The Tavern Chat Podcast - Episode #59 - Baldur's Gate Lead Designer Goes Greek with 5e

I'm a huge fan of Baldur's Gate 1 & 2. In my eyes, they set the highwater marks for the computer RPGs that followed, and I'm not sure if any have ever hit the mark. To see talent moving from computer games to RPGs is exciting.
James Ohlen (lead designer Baldur's Gate 1&2 and Neverwinter Nights) has retired from Bioware and is publishing a Greek-themed setting for 5e called Odyssey.

  1. BG was pretty quickly surpassed in my eyes when Arcanum came out, but that's probably just my bias for steampunk talking.
