    Dark Sun was ana amazing setting. It's a shame it only works really well in second edition rules.

    Have to agree with you there. Dark Sun turned the arbitrary class limitations of 2E, and its leveling system, into something central to the setting. If everyone can suddenly do everything, if there is a hard level cap of 40, the worldbuilding of Dark Sun breaks down. It's a strictly 2e setting in my opinion, but one of my all time favorites.

    Technically, Ogres in Baldur's Gate 1 have 16 intelligence. Even though they aren't portrayed as such, most characters are less intelligent than ogres.

    Bears too! Somebody once wrote a fic based on the possibilities opened by that.

    There are many sites for finding good names for characters, but this one is superb.

    Could be the other way around. Obviously all our favorite movies and stuff don't just hold a microphone up to a dragon to get their dragon sounds.

    Wonder how many iconic dragons have been sampled from an alligator?

    A wild boar also makes quite a scary sound if you disturb one in the jungle. You hear the sound of them running through the undergrowth and that is followed by a scary roar. Apparently it does that when it is scared. I wish that I'd known!

    King Kong was a backwards tiger roar iirc. Foley art is kinda underappreciated. I think the cave troll in LotR was 3 different animal sounds?

    Boars sound like a demon out of hell and they have the personality to match. Can be vicious things.

    When I went to Nepal in the 80s they were running through the undergrowth two or three yards away from me, but I couldn't see them. It was that which made them scary!

    Last year one was following me about two yards away wanting to be fed. The guide was ushering me away knowing how dangerous they can be! (A sloth bear came equally close but I was in a jeep. No problem. It too was after bananas.) They have lost their fear of people which is now a problem!

    I saw a rhino attack another. It made be glad of the vegetation between us!!

    Even domesticated animals can be dangerous. A sow attacked a friend of mine who had to vault a gate to escape, and a cow killed a friend's father. :(

    Sorry for acting the know-it-all, but isn't "namaste" Sanskrit?

  • Montresor_SPMontresor_SP Member Posts: 2,165
    No, it's Hindu.

    Namaste

    One of Grace's spell chants is Shiawase which means "Good fortune".

    (I don't speak either language - or Sanskrit - but I've a very good friend called Google. :smile: )

    odd about dorn. i knew about the no leavening thing in tob as i guess bioware thought as it's the end of the journey party members should not leave.

    beamdog seemed to not understand that as tob has a conflict between rassad and seravok.

    I find the Rasaad/Sarevok conflict more consistent and believable than ToB's blanket "everyone gets along now", personally.

    Did you know that in Icewind Dale 2 on Heart of Fury Mode, the basic goblins in the prologue have 157 HP? IWD2's Heart of Fury Mode is utterly ridiculous.
