Props to Funky & team on the Hells. Been playing there w/my son and of course usually a team of 10 total. I have to say that the experience to me is as close to playing a Box, multi-character D&D game I've ever had on-line. There's intense action, requiring incredible team play. I'm really really enjoying the whole experience there. I guess the rest of the LL areas finally became to me more of a "Well if this or that player doesn't contribute, we won't wipe or anything bad." But in the Hells, a single mistake by a single team member can (and has) resulted in a party wipe. Really can't say enough good about our experiences through the first four levels. Makes me think entirely differently when I hear "Go to Hell" now 0.o
Actually, I was thinking of a couple of other "fun times" 0.o
In the first, our puller died while all the rest of us was safe in our little ring wall Well of course, the wall had to be broke so another tank could run out & rez our puller and they both could run back to safety .... Errrr - we DID need to fix that wall - didn't we?? =/
Another time was a simple "Newby pull", where walking forward I bet no more than 5 extra steps caused a rather - shall we say - overwhelming spawn 0.o
We had another rather amusing one last night in Malbolge when our BBoD'ers were outside the wall and dead and there were clouds somewhere near but we sure as hell couldn't see them. It was like that bit in Predator where they shoot the living crap out of the foliage trying to target the invisible alien but swap the guns for implosions. Its on me, its on me.......kaboom, kaboom, kaboom..........no its on you..kaboom, kaboom, kaboom....did we get it?......No there it is.kaboom, kaboom, kaboom....resting for more implosions, did we get it, I don't care I'm getting more just in case, somebody get the dead people.
Props to Bloodmoon for introducing me to NWN. Thanks a lot dude, I really needed to spend every waking hour playing this game. I still get calls from autocross buddies every week or two wondering what happened to me.
To Funky and the DM team who spend countless hours keeping our gaming going. To the DMs who can keep some semblence of sanity when asked the same question the 10,000th time. To the DM's who leave good parties to help people (some of whom seem to resent or actively resist that help). To the ones that work behind the scenes doing playtesting, balancing, and writing descriptions on hundreds of new items.
To bhao for his spell description mod. Please take Funky up on his offer for HG2 development.
To Mish, Sabre, Tyr, Miles, Claus, and others who post builds on the forums. Thanks from us all!
To the majority of players on HG for being Good Folk. Even after I attempt another lame joke on party chat.
To Cath and others who offer help on runs like Xul, Lolth, Immo, DB, etc. Usually with no reward of xp or loot. Just let us lowbies catch up sometimes for the xp dregs!

Props to the people who were on the two extremely fun runs, Sss'ith and Desert, last night, I had a blast and laughed so hard my stomach still aches a bit, but in a good way :-) The lord of the rings inspired fairytale of our "fellowship" told by Bingo was most rememberable of all the crazy fun I think (yeah, dunno if that's how you spell remeberable but... english is not my first language :-)) And then there was the dwarven magic and so on, well, I think you had to be there :-)
Gemlila: ty for the rings once more :-) and for leading us onto such fun and smooth runs :-)
Huge props to Brang, Trysten, and Valeria (character names, sorry did not catch account names) for helping me last night with getting the Crown needed to pursue the next step. The run was fun and the group that joined for the most part did not need the tag so were doing it for fun and to help us out. Big thanks!
Also big props to Domicron for showing a newb to the server the "ropes". Cheers, it is much appreciated!
Oh I used to be disgusted and now I try to be amused.
