I am the Chronicler, my duty, to record deeds both good and
evil, in this world and others. Before this tale begins I will set the scene,
for this is the way of all good storytellers.
The world of Jarrah is best envisaged as a 'wheel' with
tranquil Haven as its hub, the other isles radiating around it, some linked by
grand bridges. Indeed, to many of its inhabitants Jarrah is know as 'The Wheel
of Life'. In this great land, darkness holds sway in the form of an evil
sorcerer named Silver. From his palace on the blood-isle of Metalon he rules
with an unmatched zeal for ruthlessness and depravity over the Eight Islands.
His lust for power, not content with a whole world to toy with, drives him to
the most terrible of demonic pacts.
To Silver's right hand stands his murderous son, Fuge. It is
through this fearsome warrior that Silver's will is carried out. The people of
the isles fear the mere mention of his name.
To his left stands Glass, his witch-daughter. Her terrible
spells have twisted her realm into the icy domain of Winter.
Far from Silver's court, beyond the great library of Gno,
stands the expansive forest of Verdante. It is a peaceful place, largely
untouched by its evil ruler. Here lives a young man, David, with his wife
Jennifer. Since childhood David was put in the care of his grandfather, a
battle scarred veteran both wise and honorable. The old man shows great
patience with David's youthful attitude toward sword practice, but since the
death of his own son, David's father, he has known that the time will come when
David must fight for all he holds dear...

Gamer's Alliance by Matthew
" This is the whole reason to play Silver. It is so much
FUN! I stayed up too many hours playing through this game. Through the bad
acting and the exquisite backgrounds, the great music and the lame character
models, the game was always fun. It is a lot like the classic Zelda for the PC.
You go around, kill lots of enemies, get potions, great weapons, some magic,
and then beat up the last boss.
" This alone makes the game a worthwhile buy. The
hack-and-slash formula works out great. All you have to do is point click,
kill. There are also even little bits of amusement like exploding bodies and a
quick bar fight. These may be few and far between, but they do remind you that
the game does have some good and enjoyable perks. "

Under-Appreciated Game of the Year
Silver is a title that we felt deserved more attention in
1999. Released in Europe quite early in the year and in North America last
fall, this adventure with RPG elements seemed to suffer because it didn't fit
many observers' pre-conceptions of what it should be. However, most gamers who
played it without imposing such expectations seemed to find it quite
