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!

you folks like videogames that feature both DUNGEONS and DRAGONS?

Well, if you don't you're a goddamn sissy, pinko, faggot, commie that hates freedom.

Well what's all this about then?

Why Dungeons and Dragons Online of course! (DDO for short)

dungeons_and_dragons_online_stormreach_logo_qjpreviewth.jpg

As you can see by this handy dandy awful image I posted, this here vidyagame takes place in Stormreach, which is the major city on the continent of Xen'drik. this all takes place in Eberron, which is the best goddamn D&D setting. Also, it's 3.5 edition.

for more info on all of this setting see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_of_Eberron

Well what is this game all about? You might ask, you presumptuous piece of shit
It's about killing nerds! also, dragons and shit I guess

Also kobolds, you are literally Hitler to kobolds in this game btw

Also, many of your favorite classic D&D monsters make appearances in this including: beholders, mindflayers, dragons, and the much maligned mexican jew lizards.

Ok then, what classes we got going on in hizzle?

Fuck you and your questions, I'm getting to it.

AND THE RACES

I MUST KNOW IF I CAN BE A GNOME!

you can't, and shut up I was gonna tell you what you can be
Spoiler:

So how much does this cost you might ask?

Well, get ready for this Delilah, cause it's goddamn free, kinda.
You could theoretically download and play this game indefinitely, without ever actually having to pay anything. You will probably not hit 20(which is the level cap), but who fucking cares it's free.

Here's a list of free quests: http://ddowiki.com/page/Free_to_Play_quests

And here's a list of stuff you gotta pay for or maybe earn via favor: http://ddowiki.com/page/DDO_Store

So how do you download this game?

Why just click this here link and follow the steps!

    I thought this was a game of the imagination?

    In many media it is.

    In this case, it is an MMO which I feel is an incredibly refreshing change of pace from, for lack of a better term (cause I haven't exercised my imagination loool), the WoW standard.

    Instead of the ol' farm and grind, it's more do this dungeon and then this dungeon and oh here is another dungeon you should do!

    The tutorial island is a great experience. After that it is koboldfest for a while, which may be hard to get through if you're not already enjoying the game. And then it gets fun again with lots of unique adventures!

    Help pirates.
    Kill pirates.
    Kill ghost pirates!
    Loot loot loot.
    Kill trolls.
    Defend the city of Stormreach from an invasion of a demon leading beholders leading lesser demons!
    Kill all sortsa giants.
    Kill the dragons that those giants hatched from stolen eggs and raised to become magnificent tools of destruction!
    Loot loot loot loot loot loot loot loot.
    Be a walking death robot.

    OK, every solution to every problem is predictably violent, but at least it's not that same scenario with song & dance replacing violence.

    Anywho, if you're looking for a good waste of time, this has my hearty approval. Me! This cool cat!

    also, not everything has to be violent

    sometimes diplomacy/bluff/intimidate actually get you out of fights!


    making things explode is way cooler though

    also t dan: you know, this game is actually really hard to solo in barring certain builds, so, you realistically can level completely to 20 with a group

    mmhm me and pip and mr. defecation and a couple other dudes leveled to 20 together. Basically from level 5 onward. another set of like 5 dudes have leveled to around 15 together so far.

    And pip needs an excuse to make an alt so he can stop being a rogue and consequently stop being so wrong all the time about everything forever.

    Pip has an alt now! I think we're on level 7 ish characters.

    I love alts, so if you want to play don't be shy and tell us you want some company. I know there have been many a time before Pip had an alt when he would want people to group with his 20 and we'd be all, 'nope leveling up our alts with this lower level guy.'

    Some people say he cries himself to sleep on those nights.
