Legions of Lore is a free online, multiplayer strategy game. The game is turn-based and territory-based, in the spirit of Risk or Diplomacy. Players control provinces and compete against each other for control of the map. They recruit and order troops, research new abilities and units, cast spells, find artifacts, and make and break treaties. Legions of Lore features four unique genres to play as, each with its own strengths, unit sets and mechanics. These are Fantasy, Horror, Science Fiction and Adventure. The game is meant to be slow-paced as turns typically each last 24 hours. Playing a turn usually takes anywhere form a few minutes to half an hour. This setup gives players the flexibility to play their turns as their schedules allow, and gives opportunity to carefully consider moves and participate in diplomacy.
Legions of Lore is completely free and browser based so there is no software to download. It displays best in Firefox or IE and isn't tested yet in other browsers.
