    Here we have Said, pronounced arabishly as sah-e-d. He is demonically endowed despite rangers not benefiting from wisdom modifiers because I can not remember 2e dual class ability requirements (if this is 2e). He has already died once to drungeor or whatever the dark dwarves are called while I re-familiarized myself with the starting dungeon.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    The first dungeon is fairly annoying because I have to deal with garbage pre-set spells while listening to Imoen moan about being raped, no pun intended. Even when I first played Baldurs Gate 2 I never wanted to rest in the first dungeon in order to change spells...because why would I take a nap trying to escape? At least the honor system beats managing your camping supplies, fuck poe. Anyway I'm keeping the opening dungeon brief now and in later runs
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I actually forgot about this part. You use the elemental statue on a hidden door next to the dark dwarves, it contains some spell imps, a summon wind elemental spell, and a genie who will grant you one item from the previous game in exchange for playing fetch. I got a sling.
    [​IMG]
    Nasty little golems typically do 50 damage when they feel like it, are immune to magic, and sometimes immune to piercing and slash weapons but resistant regardless. I believe 20 damage past zero health is permanent death for npcs so standing the background in a bard really doesn't do much for their lethality.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Alas Minsc has fallen to two unexpected random hostile enhanced edition randoms
    [​IMG]
    And this is where we end for my 2nd attempt so far. I shit you not I ran out of that dungeon as fast as I could to start recruiting and got killed rescuing Viconia. I thought those three whole dudes weren't much, but when your walking around at 40 hp because you are too cheap to use potions you can get crit'ed faster than it takes to use one. Should of learned with Minsc. I'll be back tomorrow or the next day with a more proper narrative skipping the dungeon (only in posting I don't have the mod to skip the first dungeon).

    And we are back at the city of coin for round three
    [​IMG]
    Said's arabic wits soon overcome him in the slums of Amn, much like an unaccompanied maiden in cologne, and after a deeply necessary charade a deal is struck for assistance in the location of Amonen for the price of 20 thousand gold lions and two hand woven persian carpets.
    [​IMG]
    After much trepidation and thought, Said reluctantly turns to killing infidels and theft, being the easiest way in the game to make 15k and reach the +2 spells per level mage. To do this he turns to most annoying character in game since there is only two actual thieves in the game, with the other being a weeb with 50 points in traps that don't work (just tried it in the starter dungeon and 0 traps set correctly out of 5).
    [​IMG]
    Slaver's ambush our intrepid thieves, they actually do this regardless of alignment or actions. Nary a name difference or flavor choice here, but a +2 short sword is ours
    [​IMG]
    These mephit shits take on a new life on insane since they bypass any sort of attack roll and do damage directly. They can still be negated with a resist elements spell but there appearances end here abruptly.
    [​IMG]
    And our hero is killed, again, with a death spell. Was not expecting a level 7 spell (14 caster level) so early, but I was doing fuck all to prevent it later as well at this pace. Said is dead forever, but I'll be back Saturday with a more effective build, a cleric, and a death ward on me at all times versus mages.

    Learning from my past mistakes I have abandoned the path of righteousness and converted to the shadow of evil and immunity to stunlocks.
    [​IMG]
    And the dividends of inequity are great indeed as I crush these pathetic golems that once hit me for 60 damage
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Jaheira is cursed by an evil slaver, alas Lloyd cares little
    [​IMG]
    This is actually then the theft task I was given last time, which was to steal from the temple of talos
    [​IMG]
    Not off to a great start here as I get my ass licked by low level thieves on the way to
    [​IMG]
    I then encounter vampires after running back to fetch a priest for resurrection
    [​IMG]
    And finally some schizo starts trying to attack my injured ranger on the way back to his arnor and weapons
    [​IMG]
    Ultimately, we fail to make it past the docks one day one of our perilous quest to steal from priests and are forced to regroup until sunrise.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Despite Lloyd's base instincts we aid our druid in lifting her curse, during which several people die. We are then ambushed by slavers for the third time overall I believe. Our jacobin sacrilegious desecration of the moneyed forces of organized religion are prolonged yet again.
    [​IMG]
    Should have made a screenshot of the theft itself after such a journey, but my vision for narrative was blinded with hate still burning from the last ass whooping handed to me by the cowled fools. There are also golems in the mage's house (I don't believe I mentioned them before or the reason for me fighting this mage). Anyway each time I just lure them down stairs and kill them one at a time.
    [​IMG]
    Finally the mage is undone with an insect plague, can't cast death spells when you can't cast spells.
    [​IMG]
    Ah masterful Bioware writing, gaydar most likely came down upon his pissant peons to write this line himself. I forgot to take a coherent story of screenshots again, but suffice it to say I recruit the spellcaster Edwin along with some other fools to kill a rogue shadowthief and mostly just took screenshots of my exchanges with the fight-cleric anomen. I don't feel like my priorities were misplaced in the slightest

