Wizardry 6: Bane of the Cosmic Forge
Prepare yourself for a journey of epic proportions as you embark on a quest to retrieve a powerful artifact--the magical pen known as the Cosmic Forge. Its writings affect both Time and Space, allowing its holder to rewrite reality itself! Build your party of six companions, determine their skills, professions, and stats and enter the ancient castle where you’ll find treasure, armor, and powerful magic items to advance your quest. Meet the fortress' wizened and cryptic dwellers who hold secrets that must be unearthed and solve the riddles and puzzles that abound. Beware, however, as you and your party of stalwart adventurers will encounter countless dangers, hazards, and creatures of dazzling and terrifying form. Only by using your magic and skills, ever growing as you progress, can the dangers of the dungeon be vanquished. With over 400 items ranging from armor to weaponry researched for authenticity to the tactical combat structure, with Primary and Secondary attacks, Wizardry 6 stands tall against any and all RPGs.

You won’t be alone in your quest, however, as other adventuring groups are after the very same goal. Choose your actions wisely as there will be consequences: if you anger one person, be prepared to fight his friends later! From the depths of a dungeon to the blue and limitless skies, you’ll see it all in Wizardry 7: Crusaders of the Dark Savant.

Wizardry 6 was one of my first games I owned (still have both boxed copies) and I loved it.
But be warned: both games are extremely unforgiving in the first 5 hours of gameplay and you absolutely need to read the description of advantages and weaknesses of the races, classes and the combat system.
Also have pen & paper ready for drawing your maps.

Finally! Wizardry 6 and 7 are two of the best crpgs ever made. Complex character generation system, huge world, challenging gameplay, entertaining story, the mix of sci-fi and fantasy elements make these games memorable. Bane of the Cosmic forge is a great beginning for the Dark Savant saga with innovative ideas that remain in the sequels. Crusaders of the Dark Savant is probablyread more the deepest, toughest, meanest crpg ever made. If you want to spend hundreds of hours and you're not afraid of some challenge, then start with Bane, continue with Crusaders, and then buy Wizardry 8. The best part? You can finish the trilogy with the same party you started with. Need a good advice? Fairy ninjas are awesome and being female can be a huge boon.

One of the best RPGs out there! Wiz7 is even much better, but I would recommend to start with Wiz6 for completeness and great fun as well. Make sure you google for *Cosmic Forge* editor and Wizardry forum on postcount dot net!
