3rd edition[edit]

Was this the first of Bioware/Black Isle's Forgotten realm games to use the 3rd edition ruleset? Or the first D&D video game to do so? I thought it was. If that's the case it might be interesting to add that as a trivia tidbit. TotalTommyTerror 07:02, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

IMDb and GameSpot claim Icewind Dale 2 was released about September 2002. Neverwinter Nights was released June 2002, while Pool of Radiance: Ruins of Myth Drannor was relased a whole year prior, in September 2001, and must be the earliest 3rd edition game. Finally, Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal from June 2001 had 3rd ed. elements like new character classes, but they were implemented in the 2nd ed. used in the BG series.

I read through the article and the plot synopsis should probably be flagged with a spoiler tag. Thanks for spoiling the game for me! Lstanley1979 (talk) 17:59, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

There's a huge discussion (started often by newbies) about this... oh, every Monday. Spoiler tags have been generally discouraged by Wikipedia consensus (I may not necessarily agree, but that is the status atm). If you read a section called "plot"... you have to be prepared for such information. It's not our fault you read it! Ingolfson (talk) 01:06, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Plot references[edit]

The plot section needs to be rewritten and referenced. Unfortunately, I don't have access to the game right now, and I've forgotten several of the plot points. However, the manual says that you can save the contents of the journal to a text file by hitting CTRL-A on the journal page. The text file is found in the \mpsave directory of Icewind Dale II, in the folder of the last saved or last loaded save game. I'm not completely sure what the last part means, but it's what the manual says. If anyone has a save at the end of the game available, I would really appreciate it if you could post your journal on this talk page. Also, you should probably put <!-- at the front of the text, and --> at the end. This will make it invisible to anyone who isn't editing the page. (talk) 02:54, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

Just a tip: if you don't get a response here, you might try posting to Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Dungeons & Dragons. Adrian J. Hunter(talkcontribs) 05:10, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
There's an editor who watches the project page and who knows a bit about D&D games. User:Drilnoth might know something helpful. - Peregrine Fisher (talk) (contribs) 05:21, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for the advice. I'll try that and see what happens. (talk) 21:42, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
Unfortunately, I don't have a copy of the game and I don't know anyone who does. I actually haven't played too many D&D video games, I'm just really interested in their development, reception, etc. Sorry, but I can't really help you here; searching the web is probably your best bet. –Drilnoth (T • C • L) 18:33, 31 August 2009 (UTC)
I see. I'll check around a little more, then. Thanks for your time, again. (talk) 22:00, 31 August 2009 (UTC)
Here you go: [1], It's so much text that I didn't find it feasible to post it in this talk page. --Mika1h (talk) 22:19, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
I'd almost given up hope of getting this; I can't thank you enough. I'll be able to write the story section now. (talk) 20:00, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

Most of those plot references seem to broken. --Mika1h (talk) 00:47, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

Fixed. --Mika1h (talk) 10:22, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
It looks like my IP changed again; this is I just saw your message, but you've already taken care of it. Thanks again, Mika1h. (talk) 02:40, 7 November 2009 (UTC)
