    I don't think that would be appropriate for this forum.

    Bumping this one back up to the top of the list. Post-import we've discovered that XF doesn't support guests voting in polls, so the older polls in this forum are only displaying registered members' votes. BTA's added the complete results to each poll thread manually.

    Can't wait to play some more IE engine. Back in the day Part of a FR campaign I ran visited DragonSpear Castle basing from Daggerford. It didn't end well for the party.

    I'm pretty excited even if I won't play it right away. I was lucky enough to experience the BG games for the first time in the past few years and they have always been in the ''masterpiece'' category since. For those who played them closer to their release dates, it must be like a gift from heaven to see them revived and expanded upon. I know that's how I would feel.

    Would you see it as a gift if some second-rate writer acquired the rights to the Lord of the Rings and decided to write another story under the same name? I imagine most people wouldn't.

    I didn't want BG3 when it was gonna be developed by BIS and I certainly don't have any confidence in OHG. I'm just hoping it doesn't end up being a stain on an otherwise very good game series.

    I long to play more IE games. But most of all I long to play D&D in a setting (time frame) before the FR became too alien for me.
    Hence me looking forward to Dragonspear.

    Would have voted 3.5 if that were possible, since I think I'm a tad more than a 3 based on what I've read. But not quite confident enough to go to the 4. I think I have a bad taste in my mouth from some of BeamDog's previous release experiences. And well, other than some of the limited content added to the EE's, I really don't know yet what they are capable of coming up with on their own.

    I hope it's great, and my enthusiasm level will increase accordingly. But, I'm getting skeptical in my old age.
