Turn based Strategy, Fantsy World, various Campaigns, MP (server/LAN/hotseat), easy to handle (idiot proof addon manager / good itroduction)

Nice 2D grafics (sorry no 3D GFX)

First beeing very sceptic about this game, it turned out to be one of the best I ever played, and best of all it is free.

Too due too the fact that it is open source, there are several add ons and sure more to come.

A bit anoying is the dice roll at fights (luck is a bitch), its part of the game, but there is a mod to change that.

I have not checked out the add ons yet its just far too much.

Play online in multiple configurations; lots of races and…
