Tashia came through once again in the battle with Draconis. After using Cloudkill, Fireball and Cloud of Pestilence, the latter from Jaheira, to get Draconis to change into his dragon form, Tashia summoned Peanelian and then cast Time Stop. With Peanelian  charging forward for the initial distraction, Tashia cast Comet and then Imprisonment. Once Time Stop wore off, Comet did 50 HP of damage and then Imprisonment kicked in because Draconis vanished leaving only his head behind.

I think we need far more drastic methods to deal with spammers :evil
Red hot pokers shoved where the sun doesn't shine?

Much more drastic  :evil
More drastic than that?

Well, something involving a sledgehammer and the genitals of the spammer in question springs to mind...

I've almost reached Sendai in her enclave. Along the way, I finished off Odamaron with virtual ease. As soon as I entered his den, I had Tashia cast Time Stop and then cast Comet and Bigby's Crushing Hand at Odamaron and when time resumed they did big damage. Pierce Shield was cast as the rest of my party rushed at the Odamaron and, with his defences down, the Lich was dead inside thirty seconds with no damage at all  to my party.

My party is just about to enter Sendai's Enclave.

PC: Level 10 Swashbuckler/Level 24 Fighter (Dual Class)
Shar-Teel: Level 27 Bladeslinger
Minsc: Level 26 Bezerker
Imoen: Level 7 Thief/Level 20 Mage (Dual Class)
Tashia: Level 22 Sorcerer
Jaheira: Level 14 Druid/Level 17 Fighter (Multi-Class)

Imoen has just under 4M XP while everyone else is over that figure, and Shar-Teel is almost at 5M.

My PC is dual-wielding Celestial Fury +5 and Yamato +4 and with armor and other magic items he has an AC of -15. Shar-Teel's main weapon is Soul Reaver +4, though I'm going to upgrade that once I get the Heart of the Damned(?). Minsc is using the Throwing Unicorn Spear for a missle weapon and alternating between the Staff of the Ram and Wave for a melee weapon. Imoen has Firetooth as well as the Tuigan Bow for the range attack. Tashia has some great spells, including Wail of the Banshee, Time Stop, Summon Planatear, Dragon's Breath, Comet, etc. I love to pause right at the start of any fight and have Tashia let off with Comet because she can do some serious damage. Jaheira has the Girdle of Stone Giant Strength and The Fulcrum Club, which is +4 and gives her ***** in Clubs, so is a good melee fighter, though I use her with a Sling, **, for the most part as she brings up the rear, both to protect Tashia and to provide back-up when required.

Ok, if a smuggler won't accept fenced goods, who will?

Surely there has to be someone in ToB who accepts fenced goods, or it makes no sense to be able to steal.

Does the smuggler in Amkehran accept fenced goods?

I'm in Saradush and want to make use of my five fingered discount in the tavern.

Fireball is a good all-purpose spell that not only knocks enemies for six, but also as the added bonus of disrupting any spellcasting going on.

When I played IWD, Haste was my spell of choice because it enabled me to get through a lot of battles with a little more ease than I would have otherwise, and it made a lot of difference.

Is it powergaming to make one last trawl through SoA to pick up any last XP you can only get there before going on to ToB?

I like the beginning of ToB's music. It sounds like a alteration of the first game's music.
The ToB theme music is fantastic. It really does sound like something you would hear as the intro credits to a movie roll. In fact, I think the trumpet part sounds very much like the music you hear during the intro credits to the film Total Recall.

Hi. My name is SheldonTurnip, and I'm addicted to Baldur's Gate 2.

"Hi Sheldon!"

I got IWD in 2000 as soon as it came out, having long wanted to play a D&D game. The same quick rush to purchase went for Baldur's Gate 2, and I even got the big box collector's edition. I was attracted to Baldur's Gate 2 by the expanded rules and the more polished engine and graphics.

I got Baldur's Gate around that time, but I can't play it anymore because the third disc has a scratch that prevents the Nashkel Mines from loading which means I'm stuck.

Just over a year and a half ago, through the magic of eBay, I purchased the IWD 'bumper pack', which had IWD, HoW, IWD 2 and the music CD. I still dabble with IWD on occasion, and while I did give IWD 2 a serious try, and got about a third of the way into it (I think I got to just after where you reunite the two scouts; you meet the female one first, and have to trawl through a mountain of goblins and such and end up finding her partner), a combination of feeling too linear and ordered as well as a near-total disdain for 3E rules meant I couldn't stay the course and I stopped playing. One day, through boredom more than anything, I might give it another go, either picking things up from where I left off or starting anew, but I don't think that will happen anytime soon.

My game of choice is Baldur's Gate 2, and as soon as I've completed one game, I'm back into another.

My name is SheldonTurnip, and I'm addicted to Baldur's Gate 2.

"Thank you Sheldon!"

Chaotic Evil

A chaotic evil character does whatever his greed, hatred, and lust for destruction drive him to do. He is hot-tempered, vicious, arbitrarily violent, and unpredictable. If simply out for whatever he can get, he is ruthless and brutal. If he is committed to the spread of evil and chaos, he is even worse. Thankfully, his plans are haphazard, and any groups he joins or forms are poorly organized. Typically, chaotic evil people can only be made to work together by force, and their leader lasts only as long as he can thwart attempts to topple or assassinate him. The demented sorcerer pursuing mad schemes of vengeance and havoc is chaotic evil. Chaotic evil is sometimes called "demonic" because demons are the epitome of chaotic evil. Chaotic evil is the most dangerous alignment because it represents the destruction not only of beauty and life but of the order on which beauty and life depend.

Ah well.

Raising my pick pocketing skill to 225 paid dividends when it came to bringing Imoen into my party. Just before going off to Spellhold, I stole every scroll from Galoomp and most of the stock of the spell lady at the back of the Adventurer's Mart. Fast forward to Spellhold and Yoshimo has bailed on me and Imoen has taken his place. One Potion of Genius and a bevy of learned scrolls later and I raked in over 300,000 XP.

Life is good.
