Hello my Darlin's.

With the influx of new members brought about by our wonderfully talented Oblivion modders, and the new guys who've finally stumbled across our BG, NWN etc content (btw where have you been all these years???) it's becoming hard for an older but still rather hawt chick like me to keep up.

Now I'm not saying I'm going to be able to put a name to the Avatar of all six thousand, seven hundred and however many of you there are. BUT I'm willing to give it a shot.

So drop by and introduce yourself. And those who've been here for a while, reintroduce yourself just in case I missed you the first time around.

Tell us a little about yourself. Who you are and what you like to do.

We'll take it as read that everybody says Hello back, saves all that unnecessary typing. And if you do want to comment on a new member or some such thing, feel free to start a new thread below. Let's keep this as a nice clean Howdy session.

So to get the ball rolling...

Hi, I'm Jyzabyl. Unofficial Social Director here at SHS.

I've been here for a while now. I love my RPG's. I've been playing for... ummm... well let's just say I have shoes older than a lot of the members of this place.

I'm a player more than tech person. Occasionally I get asked for input on a Mod. This usually ends up with me washing the coffee cups in the workroom. But it's my little contribution.

I love BG, and Morrowind. I will one day love Oblivion once I get a new video card.

My hobbies include embarrassing my Daughter, hanging out with Musicians and flirting with any hapless fighter type who crosses my path.

Now who were you again?

I'm Tempest, and I'm a modder and fanfic writer.

Been playing games for a while-Baldur's Gate II is still my alltime favorite game, regardless of genre and platform. Came to Spellhold looking for mods, signed up, but have really only made my presence known in the last few months.

I'm the creator of Darian, a Baldur's Gate II npc mod in progress, and the author of a good bit of fanfic-Perspectives and Cold Fire.

For the most part, I'm just a stereotypical computer geek and college engineering student, though I'm known to lash out with psionic powers here on the forum for no apparent reasons. Mainly, I play games, read books, write fanfic, work on my mod, and pray I'm passing my classes.

I'm Solstice, and I'm... er... moral support!

I'm pretty new to the Baldur's Gate series-a friend gave the game to me when she got tired of it, sat down, and I absolutely loved it. I've been hanging around here recently, as well as Pocket Plane and Gibberlings, where I'm known as Winter, and I'm told I'm fairly benign.

Not involved in any mods-as much as I'd like to, I just don't have the time and imagination to pull it off, and I have a lot of respect for those who do. Played Morrowind and Oblivion, but didn't like them very much.

I'm also from one of the most remote regions of anyone here at SHS, I think. My home is in Sand Point, in the Aleutian Islands off the Alaskan coast. I'm married, with a baby due in December, and teach third grade school. Not a whole lot else to say, other than I enjoy romance novels and romance mods for games-my appetite for that is insatiable, much to the amusement of my husband (but that's okay-he's a million times better than any hero from a book or game).
"Ok, I've just about had my FILL of riddle asking, quest assigning, insult throwing, pun hurling, hostage taking, iron mongering, smart arsed fools, freaks, and felons that continually test my will, mettle, strength, intelligence, and most of all, patience! If you've got a straight answer ANYWHERE in that bent little head of yours, I want to hear it pretty damn quick or I'm going to take a large blunt object roughly the size of Elminster AND his hat, and stuff it lengthwise into a crevice of your being so seldom seen that even the denizens of the nine hells themselves wouldn't touch it with a twenty-foot rusty halberd!

Ha Ha, now I'm Bardess, as it should be.

I was one of those forum board lurkers long before I registered or started posting. I never would have played BG, or IWD or Ps:T or anything were it not for my brother, who introduced me to it about 4 years ago. Because I'm a brat girl.

