Hi everyone. My first experience with RPGs was playing Advanced Dungeons and Dragons, 1st edition in 1979.  Wow, that was a long time ago!

Hi Amanda! If it's not a problem for you could you say something about the 1st edition? By that I mean did you like that, how would you describe it as opposed to the later editions? I was always interested in the 1st one. Liked the old school basement feeling of the handbooks and art. Never managed to get them though. Wizards of the Coast re-released them on 2012 IIRC(afwuly expensive nowadays)

Hi there!

Like many here I'm a huge fan of turn-based tactical games in all shapes and forms: video games, tabletop miniature games, pen and paper role-playing games. I've spent a good chunk of my teen and student years (mid-90s - mid-00s) playing HoMM 2 and 3, the first two Fallout games and their Tactics spin-off for instance, as well as Warhammer Quest, Blood Bowl and Warhammer Fantasy (Skaven player here!) and a bunch of RPGs: Call of Cthulhu / Delta Green, Warhammer 1st edition, DND 3.5, Shadowrun... And well, I still do!

A couple of years ago my friends and I have founded a Steam group dedicated to PC turn-based games: https://steamcommunity.com/groups/tbtactics. If you like the genre, feel free to visit us.

Hi all. I first played D&D in1978. I was introduced to it by a musician friend of mine and loved it instantly. I never lost the thrill of playing those games. I haven't gotten to play a real table top "campaign" in many years but I do play video games. I had friends that moved on and apparently don't play games anymore. In fact one asked me " You still play those games?" I guess they have lost that "fun part" of their lives but I certainly haven't!

Hello, Amanda. Hello everyone.

I grew up playing AD&D since early '90s. So I have a passion for 2nd edition AD&D and developed a passion for the earlier editions. Hence why I am so eager to have Mystara back in 5th edition. There is a large active community of Mystara fans working for that to happen.

I played some of the 3rd edition, skipped the 4th edition and am back for the 5th edition.

Hello all,

I just purchased the game and am excited where it will go.  I'm pretty old school, going back to Basic D&D and 1st Ed AD&D.  I didn't get into computer game RPGs until the Baldur's Gate series and then NWN1&2.  Although I haven't played TT for decades, I've purchased all the D&D editions just to see how systems have evolved.  Of course, I played other systems as well but D&D always had a special place in my heart.

I'm hoping Solasta will bring back some of the old BG1&2 and NWN 1&2 vibes.  Those were great games with lots of replay value.
