Warlords is a strategic war game, fought out by eight different players, for the domination of the Kingdom of Illuria. It can be played by one to eight people, with the computer taking the remaining positions. The Kingdom of Illuria, after some severe internal disputes, has seethed under a sullen and uneasy peace. This truce has now disappeared, along with the arch-mage who imposed it. The eight empires of Illuria realize that this is their chance for total domination, a very unstable situation. Forces are being mobilized for conquest, and only one Supreme Warlord will prevail.
Your objectives in Warlords are brutally simple: to eliminate all organized opposition to your rule. To do this, you will have to control all eighty cities in the lands of Illuria, and thereby eliminate all seven opponents. There are many ways to achieve this, and brute force is just one of them. you might ally with dragons or wizards, or have your Heroes search out and wield magical swords that will tip the battle in your favor. Clever military tactics and even economic warfare are possibilities too.
Warlords II brought more continents to the game along with many new features and better graphics. Deluxe version is an enhancement of the Warlords II. Graphics are more detailed and of higher resolution, and the engine is improved by a few multimedia effects and animations.

10/8/2019 1:06:00 AM - Michael Maddox Play Now downloads the zip of the game which includes fully configured in DOSBOX. Unzip open folder then click on PLAY NOW and choose 1 for GAME, 2 for Editor, 3 for Terrain Editor. Works in fine Windows 8.1 and have a blast playing the game as well as touching up some of the army sets and so forth. What a delightful game. There are several scenarios available elsewhere in .scz format however, it can be installed using Librarian which is accessed running install.exe. Open dosbox.config in notepad or similar then edit last line as follows, then save: # START.BAT install.exe Click PLAY NOW and among the selections is Librarian which can then be used to navigate to the xxx.scz scenario and install it. to play the game re-edit file dosbox.config and save START.BAT # install.exe
10/26/2018 7:02:00 PM - Hooked I saw this on the freegame home page (top left corner)... Not sure if the messege is current or if it is the reason the play buttons are not visible... "We have suspended the emulator applet because of false virus warnings until we find a solution."
10/26/2018 6:41:00 PM - Hooked Please don't put the play buttons back, I've been addicted to this game and without it working I actually went outside today..... :-)
10/26/2018 1:01:00 AM - can you put the buttons back on so we can play warlords 2 deluxe? thank you

4/7/2017 10:14:00 AM - Michael Is it possible to revamp the Warlords series of games so that it is playable using the current O.S. i.e. WIN7, or WIN10, instead of playing it through a DOS emulator? That would be absolutely awesome. I played these games when they first came out years ago, and they are awesome.

3/27/2013 8:56:00 PM - Luke I am running this through Boxer on an iMac. When I save the game it seems to save, but when I relog and load game I just get a green map devoid of any features. Any trick to loading saved games? Cheers.
3/25/2013 12:01:00 AM - Kurt Roaming was the answer. Thanks for the guidance!
3/21/2013 7:26:00 AM - FreeGameEmpire There might be some minor changes based on your windows locale and others... the place is selected by windows itself as your home place for application data and so may be a little different. You can try to search for "AppClient" folder, which must be named exactly like this. Optionally I have also seen the AppClient folder in a Application Data\Roaming but not sure why.
3/20/2013 2:43:00 PM - Kurt Thanks for pointing me to the FAQ. The Win 7 location of "C:\Users\[User Name]\Application Data\AppClient\Packages\" with my user name in the place holder doesn't seem to exist on my PC. I get as far as "C:\Users\[UserName]\AppData" then I can't follow the file path since a AppClient folder isn't there. Any other suggestions on where to find the saved game files so I can clear out some of the old ones I don't want or need anymore? Any way to use the search feature to fine them?
3/19/2013 9:11:00 AM - FreeGameEmpire The file locations can be found in our FAQ. We currently do not support online save game storage, maybe in the future.
3/16/2013 6:51:00 PM - Kurt When I save a game, where is the file stored? Is there a way to delete a saved game? Is there a way to save a game on one computer and continue it on another?
10/28/2012 9:17:00 AM - FreeGameEmpire Hi, you can run the game easy clicking the Play NOW button on this page. Otherwise, install the dosbox and drag&drop START.BAT on the dosbox desktop icon. All should work fine.
10/28/2012 3:20:00 AM - Ray Hi, i have downloaded al zip, warlords 2 deluxe, and dos box. i have windows 2003. What do i type in ms dos to begin the game. it comes up with things like "doesn't exist" and so on. Any help is welcomed.
9/4/2012 3:28:00 PM - warlords2fan Thanks alot! I was using windows vista and experienced some lag. In dosbox i set "cycles max", which made dosbox automatically the lag out.

1/6/2012 11:49:00 AM - FreeGameEmpire I have upgraded the game. You can now run Terrain editor or Scenario editor. Please keep in mind that you will loose all saved games after update so skip the update until you finish the game or backup the savegames. Game files locations can be found in FAQ.
12/21/2011 1:20:00 AM - This game is in the pantheon of the greatest PC games of all time. I have spent 100s upon 100s of hours with my friends playing this game. Rule Britannia is the best map by far!!
