    Always sucks when it's a Two Handed Sword. Money's tight in the Candlekeep Tutorial and those things cost like seventy gold.

    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!
    This isn't awkward! Who's awkward?? I'm not awkward! YOU are awkward!! Now let's never talk about this again.
    You’re not alone, this happened to me to. I was always like, “Damn, thieves are useless!”
    Yeah...

    I don't know if this counts, but my first playthrough of SoA I thought Irenicus was my godfather after he refers to you as "god-child" in the second cutscene.

    I was like "damn, he's pretty mean for a godfather. My nuno would never torture me"

    AU where Jaheira speaks like Ironicus. "Ah, the Child of Bhaal has awoken."

    so what i think may be the first time this has ever happend. my sword broke during the candle keep tutorial.

    @megamike15

    You think that's bad, I've never been able to finish a tutorial, I tried both the BG1 and the BG2 tutorials back in the day and couldn't figure out how to finish it.

    Irenicus? Firkragg? Demogorgon? They have all fallen before my dumb luck.

    Tutorials? That's too hard.

    Edit/Additional Facepalm Moment: I just realized you were talking about the Prologue, and not the actual tutorial.

    Yep, it sucks. That’s why, in the prelude, I always attack with a quarter staff. Unless I’m a monk, of course.

    I used to think Boring Beetles in IWDee were just really unamused beetles
    I used to think bastard swords were born out of wedlock
    Well being older I didn't think that.

    I did however, think they were useless and nobody liked them hence the name.
    Consequently never ever considered using Foebane, why on earth would I use a "useless" Bastard Sword?
    Always got Khilid a different sword as soon as poss, and Ajantis, sod looking at "pips" why would I let my NPC go around with useless swords?

    @JoenSo It could be in a setting where physical conflict of any kind is unheard of. Calling someone a weapon would undoubtedly be the highest insult.

    Broad-sword can be seen as kinda sexist as well

    In some of my 1st playthroughs
    1. I ignored stats
    2. I ignored weapon proficiences
    3. I just assumed that swords were always better
    4. I didn't use autopause (to be fair my mom also didn't use autopause and it turned out okay for her)

    I wasn't very smart even for a 12 year old.

    Now you have me thinking of Munchkin. They have an item called "The Broadsword" that can only be used by women. Men have the "Gentlemen's Club".
