    Great idea. All those Hello threads get a bit repetitive after a while. Too many Wavy icons in one place.

    Hey all you new SPers, we're recruiting for people in the Role Playing forum as well. Stop by and check out some of the RPs going on, we always need new blood.

    Read some of the summaries, think up a character and jump in. If you were a PnP D&Der of old, like me, and miss the interaction that CRPGs just can't have, or if you've never experienced that, come on over.

    Or start up a new one. I never can seem to get enough of that fix. :beer:

    Welcome, welcome, welcome :wave: .

    This reminds me, I never properly introduced myself :rolleyes:
    Well in any case, a big hello to all intelligent life out there and for everyone else, the trick is to bang the rocks together. ;) :wave:

    It's not obligatory, so it's not really an issue if you haven't.

    [​IMG] Info on getting an avatar can be found here, in the very fine SP FAQ [edit - well it will be fine again on the new boards when we get to it/dmc]. It might be an idea to familiarise yourself with its contents, as asking too many questions the answers to which can be found therein can lead to acquiring a somewhat less... prestigious identifier... ;)

    Donate something to SP, either a guide or a mod or money. :money: is good as it helps keep the Board afloat. :) Don't forget to read the welcome PM and the faq, both should answer most of your questions.

    :wave: Yes, I'm a follower.

    Welcome JiggaJay. :wave:

    Edit: I didn't introduce myself either when I first joined. Laid low for the first year. I was scared of the 'kids' but they are a pretty nice group.

    I don't think I ever introduced myself either. So for all of you who complain that I don't wave enough... :wave:

    (Hmmm, had to go and look up what the code was for the icon!)

    A nice welcome to all, new or not. I have some nice hot coffee here as a welcoming present! :coffee: (And tea for you odd Europeans)

    I didn't introduce myself neither, but didn't feel like I needed to. I was quite sure people would be curious enough when they saw some new guy they didn't know posting the news :hahaerr: . So yeah, I'm Eldular and I'm an aspiring alcoholic :shake: .

    [​IMG] Today, after two years of lurking, I have finally decided to step out of shadows and introduce myself to this wonderful community.

    First of all, I'm a hard core fan of the Infinity Engine CRPGs, especially the Baldur's Gate series, which I've completed fourteen times (or was it fifteen? I can't remember. :p ). Over the past few years I've been playing mostly MMORPGs, although I still occasionally play Baldur's Gate II, the greatest game ever made.

    There are also many other things that I enjoy, such as music, tasty food and good company.

    Well, that's enough for now! If there's something you want to know, just ask! Oh, and don't worry: I've read the rules and seen the FAQ. :)

    Last but certainly not least, English is my third language so be merciful. :o
