Quest For Glory V: Dragon Fire is an adventure RPG, the fifth in the highly successful Quest For Glory series by Lori Cole and Corey Cole.
The King of Silmaria has been assassinated and the kingdom is in trouble as vicious creatures roam the once peaceful land. You, being the valiant hero you are, are sent to Silmaria by old magician friend Erastus to investigate. Upon arriving, you discover a new king is being chosen through the "Rite of Rulership" and, of course, must participate! The rite, however, is wrought with dangerous quests and not surprisingly there's an assassin creeping around trying to pick off the five candidates for the position. To make matters worse, someone has unleashed the horrible dragon which, until this day, has been magically imprisoned.
This title has kept some of the basic fundamental similarities which binds all of the Quest for Glory games together. Players are able to choose from three basic character types: the burly fighter, the magical magician or the lithe thief. Although the basic game remains the same, each class has a different way of approaching situations as well as scenarios unique to each. In addition to the three basic classes, a character can be imported from previous Quest for Glory games (sans equipment) to become "The Paladin," the mightiest of heroes.
The game has ten hours of spoken dialogue and an original score by Chance Thomas.
Can you prove yourself superior in the rite of rulership, dodge the stealthy assassin's blade, defeat countless scores of grotesque creatures, destroy the evil dragon and escape in one piece?
The Quest for Glory V: Dragon Fire team originally had planned on developing a multi-player version of the title but scrapped the idea when the design studio, Yosemite Entertainment was closed late April 1999. ~ Chris Couper, All Game Guide
