    Default Trying to find a really OLD rpg game.

    This is a very old DOS game I'm not exactly sure the name of it here's what I remember .

    Features:
    Was a DnD type game wizards etc.

    2.5d everything was sprite based but had a first person view kind of like DOOM.

    You were able to type questions and answers to NPC's using your keyboard and they would answer.

    Could bash doors and they would start cracking.

    There was a quest where you had to help some mute wizard.

    I think there was a quest for a group of ogres that talked about a whitewyrm or king of wyrms I forget.

    The first area had rats and lizardmen in a sewer.

    almost any rpgs pre-Fallout 1 is just too old for me to go back to. except for Darklands.

    i haven't played these games personally, but maybe Dungeon Master, Ultima Underworld, or Daggerfall?
    I hate TALKING. to PEOPLE. about THINGS.

    Too many games that fit into that. Might & Magic is really like that. But it could also be one of the Wizardry games. Or even one of those Das Schwarze Auge games like Realms of Arkania.

    I guess to tell more exactly it would be nice to know how the battle system was like. Wizardry has random encounters. Might & Magic has monsters walking around in a turn-based manner. DSA games have a top-down TRPG battle system.

    Also if you remember any spell name that would help too. Wizardry for example has so unique spell names that it's easy to recognize it's a Wizardry game just from a single spell name.

    the game has resemblance with Eclipse War Online. I am also amazed with the old games especially if they has "Something rare" Like Character transformation that's why i'm obssesed with this game. Haven't seen this feature on other MMORPG games that's why.

    What are you talking about? Even your previous post makes no sense to this thread. The OP didn't link anything at all.

    Only plays Burst Magic DPS Classes and Healers.
    Playing MMO: FFXIV (Ragnarok)
    Waiting On: EverQuest Next, FFXV, KH3 Saving For: An Epic Computer
