'Stranger' Steiger Character Revealed - Screens

by Rainier on May 8, 2007 @ 8:47 a.m. PDT

Stranger is a real-time strategy game, with elements of role playing games set in a world, split in two parts, surface and a subterranean one, which are in a tenuous balance. Stranger will also feature multiplayer, although details beyond "The players may play on their own, or unite in teams" are a bit sketchy.

The game Stranger is set in a magical world of its own. The whole universe and its inhabitants will immerse players in a hostile world full of tough encounters and battles. As players take control over three distinct heroes, the story unfolds as these three fight to save their immortal souls and overcome their destiny.

Kagar, Steiger and Mordlock are very different characters, but yet share the same destiny. Wrongfully expelled from their home world for the use of magic, these three find themselves teleported to a strange and hostile land, full of fearsome monsters and relics so powerful to tear armies to pieces. Having been enemies in the world they come from, all of them know that the key to survival is to stick together and fight side by side and combine their abilities if they ever want to make their way back home and take revenge on those who expelled them…

In his home world, Steiger was an educated spy. His last quest was to investigate the bizarre happenings in the City of Wizards. Therefore he knew how to survive in hostile surroundings and adapted very quickly to the world of Stranger, called Kront. Steiger is perhaps the most flexible of our heroes. His ability to powerfully wield an axe in melee helps him to get rid of monsters getting too close. But his skills in using a crossbow are unsurpassed and help him decimate enemies before they come close, including flying ones.

Steiger is not only a valiant fighter because of his fighting ability, but also because of his excellent vision and hearing. While others may pass unaware, Steiger "feels" hidden magic artefacts and machines that could aid his course.

Already being deadly himself, Steiger's full power is to be seen when he is leading a squad of units. His mastery in using the green spectrum of magic crystals allows him to heal wounded soldiers and even to resurrect dead ones. Facing an army that will stand up every time you knock them over might be found hard to overcome…
