Lords of Magic is notably different from other strategy games in that it has only one map, with each faith starting at a different location. This led to a somewhat repetitive nature, counteracted somewhat by a supplied map editor.
When beginning a battle the gameplay switches to real time. Champions and Lords can be equipped with treasures found throughout dungeons or from other factions.

There are eight different factions: life, death, order, chaos, air, earth, fire, and water.
Each faction represents their element with their own set of units, heroes and spells. The Heroes of the game consist of three different types which offer unique game play and tactics.
They are Warrior, Thief and Mage. The Warrior acts as a Tank and leads armies into battle. The Thief works best alone being able to steal money and spy. The Thief can even kidnap other heroes, ransoming them for money and artifacts.
