In which it succeeded magnificently, I think.

I have been wondering, what this gametype would be called, because in the end I have not seen any game like this (except the little deja-vu's mentioned). It contains strategy, RPG, creamed with adventurish storyline. I hope that this game starts a new genre, but I'm not patient enough to wait. If there were many games like this, I would not have time at all for real life... :-)