    With the death of the thief, a potion of genius, and a potion of mental clarity, I assume the role of a fighter/mage with 150% chance to learn spells (normally maxing out at 85% at 18 int). Just learning spells provides a great amount of experience to help gain levels in my new class.
    [​IMG]
    I soon wandered upstairs at the Inn I rested right after setting and memorizing all my mage spells, suddenly finding myself baited with all this newfound power at my disposal
    [​IMG]
    When I took this screenshot, I knew I was going to die. Just 10,000 experience points from regaining my beserker power, which include immunity to stuns! Should have known better than to fuck with named characters a hair too early, but squashing some losers will go to your head real quick

    Actually forgot a wand key this time
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    hmm, the game probably registers that as a trap rather than a wand
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    The temple robbery got a little botched here, and ultimately I had to kill every one to zero effect on my reputation. In BG1 the guards and mercenaries will come after you usually even after just one small bloodbath.

    My first glance was that the prince was younger than the princess, so I just clicked one of the options where he was younger. Much like school you have to learn to pick one of the less wrong answers and get the fuck on with your life so you can get back to restarting a game every time you die

    Fireballs 2: Shadow of narcolepsy excels at the core gameplay fans wanted, less annoying dungeons and more enemies standing in big groups in cities so you can drop fireballs on them
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Here Edwin teaches us a wise lesson about racism
    [​IMG]
    Finally our mage skills have returned, for our next quest we explore the sewers in search of a magical sword, there were some riddles or some such nonsense but I decided to focus on the atmosphere of me walking around fetching and killing rather than the thin reasons behind my violence and wandering.

    yes, all of this was done without dying. Not impossible at all in a game where you can always run away, but there is also equal opportunity to always walk into trouble because you feel like it and are bored

    The merchants of amn weep at my rampage of rape on their magical stock

    Afterwards we choose to assist xzar in locating his companion, much to the displeasure of my mouthy companions

    hmmm found a mass invisibility scroll, you can also steal a ring of troll regeneration off the store clerk at the 'adventure's mart'
    [​IMG]

    And that's pretty much it, if only bioware had thought up some substance to this fetch quest instead of a dozen companion comments. Seriously, was there one guy who wrote all this nonsense for Jan because I can't imagine multiple degenerates of such caliber coalescing even at bioware.

    foolish m*ge your death spells are no match for my double backstab tactics

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Here's what Lloyd's stats be looking like, this is with the blur spell though. Also there were no clues
    [​IMG]
    also there was no 'guardian', I just got a fireball dropped on my party. I don't know if this was an intentional joke or mislead or if they just said fuck it drop a fireball on those cunts and nix the riddles. Both Lloyd's spellcasters would probably be dead without a save
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Lloyd walks again, his luck just won't run out
    [​IMG]
    NOOOOOO MY DEATH SPELLS, HOW CAN THIS BE???

    protection from magic weapons doesn't work against normal weapons just in case you never bothered trying
    [​IMG]
    Always scout and check for traps

    Four members of the dick squad just arrived from thin air, "knave begone from here, else face our sixty fours', cower and present your rear, we will fuck your ass sore whore"
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Lloyd actually beat those golems like a red headed step child, I think he was -20 ac though from an anti-blunt weapon belt, blur, and defensive harmony. He was so cocky some random lizards starting besting him for a second
    [​IMG]
    Anyway all that was pointless because we are actually looking for a demon heart that had nothing to do with that locked door, yes I mentioned our new demon heart quest right?
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Despair, demon, for you have unleashed my critical backstabs
    [​IMG]
    Lloyd actually ran away and buffed himself rather than delivering that cool line. Afterwards he realized demons can't cast death spells so his effort was in vain
    [​IMG]
    Lloyd once more got too full of bravado, piss, and vingear after that instant kill, like always, and quickly shyed away from his unnecessary crusade on demons back to tasks at hand.
    [​IMG]
    With this Lloyd's quest of revenge and redemption is done.
    [​IMG]
    "But what does this have to do with demon hearts?"
    [​IMG]
    "actually weren't you supposed to kill this valy guy?"
    [​IMG]
    A valuable lesson on the human condition all around, next time we will embark on another soul searching quest of friendship with Anomen

    hmmm killing children infront of their parents is a little too evil for this party Anomen. Truly, we just wanted to make mean comments before casting spells and slaying dragons. Alas we are neck deep in it now and will cast spells and slay all the same

