Tell your first stories from playing BG1 in the 90s.
If you, like me, still play BG1 (and 2) but was a fan even in the good old days: Please tell your stories on what you thought, what you did, did you make any goofy mistakes? etc.
I can start with a small anecdote and then put more stories in the comment section.
I have been a table top board game and role player from about 10 years of age. When I was around 12 or 13 and playing the Swedish version of D&D (Drakar och Demoner) I created a elven warrior named "Lorion" and he was my favorite character for a long time. When Baldur's Gate came out I bought it, put in the first of the five CD ROMs and created my first character. An elven warrior (ranger?) and I named him: Lorion.
The game starts and it is stated that "your foster father Gorion has raised you...". I was like: Holy cow this game is advanced! It takes my written name and reforms it for my foster fathers name and the narrator actually reads it out!
