I know about preserving the "integrity of the game" and all of that but I never multi-play with other people online. I only play solo and it is as much about wasting time as it is about struggling through to the end. With that in mind, in the old BG and other games, when you loaded a saved game you could change which characters were put into the game when it reloaded. Yes, this could be used for cheating... that is how I usually used it... but it could also be used to bring in fresh characters and equipment in cases such as I have been having with SoD where I have characters who just die in the beds for no reason, or a character loses all of his equipment when transitioning from BGEE to SoD. Please let the players make their own moral and ethical choices about what hacks or cheats they want to use.
