Falling on Floor Laughing Re: Wow its still here :D

There is no quick way to answer your many questions. If you have spare time go here ...
http://forum.candlekeep.com/ .

Concentrate on these areas;
1. Under the "FR Journals" section: the forum "General FR Chat".

2. Under the "Realmslore" section: the forum "Sages of Realmslore". You may also find the forum "Chamber of Sages" worthwhile, since it is the area where FR authors and game designers respond to member questions.

3. Under the "Tomes of Lore" section: You may wish to DL the Candlekeep Compendiums to read at your leisure.

This should get you started. AAMOF, it's a bit overwhelming at first ... but you'll find your answers.

Supposedly they are going to make a feature Movie based in the Forgotten Realms..(HAHAHAHAH um, sorry. but remember the DnD movies?) but, uh.. then why stop making novels? Do they plan re-releasing all old ones and restart FR?

I mean, the last 6 years FR novels have been slim.. usually an Elminster and Drizzt novel, and 2-3 paperbacks. really sad. in the 90's, we'd have 12-15 novels a year!

Anyway, I've been playing a NEW Retro game called Flinthook--go look it up on YouTube! Its a retro 'kinda looking' platformer that reminds me of c64 bruce lee with bionic commando and mario all thrown together, but without looking like a ripoff. VERY cool looking, and challenging. Its and indie game, and cost only $15.. on PC and PS4. I got it on PS4 (seems better with a controller, and sitting in the living room to play)

I'd also LOVE to see a remake of that game! (And tons more-- like X-wing vs Tie fighter) I loved that game. but not really a RPG.

I remember a thread on IW about this when it began happening. I remember I was just about to get into buying the books again...I have all of them from the old days...and then this happened just when I was getting ready to start investing again...and we cried long and hard over this.

Now, you're telling me they're straight up quitting.

Well...if I ever choose to forgive them for what they did to my world and start buying again...at least I know I can eventually catch up now.

Hey Memsie! Glad to see IW in your globetrotting itinerary! LOL *hugs*

So good to see so many familiar names! And just as happy to meet new folks!

I've played the EE versions of BG and BG2, started IWD and really enjoyed playing the classics again. Got hooked on Dragon Age franchise and am waiting for the next installment while replaying DAI and Skyrim. Skyrim has been lots of fun although not as immersive for my tastes and just as much fetching/carrying type missions. But still enough fun/interest to want to see it through, so worth the time!

Yeah, playing the EE versions as well. I just heard that there will be NO Icewind Dale 2 EE due to they LOST the source code for the game.... lost it??? UGH....

IWD 1 was awesome though.. I bought a load of games during the Steam sale too.

I used to come here as a tiny little pre-teen! I lived on this site for years! Still people here, interesting. I just reinstalled tob today for old times sake and thought about this place. I remember making some incredibly cringe worthy posts that embarrass me to think about. I hope all you other old timers are doing great!
