    I've tried, and I really don't like this game. I'm going to throw it away unless someone wants me to mail it to you.

    I'll even pay the postage.

    :good:

    (all I ask is that you help the site out on Pay Pal, but I won't force that either)

    Mat, I think better option is to offer it on eBay, perhaps someone takes the bait.
    I don't think anyone from SP aready doesn't know what that game actually is...

    Hey I'll take it. If your giving it away for free and will pay postage, I'm in.
    Seriously, I live in Chicago as well, so postage couldn't be too much. Here's my email address if you are serious about giving it away, and of course if it hasn't found it's way to the trash bin yet.

    mp_bauman@yahoo.com

    Oh yeah, and I have helped out the site via paypal as well as buying games through links.

    Thats pretty weak trying to give away your crappy games that are in all reality worth nothing.

    How ungrateful. Here's a guy who paid for the game, and is willing to even pay the postage to send it to anyone who wanted it absolutely free. How can you possibly have a problem with that?

    Out of curiousity, why don't you like it? It sounds like you already have a taker for it, otherwise I'd offer to take it off your hands. I so rarely buy computer games it's not funny.

    [​IMG] Good luck, I played that game and I am still having nightmares. The scary part is that I played about 75% of the game and left it. I know that one day when desperation hits me I'll try to finish it. Its only the music, gameplay, installation and overall feel thats bad. The box doesn't look too bad.

    I feel it with all of you, really. How about the battle music that just repeats itself without variation, I felt like tearing my hair out. Battle takes forever as well

    Okay, :D now I'm curious enough to want to see what all the fuss is about. Too bad I don't like paying money for good games, never mind bad ones... :lol:

    Sorry for the long delay (Vacation :good: )

    Maybe it is weak to dump my "bad" game on someone, but the truth is, its an okay game ... good introduction to 3E rules, some good plot lines, etc.

    However, my computer ran it very, very slowly, and since it is work issue, I can't upgrade. Also, I have a very limited time to play games. This was on my "To Play" list, which now has NWN, IWD2 and a few other games on it. If that wasn't enough, my wife is gripping at me to cut back on the fantasy stuff, so ... I figured I'd give it away.

    the_eleven, I'll e-mail you to get your address. you were the first to ask for it and your the Lizard King, you can do anything!

    Yeah, I mean, Jesus... Charging someone $0.00 for a $20-40 game? What happened to morals?

    Why does eberyone hate this game so much. I bought it this weekend, but it doesn't seem that bad.
    It doesn't lag that badly, even on my laptop.
