This one just popped up on my radar, and it looks this looks really damn cool.  An isometric D&D campaign + DM tools?  Yes, please.

I'd never even heard of it before this morning though...flew completely under my radar.  Was this common knowledge and I just somehow missed it?   icon_confused

It hasn't exactly been massively advertised, so it's easy to miss. I'm cautiously optimistic about this one, but I have plenty of questions that need answering. For example, can the DM actually create maps, or must he use premade ones that come with the game?

Sounds like the toolset in Nihilistic Vampire The Masquerade Redemption which had a pretty powerful storyteller mode.   Had major fun in a New Orleans by Night campaign

I rather hope it's modeled after the first Neverwinter Nights. That one hit the sweet spot between versatility and ease of use. The Vampire The Masquerade tools were incredibly complex and time-consuming. I stopped trying to make a scenario with them when I realized creating levels was equally as complex (or more) as making a level in Quake.

That looks great! 

Sadly I have to admit I haven't updated my PC in years so I will not be playing it unless it hits consoles.

Between this and Pillars of Eternity, it looks like a good year for these kind of RPGs. Just wish the old Ultima turn based combat would become popular again.

Which Ultima do you mean? Divinity: Original Sin is pretty much Ultima 7 in a new setting.

IV is the classic I enjoyed the most, but but yes: D:OS was very similar. More games like that please. I like Baldur's Gates style combat, it just gets a bit out of control for me (but that is probably the point of it).

Count me in for increased excitement for this title. It will go nicely with Divinity Original Sin and Pillars. I love these type of RPGs. Anyone hear anything about a Mac release for this one?
