A deeper look at ToEE's character creation
In the last feature about the character creation in Troika's Temple of Elemental Evil we presented a step-by-step demonstration of the character creation process. This time we'll have a deeper look at the details that could be seen in the screenshots released by Atari.

Tim Cain Q&A #2
The last time we interviewed Tim Cain "Temple of Elemental Evil" was not even announced. Now that the game is nearing completion, we had the opportunity to ask some questions again. Please note that the questions were sent to Tim Cain before gold status was announced.

Character creation in ToEE
Today Brandon Smith, Senior Brand Manager at Atari Los Angeles, provided us with some brand new screenshots showing the character creation process in ToEE. So I decided to create a small demonstration of how character creation works in ToEE!

What is Challenge Rating?
Scott "Bleed the Freak" Lufkin has written an interesting article on the Challenge Rating in D&D Third Edition.

"There has been some discussion about why the new DnD 3E rules have a scaling experience point system rather then the old school static XP system of older games, such as second edition Dungeons and Dragons or the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. system from Fallout (and its spin-offs). Since Greyhawk will be using the challenge rating system (in so far as we have been made aware) from the 3E rules, I thought a break down of what it is, as well as some common arguments on what makes it better, would be in order."
