Since everyone here(or at least the great majority) likes Baldur's Gate, Icewind dale and NWN and M&M games, i found this game when i was looking for M&M like games and according to the reviwer the game can be defined as "what if BG and M&M has an son", there are an topic about the game, but is 2 years old ( https://forums.beamdog.com/discussion/64366/grimoire-greenlit-on-steam-hell-freezes-over
), since i believe that the game probably changed a lot, i an starting a new thread.
One aspect that i particularly din't liked about M&M VIII is that races and classes are linked; Grimoire did it in a different way, races can gain bonuses or penalties depending the class that they choose. For example, an Vamphyr get a lot of bonuses from being an Assassin or a Necromancer, but if you try be an cleric, you will get a massive 90% penalty and thats makes sense. The cleric on this game isn't like clerics on D&D, you can be an "cleric of Orcus" on D&D. On M&M VIII Vampires can't use dark magic and clerics are always humans, you can't make an elf cleric like on M&M VII.
The complete table can be viewd bellow.
If you look to reviews, the game is very 8 or 80. Or you like it or you hate it. Even BG Siege of Dragonspear, is more easy to find people with neutral opinion. Anyone tested this game?
