Russian-developed RPG/strategy game, Rage of Mages, published by Monolith
in October of 1998. Monolith will unleash Rage of Mages 2 onto retail
shelves everywhere in Spring, 1999.
Rage of Mages 2 enhances the tradition of its predecessor by combining the

on their quest to defeat the minions of the Necromancer.
