"Dominion of Darkness" -story of the evil overlord

9 months ago
"Dominion of Darkness” is a strategy/RPG text game in which the player takes on the role of a Sauron-style Lord of Darkness with the goal of conquering the world. He will carry out his plans by making various decisions. He will build his army and send it into battles, weave intrigues and deceptions, create secret spy networks and sectarian cults, recruit agents and commanders, corrupt representatives of Free Peoples and sow discord among them, collect magical artifacts and perform sinister plots.Note – one game takes about 1 hour, but the premise is that the game can be approached several times, each time making different decisions, getting different results and discovering something new. Feedback is very much welcome. Very, very much. Altough game is playable and winnable now, I am still working on improving it, so all suggestions are appreciated.

Yeah I remember you advertising this on IF Hub.

No feedback on the actual game since I haven't played it, but glad to see more people going full tilt on the dark overlord protagonist concept. 

(And now you got one responsive post on here at least, which is already one more than you got at IF Hub)

I mean some would say I write nothing but villain protagonists. (Not entirely true, but I do tend write a lot of them)

Anyway, just look through my profile of stories here and you'll see. Major ones focusing on villain protagonists in a fantasy setting would be Eternal, Necromancer, Rogues and The Pure, The Vile and the Deadly.

Though there's other stories of mine that have them in a scifi or modern setting as well.
