Druid King is a RTS that mixes strategy and role-playing elements, with online multi-player features.

The adventure takes place in ancient Gaul. Four mighty forces battle for power: the brave Gauls, the mighty Romans, the vicious Teutons and the mysterious Druids who `weave the patterns` that make nations prosper and states decay. Using various military tactics and strategy the player must control the actions of the Gaul hero Larax and lead him to victory. Find more on the Druid King website
