Greetings and Salutations fellow RPGs and just all around cool people!

I'm going to follow on Cavanoskus footsteps and also introduce myself.

This is the first forum I've ever contributed to, so I'm breaking the shyness factor.

If there are any fellow Latin people out there. . . HOLA! and a huge hello and hug to everybody from this planet, or any other planet/dimension/state of being and unbeing in the multiverse (sorry but the hug is being psychicaly sent using state of the art inescapable hugging nodes so you're gonna get a hug whether you're the hugging kind or not. Sorry about that!)

There isn't that much to say about me, so I won't say it.

See you on the posts.

Cheers!

From South America, you say? A board can never have enough of those. Also, your grammar seems very good. Which is even better!

EDIT: There's one thing I wonder. Have you been lurking here before this, or?

Are you a hot latino chick, or a not-hot latingo guy?

Just as a warning, you have probably been permanently dubbed "BSC" already.

You appear to be familiar with most Spiderweb games, and you make sense when you post. This puts you far ahead of the majority of newbies and already makes you good in my opinion.

And now, my question that I pose to all newbies who seem worthy of noticing: which SW games have you played (by which I mean registered and finished)?

Welcome, and don't become a 5-post nonentity, the fate that awaits most newbies.

Hey!

I've been lurking a bit. Trying to get a taste for what the whole forum scene was like. Felt kinda weird, like some sort of voyeur. Well, no more of that.

Definitely a NOT-hot latino guy.

I've played all of the Siperwed(b) games since Exile 1 on Mac (now on PCs.)
Favorite? Er. . . all. I have a soft spot for Nethergate. In part because it allowed you to play two completely different games in one, the dynamics between the two groups were very different, and I also enjoyed the historic aspect of it.

How about you guys?

Well, you have the 5 posts, already. Don't stop posting now! IMAGE(biggrin0.gif)

I've played all of the games as well, but only those that were ported to PC... I liked the interface of Geneforge best, but I hugely preferred the plot of Avernum/Exile 3 (where Exile is imho better, but Avernum is easier to handle because of its interface). Exile 3 is actually the first game I played, after finding it on a shareware CD.

I am, in fact, a 600-post newbie.

I started playing SW games, uh, shortly after Avernum 1 came out. Then I played Avernum 2, Nethergate, a bit of Blades of Exile, Avernum 3, Geneforge 1, Geneforge 2, in something approaching that order. Then, about four months ago, I made the crazy decision to register for these boards and have apparently been spamming like a wild man ever since. (600 posts? Last time I checked, I had 300-something!)

I suppose I should've just asked, have you played Blades (either one)? And if so, allow me to refer you to the Lyceum, home of all things Blades.

EDIT: Dear lord, my 666th post. No good can come of this.

Kelandon is the devil, of course.

Hi. I'm a moderator here. I also don't talk much, especially in the middle of the night. Enjoy your stay, may it be long, fun, and productive.

Hey!

I played Blades of Exile years ago when it first came out, when was that. . . 1999? I played a few of the scenarios, enjoyed them immensely and then I got sidetracked with some real-world silliness and haven't played any more. I've been thinking about registering for that one since I last time I checked there were a bunch of scenarios.

I like BoA so far. But from what I've read the editor seems to have rub some the wrong way. But I hope in the future there will be more adventures. I've tried to use it, but I'm gonna have to wait a bit until the real world gives me more free time.

I've read about The Lyceum and will definitely check it out.

I agree with the distinction between Geneforge and Exile/Avernum. One of my very small complaints about Geneforge (and it is very, very small) is that the storyline wasn't bigger. But that comes mostly from my desire to see more of the Shaper's world. Saying that, though, I enjoyed the choices you could make regarding the different factions (servile or not) and how those choices influenced the game. In the end the game turns out rather solid. It's nice how the "weakness" of size in a way strenghtened the story.

BTW, as a completely out of the blue comment: it's nice to see that games like these have so many supporters. I grew up with text adventures and the early CRPGs (Wizardry, Ultima, et al) and sometimes I shudder when I see that so many of the modern games have too much razzle-dazzle and too little storyline.

Cheers!

Some rudimentary background information would do Geneforge good. But try asking Jeff for that.

This is indeed a one-word post. This sentence exists simply to cover up the fact that my signature is longer than my post. It hasn't succeeded, but oh well. I hope you enjoy your stay.

Mornin', I'm me as is clearly marked.

Welcome to the boards. I'm shocked and surprised that no-one has used the official welcome yet. So I'm going to give it a shot and see if I remember it correctly:

Welcome to Spiderweb. Leave your sanity at the door.

We are now taking bets on whether he will stay or just say hello and lurk forever/leave. Most members should know the odds by now.

Hello, I am one of the many, many resident perverts of this forum. Leave your mangoes at the door.

Ooooh! Bets! Maybe I can create a bunch of different names, and try to manipulate the bets one way or the other and make tons and tons of some kind of currency. Only if they involve money. Maybe they involve beans or something like goats, then I end up with millions of goat and no pocket dimension in which to squeeze them in. Now, boiled cabbages would be nice.

Hmmm. . . boiled cabbages. . .

If you're using Mozilla, you can actually see the note symbols instead of blocks. They don't show up very well in IE for some reason.

Welcome, Samurai. It's always nice to see a comprehensible newbie or a foreigner with almost perfect grammar and spelling; both in one is even better. I'm Sir David, SD, whatever, but you probably knew that already. And by all means, take your mangoes with you - if you leave them by the dorr, they won't be there when you come back.

<brings juicy mango> Hola Samurai!
SW is also my first forum and I never would contribute to another board because I stick on Spiderweb.
IMAGE(wink0000.gif) so take that as a warning. If you don't stop immediately to post here, you get addicted.

¡Bienvenido a Spiderweb! Tenga miedo. Tenga mucho miedo. Es bueno que su inglés es mejor que mi español, porque mi español es peor que las mentes de unas personas aquí. Aprenderá quienes son bastante pronto.

Todos tienen apodos, y no es tan fácil reconocerlos. Miembro 3608 es TGM (The Great Mister), miembro 66 es Arctic o Arctic Wolf, miembro 3151 es Alec, y miembro 4 es TM (Terror's Martyr).
