Theme Pick any moment in Baldur's Gate (preferred) or Baldur's Gate II (accepted) that is full of pathos and/or heroic tension, render it unto utter desolation through some awkward epic fail, and capture the disillusion and disbelief on everyone's face and body mimicry.
Example: What would happen if Gorion beat Sarevok during their initial confrontation? @AndreaColombo and I thought about this and imagined Sarevok reloading his save with an anime-style sweatdrop on his head. The cutscene is an epic moment in which Sarevok's supposed to win; Sarevok losing the battle and reloading is an awkward epic fail.
Ending Time This round will end at 12:00 P.M. CET on January 23rd, which is exactly two weeks from now (click the link to see the time and date for your time zone).
