So some of you old timers may recall I have done this a few times since the Interplay days and as I turned 71 in Oct I decided I was up for another run after putting it aside for a few years of Pillars - I tossed some ideas around in my head and eventually decided to make it a BG2EE run - I made a start in BGEE first but I wanted to add some mods and discovered I was not much more tech savvy then ever and it seem my current computer and Windows 10 are a bit contrary about mods. I was unable to find an address for my "game files" and finally gave up after making enough errors to warrant a re-install of BG1.
Then I thought well hell I'll just play BG2EE without mods but then once I got my first party through Chez Irenicus I wanted to make some changes and I thought well I could just add Dungeon be gone and replay - I mean that one has to work doesn't it? Well short story is NO it doesn't same old nonsense (Failed install - not game files)...
Gave up - I now have the second party in Amn and we are about ready to rock & roll. Which is what I really came to talk about in the first place - don't laugh - you may be this old someday too!
So here they are Jedidia and the Old School Gang
Jedidia - Male CN - Half-orc - Fighter/Thief 8/9 - 19-18-19-11-9-10 - Long sword++ Scimitar++ TWF ++
Pauline Bloodletter - Female CN - Dwarf - Barbarian 8 - 18/99-17-19-14-9-6 - Halbred++ Katana++ Mace++
Galuu- Male TN - Half Orc - Shaman 8- 19-18-19-13-14-8 Axe+ Staff+ Short Bow+ Sling+
Elena Gruntbustle - Female CN - Gnome - Cleric/Illusionist 7/7 12-16-16-19-17-8 -Staff+ Sling+
Jaheira is currently with us and we sent Minsc packing from the cellars - I am thinking about keeping Jahs until the Harper quest but not certain about that. Other options I'm considering would be Dorn, Korgan, Edwin, Viccy, and I'm thinking Imoen will jump on our bandwagon when she comes back also.
I'm not very adept at playing evil - definitely not "stupid evil" - we will probably offset dirty deeds with not so dirty and occasional bribes at the temples to keep the wanted posters down. Playing on Core rules shooting for NO RELOADS - let the adventures begin!
Comments and suggestions always appreciated!
