Bloodstone is a 1993 high fantasy role-playing video game developed and published by Mindcraft Software. The game is a prequel to The Magic Candle series and uses the Magic Candle III engine.
The game begins with the main character's clan (default name "Danat" if male, or "Danta" if female) being attacked by the vicious Taldor. The Taldor are goblin-like creatures who seem to be cursed with violent bloodlust. The main objective of the game is to retrieve Khamalkhad and join the warring tribes of the North and South.
The game employs an interesting religion where the player can go to the resting points of certain gods and receive a permanent skill increase by uttering the word to speak with them. The game employs creatures like the Tlengle (Lizardfolk) Humans, Dwarves, Talador, Wizards, and Amazons. Magic is done in an odd way; the amount of a specific spell numbers one to ninety-nine. As the player casts a spell they use up one "use" when they run out of uses they either forget the spell or buy a totem, to learn the specific spell by assigning the character to study the magic.
