The third follow-up for Strategy First's successful turn-based fantasy strategy game revolves around a newly playable race. While Guardians of the Light and Servants of the Dark focused the game's good and evil factions, Rise of the Elves allows gamers to take command of the sylvan, elder race, for the first time in the series. This stand-alone expansion features more than 35 new Elven units and eight new quests, in addition to a number of improvements made to the gameplay and map-making tools introduced in earlier releases.
The game's rich back story involves the powerful entities who created the realm of Nevendaar. The world was built by immortal beings, who created the trees, the oceans, and the mountains, as well as the Elves, the Merfolk, and the Dwarves. Yet through centuries of mortal time — only moment to the immortals — what began as an existence of harmony and peace was transformed into a world of discord and conflict. Perhaps the last hope for salvation, the immortal patron of the Elves Gallean has now returned, and must unite his children's divided tribes to stand against a growing evil that threatens them all. ~ T.J.
