Lords of Magic is a turn-based strategy magic battle simulator similar to the classic game Master of Magic (DOS). You pick a class, choose one of the eight elements of magic to excel at, and then build up an army to take over the world of Urak. To do this, you must manage your cities and pump out new units and learn new spells.

Music

Keith Zizza did a great job with the music. There is an apropos theme for each of the individual elements and then several tracks for the outcome of battles. Each track is nicely orchestrated and epic sounding. Each track takes advantage of the high-fidelity digital stereo audio used by the programmers.

The titles come from the file names of the rip, extrapolated to fit where they appear in the game.

N/A


The music is easily ripped from the ./Wav/Music folder off from the installed path. Because the game uses WAV format, the Vorbis recording is essentially the same, so the rip is unavailable.
