Elven Legacy is a hex-based game that is created by 1C: Ino-Co and distributed by Paradox Interactive. It was first released in 2009 and serves as a sequel to the game, Fantasy Wars. The turn-based strategy game is set in an era of magical beings such as elves, orcs, and dwarves living alongside humans. All of these groups are fighting for a land that was once inhabited by orcs. The humans previously conquered this land, and now the orcs are set for battle after a hundred years to reclaim their homeland.
The player takes on the character of a diplomat of the elves who is tasked to explore foreign territories and find out the condition of the other elves. You encounter Lord Sagittel, a complex diplomat who has a gentle side and an aggressive side. The storyline can be found in one of his journals.
At the beginning, the player chooses a mission from the campaign map after which forces are deployed into the field. The size of the troops can be supplemented by using spells to summon extra soldiers or bumping into troops that have decided to join the player’s cause. Terrain bonuses can be acquired in order to increase the chances of success of an attack. Once the objectives of each mission are met, the player is awarded with prizes.
