Playing as Jack Mower (with an option to personalize the name), you take control of the adventure as a very unlikely hero. As Nox unfolds around you through exploration and legendary history, you discover a world in desperate need of a savior -- a champion to lead the resistance against the return of the Necromancers of the North. A race of vile and evil opponents with the ability to suck the very dead straight from the ground with the sole purpose of delivering disease, death and destruction to all living beings.
In Nox, a fantasy role-playing adventure played from third-person perspective, you can choose one of three hero classes: warrior, wizard and conjurer. As a warrior, strength is the dominant attribute, as physical ability to wield weapons and wear armor is tantamount to success. Choose the wizard to explore the art of spell casting as you make your way through the varied environments and locations of Nox, learn to set deadly magical traps and create disconcerting illusions. Or, you can become a conjurer, endowed with the ability to summon and control creatures to do your bidding -- a hero with a mix of both warrior- and wizard-like attributes.
