With old introductions gone, why not introduced ourselves (though we already know each other )?
Well, it will be more of a re-introduction thread I guess.
I will start. I am Gill. I like to play D&D. I am what you can call a hardcore Forgotten realms fan. However outside of the realms, my interest drops with exponential curve (y=e^x). I am a physicist but I had a lot of interest in 3D modeling (which was helpful in my studies too, to some extent). Now that boring RL stuff is over, I plan to make foundry quests and share my D&D stories with you all.

as previously posted I am Apocrs
I'm a long time gamer and fan... my first toy was an Atari lol.
Video games have been a huge part of my passion and love in life.
I am an Art Institute Graduate in Computer animation art and modeling, I'm also a concept artist and keep my artistic eye out for what looks really Cool
I have busted my hump to bring you the I believe it to be the very first User Created Dungeon or (UCD) in any MMO (I believe it will showcase what the Foundry Tool can really do!) I hope everyone enjoys and I'll be working hard to create more if it's what the masses end up wanting. Again welcome to Neverwinter!

Hello all! Thanks for making the thread, gillrmn. Im a DnD player from the 70's, with a bit of time off .. actually about 17 years off. lol.. Had a kid, got a job, etc.. and that took all my time.. . But I kept myself busy playing Wow When it came out, and then Star Trek, and dabbled in a number of games. I have a lot more time these days, to be able to devote to something of this caliber. It has been a fun ride, to be sure, through all the hair pulling moments when I yelled at the screen, and everyone around me was like, "wtf is a dialog trigger?". lol. I have extensive training in 3D environments, and animation, using just about every one of them over the years, and find the Foundry an absolutely wonderful tool. I like to remember the roots of DnD, and always worthy of mention are Gary Gygax, and Dave Arneson, whom began my journeys into the unknown. The Dead Ale Wives deserve their own area of mention, for being legendary. DnD shaped a great portion of my childhood, into adulthood, and provided rich worlds to excercise my imagination in, so I am grateful for those years, and parents that let me play "Satan's game".

I'm Zaph. I actually started my D&D carreer with... Dragonlance after being impressed by the SSI Gold Box games for the C-64 (Champions/Death Knights of Krynn). Okay, I know what you're thinking, but I was still in elementary / high school, didn't know better, and... and... DON'T JUDGE ME! *cries*
Anyway. I've been obsessed with UGC in online games since the MUD days of the 90s (if you ever played on the MUD 'Pandora's Box', I built the Mountain Nevermind zone there). If you played City of Heroes, you may have played some of my story arcs (@Zaphir) there too. IRL I'm an IT security auditor / researcher, so it makes sense that I have to create some stuff to counteract all the breaking of stuff I do at work! I consider text the best storytelling medium (mostly due to my MUD background)... but don't worry, I know what "show, don't tell" means.

Hi I am DeathsSickle/@DeathsCrowbar . I fix cartridge based gaming consoles, play lots of video games and currently have no job. Im a young guy. I run the guild Hardcore Christian Gamers. I am allergic to cats, and crustaceans. I live in the South in the US. I like sweet tea and coke(not together though), fried catfish and generally most fried foods.

I'm glad we have authors like you to set the bar high.
Every time they idiot-proof something...they make better idiots.

I am Alex Mars, aka Soulclaw, aka Forlorn_Hope, aka the Demiurge. I started PnP rpgs with the original three D&D tan pamphlets in the late 70s and have been playing PnP games ever since. I got into computer games with the Gold Box D&D games and into game editors with the Unlimited Adventures toolset. I made a lot of maps with the HoMM and AoW strategy game editors and ran several NWN1 campaigns and some small persistent worlds. Started in MMOs with UO in 98 and played most of them since then with a long stay in WoW and LotRO and currently playing SWTOR and CO.
Household: 1 wife and 3 cats, computer network/printer/MFP tech, USMC 1975-80.-Agent of Satan, but my duties are largely ceremonial.

Neverwinter isn't D&D, it is a MMO based on a game that uses D&D terms but isn't really D&D either. NW is fun (for that matter so is 4E), but it isn't D&D, and once you wrap your expectations around that you will be able to enjoy the game for what it offers and not worry about what it does not.

Greetings. I am Krubar. I am in college working on a IT degree and a programmer degree. My first toy that I did basic programming on was a commodore 64 computer. I have played many computer games including Baldurs Gate 1 and 2, Icewind Dale, Diablo 1-3, Neverwinter Nights 1 and 2, and many other games. I use to mess with the Neverwinter Nights toolset to try to make a persistent world but I did not get very far with it. I thought I would have a hard time with the Neverwinter Foundry because of my lack of experience. I was wrong. The Neverwinter Foundry is actually fairly easy to get started creating quests. I think anyone can make a quest in the Foundry. The really good quests will require more time though. Some of these Silverstars and Moonstars have some truly awesome quests with lots of details.
You will most likely enjoy the Foundry. If you have any questions about the Foundry, just ask any Silverstar or Moonstar or a GM.

I'm TiLT, and I work as a systems developer (a fancy name for a programmer). I have been a game master in roleplaying games for almost 20 years, and have built a lot of experience with storytelling and player expectations in that time. I've played every single edition of D&D ever released. I have a strong interest in game design, so you'll probably see me chime in once in a while to point out when someone's cool idea isn't really one that should be implemented, or vice-versa. I pay special attention to characters when designing my quests, giving them actual personalities and depth. I avoid the moustache twirling villains that D&D tends to be so plagued with.
Some of you may already know me as one of the people behind the Precursors official remix project for Star Control 2. I also released a module for Neverwinter Nights called Beasts of the Night that got into the NW Vault Hall of Fame, something I'm pretty proud of.

Hello all, and welcome.
I, Moondawg, have been playing D&D on an off since Gary Gygaxx first designed the original blue box. I have played almost every MMO (my closet looks like the storeroom of Game Stop), but I am very excited about Neverwinter and The Foundry. I can again, create my favorite campaigns and share them with everyone. To quote Mr. Gygaxx: "A DM only rolls the dice because of the noise they make."
I am a retired Network Administrator / Engineer so I have lots of time to play in The Foundry.
I will be more than glad to answer any questions you may have about The Foundry.
