I haven't heard of a good new TBS game along the lines og Might and Magic for example in forever. Is there any turn based strategy games left other than the Might and Magic series? Don't they know that some people actually likes playing TBS games?? :(

Well, most of the new games are RTS... makes for better MP. Right now, it's a clone AoK market.

The last two TBS games I can remember seeing was Disciplines 2 and Homm 4.

Age of Wonders 2 will be TBS, of course.

I meant along the lines of Dungeons and Dragons. That type. There are a few games like Ages of Wonders out there being made.

Now you are just being unclear.

Do you mean, as in the table top game? How is HoMM/Age of Wonders not like D&D?

I'm looking forward to Warlords4. :)

Age of Wonders is is where you build cities and summon creature and stuff like that. I'm looking into it though. I meant Dungeons and Dragons as in where you start off the game with a character or a handfull of chatacters and you go on quests and fight monsters and equip yourselves with progressively better weapons and armors and gain experiance and build up skills and HPs and etc. :)

That's not TBS. That's *adventure* or *role playing*.

Are you stoned? You are getting into Ajliness...

So you are stoned then?

Most RPGs have gone to RT. Makes for more interesting MP. But in SP, you just pause and unpause as you choose.

When are you goint to share all that weed you are smoking with the rest of us?

Sucks to be you then. Get used to RT in RPGs. It's not like it's a big deal.

I don't know if any new TBRPGs are coming out -- but Zangband is pretty cool.

Might and Magic (I played I & II), Ultima (played IV & V), the Dragonlance series, they were all TBRPGs.

Hijacking this thread to talk about actual Turn Based Strategy games, anyone else tried DisciplesII at all?

I love it:).

Wizardry 8 is out and I've heard good things about Morrowind that just came out, if you have the system to handle it.

Baulder's Gate, Planetscape, and Icewind Dale could all be considered turn based RPGs as the follow the DnD rules for turns, ie how many turns/rounds it takes a spell to be cast.

I think NWN is following the same principle, but I really don't know the DnD side of it other than the basics on their website.

Is that what you're looking for?
