Will there ever be a nethergate sequal? I haven't played Nethergate for a while but I know that I was a pretty good game and I liked the idea of Celts Vs Romans. Maybe Jeff could make it after Geneforgie 3.

If Nethergate had sold well, then there would already be a Nethergate 3.

Thats a shame, so are you saying that there will be no more nerthergate styled games(and I do know about Avernum and geneforge etc).

Better not. Nethergate is very special, almost a small piece of art. If it sells or not is really not that important.

Um, it's probably pretty important to Jeff...

I don't know about a sequel, as all of the magic vanishes from the land at the end of the game, but i think that a prequel between the greater magics would be great

Nethergate II: no.

I still think Jeff could concentrate a bit more on games in the spirit of Nethergate. The old fantasy-dragon-sword genre gets a little boring from time to time. Geneforge is quite good, but still nothing compared to Nethergate. More "realistic" RPg, please!

Perhaps SW could be inspired by some other old culture (as the Romans and Celts in Nethergate)?

Not a bad idea!

Although, it would probably end up being just a copy of Nethergate, with the invaders and the magic-worshipping folk. But still, not a bad idea.

You could have Aztecs against any number of smaller groups that they took great joy in wiping off the face of the Earth. They were actually a lot like the Romans in some ways, although the Romans called their human sacrifices entertainment instead of worship.

—Alorael, who thinks the point is moot anyway. There will be no Nethergate 2, or NetherTenochtitlan, or anything else of the sort.

A Nethergate 2 would be fun. I really liked the mood of the original, but I didn't think that it left much room for a sequel of any sort. A prequel maybe.

Actually, it wouldn't necessarily have to be like that. The Spanish invaders, being Christian, could have control over traditional clerical magics, such as curing and healing spells. The Aztecs could have any manner of odd styles of magic, although they would need to be more dependent on magic than their enemies.

Another interesting idea from another part of the world could be the invasion of India by the Aryan peoples, who defeated the previous Dravidian inhabitants. However, not many standard gamers know that much about Indian history, so this idea might not go over so well.

In any case, a game based on historical events would be best as an individual game, not as a sequel to Nethergate.

I think Jeff should try some sci-fi. Nethergate is awesome, of course, as are the other series, but they're all set in medieval times. Anyway, Jeff seems to like to keep old graphics; an Aztec vs Spanish game, or Aztec vs little tribes, or whatever, wouldn't allow him to do that much; if he won't try sci-fi, I doubt he'll try Aztec.

hmm.. a sci-fi might be interesting. Having lazer guns and blasters... running around on alien planets... I can almost see it happening. :)
But the Aztec thing could be pretty good also.
