For more information on the GWJ CRPG Club, go here.
Baldur's Gate is the GWJ CRPG's Club's seventh winner, the victor in one of our largest runaway election victories to date. Released in 1998, and then again as an enhanced edition in 2012, this RPG is a Bioware classic in the genre.
For our purposes, you can play either the standard edition or the enhanced edition. The game is currently playable on Windows, Mac OS, Android, and iOS. If you'd prefer to wait to play on the Switch, that version will be released on September 24, 2019. DLC for the game is optional. See the Helpful Links section for more information.
We'll be playing this game until December 31, 2019 . This thread is for friendly discussion as we play through the game. Share your reflections, successes, defeats, tactics, wishes, impressions, and whatever here! The more conversation the better, so post away.
For BIG spoilers, please use the spoiler tag. (No! I am your father!) Tactics, strategies, general story progression likely won't need them.
Anyone and everyone is welcome to participate, and can start at any time, so join the fun! One quick favor: If you decide to play, make a post here along the lines of "I'm in!" to let us know. If you start and finish the game before the end, you'll level up your GWJ CRPG Membership.
