Say something nice about beamdog or SOD

    The fact that my old companions are walking and talking with new banters.

    That I can recruit more companions earlier in the game is great as well. It always annoyed me that you had to wait for a very long time for some of them in BG 1. Makes it easier to get who you want and the rest will hang around in camp.

    Fitting music that fits well with the rest of the saga.

    And now also that shield and bow thing I didn't know about. Sod needs a did you know thread.

    Well said. SoD is on a par with BG1 -- while there are some weak individual encounters over the course of the game, it held my interest and felt like an organic continuation of the BG1 story. Given how much Beamdog's original content has improved from the Enhanced Edition releases to SoD, it's possible to imagine BG3 reaching the very high bar of BG2-level content, which would be great both in its own right and to get D&D and the Forgotten Realms back into the CRPG spotlight.

    The way I can play my beloved games whenever I am holed up in a hotel somewhere, or even on a long train trip is really nice.

    The items presented in SoD are interesting enough that I started a new playthrough just to see how the classes previously ignored (bard, monk) work now they have got some love.

    The goblin shaman is so well done! She does suffer a bit from Torment-esque fixed sprites, but nothing that can't be overlooked.

    Switching sword and shield to bow was so impossible that I did not even try it, must also try bow and two weapons.

    Now if only there were a few more bards (preferably neutral female) and a certain recruitable Tiefling npc from another Infinity engine game, it would be absolute bliss.

    the fact you can go from bg1npc project and into sod and nothing seems wrong.

    It's pretty darn good. I guess most people's expectations were unrealistic. The game was much better than I expected.

    It;s actual new BG content, with some interesting NPCs.

    i don't like is how your party members don't have anything to say when the hooded man is around. besides imoen they act like he is not there.

    BG2, if you import, you lose your stuff. HotU, if you import, you lose your stuff.

    SoD, if you import, you keep your stuff! So long as it wasn't in a container, anyway.

    That's one thing I like about SoD.
