Based on what I’ve seen thus far, I think we’ve got a lot to be excited about with Solasta: Crown of the Magister.

As an old-school D&D player (and someone who’s played every Baldur’s Gate game, and Temple of the Elemental Evil), I appreciate a good fantasy RPG based on the D&D ruleset. I haven’t picked up my dice in many, many years (having last played D&D during the 3.0 ruleset’s reign), but that doesn’t mean I don’t still have the itch.

Baldur’s Gate 3 looks amazing, but Solasta could be a nice supplement to the genre of D&D-based RPGs. Fans of the gameplay tend to clamor for just about everything done well in the universe, and I expect that Solasta, if done well, should prove to be a nice addition.

Stealth gameplay itself is where it’s at, though; I’m afraid I am woefully lacking in experience on the modern D&D stealth mechanics, but there is a lot to be interested here with the tactical gameplay and Z-axis considerations exhibited in demonstrations.

Keep an eye out for it on Steam. With any luck, it’ll end up giving us plenty of time spent agonizing over movement, spells, and our chance to roll a natural 20.
