    Today was the first time I saw the moment in the animation of an enemy dying when their armour falls off. It turns out you literally knock their legs from under them and their feet stick up in the air as they hit the ground and lose their armour.

    Yesterday was the first time one of my parties defeated Tahazzar in a single go without having to (ab)use the portals. I was honestly a bit surprised, since Ka'rashur's party required a few exits to heal and rest. I think a big part of it was Jaheira managed to summon some werebears to distract attention, but Isra and Sirene managed to fillet Tahazzar pretty quickly. Sirene has Carsomyr and Isra has Purifier, so they were definitely properly equipped. Prebuffing pretty much just consisted of Remove Fear and a few potions.

    Once there was a bit of a break, Imoen and my PC started summoning elementals to help with the cleanup. The only hitch was that those stupid quasits took forever to finally kill. They kept popping in and out so fast nothing could land a hit half the time.

    The Wraith Demon, on the other hand... Jeez I hate that room. Thank the gods that Jaheira had Harper's Call and Heal memorized.

    It's remarkable how often "charm enemy, pickpocket plot token" is viable. Including that one spider in Landrin's home.

    Does that mean you can get the spider's body by pickpocketing it? That's a pretty cool trick.

    Exactly. If you want to reproduce this yourself, the spider with the body is the one that starts second from the left.

    Landrin's dialogue when you turn it in talks about the other spiders leaving now that the big one is dead. If only she knew ...

    Makes me wonder if you can pickpocket Neb's head. Now that would be the epitome of pickpocket skills!

    I've got an idea that in original BG1 you could pickpocket bandits' scalps (but that might be another thing I am misremembering).

    Pickpocketing bandit scalps ... not in current BGEE. They have the "can't steal" flag set, systematically. I wouldn't be surprised if that flag didn't exist in the original.

    Neb's head is in the body armor slot, which can't be stolen from.
