    It's been a while since the last update, and I've had a number of things ready for publication for some time now... However, due to the problems caused by the server move and change of hosts, I didn't get the chance to make any updates sooner, so this one will be a bit larger content-wise than usual. I'm sure no one will mind. ;)

    Subsection Updates - Games -> Baldur's Gate

    In the Walkthroughs & Guides subsection, two updates were made. Check out the Baldur's Gate Area Guide and the Tales of the Sword Coast Area Guide, both being the latest versions.

    There is also a new addition in the Maps subsection. A fan sent in a nice pdf guide with annotated maps of all areas above ground.

    Subsection Updates - Games -> Icewind Dale

    Heart of Winter: Trials of the Luremaster, the free official addon to the expansion, has finally been released in German and Italian language as well. Get it from the Miscellanea subsection.

    Subsection Updates - Games -> Baldur's Gate 2

    After a long time, Dan Simpson's BG2 & ToB guide has been updated. Get it from the Walkthroughs & Guides subsection.

    The Tips, Tricks & Hints subsection has been updated as well. If you could use a printer-friendly list of BG2 items, this is the place to go to.

    TeamBG's The Darkest Day has finally received a patch to fix the numerous bugs, so get it from the TeamBG Tools subsection for a more enjoyable experience of this unofficial mod.

    A bunch of new additions have been made to the Editors, Hacks & Custom Characters subsection (Page 1). I split this page down even further, so that character portraits are now grouped together.

    The new additions here are: a ToB savegame and character that was sent in, a pack of The Lord of the Rings portraits, a pack of various portraits, a small collection of Forgotten Realms characters' portraits, another small pack of Playboy portraits (I was in a dilemma whether to post this one or not, but after a discussion in out chatroom I decided to do it anyway), and finally a portrait of Yoshimo as he looked in the beta of BG2 I got to play.

    There is only one new addition on Page 2 of the Editors, Hacks & Custom Characters subsection, namely ToB: The Ascension, an interesting mod by David Gaider himself.

    Subsection Updates - Games -> Pool of Radiance: RoMD

    A couple of new mods have popped up recently so I added the page with them to the Editors, Hacks & Custom Characters subsection. Load it up for more details.

    Subsection Updates -> Fantasy Books

    Two substantial updates were made here. The entire Piers Anthony books subsection is now up. By popular demand, I've also added all of the 3rd Edition D&D modules to the 3rd Edition D&D Books subsection.
    As you probably know, buying any of the items through the Amazon links or banners on SP brings in a couple of copper pieces for me (at no additional cost to yourself), so if you appreciate all the unpaid hard work that is being poured into Sorcerer's Place, keep that in mind next time you're buying something online. And, of course, I must thank all of you who have already bought anything through SP. Every bit helps...

    Subsection Updates -> Community

    I more or less rewrote the entire index of this section and the entire Chatrooms subsection. Also added were 3 new guides/tutorials related to IRC and our chatrooms. The most important new addition is the Chatroom Rules page. I ask all ops to read this over and punish accordingly anyone who fails to obey them.

    The second important page is IRC Services & Chat Commands where I gathered all of the commands related to the operation of the IRC servers our chatrooms are on, so finding out how to do something should be much easier now. (Of course this reference is huge so it may take you a while to read it through.)

    The third useful page is the Friendly Arm Inn (#sorcerers) FAQ page where I gathered some of the most commonly asked questions and answers. Pointing newbies to this is a good idea. (Heard that, operators?)

    Subsection Updates -> Fantasy Worlds

    There are some new things to check out in the Fantasy Movies subsection. Take a look at the News & Rumours page for the Lord of The Rings movie. It has been updated with some interesting new scoops and a link to the free Enya stream.
