Welcome to the D&D World!
One of my favorite RPG experiences growing up as a young TurboFan-16 was playing through the classic style TSR/SSI Role Playing Game - Order of the Griffon! Order of the Griffon (or OotG) had a style of gameplay that hadn't been done on the Turbo before. A classic style first person view RPG with an element of true freedom. It wasn't a straight up dungeon romp, it had all the elements of the actual D&D world. Outside of actually creating your own characters, you were able to go wherever your HP could take you. Go to the Inn for a few drinks, search random buildings along the way or do anything to make your party the most powerful in all the land.
OotG had a very classic style SSI battle system seen in many oldschool DOS/Amiga/Tandy/Apple/Insert Random classic computer name here games like Curse of the Azure Bonds or Pool of Radiance. So if you're a fan of those games, you truly can't pass this one up! Check out my Quickie video here and let me know what you think!!
