Contest: Gotta Scalp 'Em All

    Haha, same here. Or at least I get some key party members killed at a point where it becomes difficult to replace them and then I give up and start again.

    in the iron throne there is a guy who holds a bandit scalp on level 2 in chapter 7 i believe

    in the elf song tavern, the ruffians hold a bandit scalp each

    at the end of the catacombs in chapter 6 the last dude you talk to ( before exiting just outside beside the candlekeep walls ) there is a guy looking for Prat and he holds a scalp as well

    I'm on another run and this time I have remembered to call on Officer Vai:

    My last run came to a sorry end. I really thought I was going to go the whole way. Everything was going so well. I was in Chapter 7. I had survived Werewolf Island; I had defeated the Demon Knight in Durlag's Tower and so I headed for Ulgoth's Beard where . . .
    I promptly got backstabbed by a hidden cult assassin.

    I have just cleared the Bandit Camp on my latest run. 89 scalps so far. I'm hoping to break the one hundred mark this time.

    Not gonna participate. In one run I had every inventory slot of every character PACKED with those things. I legit just needed the gold for a magic item, so I was sleeping in Larswood and it would constantly wake me by monsters. Again, 6 characters, full stacks of scalps, maxxed them out before VERRRRRRRRY slowly hauling my butt back to Beragost.

    Maybe the bandits have distinctive hair styles or tattoos on their heads. Maybe Officer Vai is terrified of this lunatic who keeps bringing her bits of dead people and just pays you in the hope that you'll go away.

    Actually, in BG:EE, bandit scalps are in a unique item category: Tattoos. No other item outside of Planescape Torment is in this category. Officer Vai's shop only buys items in the Tattoo category.

    There was a bumper crop of bandits on this run and I finally broke the hundred mark. I've got 114 after clearing out Cloakwood.

    Damn. Even with the few scalps I can pick up in Baldur's Gate I'm still not going to catch you. Early on in my run I got surrounded by 10 bandits in an ambush and ran for the edge of the map. Regretting it now. I should have fought them and at least I would be getting close.

    there's always next time :)

    On my latest run I have just cleared the bandit camp but I have only got 77 scalps so far. Mind you most of these seem to have come from Black Talon Elites, because I have got more +1 Arrows and Arrows of Ice than I am ever likely to shoot (the only archer in my current party is Minsc and he only uses his bow when enemies are running away in panic and then only because he can't be bothered to chase them).

    ah, it looks like we have a tie, i wasn't sure what the record was so this was what i got last run as well

    and i only hit that amount because i went back to the iron throne building in chapter 7 and there was a dude on the second floor who had a scalp on him, so if it wasn't for that i would have hit only 129 which looks like it was the exact same as i got previously

    I just hit 128. And that's on my current unmodded run; my usual collection of mods adds scalps to a bunch of enemies that act as bandits but don't drop them normally.

    That does include a ten-bandit ambush in chapter 7, as I was traveling around getting the best prices on selling things after Durlag's Tower.
