For those of you who were fans of Neverwinter Nights this looking like the closest thing to a sucessor for awhile. Thankfully it has already reached its initial funding goal a few days after the kickstarter was launched which shows how popular the idea is. The devs are pretty open minded and the community is made up of NWN and UO players so anyone from either game should feel pretty at home. The amount of customization available to player run Shards is arguably even more than NWN with pretty much every aspect of the gameplay being modifiable. A dev already confirmed that it would be theoretically possible to write a D&D based ruleset as Lua the scripting language their game is using is quite flexible. I encourage folks even if they do not choose to back the money wise just yet to sign up on the forums and make yourselfs a part of the community so that we have our voices heard in shaping this game.
