For those of you that like such things, the Krynn/Ravenloft/Dark Sun gold boxes are newly available for Macs from GoG.

I loved the Krynn series as a teenager. Haven't tried the other two, but they look interesting (gameplay-wise, Dark Sun seems to be a proto-BG).

I've heard good things about all these games, but particularly about the Dark Sun games. They've been on my list for a long time.

I played the Krynn series on an Amiga 500 during my summer holidays as a kid, one game per summer. As a fan of the AD&D Dragonlance campaigns I loved them. So the nostalgia value is there for me. That said, these games are 25+ years old now, and show it too. But they still play well if you can overlook this.

Dark Sun i've not tried. Looking forward to it. I remember playing a Buck Rogers Gold Box too.  That was pretty cool.

Yeah, Buck Rogers is another one on my list. Just hope there aren't too many trash mobs, that's usually the main problem I have with a some of the older RPGs.
