P.S. I joined Larian's previous forum shortly after the release of Divine Divinity. There are still a couple people around from before DD was released, and during the development of an earlier game that never got finished (publisher went out of business and took the rights to the game with them). Alrik (AlrikFassbauer) is still around; according to a quick forum search, Barnabus, Stone and Xanlosch have not been around for awhile (they primarily participated in the German forums).
For other names taken from the forum, Viper became a bandit (hasn't been around for a few months), Myrthos had a sword named after him, and Ddraigfyre was used as a password. That's all I can think of, but the list may not be complete.
