New Premium Module: Tyrants of the Moonsea! Read More
My biggest beef with BG when I played it 20 or so years ago arose on my first playthrough, when took the characters you probably would do if it was real. Imoen was a shoe in as my childhood friend who was now homeless too and then I sought out Gorion's buddies Jaheira and Khalid as advised. I adventured a while with Minsc and Dynaheir too until I bumped into Yeslick, who became my BFF after Imoen. This led to a big dilemma and I couldn't bring myself to ditch Gorion's best buddies and so gave my Rashemi chums the boot. I picked up Ajantis and headed off to Baldurs Gate. At which point my alignment was 20. And Jaheira moaned on ... And on ... And on. Every two seconds bitching about my leadership and being too good. Thanks a lot, great job standing in for Gorion there Jaz. Talk about wicked stepmother. So I ditched her, ran back and got Minsc and Dynaheir and never looked back. It felt kind of hollow though. Jaheira is a Harper, was a buddy to Gorion and Elminster and is basically a do gooder. Why is she moaning on all the time when I'm doing good then? Why isn't she neutral good? Druid alignment makes no sense. Faldorn is more in the true neutral, maybe even neutral evil camp. This thing all messed up, yo. Jaheira should be neutral good in both games.
