Gaming geekery ...

In recent weeks, I've been playing Baldur's Gate II lots. I got my party through all of Shadows of Amn (SoA) and into the start of the Throne of Bhaal (ToB) expansion ... and then decided to take some time off and do something else for a while. Funnily enough, this has happened the last few games of BGII I've played - ToB is far more linear, and just doesn't have the charm of BGII.

So, I installed and started playing Icewind Dale II instead. While this also runs on the Infinity Engine, like the BG series, it's been updated to D&D 3rd edition, unlike the mutated 2nd ed. used in the others. When I first played it, I wasn't familiar with 3rd ed. and struggled with the game, and put it away and played other things. Since then, I've played Neverwinter Nights, also 3rd ed., and know the system better, so I decided the time was right to have another bash at IWD II.

I have a rank !

I have finally entered the British Fencing rankings system - I am 149th. Go me.

(in theory, I should have been in the rankings at the beginning of October, because I came 3rd in the Highland Open in late September. Alas, they were late getting their results to the men's epee ranking person, so I missed out then. Somehow, they still managed to leave those results out for the 1st November ranking update, so I was still in limbo. Finally, the December update rolled around (a few days late), and there I am ... )
