i am looking for a good free dungeons and dragons game. online would be preferable, but downloadable is good, too.

NWN 2 isn't free, but I'm with Shade there, the NWN series is THE D&D collection to own for PC.
you might want to check out the free version of minions of mirth. it is a 3d mmorpg in the tradition of d&d. i have been playing it for several weeks now and am having a good time. it also has a premium version for a one time fee of $30 (no monthly fee though). if ya know python or graphics you can also contribute to the development.
all in all it is a pretty fun game, especially for the price.
This depends entirely on your definition of "free".........

I picked up the first NWN "diamond" for $20. That's the original game, 2 expansions, and the "best of" community-created content. Pretty good deal, I think it was Shade here who suggested it to me a few months ago.

dudemus: link to where they talk about the python source?
lemme find it again, i read it in their forums somewhere, they had a history of the development. it is an independent game brought to life by two people with community help. will post it when i find it.
go forums>modding for the base info, i couldn't find the thread i was looking for which described the history of the project, but hopefully the modding forum will suffice.
i still cannot find the post / interview i was looking for, but here is one that does talk about the engine choice and such.

I found this in a twisted python mailing list
It is listed on SF as being written in C, so I dont know why they say it is in python. Perhaps you could explain that jon? Pretty please? :)

it's fairly easy to write a python interface to a c library

Indeed, the diamond version of NWN is the package to buy, lots and lots and loads of goodies :D
