    The <a href="http://www.rpgcodex.com/content.php?id=75">post release chat log</a> of <a href="http://www.greyhawkgame.com">Temple of Elemental Evil</a>, where <a href="http://www.troikagames.com">Troika</a> said things like this:
    <br>
    <br>
    <blockquote><b>[Exitium]</b> <b>[Mearas]</b> Besides removing the kids, has the game been altered in any other signigicant way as a result of switching ratings?
    <br>
    <b>[TimCain]</b> Yes. Several dialogs and quests were removed entirely, as were some characters.
    <br>
    <b>[<b>[Troika]</b>Tom]</b> One whole map with side quests, the brothel in Nulb, was removed
    <br>
    <b>[ReAnimator]</b> ouch!
    <br>
    <b>[TimCain]</b> Plus, Tom said some bad words in a few dialogs...
    <br>
    <b>[TimCain]</b> :)
    <br>
    <b>[<b>[troika]</b>hnguyen]</b> :)
    <br>
    <b>[<b>[Troika]</b>Steve]</b> Code was generally untouched for the censors, so I had smooth sailing.
    <br>
    <b>[<b>[troika]</b>hnguyen]</b> i wish the bad words were still in :(
    <br>
    <b>[TimCain]</b> Also, you will notice that Dick Rentsch is now just Rentsch
    <br>
    <b>[<b>[Troika]</b>Tom]</b> Tim used a bad word once, too!
    <br>
    <b>[TimCain]</b> I did?
    <br>
    <b>[ReAnimator]</b> I had to cover up some private areas on some models
    <br>
    <b>[<b>[Troika]</b>Steve]</b> Because Richard is such a horrible name to name someone.
    <br>
    <b>[<b>[troika]</b>hnguyen]</b> LOL
    <br>
    <b><i>* TimCain says "Done"</i></b></blockquote>
    <br>
    <br>
    I want the naughty bits back!
    <br>

    Who's Reanimator?

    Oh, and forced T ratings suck. Why couldn't they leave Richard in? That's worse than the whole "niggardly" flap.

    I thought the chat was kinda disappointing. I was hoping for a litte more info on those Post-Apoc pics.

    Yeah, I was hoping for more on that as well. I guess he decided to err on the side of caution.

    I hope to god that Troika never does any business with Atari ever again. ToEE is a POS that had a lot of potential of being good.

    Dammit, can there be at least 1 CRPG be worth buying this year for the PC by the big boys or are we just going to continue to get crap?

    That's why I replied to your statement on not buying shareware CRPGs with, That sounds like a personal issue. I like ToEE, but games like Prelude to Darkness and Geneforge top it in most areas that aren't graphics and sound related.
