What IE games are you playing and where are you at?
« on: January 08, 2007, 07:51:30 AM »
I'm playing BG2, and this is how things went and go:

My PC: I started out as a Swashbuckler and raised my pick pocketing skill to 225, for reasons you‚??ll see shortly. I put *** in Two Weapon Style in * in Katana‚??s. 

I took Minsc, Jaheria and Yoshimo with me.  I used SK to change Minsc into a Berserker and give him ***** with the Spear and * with the Halberd. Jaheria had her proficiencies jiggled around too, with ** in Quarterstaff, Scimitar and Sling. Yoshimo was Dual Classed into a Fighter with **** in Axes.

Once out of Chateau Irenicus, I used my pick pocketing skills in Waukeen‚??s Promenade to claim my five fingered discount on a wide range of goods. At the weapons shop in the just past the Adventurer‚??s Mart and the Mart itself, I got two +1 Slings, a TON of bullets, a bunch of scrolls which included Limited Wish, and a scroll case. Before leaving the Promenade, I visited the Den of the Seven Vales and took a few potions and coins from the group of people on the first floor. After the obligatory visit to Galen, I went to the Government District to pick up Shar-Teel and returned to Galen‚??s house to visit his fence where I packed every inventory slot I had free with +1 Chain Mail and Splint Mail armor, as well as +1 Katana‚??s, Halberd‚??s and Two-Handed Swords. For some reason the fence won‚??t accept fenced goods so a visit to the Docks was in order where the Shadow Thieves fence had no such problems and I walked away with a large amount of coin.

After that it was off to Trademeet by way of the City Gate (where I grabbed Kagain‚??s Troll Cinder Axe) and I picked up Tashia, who will be both my magic user and romantic interest, before taking the Druid Grove quest which got me up to level 10 as a Swashbuckler. I then Dual Classed to a Fighter and put my initial **** into Katana‚??s, and because I have a +1 Katana as well as the Shield of Harmony and a few other trinkets to get an AC of -9 I felt primed for the rest of the game.

I completed the de‚??Arnise Keep, picking up the Flail of Ages, the Frostreaver Battle Ax, the ‚??Giantkin‚?? War Hammer, the Elven Court Bow and the Axe of Resistance. Yoshimo got the axes while Minsc got the bow to make him my back-up missile weapon user.

Right now, I‚??m poised to undertake the Rescue the Slaves quest in the Copper Coronet.

My Party:

My PC: Swashbuckler Level 10 Dual Classed to Fighter, Level 7
Yoshimo: Bounty Hunter Level 10 Dual Classed to Fighter, Level 8
Shar-Teel: Blademaster Level 12
Jaheria: Fighter/Druid Multi-Class, Level 8/10
Tashia: Sorcerer Level 11
Minsc: Berserker Level 9

I'm playing Baldur's Gate Tutu, to do a quick crash test on my mod before I add the finishing touches and make it available as a public alpha. Yes, I'm really playtesting it, as opposed to just checking the important bits, because there's some scripts that are fairly hard to cheat and I don't feel like taking the trouble when a little patience will do just as well.

My party:

Alana, female Undead Hunter
Imoen, for most of the time, and because she's got a lot to say later
Gavin, well, duh
Ajantis, because *he's* got a lot to say later and I need a tank
Jaheira and Khalid for now, but will be swapping for Minsc and Dynaheir in a little while, because I need a mage.

 Is this discussion limited to IE games?

This thread is, yes. Ye Dwarven Hammer would be the best place for non-IE games.

If yes then this thread should be renamed. If not then I will move it to Ye Dwarven Hammer :)

I'm not playing any IE games atm. My life is getting sucked up by an online RPG.
When a man speaks and there is no woman to hear him, is he still wrong?

For the faithful romantic, no explanation is necessary. For the unbeliever, no explanation is possible.

I use a flamethrower on my stains.

I am playing IWD2.

I'm in Chapter 6, just about to start exploring the towers. My party is around level 14-15. I went throught the whole game with this party:

Villiana - a CN Elven Rogue

Sir Nord - my mentor and a paladin who is trying not to give up on me. He just got Holy Avenger, and was hilareously happy about it!
Hildury, his half-orc squier, who is sitill struggling to understand the difference between good and evil
Diriel - the craziest murderous elven druid out there
Jaemal - an aasimar sorcerer :)
and
Madam Salomeya - a half-elven bard who just told me that Sevred Hand is a place of great historical and cultural creepiness.

Once I finish the game, I'll be working harder than the Old Man by the Sea to get the interjections done for Chpater 6 and do the new ending for the game and epilogues, etc.

So, I am kindda reluctant to kick off my last playing session, because it's THE END!

I'm still (for nearly six weeks already) standing before the Throne of Blood. Just can't put myself together to fight Melissan on hard diff.

Me - human multi (cheating, but absolutely non-profitable for me, just wanted to be human) F22/M19
Korgan 35
Vicky 38
Edwin 28
Valen (tuned down, no longer killing machine) 21/25
Sarevok 35

While I was dealing with essence pools I discovered that PC had no "Hardiness" HLA. And he needed many XP for level up. About an hour I was perverting with learning new spells, but it wasn't enough (without erasing and rewriting). Finally I dug from scroll case the Limited Wish. Thanks gods I recalled about vampires from that! And thanks gods I had several LWs with me that time!

 Baldur's Gate with EasyTutu/BG1 NPC Project

 I've just finished the Nashkel Mines, and I'm about to head over to the carnival to free a certain nordic battle-priestess from her stoney slumber.

 My party currently consists of

 Raven CN human thief (she uses Safana's portrait but edited so her hair and all her clothing are black)
 Kagain
 Khalid
 Jaheira
 Garrick
 Xan

 I've just about had enough of the obnoxious Harper Harpy so she and the husband are about to get the boot
