The first in a planned trilogy of games based on TSR's popular AD&D franchise, Birthright challenges you to unite the divided kingdoms of Anuire. It won't be an easy task, because an enemy called the Gorgon is systematically killing the kings of the land and consuming their bloodlines. Playing the role of a young king, you must rule over your kingdom, participate in negotiations, form alliances, lead your army to battle, and command expeditions to find spells, weapons, and treasures to claim your birthright.
Conquered provinces are each worth a specific point value. You can also earn points by forming alliances or by finding certain relics while adventuring. To win, you must earn 300, 400, or 500 points, depending on the level of difficulty. While Birthright combines simulation, strategy, role-playing and adventure aspects, players can toggle certain features on or off to create a game that best suits their style. Can you withstand the power of the Gorgon? Can you realize your destiny as king and unite Anuire? Only time will tell.... ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
