Bard's Tale

Not sure how many of you have the remastered Bard's Tale trilogy. Playing it has been fun, and while the same, it is a bit different from the original. My favorite addition is the mini map. No longer will I be hampered by needing lots of extra time and graph paper. The other thing I like is saving anywhere. Yes, this can lead to abuse, but for me, not having to hike all the way back to the Adventurers Guild just to get off definitely has its perks.

So, either from this remastered version or the original, what do you like as a party formation? Not necessarily the best or optimal, unless that's what you play, but what combinations you have fun throwing together.

For me, I have a male Dwarf Warrior, Grogni (1) to act as a bodyguard for my avatar, TJ the Wolf, a male Human Conjurer (5). Then I have a male Elf Paladin, Fyr Brightleaf (2) and his companion, a female Elf Magician, Mystvale (6). In slots (3) and (4) I have a female Human Hunter, Shanna and a male Human Bard, Talver.

In reserve I have a male Human Monk, Will and a male Gnome Magician, Fizzlebit and a female Half Elf Thief, Lae Shadows. Don't know of I'll use them at all, but they're there in case I want to. The Monk is already level 7, and pretty good at unarmed and unarmored combat.

Names are not my strong suit, but I was happy enough with them.

Re: Bard's Tale

Hold up, there's a remastered trilogy? Can I finally get into a franchise I've been trying to get into for over fifteen years now?

Re: Bard's Tale

I borrowed Bard's Tale from a friend for a day in the 90's and it blew me away. That one day stayed in my mind for decades. I tried it again a few years ago and I couldn't get into it.

I spend 100's of hours playing Might and Magic 2: Gates to Another World - Sega Genesis in the 90s. From my memory they were pretty similar.

Re: Bard's Tale

I've actually never played a Bard's Tale game but I've always been interested. Ironically I just saw an advertisement for Bard's Tale IV the other day that got my attention. Instead of the usual kick starter idea they are gonna reduce the retail price depending on how many people wishlist it on Steam and GOG.

Pretty cool idea I think.

Re: Bard's Tale

Bard's Tale IV has been the only thing I have ever backed. Of course I'm not sure my pc can handle it when it comes out, I think in September. They had the usual kickstarter first. I did it primarily for the original trilogy.

Good games, good concepts, good artwork. The mapping though. No. It was too time consuming and then when I lost all my work I never touched it again. Until I got the email saying the Remastered Trilogy has been released. Well, at least the first one of the trilogy. Same feel as the original games, but accessible now. Automapping, saving, a bit less grinding. To me, it's the perfect time to get into them. You get all the good parts of the games that defined the genre without all the without the technological limitations of the 80s.
