There was really cool game i enjoyed a lot when i was a kid it was called Legend. Ever heard of it?

The deal was you have a band of four charactors that you take around different citys and dungens kicking behind. Im finding it hard to describe other game aspects as my memory is sketchy.

Not even sure it was deffinetly called legend...

hmm hope anyone has a clue about what im on about...

Im guessing it came out around the same time as Eye of the beholder?
some things that might jog the memory are "going beserk" and "riding a nag" it was a truely great game...

It might be this game, but at any rate it would be a good idea to create a new thread for your query, @cehole, since it's likely to get lost in a thread as long as this one.

Default Knights of Legend

I have been looking for a rpg that came out sometime in the early 90'es.
I believe the name was something like Warrior Knights. The combat system was fairly involved, with the player choosing the way to attack every combat round. You had moves like Kick, Thrust, Low Sweep, High Sweep, Berserk etc.
Like other rpg's you created a group of heroes and walked around the world map to fight monsters. I remember there being a race with wings to choose from, plus Barbarians and other common races.
If I remember correctly, the only way to save the game was to sleep at an inn. So you always needed some spare coins, to make sure you could save your progress.
The box cover was a picture taken of a muscular man dressed in chain-mail and wielding a sword. I believe there was red and blue colours in the background, and fog surrounding the "hero". The rest of the box might have been brown or grey...
I cannot remember the developer, but I believe there was some kind of grid involved in their logo.

That is about all I remember. Anyone recognize this game?

heh!
After months of searching I posted my request here. Now, a couple of hours later, I finally remember the title...
Knights of Legend.
Is this one available anywhere?

It's available at Home of the Underdogs. I'd give you a link, but I think that would be against the forum rules. Should be easy enough to find there anyway.

Lightbulb Knights of Legend

Well hello to you.

I congratulate you for having this website. Is a great site full with great games that sometime in the we played, and for any reason we don't have them anymore.

Well, I searched through your site, and I found that you still don't have Origin's "Knights of Legend". I have it, and according with mobygames is an abandonware (http://www.mobygames.com/game/dos/knights-of-legend). So I would like to share it with you, because is very nice game.

Some review about it (even though I have not played it in some years):

The world is big, complex, full of surprises. Playing KOL is like reading a great fantasy illustrated book. You can play as a human, dwarf, elf, and klvar (or something like that). Each race has a lot of subraces that have different abilities and lacks.

The NPC are very important here, because you have to discover your tasks by talking to them (literally), and if they dislike you, you will have to find a way to get that mission.

Gameplay is non linear. You can travel through the world and make your life as monster hunter.

You can also play as a solo character or as team (no, it doesn't work in a net), when you manage different characters.

Well, that is, in a very wide view, KOL.

If you like RPG, and old games, you have to play KOL.:laugh:

Out of ESA protection, and doesn't seem to be sold anywhere anymore.

Approved.
