Returning to the Forgotten Realms.

AD&D. If you're around my age or younger then those three little initials need little explaining. I've been role playing since the first installment of basic Dungeons & Dragons. Of course as the years have progressed there has been less and less time to enjoy it. Adulthood and the responsibilites that go with it have taken over leaving me less time to play. Luckily, with the popularity of the personal computer, I've been able to combine two fun activities into one. Just don't tell my wife. ;D

It's been nearly a year since I first created a desktop for the original, Baldur's Gate. During E3 (Yep, I'm mentioning it again nearly 2 months later) the guys from IMG along with yours truly had the honor of viewing Baldur's Gate II with Bioware and Macplay. Both companies supplied us with press kits, which had some nice art on it for BG2, which I happily accepted. Normally, I like to check the web for official desktops/wallpapers for each game, but I was surprised when I found there seems to be a lack of them for this title. This gave me a lot of room to work with and I eagerly took on the task creating this week's desktop simply entitled, "Shadows of Amn", after the game itself. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it.

Finally, there has been progess at my personal site, Custer's Corner. I've made mention for a few weeks that the teaser trailer would come down and something new would be going up to replace it and that finally happened. :) Last week I added the new title graphic, which is already receiving a lot of praise via email. There's still a little html work to do, but I went ahead and added the graphic so you can see that I am working on the site as time permits. This will be the hub to my web site once it's mapped and guide you to all the sections that my site will have. I hope that now this is done the rest of it will develope a little faster. ;D

Until then...
