Ok, so I've played Baldur's Gate a million and one times and wanted to make an interesting challenge / gimp the character so here it is:
Lets start at character creation.
Can only use a 75 roll - you can swap the values around but cannot increase/decrease and set them as you want.
So I went with a multi-class half-elf fighter/druid - which added the extra bonus of having a charisma minimum of 15, nice!
After a couple rolls I got: Then swapped INT for DEX
STR 11 -> 11
DEX 11 -> 16
CON 8 -> 8
INT 16 -> 11
WIS 14 -> 14
CHA 15 -> 15
Good to go, I also decided I can't put 2 pips into any weapon proficiency at level 1, so we got:
Quarter Staff *
Two Handed Weapon Style *
Decided to give myself a bit of a chance and so am playing on core rules difficulty, not doing an iron man as its more funny to see how many times I die, but will not be resurrecting joinable npcs.
Almost all decisions are made with a dice roll, this is going quite fun/badly!
Can only rest at Inns and when tired, no pointless travel.
Can't attack non hostile npcs.
Roll dice to see if character will use unidentified items when first picked up, all items should be identified as soon as possible at a temple etc.
Roll dice for all dialogue.
Can't hoard items in containers.
Can always carry a dagger or a club.
Can only carry -
Two other melee weapons, three if duel wielding, e.g one in the hand(s), one on a belt.
One ranged weapon or 20 throwing daggers or 40 darts.
One armour and helmet, equipped.
Two cloaks, gauntlets, girdles, boots, one equipped.
60 arrows or bullets.
Highlights so far:
Dice roll saved me from the gender girdle!
Got Sonner's quest, yay! Told Tenya I don't want to deal with her or Sonner's bunch, doh!
Died a lot!
Didn't help Prism or meet Greywolf or get the emeralds!
Getting npcs is pretty tricky!
Pissed off Xzar and Monty at first encounter.
Can't even get into Friendly Arm Inn as killed by Tarnesh.
Left Kargain's dialogue.
Said no to Garrick - didn't even get Silke's quest.
Killed by Thayan Red Wizard during Neera's introduction.
Rasaad joined! (oh wow)
Minsc attacked, and then killed my Amn soldier.
Turned down Edwin, no gnoll stronghold for me!
Didn't rescue Branwen from her stone form.
Xan Joined! ...
Deaths so far:
2 x death to spiders in Landrin's house.
2 x death to Thayan Red Wizard in Neera's first encounter.
2 x death to Tarnesh.
1 x death to Hobgoblin in Friendly Arm Inn area.
1 x death to Hobgoblin in area north of Nashkel...
1 x death to war dogs in the barn in Nashkel mine map.
1 x death to Kobold Commando in Nashkel mines.
6+ deaths to Mulahay... might have to come back to this!
I want to add more consequence to dying, firstly donated 100 gold for each death at a temple, but this raised my reputation, even when at different temples
does anyone know if there is a remove gold console command?
Will add some screenshots later
