New to this Game! Looking for Guides/Advice/Opinions
I am a long-time BG/BG2 player who is looking for new RPGs to try out. As I have never played any of the other Beamdog titles, I decided to start there!
I am trying to balance doing my research before starting and not getting spoiled. From a quick wikipedia search of NWN, IWD, and Planescape, Planescape caught my attention the most. However, I would be curious to hear how players compare these games to BG. What are the major similarities and differences? I have heard for instance that NWN is more of a MP game and IWD is more combat based - is that accurate? I love BG mostly because of the freedom in making a variety of different parties and the inter-character interaction. While I enjoy a good tricky combat, I am much more of a story based player who loves a good plot and well-rounded characters.
I am also looking for any guides/advice that would be useful to read BEFORE playing for the first time. I know for BG there are one or two spoiler-free guides designed to give tips to beginner players. Anything similar for planescape?