    The last three pictures are a representation of what it would look like if I defeated that death spell that killed Lloyd forever. The moment you let your guard down mages come swinging down on vines with their death spells on the way to the actual quest. I have two more persons that die almost immediately, the first is an archer, the second is a brief continuation of the mage/beserker combo

    The bloodiest battle I have ever been sprawling any game. Every single person involved ended up dead, friend and foe. In fantasy land it probably was a 1 to 2 weeks before some one investigated the smell of 20 maggot covered corpses stinking up the whole of the slums. It wasn't even a giant fireball or some such that killed everyone, it was more mexican standoffish in nature with dead men killing the living

    [​IMG]
    All that aside the time has come for a new hero to arise, a hero who wouldn't die immediately, a terrible beserker destined to punish all the death spell casting magelings of faerun

    The first of many difficult mage fights ahead for Yoel (Lloyd is dead)
    [​IMG]
    I believe last playthrough(s) he said taller instead, likely this is based of your charisma though my extra strength modifier is higher

    I have noticed that some companions will scale in relation to your level - before they join your party. Your level rather than total experience. So I did some solo leveling then dual-classed to a thief were levels gain much faster, and indeed several characters ultimately ended up having 600-800k more experience than if you were to add them immediately to the group at level 8/9 as well as more experience than me in case of a thief. There is also only 1 hp gain difference past lv10 between a fighter and thief despite thieves being 4 to 6 levels ahead at any time. Finally I was annoyed with Jan, the only permanent thief I can mass steal with, and realized I could simply kill all mages by backstabbing them before a single spell
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I can also steal potions from my enemies

    s-sorry sir
    [​IMG]
    whoops Yoel's blade slipped on the way out
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I have also realized the thief stronghold actually allows you to sell stolen goods aka I can print more money than the fed and thus walk around more doped up than a Russian athlete at Sochi
    [​IMG]

    Overall a very BORING update for all parties involved, but I wanted to give a good sense of my grind, latest schemes, and new thief abilities. Next time we will have new adventures and dungeons, and I will mostly stick to new material if I end up dying again.

    Discretion is the better part of valour they say. Yoel's tricks and spells have run dry, so he becomes one with the shadows and makes like a tree and leaves. Technically Yoel was done anyway after poisoning the font and the resulting tree eater round up was just for kicks
    [​IMG]

    hnhnhnhnhnhmmm that was a close one there dodging that instant kill spell

    bah more dirt eaters rejecting Yoel's heroic rescue of the town. "b-but we didn't mean to kill people :("
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Finally some respect is rightfully given
    [​IMG]
    As the saviour of the town against the forces of darkness and trees Yoel rightfully takes what is due towards him even if the local tyrants withhold his spoils (Yoel steals many trinkets)
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Bioware had the nerve to make a merchant that can't be stolen from! Bastards.
    [​IMG]
    A bug; Yoel doesn't warp time and reload because he doesn't care
    [​IMG]
    Innocently enough Yoel decides to relax after a hard day of heroism, have a few ales, and cast a few magical combat buffs...
    [​IMG]
    What??? Cowled mages? Yoel had forgotten the magical prohibitions in Amn, and alas the enforcers have fell into carelessly placed traps before he had time to explain himself. Oh well, the only recourse is violence now...
    [​IMG]

    Also I don't remember when this nail bitter happened, but Yoel survived

    I would use low key SCS instead of insane difficulty. Or just use core difficulty.

    You play a little bit too reckless for ironman if you want to succeed. Don't take unneeded risks and be aware of instant death effects. Do the easier quests before the harder ones (planar sphere). Get the good gear asap. Berserker is a great class to ironman but you need to pay a lot of attention on your rage duration. There is gear you might not use normally that can be crucial in ironman, e.g. the 2 short swords with haste and mirror image.
    Almost all my ironman deaths in BG2 were due to mages, demons and traps. Don't underestimate those.

    Experience in your witless bearing, I like that one

    The theme of this dungeon is that it has tiny areas you can fall into via these fleshy cancers
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    You can also use them to avoid spells
    [​IMG]
    spell immunity abjuration prevents dispel and breach I realized. Originally I thought it was useless since there are like 7-8 schools of magic and you can just use spell turning instead, but really there is only two damage dealing schools.

