I posted a thread in my little forum to go ahead and make a running list of things that I love about Wizardry Online, I’m working on a thread for things that I don’t particularly like about Wizardry as well, but since this is is a fan site I figured it would be prudent to make the good list first!
My Mom has even gone ahead and weighed in on the matter as well, posting some of the things that she likes about the game (and some of the things that scare her too!)
Indeed, you heard it right, it’s on AGAIN! In our last episode, I used my charm magic to get my Mom to play Wizardry online with me, and I told you a bit about our night. I’m gonna go back to that first part into a little more detail first though, how the heck did I get my Mom to play Wizardry with her?
It’s not a game that people who don’t usually play games like this would pick up and start playing, it’s billed for being particularly difficult, or ‘hardcore’, it was a pretty weird idea. However I had one thing going for me, my Mom loves Science Fiction and Fantasy, and I believe played DnD back in the day.

I’ve gone ahead and laid down a nice Races page, I’ve gone and restructured the menus, so check through them all to see what I’ve done! New dungeon guides and my overly detailed maps coming very soon! I’m playing Wizardry with Mom tonight for round three, so I’ll have a new post up soon! There are forums, as well that you should check out, take a look at the landing page for more information here.
My friend at WizardryVault.com, Aliased Loktofeit was kind enough to feature my article about my Mother and Wizardry! Very much so appreciated =).
PS. Sorry I missed you on IRC this morning, I was still not quite awake yet!
So I somehow convinced my Mom to play Wizardry Online with me! My Mom is not a heavy gamer, she’s got quite a bit of experience with the consoles, especially if you go back to the ps1 era, she’s got a lot of experience. However she is a PC power user, she’s also hardcore enough to beat gears of war on insane mode, but WASD / mouse styled games are not in her sphere of experience. A more seasoned Mouse/Keyboard gamer may not realize it, but it’s actually quite difficult to get your bearings in a game like this, especially when your character and the camera angle/position are completely independent of each other.

The Connection problems seem to be behind us!
I wanted to take a quick minute to go ahead and report that I’ve had nothing but great connections with Wizardry, the only thing that has been happening is that over the course of a few hours of playing I got disconnected, if I tried to reconnect without restarting the client it would hang at connect, but after restarting the client it would put me through straight away and things would be perfectly fine! I’m going to be writing a blog post about my play time last night, but for now I need sleep!
