soloing is where you start a NEW game with a character. you dont use ANY cheats, and you go through the game with THAT character. you dont get any npc's, or anything of the sort. you try and beat the game with ONE character. quite easy with a sorceror i might add. or a paladin. or thief, lol.

thats kinda the point. some people do it for the challenge, some people cos they hate all the NPCs, and other cos their bored with the character interactions and have heard everything already/

anyway, most times one character who happens to specialise in a certain situation does most of the work anyway. nalia is my dragon slayer for instance. yes, really. the annoying do-gooder. the one with time stop, improved alacrity, lower resistance, pierce mage, magic missile, horrid wilitng, summon planetar, mordakainens sword. (read :- basic dragon slaying spellset [img]smile.gif[/img] )

so in soloing the challenge is adapting your character to the situation rather than moving the best one forward.

Vampires?

There is always the good old Protection from Undead scrolls.

Paladins eat Vampires for snacks thanks to Turn Undead.

Mages/Sorcerers can go invisible and destroy them with summons and spells.

Thieves backstab them to death.

Liches?

Protection from Undead scrolls again, Aduzedge, Mace of Disruption +1(2), etc... ...

This might sound stupid, but how do you get rid of those early characters. I told jaheria and minsc off, but Imoen sticks around. How do you drop her so that you are truly "solo"?

Either attack her and get her down to 1 hp and she will leave or choose reform party and drop her. She will protest but will leave.

Is it ethical to attack my sister . Thnx I will try that.

PS. During a solo am I supposed to use a guy that made it through already and cheat to get the boots of speed and bag of holding, cause I started it with a new character and I am getting my ass whupped.

You could try soloing on an easier game setting if its to hard so you can get used to it.
