It is the time of the Ascension wars, when powerful creatures of several races and origins battle against one another. The prize itself is nothing short of god-hood and dominance over the land. But for any one to achieve this, they must overcome the other Pretenders and convince the world that they are indeed the creature to worship. Dominions 2: The Ascension Wars is a 4X turn-based strategy game played on a world map. Starting from a randomly generated or pre-designed map, players choose from among 17 civilizations and the avatar "pretender god" creature with which to conquer all others. From this new kingdom, players manage resources in their provinces and assemble armies (a commander, and any additional units) who are able to move between the provinces, conquer new lands and perform other tasks.

At the most basic level, Dominions II is similar to Risk. It is also similar to Sid Meier's Civilization. (Wikipedia)

Download #1 is the game disc image, containing Mac, Win and Linux versions 2.02 of the game.

Download #2 is the updater to version 2.16. It must be applied to a virgin copy from the game CD (i.e. if you have entered the CD key into version 2.02 then you must replace it with a copy from the game disc image before applying the update).

Additional information about the game can be found on the developer's web site. The game can still be purchased for Windows and Linux, but not for Mac.

The documentation in the Manual download can also be found on the developer web site.

The game uses SDL Frameworks 1.2.6. The SDL installer is on the game disc image. You may need to install SDL from an administrator account.
