Hello everybody, my name is John and I've recently been rediscovering my old love of the Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale and Planescape games. I've been reading these forums heavily for a few weeks now and figured I'd join to participate in discussions as well. I'm 32 and my introduction to D&D was through Baldur's Gate II when it was brand new, I was 15 at the time and it completely changed my life. I'll never forget rolling a character for the first time, understanding almost nothing about what I was doing but it was love at first sight and I've since replayed the game more times than I can count.

The enhanced editions showing up as available on my phone after not having played the games for many years brought me back, and later I got all of the enhanced edition games for PC and have been going through the Baldur's Gate series recently (currently I'm playing a Priest of Lathander and am going through the Underdark with Keldorn, Aerie, Nalia, Imoen and Neera). I also began a new game on Icewind Dale but have put it on hold until I've cleared Throne of Bhaal.

I have a 12 year old son and 8 year old daughter who I've been trying to introduce to the games with varying degrees of success; my daughter began a game as a Shaman (lol) and they both come to see when I'm battling something like a Lich or a Mind Flayer with excitement, and they will occasionally peek at my Forgotten Realms source books. Anyway, I hope to become an active member here and learn from others, I play on 'normal' difficulty since it's been so many years and I've forgotten much of the intricacies of magic and combat, but I'm beginning to be comfortable again, I was able to defeat the Shade Lich, Firkraag and a few other difficult enemies and believe I will be able to go up to 'core rules' soon. Thanks for reading!
