Everyone's favorite male hair model, Vault Dweller, has unveiled the official Age of Decadence website!

7 distinctive gameplay styles: from knight, serving a Noble House to grifter, preying on greed and gullibility.

23 skills, ranging from Dagger and Critical Strike to Disguise and Persuasion to Crafting and Lore.

Action Point-based combat system, featuring a flexible set of standard attacks, special attacks such as whirlwind and impale, and aimed attacks at different body parts.

8 weapon types: daggers, swords, axes, hammers, spears, bows, crossbows, throwing weapons, each with individual traits.

Non-combat quests resolutions and a well-developed diplomatic path ( "The best weapon against an enemy is another enemy." )

Over 100 quests, taking you to 22 locations: towns, outposts, archeological digs, sealed places of Power, underground facilities, and temples.

Each situation has multiple ways of handling it, based on your skills, reputation, and connections. Each way has consequences that will affect someone or something.

Extensive dialogues trees, written with role-playing in mind. You can use many skills in dialogues, take actions like stealing or sneak-attacking, and play your character with personality as you see fit.

An interesting world with rich history and unclear future that your actions can shape into seven very different game endings.

Detailed crafting and alchemy systems: melt items and create new ones, balance your sword, play with Greek fire, increase your poison's potency, use corrosive acid on locks, and experiment with black powder.

Hundreds of items, ranging from weapons & armor to scrolls, tools, flasks, and pre-war relics.

3D world created with Torque Game Engine, featuring detailed locations and almost 200 unique animations.


Go check it out and be amazed!

Looks great. Too bad there aren't no plans to bring it to stores!!! Otherwise, I'd scoop it up with ease.

Buying something online isn't nearly as risky as you seem to think.

Irrelevant. Don't waste your time.

The game looks great. I don't buy games on line currently. Maybe in the future; but now. Period.

I don't need to explain my reasons to you.

Game over.

If that's your attitude, don't mention it in every ****ing message you post.

Every post? Surely your exaggerate.

I wanted to post in this thread because the game looks great, and people buy games based on my seal of approval ('cause I'm that darn good) so I wanted to help the VDMeister out.

However, Ia lso feel people shoudl realzie that this game cna't be bought in stores as they have the right to know that.

Game over. Again. Geez.


P.S. the game will have great role-playing. Period. :cool:

Magical Volo had his identity stolen from the internet once. I'd be cautious too.

Back to the topic: is there anyone who disagrees with the absolute fact that this is going to be the bet RPG ever?

Um.. I do. It certainly has the potential to be; but let's play it first before confirming it.

Raven: Since almost all my posts are about that issue, I'm sure a quick seatrch will give you the answer you seek. :lol:

If that's true, then it would be much more productive if he mentioned that when he complains about games sold strictly online. Otherwise he really isn't adding anything to the topic. By telling his story, he's helping us make informed decisions. That's what I see as the best thing about forums.

*sigh* Let's go over this thread again, shall we?

and, "However, I also feel people should realize that this game can't be bought in stores as they have the right to know that."


That's why I posted in this thread, and why I bothered to mention my Purchase Rule tm at all..


Geez.. people. READ. :lol:


P.S. Again, this is about TAOD. Not TBONB.


Thank you. :)

You could get one of those temporary credit cards that are useless to steal the numbers for. Or your credit card company may let you use a fake number online to link to your account just once.

I personally don't worry too much about buying things online, but IF security is your reason, there are options.

We can not be bothered with the Search function. Our time is precious at the moment. :)

I'm pretty pumped about this game. The setting looks nice. The artwork is beautiful.

BTW, this will be shareware. I'll reserve judgement until I get my hands on that. Full game will be 25$.

Good work on the interview, Dhruin. Posted Image

You should have asked more hard-hitting questions, though, like:
"Is it true you're trying to destroy the RPG genre single-handedly?"
and
"Why don't you like Obilvion?"
and
"Why does the game look like a NWN mod?"
Stuff like that.

When the game comes to the store shelves I will definitely give it a buy, but I will not purchase it over the Internet. Did it once, I will not do it again. I hope they are successful in this endaevor. It looks like it has potential. :p
