Hello Basilisk Games!
I imagine you must hear this a lot, but I've been dying for a good old school RPG and it looks like I've finally found some people who still make them like they used to!
I've recently been going through an old school games kick... I'm a playwright, and my last two plays were both based on classic era games. (For example, one play I wrote was in the style of an old Sierra Adventure game - the "hero" moved around onstage saying things like "Look at man" or "Pick up [object.]" All of the other characters had limited dialogue, etc.) During the run, I was shocked to discover how many people not only vaguely remembered those games, but were really into them. Heck, that play even got published - something I'd never been able to get to happen before!
At any rate, It got me to thinking about other games I used to enjoy in my youth... Ultima V, Might and Magic, Wizardry... Thinking about all of those older RPGs left me a bit nostaligic, and a little sad. I felt like I had an itch I could no longer really scratch... Until I discovered this forum, and the existence of these games!
I'm extremely excited to play Eschalon, and I basically wanted to generally thank whoever is behind the existence of this place! And to say hello.
