Knights of Legend

The game is set in the fictional land of Ashtalarea, where the evil Pildar has imprisoned the Duke, the ruler of the land, and Seggallion, a knight who had stopped Pildar in the past. The player leads a band of adventurers who try to free the prisoners and stop Pildar.

The game is a standard role-play game, with the classic races of dwarves, elves and humans available for players to make up their party of adventurers. The game also adds a novel race called the "Keldar", which had the power of flight. Quest-givers in various towns direct players to areas of the larger world map, which lead to premade map sites where an item is set to be retrieved to complete the mission.

Each quest site map has a tactical feel similar to later RPGs and the Jagged Alliance series: visibility is limited to what each character can actually see, and this visibility increases with flying characters.

Additionally, combat incorporates the concept of extensive use of fatigue. Each combat round comprises planning thrusts, parrys and jumps, sometimes in anticipation of the opponent's choices which are revealed through the "foresight" attribute.

The game has a save-game feature wherein games can only be saved by resting at an inn; this often makes for very long play sessions.
