LOL! A suburb actually of the Cities, so there is even less going on than you may think! Thanks for the salute, my personal feelings are that if you pick up a CRPG, and don't stay in character, you cheat yourself out of the experience. Even when I played Diablo II, I grunted along with my Barbarian, and laughed maniacally with my Necromancer!

To stay in character is actually not too difficult if you know what to do. The first time you play a CRPG, play your "alter-ego", the type of character you most closely identify with. Then, each subsequent game, at least for me, it seems easier to "get into character" and I take a lot of my play style from movies and books which can add flavor to any game.

For example, my favorite Bladesinger archetype is a Chaotic Neutral Albino Elf. Any fans of Michael Moorcock will know exactly who I am talking about. CN as an alignment is my interpretation of his actions and choices within the scheme of his environment.

If you do the Bladesinging way in BG2, and ONLY try to use certain weapons, in SoA for example HOW would a solo Bladesinger take down Kangaxx since there are no +4 swords (non-two-handed) until ToB?



Ah grasshopper. To ask this question is to deny half of your true Bladesinger nature. Never forget that Melf has placed his auspicious and Minute Meteors within your grasp.

DOH! Thanks Nifft, I forgot about those.

I use copious amounts of MMMs with my single-class mages/sorcs, but usually end up tanking with my Bladesinger. How could I lapse so much into barbarism to forget about that wondrous cure-all for all things that should not move?

Thank you master...

Dundee is correct. the hand is in abazigals enclave. how could i be so stupid? it knew it was on a human and there are virtualy none in there. only 5 in total. besides, youd could only miss it if you play like my brother (who missed carsomyr due to not searching bodies)

LOL, Andrewas. That's one for the books.When I was new to the game, in BGI, I got Ajantis killed, and didn't pick up his armor. When I got back, after revivng him, it was gone. Sure did miss that Antheg Armor and +2 War Hammer.
