Developer: Infinite Interactive

Casual gaming meets high fantasy. We take a look at Infinite Interactive’s latest accomplishment …

When it comes to countries of the world, the now defunct U.S.S.R has got a lot to answer for. Although it is more commonly associated with sub-standard nuclear reactors, ethnic conflicts and vodka that can drop a horse at twenty paces, it’s also the birth place of Alexey Pajitnov, designer of the “match the coloured falling blocks” puzzle, Tetris. Since its inception in 1985, Alexey’s creation has mutated into numerous casual gaming formats ranging from PopCap’s Bejeweled and Bookworm series of games to Alexey’s own Hexic that was bundled with Microsoft’s Xbox 360 game system.

Part II: Extracts from the Chronicles of Orinocho the Mad.

“West Gate”, Kival (8 DarkLight, 1237 SE.)

“Warlords 3: Reign of Heroes” Hints and Tips – Part 1

Part I: Extracts from the Chronicles of Orinocho the Mad.

“Welcome esteemed reader to the wondrous chronicles of Orinocho, greatest of the Warrior Knights of Etheria, holder of the sacred chalice of the Sirian Order, bearer of the holy cod piece of Jurath the Insignificant and possessor of numerous other titles that I am too modest to expound upon here (but see Appendices A-D, pages 1134-1201). As your magical skills are strong enough to break the enchanted seal upon this volume, so too must your intellect be of subtle cunning and intense deviousness to acquire the knowledge within this tome. Herein can be found poems of perilous quests for ancient treasure, tales of racial conflicts that sundered entire peoples from this plane of existence, the epic saga of the Bane Wars during the Sirian Knights’ “Age of Dreams”…and the occasional salacious tavern romp at the “Wanton Wench” in Kival. It has been over 20 years since the end of the Bane Wars and the Sirian Knights are a mere shadow of their former glory. I scribe these words in the hope that they will aid you, my successor, in your charged duty of re-establishing our order in all the greatness and majesty of its recent past. Take careful heed of all that is within these pages, for it is o­nly in such a manner that you may gain the throne of WarlordTM and return our people to the prominence and power that is rightly ours. May the gods look favorably upon your fate.” – Orinocho, Grand Master of the Sirian Order.
