Elysium may be filled with vicious creatures, powerful magic, and warring factions, but it's a pleasant and familiar land to anyone who's enjoyed the Dominions series. As in the Dominions games, warring civilizations ally with diabolic powers, ancient gods, and elemental beings to take control of Elysium and build an empire. But unlike the Dominions games, this turn-based strategy title has players battling each other and the AI over a tile-based world.

Max the Knight is a typical adventurer. He collects absurdly powerful loot, wanders through dungeons and enchanted forests, and quests after a wealthy princess. When he acquires enchanted ability-enhancing items after defeating yet another vicious creature, he even wonders "Do these stats make me look fat?" How does Max pursue the ultimate adventuring kit while pursuing the wealth that only rescuing a princess can grant? With pinball, of course!
