Dominions 3: The Awakening is a fantasy turn-based strategy game released in 2006 developed by Illwinter and published by Shrapnel Games.


After the wars of the Pretenders, men who sought to be gods, the Pantokrator ascended to true godhood and hunted down the Pretenders, imprisoning them forever. Those that escaped his judgement hid away to bide their time. Now a new age has dawned. The Pantokrator is gone, and the surviving Pretenders have retuned to once more battle for ascension. However, they are not alone. Once banished and trapped in a deep slumber, the ancient ones put away by the Pantokrator have awoken from their long sleep.


Dominions 3 has a strategic planning phase and automated tactical combat. It is designed for multiplayer through PBEM, hotseat, or TCP/IP but also provides AI opponents for solo or cooperative play. The game provides both scenarios and randomized maps, though it does not include a campaign.
