Dominions 3: The Awakening, developed by Illwinter Game Design and published by Shrapnel Games, is known for both its amazingly deep content driven gameplay and the fantastic community that has made the game a favorite around the world. In a time when games have become disposable it is a joy to see multi-player games cranking up each day, years after Dominions 3: The Awakening's initial release to rave reviews.
One community project that has been under development for some time is the Dominions 3 Wiki. Spearheaded by Karsten Hiddemann with contributions by many other community fans, the Dominions 3 Wiki is now ready for its prime time debut. You can reach it by visiting:
Currently boasting over seven hundred articles the Wiki is a valuable tool whether you're a complete noob or a seasoned veteran. Main categories include Game Basics, Strategy, Tactics, Game Mechanics, Grimoire, and Community while sub-categories cover everything from getting started to battlefield tactics to living manual errata and more. Of course as a Wiki anyone can contribute so expect to see new information, tips, and tactics in the future. And with a game as rich as Dominions 3: The Awakening, don't expect to see an end to content anytime soon.
Of course while the Wiki is a great source of information don't forget to also stop by the community forums to interact with your fellow fans, set up multi-player games, and download the latest mods and utilities. Visit the Shrapnel Games' Dominions 3: The Awakening forum by going here:
To celebrate the official debut of the Dominions 3 Wiki Shrapnel Games is offering a very special sale on the game. From now until October 25th you can purchase Dominions 3: The Awakening for only $44.95! That's ten dollars off its regular price!
Dominions 3: The Awakening is THE fantasy turn-based strategy game. Available for Windows, Mac, and Linux as a physical product only (one disc supports all systems) Dominions 3: The Awakening supports up to twenty-one players (AI or human), making it the go-to choice for PBEM strategy gamers.
The core game, pre-patch, is an embarrassment of gameplay riches. We're talking fifty plus nations, three different eras which influence magic, fifteen hundred unit types, six hundred spells, and three hundred magic items. Post-patch you'll get more, more, more. A steady stream of patches over the years has constantly added new content to the game all for the low cost of nothing. Why get ripped off by other games which charge you $5 or $10 for a couple of new maps or other "DLC" when Dominions 3: The Awakening has released essentially several expansion packs worth of additional material for nothing?
Additionally, Dominions 3: The Awakening is extremely mod-friendly and easily supports additional homebrewed maps. If you're a fan of fantasy you'll find someone out there has made a map right up your alley.
If you have yet to take the plunge into the game that Brett Todd of PC Gamer called "mad, bad, and dangerous to know...a threat to your health and sanity through sheer addictiveness", or you have friends that have not yet succumbed to the joy of Dominions 3: The Awakening, this is the time to get involved! Grab the game for only $44.95 (for one week only) and dive into the Dominions 3 Wiki! Before you know it you too will be master of your own domain!
