Shadowland Online is a browser based social strategy game that combines fantasy with real history, developed by ZQGame. Set in a post-apocalyptic world called God’s Continent where humans fight for survival against the dark lich Ossanal and his undead army from another world.
The setting is a fantasy world full of dark shadowlands, where evil and holy magic are at odds with each other after being ravaged by the dark side. As a player, you fight for the side of good as a Nobilis, Tribal, or Mercenary member, a remnant human race from the last apocalypse of Ossanal. Even in such a chaotic world, humans continue to fight humans for influence, as a greater evil attempts to take over the entire continent. However, having realized they need a greater power to endure the undead, they have acquired a powerful piece of the St. Eloi gem, bringing the story into a twisted fantasy-meets-real-history scenario.
Through the Eloi gem, humans have reached out into real ages of history to seek the power of real historical heroes and legends. Players will be taken on an exotic conquest from ancient Rome to medieval England where massive armies and heroes such as Spartacus attempt to destroy your alien presence as you try to complete your own goals.
Shadowland Online features:
3 Races to choose from: Tribal Union, Empire of the Nobles,Mercenary Cooperative, each with unique characteristic and gameplay.
With the power of a St. Eloi Gem fragment, your kingdom wizards have created the Gate of Ages, a portal capable of allowing you to time-space travel to different ages. You will have the chance to conquer the well known ages of eastern and western history to acquire legendary heroes and find a lost St Eloi gem fragment to further empower your army, empire, and Gate of Ages back home. With your strengthened army, defend against your home’s local and regional invaders and build new alliances. Having pieces of the Eloi gem will also become increasingly important for you to open up new ages housing additional pieces of the Eloi. Through all your travels, you will have gained an epic amount of wisdom through battle with all varieties of armies ranging from Phalanx formation troops to Spartans, acquired many legendary allies to be part of your army, and have prepared enough to fight off the darkness that plagues God’s Continent.
Known heroes from King Leonidas of the 300 Spartans in Thermopylae to Genghis Kahn to King Arthur of the Round Table will not willingly come with you when you unknowingly invade their lands. But when you best them in battle they will have no choice, and when they realize why you have come, they may willingly join you. If you succeed in besting these great individuals, you will be able to command some of the greatest leaders, tacticians, and warriors of all time in an effort to save your world and theirs as well.
When the challenges in front of you are too big to handle, it’s time to join an alliance. But if you think you have what it takes to be a leader, then start your own alliance with friends and acquaintances, using battle achievements or gold coins you have won through victorious battle. Each alliance has customizable emblems, collective resources reserves, technology upgrades, personnel position management and even a salary/wage system.
Your journey starts by having your alliance declare war on local strongholds held by NPC’s and other alliances. If you manage to take one over you will have a chance to take part of a daily battle for the largest main city castle of the region. This will allow you to become a regional commander, where you can take on other regional commanders in other far off lands. If you do things right, you could become High Ruler of God’s Continent, just like the late King Rothus of the Saros Kingdom.
Massive Battles & Campaigns
The battles in Shadowland will pit large bodies of armies against other bodies. Over time the battles become larger and more complex as you grow. Initially, the Gate of Ages stands as your main entry into battle, where battles consist of a few units vs. a few units. But, when you have reached level 10, God’s Continent opens up to you, alliances are formed, and you begin engaging in larger stronghold vs. stronghold battles with larger groups of troops under your command. When you have taken over the region, you can start engaging in massive large region vs. region battles. During your expansion process, you will have the ability to return to the gate of ages for more time-bending battles, and take over larger boss strongholds for hero acquisition with the help of four allies.
How well you equip, hire, position your formation and level up your forces, will determine your victory. Victories can yield many rewards, especially alliance battles.
Expansive and changing ecosystem
Discover the world around through migration. As you move from small region to larger region in your conquest of expansion and victory, you’ll find yourself encountering dynamic new ecosystems full of never before seen castles, enemies, alliances, and undead.
