The system requirements are a bit interesting for the Mac.

Blimey, I'd forgotten all about that!

I like how it says El Cap or newer on Steam.

It's not a Metal requirement because the 320M doesn't support Metal. Probably just a graphics driver situation.

A lot of negative reviews on Steam...

It feels a bit like its a neverwinter nights like game... mixed with baldurs. I wonder how good it is, or if the reviews are all from people expecting something it was never intended to be... and thus not actually reviewing the actual game itself.

I pulled the trigger on it, and my first impressions are that it is like vanilla NWN.

The ruleset is 5e D&D, which I'm not very familiar with (- my PnP days stopped at 2e). Initial class choices are rogue, warrior, cleric, wizard, paladin, ranger. There's no multi-class option, but you can customise your character through talent choices (i.e your paladin can be a crusader). It's a single protagonist + NPC party. It's too early for me to draw conclusions on the game yet. A few initial observations:

1) There's no player character portrait, just a rendered image of your toon. This may not seem like a big deal, but I like proper portraits for my character.
2) Holy crap it runs like hell on my 2011 iMac. I realise this is at the bottom end of the system requirements (it's a 2.5 GHz i5/6770M/8 Gb system), but it plays like a slideshow with the graphics options turned down low. I guess I've been spoiled by Blizzard developers.
3) My gut instinct is that I'll like the game. I just need a better system to fully appreciate it.

The ones playing the game and not feeling ripped off that you can't place a dragon with the DM tools seems to enjoy it at least. I await better economy until I find out for myself...
You shouldn't ask yourself such worthless questions. Aim higher. Try this: why am I here? Why do I exist, and what is my purpose in this universe?

I think it's fair to say the game has an enormous amount of potential at this stage. DM mode looks interesting, but I can't see myself using it.

I can't wait to see what sort of mods are produced for it.
