Thank you.

It was a weird time, I was in contact with the one responsible for that.

Besides, this was one of the last "real" poems I wrote, and the first hint towards me shifting more and more into writing short fantasy stories …

I translated it myself, then, and I once read that the professional translators had to be stopped translating it from German into English …

It has grown to be a custom of Larian to name NPCs in their games after active forum members. And there are LOTS of names in their first two games based on forum members !
I don't know about Divinity 2. It has more NPCs, and less NPC names based on forum members, I had the feeling.
