Sigh, I always have the most troubles with forging a character: either you're from another region, in which case it can feel forced to suddenly land upon the realm in question, or you're based locally, and the pressure to absorb all the surrounding happenings is steep!

I typically like to know about one noteworthy event or rumor that would whet the appetite of many who hear it, otherwise I struggle with the intersection of a character's backstory and the current actions transpiring. Truly, the first step is the most daunting. D:

At any rate, I won't dominate this introduction thread, and I'll meander about for intel.

Most people don't go around telling their entire backstory to every single person they meet! You'll be fine. Just ask around, read the message boards (We even have some in-game!) and mingle and socialize at hotspots. You'll pick up rumors and information pretty quickly.

In the worst case you could also make a character expressly with the intent of getting to know the server a bit before you roll the character you intend to play. There's no limit to how many characters people can play at once, after all!

Hello!

I am a new player, though I do have a little experience with NWN2, since I played it a bit nearly a decade ago. I am completely unfamiliar with The Sword Coast Chronicles, but I am excited to learn and play here. I found and picked TSSC, because it has the highest number of active roleplayers, which I hope means there will be many types of players to learn from and enjoy. I am considering a wizard as my first character, because I am in love with their roleplay, but I have also spent a couple of hours reading the wikipedia and considering other classes. Whatever I choose, I will be online once I finish downloading all of the files from the server!

Welcome! I've recently returned myself and have been spending the last two weeks or so reading the excellent wiki for information in order to catch up. Lots of custom content. Also, BGTSCC has a discord with all sorts of helpful people. The conversation can range though so be warned! :P

New to BGTSCC but not to NWN. Seems like this is the only place that is still active on gamespy these days (besides Haven) so I guess I'll be spending some quality time here. Played both NWN 1 and 2 since day of release but took a hiatus due to other issues for over ten years. Now that I'm back, looks like some things have changed. Will take me a little time to get the hang of things again but it shouldn't be too difficult. I RP a purple dragon knight of Cormyr. Looking forward to interacting with the rest of the community.

Hey all, not entirely new since I played a couple of years ago, but only for a week or two. Looking forward to meeting all of you and being apart of the experience and the community! I've been playing for a couple of weeks and so far have had the chance to play with some awesome people and spend some time exploring to take the server in and appreciate all the hard work that makes this possible. Still learning the cadence of RP in an online environment, but I'll get it. I tend to be on the shy side of things, especially while I'm learning the ropes and not to step on anyone's RP toes. Feel free to break me out of my shell haha. I play Arturi in game. Working on Character Biography soon. See you in there!

Hello.

I am Agog. I am french. I played on french servers as player and DM.

I am impressed by the technical quality of the module, the BG, the lifetime of the server, and many other things!

I wish myself a warm welcome! ( :P )

Hello all.

I am playing a Drow called Val'lyn and am looking forward to Rp'ing with you all

All my drop experience came from multiple servers back on Nwn1. As far as this game goes I don't think I ever even played the OC to completion much less played on Ped. Figured it was time to see how the other side lived.

Hello,

I am krighaur and I am French (from Normandy). I played in french servers, long ago, then returned to play one year ago and stopped.

I want to try a non french server, but I fear it will be difficult (I can write and read english, but I am slow at that) so I am not entirely certain I will play. If you see my PC in game And I don't respond quick enough, please don't think it's because I am ignoring you, it's just a problem of language translation.

Oh last thing, I am old, very old ;) and some may know my pseudo because I did some custom content for the game.

Hello there!

There are lots of people for whom English is not their first language. If you feel you are slowing down a conversation, a simple Out of Character statement that you are trying will make just about anyone understand and will be patient with you.

Hope you play and enjoy it

Thank you both

Jude, good to meet you, you know I just want to find a place for my aasimar barbarian Luniel.

I have seen in the discord creator (I write rarely but I read) that you are very talented.That said if I may help, it would make me happy

Yay! New people!

Glad to have you, and welcome!

Krighaur, do not worry about the language barrier. We have a lot of non-native speakers, and I've barely had issues with it, personally. Added to that, we've got this neat feature in-game, that'll show if someone is typing! So everybody will know when you are responding! :-D
