    How to avoid that no-save stun?
    - Ranged attacks. If the snake can't hit you, you don't get stunned.
    - Chaotic Commands. Not an option for a solo non-priest.
    - Sword of Arvoreen (Mazzy's sword). Restricted to halflings only, so not an option for a paladin.
    - Turn into a troll or mustard jelly.
    Interesting. I did experiment before quitting, and concluded ranged attacks would be OK so long as untargeting and retargeting was done as the snake retreated and returned. I also tried the mustard form and saw that was good at defence but was unable to kill the snake before reverting back to human form. I didn't try the troll form, but from what you say it sounds like a good option.

    Greenstone Amulet (Chapter 5) also protects from Stun for 1 turn, and Cloak of Atonement (Chapter 2) has 20% chance of casting Chaotic Commands for 15 turns. There's also two Chaotic Command scrolls in Neera guestline at ToB.

    Indy webs a couple of spore colonies, leading Rumbal to wonder if Indy checked Rumbal was OK to be running around in web or a bit of a chance-taker.

    Note the spirit armor icon on Rumbal's portrait :p.
  • I was at last able to take a holiday which has caused my absence for 2 weeks, so have missed reading about 40 posts here. Hopefully I will gradually be able to read them all.

    Welcome back. Your absence was noted. :)

    Journal of Arabelle
    before visiting the Iron Throne, I decided to visit Durlag's Tower. I cleared all the upper area and got as far as all but finishing the warder quest. Since I haven't yet got the runestones from Ulgoth's I decided to return to the Gate and finish my quests there.

    Glad to see @Grond0 trying out the Infinity Run! I hope to see you taking another crack at it. Icewind Dale 2 would be super challenging with multi-classed spellcasters, though--vanilla IWD2 is really unbalanced in favor of single-classed clerics, druids, sorcerers, and to a much lesser extent mages. Multi-classes are really only solid in IWD2EE.

    I have started vanilla BG1 again 3 times, but I wanted to try and reduce the number of party deaths in another run - and was aiming to avoid any party deaths in BG1 (and have failed at that so far). I should be able to manage that eventually though I hope ...

    We try to deal with Perdue only to find we did that last time and Corecleric is carrying another short sword for no reason.

    I love this line! What actually happened was I tried to loot a gem at the gnoll fortress, but one of you got the gem instead, so by the time my "loot" registered I got the xvart's short sword instead. I don't think I even realized that had happened till you mentioned in game I was carrying the sword.

    @CharlestonianTemplar I'm just wondering if your Blackguard of Talos is any different to the standard Blackguard (ie is it a kit from a mod?)
