|A demo has been released for 'The Glory of Istar', which is a BG2: Throne of Bhaal total conversion to Dragonlance. It's an ambitious project so here's a snip from the website:|
This demo brings you the opening chapter of a whole new Infinity Engine game set in the lavish world of Krynn! Baldur's Gate 2 and the Throne of Bhaal expansion (with the latest patch) are required to play Glory of Istar, but the storyline is unaffiliated with either.
Head here for more information or to download the 83Mb demo.
The final game is intended to be around the size of BG2: Shadows of Amn. The demo release includes the opening chapter of the main storyline, offering several hours of playing time. In addition to large quests and intrigue, many of the traditional rules and systems used in the game have been changed to provide a fresher roleplaying experience. You will encounter brand-new NPCs as you navigate tense local politics, and explore a world dominated by extremes of good and evil... or so it would seem. The Infinity Engine rules have been streamlined to better suit the Krynn universe, with exciting enhancements to gameplay that will appeal to any experienced D&D player.
