Kohan: Immortal Sovereigns is a real-time strategy game set in a fantasy world where you take on the role of an immortal known as the Kohan.  Your race once ruled the world, but was devastated in a series of massive cataclysms.  As an immortal, you have reawakened to a new world, unlike the one you once knew.  Now you must come to grips with your past glory, your present hardship, and your future destiny.  If you are to return your race to their rightful glory, you most solve the mystery of their destruction.  (reprinted from game box)

Kohan Features

Company Based Combat System

  • No more unorganized masses of units. Kohan players create custom groupings of units that we call companies.
  • Up to 40 different units can be combined to create thousands of possible unique companies that will most importantly function distinctly.
  • Different formations alter the company’s Attack Value, Visual Range, Zone of Control, Movement Rate, and can even affect Morale
  • Companies are commanded like single units are in other games reducing the click-factor inherent in many RTS titles.
  • The units within each company manage themselves, positioning and attacking by following their own internal AI.

Classic Military Concepts

  • Morale - may drop during combat and when members are lost. This can cause rout in battle and refusals to accept commands for a short time.
  • Supply - if a player dares to venture too far from the supply range of their buildings, they may lose the ability to heal and regain lost units
  • Terrain - may slow the movement of a company, provide defensive bonuses, and be used to one’s advantage or create disadvantages
  • Other concepts such as fatigue, zones of control, visual range, formation and company efficiency

Distinctive Economic Model

  • All units and buildings have per minute upkeep costs rather than lump sums to be paid upon creation.
  • Kingdom’s building components and mines produce resources on a per minute basis
  • A simple balancing of pluses and minuses will provide a more involved player with a successful economy

Depth of Play

  • The Kohan player will have many options and paths to success.
  • Scenarios were created with complex goals in mind.
  • A successful Kohan player will need the ability to plan ahead, generate strategy, and be involved in several aspects of the game at once.


  • Kohan is for up to 8 players, human or AI
  • Variety of settings to create your own customized multiplayer games
  • Random map generator for multiplayer games
  • In-game server browser as well as GameSpy Arcade support


Hi-res (1024x768), 16-bit color
  • Anti-aliasing of units, buildings, and spell effects
  • Lush and lively terrain that will continually engage the player


  • Each unit has over 400 frames of animation creating smooth and natural movements
  • Several units have more than one type of attack or ability with animation to match
