Never heard of it to be frank.

What is it and is it edible?

Well, its the sequel to Dungeon Lords, and that was an incredible game. For me at least. It picks off where the first game left off, and it takes you to the far north and farther in the hunt for the Oracle, who has secret knowledge of a Cult that has risen from the ashes of Volgar's downfall and that of the Daemon Overlord.

I'm really excited for it. :smile:

So you're seeking an Oracle to receive an Orb with which you'll find a Cult and destroy the Demon Overlord?

Why do the developers constantly think that their godawful cliche storyline will somehow seem epic if they put some random capital letters at the start of words?

No, the Overlord was killed whenever...allright, synopsis time!

Dungeon Lords: Starting out, the Hero receives a summons to the Temple of the Circene in the town of Fargrove. Once there, the Hero' directed to Seer Augustus to tell the Hero of his significance in turning the tides of the immenent war between Lord Davenmor of Fargrove and Lord Barrowgrim. Having forseen the wizard Volgar, killer of the Wizard Galdryn, take over the Daemon world, Augustus directs the hero to the Celestine, who tells of the Relics of Power. After retrieving the first Relic, the hero goes to Davenmor to implore him of the situation. This coupled with the disappearance of his daughter Ellowyn and the arrest of Valdane Graemare, the son of Lord Graemare of Rothn, Davenmor sees the Hero on towards Arindale and the Wizard Emmindor, friend of the late Galdryn. Suffice to say, the tale goes on for the quest for the relics of power. Once obtained, the Wizard Emmindor opens a portal to the Daemon world to kill Volgar, who stole all the Relics from the Chambers of Talendor, their resting place. Once at the final location, a cutscene of Volgar attempting to kill the Daemon Lord with the Relics is shown, only to see his failure and death at the Daemon's tendrils. Galdryn, surprisingly not dead, frozen in a crystal is being guarded by a ward that breaks when you slay the Daemon Lord. Game Over.

Dungeon Lords 2 - Seeing prophecies in the Sky, the wizard Emmindor calls the hero back to his tower to impart to him the resurgence of an ancient Order that threatens the cosmos of the world. He tells of an Oracle of the Orb, the secret to finding and eliminating this evil presence. It takes you far to the north to the aforementioned Kingdom of Rothn. And beyond.

oh, the Shadow Ruins. Nauselom is a tough guy to beat, but if that was it, I wouldn't complain. But, the damn Shadow Jumping is horrible. So, I just went to GameBanshee to find the way out.

In fact, being a proprietor of the game and a great supporter of it, Dungeon Lords: Collectors Edition has virtually no bugs and an involving plot line.

The whole style of Dungeon Lord's is RPG Real Time Combat. The attack styles are chained combos and skill tree is in point value system with levelling. Attribute points and skill points both stem from the same pool of points to spend. The graphics level is above average, but in no way perfect. Great names, music, sound effects, and magic.

Dungeon Lords: Orb and the Oracle is scheduled to realease June 30, 2009. It is set several months after the events in Dungeon Lords. The game is to expand the Dungeon Lords map to encompass more kingdoms, more races, and most importantly, more loot and enemies!
