    Now you know who the seller was!!!


    joking aside, that is fun to see. I think SSG ought to consider creating objects like this that are not just a Tshirt. They are fun. Miniatures with 3D printing is easy now...So many things that could be just a nice touch that references PnP for eyesake.

    Wow, very kool!

    I would love to see a Playmat or a cloth mat made with some DDO stuff.

    Great find with the Stormreach Limited Edition box with the plastic still on it! Heard about the unboxing on DDO Players, sorry to hear that Drac didn't get that box he had ordered back in the day.

    Going through the video, it would be really cool if you could actually add some of those images close up, maybe just camera images to this thread. (I know, annoying request, only if you have the time!! O/ )
    Here are a few points I thought were interesting:
    - that original character selection screen would be amazing to see close up
    - the key bind layout sheet looks very special too, it reminds me of games from in the 90's with key bind information, nowadays everything is manageable through the UI so a poster isn't necessary
    - that Stormreach map looks amazing! From what I can see Lordsmarch and House Kundarak are on opposite sides, did they switch at some point in game? Maybe Market is facing the wrong way in the image as well
    - That miniature looks great, what did you say it was, a 'Deathlock'? It looked like there was some details of the figure on the card on the back, does that have anything to do with DDO at all?
    - the artwork and music would be worth it for another video as well as you mentioned
    - I think a look through the manual might be worth a video too, it would be an interesting look at what the developers thought would be important for players to know at the very start of the game when level 10 was cap. The information would be dated but that gap would be very interesting to show how the game had progressed over time

    I did a bit of looking around and was able to find some Youtube videos on the Dragonshard game as well, their take on Eberron is pretty neat. I'll add one link for reference to points added below.

    Their take on the Lyrandar Airship at the :14 mark was pretty cool. The UI layout kind of reminds me of the Baldurs Gate games and characters on the selection screen look very close to WOW. One of the characters is a Warforged but it actually looks like a Warforged Titan, (0:56) imagine trying to get one of those around Stormreach! Game play itself looks like the earlier Warcraft games. Most will probably write it off as some older iteration of a D&D PC game but they had something DDO still does not have - ETTINS!!! (found at the 5:50 mark) Finally, their take on the Gelatinous Cube monster at the 12:02 mark is pretty hilarious.

    Well, enough with the digression there. I'll finish with a shout out to Axel who put together a similar unboxing a couple months ago:
    https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthrea...ysical-Release

    Not a Limited Edition box but interesting to see the difference as it might be a US version where Band's is a UK version?

    Fine work guys!

    Hey! I took a few images and uploaded them to imgur, here is the link click here
    I'm editing the video now where i go through the discs! However there is so much to explore so im doing a video series on it. Link to the playlist is here: Click here

    I'm planning on ordering the full games of old D&D games. I've played Baldur's gate 1, and 2 before but ill replay them for series. Ill post them onto this channel as they are D&D related!
    Take care!

    Yeah it is entertaining to say the least lol. It's interesting pointing out the differences in the gameplay. I plan on ordering the game soon, so i can do a unboxing and playthrough!

    Yeah maybe. I'll also order the one Axel has, just for the collection.
    And yes their may be differences, one noticeable one is the age rating. Here in UK we use numbers ie- 12. In US i believe they use stuff like Teens, Mature ect.
