Artemius_I

A 15-year BG player's experience: 1. Spend an hour making up a new protagonist 2. Spend another hour finding a suitable portrait for said protagonist 3. Spend three hours rerolling for 90+ stats 4. Start game and get Shanked less than five minutes in. 5. Lose all motivation to play for the rest of the day then repeat the cycle, rendering all prior time spent worthless. And that is the reason why I no longer play this game.

  • A word of warning to aspiring modders: it takes restartitis to a whole new level saps your soul and your desire to play through the game. I don't think I've been able to sit down and attempt a full run since 2015.

    At least that's what it's done to me.

      Recovered very well, thank you for your concern.

    You received 500 Insightfuls. Everyone agrees that you are wise beyond your years! Oghma is certainly proud, and I think the monks at Candlekeep want your autograph.

      It has recently struck me that the symbol of Deneir, one of my favorite FR deities, is also a reverse Illuminati symbol. Make of that what you will.
