In a departure from the standard Might and Magic fare, Legends of Might and Magic, featuring first person, squad-based combat in a medieval world, is designed for online LAN or Internet play. Up to 16 players divide into teams of good or evil when online, choosing one of four general scenario themes: retrieve the Sword in the Stone, rescue the princess, help the Warlord escape, or slay the dragon. In all scenarios, total elimination of the enemy also constitutes a victory, with gameplay reminiscent of titles such as Quake III or Unreal Tournament.
Six character classes are available (split between good and evil), each having unique abilities and disadvantages. Players seeking to follow the path of good can choose the Paladin, Druid, or Sorceress, while those serving the dark side can select a Warrior, Heretic, or Archer. Keeping with the title, weapons of "might" (thrown, crossbows, and bows) and "magic" (rods, staves and wands) can be bought with gold in purchase zones or picked up on the battlefield from fallen enemies. Each category of weapon has 3 specific types, for a total of 18. Four types of armor (leather, chain mail, plate, and magic) are also available.
While Legends of Might and Magic is primarily designed for online competition, offline practice scenarios allow selection of any team, character, or map. Features of offline games include no time limits, no other players to contend with, and free reign to explore environments with victory conditions and goals exactly the same as in online play. ~ Michael L.
