The outdoors and towns look really pretty with the trees and all. I especially liked the town in the massive tree. I couldn't find any bugs with the version I was playing which, for the record, was one of the early version. I think the dragon was still Klortis (or something).
The combat wasn't all that interesting and personally I didn't like how Ephesos handled the showdown with Kharpev.
Plot wasn't all that intriguing for me. For one thing it seems that when things finally start happening the scenario ends. Curse you sequel hook! Another thing, there is a valley of druids not in the Empire's iron grip? How did they pull that one off? Order of the Flame (the enemy) felt stupid from day one. There's something about a horde of vicious lizards that got me thinking: Huh? I mean, were they controlled by the dragon or are they just naturally intelligent?
Oakleaf was nice enough although I don't get how the other druids think so little of him. The villain is a crazy dragon (or is it a drake lord?). What is it with crazy dragons? There's the one in Bahssikava
and now this? Dialogue was nicely written, although I would have hoped more pointless random talk with locals... I always do.
Druids of Krell
is definitely worth a look. I just hope the sequel Ephesos is going on about does not include the fantastic rise of Kharpev the dragon. Actually, I hope he would just make the sequel; or maybe the story works better this way.
