For most of the people who buy OMF:BG , they will not care who is carried over from the first game because they did not play 2097.

Ah, those youngsters...

I know that I do care - and thatīs all that is important for me.
Since this isnīt a sequel, I am glad that at least SOME characters survived.
BTW: remember Hans Kreissack was 105(or so) - and this was a long time ago - so nowadays(in BG) I suppose humans can be 200 or more.

It looks a lot cooler with 2097's menu music playing in the background.

PLEASE NOTE that this procedure is elective, and the results have not been proven. Who knows, because it IS a HOLE in your HEAD. (you may now make reference to the NIN song )

Trepanation is the making of a small hole in the skull of the adult by use of a surgical drill known as a trepan. It not brain surgery (e.g., lobotomy). It is performed solely on the skull bone and does not enter the brain. A small "hole" (size is chooseable) made in the skull.

The purpose of trepanation is to give the closed skull of the adult an expansion window and thereby to restore the full pulsation which was lost when the skull sealed. The pulse wave then blows up the brain capillaries with blood to the level of childhood, accelerating brain metabolism and supposedly empowering the brain to permanently regain its "youthful" level. An equivalent volume of cerebrospinal fluid is squeezed out to make room for the extra blood and thereafter the ratio between the two fluid volumes in the brain is altered in favour of blood. An increase in energy and sense of "well being" is the most common result.

There is usually a mild, constant euphoria. It's more or less "permanent," althought a person would sort of get used to it. Trepanation, supposedly, is also "consciousness-altering." With more contact between capillaries and brain cells the brain could maybe function more efficiently, but this varies with every person.

Some people act like this trepanation like it's a religious cult, while some people just have the attitude that it is a medical procedure to improve their lives. It depends where you look, some people are normal, some people are wackos.

With sci-fi, all this opens up some real cool story possibilities, especially with all the "enhancements" a cyborgs has to his body and brain. I'm not sure of Steel Claw's particular equipment, but from the clear dome on his skull, you can see why I mentioned trepanation. Or Krang from Ninja Turtles.
