    From the conversations on the boards lately, it is obvious that we are an eclectic bunch of internationally scattered nomads. I've been curious what drew everyone to this Forum in particular?

    Personally - I watched the roll-out of BG w/ much anticipation, but when it was released I was working two jobs and had no cash or time. A friend of mine bought it instead and found this site because "it had the best cheats". By the time BG2 came out, I was able to pickup a copy and he forwarded me this link so that I could download Shadow Keeper (sorry all you purists! the dark side drew me here! ;) )

    The site content caught my eye and I stumbled upon the Forums. The rest is history!

    I was hanging at EFnet when I started playing Baldur's Gate. The people on #baldursgate told me to go to #sorcerers to get some answers on some questions, and so I started hanging there. Sorcerer's Place was less developed back then, but then the whole appearance was changed and I think the forums were added and so I started here. As you can see I have been registered for some time.

    [​IMG] To meet women! :D Just kidding.

    Actually, I had a question about Baldur's Gate and I stumbled onto this site accidentally. I didn't really come back until IWD came out...And I got caught up in the message boards.

    Now, when I log onto my pc, my browser goes right to SP...Scary, huh?

    I discovered sorcerers because of the IWD solution. When bg2 was coming, I started paying attention to the boards, and soon after I joined.

    I did a search because I was getting the crap kicked out of me. I was playing on insane and didn't realize there was anything easier. I had even put the game away for about six months because it pissed me off so bad.

    I saw this on a site with the Top BG-sites. I was stuck somewhere in the game but had some knowledge of other parts of the game so I wanted other people help me with my problems and I wanted to help also other people with their problems. I found out this to be very interesting so while at work a finally got something to do!

    I have friends who have been playing these types of games for a long time. I got into playing the computer generated games through their influence.

    I had some questions about a problem that neither one of them had an answer to and they told me that if I came here that someone might be able to answer the questions I had.

    I needed Portraits. I was tired of the same old ones. So I made a search and ended up at Not exactly "stoneLabour" But the forbidden site a'hem ********* (the # of letters should be correct :)) This wasn't satisfactory. phewww. Lucky me for TAL's retaliations.

    A friend of mine Told me to go to this place. I did. A few days later I was looking around and found this FORUM. I shouldn't have made that mouse click that registered me, been here ever since.

    I actually dont remember, but I tihnk I found the page on some top10 BG sites list. Then when I got bored of the game, I checked the forum, and didn't really get out again =).
    Then there was some post about the chat, and I stuck in there, way to much for my own good I think, oh well, I guess I'll live :D

    What? Nobody admits to coming in here just to annoy people? :p

    Seriously though, I came to know Tal when he was still on EFnet and his page looked totally different and there was just #baldursgate. I came there to ask where I could find a specific tavern in BG, then I just returned there. He then changed the page, started the messageboard, persuaded me to register on it etc. I did, but I haven't been very active though.

    Oh how it warms my heart to know some of you arrived because of the Icewind Dale Online Solution that I had forged over for many weeks. The love that one can feel coming forth from your very hearts touches me to the point that I shed a tear in utter happiness! Oh pray tell those earlier days, in ages past when the frozen north took me on an adventure for fortune and fame.

    What is it that has made the snow melt as such and cause such distress in a wonderful game? Oh how the time of ages come and go and memories are replaced with the new only to be remembered again by others who made their way here because of me.

    Raise thy mug of ale high and make a cheer!
