    Ah, looks like it's going to take up many of my free hours as well. [​IMG]
    Here's a question: As far as the 'modern' games based around D&D, what's the timeline? I suppose what I'm asking is are there any out that I missed?
    Baldur's Gate 1
    *Tales of the Sword Coast [expansion]
    Planescape: Torment
    Icewind Dale
    *Heart of Winter [expansion]
    Baldur's Gate 2
    *Throne of Bhaal [expansion]
    Then future installments:
    Pools of Radiance
    Neverwinter Nights
    Anything I'm forgetting?

    That's all the modern D&D titles I am familiar with. The older SSI gold box series are floating around in several anthology sets where they put all the titles on a few CDROM's. They are supposed to be good (if not up to Bioware's modern technical marvels).
    In non-D&D the next Bioware fantasy title (Torn) sounds promising. Also, Morrowind (Elder Scrolls III) should be good (but it isn't due 'til next year). If Wizardry 8 ever gets published it could be intriguing. Also, I thought that there might be another coming in the Might and Magic series.
    If you get really adventurous there is always the PS2 Baldur's Gate game [​IMG] They might ban me from the PC gaming society if I partake [​IMG]
    I will beg for forgiveness in advance of going out to buy the Diablo II expansion tomorrow [​IMG] Otherwise, I will just have to hang tight until the Fall and PoR comes out. At the rate I am going I should finish the BG2 expansion next week. I am starting the third level of the Tower Keep and then after I finish this I have to do the Southern part of the main arc. I feel guilty though every time I warp back to the pocket plane and see poor Minsc standing alone in the corner.
