The Legacy and Piratenleben are indeed good, I often visit the Legacy when I want to get info on really old games, and the Piratenleben seems to be (as far as I've heard) one of the better ones or even best Mods for Gothic 2.

www.the-underdogs.info is great, but hasnt been updated for a while. I think real life finally caught up with the admin, so look at it while it still is up.

Real life has caught up with her several times before now, yet she always comes back. I wouldn't worry overmuch.

www.taleworlds.com hosts Mount and Blade, an excellent "Elite with swords" game. You can play until reaching level 6 in the free version.

We have long been supporters of M&B!! There's a report on the game I wrote over a year ago floating around somewhere. Dhruin is a very keen player!!

This site is great for freeware games, the RPG archieve is not that big, but there are some gems there! They have rather good taste too, the highest rated RPG for download is BAK… Tower of the Sorcerer which is a great game gets a high rating too.

Great idea HiddenX and thanks to everyone for the links.

I have wanted to try the Prelude to Darkness, on that link the full version says link no longer good casue of some violation of Terms of Use.
There is a 75 meg version linked in their download section, maybe a demo?

In reguard to Sith Lord Restoration they are content complete and just bug catching now, yay!

Oh yeah, Underdogs is a fantastic site for abandonware. It was the best site for me years ago when i was hunting old games, too bad that there haven't been any updates

We should make this thread a sticky

Ahem…Sorry, megalomania spell has passed You know, if we are talking about mods then we have to mention http://www.tessource.net/. It's a great source for ES Mods. I guess most people know about it anyway. The sad thing is that i've never completed an ES game before…

How do I contribute a game to the Underdogs page ?

Background : Larian had once made a tiny game called "Imprunner". I thought it would be a good idea to place it there to keep it from being forgotten.

And I've even got an official "okay". Literally.

Hm, the idea isn't bad either.
It's just the point whether it is "good enough" for hosting … Anyway, I'll PM him.
