The Battle for Wesnoth is a turn-based tactical strategy game with a high fantasy theme.

Build up a great army, gradually turning raw recruits into hardened veterans. In later games, recall your toughest warriors and form a deadly host whom none can stand against! Choose units from a large pool of specialists, and hand-pick a force with the right strengths to fight well on different terrains against all manner of opposition.

Wesnoth has many different sagas waiting to be played. Fight to regain the throne of Wesnoth, of which you are the legitimate heir... step into the boots of a young officer sent to guard a not-so-sleepy frontier outpost... lead a brutal quest to unite the orcish tribes... vanquish a horde of undead warriors unleashed by a foul necromancer, who also happens to have taken your brother hostage... guide a band of elvish survivors in an epic quest to find a new home... get revenge on the orcs by using the foul art of necromancy...

There are at least two hundred unit types, sixteen races, six major factions, and hundreds of years of history. The world of Wesnoth is absolutely huge and only limited by your creativity — make your own custom units, create your own maps, and write your own scenarios or even full-blown campaigns. You can also challenge up to eight friends—or strangers—and fight in epic multiplayer fantasy battles.

Hi. I have bad habit of restarting source code of WesGothic, but I think the version 7 will be the best one once it's finished.

Currently, in WesGothic 7.0.5 we have: 4 maps (including 2 unfinished), 12 playable factions (each one should have 7 available types of units for recruiting once it's finished), unfinished mechanic of respawning animals on the maps, unfinished mechanic of spawning in villages their residents, very unfinished mechanic of buying items in villages, and mechanic of recalling limited amount of powerful units.

Fans of Fire Emblem will eat this right up. And with all the extra downloadable content ( mostly scenerios but a few others) makes for a truly great FREE game.

Man, if I knew I could get this game on Desura I would have been a member ages ago. Used to play this back in 2008, the good old days.
