Hmmm... why not, I'll introduce myself.

My name's Dave and I've been using the name Grim Squeaker for forums etc for quite a while now (although I use Phantom as a callsign in games coz Grim Squeaker isn't very menacing!).  I'm 18 and live in Hertfordshire, England when I'm not at uni (University of Edinburgh).  My photo is in the PPG gallery if you want to take a look...

My favourite books are probably Lord of the Rings and Anne Rice's Tale of the Body Thief.  Some of my favourite films are Empire Strikes Back, The Matrix, Terminator 2, Shawshank Redemption.  My favourite modern music includes stuff by Kane, Meat Loaf, Evanescence, Linkin Park, Cranberries, the Rat Pack, Queen and many more.  My favourite pieces of classical music include Barber's Adagio for Strings and Saint-SaŽns Danse Macabre. 

Modding wise I'm working on far too many projects.  Over at FW I have an NPC project called Harvey, who is in beta testing at the moment.  My other mods are at Gibberlings Three.  I'm the kind of incharge type personm coder and writer for some stuff for the Tiefling Sisters project with Dancer Fitz and BevH.  I'm the coder for the Viconia Relationship, which is being writen by Zandilar.  I have an ongoing project called Banter Packs: Part Deux, which is designed to add material between non-Bioware NPCs.  I also have another SEKRIT PROJEKT that will be revealed when its done...

I have completed two mini mods: sporeboy!'s Alternate Portrait Pack, which allows you to use sporeboy!'s fantastic portraits in your game of BG2.  I also created a Blonde Imoen mod, which basically does what it says...  I did also make an entry for the 2nd Iron modder competiton but its still not online coz its got big bugs in it...

Heya!

I wander from the part of Russia known as Finland. 25(ish) years has passed since I was spawned on this blue ball of ours and good deal of that time Ive been playing with electronic games. BG is my weak spot since I seem to gravitate to it on a regular basis. And BG2 is which lured me to lurk here.

On other entertainment I am somewhat of a movie freak, especially anything sci-fi related make my heart go boom. Same goes for literature, exception on that being Pratchett, the man is a genious.

So, heya to yall..

Hello all. I'm realtively new here, as you may have noticed. Drow by parentage.. presumably. But, as of now, in Human British female form. A sucker for Hammer horror house, role playing, and lord of the rings, both books and films, Buffy the vampire slayer, and rock music; mainly Led Zep, Queen, The pistols, the x-ray spex, the ramones. As of Gatesy opinions:
Favourite Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
Race: Half elf
Class: Fighter/Mage
Favourite NPC's: Edwin.. might I request a romance  ;)?
Lest Favourite: Immy and Aerie. Can't stand the constant whining and rubbishy accents... I'm sure the spider pits of Lolth could devise exquisite torture for them.. :D And Valygar Corthala - with the portrait, I thought he might be pretty cool.. but the whole 'I'm glad you found meh whan you did, thish group dush good thangs.' Quickly tested my nerves.. Tolgerias...*ahem* I beleive a reward is in order..
For Lolth.

*Waves from her lurker corner*

I'm Silence.. the ultimate Lurker Goddess..† I lurk.. I read.. I download.. I drool..

I absolutely love the mods and wish I could do the hard work you mod makers manage to do.

You OWN.

I would worship the lot of you, except that would require sacrifices and all that.. and those stains are such a pain to remove..

My first mod I ever downloaded was Kelsey.. which I loved.. until I kinda got creeped out about how much he was like my then ex.. rofl..

Nothing but love for all of you!

Unless you try to steal my sugar.. then I'll have to get nasty.

I suppose that I should introduce myself to those that don't know me.   I am Cuv... that is short for Cuvieronius.  Which is short for Cuvieronius tropicus    .... it's a neotropical Gomphothere that inhabited North and Central American about 30,000 years ago ;)

I mod,  love making new areas for BG2/ToB.   Worked on Ascension, stay generally quiet most of the time.  Been working on RTW for the last (gasp!) three years  ???     I collect old dead things (fossils) ... lived in Texas the last 5 years, but back in California now.   I mostly lurk, but will speak up with help on modding or editing.

Hi my name is jester......and I surf. :(

... and I surf too... everyday unless its too blown out.

Yello...

I believe I am officially a 'caught lurker,' and everyone knows that when you catch a lurk creature, it's required to introduce itself and stop being shy.

So I'm Stoplight, although if you saw me on the street, Jessie would probably elicit a less confused look. You would see me on the street if you visited Washington state. As confessed over at the Chosen of Mystra board, (where I was caught, courtesy of Jcompton... should have seen my face turn red...) I am thoroughly intimidated by Pocket Plane, simply because of the incredible talent hovering around here. It makes me all goosebumpy. I'll get over it, though. Really. Truly. Not looking for shadows, honest.

75% of my hard drive is currently occupied with BG:SOA and modules, and the rest is full of my half-baked novels. I think that about covers it for now. ;-)
<StoplightRed> right, right. but see, most of my friends really aren't bastards.

I guess i'll do this business.

