Rising Lords is a turn-based strategy with elements of card and board games. The German independent studio of Argonwood is responsible for its development.
The action of Rising Lords takes place in the Middle Ages. The player takes on the role of one of the titular lords and his task is to expand his sphere of influence.
In Rising Lords the action is shown from an isometric view. The game takes place in a turn-based mode, and we have various tasks that need to be carried out; we must not only take care of the economic background of our estates but also constantly develop them, and if necessary - wage wars against enemy forces. Sabotage plays an important role here (thanks to which you can secretly weaken the position of your opponents). At the same time, we must be careful not to damage the trust of our subjects, which may result in a revolt.
We extract resources and collect taxes, take care of production processes, build and improve settlements, and recruit knights who then take part in open battles, sieges of hostile cities or in the defence of attacked territories. During the battles, we can use skill cards that can give our subordinates an advantage over their enemies; as we progress, we not only acquire new deck elements but also develop our existing ones.
Rising Lords can be played both in singleplayer and with up to three other players; the title allows for multiplayer fun over the Internet or in the so-called hot seat mode. Interestingly, thanks to the system of interaction between the players it is possible to play some quite intricate psychological games.
The two-dimensional graphics of Rising Lords are kept in an original style reminiscent of medieval drawings. This is complemented by an atmospheric soundtrack.
