I need that Ultima/M&M/Realmz experience again... something I can truly disappear into. Something with a six person party, stats like strength and agility and constitution, magic spells and levels... you know, the whole AD&D shebang.

What are my options? Can I run anything at all like that on my MacBook?

Baldar's Gate Series
Icewind Dale
Neverwinter Nights
Avernum 1, 2, 3 & 4

I'm still waiting for something truly good like what Wizardry was, but with unlimited character advancement.

I very much enjoyed "Neverwinter 2", but my favourite games of the last year or so have been "Settlers 7 Path to the Kingdom" and "Heroes of Might & Magic V". Unfortunately, the upgrade to Mountain Lion has mucked things up. It seems every time there is a major OS update, I lose a whole lot of games. I haven't checked to see what other games won't work, but my program for making dvds playable on my dvd player has gone and so has my main protection/repair program.

But since these are the kind of games I like here's some info for lesser known game makers:

 

Slitherine has some Java based games that run on the Mac.  Turn based military strat:

I have the original Commander Europe At War which is okay but the mac support was iffy since it was a port done by Freeverse.

 

There's a Napoleon At War as well for those that like Napoleonic era.

Paradox also does mac games.  I've only played Hearts of Iron on the PC but they have a mac version.

The gaming situation IS a lot better than it was in 2006.
