    :-)

    Not surprisingly, so was *I*! ;-)

    I was rather astonished that there wasn't more generally-distributed info out there about this; I'm sure that this has been more widely observed. Don't know the ratio of "hasn't asked on a forum, but observed this" for these sorts of problems, but I'm guessing others have given up.

    So again, thanks to YOU/ "you all" for the info! :-)

    Hello there y'all!!!!. I am from deep deep south GA. Actually you can't get much deeper, lol. I live in Valdosta about 15 miles from Florida. Thankfully it has finally cooled down into the 80s here, but ya know, I may just be sitting out on the deck shirtless and in shorts on Christmas and New Year's :D That is what I did last year. I have only lived hear about 2 years so still not used to it. We moved down here from Hanover, PA. Sorry, we had to get away, no offense to people from there, but the overwhelming amount of petty people was one of our Top 3 reasons for moving away. Ok, I am glad to be part of this forum. I have hardly any knowledge about Baldurs Gate and the entire DnD series. I am just very eager and mystified about playing each game on the PC beinginning with my first 2 Baldurs Gate I-Tales of Sword Coast, and Plancescape Torment. I have no idea what Im getting into, but I want to know so baaad!! ;) y'all have a great weekend!!!!

    Welcome FlipperX. If you can hold out a few more weeks on Baldur's Gate, the Enhanced Edition is going to be released next month. It will contain some new companions, new content, visual improvements (including native support for high resolutions), numerous bug fixes, etc.

    Anyhow, around here games like BG, Torment, and Icewind Dale are much loved, and there are plenty of folks who are willing to answer questions and the like. I hope you find what you're looking for in these games, just as so many of us have. :)

    Hello everyone! You have a nice community here. I have been using this forum for a long time regarding information about the Baldur's Gate Saga. I just thought maybe I should make an account. Thanks for all the useful information! :D

    Well hello again! It is a pleasure to return to this forum, it's been so long! So many fond memories! (And I recall spending possibly too much of my time during college browsing here...)

    Welcome. I don't know too many people that disliked DA:O. Now, the second one, that's another story . . .

    Good point. Thanks!
    I am really hoping that Bioware takes DAIII back to it's roots.
    They have asked for input from us fans, and say they are taking note of it.
    ( *fingers crossed* )
    The artwork i have seen so far looks amazing.
    Just hope the characters are as intersting as the first group was, their interactions had me laughing myself silly at times.
    That is why even to this day, i still enjoy playing it.

    Greeting

    My screen name is actually one of the chief bad guys (well woman, in her case :D) of a dungeon I created for my best friend's D&D/Warhammer Quest mash up world setting. I've been hanging out at the Co8 as I've finally tried to finish 2 classic games, that being TTOEE and Baldur's Gate (these are being played off of the original disks BTW). Trust me, I WILL be looking for help so here I am! :cool:

    Greetings!

    "Well, well, well... what have we here?" :D

    Greetings to everyone here!

    I am an old school gamer and long-time lurker of your community, which, amogst the mass of sites around, I've always found to be the best!
    Alas, I never managed to take the time to get into it and subscribe until now.

    I have grown in Italy and used to work as a Programmer/Unix Sysadmin, but have recently moved to Switzerland since, sadly, the italian market is not quite at its best regarding things like.. err... being able to have and keep a job, you know.

    So, to keep my morale high while (almost) unemployed, I have decided to bring my favourite games with me and start to run through them again :p

    I am proud to say that I have played Infinity Engine games since they first came out, during high school, and still can't help but replay them over and over.

    My all time favourites (I.E. and not I.E.) are BG1/ToSC, BG2/ToB, Arcanum (as you may already have guessed), PS:T, Dragon Age: Origins, NWN1/SoU/, IWD1.

    I never was able to finish IWD2, though, for many reasons. But I will, together with NWN2 :).
    In CRPGs I am both into roleplaying and powerplaying; it depends from the run: sometimes I like to be totally into the story, other times I love to mess around acting stupid with overpowered character builds.

    I am currently doing a BG1 ----> ToB run as a Chaotic Evil Human Priest of Talos / Mage (guess the type of run :D), and it's my first time using Tutu (Kivan really has become fantastic story wise.... it is so sad...it hurts me so much that I had to randomly kill him :D).
    So far, I have completed BG1 + expansion doing almost everything except Durlag's Tower (please, forgive me) and am right at the beginning of SoA in the Unseeing Eye questline. :)

    I also am a traditional PnP player and am keeping in touch with my lifetime friends in Italy by playing DND4.0 through Skype weekly.
    I play as a Neutral lvl.11 Eladrin Mage/Shadow Assassin. :)

    Besides this I am very much into literature and for what concerns fantasy, am a fan of Tolkien since I was 12 and, recently with the HBO series, a Game of Thrones fanatic and ecently began to read the books too.

    If the length of my post already scares you, I'm sure you will be terrified when I will reveal Cyric's plans to you, last but not least the fact that I will RULE... uhm... well ... :D I think I will have fun here!

    Thanks for providing such a good community!
