Can you attack members of your own party? If so I could keep him around and just hit him myself whenever he speaks.

If you're lucky Mike, he'll get turned by magic in a battle and then you HAVE to kill him. But maybe you can take a swing at party members. I've not tried it.

I could strip him of all his weapons and armour and send him into battle on his own.

Then he'd die too quickly. You want him to suffer don't you? Chuckle as he gets hit and loses 10 points a hit. Smile when he finally runs away from battle. Laugh uproariously when he gets hit that final time and his body explodes from the impact!

All this animosity towards a game character!

Anyway anyone tried playing some really evil characters - chaotic evil dwarfs, miserable little halflings, dark elves etc. I always end up wandering around as a true neutral fighter/mage or something equally non-commital.

cant remember which game it was but one character I ran into was a druid shapeshifter with a mean werewolf allernate shape. At high XPs you got to become a greater werewolf - serious damage there. You could spend the first half of a battle beating the crap out of them with spells then shift and wade in claws first.

Rather liked the big shapechanging spells in BG2. Great for the 1 moment puny mage, next majorly spell enhanced 16 foot giant.

Heh, I got rid of Dynaheir in the original BG by killing her off, stripped her down to nothing, then sent her up against some Gnolls. Minsc cried for a while, but it was worth it.

You can target any of your own characters just by clicking on a weapon and targeting them normally.

My sources tell me that Paladins can't resurrect, only clerics and mages with the level 9 wish spell.

Yes, he's only a Paladin wannabe but Venom said that Paladins could resurrect people.

And I don't mean that raise the undead spell. I used it in the sewers when Minsc got killed. Lifted him up from the dead. Only had 1 point, but I healed him all up.

Nice. Without spoiling it, I hope, I like the later stages of the game as certain events cost you a great deal.

I can't seem to find time to play, and Shakey didn't help by beating my records on THPS3, that's 4 hours I spent playing that last couple of nights. Great game that.

I only get to play for a couple of hours a night too. It's progressing slowly so far. Then on the weekends I glut myself on NHL 2002 trying to get to the end of my season so I never play then. Plus I'm going to get Medal of Honor this weekend so I can review it for CG.

On an aside, what effect does installing the Throne of Bhaal add on have on regular BG 2 if you haven't finished the original story line?

I'm averaging 2 hours a week. No hours this week so far though.

If you install Throne of Baal and haven't finished BG2 you still get some of the extra features like being able to press tab and have everything light up or whatever it is.

What about the experience cap? Will that change immediately or only when I get to the Throne of Bhaal chapters.

The experience cap changes immediatly, although as Beta says it's pretty high in the regular game and unless you're playing with fewer than 6 characters it's unlikely that you hit it.

The story line doesn't change but you have the option to get to the new tower, Watcher's Keep, much earlier (you could go there as soon as you are in chapter 2 although you're probably gonna find it next to impossible for low level characters).

Btw, I recommend installing the expansion if you have it. There are even few improvements in the interface.

I dumped Yoshimo for Jansen. Lot's of entertainment! Replaces any bards you may have for a storyteller. But then I dumped him for Imoen.

Get rid of that loser Anomen (best by making him fail the paladin quest ). Viconia is much better and hotter!

Dashi: You got that right.

Effects of installing Throne of Bhaal:

1) Nothing.
2) You can press Tab on the screen and all the doors/blue areas where you can click will appear. This is a VERY COOL FEATURE.
3) When you finish SoA, you go straight to ToB without having to mess around with importing or exporting stuff.
4) You can play through watchers keep during SoA.

I seem to be saving before and after every room at the moment. Probably too much but it's all a bit scary.

This thread is so awesome. Half of CG having a massive nerd orgy over this game.

Why dig it up? I started playing BG II this weekend. Six and half years after starting this thread.
