|E3 Trailer||26MB||Download (Ext.)|
|A nice presentation of the game. It starts with Elminster's dramatic speech and continues with the movie showing some actual gameplay and parts of in-game movies. You will need the Bink player to view it.|
|A movie showing the awakening of the Pool of Radiance, followed by a ride through some portals. You will need the Quicktime player to view it.|
|The first part of this movie is identical to Portal, but the second part shows some character animation, a ride along the roof of Speculum and some static screenshots. This one is also in Quicktime format.|
|E3 Trailer (lower quality)||4MB||Download|
|The same E3 Trailer as above, though this one was shrunk down to a much smaller size. The movie is in ASF format, so any new version of Windows Media Player should be able to run it.|

|Two mp3 audio files with some in-game music. The first download is the opening theme and the second is generic fight music.|

|Pool of Radiance Chat Log #1||N/A||Read|