Since then and even before, I have been trying to write a novel (book) and actually wrote two and a half, but they are in a mess. I am trying to make something out of the more recently completed one and publish it in my little country. In the stories, too, I prefer bad guys over good and thieves above others (although my BF doesn't fit there. well, maybe it's better to spend time with someone who will be good to you in real life, heh...). I was looking for this kind of romanceable NPC for BG(2, I don't know why :blink: ) but as I haven't found them, I've decided to try modding myself and make one :)

I am a high-school student (2nd year), if you call high school that stuff (4y) that comes after the elementary (8y). And I chose a damned hard one and am now suffering... :)

Heyo guys/gals I'm ghost.

I play/mod oblivion, used to play/mod morrowind but stuff happend with it and I can't find another copy so no more of that, but I'm still in love with the game.

I'm not exactly your run of the mill nerd, I know when to not let that part of me out, so I'm cool with alot of the groups at school.

I love poetry, mostly romantic poetry, as I have been known to write a few pieces.

I've always wanted to write a book or speech, I don't know why but I've always wanted to, and I always have ideas running through my head.

And I'm a short (I mean short) film director, me and one of my friends desided to write a script to a movie about a year ago, and a few months ago we thought we could use some practice. So we started doing short films.

Well thats me.
And I shall stand upon a sandbar in my bucket because I'm beyond that cool.

Howdy. I'm Amy, and I'm hopelessly cool and things.

I'm a small-time poet, but have been published a bit and won a few competitions. You can see my more artistical stuff at my deviantart (http://sister-sleep.deviantart.com). I'm also quite fond of attractive boys. And girls. Tehee. I'm also fantastically vain.

My taste in music is eclectic, my taste in food limited to what I can cook (so basically just super noodles - I've been known to set my kitche on fire making cereal). My favourite films are Harold and Maude, Quills, Pleasentville, TRAINSPOTTING. My one true love is the 80's new wave icon Adam Ant - before he went all crazy and bald.

I have a soft spot for anything by Irvine Welsh, Kurt Vonnegut and the poetry of Selima Hill.

In case you haven't noticed, arrogance is also one of my many talents.

Solaufein aka CoM_Solaufein. As you can see by my join date, I am a modder from long ago. I've been a fan of Baldur's Gate when it was first released and have been a fan since then. I got into "modding", back then it was "customizing", when TeamBG first came out. I've been here when this was Forgotten Wars and FW Studios.

Other than running my own mod community and modding, I like to read, build computers, play computer games and write. Most of my writing is horror, dark romance and adventure stories and poems that I would like to get published one day.

Her lips were red, her looks were free
Her locks were as yellow as gold
Her skin was white as leprosy.
The Nightmare Life-in-Death was she,
Who thicks man's blood with cold.

Hey people, for a reintroduction, I'm Pain Elemental. I've been around for years, even from before the change to SHS, I just don't spam that much :P

I love all the RPG's and I love to play mods, so I feel right at home here.
Unfortunately, I have absolutely no talent in scripting whatsoever, so I never attemped to make a mod, although I would love to.

My hobbies are primarily gaming, watching movies and going to the pub with some friends. School is somewhere in the very deep corners of my mind.
I live in everyone favourite pot-loving free country: The Netherlands.
After an eternity away from you all, I've returned.

Hello. Just arrived today and am making my way around to see where everything is and who as well. :rolleyes: I have only been playing Oblivion since January 2007, and I'm a consumer, not a modder :whistling: I'm often long winded, but I do try to be congenial and community oriented.

I'm a semi retired accountant; married 39 years, seven children and 14 grandchildren. My usual 'tagline' is 'The Ancient One" especially lately because I am usually the eldest member of the boards I have been visiting.

I started out (as did so many) playing D & D, over 25 years ago when my sister in law gave a set to our son for his 10th birthday. He and one of my son-in-laws are still in deep... stuff.... for leaving my near goddess mage Undermountain for three years then finally telling our party that 'we had magically been transported to safety with our spoils, because they got too busy to DM any more games! I shall get even someday. Then that same son gave me a subscription to UO for my birthday 6 years ago and I have played there ever since.

