That's a fantastic little interview which answers some of my questions, thanks for posting Couch.

It would have been both nostalgic and extra-uber-cool however if Matt had have dropped a question…

Thanks for the heads-up, I vividly recall the lively discussions here when it came out and missed it when it was on sale last time, so it's nice to finally pick it up.

I have to vehemently disagree with this; the Krynn trilogy can stand proudly next to the Pool series as far as I'm concerned. The Krynn games also featured journal entries for the player to read…

A fun thread, some interesting reading.

Just the mentioning of Ruins of Myth Drannor got me nostalgic enough to track down my old thread when I finally completed the game on the 'Watch.

Sadly, that's a very uninspiring and insipid video of game-play. It certainly looks and feels more like Dragon Age 2 than Origins to me as well at this point, albeit just in a bigger world space. Too…

No. It's party based top-down isometric at all times. Very tactical turn based combat. Also, for a much more obvious influence on Knights of the Chalice, I'd much recommend playing Dark Sun:…
