    Unpopular opinion: That's not an unpopular opinion.

    I can well imagine a fighter/mage when his defensive spells wear out or have been dispelled running away to a safe location whilst his comrades continue to fight, so that he can put on some armour. No mage in their right mind would continue to fight without at least some protection.

    Well, it takes quite some time to put armor on, from at least 10 minutes for (studded) leather to 1 hour or more in case of full plate, so its more likely that your fighter/mage would realistically put on some armor for the next battle instead of one in progress.

    Here's my unpopular opinion: The Rise of Skywalker didn't ruin Star Wars. Star Wars when never "a thing", because they had like 1 good movie. There was nothing to ruin, because it was all just stroke of luck. Prequels showed that there is nowhere to go, and if Thrawn Trilogy is the best EU can offer, then entire franchise was basically born dead.
    Thus I have spoken.

    Hey now, this is "unpopular opinons" not "objectively wrong" opinions ;)

    Only the original trilogy was spot on. The rest was more in the can-be-entertaining category.
    But I'd watch it anyway.

    Getting back to the armor thing: BG1 had quick weapon slots for that precise reason.

    All we have to do is extend "can't change armor during combat" to all equipment - you can pass loot around, but you can't ready any of it. Including potions and arrows.

    My unpopular opinion is that custom NPC mods for the BG Series are terrible. The majority of joinable NPC mods (for me) are either poorly written, have poor quality voicing or are not voiced at all, are full of bugs, are overpowered with high stats or special items/abilities and finally are just boring in comparison to the real NPC's (even the most boring or annoying of them such as Nalia or Valygar).

    NPC mods are silly. You should always use me instead.

    In BG1 you ARE a mod and a very good one too, even if you are on the small side. I suppose that is to be expected considering your race. :D

    Oh I had forgotten about my appearance there, how absent minded of me. Still any non-Aerie related mods are lacklustre as they don't feature the best NPC in the entire series (me o:) ).

    It's a shame that mod doesn't make her a companion, though I can't fathom how ridiculously OP she would be after leveling up through BG1 and BG2. The end battle in ToB would more or less be the rest of the party kicking back with brewskis watching Aerie do all the work!

    @Aerie By that, do you mean: set on fire, intoxicated, exciting, or excellent?

  • Wise_GrimwaldWise_Grimwald Member Posts: 2,951
    I actually like the Ajantis romance.

    Did you mean "Anomen"? :) Because there will be no takers disagreeing that mod "Ajantis" is good.

    I thought Ajantis was unpopular too. I'm clearly wrong.

    Intoxicated, so basically I'm saying he's a cool guy who parties/drinks/get high.

    I'd say every extended companion is a loved one (especially when extension includes romance). (Even additional NPCs (yes, even Sandrah) have their faithful fanbase.) And Ajantis-mod is objectively good one.

    i never hear anyone that hates the ajantis romance. people are just happy there is someone else thats not anomen.

    thats why most romances are for female charnames more so they male ones [ altho this has changed in recent years it's now more balanced] they did not like the fact anomen is the only option so they made their own.

    I like Anomen's development, but my major problem is that metagaming is required to justify taking him. Otherwise, for all charname knows, he is just an arrogant and self righteous jerk.
