Having just finished SoD - I really must say, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I remember thinking some months ago "Never gonna play SoD, sounds too different" - I was so so wrong, it feels like the perfect game to tie in between BG1/2.
I feel one of the highlights were the large scale battles, I loved the assault on Dragonspear.
Also, Caelar - really cleverly wrote character, I found myself both hating her, and wanting to side with her.
To me, SoD is the expansion to BG1, that ToB SHOULD have been to BG2.
I 'm aware some of the Beamdog staff are registered on here, so I say sirs and madams - Really well done.