    Here it got a little funky with flesh cells getting turned off by some orb, before Yoel could pick up edwin's dropped gear
    [​IMG]
    Also six cockroaches and a minotaur got spawned when Yoel was walking near the exit
    [​IMG]
    I could have just choked down one of my 16 invisibility potions too..
    [​IMG]
    Anyway Yoel was adequately successful so he'll have another round

    I don't really do any of the enhanced edition content nor post about, and what I mean by 'really' is that there is a rather annoying cut scene in the bridge district that I have seen multiple times with overtly modern dialogue. Ex: 'you really did not think this through' Neera:'No - but that's what magic is for!' More fit for a quip fest in an unfunny super hero movie than an epic fantasy. Any way the above screen shot is only a reconstruction
    [​IMG]
    What Yoel actually did was shoot a fireball to stop the scene!
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    unfortunately Yoel lost an insane amount of reputation when Edwin started a fight in confusion
    [​IMG]
    technically EE items are rule approved, just like game exploits
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Only evil characters will join now
    [​IMG]
    This was a big surprise, I didn't think bg2 had guard events
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Those guards were quite strong, so Yoel has decided to clear up some of the rumors surrounding him over that ACCIDENTAL death by helping some slaves and temporarily removing the drow, Viconia, from his party
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Yoel, breaker of chains and martyr of police brutality, has successfully put a stop to the impudent slavers harassing the citizens of Amn under the carelessly malicious watch of the guards.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    What is wrong with these louts?? Have they not heard of the great hero of Amn?
    [​IMG]
    Yoel agrees to help the ignorant peasants, for they can not be blamed for being dull and foul mannered much like the sun can not be chastised for rising in the morning or a dog eating its own excrement. It is only natural
    [​IMG]
    The dirt-eating pagans quickly fall to Yoel's witchery and blades, foiled in their ghastly genocidal plans by our hero. However deja vu and Yoel's low opinion of the peasantry give him cause to trot off to the next epic quest without reporting his success, which could be open to manipulation like many of his heroic deeds.
    [​IMG]
    Here is a virginal trinket for me, its meant to be pick pocketed off the genie in front of the tent in tradesmeet, however you could just kill him.
    [​IMG]
    Next Yoel sets out to do the troll quest, have we covered the troll quest yet? Well its some castle Yoel is saving from trolls.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    For once Edwin is speaking some sense
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Edwin you fool! The guards will be relentless now...
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    A near death encounter, Yoel planned on a big 100+ back stab
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    64's are but child's play to the king of golems and his princely 74's
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    In a frenzy Yoel now moves on to the sewer-portal quests!
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Bam. Another quest complete. What to they call mental diving abilities? Promotions? Well Yoel just had a big promotion about stepping into a random portal
    [​IMG]
    ah what is this?
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    A bug Yoel gladly exploits
    [​IMG]
    This shit went on for a minute with no damage on either side
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    In light of those two misfortunate deaths and misplaced gossip it has become necessary to convene the forces of the asshole four to protect Yoel's person against unjust aggression
    [​IMG]
    tis merely self defence
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    can't believe I've been missing out on using cleric's hold person until now
    [​IMG]
    The reward: 8 sets of full plate mail and some spell scrolls. And only three peasants and a dog were killed in the chaos those guards caused.

    Heading a crime organization and a playhouse, how very Italian of Yoel
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    The liberator of Amn shall bare no slaving within his crime syndicate
    [​IMG]
    Here Yoel is being set upon by the guards after dealing with some shadow thieve business, guards attack Yoel every time he enters a part of Amn.

    Yoel soon realized how pointless doing ToB content was and returned to his bounty hunting. He also party dropped the gay EE companion at some point in his daze between 0 an 100% lucidity on his misnomer misadventure for this session

    Damn, Yoel ate a double flamestrike or some crazy shit and Viconia was perma-killed by trash mobs. I was playing like shit leading up to this though, not potion buffing, not full healing between fights, not using invisibility to avoid cleric spells, using my cleric in melee

    yes, probably should have turned back after losing my druid with confusion immunity spells. I must admit I played all of this all on one day under the influence as well the next segment, which was shortly doomed as well, but fear not! My pathetic struggles will only make the eventual triumph all the greater

    In other news I'm looking for 3-5 people for IWD1 MP, probably saturday with ironman on hard. Here are the big requirements: have a mic and show up, that's it and especially it. No need for any sad dog comments about how you are no good with games or tech or whatever. We can do other retro rpg mp as well, but for now I need to know who the showers are. Message me

    big whoops there, turned jaihera hostile. 230 pickpocketing ain't guaranteed on people like merchants, but I did get a mass invisibility scroll one time off these jokers. If only I didn't die multiple times my lv7 spells wouldn't suck so much

    Man this was a funny one. I did this five times perfectly but on this time I stopped right after killing the mage and thought about the stealthed rogue, and every other time I just knocked her out of stealth with a chaos spell. Well I said fuck it I already drank some potions, then I got killed by a 125 backstab. Often time we do things based on them working previously rather than having any sound basis

    Died here, come to think of it I only fought one beholder without the cloak of deflection, which you can get away with as opposed to three beholders. Without the correct tactics any way

    Also the good news is I did start the IWD mp, bad news is that I got zero replies and just used my existing steam friends
