    War Wizard reminds me of the game but it's not it.

    You are starting WarWizard in the small cabin and then arrive to the big city.
    mondblut is absolutely right, he remembered most of the shareware Ultima clones.
    I could add only this one:

    And probably this one SSI game as well:

    Warwizard really reminds me a lot of this game but looking at this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1MKoA4C26U it's 100% not what i played. In my case you start in a village, with several houses and other people around. And the big city is different. Thanks for the suggestions

    Looking for an RPG with lots of brown, is like looking for a person with a head. I think that mobygames site might help!

    If you find a game that kinda looks like the one you're searching for graphics or gameplay-wise, and is from roughly the same era, googling "Games similar to [X]" also brings up a bunch of possible matches.

    It's Thunderscape on the second page.
    It starts within a castle and then moves into the captured Gryphon Keep, not a cave.

    I haven't played it. These days I've been looking for old games and I have a lot of names. Supposedly it was game of the year or rpg of the year in 1995.

    Yep. AoD is a very good game. It was a bad year for the genre, though, games were few and far between. AoD, Stonekeep, Thunderscape, Ravenloft 2. Shareware RPGs helped. It was a year of Exile 1, for example.

    Can you recall the magazine? PCGamer or something?

    https://archive.org/details/pcgamer-cdroms

    Well, I can go through myabandonware.

    If PC only then not Abandoned Places 1-2

    Amberstar...
    Amulets & Armor
    Arx Fatalis...
    eh just scroll through each. Its only 60 pages of games.

    edit---
    Maybe I should download all of these. Seems abandonware is slowly becoming STEAMWARE!

    I should get back to Azalta. Its fucking easy to map the cities & dungeons (the continent is a fucking mess though).

    I'd edit the text screen though....

    Edit....
    I so wanted to get a developer copy of this but nada. Returned as address wasn't valid. Oh well.

    It must have been Todd's magnum opus. Came out in 1998, its called TES Adventures - Redguard. Your brain probably tried to suppress the memories of playing it because its too good and its genius needs to be enjoyed afresh every 25 years or so.

    I believe that description fits Teudogar and the Alliance with Rome. Is that it?

    Hey thanks for the suggestion. I actually managed to download and run the demo without any problems https://web.archive.org/web/20160324183107/http://www.teudogar.com/downl.htm
    It's not that game, and in Teudogar NPCs move independently from the player so it's not the system i described.

    I found the game thanks to you! It is not Teudogar but from the same developer, his earlier game Darghul. The game is pretty obscure but i managed to find a YT video and it matched perfectly how i remember it. It seems that the developer was making a remake of darghul as late as 2013 but there's no info after that. https://web.archive.org/web/20130914071650/http://darghul.com/newe.htm By the way, the game was only released in German so that's probably why it was so hard to find. https://www.mobygames.com/game/darghul
    Thanks again!

    iirc, in combat you and your opponent move at once, roguelike style.

    Nice, glad I could help.
