The Aethra Chronicles is an in-depth roleplaying game where you build a party of three adventurers (somewhat painstakingly so with all the different options) before venturing out on your epic quest! You can also acquire hired helpers during the game, for a maximum party of six heroes! This RPG was apparently based on the real-world Rolemaster pen-and-paper RPGs, which helps explain its depth. The presentation of the game is good, with detailed graphics and MIDI music, although the music repeats rather frequently. The gameplay is classic PC RPG type stuff, with certain elements borrowed from the SSI "Gold Box" series of games. Definitely not a game to play casually, but if you're looking for an in-depth long-term investment, this might be your game. (Probably download and play offline if that's the case ...)
