I mostly play with highly charismatic
Elven or Human Fighter/Mages or Sorcerers. This time, I thought I would do a bit different, and decided to play with a Dwarven Fighter/Cleric, and I can notice some subtle differences in NPC interactions. Last time when I played with a 18 charisma
Elven F/M, everyone was behaving very nicely with him, but now with my 16 charisma
dwarven F/C (who's still pretty charismatic for a dwarf), some NPCs seem to be somewhat grumpy and not-so-nice.
When I took Landrin's Spider Infestation quest the previous time (with the charismatic Elven F/M), she gave me 6 bottles of antidotes
in the beginning of the quest, but I didn't get them this time (with the dwarven F/C). Is it because of his mediocre
charisma (I can't say 16 is poor
) or just because he's a dwarf
? I was also wondering if it is due to his having the cleric class (which has the Slow Poison spell, though you can't get it that early). Can someone verify this and share their own experiences?
Another thing I noticed was that Hull gave Charname (Elf) about 50 gold for fetching his sword the previous time and was very happy, but now he just gave Charname (Dwarf) 10 gold and said "Gorion's a fool for trying to bring you up...". Now, that's really disappointing
since I'm role-playing, and not just power-gaming.
I also wonder if it would help if I could get the stat tome and raise his charisma to 17. Any other suggestions?
