    Hello, my name is SIMON and just got some old games back up and running. I come from old school 8th addition and love creating modules. Current game I just got running BG2 SOA and thx to admins here for posting patches and good portraits. Hope to get together with a party sometime soon. I have had NWN 2 but CDs were scratched too bad I do believe I have the old Bio Manual. Thx for letting me on and if I somehow misplace my tome I'm sure you'll help me. Signed=Wizard Needs Food Badly! ( :

    Hi, y'all. Elder gamer here, started in '94 on an apple II, got hooked on BG early on, spend way too much time gaming when I should be writing my memoirs in the music business (classical, rock 'n roll). These type games fit my ADHD perfectly. Later...

    I take it the Apple II was second hand or hand-me-down? By '94 Apple II software was almost completely gone from stores to my frustration since my dad was out of work and I was stuck with an Apple IIGS as my only computer that I'd had since 1988. Well, technically it was still the "family computer". At least until the next year when they got internet at school and the library and I discovered ftp://ftp.apple.asimov.net .

    Well life has a way of interrupting fun stuff. I've been so busy with teen brunos that I haven't been able to contribute.

    Hello, I just joined this forum and this is my first posting. Greetings! For consistency, I'm using the same moniker I've employed elsewhere. I'm mostly into modding NWN2, but I also enjoy a lot of games; particularly of the tactical cRPG variety. As a recent retiree, I've played most of the RPG classics, from the Gold Box series through BG, IWD, DD, DA:O, NWN1/2, EldScr, PoE1&2, and so forth. Hopefully this site is more RPGWatch-like with less of the rpgcodex brand of toxicity. We'll see how it goes.

    Welcome rjshae.

    I know things have slowed down over the years. I myself yearn for the early years when we actually talked about the games themselves a lot. Every poster who joins and contributes can help make a difference, so the door is definitely open. :)

    A NWN2 modder? Cool. I haven't played in a while. I used to play on online servers a dozen or more years ago. I wish I could get some of those early costumes/creature armors back for solo play. I had a Drow Bard with Erinyes armor and sword I wish I'd saved a local copy of. And a high dexterity Weapon Master that I had a funky dancer costume for.

    There's fair amount of mods available for NWN2. I don't remember Erinyes armor for PCs though. Maybe it was in the Sexy OC?

    From what I remember it was Monster armor that the person who built the server had figured out how to open for player use. The Sword too. The dancer costume was something from another server. Unfortunately this was like a decade and a half ago and those servers where long gone when I checked last so there is nobody for me to ask. (Maybe we should take this to PM so as not to bother everyone else.)
