I created a backup folder of my bg2 folder with mods, and play directly from it, literally just copy and paste all of the files in your game folder to a new one, and cheers, a self contained EE game with no chance of being altered :)
I don't know if i mentioned it, but i named my cat boo, hehe, i guess i love minsc and boo a bit too much :P shes quite the warrior too, always bringing me "trophies", during our power outages in these massive storms, she brought me lots of various bugs to "eat" at least she tries to contribute to the family! :P
Yes, that's my interpretations. There's a HUGE pile of rotting bodies in the room to the north in the Catacombs. That's the pile of all those replaced by doppelgangers. It's always a bit sad to have to kill all of your old friends and mentors.
I rather doubt they actually could have killed ALL those people without Ulrant and Tethtoril noticing (and I rather doubt they could have killed those two). Maybe a few here and there, but not that many. I always just saw it as they were taunting and haunting Charname with their powers. Besides, I don't think you were in jail long enough for them to kill that many people. Had they killed those people before you got there Charname would likely have been able to spot their deceptions since they seem somewhat dumb and lacking in self control.
Look around you carefully, my friend... I'm just trying to caution you against dangerously deceptive disguises. You'll realize in time that my intentions are nothing but honourable. When the moment comes, you shall find out.
By the way this has always reminded me of one of my favorite video games, 1602 A.D.
From time to time a kraken would emerge from the depths of the sea. Luckily it would never attack the ships, only look around and then submerge again.
I got a good tip for you you know how liches AutoCast death and kill your summons? Just sell and recharge a wand of summoning cast it wants to trigger the AutoCast of death then summon all you want in the witch can't do anything about it
I sometimes wish to IWDify my spell-books too. The thing is that I've not yet completed BG2 (I started playing it just a year back). So I'd first like to have the original experience, before I play with any mods. :)
I consider myself a master strategist in all video games it's a problem though because sometimes I get too good and I ruin the game for myself and have to start setting massive restrictions on things haha
I have never played HoMM 1. I tried it once. It's pretty much like HoMM2 with the difference that the sprites look so UGLY. Sorry, I cannot stand the sprites in HoMM1. The blue hydra above is actually an exception that looks good. Other sprites are very very ugly in HoMM1.
About the genies, it's the same with them in HoMM2. There you can also only buy them from genie lamps found on the map. They are very powerful. They have the chance to half the stack of an enemy unit.
Ferret Force Five after initial successes succumbed to the ravages of time, leaving me victorious. The vegetable war is still being fought. Shandyr died... Only to return more powerful as Shandaxx the Lich... The Pancakes and Waffles war has also created casualties. Nimran has found the font of unlimited cookies.
Mlnevese continues to be Martian.
Loads of other stuff... patch, neverwinter... Uhm... Must have missed something...
