Today, I actually met another kid who had played a Spiderweb Software game. (Exile 3) This was pretty incredible, since my school only has 500 kids in it.
Does anyone else know fellow Spidweb players at work or school?

Well I influenced 4 of my friends to play Spid web games and 2 of them have registered at least one of the games. But I haven't met anyone that had played any games on here without me telling them about it.

Legends tell that Avernum,
Is a gateway to the underworld,
from which the dead never return,
Well thats a lie because im here now aren't I.

Um, Obi-Two Kenobi, and some others...

many others...

They basically know about SpidWeb because I told them about it, that's all.

Yup. By sheer, blind coincidence, my best friend's favourite game is Exile II.

...Alec should probably not count in this instance?

My answer would be yes, although that's just because I pirated^H^H^H^H^convinced some of my friends to make a purchase.

You haven't done nothin'.

No. None of my close friends are much into gaming, interestingly enough. We'll play console stuff like Smash Bros. when we're together, but never any computer games, really.

I know a few people who play Spiderweb games. In fact, the first time I heard about the games was from a friend, although I didn't really pay attention until I stumbled across them a month or two later.

—Alorael, who has had little luck convincing friends to even try Spiderweb games, let alone enjoy them. He's managed to create a few addicts, but most people can't get past the first 2D, low resolution sprites.

I met someone on another site who plays Exile, but other than that, I haven't met anyone who knows about Spiderweb Software besides the people I've introduced the games to.

I knew someone else who liked Exile I, and I convinced him to get BoE and join the Arena.

My crusade has been in vain. All my friends laugh at my attempts to convert them. And then they play flashy and stylish FPS games. Oh well.

I was introduced to the games by a friend and a couple of other friends have played the Avernum games.

Let the good times roll again

Bladesman Wasazore, about your sig. I've heard that song before, it was on one of those big old records round my mates house. How'd you know about it?

-- You know who this is, who for some reason likes the way Alorael speaks like this at the end of each of his posts.

Copying Alorael's signature tends to greatly increase your chances of being sniped.

I recently discovered that a new member of these boards lives within a mile or two of me. But I have not met in person any Spiderweb game players.

I had a dream the other night that I met some people from these boards in person... TM had a goatee... I don't think it's a good sign. Freud help me.

Anyway, I've had similar luck trying to convince my friends how awesome SW games are. 1 actually quasi-enjoyed GF2, but not enough to buy it. Most of my friends are into Halo and GTA.

Anyone else in Upstate NY? I think of Wizard and Motrax and close, and both are hours away from me.

Yeah, I was kinda surprised when I first joined the boards that no one else was from New York City... But I guess upstate is pretty close. Where is Motrax from?
