You know what would be cool? A total conversion mod of BG2 to recreate Ultima 7. Image an Ultima game with BG combat.

  • ThacoBell earned the 500 Insightfuls badge.
    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.

      Well-earned. I guess 400 of them comes in Bard-related topics ;)

      Shoot, you been hangin here a while. Any new and unusual adventuring runs lately?

  • Eclipse just passed over my house. Had ~3 min of 99% eclipse. Would have looked cooler if the cloud cover wasn't so dense.

  • Aaah, another series run finished (always feels like an accomplishment). Now do go for my melee Ranger concept in PoE, finally finish my scythe wielding melee Bard in NWN2, or maybe start a fresh BG run as a Kobold? Is it ironic that my resartitis is worse before I even start the game?

      Looks like the Kobold has won out for me.
    • Zaghoul

      A restart with the kobold (weasels!) hehheh. Good ol verify. A new mod often does that for me as you know (lawd yeah).

      Heh,how's the restartitis holding out? Still in a dormant period or resurfaced again?
    • ThacoBell
      ThacoBell
      I still haven't decided if Freekin's bad encounter was the result of good rp or bad restartitis.

      I hear ya. Maybe both, humanoids are always given the role of boogeymen. Playing as one it is easier to see this, as you mentioned. At least it gives reason to go after the root cause of leading the brethren astray. :)
    • ThacoBell
      ThacoBell
      Very true.

      I've heard rangers are very weak in PoE, so that of course makes it interesting :)
    • ThacoBell

      My first run was with a Ranger, and they put out very good DPS. I recently found out that several of their bow feats work with melee weapons, which got me thinking about it.

      OK, didn't know that, but that's hardly surprising since I know so little about the game mechanics. All I remember reading was that rogue and that psionics class I've forgot the name of dealt the best damage and that rangers was by far the weakest class.
    • ThacoBell
      ThacoBell
      The psionics is waaay overpowered. Even though they have been nerfed, I'd say they are stronger in POE than sorcerer's are in BG. Ranger's are kinda in the same league as Bards in terms of Micro. They are really good, but they require coordinating with their animal companion to max their potential. They are essentially two characters.

      Nice pic. An old bell tower I'm guessing?

      Yup, had to tie in the bell somehow.

      You got me, as best I can tell, it's completely random when I load a page. It'll happen constantly for a few days, then everything will be fine for, say, a week. Then it happens all over again. Its nothing seriously forum breaking, just slightly inconvieniant.
  • After doing several BG1 and SoD test runs of different NPCs, it feels really good to be getting back into BG2.
