For those seeking a deeper, longer Epic long campaign, Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is now available.

Pathfinder, as I understand is ruleset based on the Open Sourced 3.5 D&D rules, so many here will be familiar with most of it. It takes your character from 1st - 20th lvl, plus a Mythic epic lvl path. It offers more races and class & subclass options than Aenea, and that's saying something. I spent 2-3 hrs myself in the CC just looking around; developing my first character. The mechanics are not as smooth as those in Solasta, and Flight and 3rd dimensional travel are not there, but it does offer a ton of other options in abilities, feats, etc. 

As for depth, I have 50+ hrs in the game now, and have just finished Act 1. It offers both Turn based and Pause & Play action, so one may choose to mix it up as they like. The mechanics are more complex than Solasta, and a lot of features are somewhat hidden; not intuitive, but when one believes something may be missing, it oft means they have not found it yet. But I generally find the overall storytelling to be superb, and relates detailed tales for many of the characters.  

It is not an easy game to play; can be testing sometimes to wander and explore during those early levels. I yielded, and added a mod to gain lvls, as I prefer higher lvl gameplay, as many here know. But I find hours slipping by while leading a party in a march towards discovery and goals. Recommended.

Saw a twitch stream of it, I am generally not enamored with 5e because I consider some of the spell/magic changes depressingly debilitating to a fun spellcasting experience, but it Solasta looked like it could be a nice single player jaunt if I catch it on sale.
