As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around 1amMIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I would like to play a single player game with a good crafting system. I assume most of these would be on the PC. I've got a netbook (Eee 1000) but I'm not very familiar with older PC rpgs, so I'd like some suggestions.
-I would vastly prefer something available online (steam, gog, etc). I'm unfortunately not willing to track down $50 copies of games like Arcanum and Planescape.
-I would prefer an rpg or party-based tbs/rts. I'm looking for more of a "personal" crafting system, rather than city building where you create products like anno and settlers games.
-I'd like to do something with the things I craft rather than just trading or selling them. Hitting monsters is the obvious choice here.
