A dominions 3 buddy and all round nice guy is creating a old school RPG. Support it here:
Legacy of the Last Refuge - Revenge of the Old School RPG
If you like the idea, donate, or spread the word. I'm wanting him to succeed. There needs to be more buzz.
You can play the Alpha for free. Be patient with it, the main area has not been fleshed out enough yet. So it can be hard to find the dungeons.
The permadeath + keeping playing mechanic is very interesting. Very Mordor: depths of Dejenol. A game a played A LOT ages ago, and probably still have installed somewhere. Ow, sweet memories.
