I just wanted to say, "Hi," to y'all (and also see how easy/hard it was to make a post in this forum)!  Anyway, this KQ9 project looks very exciting.  I can't wait!

Er, I mean, hi. XD Welcome to the forums! :D Why don't you tell us a bit about yourself in the Introduction Thread!

Aaron, I'm sure there's a pretty obvious answer to that *points to Kelsey's post* :P

Ohhhh... XD I was wondering what she meant by that post.

I kinda skimmed through that opening movie... I prefer the song she sings. ;)

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome!

I'm so glad other people are familiar with Prince Throckmorton.  He didn't get any screentime (in fact, he's only ever been mentioned in that one line by Rosella), but I feel as though "boring," old Prince Throckmorton has been grossly overlooked in the KQ universe.   ;)  Long live Throckmorton (not me, but the character)!  (I'm such a King's Quest nerd.)

Anyway, thanks again!

P.S. Sorry about starting this message here.  I guess I skimmed over the Introduction thread.

Don't worry, King's Quest nerds are accepted and welcome here! XD And don't worry about the wrong section thing, if you went straight into Haven the first time you came, I might be a little worried. :P My mom and I like Prince Throckmorton; he conjugates Latin verbs! XD

Hey, kids!

I just wanted to introduce myself, seeing as I'm brand new to these forums.  I work for a national financial institution as an operations supervisor.  I'm actually considering a job change at present to a much smaller bank (I'm tired of the corporate mumbo-jumbo).  In my off-time, I enjoy playing board games.  I would love to be involved in the development of a game someday.  That includes computer and/or video games as well.  I dabble in short story writing, but hope to one day write an actual book.  I hate cell phones (although, I have come to depend on mine...unfortunately), love roses, and currently attempt to drink 8 glasses of water a day (quite the challenge, let me tell you).

I am a HUGE King's Quest fan!  Of course, everyone says that here, right?  I've been playing the series since I was eight (shortly after the release of King's Quest III).  I started out on the extremely ancient Tandy 1000.  The Tandys had no hard drive (at least not the one I had), so I had to swap disks between certain screens.  It was SO slow.  I had that ridiculous thing until shortly after King's Quest VI was released.  Sad, old Tandy couldn't even complete the final puzzle of King's Quest V (the Mordack/wand challenge) because it was so slow.  I would always die because I couldn't get the icon in the right spot and click in time!  Thankfully, I have since upgraded my computer, but still enjoy a delightful romp through the entire series every now and again.

Anyway, that was a bit of a tangent.  Congratulations is in order if you've made it this far through my lengthy post.  In fact, I think I'll end it here.  I'm excited to join this fantastic group of fellow KQ fans and I'm highly anticipating the release of KQIX.

Ta-ta!
