What is Guilds Of Torhal?
Guilds of Torhal is a multiplayer cooperative tactics game. You take control of a guild of adventurers, and send them out on missions with your friends to further your influence in Torhal. You manage a roster of adventurers, assigning out guild training and gear, and sending them off to battle.
You choose your starting guild from the 4 main factions of Torhal, and as your guild gains more influence, you can specialize the training regiment and gear that your members are equipped with to adventure. As you play with your friends, your alliances grow in strength and you gain more influence in Torhal. Acquire armor, weapons, and magical spells through your alliances, and amass an armory for your adventurers!
Remember – no guild can rise to success on their own. Make alliances, scheme about your domination of Torhal, and adventure to secure the region. Aid your friends, and reap the benefits of their success.
Why are we making this?
Most games today are better to play as a single player experience, or in small groups only of people you know. Even MMOs are designed with the idea that you can play a “massively multiplayer” game by yourself, or with only a small group of friends to be truly successful. I want a game where community is rewarded, where helping others is praised, and where working with strangers might be just as rewarding as working with close friends. With that in mind, here are the tenets that guide the development of Guilds of Torhal:
1. It is always better to play with someone.
2. Anyone can play with anyone.
3. Helping others helps yourself.
4. The people you know is important.
