Eye of the Beholder III: Assault on Myth Drannor is a computer game released in 1993. It was developed and published by Strategic Simulations, Inc. for DOS, FM-Towns and PC-9800. It is the sequel to Eye of the Beholder II: The Legend of Darkmoon.
Plot[edit | edit source]
After the events of Eye of the Beholder II: The Legend of Darkmoon, the heroes tell the patrons of a local tavern about their success over Dran Draggore and how it saved the town. Afterwards, a mysterious man enters the tavern and asks the heroes to save the ruined city of Myth Drannor, which is ruled by a Lich named Acwellan.
The man then tells the heroes that they need to save Myth Drannor by getting an ancient artifact from the Lich known as the Codex. After the heroes accept the quest, the mysterious man teleports the heroes just outside Myth Drannor.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Gameplay was the same as the other two games in the series. The game ran an updated game engine, and had several improvements, such as the ability to use pole arms from the second line. While it had more focus on combat mechanics, the story line was considered lacking by fans.
Fighting in the game continued to be handled through random encounters, which allowed players to gain experience, items, and gold. The front ranks, determined by the two characters at the top of the party list, can engage in melee combat. All other characters must resort to ranged weapons or spells in order to join in the fight.
As in most Forgotten Realms games at the time, camping was required for the player to rest and heal the party, memorize spells, and save the game when necessary.
