Dominions: Priests Prophets & Pretenders is a turn based fantasy game in which you take the role of a pretending god. Each pretender is Lord and Master of one of fourteen cultures, each with its own individual strengths and weaknesses. With the aid of soldiers and mages you will conquer the lands of your neighbors in a struggle for total domination. This is an old game and it is now available again for those who wants some Dominions nostalgia or maybe just want to show their support for Illwinter Game Design. If you haven't played any Dominions game previously you should start with Dominions 3 as it's a lot better. (Go to Dominions 3 to find a forum where you can discuss this game and get technical support)
There are seven schools of magical research and there are eight paths of magic. The paths determine the strength of a mage e.g. a mage can have the path of fire at level 2. The schools of magic determine what spells the mages can cast e.g. evocation level 3 enables all mages of the path of fire level 2 or more to cast fireballs. The game features over 400 different spells that varies from simple attack spells like Lightning Bolt to rituals that affect the entire world like Second Sun.
