The Baldur's Gate Series is 10 today!

A big "Happy Birthday!" goes out to Baldur's Gate, which was released 10 years ago today, on the 30th of November 1998. Little could they have known that the modding community spawned by that release would still be alive and kickin' ten years in the future!

So if you have a beverage of some kind, raise your glass and give a toast--to Baldur's Gate, and to the IE Modding Community!

:cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

Yahaaaay, happy 10th birthday to our beloved Baldur's Gate, may it never be forgotten! :cheers:


(I promised a little and rather random present mod to be published today. Curse me if I don't get it right by the time of evening this part of the world!)

Good grief, there ARE two of these threads :blink: . Well, I suppose you can't fit the series' awesomeness in one thread, eh?

Wow, dang.
I guess this means I need to dig up the old discs, find a bunch of new mods I haven't tried yet, and play it all the way through BGI-Totsc-II-ToB one more time! Ahhhh nostalgia.

"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! Have I MADE myself perfectly CLEAR?!"
