IMPORTANT: Make sure CAPS LOCK is not on while playing this game, otherwise some buttons won't work. It's a flaw in the code, sorry about that...

The Rise of a KING takes a turn to the role playing genre, but still retains the action from its predecessor. If you havent played The Rise of a Knight, then there is a "Story so Far" section where you can watch a slideshow of what happened in the first game.

Explore the world in and around Stormguard Castle as you start off on your first day as a Knight. Times are getting dark with the current king and many others behaving strangely while more and more dangerous creatures appear, causing trouble all over the kingdom. You seem to be the only one to see the obvious corruption, and its up to you to dissolve this matter...

Major bug alert.

King doesn't speak to me unless i talk to the mage.
Mage does not open his door unless i talk to the king.


SeethingSwarm responds:

I think you might have thought that the main castle doors were the mage's door. In fact, his door is a ways off ot the left. It's not a bug, just a judgement error on your part. The castle can be quite confusing, so I'm not quite innocent myself :)
