Quest for Glory III: Wages of War is a hybrid adventure/role-playing video game released in 1992 for MS-DOS and Apple Macintosh. It is the sequel to Quest for Glory II: Trial by Fire.
Quest for Glory II hinted that Ad Avis would return in this installment which was originally titled Quest for Glory III: Shadows of Darkness. However they didn't think they could reach a new audience with a game that was significantly darker in tone then previous games in the Quest for Glory series. Therefore Quest for Glory III: Wages of War was created instead with the game just hinting at the whereabouts of Ad Avis and saving that particular plotline for Shadows of Darkness, which was changed to the fourth in the series.
Famous quotes containing the words glory and/or wages:
“Oh! joyous hearts! enfired with holy flame!
Is speech thus tasseled with praise?
Will not your inward fire of joy contain:
That it in open flames doth blaze?
For in Christs coach saints sweetly sing,
As they to glory ride therein.”
—Edward Taylor (16451729)
“These, in the day when heaven was falling,
The hour when earths foundations fled,
Followed their mercenary calling
And took their wages and are dead.”
—A.E. (Alfred Edward)
