Based on the first D&D computer RPG, Pool Of Radiance: Ruins of Myth Drannor is a new Dungeons & Dragons computer role-playing game set in the popular world of the Forgotten Realms.


It is the first game to use the new 3rd Edition Rules set, and uses fully-realized 3D animating characters and interactive environments that allow players to break open crates, bar doors by pushing tables, and peer through windows.

A new Pool of Radiance has risen beneath the ruined elven city of Myth Drannor. Enlisted by the good wizard Elminster, the player characters are swept into a tale of utmost danger and evil. In the end, a mysterious cult is found to be behind the nefarious pool and the party faces not only a variety of fantastical creatures, but an undead dragon, a "dracolich" as well.

The game begins as an adventure for up to four characters. As the story progresses, the characters meet potential allies that might be persuaded to join your cause (for a total of six characters in your party), battle vicious foes of evil, and try to overcome a host of challenges and puzzles along the way. Driven by an intense story, with multiple side quests that enrich the world and the characters in it, the player will take a "behind the seat" look into the tragedy of the city's current state and the grandeur it once boasted in times past. In the end, it will be the player's heroics that can save the city of Myth Drannor from evil's grasp and restore peace to the surrounding lands.
