Warlords Battlecry is a real-time strategy computer game released in 2000 for Microsoft Windows. It was the first of new series of RTS games set in Steve Fawkner's successful, formerly turn-based, Warlords franchise.
The game introduced a Hero-building system, combining real time strategy elements with roleplaying elements (hero development, stats and skills). This makes the series the first to be called "roleplaying strategy", a term coined by its creator, Steve Fawkner.
There are nine Races:
- Human (Empire and Knights in Warlords Battlecry III)
- High Elf
- Wood Elf
- Dark Elf
