"Visit wilderness, towns, caverns, and dungeons while completing quests and defeating a wide range of creatures."

Towns like Blandy Blandenville?

I don't detect even a whiff of creative inspiration coming off this one.

I'm not the news post is right calling it "isometric". It is very clearly first-person and the steam page also says that.

It is not AAA quality, but certainly looks interesting. I might give it a try. The 3D turn-based system looks novel to me.

I love first person turn-based RPG's. With some improvements and polish this could be pretty good

Combat, said to be accessible, a reason why UgoIgo is chosen, familiar, depends on how people read rules, full of choices, highly probable as this is somehow a trademark of UgoIgo RPG, myriads of redundant options, tense, that is another story, looks wet, very wet.

Seems a bit clunkier than Valkyria Chronicles, but count me interested.

Looks pretty lightweight so if this could be migrated to IOS it might be successful and help elevate mobile gaming out of stupidville.

I'm always in for party based blobbers, be it turnbased, realtime or anywhere between.

Am I the only one who at first read the title and this line ("The Fellowship Saga is a turn-based first-person RPG due to release November 2020") and briefly thought this was a LotR announcement of a tbs single player RPG?!?!

Damn… oh well, hopefully this will still be good.

Depends on the price point, but I could get this eventually. I'm not a party-based gamer, but it looks pretty good.

I think this looks pretty darn good. I'm officially excited about this game. Thanks for posting this. Plus, the character portraits look like they came from Temple of Elemental Evil. That's a big plus.

They can use the D&D ruleset, but they can't say D&D in the ad?

I'm guessing but I think with the OGL you have to avoid all association with d&d itself.

The art direction somewhat reminds me of the 3D-version of the Realms Of Arcania [TDE] series … Some areas of the video look a bit much like "Wild West" to me …

This looks like something I could really get lost in and I'd not heard of it at all, so thanks for the heads-up.

Really cool to see another game using D&D ruleset, but this first-person perspective is just not for me.

Yeah, you can use the ruleset and some of the spells and monsters, but no Forgotten Realms or other IP, or any trademarked names.
