long, long, long, time ago there was a ruler named Garikias
which ruled all of Darien. Garikias decided to give monarchs
to each part of Darien. These monarchs were his own children.
One he gave the land or Taros. Taros was a land of the undead
and fire. To the second he gave Veruna, land of water. Another
he gave Zhon, a place of monsters, and hunters. And to the last
he gave Aramon, land of humans. The four leaders each had powers
which, if used right would make their land prosper and happy,
but if used wrong it could cause the end of Darien. Then suddenly
Garikias disappears without a trace. When that happened, as
a villager called it, all hell broken loose. That is were your
journey begins. As you make your way through the story you play
as the four races, Taros, Veruna, Zhon and Aramos.
Total Annihilation games have always had a good reputation,
this one might be an exception. The original Total Annihilation
was a huge success. Cave dog kept the game alive with regular
updates, expansion packs, and even a new unit every week. This
game was more evolutionary in the real time strategy genre,
then a revolutionary. Now, with the release of cave dog's next
installment in the Total Annihilation series, TA: Kingdoms,
we all hope it can live up to it's great expectations. Can it?
Let's find out.
