Guide To Majesty's Barbarians
4:20 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
Excellent fan site Majesty - Dragon has produced a detailed guide to the Barbarian, one of the types of heroes you can recruit and send into battle in Majesty, the real-time strategy game just released by MacPlay. While this guide is a bit esoteric to those new to this game, it does cover many available strategies of solo and online play, and a dedicated reader can learn a great deal in a short period of time.
The Majesty Demo is currently enjoying a four-joystick rating on Macgamefiles.com; if you haven't taken this unusual and attractive title for a spin, be sure and download it.
Here's an excerpt from the guide:
Barbarians, the worshippers of Krolm, are reviled in Ardania. And I donít just mean in the world of the game. I also mean among the multi-player community. Barbarians are banned from gameplay more often than someone with a 2000 ms ping or a propensity to quit 4 days into a game. The problem is that the merely adequate Barbarian player can roll over even an expert at Dauros/Agrela or Krypta/Fervus in only a few game days, even on a map designed to keep the players apart for a while. If you level the playing field and lower the starting money, the Krolm option seems fruitless. With no Sovereign Spells, especially Healing, beyond those from the Wizards, and no way to resurrect the fallen, no sensible Majesty player wants to enter a long-term game with the Barbarians as his main force. Well, who needs sense when they can have the Rage of Krolm!?!?Trust us, this will make a lot more sense after a few days playing the full game. With a few more shopping days to go, Majesty will be a well-appreciated gift for any fan of this style of game. For more details on the game itself, be sure to read our preview.
