Inspired by all of you no-reloading people, especially @Blackraven
, I will be trying to beat BG no-reload style. Character is a Chaotic Good gnome fighter/ilusionist. He is a bit selfish, self-centered (cha 8) and absent minded/detached (wis 8). He is, however extremelly brilliant (Int 19) and can see plots, schemes, etc, from a mile away. So yes, I will metagame as much as I can :-D Other than that, he is like Captain Hammer from Dr. Horrible Sing along blog. He is naturally strong, nimble and resilient (all maxed out. I am trying to do a no-reload which sounds to me like something crazy. If I make it, I might consider doing a more realistic charname).
I managed to get to Fighter 4/Ilusionist 4, so it seems this one is a bit more of a keeper than my last two tries.
Question for all you gurus out there: Is there anyone in BG where spamming web will not win the encounter?

Well, well, I haven´t updated this in a while.There has been so many changes I haven´t even had time! First things first: Gorion is dead. Sad story but hey, it is not like we were buddies. Everyone in Candlekeep talked about him as my "foster father" but he bore me no love. Always ordering me around. Anyway, no point speaking bad of the dead. He died saving me, after all, and I am grateful for that. If the old stick was good at something, it was duty.
After that, I have just been wandering around the Sword Coast the last two weeks and it has been... Well, it has been AWESOME! Really, I feel I have learnt four times more in these two weeks than in all my years in Candlekeep. As if they were trying to keep my powers at bay, you see what I mean? Anyway, I can now cast spells from the second circle! That Thethtoril fool telling me for a couple of years now that I wasn´t ready and BAM a couple of weeks without their teachings and there I am becoming invisible. Same with my martial skills. Years training with Jondalar. For what? In two weeks I am more accurate with the bow than ever before. Honestly, it seems my life in Candlekeep was a colossal waste of time.
Anyway, just after Gorion´s murder and meeting with Imoen, I realised I could not go to the Friendly Arm Inn. It seemed our movements where tracked and if Gorion had friends there it was likely they would try to ambush me there again. Therefore, I instructed Imoen to go North and check-in at the Inn to study who was coming and going there. Then, we would meet in Beregost after two weeks. In the meantime, I have been keeping a low profile in Beregost, using the fake surname "Underhill" and helping with a couple of small issues they had: Spiders and other beasts such as ogres, but nothing major.
I also took care of a basilisk infestation they had to the East of their temple, close enough to become a problem if one of them wandered in the direction of town. Dumb beasts, those are. They keep looking at you even if it obvious you are not turning to stone. There was supposed to be some crazy gnome named Metadone or
Mutantine or something like that. Never met the guy. Then, went to meet that good old Thalantyr in High Hedge,
some kind of a hermite but the closest person selling magical supplies from Beregost. How can there not be someone selling supplies in Beregost? Maybe after I find out who wants me dead and I deal with them, I can open a shop. People around here like me. Or at least they don´t yell at me anymore if I enter their houses. I still get confused around this town, you know. Never was the best one at telling directions.
Today, it has been quite relaxed, finally. Only saved some elven chick called Nevera or something like that. She wanted to join me but I told her "For me to travel with an elf it would have to have wings!". It was supposed to be a funny remark but she took offense and left. Women have never been my best quality. Or anywhere near it, for that matter, hehe. Why am I only funny to myself? Morons. In any case, right now I am waiting for Imoen in the Burning Wizard. Let´s see what news she brings. If she comes. She was always a sneaky one, so I am sure she is ok.
I hope so.
