One member is still pending activation.  If they don't activate soon, I'll delete them and then the 1001st member will become the 1000th! XD

XD

How long does one have, anyway? I think I deleted my activation email two or three months after I became active.

There's no time limit, but usually the people that don't activate right away entered in some fake email address or mispelled theirs.

I'm new.  But I don't know what member I ended up being. :P

I'm new in several ways, though.

Heh, it looks cool, I think.

Plus, being the rank of Wizard's Slave, it fits. :)

Looking in order of Date joined, it would appear I am member #1000.  Does that mean I get a free year of membership or something? ;)

Of course!  But membership here is free anyway, so that's nothing special. ;P

Anyway, please tell us a bit about yourself and how you found our site. :)

I've actually been "lurking in the shadows" for a couple years now, seeing how this would turn out.

I've always been a huge KQ nut, even back when the original KQ just came out, and my parents got it for me when I was 6 (for my Apple IIe, in 1984...so then today I would be...).  When I saw that this project was going on, it really piqued my interest, and I was curious to see how far you guys would take it.  When you got the trailer online and even got the go ahead from Vivendi, I was ecstatic.

More personally, I work as a database and scripting programmer in the Chicago, IL, USA area.  I am married (so back off, girls ;) ), and am getting my wife into the KQ series too (at least whatever games I can get working on my machine these days).

Oh, and since Yonkey isn't big on spoilers, I'll give him one:  Less than an hour ago I had an IM conversation with Yonkey ;)

 Hello all.  I played (or watched my Father play) KQV when it was still on Best Buy shelves a long time ago.  Though the disk is lost I did retain some favorable memories of it, so one afternoon I google "Kings Quest" more or less on a whim, and after a page or so of results found this.  I've been lurcking for several months, and since all I saw going on was "It'll be ready when it's ready, and you'll find out about it when its ready" plus a few forum game  I never bothered to register.  I changed my mind for no reason in particular ( I'm probably sounding like an utterly indecisive fool, pity it had to come out so soon ;)  ;D)  So here I am! 

  For the curious, I picked this name for the Roman Army Talk forums, as there is a city called Petra, capital of the Nabataean Arabs on Rome's border and eventually annexed by them.  It is also an architectural marvel and a (semi)popular tourist destination, so it the name is sort of a pun.  :P  Sorry for the obscure rant, but I though an explantion was warrented in these parts.   


  If you couldn't tell yet, I am a "history buff" so that what I do in most of my spare time.  Other personal information may follow as I think of anything interesting to the general public about my life that can't be used to find my top secret location scam me or anything.  ;D
