    *waves* Guess who's finally gotten around to playing dragon age and therefore inevitably ended up shuffling back here? :D

    Dragon Age Origins was a great game, to be sure. Hope you enjoy it.

    icewind dale

    i am no mathemetician, i am a history teacher, and can answer most questions about how to beat icewind dale... before i can answer any questions, i have been assigned the task of creating 10 posts... not sure why, but this is #1

    ---------- Added 0 hours, 4 minutes and 47 seconds later... ----------

    mandatory post #2

    ---------- Added 0 hours, 1 minutes and 14 seconds later... ----------

    i have read about many of your struggles with icewind dale, but have to filabuster 8 more posts before i can help

    ---------- Added 0 hours, 1 minutes and 44 seconds later... ----------

    okay...7

    ---------- Added 0 hours, 1 minutes and 48 seconds later... ----------

    six

    ---------- Added 0 hours, 0 minutes and 59 seconds later... ----------

    now that i'm down to 5, are there any old-school icewind dale gamers still around?

    ---------- Added 0 hours, 2 minutes and 26 seconds later... ----------

    as silly as this is to read, it's even sillier to type...but i understand that in order to comment on game posts, i first have to make ten posts

    ---------- Added 0 hours, 0 minutes and 32 seconds later... ----------

    almost there

    ---------- Added 0 hours, 2 minutes and 32 seconds later... ----------

    i know icewind dale has been criticized for its graphics...and rightfully so...but i have found the gameplay among the best i have seen... i bought into the neverwinter night set with great hope...and the graphics were obviously better, but something was lost.

    ---------- Added 0 hours, 0 minutes and 43 seconds later... ----------

    one more to go

    ---------- Added 0 hours, 0 minutes and 52 seconds later... ----------

    and now (hopefully), i can help people walk through icewind dale

    hmmm ... one post ... maybe you should have taken some math. Kidding aside, welcome to the boards.

    You can post to any forum without the 10 post requirement (it would be rather pointless to require 10 posts to make a post ... we're not the US government) -- I thought the 10 post requirement was for new threads, but I'm not sure.

    scion... we can all see ALL of your posts. The requirement to make 10 posts is before you can post on people's PROFILES (this is to prevent stealth profile spam). It would be kind of weird to require you to make 10 posts in threads before you could post in threads, non? :shake:

    A rather bizarre first post... but I suppose some points for effort should be awarded. :p

    10 posts

    i appreciate it - i was unclear as to the posting rules, and it looked like i had to post 10 of my own before i could help answer questions...but i DID have some helpful info to offer on icewind dale... so i was motivated by good intentions.

    Hello!
    I say a big hell to all of you :)

    Now I get started with a ranger. Then I'd like to continue with assasin.
    Anyone knows, is good to start with ranger, if I 'd like to specialize it for assasin?

    Thx

    Welcome Ancalion. A big hell to you too. :D

    It might help if you shared the name of the game you're playing.

    I'm not sure whether I was more amused more by being told to go to the "big hell" or that "ass a sin" ... it certainly is a weakness, but not a sin in my point of view.

    Thanks; Glad to Be Here....

    Glad to be here; thanks for having me.

    I'm a long-time player of CRPGs (among other games), have been playing them since Telengard [C64] { http://www.mobygames.com/game/c64/telengard }.

    Does this forum have anything much to do with retro CRPGs?

    Hah, well, technically all the IE games are quite retro by now. The original BG was released in 1998, so 16 years ago... but we've got quite a few members who've played games even older than that. You'll find threads about older games in The Playground forum, if we don't have a dedicated forum for them.

    All is well, I've just been crazy busy. I've had four different employers in the past 18 months, and believe me that wasn't by design.
