  • Dominions 5 - Warriors of the Faith

You are a God! You are master and ruler of a loyal nation. You have unimaginable powers at your disposal. You have claimed this world as yours. But there are others who stand in your way. You must defeat and destroy these pretenders. Only then can you ascend to godhood and become the new Pantokrator.

In Dominions you take control of a powerful being that rules a nation and aspires to godhood. The type of Pretender Gods can vary from magically powerful arch mages to huge titans or large monuments. The pretender gods have different strengths dependent on what kind of god you choose and what nation you play.

When you start the game you decide what kind of god you are and how your Dominion affects your lands, followers and sacred soldiers. It is an expression of your divine might and the faith of your followers. If your dominion dies, so do you. Your dominion also inspires your sacred warriors and gives them powers derived from your dominion.

In order to win and become the one true god you have to defeat your enemies one of three different ways: conquer their lands, extinguish their dominion or claim the Thrones of Ascension.

New for Dominions 5 is that a God's bless effects can be customized in detail giving a new set of choices for the aspiring Gods. Battles have also received a major change and now feature simultaneous movement for all participating units. Fireballs and arrows will now fly at the same time as everyone is moving and watching large battles will be quicker than before.

Dominions is set in a fantasy world that draws inspiration from historical nations, cultures and myths. You will not encounter the elves of conventional fantasy in this game. Instead you might lead a nation of vanir from old norse myth. Aztecs, romans, israelites, greeks, kievian rus and lovecraftian horrors are just a few of the inspirational sources of the game.

The first Dominions game was released in 2002 and was well received by strategy gamers. Since then Dominions has been much refined and Dominions series is still actively played making it one of the longest running 4x turn based strategy games.

Conquest of Elysium 5 is the next game to be released by Illwinter Game Design. It has been in development for a long time now and finally it is nearing completion. If everything works out ok it will be released in August. The Steam page for CoE 5 is available now, check it out for more information and wishlist the game if you want to get notified when it is released.

This is mainly a bug fix update, but there are a few new improvements as well. Most importantly it fixes a bug that removed excess gems from rituals if you changed the caster's magic items while he was casting it. Yomi also got a boost as their Oni now have full item slots in their spirit form as well. General Nation Overview now mentions if the nation can build underwater forts Communion Masters with conservative gem usage didn't try to use spells of higher levels Oni Spirits now have full item...

This is a quick fix for a problem the occurred when forging unique items in the previous update. General Forging unique items prevented any further forging that turn, fixed.

This is a bug fix update. Most notably it fixes a long standing bug where mages overcompensated when trying to hit fast moving targets, so fireballs should work better against cavalry units now. There is also a bunch of other bug fixes. As for modding, scripted events will now be resolved in a random province order. This should make it easier to create effects that affect a limited number of provinces with random events. General Aiming overcompensated for fast units, fixed. Wishing for non uniqu...

Version 5.50. This is the first time we have reached version .50 when patching a game, so ideally this update should be full of exciting stuff. But unfortunately it is only bug fixes and a few new modding features. But at least these bug fixes are quite important as Dominions could crash during the host phase without them. General Stealthing allied forces could incorrectly take over siege, fixed. More generous hit areas when clicking on sprites Dominions 5 could crash during host (pillage stage)...
