    No, but mine *is*, specifically she is Yxunomei from IWD.
    My "temper" has nothing to do with my height, be it short or tall. And I find it insulting that you believe midgets, dwarves and short folks in general to be "bad tempered". :toofar: :nono:

    Ppfff ... :) You know very well that it was NOT that I mean, Kuemper ...

    You ARE of abrupt temper, and ANYTHING could give you that default ! ... And NOT ONLY a potential (?) midget status (contingently?) badly digested of YOU !
    — Stop to be unfair, please !
    You are not stupid, nor I am, either. :heh:

    ... Choose rather to relax, all of us, and enjoy to think to the dream of a swift travel toward the cool Inn of Feldpost, for example.
    In AD&D and / or BG games, ALL begin by an inn ... :cool:

    Let's relax on the comments about each others' tempers and whatnot, OK? Keep it on topic.

    No problem. I am glad that you already know about Silvershield too, like I expected! :grin:

    Not to mention you need to be a level 12 mage to be able to turn women into stone. :p Not an easy task!

    All in all, it could have been fun to live in Sword Coast IF I had to power to reload and try again if something unfourtunate happens. Otherwise, no, thank you. I have no desire to meet my end at the hands of <insert random monster name here> in all likelihood! Our own world may not be the safest place, but at least there are no kobolds, goblins, orcs, undead, evil wizards, ghastly dragons etc. around every corner!...

    ...or are they? What is that shadow? I think I heard a noise! :mommy:

    [​IMG] Pay attention , Sivershield, your :
    deserves a recall mention.
    I recommend you to read again the explication given to Goli Ironhead near the top of that page, of which here is an extract :
    By the way, if it's true that :
    Indeed, Silverstar, but remember that on Earth we have evil priests, contractuals cops for forbidden car-standings, mad tank-trucks with deadly fluids inside, and so on, etc, etc ! ... ;)

    :p There you go again, but I do not blame you this time, as you call me Silverstar in the end of your post. :p

    Anyway, you are right, dying countless times can drive anyone mad no matter what, in the end.

    Ha ha, yes, but I am happy (I think) in our insane World, thank you! :)

    [​IMG] Silverstar, my friend, I am in a SO great shame to be mistaken a second time about your name, :o ...

    ... that I am going to give you an exquisite and special promotion :
    after all, public names can be mutated, and then you are now upgraded to

    PLATINUMSTAR :banana: :banana: :banana:

    Note that if you prefer IRIDIUMSTAR or OSMIUMSTAR, only say it to me ! :spin:

    PS : Now, the only peril is that your old buddy with the shield gain, also, a promotion somehow, :( , but life is rarely easy ... ;)

    I would rather go to Amn with the bellydancing vampires. My bellydancer fantasies would finally come true...

    Uh thanks, Platinumstar sounds too cheesy :toofar: ...and Osmiumstar... :skeptic: I am happy with my screen name so far, oh if you do not count the occasional confusion about my gender, or sexual origins, for that matter. :hahaerr:

    [​IMG] @Cúchulainn : You don't need to go to Amn for bellydancers. We've lots of bellydancers here in Turkey! I've seen a few sexy ones on some videos from Arab countries too. :yum: :grin:

    To Elfen Lied :
    ... Yes, Elven Lied, but you don't precise how enthusiastic you were ! :) ... And also and mainly, you don't precise, neither, WHAT class you chose for your First Level Power (I recall, once more, than only Human Monoclass is permitted, since in REAL BG1 world, the skeleton of AD&D 2nd edition is taken).

    I'm not sure if I'd want to use seven years of my life... I like my family back on Earth too much for that, and I wouldn't want them to miss me. If there was a way I could communicate via some spell or another, I might consider it.

    — I thank you for vote and comment, Kitana ;) , but I note that, as usual, near-no one bother himself to READ comments and answers already inscribed HERE, into THAT topic ... :(

    ... Well, OK, there are now 6 pages of text, but IF anyone take care of read them a little, he knows quickly that a special gift is added for persons who are to sad to leave their families behind : return on Terra is only ONE MINUTE after the departure, for all those staying on earth (then, YOUR family) ... :cool:
    For YOU, you live 7 years in Sword Coast, while only one minute has elapsed for the others ...

    Ofcourse, how could I forget? Come to Turkey, if you wish to see some real bellydancers! They do not bite like those in Amn, I assure you! :D

    [​IMG] To ALL would-be "White Knights", and @ Elfen Lied : :)

    ... Be cautious at start, in REAL Sword Coast a Paladin TOO enthusiastic is quickly a DEAD paladin ; remember that it will be YOU in the armor, and that if the paladin dies, YOU die ! :sosad:
    The "Power Word, Reload" tolerance will NOT save you of the trauma and the anguish of your possible agony ... :wail:

    In a party a paladin must often be ahead, except if the current leader of your group decides an other thing ; but AHEAD don't mean TOO ahead : a yard too much, and you are surrounded by foes, then severely wounded, then ... dead.
    If 85 % of adversaries are NOT slayed by RANGE arms (bows, the slings of your friends, etc ...) when they arrive ad contact, something is ALREADY very wrong !!! ... :nolike: :(

    ALSO, remember that : fencing in championships, with a button on the point of the blade, is VERY DIFFERENT FENCING vis-a-vis the fencing IN A REAL FIGHT.
    • ... In a real fight you must be much more cautious ; because it is YOUR flesh and blood, and potentially your pain, and your LIFE.
    At times audacity must be dared, however, because a too long fight is a bad token of the final result, because of the temporary tiring and of others factors.

    At end, the Strange Mage has given you a 1rst Level Power in your chosen class, OK ; but remember occasions of training, in REAL Sword Coast, are always a godsend ! ...

    [ I HATE Elder Scrolls series, and, in particular, OBLIVION, a "Game Without Soul" :mad: , (as someone described it in a Amazon.com report) , and I regret near-every-coin I have put into this game, and into the very expensive console XBox360 ; but at least, in that soulless game, the concept of TRAINING was really dealed with care ].

    Don't NEVER miss an occasion of training in Forgotten Realms. ;) :)

    [​IMG] " Bellies beauty ", on Earth generally, and in Turkey in particular, are only exaltation of Lunar (moon) powers. :lol:

    — In Sword coast, you will see these lunars magical forces beeing incarnated in a marvellous and feerie manner in women ELVES and HALF-ELVES, both in wilderness and in inns of large towns. :love:

    • The belly-dance of a 18 charisma and 20 (or more) comeliness young elf maiden is of an unearthly beauty ... :bigeyes:
    ... And there is other strange and erotical experiences, as gorgeous feminine special slaves of djinnies, and so on ! :love: :love: :love:
