When your tribe decided to settle down in the unexplored territories of the Dragon Pass, you knew they would need a strong, uncompromising leader to survive, so you stepped up and claimed the mantle of chieftain. With it came the responsibility of making countless decisions that shape the future of your clan, its neighboring tribes and--in the big picture--the world of Glorantha itself. Will you prove to be a leader just and brave enough to lead your people towards prosperity in this strange land full of magic and dangerous creatures? Will you be able to forge lasting alliances and win the wars against those who oppose you? Do you have what it takes to unite the clans and become the very first King of Dragon Pass?
King of Dragon Pass is a game like no other. It combines strategy, adventure, RPG, and civilization sim, but it focuses mostly on storytelling. Each turn the game offers you with a choice to make and the progress of the story depends solely on your decisions. The difference between right and wrong is seldom obvious, but whatever action you take, be ready to face its consequences later. There are virtually limitless ways the story can unfold, so each play-through--whether it's a quick game or an extended campaign--promises new adventures and plot twists!

"A girl sees a great shadow of a passing bird."
Is this a bad omen? Can you laugh it off? What if you do and something bad happens later on, will you be blamed for inaction or can the village chief convince people it's a coincidence? If you act, is it enough to perform a simple ritual to ward off bad spirits or is it necessary to sacrifice cows? How many cows is enough? Too manyread more and the farmers won't be happy then either.
And where are the explorers, shouldn't they be back alread? Will there be enough harvest this year or should you launch a trading mission or attempt a heroquest? Do you have enough warriors patrolling your tula?
Leading a tribe in a land of mystery is inviting trouble and an experience full of depth.
But amazingly, the learning curve isn't steep at all, you can just start playing right away. Granted, you'll probably make bad choices and ruin your tribe, but it's a great experience anyway and maybe you'll do better next time...

This game introduced me to Glorantha and by god, it's a glorious world. Many of the designs are very well referenced from ancient history, the mythology is wonderful and super detailed...
Buy this game! You'll find yourself late at night saying "just one more turn, I'll go to bed then!", only to see the pale light of morning appearing behind your windows.
You can raise, tameread more a pack of triceratops and have your characters RIDE THEM TO BATTLE! What the hell are you waiting for?

If you have any sort of inkling towards original storytelling, strategy and role-playing you should get this game! It does things very differently from any other game and does it really well.
I think it's main quality for me is the depth of the world and the story as well as all the events that you decide on. It is quite a tough game strategically but really rewarding throughout.read more Next turn becomes an addiction and you really fell like you inhabit that world, which is very rare for in the gaming industry. Highly original in all areas and very well made.
