Lionheart Gold

Lionheart: Legacy of the Crusader Goes Gold (thanks Frans) is the press release announcing that Reflexive Entertainment's SPECIAL-system alternate-history RPG is complete, and is due in stores in August. Here's a bit:

Vivendi Universal Games and Interplay Entertainment Corp (OTC Bulletin Board :IPLY - News) announced today Lionheart: Legacy of the Crusader has gone gold. This original PC role-playing game from award-winning Black Isle Studios, and developed by Reflexive Entertainment, combines an intriguing story of alternate medieval history and fast paced real-time combat. It also features the SPECIAL system for character advancement previously found in the FalloutŪ series of PC games. Hordes of monsters, hundreds of weapons and items and over 60 spells are found in the game to challenge your combat and spell-casting abilities. Get ready to enter a hauntingly familiar yet fantastically foreign world to our own.

As much as I love NWN (particularly the work the mod community has done ... amazing stuff) I do agree that the first OC left a little to be desired.

I'm also inclined to agree that combat in the single player game does have something of a "charge-and-cross-your-fingers-hoping-for-a-critical" element.

However my pen 'n paper gaming friends and I recently played a module in multiplayer and I have to say that it was a great experience. Not the same as tabletop gaming, of course, but very good for other reasons.

And plenty of strategy ... though we did find ourselves yelling at the half-orc a lot.

Hmmm ... maybe it's not that different to tabletop gaming after all.
