You'll find this piece of news refreshing if your thirst for Wizardry 8 information is, like mine, unending. GamesDomain plopped up a page's length preview of this massive-looking stat happy RPG by Sirtech Canada set in complete 3D. A sprinkling:
There will be eleven available races including Dracons, Dwarves, Elves, Faeries, Felpurrs, Gnomes, Hobbits, Humans, Lizardmen, Mooks, and Rawulfs. There will be fifteen different character classes to choose from including Alchemist, Bard, Bishop, Fighter, Gadgeteer, Lords, Mages, Monks, Ninja, Priest, Psionic, Ranger, Rogue, Samurai, and Valkyrie. Each class possesses special abilities and skill bonuses. For example, Rogues have additional skill in picking locks and disarming traps, while Monks are more adept at martial arts. Special abilities include the Gadgeteer's ability to combine items into useful gadgets, the Bard's ability to play magical musical instruments (allowing the party to rest faster), and the Valkyrie's ability to cheat death.
