(Almost) Three Years Later: Kelsey and Solaufein origins
« on: August 18, 2004, 10:47:32 PM »
On August 20, 2001 a thread was started on Usenet's alt.games.baldurs-gate newsgroup which proved to be rather important to the way I would spend a lot of free time over the next three years, and was one of the first public mentions of the Solaufein romance as well.

Highlights include:

- An early mention of Solaufein development (post #4)
- The invitation that inspired me to start Kelsey (post #8)

Wow, I love historic documents. :D It also shows that BobTokyo has been around for quite a while.

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

Why spend all your day surfing for porn?

I haven't had this much fun since... the last time.

Yes, BobTokyo was the easter egg in that one. :)

I suppose reminiscing is one of these things that comes with old age. ;)

Aye, it caused me to reminisce about posting a similar thread topic a year earlier at Black Isle's forums, though the modding tools of the time prohibited anyone from making a proper stab at it, and I didn't care enough to try myself, what with several other things taking my time.
