Long ago, in the land of Flanaess, an evil demoness founded a cult dedicated to exploring evil in its most elemental forms. This cult was based in a temple just outside the village of Hommlet in a vile shire known as Nulb. Soon, this cult ruled the region with tyranny; times of chaos and violence ensued. Hard-fought battles were waged and the war was eventually won by the good armies of nearby lands. The temple was razed, the villains were imprisoned, and order was restored. The temple itself faded into distant memory...until now.

Recently, bandits have begun patrolling the roads outside Hommlet and wicked forces are rumored to be afoot, converging on the ruined temple at Nulb. Their purposes for such meetings are as yet unknown. The identity of these people are equally a mystery. Some claim they are bent on slaying monsters and maintaining order within the region, but no one can be sure.

So begins your adventure within the Realm of Greyhawk. It is an adventure that will lead to the source of a deep and abiding mystery, to the very core of evil itself.

Great game with great combat system. I want to replay it with CO8 mod.

Everyione that likes this game should REALLY check Knights of the Chalice, it has a demo, if you like turn based combat rpg it's really great!

Sort of. It's the faithful adaptation of a famous D&D module.
Its strong point is an unmatched turn based combat system, but all the "social" parts are quite boring and uninspired.

That said, the game has plenty of dialogues and options branching according to your party stats and special abilities.

It's a product tailored for true hardcore RPG fans, not casual ********.

The game had so much potential, compared to BG&IWD, yet NO MOD which is worthy the name was made world-wide???

On the disc and since Circle of eight worked on the game Temple of Elemental Evil. My question is that on the disc has a cheat that a person creating a new character can have 18 in all of the stats for the character. Since Circle of eight worked on getting the bugs out of the game. I am wondering if the stats can still have all 18s in all of the stats by dragging a stat to the right and letting it go? Then it becomes an 18 in the basic area?

So I was wondering, if anyone knows, if this games play-style is similar to Diablo II, Dungeon Siege, or pretty much similar to a 'dungeon-crawler'?

I know dumb questions do not excist... but if you look in the description you will see there is a turn based combat system. So no it's nothing like a hack 'n slash/realtime roguelike.

It's like baldurs gate, icewinddale, torment, since i anticipate you don't know those titles it's a bit like dragon age origins too.
