Return To Krondor is a role playing game set in the land of Midkemia based on the works of author Raymond E. Feist. The game is a sequel to the original title, Betrayal at Krondor, released in 1994.
In the sequel, you assume the role of one of five main characters. They include Squire James, a reformed thief and squire to the Prince of Krondor, Brother Solon who is a warrior/priest of Ishap and William ConDoin, a member of the Krondor city guard. Also available is Jazhara, a young sorceress from Kesh who has recently been given the job as Court Mage of Krondor and Kendaric, senior journeyman and wizard at Krondor's Wreckers' Guild.
The plot, played out through 11 chapters, revolves around the loss of the Tear of the Gods, a sacred relic belonging to the Ishapian Church. The half-crazed sorcerer Sidi, while leading a band of pirates in an attempt to steal the relic from the Ishapian treasure ship, unwittingly causes the ship to sink instead, carrying the relic to the ocean floor. From this point in the adventure, your searches will take you to the labyrinth of stinking sewers beneath Krondor, on an excursion into an evil-infested haunted temple and to the loftiest points within the Krondor palace.
Return to Krondor contains more than 180 characters, 3D environments and over 60 spells, each with unique properties. Real-time lighting and special effects as well as a comprehensive alchemy system for creating spells and potions are but two of the additional features in the game. Sierra supports Return to Krondor with a website www.sierrastudios.com/games/krondor containing links, a forum and other game-related fare. ~ Michael L. House, All Game Guide
