Welcome Thread

Welcome to the Solasta Forums! Hope the trip wasn't too rough, roads do tend to get a bit bumpy around here ever since the new governor got into office. But please, do drop a note a note to introduce yourself, or ask any initial questions you may have. It's a great way to break the ice and get started.

I'm Myzzrym, the Community Lead of Tactical Adventure. Some of you probably recognize the name (bonus points if you can name the novel), which wouldn't be surprising since we're mostly D&D fans among here. I've been DM'ing D&D for... a little more than 15 years now? I started in the 3.5 era and stayed faithful to it until very recently - I only switched to 5e around a year ago, maybe even less (you already guessed it, 4e wasn't really my thing). I've also been DM'ing World of Darkness for some time, and I have recently joined a Call of Cthulhu table as a player. 

But since we're not necessarily all Tabletop enthusiasts here, I guess I should also talk a bit about Video Games! I was actually a huge MOBA buff back in the days, I've spent thousands and thousands of hours playing, watching and casting DotA, DOTA 2, HoN, LoL, HotS, even a bit of Smite... Nowadays I'm back to playing a lot of Tactical RPGs (Final Fantasy Tactics saved me quite a few times back in the days whenever Internet was not available), such as X-COM 2, Battle Brothers, Fell Seal...

But enough about me. Let's hear about you!

Hello! My gamer name is Plastik I am from Canada. 

I found out about your game on google news today and immediately fell in love. This game could have so much potential! 

Ever since the 80's I loved cartoons, RPG games, NES, SEGA fantasy movies, and comics. Until one day I found a 2nd Edition D&D Players Handbook. I went on to buy the whole set except the DM manual. I remember in high school wishing to bump into someone with the same passion for D&D but to no avail. Growing up I got my fix from books and video games and creating these D&D characters I would never use.

Till this day there has never been 1 game that I could still play my D&D Character.  

I probably have thousands of hours of RPG / strategy gameplay, mixing the NES, SNES, N64, CUBE, Gameboys, SEGA, PS, PS2, PS3, PS4, & PC. (Still, have to buy a switch!) 

I would love to give my input on some great ideas for this game! 

There is no light without shadow...

Greetings and salutations one and all!

I'm Xan'thais (Xan for short). 46 from Southern California. I heard about this game last week via an IGN article.

Been playing D&D for over 20 years, most of that as a DM. Was super into the old 'Pool of Radiance' game back in the day, so when I read this was turn-based, my curiosity was immediately piqued!  Games like Diablo-3 and stuff are fun, but sooooooooo chaotic with everything happening at the same time. Since this is turn-based, it really gives it that D&D feel.

Downloaded the Alpha demo this morning and gotta say, it plays great! Camera rotation is a bit wonky, but that might be my settings. Still can't find Hector though, and those huge double doors on the floor that the game says to inspect, don't do anything. Goes to a cut-scene that just does a camera pull-back, but nothing happens.

Anyways, looking forward to this in full release!

Agree that the camera needs some work, and the cut scene animations are pretty...well, janky. Combat and exploring that dungeon is really fun though.

Hi I'm Faun, been gaming since I started in 78 with AD&D, many other games and many adventures later I'm always interested in the next "best game" that gets closer the Table Top RPG. I'm hoping that Solasta keeps going and reaches the light of day and is produced and available for all of us to play.
