    So I do have a question regarding this. Is the challenge trilogy only? Or can I submit an icewind dale run or just run baldurs gate2 or Sod?

    @semiticgod what is the SR mentioned in the SCS description?

    @RVNS: Spell Revisions (SR) is a spell mod that tweaks most of the spells in BG1 and BG2 to make them more balanced and consistent. It's often paired with Item Revisions (IR), which rebalances the items of BG1 and BG2. They're designed to work together, and Spell Revisions and SCS are also designed to work together. If you install SR and SCS in the right order (I think SR comes first, but it would be better to check), then SCS spellcasters will use SR spells. I usually play without SR, but I strongly recommend the mod; it's extremely well-done.

    I wrote a review of SR and IR in the first issue of the community magazine Wild Surge. You can read the review here, on page 7.

    Definitively install SR before SCS. Being on a Mac, which means no Big World Setup, make you learn that kind of stuff. :p

    One more thing though : you have to install the SR specific version of SCS to have mage using SR spells. Generic SCS do not fully exploit SR changes.

    Then I shall tag @Ygramul!

    My tetralogy run was the "Undergate" run, with Chara the Alchemist as Charname, Frisk the Seducer, and 37 other NPCs over the course of the saga. I died once in BG1, but I did not reload; I started over from Candlekeep so it would be a continuous no-reload run. I have the links for each section of the run:
    ....

    Thanks, @semiticgod

    I just updated the original post with these runs.

    What is the current state of Spell Revisions?

    Is it stable?

    Does the SCS AI successfully incorporate it into consideration?

    Spell Revisions is still officially in beta, but it's fully playable. It's very stable. I haven't encoutered any problem with it.

    Also, only the SR specific version of SCS fully take the changes of SR in consideration. You can find it here :

    Generic SCS works, but does not take the SR changes into account. I had a run with SR and generic SCS before I knew about the correct version. Never finished it, but everything seemed at least functionnal, if not optimal.

    Tag-5,

    Don't get cocky,

    I popped into a cave to gab a sword... then wiped out spiders for Neera, and reshuffled my party at camp to deal with a couple of quest loose ends.

    Thanks. This is helpful. I will try this version with SR.

    There now follows the sort of combat that is extremely enjoyable but is thoroughly not recommended in no-reload

    Strange comment - what is there not to recommend :p?

    I tend to find that if you sleep once in the area where you get ambushed there is a chance you get ambushed when going East and south. It has something to do with ambushes taking place between travel regions at certain timeslots. Generally it is only a time range of a few hours.
    But hey, there are three potential arrow magnets that can join you in that area and then use a good party layout (the circle with you in the middle works okay) until you are confident with survival.

    Running is always good. Fight or flight as they say. You either commit or you don't.
