DRAKKHEN

A player may freely travel the entirety of Drakkhen's game world not long after beginning a new game, although this can be unwise in practice. Chance encounters with hostile monsters are regular, but in contrast to other RPGs, the player may be attacked while stationary. All battles are automated by default but allow the player to micromanage their four combatants.

Dusk of the Gods

The game plot takes place in the time shortly before Ragnarök, an epic battle at the end of the world in Norse mythology. The player assumes the role of a fallen warrior (an Einherjar) tasked by the god Odin
to attempt to change the destiny of the gods and avert their fall during the coming war. Although the title takes some liberty with the accepted mythos, most elements are well represented and hence can be considered semi-educational.

Hero Quest

A great PC version of the equally underrated board game of the same name from Games Workshop, Hero Quest is an isometric tabletop strategy/RPG game that simplifies RPG statistics without simplifying
gameplay. As in the board game, up to 5 players can play the game as wizard, elf, barbarian or dwarf in a quest to banish the evil wizard. Secret doors, traps and treasure abound in this turn-based
mission-based game. Good game in every respect and severely underrated.

Ultima I - The First Age of Darkness

Ultima is set in the fictional world of Sosaria, a land broken into four different continents. The land is ruled by a total of eight different lords, two for each of the world's four land masses. The four continents contain two castles each, where quests can be obtained by the player. There are two types of quests given out in the castles—one entails visiting a certain location on the main map, the other killing
a specific type of monster in the dungeons. Fulfilling the former type of quest gives stat boosts; the latter gains the player an important item needed to reach the endgame.

Ultima VII - The Black Gate

Ultima VII - The Black Gate is the first game in the mainline Ultima series to use dialogue trees. The first trilogy only allowed simple interaction while the second trilogy used a keyword-based dialogue. Ultima VII retains the old keywords themselves but uses a dialogue tree where dialogue options are picked with a mouse rather than entered on keyboard , previously, the players had to enter a keyword which instead
of getting through dialogue they could just guess by randomly entering words to see which got the result they wanted. Now, the keywords only appear when they are actually learned beforehand in the game due to the plot.
