Dungeons & Dragons: Warbands was a turn-based strategy game set in the Forgotten Realms. Players could select one of four factions, build their warbands from hundreds of unique units, and battle other players to secure control over Zhentil Keep.
The game was released as a closed beta in 2012, and went live on iOS on December 12th of the same year, however it was closed a few months afterwards. Although it was announced that the game would be released for Facebook, and Dungeons & Dragons: Heroes of Neverwinter was closed on favor of this game, Warbands was never released for Facebook.
Though Zhentil Keep has lain in ruins for nearly a century, its strategic location and rumors of hidden power have drawn the interest of four mighty factions. The Zhentarim, an evil and tyrannical society that once ruled Zhentil Keep, have at last returned. Bolstered by legions of goblinoids and undead, they are determined to reclaim their former power.
Having learned of the conflict, the Harpers, sworn protectors of liberty and natural order, joined the fight. Commanding creatures of the wild, they seek to prevent the forces of evil and tyranny from taking root.
Finally, the proud Purple Dragon Knights of Cormyr have arrived to eradicate their ancient enemy, the Zhentarim, at any cost. To this end, they have forged an unlikely alliance with a confederacy of giants, and now call themselves the Dragons of Dawn.
The stage is set. The tyrannical Zhentarim, the savage Border Horde, the virtuous Harpers, the militant Dragons of Dawn, which path will you choose?
