Only negatives to this game are the battles are quite large and do take quite a bit of time. However, I do find the turn based battles quite fun....

Yea I bought the Gamefest Forgotten Realms classic set that included all of the forgotten realms gold box games for the PC. However, only drawback is I couldnt get the sound to work at all with those installs. I found a version on a freeware site that the music did work, so I am playing that current...

Pool of Radiance

I am so bored with the lack of true RPG out there that I went back and started playing the original Pool or Radiance by SSI. I havent played it since It came out, I think I was 14.

I played through the first one, and it was an enjoyable game, yes it was a little too hack and slash heavy.

Will the character progress levels rather quickly or will it take a while? I think todays games have to many levels and level up too quickly. The old style games were more challenging to level up and I found this much more rewarding when you finally do. Ok; 2 questions here. Will got be plentiful or...

Dungeons?

Hello,
