Description of Sorcerer Lord

Sorceror Lord is a fun but extremely difficult single-scenario fantasy wargame due to the near invisibility of enemy forces and tough computer opponent. Tasked to gather the forces of Galanor to stem the advancing army of the Shadowlord, you must learn to organize the armies as well as use the powerful, magical Rune Rings. A variety of terrains, RPG-style troop development, and numerous fortresses and citadels to conquer and defend make this a challenging game for all warlord wannabes. Recommended for veteran players only!

My leg hairs turn blonde in the sun.

It was proven about six weeks after this game was released that the AI actually cheats. A patch was released to dumb-down the AI and keep it from cheating, but the patch was never implemented into the game disks after it was exposed. The patch may still be out there somewhere, but you may have more fun doing a hexedit on the saved game files and increasing your stats and resources to compensate.
