    Original Neverwinter Nights
    « on: May 14, 2006, 07:23:59 am »
    Thought you folks might get a kick out of this... the original Neverwinter Nights game by AOL and SSI back in the golden (box) age of AD&D gaming :)

    Awwwww...I remember this, saw it in PC Gamer, or maybe it was Computer Gaming Monthly.  It blew my mind and I rushed out to grab as many gold box games as I could (actually more like begging Mom to have 20 dollars for a beat up box with 3 low density floppys, a half torn decoder wheel, and one missing manual).  I recall not understanding what this whole "internet" thing was, as I was still surfing all the BBS's in the city playing Legend of the Red Dragon, on an ancient (but reliable) Hayes 2400 baud modem.

    I've actually got the gold box collection of the SSI games.  I played them back in the day and occasionally now as well.  They were very good for that time!

    i loved the 3 Dragonlance games, well at least the first 2, the Third one Dark Queen of Krynn was released with a bug which made a mandatory section of the game unbeatable (IE something akin to a person you needed to talk to not being in the game) and so i put them down and am still to this day upset that i could not beat Dark Queen of Krynn

      Awesome! I too remember the Trilogy of Dragonlance. Champions of Krynn´s the game that got me started, after Pn´P ofcourse. Those were the days... Fighting Lord Soth, the Dark Queen, the Kua-Toas and dragons in the mystic lands of Krynn. My paladin, Sir Lancelot who later became a fallen paladin thou, really gave me lots and lots of hours of fun and adventure *lol*. One had to roll ones character. Thoose were the days indeed! I remember playin it on my great Amiga 2000. That my friends, was a powerfull tool of enjoyment.

      Aaah memories, sweet memories...

      @Belecthor... Sir Lancelot? No way. :) I think we played together a few times, at least I played a few times with a character that had that name. heh.  Did you ever play Yserbius on the Imagination Network?

        Hehe... That would´ve been something mate. But nei, I didn´t play any online gaming at that time. Only me and my Amiga *lol* in the solitary of my own quarters... Unfortunatly, I see now that I missed out. Big time!
