    Hello everybody! Just joined Sorcerers in the hopes of getting some help with mod installation and stuff for Baldur's Gate (I and II). You all seem a rather friendly bunch, it must be said. :) I think I shall fit in well here, being a pretty dedicated D&D and CRPG nerd!

    Often it is easier to just ask and suffer a bit of fall-out.

    Hi there. Not sure if there are many that will remember me, as it's been quite a few years since I've poked my head in. Back in the days when BG II and NWN were still recent releases. Thought I would put my hand up and say "Hi". It's good to visit the place and see some familiar faces.

    Yeah, often the 'I'm a newbie and I have a question about Baldur's Gate [or any other game]'-post is the first post on this and other D&D-fora, and usually the question is 'what mods should I use' :D. I still remember you coming in, if I remember well it was that kind of post. Doesn't matter, it's what we're here for! :)
