Treasures of the Savage Frontier is a Dungeons and Dragons computer game set in the Forgotten Realms. It was developed by Stormfront Studios and published by Strategic Simulations, Inc. and WizardWorks for the Amiga and DOS. A sequel to Gateway to the Savage Frontier, it continues exploration of the Savage Frontier.

PlotEdit

A few weeks after the events of Gateway to the Savage Frontier, Amelior Amanitas magically summons the Heroes of Ascore to eliminate the last remaining troops of the Zhentarim from the dwarven city of Llorkh.

Afterwards, the party is given a seemingly simple mission—to protect ambassadors of the "Lords' Alliance", which holds together the different cities of the frontier. However, the ambassadors are kidnapped; the Zhentarim and its allies, the Kraken Society, and the Hosttower of the Arcane plot to break up the alliance in order to conquer the region; and the party is framed as traitors.

Much of the game is devoted to having the players attempt to clear their names, usually done by completing a mission in each town of the Lords' Alliance, and alert the alliance's leaders of the plot. The final mission, which does not necessarily fit in the overall plotline, involves retrieving a treasure held by a dragon.

To uncover the plot, the player has to collect two different sets of items:

  • Three different colors of crystals held by one of the three enemy groups, the Zhentarim, the Kraken Society and the Hosttower. This can only be done by, in melee battles, carefully selecting and attacking different enemies in the right order.
  • "Lucky papers" from each city in the game. Nominally good luck charms, when combined with the crystals, these papers spell out the entire enemy plot.

GameplayEdit

Treasures of the Savage Frontier allows characters up to level 12. Depending on the player character's actions, certain non-player characters can fall in love with them. The game allows the option to utilize allied forces, which increases the number of combatants.

The game's principal technical enhancement to the aging Gold Box engine is the addition of weather to wilderness play. Combat encounters in the snow restrict character movement and add variety to the game.

NotesEdit

  1. The game takes place only a few weeks after the prequel, which is also in 1358 DR. It is set in "Autumn", so somewhere in between Eleint 21 and Nightal 20.
