Battle for Wesnoth (and the upcoming Dungeons of Dredmor) was mentioned in Wired’s recent article, 7 Fantastical Indie RPGs Worth Playing:

Take one part Heroes of Might and Magic and another part Warsong, then add a dash of standard fantasy fare like orcs, elves and wizards. Now you’ve got Battle for Wesnoth, an immense, free turn-based strategy game and mathematician’s wet dream.

You maneuver heroes and armies around a variety of vast maps, moving and attacking in order to take out monsters and complete the game’s 15+ campaigns. Wesnoth can sometimes feel a little slow, but strategy RPG buffs will dig the 100+ hours of content and accompanying map editor, which allows you to develop your own campaigns and scenarios.
