Having negotiated the dark and dismal passages that ran under Mount Anaias your party finally discovered the resting place of the Power Gem. Fusing it together with the Firestaff, they had a weapon with which to destroy Chaos.
Ascending to the Dark Lord's chamber, the champions confronted the Evil One. Using the Firestaff to full effect, they put paid to Chaos and his evil schemes once and for all. A banquet of honour was held in gratitude for the heroes' great deeds. The meek townsfolk of Viborg called for a holiday of rejoicing - all was well with the world. However as the age of Chaos drew to an end mysterious rumblings were heard deep within the bowels of Mount Anaias. It seemed that Lord Chaos had foreseen his defeat and faked his death. Now the unreasoning mind of the Dark Lord had started to plan a hideous revenge against those who had defeated him. If the world would not yield to his mighty powers, he would destroy it. Thirteen moons after their victory feast the champions attended the Grey Lord's castle. Met at the gate by their master's apprentice, Theron, the party were told the devastating news. Chaos had appeared in a vision and revealed his plans.
As the Dark Lord put them into action he drew on the Grey Lord's life force. It seemed that Chaos had constructed a new lair and in it built a Ful Ya pit from which he mined Corbum.
The Dark Lord had placed the ore in a death square surrounded by pits and traps. The champions needed no help in being reminded of the ore's mana-sapping qualities.
It was obvious that Chaos's intentions were to break free of the Grey Lord and rule under a veil of death and despair. The world's only hope lay with the champions. Could they penetrate into Chaos's lair and dispote of the Corbum before the Grey Lord and Chaos become separated for good?
After months of speculation, Chaos Strikes Back has finally arrived. Unfortunately, as is the case with Dungeon Master, Amiga 500 owners won't be able to participate as the game will only operate in one meg or more. It comes on a games disk with a second providing a brief storyline, a character editor and a hint oracle.
Players can use either a party transferred from Dungeon Master or venture into Chaos's prison and free an alternative four heroes. Once a fully party has been assembled they are ready to enter the Dark Lord's chambers.
Chaos Strikes Back features some of the monsters found in Dungeon Master plus a whole range of new meanies.
The heroes start with no weapons - the first skirmishes have to be survived with the use of magic alone. Seasoned explorers will soon find an area known as "supplies for the quick". It is here that you'll be able to equip your team for the terrors that lie ahead.
There are four distinct routes to the Death Pillar and the Corbum ore, each designed to test your heroes' skills. These are Ku, the way of the fighter, Dain, the way of the wizard, Ros, the way of the ninja, and Neta, the way of the priest. At the end of each test lies the Death Pilar from which your party must collect the Corbum ore. Only when the champions have collected all four pieces of ore will they finally meet Chaos. However, if you think that's all there is to it, be warned! Chaos isn't about to make the same mistake twice, and this time has fortified his lair with some of the meanest nasties going. It will take an experienced and determined adventurer to dipose of the Corbum ore and foil Chaos's plans.
