Dragon is revamping entirely with the release of 3e. Pick up a copy on the
10th if you value your self-respect. If you aren't jumping for joy, go find
someone who will; this is big stuff.
Nights, an amazing and open-ended game based on D&D 3e has been announced.
Check out the NWN homepage
and participate. This game looks unbelievably cool; if you like AD&D
you owe it yourself to check it out.
has officially been announced. Check it out at http://www.wizards.com/3e;
join the mailing list and scan the boards on the main D&D page if you
know you want to want to add something. The WotC crew do post messages occasionally, so you will be heard.
As you might have noticed,
I updated the site design. the old one was too clunky and didn't work
with all computers. This design is as basic as it gets and should be no
trouble to operate. Three days left. Content on the way. I will be
spending much of tomorrow applying the new design to the rest of the
site. Yay. Patience.
Well, AD&D 3e comes out in four days.
I am done with work. I ship for boot camp in three months. What the Hell.
Why not update the page? I have some last ideas I want to put on the page
for 2e before we all take the plunge. Nothing special has happened in the
world of computer gaming as far as role-playing in concerned besides Icewind
Dale being released.
Get this game. My Gamespy Arcade name is
Nealok. Look out for me. More stuff later. By the way, pay attention to
the banner at the top of my page. Do not kill your teammates, you asses.
Still playing Torment after all this time. Still the
best game ever. Buy it, England!
Updated with a new class. I have another one in the works, and I am almost
through with another rant and a review for Torment and Nox. (Like you need another
review for Torment. Just by the game, already!)
IGN has posted an interview
regarding Pool of Radiance II.
You remember Pool of Radiance II, right? The game that is not
going to be half as interesting as either the game from which it
took its name or Neverwinter Nights. Yeah, that's the one.
IGN has also posted an article
talking about the voice acting in Baldur's
Gate II. An interesting read that has little to do with
Pool of Radiance II, which already gives it points in my book.
- I was scanning around, and I noticed some words
on Heuristic Park's new game, Wizards
and Warriors. The people in the press seem to have nice
things to say about it, but the more I play Might and Magic VII,
the more I am wary of first person party-based RPGs. (which are
super different from the solo RPG joy that can come from a game
like System Shock or Daggerfall) I am going to
call it a dud right now, and you can send me harsh e-mail about
it later. That goes for PoR2, as well, which I am sure is going
to kick ass just so God can laugh at me.
A while ago, TSR posted the
module that it had banned so long ago, Palace
of the Silver Princess, which seems silly to me. Oh,
well, I have linked to it here,
and I will include it in the trinkets section. (You'll need
Adobe Acrobat to read it.)
Okay, kids. Don't play with balls
because they will take out your eye. Although that builds character.
Maybe I didn't update the page last time.
Well, no one e-mailed me to tell me I goofed, so I will assume no one
I have now officially updated with a new items page, and woo boy is it
long! I also added a little Diablo rant, to celebrate not getting the
beta. And here is the world as it matters to me:
I finally beat Torment
after a long hiatus of playing. You have read the reviews, so
you don't need me to tell you it is a great game. But I will go
the extra mile. It is the best game I have ever played. Period. Buy
Torment. Buy a new computer if you don't have enough machine
to run it. I will be posting a review soon. (That's what he said
II betas have been sent out, as have the Vampire:
Redemption betas. Guess who didn't make the list for
either? Guess who's bitter? Bah. I will still buy both and love
both. Look for Nealok in the retail versions.
Gamespot has a preview
of Neverwinter Nights up. Very
nice. They also have a preview
of Icewind Dale up, but I have a
feeling that it is going to be a bit more Diablo than I a
prepared to spread open with my love. Go read the rant to see
what I am saying. Still... after the final battle in Baldur's
Gate and the Curst scene in Torment, I am very confident
in the epic dungeon crawl capabilities of Bioware's Infinity
Engine, so all is not lost. But Icewind Dale is a spitball in
the lake compared to the Biblical Flood that Neverwinter Nights
Gamespot also has a BG
I am about to die of the shakes because of all this AD&D
CRPG goodness. Go forth. Read. And be happy. Tomorrow (later
today) is Pool of Radiance II (ha
ha ha), and the next day they are posting an addendum to their
history of AD&D. Be happy.
Okay, kids. Keep your eye on the ball
and stay in character. Later.
[This is the update from this date. It is a
lie because I didn't actually update the right sections. My bad.]
After I left, I was horrified to check the
site and see that I had done something weird to the background (It had to
do with a stupid FrontPage theme on a non NRPGR section of my webspace, if
you must know.), and I had NOT updated the page as I had previously
thought. I am so sorry. I have remedied the situation now, so browse the
new stuff as is your wont.
I am particularly proud of the Pale
Hopefully I will be able to update with some
more content within the next day or so, so keep coming back.
Updates in the world of gaming:
Bethesda has announced an
extension to the wonderful, amazing, deep, infinitely replayable Elder
Scrolls series: Morrowmind. It's about freaking time!
The most recent installment (not counting Redguard and Battlespire,
the former of which was cool, but the latter of which was beyond
reproach... although it had funny dialogue) was released in mid-1996,
for criminy! Morrowmind is
slated for a late 2001 release. I will be waiting with bated breath.
Check out the newest installment of CGW for more info.
Holy shi'taka! Arcanum
looks beyond awesome! Check out the Gamespot
Don't go to college.
It's not worth it. Just stay home and read, read, read. It's just a
sheet of paper, people.
I hate not having any more news than
Oh, and if someone could let me know
whether the page looks all weird because of the Amazon search thingy in
the left column, please let me know. Can have the page lookin' weird.
Thanks for coming by.
Well, I am leaving for spring break on Wednesday, which is the exact day
that my God forsaken Psychology lab is due! Yay! Anyway, I will be
updating some in the next few days, so be excited. Head over to the rants
and items section so your joy can be complete.
To the News
I am a student at Sewanee, where
I take full advantage of the school's lush 10,000 acres of mountain beauty
by playing too much of The Sims
and System Shock II. I
am 19, and I want to be an actor. I would say more, but if I put anything else here, it
would mean I was lazily neglecting the rest of the page or, Heaven forbid,
my homework. Later.

This is close to the funniest stuff I
have ever read. Really.
Try to read all the comics without laughing out loud. Some of the humor
requires a working knowledge of the gaming universe, but a lot of it is
just damned funny. Tycho and Gabe update every other day, so you will
never be out of gags.
By the way, if you order anything from
Amazon related to Fantasy RPGs (video game or PnP or otherwise) I may have a
link to it in the reviews section. If you're gonna click to Amazon from here, do
with style, and go directly to the product you want from my page, if you
would. Man's gotta eat, after all.
