Destruction and domination | Basics Overlord II Guide

Last update: 11 May 2016

The game can be passed in two ways. The first way is to destroy everything, what stands in Overlord's path. The second one is a so called 'domination'. It consists in overwhelming minds of week people (e.g. inhabitants of towns).

There's a question: what meaning does it have for a play? Well, if you prefer destructive behavior, your sorcery will become a mighty weapon with time. In general your character manages with everything in battle better than dominant character. On the other hand, destructive behavior causes a situation when you can be attacked by civilians, slaves, etc. They aren't any of tough enemies, but they always can constitute a small danger.

Overlord preferring dominant behavior is weaker in ordinary battle than destructive Overlord. In exchange for this it can in a flash overwhelm minds of inhabitants and slaves. What's more, people "seized" by dominant Overlord more likely stick up for Overlord.

To find out more about results of Overlord's behavior, I recommend You to acquint with chapters dedicated to collateral missions: Control Nordberg Town and Control Everlight Town.
