You're back.

I don't think the story is at all bad, it's just not the selling point. It's just a classic quest -- powerful artifact and looming disaster. Unwitting low level adventurers somehow end with a crown that could determine the fate of the world.

What was the story of Icewind Dale? Something about a devil wanting to destroy the world? I really can't remember. But I do remember some of the more challenging battles from that game.

For a dungeon crawl, the story isn't bad at all.
