Glorytoneda Pong Machine (1984 - nice to read stories about these!)

Yes, indeed it did. The strongest influence for me is probably Dark Sun. Brilliant game and a must play really for turn based AD&D fans. The graphics are no problem for me at all since the gameplay…

You're testing my memory there JDR (this was probably 2005-6 or so!) but I suspect that I used the BG1tutu mod to get access to the BG2 class kits.

If you're playing an evil party, obviously you're going to tend to leave Minsc behind. (Kagain, Shar-Teel, Viconia, Edwin, Safana and PC Assassin is one of my all time fave parties…)
