    I think I've completely forgotten it too. :) Do you have a link?

    Nice find! That would have been just a couple of months after I ventured out of the Civ 4 forum for the first time. :)

    Aptly enough, a few games later we got a huge influx of Realpolitik players from Civ4 S&T that pretty much rewrote the community. Still, in retrospect I'm amazed we managed to assemble a coherent hobby out of this. XD

    That's really quite long ago. My earliest wall messages date back to around that time.

    Indeed. Writing wiki articles on the IOT tradition, sometimes I almost feel like a real historian. :^)

    Side comment: I have a friend called Þorvaldur, but being Icelandic, he pronounces it (soft-th) Thor. How do you pronounce Thorvald? (I'm guessing just as Tor-vuld.)

    Close. In Norwegian the 'd' is actually silent, so it's 'Tor-val', though to English speakers it'll sound more like 'Tuhr-val'.

    And I thought that Germanic languages were *easy* to pronounce. :p

    At least it's not Finnish. ;)
