The Realms of Arkania Trilogy

The Realms of Arkania games (Blade of Destiny, Star Trail and Shadows of Riva) deliver a prime example of the classical European fantasy universe. Based on Germany's most popular pen & paper role playing game, it was also the first German computer RPG series to get widely recognized outside of its home country. To this day it holds a stable hardcore fanbase that loves the games for their comprehensive adaption of the pen & paper ruleset and the believable medieval fantasy setting.

This is one amazing game!

If you were born in 1985 or before you will love this game!

BEFORE YOU START YOUR EPIC ADVENTURE PRINT OUT THE GAME MANUAL!!!

I just realized steam has it scanned in. In order to save you will have to refer to the Manual!

Star Trail is unique and one of the best RPG adventures i have ever played. World of Arkania is very alive and dynamic, beautiful artwork and fairy music, a lot of secrets to uncover and mysterys to reveal. I am very happy to see this game on steam........install now and become a part of the epic adventure.

A bit late , but i reccomend to edit - dosboxrealms2.conf - this file can be found in the game directory, few lines have to be changed: scaler=advmame2x ; cycles=18000 . scaler makes picture a bit softer and 18000 cycles looks like the optimal speed.

I played this game years ago when it was rereleased on CD so this is really for new gamers who want to consider trying their hand at some classic RPG gaming. This is the core of what hardcore old school RPGs used to be and why they were glorious but also frustrating at times.

No single superhuman adventurer battling through hordes of enemies - no man could be that powerful. Instead, you have a band of adventurers with real needs like hunger, thirst, illnesses, and broken equipment. Magical items? They are extremely rare and not the absolute destructive force they are in current fantasy games. Skills? Ha! Every skill you can think of you can upgrade, even ones you'll never use.

And there in lies the beauty and the flaw. You, the grand guide, have to decide how you want to handle your adventurers. In current RPGs, such details have been reduced or even eliminated to improve the gaming experience. If the concept of handling the challenges of weather, terrain, illnesses, wear and tear of equipment, and your adventurers' needs immerses you into the game, then by all mean you should purchase this game and maybe even the whole trilogy. If such details sound tedious and aggravating, then pass by this game.

But I shall also provide a warning; it still contains the bugs that the originals contained. They are minor, but they can still be irritating. The biggest of which I always had to deal with is the step wise error when trying to complete a quest in the swamplands. You must turn it off to access the quest-required sunken chest. Lastely, when in doubt, do an internet search!

This is an extremely dated game. If it had been the first RPG I had ever played, I would have never played another. Its like a glorified point and click. I actually love old school RPGs like Final Fantasy Mystic Quest, All Final Fantasies, Lufia, Dragon Quest just to name a few, but this just isn't fun imo. 2/10
