Treasures of the Savage Frontier is a Gold Box Dungeons & Dragons role-playing video game developed by Beyond Software and published by SSI in 1992 for Amiga and DOS platforms.


Summoned by Magic

A few weeks after the Gateway to the Savage Frontier events, the mage Amelior Aminitas calls upon the Heroes of Ascore to eradicate the last Zhentarim forces in the dwarven city of Llorkh. What starts as a simple mission to protect ambassadors spirals into a complex web of intrigue.

The Zhentarim, along with the Kraken Society and the Hosttower of the Arcane, conspire to dismantle the Lord’s Alliance and seize control of the frontier. The party finds itself framed as traitors, entwined in a plot that demands both diplomatic finesse and martial prowess.

Clearing Names and Unraveling Plots

The bulk of the game revolves around the party’s efforts to clear their names by completing missions in each city of the Lord’s Alliance. Simultaneously, they strive to expose the enemy plot to the alliance’s leaders.

Amidst these challenges, an unrelated yet crucial mission emerges—to recover a treasure guarded by a dragon.

Uncovering the Conspiracy

To unravel the intricate conspiracy, players must collect two sets of crucial items:

  1. Crystals of Intrigue: Three distinct colors held by the Zhentarim, the Kraken, and the Hosttower. Obtaining these requires strategic melee battles and precise enemy targeting.
  2. Lucky Papers: Found in each city, these nominally lucky charms, when combined with crystals, unveil the entirety of the enemy plot.
