From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

   Lands of Lore: The Throne of Chaos is a role-playing video game developed by Westwood Studios and published by Virgin Games for the MS-DOS and NEC PC-9801. It was the first installment of the Lands of Lore series. The game presents a real-time, three dimensional view from the character's perspective that is similar to the interface used on the Dungeon Master game and the Eye of the Beholder series.
   King Richard LeGrey is the leader and 40th heir of the Gladstone Keep and the White Army. Gladstone is the base of operations for all of the civilized areas. The White Alliance has been defending it from many threats for three generations. The King is worried about Scotia (Margarithe Fiston), an old witch and ruler of the Dark Army who has recently acquired a ring called the Nether Mask, which allows its user to assume any form of any power or capability.
   The player has to choose among four playable pre-made characters:

  • Ak'shel: a Dracoid, an ancient race of dragon-lizard hybrid origin, specialized in magic.
  • Kieran, a Huline, an ancient race of human-feline hybrid origin, specialized in dexterity.
  • Michael, a human specialized in strength and fighting.
  • Conrad, another human, who is a well-balanced combination of all.
   When the hero finds Roland, he learns that the Ruby of Truth has been stolen as Roland dies. When he returns to Gladstone, he sees Scotia poison King Richard and escape. It is now up to the player to save the King and defeat the evil witch Scotia. He must visit the Draracle and obtain the recipe of an elixir that will save King Richard. Once they have the recipe, the party must travel the Lands of Lore to find the ingredients, while simultaneously learning as much as possible about the Nether Mask in the hopes of defeating Scotia.
