August update

I am going to Ukraine for a couple of weeks on vacation so I will not be able to do any updates until the end of August. However, I will bring a netbook with me and my intention is to make a revisit to the Amiga game Legend of Faerghail. Another game I will bring with me is Ishar 3 and I might be giving it a short revisit without intention of completing it just to compare it with Ishar 2. If for nothing else, I want to transfer my party to Ishar 3.

As a last stand, I bought Avadon - The black fortress half a year ago and haven´t had time to start on it yet. I think we should support new efforts of bringing classical RPGs back to life. I´ll return with a comment if I find this game good. My recommendation is otherwise to try out Legend of Grimrock, a new dungeon master clone released earlier this year that got very good reviews.

  1. Legend of Faerghail is one of my old favorites... can't wait to see your posts about playing it.

    Avadon is a good game, but if you haven't played Vogel's earlier games (all the Avernum and Geneforge games) I recommend them first. For me Avadon was the weakest that he's created. I'm playing his remake of the first Avernum (which was a remake of his first Exile game) and it's great... much better than Avadon. Worth a thought.

    Safe traveling...
