RPGCodex.com has Trokia's Tim Cain in the hot seat tonight, answering questions regarding their upcoming D&D RPG, Greyhawk: The Temple of Elemental Evil. They look at everything from the party system to multiple endings. Here's some juice:
4.) Most party based games demand a balanced party because they lay out areas with monsters and traps. Will Temple of Elemental Evil require a balanced party? Or can you use an all similar class party?
Tim Cain: From the very beginning, we have checked our design to make sure we are not requiring any particular class to be in the player's party. This is easier in 3E, since many skills are available to more than just one class. But we also had to make sure we weren't making any bottlenecks in the main story arc that required the use of a particular magical spell or class ability, like turning undead. We realized the player may take a party of all fighters or all bards, and that party should be able to finish the game.
Now just because an all-one-class party is possible doesn't mean it's easy. Six wizards just don't have that many hit points.
