That's your own subjective opinion about Wiz 8. You've made it obvious that you feel Wiz 8 is inferior to previous Wizardy titles, and you're certainly entitled to your opinion, but not everyone feels the same way. I'm personally glad that D.W. Bradley decided not to be a part of Wiz 8 because most of what he's done since Wiz 7 has been mediocre. I feel it was actually a better game without him, but that's just speculation of course.

I can agree with that. Not sure why you're acting like she didn't write it though.

*Edit* To clarify, I'm referring specifically to Wiz 8, not the entire Dark Savant trilogy or the lore. Yes, the overarching storyline was already in place, but she still wrote the game.
