Answers to "What happened, GB?"

In the thread "What happened, GB" several of us really old members appeared. The thread is of course focused on GB and not us as individuals, but seeing the likes of Kiddo, Weasel, Minerva, my countryman Karembeu made me curious to find out what actually happened to you all. What happened to me? Bac...

I'm frankly amazed how many really ancient members actually appeared for one or two posts in this thread. I think it's time to start an "update" thread for us to dwell in and shed sentimental tears :D

Nom1fan, it's an old game, not many people are playing it anymore.

As for your question, it's not explicitly explained precisely what the Nameless one did that made him choose this fate, but in various dialogues throughout the games there are hints of the quality of his previous acts.

I second that. I was not drawn to GB by walkthroughs, or novelties, or anything "sparkly" for that matter. It was "just" the people that took time to participate, and quite a lot of them are still around. Totally agree. I was drawn to, and stayed for many years, at GB because of the unusal mix of p...

Menzoberranzan was a role playing game that SSI brought out in 1994. I think this is the first time ever someone has reminded me of actually having played that game. I hardly remember a thing, but I do remember I played it, together with some SSI game called Dark Sun. At the time, I was looking for...

Member yuanyelss should be banned, he is just copying brief sentences that others have already posted, and spreading advertisments for some fake jewellry websites.

I would join this pub and discuss the world's greatest game, my team (Arsenal), Champions League and other tournaments, but I hesitate due to the severe vulgarisation and Americanisation implicated in the thread title.

I've never tried, but from what I've heard, the aura levels will stack when the same character is wearing items granting the same aura.

I've never heard there is a specific limit in how many auras a merc can have apart from the natural limitations of equipment slots.

DW, I know you've always been interested in this area and I know I also have always been the one who have emphasised the lack of evidence for the idea that psychiatric disorder would be related to creativity or artistic skills. I have known for several years that my colleagues are working on this fi...

Now I'm in Ulaan Baatar and I have better internet here than I had in LA. Tomorrow it's off to Hong Kong, so from now I should be able to check my forums.

Hah, you picked up on my colleagues work! There is a current and pretty well funded hypothesis that the genes that increase risk for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder (which are largely the same genes) also increase some cognitive abilities such as creativity - in those who are carriers of the risk...

Tricky, it's highly unlikely that the very low and very transient electromagnetic field used for fMRI would cause any harm or lasting effects. What is interesting with Nora's paper, is that it may be a confounding factor in all fMRI studies used to identify brain regions that are activated when vari...

The study is published in Neuroimage, a high-impact journal for brain research, and the first author, Nora Volkow, is a leading scientist in the field and also the head of NIDA. This paper is very important and will create a lot of waves in the fMRI world. Together with the dead-fish study, I think ...

Finally, I am leaving the worst ****hole in the world, AKA Los Angeles. This however means some time with no internet. From 15-23 May I'll be in Tokyo and then I have internet but I'll be working a lot. 24 May-5 June I'll be in Bejing, Ulan Baator and the Gobi desert, the latter definitely without i...

Hi Siberys, long time! So you have started the process of changing gender from male to female. It's usually a long process both physically and psychologically. Good to hear your family and friends are accepting about it - negative attitudes from people around you can often be the most difficult part...

Weather in BC was absolutely brilliant, perfect in fact! And it was great to get to see DW after all those years! :)

So next it's Washington DC and New York City, and then Tokyo, Beijing, Hong Kong and a holiday in the Gobi desert. Any Gamebanshee members there?
