    [​IMG] Hi Rick,

    you should post about it in our ToB forum (assuming you've got it installed) or SoA, if you'll be playing BG2 without the expansion installed. Welcome aboard!

    Hello there,

    is there any way to donate money to unlock the advanced user options? I tried the PayPal button, but it didn't seem to create any link to my account here at PayPal.

    Hey,

    we're a bit less automated here than the Codex, it's a manual process. If you donate, I send the SPS account setup info to your PayPal e-mail. ;) You'll find more info about it here: http://www.sorcerers.net/Supporters/faq.php

    Which advanced user options did you mean, though? Most of them are available to all users, actually.

    Hi everyone.

    I'm Michael Hartman, founded of the game developer Frogdice.

    I found your site when someone supported our game, Dungeon of Elements, on Kickstarter. He said he learned about it here on your site. :)

    Thanks so much for writing about it.

    New... but open to the receptive among us.

    I've been reading a lot of forums and this is the first I decided to post in.

    I noticed the newest join-ee was 2005 to this post... is this an omen to Diomen!:confused: Is this like my life?... let's say my life is a mystery for lack of a better term.

    You are expecting a get to know me post, which I will eventually provide in full... hopefully in time!

    Well for starters; I don't want to bore you like I do my son or daughter, which are definitely not the receptive among us! Very impatient!

    I been through most of this life in the temporal, yes; the temporal and am expecting the next journey in life's destiny, which we control more than you like to admit... much to the chagrin of many!

    I will be 67 and a newbie to this game IWD, yah I know this and a few other acronyms but there are so many that I do not know! This game IWD, is I guess my son's way of bringing commonality to our lives and I admit... I like the game, what I have read of it in preparing to play the game.

    Look for now, I will be 67 in September and believe me... you don't want to know my birth date:hbd: yah right! It's something I even don't want to remember but it's part of my life!:wail::wail:

    I like computers and the computer world I live in but it is fast, furious and very unforgiving for those that are slower to grasp these fast moving technologies of today. No excuse just reality!

    There will be those that say... get lost but I am looking for those that are the receptive among us... the good Samaritan's among the many, you might say to lend a helping hand... so that one day you will be provided the same... it comes so much quicker than you will ever want!:eek:

    Any takers in this forum to lend a help hand? I do believe I'm getting the hang of this forum!:D

    @Diomen

    Welcome to the asylum. ;) actually it isn't that bad. The people here are very receptive to new comers and are great about lending a helping hand. I recently got ahold of IWD 1 and IWD 2 with their expansions and found this place looking for insight into the game that I haven't played in a long time. I am sure that you will find what you are looking for here and if you can't find it right away don't feel scared to ask questions.

    I will do what I can to help you, all you need to do is ask and I will do my best.

    Again, welcome here.

    Well, I had made a account a long time ago to get a question answered about a certain scenario in Icewind Dale II. Now after reading through some of the forums, (recently had another question) I realize this is a wonderful community that I'd like to make myself part of. HELLOOOOOOOOOO AAAALLLL!

    Hiya!

    Hello, :wave:

    I am a Baldurs Gate, Icewind Dale and Neverwinter Nights fan.
    This certainly looks like the place to hang out. I expect I'll be coming back.

    :wave:

    Hi everyone!

    I'm a long time RPG player, and actually joined this forum back in 2002 apparently, looking for a CD/DVD cover to print for my copy of Baldur's Gate or Icewind Dale or something, which came in a cardboard folded cd-thingy here. I wanted a proper cd case.
    Just got an automated email congratulating me on my birthday, and I was thinking: Boards o' Magic? hmmm... Let's check it out.

    Better late than never eh? :D

    Anyway, I love RPG's, but never really got around to actually playing far into Baldur's Gate, I don't own BG2, I did play NWN1 with a friend co-op, never owned 2, played a bit of IWD. Love them all though.
    I'm actually hoping a big collection pack of all remastered games will come out on Steam, so I can grab them all in one deal with all the expansions. I read BG1 was recently rereleased for modern pc's.
    I've also read the Legend of Drizzt books, and I love the whole Faerûn world and lore.
    I currently play Skyrim. I love open world RPG's. I also like playing tabletop RPG's (mostly HeroQuest though, a simple dungeon crawler) with miniatures, and painting them ;)

    if you click on the gog.com link at the top of any page here they have a sale going on for BG 1&2, IWD 1&2, NWN 1&2, and 4 other old time RPG's in one bundle for another 16 hours for a total of about $22.00 when if you buy them separately they run about $106.00. not sure if you are interested in that but if you go there from here and purchase them SP also gets some credit for it.

    Just thought you might like this info.
