strong text Hello from Sunny So. California!!! I’m an og player from the late 2000 to about 2011 on only one server, Sam’s Server - Menzoberranzan where I played Paige mostly and Lae’ Lalia Del A’rmgo. This game has been apart of my family since it first came out, and even my son played starting at age 13, back when my uncle (Unc) and and my mom (Ginasue/DM Star). Anyways, i’m building a mod for my son’s DnD group and NWNServer … it marks 10 years since i played NWN. so hey there hi there ho there!
Ginasue is your mom? WOW! I believe she had a website called The Kindred Spirit with a lot of Forgotten Realms lore and Dungeons and Dragons information on it. Menzoberranzan was going to be/or had been for a short while, part of ALFA - A Land Far Away as I recall. Faceless One played there too if my memory is correct.
What’s an OG? Obese Gargoyle? Ornamental Gnome? Ostracized Gorilla?
I remember Ginasue.
she did indeed have that site… she did most of what she had planned and brought Sam’s and Dragon Island together - and i mean together - cause when i inherited the server, the minute the dm’s presented new areas/updated areas that she previously rejected, the physical server started crumbling and finally just … well… anywho nice to meet y’all. oh and OG = Ol’ Gamer… lol
Whisper it quietly but some people on here must be truly AG from the prehistoric days… (pong anyone)?
ancient gamer? antique?
I played pong. I also played “Hunt the Wumpus” and “Colossal Cave”.
played Startrek on a printout in the 70s … lunar lander on the graphics machine (an 8’ tall hulk hidden in a backroom)
i had to code pong b4 i could play pong. made a pacman game also… lol. my son, started playing when he was 13 - under awesome supervision of course… now he’s 27, i can’t EVEN think of arguing with him now a days// (now if Ginasue were still with us, THEY would be arguing…lol… and Unc and i would sit with blank faces like at a tennis match)
I’m pretty sure OG actually means Overaggressive Gnomes (really belligerent and really short.)
Anyway, hello from the Northern California as in the part where at least half the year is some version of summer.
I’ve been playing since around 2004, working on several servers to host, and mainly playing single-player games now. I’ve been around in the background mostly.
Hey y’all, this has been encouraging… Sooooooooooooooooo (as other’s from other community sites chime in, )May i present… [Sam’s Server - Menzoberranzan Community Discord Channel.(With Special invites to @Fester_Pot . @Zwerkules , and @Pstemarie --to be “consultants” if you will because it;s been a few years since I built a mod (Gina and I did the 9 Hells together)…
I have been around before Baldur’s Gate was released and I have all the games since. I was so excited for Neverwinter Nights since people could make their own adventures.
One of the first games I remember playing was Penguin Adventure on my brother’s Spectravideo MSX 728. This was the mid 80s, I believe. Friends had Commodore 64, but my brother wanted to learn programming so that’s why my parents bought that computer instead.
EDIT: The first game I ever remember buying for PC must have been Dark Forces II Jedi Knight. Great game, that one.
along my journey, i keep coming across aarchived/legacy pages and see names I remember, I know @KMdS was a host/GM in the early days - If anyone is in contact with KMdS, if it isn’t any trouble and its possible to contact him?
He is on Neverwinter Vault Discord.
