Another excellent conversion of the board game Advanced Dungeons & Dragons from SSI - Strategic Simulations, called Dark Sun: Shattered Lands. This is the first game from a Dark Sun trilogy. The story takes place on a distant planet, where the ruling magicians destroyed all the natural resources. You have your group and you must participate in fights in the arena. These fights are here to distract citizens attention from the real issues. Here begins your struggle in the fight for life, or death. Your task is to escape from the arena to the mountains and come back with the opposition to beat the evil. At the beginning you will need to create four characters and what makes this game interesting is that one character can have more occupations, not just one like in any other RPG games at the time. By combination of occupation, gender and other characteristics of your character you can reach different types of spells and magic, that your character will be able to do. All of these spells are well described, with their effects, and the number of points which are necessary for them. This is a very complex game and even more experienced players can spend days to complete it. This is the advantage, but also disadvantage of this game at the same time. After some time game became a bit boring, endless wandering the vast plains and recurring battles all over again can be frustrating.
