    An IceWind Dale (2?) Coop Run. Takers?

    I'll just go ahead and say we try our first attempt on this at Wednesday the 9th of May, at 8 BST/9 CET.

    Add me on Steam if you're interested and give me a quick shout. If more than 6 contact me I'll prefer those who came first in this thread but with some luck we'll be enough then to create a second party.

    Please get GameRanger set up to ensure working multiplayer. It's straightforward, only in rare cases you might need to forward ports.

    For communication purposes we're going to use the inofficial RPS Mumble server and the ingame chat. Mumble is a free VOIP client like Teamspeak. Connect to server.herosquad.org and the default port. Password if prompted is rumpus. Please use push-to-talk instead of voice activation, listening to you scolding your cat or eating cheetos isn't as delightful as it sounds.

    Game Version is v2.01 (101615) (start the game and check the options menu)

    Spreadsheet for classes 'n stuff.

    Old Post:
    Is anyone interested in doing this? 6 people would be awesome but of course we could split characters if we had less.

    And why IceWind Dale instead of BG?
    Well, less dialog, more fighting and someone to exchange small talk with while doing the more tedious parts of the game - what could go wrong?

    Personally I'd prefer doing IWD2 as its Multiplayer is supposed to run without much hassle using GameRanger.

    I hear word that IWD#1 is better? They are the 2 infinity engine games I never played, but yes after buying them recently from GamersGate I would certainly be interested in some cooperative gathering my adventurers before venturing forth.

    I see that there six players have signed up already, but if it turns out somebody doesn't have time after all, I'd very much be up for it :)

    I would be interested, although I don't own the game and therefore never played it. But I don't think that this would be much of a problem, since you can get from almost everywhere by now.

    Too many conversations and store runs for me. Been there, done that, spent a lot of time waiting for people to do things. Good luck to you guys though.

    The ideal is someone who can summon demons, that made playing NWN hilarious.

    When outside the starting pub looks like Dante's Inferno you know you've found a good server.

    It's a shame IWD doesn't have Wild Mages.

    I'm so down for this if it's not too late. IWD 1 or 2 is fine; I've no preference. I'm East Coast, USA but I'll try to be as flexible as possible with playtimes if I can make it work.

    Gentleman! I've come back from the depths of Grimrock and would be interested to finally get this thing going. If those listed at the beginning of the thread could post a preferred weekday and maybe add me on Steam if not already done so?

    I might set up a spreadsheet or something if need be, but atm. I'd prefer to keep it "local".

    In case somebody doesn't show up I'd be interested to act as a filler guy. I can make most weekdays after 7-8p.m. UTC+1.

    If you guys ever need another, I'd be up for an Icewind Dale 2 run.

    The first game is widely considered to be better but I'm already halfway through a rerun of it so I'm not that interested in starting it over. Plus I feel that Icewind Dale 2's ruleset is a better fit for a multiplayer run.

    I was planning to make another run through it with a full halfling/gnome/dwarf team so I'll probably pick a small guy.
