Darkness Over the Land

“Only Evil and Greater Evil exist and beyond them, in the shadows, lurks True Evil. True Evil, Geralt, is something you can barely imagine, even if you believe nothing can still surprise you. And sometimes True Evil seizes you by the throat and demands that you choose between it and another, slightly lesser, Evil.”
–Andrzej Sapkowski, The Last Wish

The Battlefields of Terrinoth

Preview the Campaign and Skirmishes of BattleLore: Command

The Flesh Ripper Brutes roared and reared at the guard so he sliced at their bellies, blood spilling onto the ground as he killed two with one stroke. A third leapt onto his back, but before it could bite he stabbed the spearpoint of his poleaxe deep into the beast’s mouth. The others ran off in fear. He took a deep breath and looked around. Coming towards him was an ugly, gargantuan demon wielding a scythe as big as a man: Ravos the Ever-Hungry. The guard recognized Ravos and suddenly knew his own death was imminent, but killing Ravos meant saving his homeland, and so he had no choice.

Valiant warriors and vicious demons go to war in BattleLore: Command, an application for iOS, Android, and PC. Whether you command the Daqan army in combating the worst threat they have faced for centuries, or lead the ravenous demonic hordes of the Uthuk Y’llan into Terrinoth, BattleLore: Command offers you the chance to fight epic fantasy battles and wield arcane powers in a variety of tactically challenging missions.

Today we will look at some of the battles that await …read more

However, a few powers got more exciting tweaks. Protect/Unleash saw some big changes. Protect was modified to give more control to the character, and Unleash now does twice as much damage. Also, for you wannabe dark siders out there, Unleash’s mastery upgrade is absolutely brutal. The dreaded Force lightning now well and truly lives up to its reputation!

The other power to see some major enhancement is Battle Mediation. We’ve been hearing that this power needed some punch, so we’ve changed its basic ability. Now, instead of adding Advantage to checks, it adds Success. Very few abilities do this in the game, so Battle Meditation has a unique and …read more
