    I'd take pants and a shirt/jacket every day of the week over a robe.
    personal taste, and every taste is fine.
    but even being a male i used to wear a garment skirt or a lungi as i like the air running free around my legs.
    also in many hot parts of the world, like the north part of africa and the arab region people wear something similar to a robe, because it is more effective to protect against the sun and hot weather then pants and shirt. if is cold you can use the same robe over some other cloths.

    further more there are no shirts of vecna or of the archmage, and i was comparing a robe to a full plate, not to paints and shirt that give no protection against physical attacks at all...

    I have to imagine you wear the robe over the pants, shirt, etc anyway.

    It's not like we're left to imagine that fighters are naked under their armor. Monks aren't running around nude simply because they wear neither armor nor robe. The equipment you wear for battle goes on over your clothes.

    With the exception of Minsc. That's why he always suffers from "a bad case of armor chafe".

    I suppose that people who find a robe over clothes unbearably hot don't live in the same climate zone as I do.

    Maybe enchanted full plate is so comfortable that you can sleep, hike, run and swim in it. Better than Stoneskin, anyway.

    Yeah I know you did and my comment was more generally meant rather than a direct comment towards yours, sorry if it came out the wrong way. It's just always a bit interesting to see the old trope of robes being considered better for dexterous motions (ie not restricting movement) when long, flowy robes get in the way a lot more than tailored clothing. And if you can magically enhance a robe to give boons, you could most certainly also magically enhance other types of cloth, hence why I'd rather have a pair of pants with improved alacrity and a nice shirt or jacket. At least the sleeves of my jacket won't get in my way.

    Same with jedis, their robes often look a lot more restricting than the opposite. It's just a bit of pokey poke towards that old trope.

    Robes don't restrict movement in any way. They are loose and flowing garments. They do, however, cause destruction around you if your not careful. Clearing low tables and the like with a single pass. I've knocked coffee cups over on more than one occasion.

    maybe the next page can be "bg logic and sex"
    a starting point can be what happens if your wild mage charname has been transformed into a bunny by a surge right before the rest when sex happens between him and aerie or viconia?
    i am sure that the avariel will find him really cute and be very pleased, but i wonder what can be the reaction of the drow... ;)

    and how long will be the ears of aerie's son? the elves have long pointed ears, but if the father is a rabbit probably quayle's ears should be hilariously long :D

    Usually in such scenarios, it does not matter. The traits for the child are drawn from the parent's true form rather than whatever it was polymorphed into. This is how half-dragons still wind up being half-dragon despite the draconic partner usually polymorphing into a form more suitable for the non-draconic partner during mating.

    Of course, if you and your druid partner decide to get creative and make use of your Wild Shape during sex... Well, whatever two consenting D&D adults get up to in the wilderness is none of my affair. ;)

    To go at it like rabbits can finally become literally true.

    Maybe we need to create a new thread called Baldur's Gate Logic Thread Logic where we discuss the illogicalities in the Baldur's Gate Logic thread and roll our eyes.

    I think this would create an infinite loop and cause an overflow on the forum databases... :)

    Put on your Santa hats and ugly Christmas sweaters and come join me on this year's Christmas board. Don't forget to grab a cup of virtual hot cocoa on the way out.

    @shabadoo , are you a priest?

    @Arvia, nope not a priest. Just delusions of "Heff"dom. A robe is my covering of choice when at home.

    @OlvynChuru
    Either every librarian is a history buff or a magical 5th Dimensional Imp likes putting history books everywhere to screw with folks.

    or maybe the developers did so to let the players that are not familiar with pnp or the novels to grasp some lore about the fr.
    if that was their purpose they failed with me as i never read those history books, i don't care of the official fr lore at all and i rp the game using a very generic medieval-fantasy lore, mostly based on my tolkien readings.
    when i feel to rp as some times i feel to go all the way towards the pg aspect of the games.

    also it is probably much easier to write (boring) history books then interesting novels, i mean if an author has great ideas about material that can become a novel he probably actually writes a real novel in the real world instead of wasting those great plots to write in game books that will give him no glory and money as writer and that probably a lot of players would skip anyway.

    imo the most interesting book in the game is the infinite spells one, is the book that i always want to get in my playtrough, even if is not found in a library.

    about books i would have liked if the book that has the description of the new monsters in wk would not be in almost every container there.
    to have a single copy in the lev 1 library, hidden between many history books would have made the game more challenging for those players that are not already spoiled, they would have to be smart and find out that that particular book is actually useful or to find out themselves by trial and error how to face those new monsters.
