Guide your mage to the top ranking in Book of Mages! RPG with great story&multiple-endings

Book of Mages is a deep RPG game with great story, multiple-endings and a complex turn-based combat system. Choose who you want to be in the world of mages. Will you join the evil Black Robes, or the righteous White Robes? Will you become a traitor, a hermit, or even the Great Mage?

This is a game that will keep you entertained for ages. It has a great sense of adventure and huge amount of detail. It has multiple endings and 6 clans to choose from. Will you join the evil Black Robes, or the righteous White Robes? It's all you could ask for in an RPG. Put on your best robes and have it!

The learning curve might be steep, but it is worth it as you can replay the game many times with different outcomes!

I think Poison Water is the strongest clan! Here is my build advice.

Don't waste any points on defense bolts! On your attack turn you should always use poison wave so you don't need them! Also, don't waste any points on damage! As the clan leader said, damage is not important, just add more poison. Get additional high and low and attack bolts as well as high and low counter attacks!

By saving points by avoiding damage and defense bolts you can get super high mana and health needed to defeat Burning Hill. People might think damage is important to defend against a combined attack but each point in damage costs 3 and only protects 15 health, 3 points in health gives you 30. Putting points in health instead of damage gives you double the defense from combined attacks!

Also I feel reduce special is under rated. Reduce special is very powerful against Ice Land and Chaos Desert. Using decrease special against chaos desert can allow to beat them without using tons of mana, though regardless you should have tons of mana due to the points you've saved. With items and points my poison water mage had more than 2010 mana at the end!

My childhood favourite

Played it a ton years ago but this doesn't seem to be working anymore. Anyone know where this is still playable or even download?

Rating it based on memory. Can anyone still play it? It's not starting for me.

Amazing game. I've explored every inch of it and have kept playing it ever since 2010 when it was released on Kongregate. I'll probably come back to play it again in the future,
