I'm convinced Glint Gardnersonson is the male version of my gnome bard, Piro Faeren. This is too perfect. http://imgur.com/a/3dNds

  • I'm playing SoD for the first time and for the first time I actually like Minsc as a character. I was never a fan of him prior. Also Glint is precious and deserves all the love.

      "I'm playing SoD for the first time and for the first time I actually like Minsc as a character. I was never a fan of him prior."

      You're dangerously close to having a decapitated horse's head left under your duvet...

      Replace Minsc with Edwin and Glint with M'Khiin and this was my SoD experience in a nutshell.
    • Vallmyr
      Vallmyr
      I haven't met M'khiin yet but I imagine I'll end up having a party of shorties during SoD lol
    • Vallmyr
      Vallmyr
      My party now consists of
      Cu Sidhe, Half-Elf Blade Bard (Charname)
      Corwin, Human Archer
      Glint, Gnome Thief/Cleric
      Viconia, Drow Cleric
      and M'khiin, Goblin Shaman.

      I had to remove Dynhier and Minsc, unfortunately but on my next run I'm def going to use them all the way through SoD. I actually like the two of them a lot in this but I also want to use the new characters.

      Same happened to me, I never liked Minsc nor Dynaheir either but I ended up with them, and they rock o.0
    • Vallmyr

      When I get back to camp I might exchange Corwin out and pick up the two of them since my party is 5 now.

      I've played through 1 full and two half way throughs and Ive used all NPCs now except Minsc and Dyna, heh.. Reading your comments above, I think the next run should indeed include them.

      There are so many bard specific items and quests! I love this <3

      Imagine if you could roll a dwarven bard. So much exclusive gear.

      EEkeepering and playing a Dwarf Skald could be fun. Dwarf Skalds are canon by PnP so . . .
    • ThacoBell
      ThacoBell
      EEkeeper is your best friend.
    • Vallmyr
      Vallmyr
      It is! I usually only play things that are canon by PnP though. I feel like if BG is to be a representation of 2e AD&D in a video game then I think if it's allowed canonly in PnP it should be allowed in the game lol
    • Vallmyr
      Vallmyr
      Oh.
      This Dungeons and Dragons game actually has Dragons in it. I was not expecting this turn of events.
    • ThacoBell

      Hehe, yeah that was a pretty nasty surprise for me to the first time XD Can be quite difficult.
    • ThacoBell

      Good thing it has a crippling weakness to -REDACTED-
      Wow, that was weird.
    • Vallmyr
      Vallmyr
      So I learned of its weakness through trial and error. Were there any hints I missed that referenced this weakness or are you expected to just trial and error it?
    • ThacoBell
      ThacoBell
      No hints, it is a reference to something though. More of an easter egg than an intended strategy.
    • Vallmyr
      Vallmyr
      Oh, what is the reference?
    • ThacoBell
      ThacoBell
      I cannot remember. It was a reference to something I had never played/watched. :(
    • Vallmyr
      Vallmyr
      SoD has mimics, too! I love the monsters in this expansion.
    • ThacoBell
      ThacoBell
      Have you cleared the temple yet? There is a fun surprise there.
    • Vallmyr
      Vallmyr
      Indeed! That boss certainly took me quite a few tries lol. Having Corwin charmed caused quite a few of the wipes. Also, so far SoD might be my favorite entry into the BG series. I like it a lot so far.

      Glint is a large (or rather, small, heh) reason that I love SoD so much. Gnomes are my favorite and he's the gnomiest gnome lol

      But I am greater than wubble, right? Right?
    • wubble
      wubble
      Yes, but don't tell anyone I said that ;)

      It's a whole forum of beautiful people... and one delusional Shandyr.
    • Vallmyr
      Vallmyr
      Wait if Shandyr is Shandyr, does that make me the Delusional Shandyr?
    • Nimran

      Yes.
