    I'm new. Just joined. I've bought literally every one of these games from GoG, but I also owned many of them from back in the day (and have them on CD and / or DVD).

    Also a HUUUUGE fan of the original AD&D Gold Box Series games... is there a dedicated forum for those?

    I haven't really had time to play any of the games like Baulder's Gate, and / or Neverwinter Nights, but I bought them!

    Anyway, just wanted to introduce myself... I'm a Gen-Xer... played AD&D a lot when I was in middle school, and just started up again with some friends over Skype.

    --

    Also... any idea how to change my avatar? Thanks!!!

    Or you could contribute to the site in a non-monetary way as well. It should all be spelled out.

    I went ahead and donated with PayPal.

    I wish... SOOO wish I had the time to play them all. But I'm still buying them just so I know I have them. I NEED to finish the Gold Box Series games first, and then some of the older games I have. But I'm really, really looking forward to Baulders Gate and Neverwinter Nights!

    Haha, sorry.

    They have literally all of them on GoG! I flag everything that has Dungeons & Dragons on GoG, and when the price drops... I buy on the spot.

    So many AD&D games, so few years...

    Seriously... I would. I'd want nothing more than to be locked away in a computer room with an IV and all the AD&D games back to back.

    Your avatar looks like Raistlin from the Dragon Lance Chronicles...

    Any idea how I can change my avatar? The big green question mark just isn't cutting it for me. I haven't found a way to do it anywhere in Preferences, User Profile, or anything like that.

    Thanks!

    You can't. Either it's the gems or you will be presented with a set of choices from which to choose.

    Taluntain can do it. There is a thread in the SPS private forum
    https://sorcerers.net/community/forums/sps-private-forum.35/
    that is open only to SPS account holders about the how-to. That’s how I got my Dragon.
