    Doesn't mean it's not a reference. Doesn't have to be the same Corwin, and for all we know they might've named CHARNAME Corwin in that playthrough for the lulz. I mean, we already know we're going to Dragonspear, or at least I am sure we are - the hints leading to that is piling up, after all.

    @Dee - Are you still giving out Clairvoyance badges for correct guesses? :v

    No. Corwin defeated the Dragon in 1276 DR . The CHARNAME left Candlekeep in 1374 DR.

    No link!

    This screems PRE-bg1. And were was charname saved, by Gorion??

    The dragon spear campaign?

    Wasn't this the rumor? I think someone said that Neera makes mention of Dragonspear Castle. At least that is what @Dragonspear‌ tells me...

    Well, now I'm panicking because I'm not sure if I remembered the right direction - I'm gonna have to try and dig up the thread where I read it :v

    Here it is: http://forum.baldursgate.com/discussion/27666/stuff-i-did-not-know-the-black-dragon-gate

    Allthough the guardsman dialogue doesn't appear yo be hinting at anything, unfortunately, and this might not have amyyhing to do with Adventure Y. Sorry for leading yku astray folks, please don't take away my cookies :(

    @ TomiLovric Hmm, this Adventure Y, I have no recollection of any drunk tweets that may have mentioned an adventure Y.

    **That's July 2012

    Here's what I think Adventure Y will be about: The Nashkel Mines have expanded to the point where excavations are undermining Nashkel, threatening the collapse of the town. Your job: Alert the population and oversee the moving of the entire town two miles to the east.

    Nah, too crazy. That kind of thing would never happen in real life. ;-)

    Just noticed this -- in that tweet Oster confirmed that the infinity engine will be retired. Sad -- hope this company sells it to someone else and that someone else gets the rights to make new adventures.

    But I'm guessing it does mean that IWD2 and PS:T are not planned to be enhanced in the foreseeable future, since both of those games use the Infinity Engine.

    Maybe, it could mean that since these games require such large changes to the IE that beamdog decided to just make a new engine from scratch instead of mess with the IE again. But somehow I don't think this is the case...

    Didn't know the plot had been used before. And in real life, too! You learn something new every day if you just follow these boards closely. :)

    It's an oldie but a goodie. Mine disaster/accident destroys/terrorizes town.
