A Party is a representation of the player's characters. In the Might and Magic series, as with most role-playing games, each character in the party has their own unique statistics (might, intelligence, etc), inventory, skills, and other features. The series also includes character portraits, from the third game onward, to better visualize each party member. Some games also allow non-player characters and/or playable hirelings (pay-to-use characters) to join the party, albeit temporarily.

Every game in the series allows the player to create their own party. However, the player can also choose to use the default party. This has little affect on the story, but may make the game somewhat easier, as default party members are usually much better equipped than those the player can create.

TriviaEdit

  • The World of Xeen games contain some semi-functional code from Isles of Terra which hints that the Hireling system may have been slated for a return, in those games. The auto-play demo for Clouds of Xeen also shows the party firing eight arrows, despite only six part members being on-screen. However, since the World of Xeen game use a slightly-modified version of the Isles of Terra game engine, it could just be something that New World Computing forgot to clean up or disable.
