The game holds 5 different quests that can be played, like
"The dragon merchant" where you have to capture a dragon with a magic lamp.
"The hunt": hunt or be hunted,
"The wumpus game": hunt 4 magic wumpus creatures,
"The land beyond" and
"The ninth mirror".
Also a new quest can be created.
After a quest is selected you'll have to assemble your party. Each character can be chosen from one of the 12 different origins, all having typical characteristics: "Northlanders" being hunters and trackers, "Gauls": thieves and pirates, "Argos": mystical monks, the people of "Zur": fishermen,...
Once a character is selected, you can equip them with special skills like: Axe handling, bow handling, the power to revive, heroism and healing hands. When all characters are created you're ready to start your quest.
You'll find yourselves looking down onto a map, in the center stands your crew. Nearby is a village. In the village different houses can be entered, each house selling and/or buying equipment and magic potions to be used in combat.
In order to complete your quest many lands should be walked and many creatures shall be fought. All fights are turn-based. The number of moves that can be made in each turn differs from the number of characters and the number of action points each character has.
When a battle is won all standing fighters will increase in skill: making you stronger, aim better, heal more,... all to be used in the battles to come.