Our youngest daughter-in-law gave me Morrowind to play a couple years ago and hooked me, so when she got Oblivion and let me try it out, I had to have that one. Mods are very new to me, as the Morrowind was on my old XBox. A whole new world has opened to me now. Is there a place for "Modaholics" here? :wacko: Not that I need help or anything like that.... My husband doesn't play online. He sometimes does Playstation, but usually only watches TV and tries to act nonchalant when I stay up all night gaming. He's nice.

Nice to meet you all. :cheers:

Well this might be a little late (been here for a month or so) but I'm Brad. I'm a 20 year old college student (read: poor as dirt). I've been a gamer all my life. First game I ever played was Zelda on the original Nintendo and it has since spiraled out of control. I now am a computer and console gamer, and love good RPG's (Oblivion and Fable being my favorites , though I have a soft spot for Zelda obviously).

I'm the author of Lacrimosa (an Oblivion based comic) though that project has taken a back seat for a bit. I'm primarily a player, though lately I've been dabbling in some modding - mostly retexturing.

During the summer I work for a catering company as a cook, or a dishwasher, or assistant warehouse manager. Basically I do what I am told.

I used to play the saxophone for 6 years, and I have been singing for 9. Currently I am active in theater with my college and have even declared it as my minor.

Music is my passion. I have great respect for all musicians though I may not like their music. My tastes in music are primarily metal (though I choose bands that sing and not scream), however I also enjoy jazz, some techno, most rock, and classical.

When i am around i post here and there and do this and that and perform some tertiary functions too, and when i'm not around i'm probably playing WoW (Which is a lot of the time as of late).

I've never introduced myself!!!

I'm Kellen, and I'm random/creative mix of person here. Why just the other day I was doing a small bit of poetry and that only happens once in a blue moon. (Speaking of I don't think I've yet inflicted you with my first attempt at poetry) I tend to stick to short stories. I've tried novels before but I can never seem to get very far into them. I just kinda die off.

So Kellen writer, and spammer, and rper, and NWN2 player, and BG2 lover who finds himself no longer playing such a magnificent game.

I was born on December 27 of 1989. And I live in SD of the USA. Anything else?

Hello, hello! I'm Isilven, or Issy, the Hyperactive Sex-Crazed Chipmunk! I am also a ninja with a penchant for large words and a love of sweets.
I'm a modder and voice actress here at good ol' SHS. I'm an old fogey, back from the days when I was but 14, writing a mod including a daughter of Corellon Larethian, and I was called Imoen Nightflame, in the olden days of Forgotten Wars.
I like anime, I sing pretty well, I draw decently, and I love writing and listening to music. I've also been playing PnP D&D since 2E first came out, over a decade ago. I play everything modded here. I'm also 19, born May 18th, 1988. I live in Texas (unfortunately), but am originally from Fresno, California.

Welcome, welcome all! :cheers:

Oh, and please do ask me about my exploits in Oblivion. They're simply marvelous.

Hi I'm Hoppy and I don't know how to get an avatar. 31 years young and love playing RPG games. BG1 and 2 are my favorite right now because of all the mods thus my reason for becoming a member. I have enjoyed The Elder Scrolls as well but I can get lost in those games. I have a Bachelors in Music in performance and I am only a few credits short of a Masters in Music. I am pretty new to gaming but I really like this community of modders here and hope to create my own mod soon.
Nice meeting you all!

My true full name is Guido Maarten Voets, 24 years old and I originate from the Netherlands. I am modder here at SHS working already for quite a while on the Mod for the Wicked... yeah, I have to many hobbies causing me to be a bit slow and an one man show never goes fast.
I have roleplayed since...poef... can't remember. I think about 10 years ago. Though it didn't really start with D&D, but that is a long story.
I sing a bit, code a bit, create my own campaign world a bit, play PnP a bit, cuddle my gf a bit ;) (yeah romantic fool here), go out with friends, that is basically everything in a nutshell. Could say more, but I doubt that is heavily interresting.

See you around and enjoy your stay at SHS :hug:

Still modding the Mod for the Wicked... It is a big project you know... And I got sidetracked (several times) a bit... sorry.
