    Confession: I only sided with Bodhi once, but if talking about XP rewards and that stuff, siding with Bodhi is much better.

    Confession: I know how to find Kangaxx, but I have never actually killed him because I can only stomach fighting demiliches about once in a saga playthrough and Watcher's Keep usually fills that role.

    Confession: I know how to get Crom Faeyr, but I have only ever done it once because I enjoy fighting Mind Flayers only slightly more than I like fighting demiliches.

    Confession: I have not completed a BioWare romance since 2002.

    Confession: I like Tashia better than Kelsey.

    Confession: I think both Tashia and Kelsey are nice enough, but they definitely show their age- and use Interjections sometimes when I would rather they use I_C_T, so I don't usually install them.

    (I like Adrian, what little I've played for him, for my sorc needs.)

    Confession: I find Rasaad adorable, but I think he exists in some strange world of his own imaginings half the time.

    Confession: I still, a decade and some later, resent Bioware for not finishing the Haer'Dalis romance and the Valygar romance. I wish Beamdog had finished Valygar's, at least.

    I do, too!

    And like...I can imagine in the Valygar romance, there would be an option where Suna Seni could be the, eh...maid of honour. And when you decide on this, Valygar says, "I bet that shall do the trick!". I like Valygar.

    Confession: I always side with Bodhi, because I think, "Well, I am a Child of Murder, and vampires are awfully deathy!".

    Confession: I didn't side with Bodhi only when I wanted to keep Mazzy in my party. Hate fighting vampires more than it's necessary.

    Easy, side with Bodhi before recruiting Mazzy (EE might have fixed that, though.)

    @SCARY_WIZARD Have you played BG2 Romantic Encounters? It has a Valygar romance of sorts, spanning through BG2 and ToB: in which he loves you, but is afraid to commit because of his curse. In ToB, you can plan to run away with him, and have a happy ending together.

    I wish he had a full romance with flirt packs and master wraith encounters and everything, but I'm pretty satisfied with that. It's good.

    -Chanelle
    -Guildmistress Busya
    -Sheri
    -Anishai

    Confession: I now picture Anishai as a flirty Monk thanks to Romantic Encounters. :( ... :D

    Confession: I've never killed/fought Kangaxx.

    I Confession: I tend to kill Kangaxx using a Protection from Magic scroll on myself, and just smack him to death.

    - Boooooooh!!! Blackraven that's so lame! Here the game offers you the opportunity for an epic fight, and you cheese your way to the Ring of Gaxx. Bah, you don't even deserve that ring!
    If I could, I'd just equip everybody capable of using them with wands of illumination and then burn the extremely powerful three-charge abilities on him. >:D

    Confession: I play melee heavy parties because I'm lazy and suck at micromanaging my party sometimes. The first time I beat ToB I had Keldorn, Korgan, Mazzy, Sarevok, Anomen, and my sorcerer Charname. I was bad so I didn't use a lot of self-buffs which made Keldorn's dispel almost entirely in my favour. We got by on just wiping out magical defences and swarming them. I was so bad. Shit, I still am pretty much :P

    Confession: I never killed Kangaxx using a scroll of Protection from Magic. It is easier to use Protection from Undead and blast him in pieces very easily, in both of is forms.

    @meagloth I'll see your traps and raise you a 'Protection From Undead'-scroll.

    Edit: ah, @CrevsDaak was quicker. :p

    @Empyrial‌ this describes mt first play-through to a T. Undead Hunter, Keldorn, Minsc, Sarevok, Anomen hit things, Imoen does other stuff.

    Confession: I have never in my life used a Protection from Magic or Undead scroll....
    in fact the only scroll I have ever used was to save Branwen. The rest are for memorizing and gold.

    I've always found using a Scroll of Protection from Undead a bit sketchy. According to the description "'it creates 3' radius protection circle around the target protecting it from all physical but not magical attacks from undead". Is that description incorrect?
    I fear Kangaxx more for his magical than for his physical attacks and therefore always opt for a Protection from Magic scroll.

    EDIT: Could someone point out how Protection from Undead works? It seems I'm mistaken about what it does.

    Confession: I made my first Swashbuckler in BGEE.

    Confession: I'm actually fine playing BGEE without the BG1 NPC Project.

    Confession: I'm actually more bothered by the fact that I can't play BG2EE with Kivan. Q_Q

    Confession: I'm currently playing BG2EE with a Cleric/Mage, and Adrian (NPC mod) will totally stay in the party.

    @Blackraven‌ The protection from undead scroll also makes you undetected by undeads. They won't be abble to target you or cast spells at you. It you protect you from an area of effect spell, but it will protect you from imprisonnement because it's single targetted.

    On topic:
    Confession I never used spell immunity on anyone. When I had to tank a demilich, i just summoned stuff and recruited other NPCs in my party so they would get imprisonned instead of me. (in vanilla BG2 and TOB) I never knew about spell immunity or the protection scrolls. Haven't gottent that far yet in BG2EE, but in the Black Pits 2 i just stopped time and attacked with energy blades or melf minute metor, while my other characters got imprisonned.

    Confession:I just temporarily abondoned a game instead of doing the mind flayer dungeon in the underdark in favor of playing Shadowrun Returns. I hate mind flayers. So much. I honestly wonder how anyone doing a no reload challenge can deal with them. One failed saving throw and everything is ruined forever.

    @Necomancer Immunities. You can get a nice Amulet from the Beholder's Lair that makes you immune to Psiconics for one turn.

    @Necomancer‌ - I rarely do the mind flayer dungeon...

    Confession: I rarely do the Mind Flayer Dungeon in the Underdark.

    A not related to BG confession, depending on who you talk to anyway.

    Confession: I wish @LiamEsler‌ would come back for the forums aren't the same without him.

    @Necomancer Confession: I used to be pretty okay with mindflayers until I found out that berserk (and the like) still doesn't help when your intelligence is low. I can't remember the amount of times Minsc got his brain devoured...

    Confession: I am a completionist. I.e. I really REALLY need to do every single quest that is reasonable within Charname's character/alignment.

    Confession: on my last playthrough I forgot the Twisted Rune quest and the mindflayers in the sewers (BG2). Also didn't do Jan Jansen's quests, but that was because he had disappeared from the government district.

    @Necomancer thieves and rangers have an easy time: boots of speed + immunities (through Chaotic Commands or items). Hide, backstab, run, hide backstab, run etc. Works best/fastest with good backstabbers, but even with non-backstabbers (Swashies, Rangers other than Stalkers).

    Confession: I've never played a female CHARNAME. Sorry, but all the male voicesets of BG2 except MALE5/Default are better than the females'. MALE1 is the best though.

    Weeeeird. I literally only like Male1 and Male2 and overall think the female voices are way better. Male2 is the best ever though.

    Confession : I'm always afraid that some kind of bug allows Jondalar to kill you in the prologue of BG1.

    Confession : Sorcerer is one of my favorite class, and still i have never played one.

    True with me too! Still Bards > Sorcerers.
    And yeah I think that you CAN kill Jondalar, I once tried killing him with ADHW, and it worked. Same goes for Jospil in the tutorial (for exception that if you kill Jospil you can't end the tutorial).
