This real-time strategy game is based on the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing system and set in the officially sanctioned campaign world of Eberron, where magic and machine represent competing paths to power. Players lead one of three factions: the righteous Order of the Silver Flame, composed of humans and other good peoples of the land; the chaotic Umbragen, a vengeful people exiled from their ancestral home; or a third, mysterious race that seems to draw its strength from pure rage.
Dragonshard is presented in full 3D. Battles can take place in caves and dungeons beneath the surface of the earth as well as in the open landscapes of the surface, as in Black Hole Games' contemporary Armies of Exigo. Throughout the single-player storyline, faction development and character choices add light role-playing elements. The game's plot involves great battles for control of "dragonshards," the enormous crystals that are the source of all magical power in the land. The Dragonshard storyline was written by Keith Baker, who created of the D&D fantasy realm of Eberron. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
