HEROES OF MIGHT AND MAGIC IV|
When a cataclysm destroys Erathia, Emilia Nighthaven loses everything. Orphaned and alone in a strange new world, she organizes the frightened survivors so they can defend themselves against those who prey on the weak. But then the Immortal King Magnus appears and demands that she give up the throne of the kingdom she founded. Not only does he have the merciless Dragon Golems at his disposal, but also a device capable of controlling the minds of those who come near him.
How can Emilia defend her kingdom against that kind of power? Soon, even her friends will unwittingly become her enemies.

|Hero Classes, Creatures and Armies - Each player can control up to 8 armies, each consisting of up to 7 individual hero-characters and/or troops of creatures. 11 starting Hero Classes, each with two starting skills (Barbarians have 3), and 37 advanced Hero Classes. 9 Hero Primary Skills, each with 3 associated Secondary Skills (27 total). Hero-characters and creatures have similar stats: Damage, Hit Points, Speed, Movement, Spell Points, Shots, Luck, and Morale. Hero-characters of any class can equip themselves with any artifact. Creatures have a backpack so that they may carry (but not equip) artifacts.|
|Adventure Map - Six town types: Academy, Haven, Preserve, Asylum, Necropolis and Stronghold. More than 300 Adventure Map structures to interact with. Resource mines appear in multiple states: undeveloped resource deposit, working mine, abandoned mine (guarded by creatures), and run-out mine (no longer producing resources). New "Fog of War" map effect - clear for recently explored terrain, gray in areas visited in the past, and black for areas not yet visited. Watch out for Wandering Monsters! If they find any of your armies and think they can take them out, prepare for battle.|
|Combat - Each combat screen grid can be a different terrain, with associated bonuses and negatives for Hero Classes/Creatures. Hero-characters can participate in combat - they can move, attack, defend and retaliate just like creatures. Combatants can face in 8 different directions on the Combat Screen. In siege combat, Creatures at the base of a town wall can attack defenders at the top of a wall and vice-versa.|
The Might and Magic series was created by Jon Van Caneghem, with the first game released in 1986. It is considered one of the defining examples of early RPGs, along with Ultima, Bard’s Tale and Wizardry. The Heroes of Might and Magic series of turn-based strategy games was spun off, with its first game released in 1995, and includes such popular hits as Heroes of Might and Magic IV and Heroes of Might and Magic V.
