I have been truely spoiled by mod added multiclass kits. Using EEKeeper to jury rig illegal class combos just doesn't feel right anymore. I think my Barbarian/Shaman might need to be retired.

      Nooooooo, don't let him retire. The Realms need strong heroes! :)

      Barbarian/Shaman fits together nicely even from a role-playing aspect. It's sad to find that some excellent class-combos are illegal. I've always wanted to play a Sorcerer/Paladin combo (which is legitimate in 3E).

      The ability to multi-class freely (with a few Faction related restrictions) is one of the aspects I really like about 3E games like IWD2 and NWN. :D

      I'll be re-using the same name, backstory, and motivaitons. So, in a way, this charname isn't really done yet. I just need to find a class that I can get engaged with. Barbarian/Shaman would have been great, but my EEKeeper kludge just felt too janky.

      Time to get back to good ol' Ranger/Cleric! :D

      Heh, I'm hearin ya TBell. If it doesn't feel quite right it, I end up starting over. As a good deal of the humanoid races have F/Sh as a multi-class in 2nd editions Complete Humanoids Book", H/O's included (they can even be a Sh/T), it would be a nice option for the standard game.

      Barbarian/Shaman sounds like a win class in my book :P

      oh boy, do we need to get you to a chronic restart clinic? ...... I might need some help too

      At least I made it TO chargen this time. The graveyard for charname ideas that never were is vast.

      Barb/Sh is a great combo thematically. I just jury-rigged a fighter/druid multiclass dwarf where I added shaman spells manually into his spellbook in EEkeeper. I like to multiclass into dual as well and for that EEkeeper works better than any mods though, so you start as MC and level up to your liking, then when you reach a certain point, you go into EEkeeper and stop one of the classes from leveling more by changing to dualclassed. It's never perfect though, no matter how much I try to fix things in EEkeeper and it also removes some immersion to have to alt-tab and go into keeper, change things, save and reload in-game every time you level. So usually I end up not completing these kind of runs.

      I wish I was a master at creating kits myself so that I could create one that fits my style perfectly.

      Last year I drafted a Nordic-themed shaman that excels at dual wielding axes and summoning warrior spirits with berserker rage in exchange for less spells per day...

      @Skatan I hear ya. It helps my immersion a bit to only go into EEKeeper every few levels instead of every single level up.

    Hey I just noticed the comment about the little one, I'm glad to hear they are ok :)

      Thanks! That was a rough holiday. He is still not quite back to his standard, but we at least aren't bouncing back and forth between hospitals now.

      Oh no! what happened?

      We aren't entirely sure. For some reason, his body's digestion process slowed down down so much, that backed up and he kept throwing up everything he ate or drank. The doctors never figured out what was causing it. Everything looked completely normal, but his body just refused to work right. Almost four months later, its finally normalizing. My son has a significant disability that affects every part of him, so random things going horribly wrong is kinda par for the course.

      Jeez that is rough for your poor little one to go through, from what I can tell he has good parents though :)

      You guys made my wife's day btw. She has been having a very rough week, and hearing your support cheered her up.
  • Gah, the urge to start another playthrough is rising.

      If I'm lucky, the planning will take long enough for a patch to release...

      The planning, heh, ain't that the truth though. I'm in that stage myself (again). :)

      Literally dreamed about my new charname last night.

      Been there, done that! Created a druid for the first time in ages recently, and now I keep dreaming about strolling in the woods and just lying around in tall grass, hah! It's cool and scary at the same time how affected one become from a game.

      And yeah, stop stalling and just play a new game ;P

      I'm still planning my charname out, but yeah, I don't think waiting for the patch is happening.