I had actually posted a tiny bit on the old FW boards in December/January-ish but surely nothing anyone would remember. I won't explain my username except to say it was given to me by my friends. You can call me by it or Julie. Speaking of my friends, I have none who enjoy computer games. :'( I'll play pretty much anything except first person shooters as I suck at them. First electonic games I ever played, probably Duck Hunt, that first Mario game, and M.U.L.E. I still adore M.U.L.E. First computer game had something to do with the San Diego zoo. I plan to be a Director/Rockstar primarily with a side of Producer/Magazine Founder/Club Owner/Musicfest Chairman (the name of the festival is strictly confidential). We'll see how that goes. Anyway, Pirates are my favorite, and my aforementioned friends call me a pirate because i'm Irish. Ninjas are okay too. I'm from Montana (just like... nobody else) but I live in Texas. Alack, I am only 18 (until July 28!) Maybe one day i'll mod... :-X

Well I suppose it is only fitting that I make my first post here at the Pocket Plane on this thread...

I am Kristophe - which is actually the German version of my real name "Christopher"...I won't comment about "ageless gamers", other than to say I remember when there were no computers...and television was the newest technological marvel *chuckles*  And while I never played M.U.L.E., my first computer game was Zork - played on an old Apple (we won't mention my other favorite of that time period, "Leather Goddesses of Phobos").  Quite naturally, my absolute, all-time favorite genre of computer games is the RPG  :)

I'm a retired former Navyman, and living the hard life along the Outer Banks of NC - meaning I spend some little part of my time in or around the surf enjoying the summertime "beach scenery".  *chuckles again*  I also surf around the internet a bit - always on the lookout for new and interesting items to write about (oh - I rather guess I forgot to mention I spend some of my time as an online Gaming Reporter/Editor).  BTW - I've been having the pleasure of playing many of your completed mods (and the ssoundsets, NPC flirt & banter packs, etc)...and am looking forward to playing some of the projusect presently in their respective working stages...I'd also volunteer to help out the ladies Kismet & St. Josephine with their search for a Male Actor - but I am afraid I have no ancestors that were, in any way/shape/or form...an Elf!!

Woah, So glad I found this site, there's some great mods here. I'm Noodle, ** years old, from the UK. Long-time BG fan. I mainly hang out on the UK PCGamer forums, where we have had about 3/4 200-page threads on General BG randomness.

Hey y'all --

Real name's Russ, a freelance journalist based in North Carolina. Also a recovering Powergamer, long time lurker who finally decided to show himself today.

Kelsey was my first mod, and with so many subsequnt mods my BG2 folder takes up an obscene amount of space; I've learned enough modding to tweak my own games, and once I commit to learning how to write dialouge I'll try making a few of my own. For now, I'm in the research stage, determined to make druids kick as much ass as I know they can, and establish that the Druid Grove's a cool place to hang after all.

I mainly write about regional music and the health care industry (I'm a gemini -- I have no other defense); before that, I used to be a pretty damn good tenor before ciggies and stress took their merciless toll. My dad comes from tobacco fields, my mom from a SC-based plantation, and I spent some time in England singing when I was younger (25 now), which turned my vocabulary (not my accent) into this strange Southern American-Anglophile hybrid and the reason no one knows where I'm from when I'm on message boards.

Aside from this, I spend most of my time writing, check out modding sites when I'm waiting for phone calls, and squeeze in working out, meditating and paying the bills somewhere in between.

It's nice to be here.

Hello, everyone!

I am Lyn, the (somewhat new) lurker. I lurk. It's fun.

And, once in a while, I actually get up the nerve to post something.

I don't think I have actually managed to post anything yet. Ah, well. Better finish this quickly, before I lose the nerve.

Anyway. I'm somewhat new to the whole world of BG2 mods - I only learned what they were about eight months ago. And I've been playing the BG series for... *thinks hard* Possibly two years?

So yeah. I'm new. Meaning, I haven't managed to get past Chapter 4 in a non-cheating game - if only because I don't have the patience for it.

But anyway. I think I'll return to lurking, obsessing over Kelsey, and playing Baldur's Gate 2: Shadows of Amn.

I am mostly lurking around here, since I just don't have time to be active on all of the boards...

My RL name is Johanna, I live in Finland and am 35 y/o. I have played RPG since I was 20, and I wish I had had knowledge of them earlier, since I would have had more fun as teenager if I had been able to play them at that time ;)

I too remember the time before computers, and when the television was black&white (or different shades of gray). I had my first computer about 6-7 years ago, and first computer game about 5 years ago (it was Riven btw) - though there was some games with the first Mac, like Descent 1 and Full Throttle... yesh. I use MacIntosh instead of PC, and since it is harder to get decent games for Macs, I don't have that many of them.

When I am not sitting at my computer, I am either sleeping ;D or taking care of my five dogs and occasional other animals that inhabit our household. I also have a husband, whom I have managed to transfer into a soon to become modder, I think... Oh and I have an npc mod for BGII under development, don't expect it to be published soon, though.
Yes, it is possible to kill the chickens!
