Here is a list
of all of the sites currently hosted by Sorcerer's Place:
Codex is a fan site for single-player PC RPGs. There’s no
coverage at all of any MMORPGs or console RPGs on the site. They
cover anything from more hardcore RPGs like Fallout or
Planescape: Torment to action RPGs like Sacred
or Diablo II to hack’n’slash games like Temple
of Elemental Evil or Silent Storm (which is essentially
a dungeon crawler set in World War II) and even a bunch of games
they don’t even like that much. They're somewhat infamous
for their nearly unique point of view on BioWare’s smash hit
Neverwinter Nights, that point of view being that it sucks.
They simply have more strict criteria for what a good RPG is than
most sites out there.
Every day, they
bring you as much RPG news as they possibly can. They scour the
Internet looking for relevant and interesting newsbits to bring
to their readers and also offer a healthy dose of commentary as
well. If something big happens in the RPG world, you can read about
it at the RPG Codex. Besides that, you can count on the Codex to
bring you information about titles you’d never hear about
on bigger sites. They’re all real big fans of the independent
CRPG scene and are dedicated to supporting share- and freeware games
by letting people know about them. If Jeff Vogel of Spiderweb Games
has a new title out, they’ll let you know. If a hot Rogue-like
just got a big update, you can read about it on the RPG Codex.
a number of chunks of content ranging from traditional reviews and
interviews to occasional developer chats and the odd contest. Their
dedication to promoting indie games shows here, too. You’re
just as likely to find an interview or review of a shareware RPG
like Escape Velocity Nova as you are to find out what we
thought of Knights of the Old Republic. Another great source
of information is their forums. Some of the biggest names in the
CRPG industry like to drop by their boards for a discussion, including
people like Feargus Urquhart (Obsidian Entertainment), Tim Cain
(Troika Games), David Gaider (BioWare Corp.) and J.E. Sawyer (Midway).
They also get lower-profile (though no less talented) developers
dropping by. For instance, they host forums for Zero Sum’s
Prelude to Darkness and Wolf Mittag’s Teudogar
and the Alliance with Rome where anyone can ask questions and
have them directly answered by the developers. Not only that, their
forum regulars are pretty darn sharp, too. Also, if you want to
know anything about a given game, check out their extensive games
database. They keep records on every game they cover as well as
the companies who make them and some developers who particularly
stand out--usually the ones who come visit their forums.
you want up-to-date dirt on RPGs and some intelligent and heated discussion
of said RPGs, stop by the RPG Codex.
of Eight is a veritable resource of information pertaining to Temple
of Elemental Evil, created by Troika Games. It is the proud host
of the Temple of Elemental Evil fan modification forums for the
past 2 years.
forums serve modifications that not only fix known issues with the
game, but also enhance the gamer's experience by offering new items,
the ability to craft previously unseen items, quests and locations
such as the Brothel, and the readdition of children, among many
other significant improvements. The community is alive and vibrant,
producing new features and tweaks for a very addictive RPG.
ever played RPGs like Temple of Elemental Evil and thought that it
could be better, join the Circle of Eight to meet likeminded individuals
and discover new ways to expand your roleplaying horizons.
and Cover is one of the two major Fallout fan sites on the internet,
the other being No Mutants Allowed. As well as daily news on all
things apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic, from books to films to
games to current affairs, Duck and Cover is home to a very strong
community. Fallout fans are notorious for being stubborn and uncompromising,
and Duck and Cover is host to thousands of them.
The truth is that the community is passionate about the Fallout
series of RPGs, and the fans produce a great deal of constructive
debate about Fallout and what the future of the franchise should
be. Duck and Cover also has a wealth of fan art, fan fiction, files
and various screenshots and images. It hosts five other sites related
to the community, Fallout, or similar games, and developers from
companies associated with the Fallout franchise, past and future,
often spend time in the forums to talk about their games.
If you're interested in the Fallout series of RPGs, or the post-apocalyptic
setting in general, you should spend some time on Duck and Cover.
It's an experience like no other.
1998 Tim Cain, Leonard Boyarsky and Jason Anderson founded Troika
Games. When their first title "Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick
Obscura" was announced in 2000, Terra-Arcanum was established
with the goal of providing as much information about the upcoming
game as possible. When Arcanum was finally released, TA proved to
be the number one resource for information about the game.
Today, Troika Games is no more but Terra-Arcanum still lives. While
initially created as a fan-site for Arcanum and any possible Arcanum
sequels, with the demise of Troika, TA has since moved on to provide
information about all of Troika's games which includes Dungeons
and Dragons - Greyhawk: the Temple of Elemental Evil, Vampire: the
Masquerade - Bloodlines and Mystary! the post-apocalyptic RPG idea
by Troika which sadly, never found a publisher.
Over time this content is always being added to with fan-fiction,
fan-art, walkthroughs and other information. So if you're a fan of
Troika's Games, come on over and pay Terra-Arcanum a visit. In particular,
the forum community is still able to provide helpful hints and tips
about Arcanum for anyone who's stuck.
Pit resulted from a merger of two Planescape: Torment fansites,
The Mazes and Well of Torment. While The Mazes had a really nice
design (and did quite well in IGN's Torment Fansite Competition),
Well Of Torment was the only fansite at the time with an active
staff, regular updates and a bunch of original content. The two
were merged into The Pit, which was the biggest, baddest Torment
fansite up until and right after the game was released. Of course,
other fish soon appeared in the same pond (such as Sorcerer's),
but The Pit remained the favorite for the old-school Torment community.
While no longer updated, it remains a useful source of Torment info
and a nice piece of Planescape: Torment community history.
Cancer is a website devoted to news and commentary on strategy games
of all kinds. From Starcraft to Master of Magic, it's all here,
baby. Each day, they bring you the best news about strategy games,
along with Spicy Hawt™ commentary. Every so often a TCancer
editor will get bored enough that they'll decide to write up a long-winded
review of the newest (and sometimes not-so-newest) strategy games.
Yessir, TCancer has it all! It's the magic of children.
Infinity Engine Utilities and Mods
hosts a number of popular Infinity Engine mods (for both roleplaying
and tactical combat):

and module distribution utility. WeiDU is useful for packaging up
mods, viewing game text and searching for resources.

annoyances and make replaying easier (e.g., by removing annoying
sounds or allowing unlimited item stacking).
- The Tactics Mod contains a number of components that make the
game more challenging.
- The Item Upgrade Mod allows many BG2 items to be enhanced for
convenience, roleplaying or power.
