    Getting quite far into the story without taking a single hit. When I finally took a hit it was of all people Chase the suicide guy who I went back to because I started wondering if he could be pick pocketed. I failed, he turned red, I was expecting him to run away and instead he attacked me. Even after I was hit and lost health I still couldn’t believe he’d attacked me.

    i remember doing the paladin stronghold a couple weeks ago, and i was at the Inn in the umar hills, and i was conversing with the wizard in there, and when things started to escalate out of control, his final excuse was that he was filthy rich and could do whatever he wanted, and i was thinking; is that so bud? lets look at the back pocket here...... yup, over 100 000 gold, so...... how rich are you really? richer than me? doubtful, but of coarse no option to say so, so instead, turned the holmes into bacon bits, but i guess he was wad anyway, so win/win i suppose

    EDIT: oops, i thought this was the baldur's gate logic thread, @ZaramMaldovar your name threw me off, hahaha

    I too felt compelled to start a FMT run the other day (that thread!!!!) but didn't die to the cutscene arrow - I've always wondered it that was possible.

    @sarevok57
    Apparently I'm famous for only two things
    1. The Baldur's Gate Logic Thread
    2. Discussing my character
    3. FIRE!

    I'm sorry those are three things, my bad. I'm a little trigger happy.

    Here's a facepalm moment

    Just a few minutes ago I posted on the meme thread and my memes ended up getting all jumbled up causing me to edit the post five times....it's still not in the right order but at least the major problems were fixed.

    Yeah, if you end the cutscene before the arrow hits you, it does regular damage. ouch.

    indeed, in fact i was looking at the script for that cut scene fight one day, and what actually happens, is that your character is given the belt of "minimum 1 HP" so you can't actually die from that arrow ( so in case you were a mage with 4 HP you wouldn't die in one hit on insane)

    and then when the cut scene ends, you are healed and the belt is taken away

    luckily when the game auto saved, the arrow did not auto save with it, or else my roll of a 96 FMT could have been in reload limbo haha

    I'm new to the game. It took me some time to realize my sword has been broken.

    This one still gets me. Its easy for the "weapon broken" message to get lost in the combat log.

    That is some epic failure, the kind you talk about for the rest of your life.

    When I realized that you can scroll down in the list of thief skills when you level up. A whole new world of illusion detecting and successful trap setting opened up for me. If only I could've seen that world through the palms covering my face as I realized how long I had played the game without knowing this basic thing.

    Hahaha, that's so funny I want to cry, cry tears of joy! I'm sorry if this is awkward, but I am literally burst-laughing my ass off right now!
