Terra Magna is a hardcore fantasy roguelike, placed in large world.

The key feature of Terra Magna is cross-genre gameplay - it is RPG/strategy, where player is able to lead dwellers of Terra Magna in massive fights, filled with medieval weapon and magic. The world of Terra Magna will be divided into many factions, which will interact with each other in politics as well as on the battlefield. Right now we've took our place in fight between Goblin Union of Haalt, dwelers of The Goblin Forests, and The Yellow Empire, powerful human invaders.

Also battle system is considered to be very complex and realistic. To improve realism most of skills are capped for classes-archetypes and depends on the size of creatures.

Another key feature is weapon types and magic schools, which are considering as unique ways to harm opponents, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Magic is planned to be divided into 5 circles by power and 3 levels in addition. Adepts, masters and great masters have unique spells of each circle, and that's planned to include at least 15 levels in each magic school plus unique Archmages' ones.

Right now it's Alpha version of the project, and is currently in active (but quite lazy) development, which was started in April 2018.

Global map


Fight between 2 patrols on the tactic map


Well, we gonna lose this


And my legs gonna cutted alongside my head, if i wouldn't run from this goblin and this fight. Light infantry is not too powerful soldiers, but they are strong enough to kill adventurer without armor.


If i would be more experienced and better armored, this tactic tile could help me to survive. Still its just a second before escape.
