    The Warlock of Firetop Mountain is currently 90% off on Switch (was thirty bucks and is now only three) and is pretty much right up the alley of everyone who plays PbP. It's essentially a single-player DnD campaign/choose your own adventure thing with grid-based combat and lots to explore. It isn't perfect, but it'll scratch the right itches and for three bucks, how can you go wrong?

    After somehow missing it for twenty years, thanks to my lovely wife's Christmas present to me I played Planescape last night for the first time in my life.

    Man...talk about an RPG that lives up to its considerable hype. What a gem

    Sir.... planescape is fantastic. How can you not have played it? Glad to hear you are finally getting to it.

    I’m playing too many things now. Got a new gaming PC for Christmas, and so I’m trying out all the things on the highest settings. Haha

    I genuinely don't know how I allowed myself to miss this game, Fox. I knew it was famous and awesome, but somehow life just slipped by and it never happened. I'm glad I've finally found it though. I've spent hours just wandering around The Hive, making allies, taking quests and killing random thugs. There's a whole multiverse out there and I'm captivated by the opening town alone!

    The ultimate geek move was selling Planescape and Icewind Dale in the same package. No doubt Planescape has the better story, but there's also something wildly enticing about venturing into the Vale of Shadows once more for some yeti-killin' good times. To be able to flip back and forth between these two games on my Switch without having to actually take a game cartridge out is a DnD fanboy's dream come true.

    I must've been nuts when I decided to play Icewind Dale through on Heart of Fury mode.

    Not to get all Danny Glover on you all, but honest-to-gods, I'm starting to think I might be getting too old for that shit. Maybe, as I approach my 40s, it might be time to knock the difficulty down to normal mode, eh?

    Getting older, I don't bother with anything higher than Normal difficulty. The coders don't code AI to be *smarter* or with better tactics as it's too difficult and time consuming. Instead, they buff and add cheats to the AI to simulate a more difficult experience which just ruins the experience for me whether I beat it or not. Unfun in an utterly biased contest where the enemy gets tons of things you don't.

    I have been buried deep in a Civilization V: Lek Mod No Quitter MP run the last couple weeks. Hosting for the guys in the NQ group has eaten my free time lately. >.< I've been Xbowed, murdered with cavalry and arties, nuked, beaten to space by 1 turn, had my people rise up in rebellion due to the tourism of a single port city on the other side of the world and more. Lots of lobby sim, lag and "Same turn!" wonder losses to be had in such an old game. About 40 new civs and multiplayer rebalance with the Lek Mod and Map we use. Anyone with the base game and all DLC can use it, as the mod pulls art from the DLC's, all except the two map packs. If anyone was interested, I can link the stuff which is updated regularly. If anyone was too much time on their hands and wants to try against the folks who grind 40+ hours a week of civ, I could link the group as well. Hit me up. Competition can be fierce and without mercy with some of the folks in the group as you'd be playing with some of the best civ players in the world hard stop.

    One of the mods is demanding I fill their lobby >.< There goes my evening.
    Hacking pathfinder on no sleep. Classed games are boring af.
