Sacred Lands is truly a landmark in strategy turn-based gaming. The way resource ownership is determined, with your land slowly creeping outward, makes this game unique in the same way that The Settlers distinguished itself in the real-time strategy world. If you, like me, made the mistake of thinking that Disciples was just like Heroes, then you need to take another look at this game. In no time at all you will become a disciple yourself, devoted to playing the game over and over."
