Ishar: Legend of the Fortress is a real-time first-person dungeon crawler RPG and the first in Silmarils's Ishar trilogy. The game has a distinct assortment of systems governing its ruleset regarding combat, recruitment and level progression. It and the other Ishar games are based loosely on Silmarils's earlier RPG Crystals of Arborea, considered by fans to be "Ishar 0".
The player controls a warrior called Aramir, and he must defeat Krogh, an evil sorcerer who has killed lord Jarel. His quest begins by looking for Jarel's former party members and learning the secrets of Ishar, while simultaneously putting his own party together from honorable warriors encountered across the land.
The game was originally released in Europe in 1992 for the Atari ST, Amiga and PC. The game later became available at GOG.com along with its sequels in the Ishar Compilation package.
