I can definitely do that.

Lucky Day - your interview with Bob McCabe was interesting, too.

FP,

what about the "Silent Era" cRPG's?

Pedit5 - considered the first cRPG

dnd - the open source game that inspired/became Akalbeth (Ultima), Rogue, and Telengard

The Intellivision AD&D games

Ubliette, which Wizardry was a clone of

there's also the Anti-Diluvian games to consider, Collosal Caverns Adventure, Zork, etc.

These games are even too old for me - I know them only from Barton's book.

I don't know if felipepepe want to include an article about them. Please ask him.

I wouldn't include Intellivision games, after all, it was a console so that would mean opening the list to console RPGs. Zork is basically an adventure game before-there-were-graphics, though I think some of the later Zork games added stats and combat so those might be eligible.

Cool, you're in.

But I have a guy from HardcoreGaming101 that already asked me about NWN1… how about doing Bard's Tale instead?

Sorry, I gave it to octavius form the Codex already… he wrote the mini-review on the Top 70 list, and I thought he did a great job.

I want to focus on commercial PC games, so it makes sense to me start at Akalabeth…

However, I want a big article on the antediluvian days, and I already got Craig Stern to write me two pages on how RPGs started as wargames, with prussian generals, HG Wells and all that… he stops at Gary Gygax releasing AD&D, and I need someone to carry on from there, talking about the silent era, PLATO, and all that… until Akalabeth.

You sure sound like a great candidate… interested?

@purpleblob maybe you contact octavius and you can ask him to do some kind of Codex - Watch collaboration on BG2 with you?

Yeah, I won't intervene, but you should ask him. He reviewed many other games, and I was the one that asked him to do the review, so maybe he doesn't care as deeply as you apparently do.

sounds good, on U3 and the so-called "Silent Era"

but I'm not your best guy for Bard's Tale - my brother would even be better.

but keep in mind how much I did with NWN- hosted server for 6 years, 15000+ unique in accounts, , 6000 member forum 75 users at once. I even wrote the fix for VFX circles that was implemented into the game. I was interviewed for two weeks for Bioware Wednesday by Jay Wamaniuk and I was asked by him to judge teh first mod contest.

Or you could PM me right here.
Anyway purplebob, if you passionately want to submit a review for BG2, go ahead.

You really should write this together - your enthusiasm and Octavius knowledge about games in general would be a great mix.
