As a fighter in this city, the player must gradually gain experience in combat and magic. The goal is to win honor from royal families in the city by completing quests for them.
Falcon's Honor is different from other SRGames such as Solar Realms Elite and Barren Realms Elite, which were empire-building games where the player must manage the economy of an empire, build an army, and engage in trade and diplomacy.
Mehul Patel created Falcon's Honor, releasing the first public version on May 18, 1996. Patel sold FH and several other games to John Dailey in early 1998.
