For those of you who weren't at the chat last night I mentioned that I working on a 1/10 to honor the more interesting events/things from the BoE era.

Specifically I will have towns and people to represent/talk about these things as well a plot (vacation on Exile Island. THE adventurer getaway) to tie them together and explain why your party is there. Currently I trying to compile a list of characters and notable things about those people. Please help by adding your comment, people, memories.

I hope to see it in the 1/10 contest. May the old days of BoE be remembered always!

(Also, you're forgetting Drizzt. He was pretty important too.)

Also, I think your outdoor section should be called "The Lyceum." Although it still exists today, back then it was the staple board of BoE. Right now, the only forums there that have any real activity are the CSR forums.

Hm. I was calling it Exile Island. I didn't think of naming it after an actual place.

Or, like, you could give the weapon salesman a dialogue response along the lines of...
Party: Could we get some weapons from TM scenarios?
Salesman: Can you carry an active nuke into the White House? No!

I agree, unless you pay close attention to which weapons get brought over.

I was going to pick the items. I don't have enough slots for everything. I only wanted to pick the interesting items. Of course compared to items in BoA scenarios these will be underpowered.

The Lyceum was only the primary BoE board for less than a year. The BoE ITW board was the main board from 1997 to 2000.

I'd suggest adding Draxis to your list too, and Tim Farland. And Measle. And Caligula. Lord Arkanor and Drazuv were more Arena types. Oooh, what about Wild Ali?

People from your list that I remember and something(s) I remember about them:

Aceron - Malkeera, Kaimorad, Arena
Akhronath - Arena, Archives, Tolkein
Alcritas - Lyceum, Olympia, Arc
Brett Bixler - Website, Spheres, Hunchback
Creator - still active
Dahak - still active
Djur - still active, BoE graphics database
Dragon - played hockey?
Dragyn Bob - silly, silly boy
Drakefyre - still active
Drizzt - Germany?
Elwin - nice guy, druid obsession
Flameball - remember, but not notable
Istara - very nice, Aussie, did news in UAE
Leminex - remember the name, and some posts
Lkae - Janet Cone, did some scenarios and graphics
Lt. Sullust - every now and then is active
Minstrel - not really BoE
Mr. Meanor - not really BoE
Pokey - funny guy, nice, did some skiing
Relhan - great website (Keep of Tyr-Kal), graphics
Ryan - made graphics for contest winners
Stareye - still active
Taraka - nice, had a website with leaves
Tarl Kudrick - didn't really stick around long
Terror's Martyr - angry
Tharma - fanfics, etc.
Thissa - aka Alec, still active
Tigrene - only around for a little while, Russian?
Turtlewhipper - not really BoE
Wyrmfire - worked on Vahnatai Week w. Zaloopa

The Knights Who Say Ni!
Scenarios, more than a dozen still there, and half of them by Brave Sir Robin himself. :P
Graphics (many of them because BSR knew how to flatter a lady) ;)
And a small succession of websites, most of them dead by haxoring. :(

And why does Zxquez stand alone? He was one of the Knights (So was TM, but Zxquez kept being, IIRC).

Tim Farland - graphics, failed scenario using same graphics set as Masks
Caligula - swiss, nice guy, sometimes pretended to be JV
Measle - skiing
Drazuv - mormon
Wild Ali - Paladin's Quest (scenario with nudey custom graphics), general ITW board terror

Also, why is Ryan Phelps associated with the Anama?

Isn't Ryan Thompson the one who made the Anama scenario?

As for Ryan Phelps, other scenarios?

It's a good thing you asked that, because we happen to have an expert on the subject: Drakefyre!

You know, I should add real names to the monikers so I map people, scenarios, and handles.

Ryan Phelps: Zankozzie's Big Mistake, Chains, etc.

Drizzt: Forsaken, Brotherhood of the Hand, Shadow of the Stranger

If you want real names for people in particular, I know about half of the people on the list.

Zxquez made a couple of bad scenarios that he'd rather have dissappear. He also made a couple of bad graphics. The most memorable to me, a red cat.

Drizzt had Forsaken, Brotherhood of the Hand, and Shadow of the Stranger. (The Drizzt Trilogy)

Measle's notable for humor scenarios (Farmhands!!!, Back to Normal to name some). And he made the Best Scenario Never Released. :P

New people:

Alorael
Andrea

Isn't Djur also the owner of desperance, or was it someone else?

Edit:
Found my old BoE bookmarks on a backup drive.
Motrax's Lair is still around...

Skyle? Was active member?

Alorael didn't do BoE, Andrea = Djur = desperance, Skyle was indeed a good active member of the community.

Right. I've almost got a full list of people.

The max will be 56 people. Just a few more. Any more people?

Also, if you know anyone who can write poems, could you convince them to do a short BoE poem. I'll use it as the intro page to the scenario.

Tharma had some BoE-related poetry. Drakey may have a copy of it. Tracking Tharma down to get permission to use it may be difficult.

I have Tharma's e-mail, so no worries. Assuming her e-mail hasn't changed.
