There is always a color-coded circle beneath the active character or enemy in combat, allowing you to instantly determine the relative health and spell points of that character or enemy. The Combat Statistics option toggles the numbers shown in combat, and should be switched on unless you like to make it hard for yourself. Jazhara is a mage from a distant, Middle-Eastern-inspired land called Kesh. Betrayal at Krondor: Midkemia — a realm of enchantment and ancient magic where elves, dwarves and man once battled an unimaginable evil across rifts in time and space. Whether you trust its judgement or not is your choice entirely. The game is an interactive fantasy played in nine chapter segments with specific goals in each, which when attained, move the story along.
Although there are things that could be improved a lot in some cases , the game was very satisfying. The story takes place several years after the events in Betrayal. Activision is a registered trademark of Activision Publishing, Inc. William is a Krondorian guard and exceptional fighter. The Nighthawks, who want James dead, are dark and mysterious. Replay Value: The plot's too linear to offer much replay value.
After an incredible series of twists and turns during development, the official sequel to one of the most popular role-playing games ever, 1993's Betrayal at Krondor, has finally arrived. It's an advantage the first time through because it allows a tighter, more interesting storyline but, at the same time, limits its replay value. Using alchemical equipment, it is possible to brew custom potions from a variety of ingredients. The equipment is cumbersome and heavy which leaves less room for your characters to carry treasure and other, more useful, goodies. History 1994: Dynamix, at this time a division of Sierra On-line, reorganizes their staff and cancels a planned sequel to Betrayal at Krondor named Thief of Dreams.
They come and go as the story directs them to other tasks. For example: in shops there's no real bartering process which takes the buzz out of shopping, and often results in you being ripped off by shrewd shopkeepers : you can't select multiple items, instead you have to pick things up one by one too much in a game with this many objects ; and savegame names can only be up to eight characters in length - why?! However, you can meet them again in later chapters, still carrying all their equipment. My advice is to sell the bulky apparatus right away and use the profits to buy something useful instead. One thing worth mentioning — if you want to upgrade or modify Save for Return to Krondor in any way, it would be great that you would require the permission of the author. Sierra fortunately offered to buy back the license, and the result was Return to Krondor. That just makes more sense to me. Enjoy the game to the fullest! Often they can be solved only in the following chapters.
Every particular SaveGame file will provide you with a lot of new solutions. People are being murdered and the locals are getting restless.

A thief's task of unlocking and disarming a chest is graphically represented in Return to Krondor, albeit in a somewhat abstract manner. No files were found matching the criteria specified. There are also plenty of items, spells, and equipment for you to choose from.
Along with the spells in the paths, you can also find scrolls that will give you access to more powerful spells that you might not ordinarily be able to cast. You can take these potions once those people have no further need of them i. Nearly everyone you meet has a potion or two on them. Tout ceci en mélangeant un amour sans limite pour les jeux-vidéo, un soin maximal pour nos clients et la volonté que ce que vous achetez vous appartienne vraiment. Priest spells are always successfully invoked and can be cast using spell points or, for the masochist in you, the life points of the caster. Almost all of the conversations in the game are voice-acted, and generally the acting is excellent, certainly more professional in quality than you typically see in an adventure or role-playing game.
Jazhara is a mage from a distant, Middle-Eastern-inspired land called Kesh. Each chapter in Return to Krondor is set in a very discrete, confining geographic area one room, in the case of two of the chapters , and most chapters have no subquests at all, forcing you to focus solely on your primary quest objectives. Beyond the side quests, the game designers came up with the bright idea to have the main story line split into two parts early in the game. He soon meets Jazhara, the new court mage. Return to Krondor is certainly not a massive and open-ended role-playing game set in an expansive gaming world.
Each style has certain bonuses or penalties. It's more like an exciting side mission than a sweeping adventure. Most people would assume this to be the type of character you choose to play as, but it isn't. You can always weight the game more or less heavily to the use of magic as you preference dictates. As the second computer game based on Raymond Feist's successful Riftwar series of books BetrayalAt Krondor being the first , Return To Krondor has a lot to live up to.

The Combat Speed option doesn't actually speed up the combat as you would expect, but instead affects the animation. There is nothing you can lose — no risks are guaranteed.

When you start, you will see that Gorath, the elf-like Moredhel, and one of the leading persons in the game's story have been attacked by an assassin. Gamers still not wanting to mess around with the puzzle chest can elect to have the game automatically determine whether or not the thievish Squire James is successful at opening a chest based solely upon his lock-picking and disarming skills. Gameplay is frustrating at times but you'll get the hang of the interfaces soon enough. Standard role-playing aspects include character ratings in health, stamina, strength, and speed and skill development through a logical system of experience rewards. It's easy to see how it would end up there, offering as it does some very bog-standard graphics even for a two-year-old game , a terrible interface and some seriously unpleasant voice-acting.
