Book of Mages: The Dark Times is a turn-based RPG in which you play as a mage. This game is the sequel to Book of Mages: The Chaotic Period.


Your character is a mage from one of six clans. The game revolves around going to arenas and defeating other mages in turn-based combat in order to raise your rank. Your main goal is to guide your young mage to the top ranking in the titular Book of Mages.

When it comes to combat, you have four basic moves: high attack, low attack and high and low defensive moves. On top of that you'll be able to get higher level magics which can give you additional hits for your attacks or shields for when you defend. Finally, each clan has its own special moves. The most basic is usually a status effect causing attack which will help give you an edge over your opponents if you get locked in a stalemate. The Fire clans are Dark Wood, Chaos Desert and Burning Hill. The Water clans are Great Sea, Poison Water and Ice Land. Each city you can travel to is represented by one of the clans.

The game isn't all battling and climbing the social-magical ladder. As you go along and particularly when you explore the parts of a city you'll encounter different events. How you respond to these events will effect how people feel toward you, can yield items or skill points and in some cases effect the direction of the story.Are you ready to make a legend story?
