    [​IMG] played through both games thrice - I always do all the quests in each game and have completed all through with one character twice as I remade her after I completed the game.

    But to be no more, I can no longer play my favourite game :wail:

    2 times thru SoA, and actually, I'm not thru ToB.
    I seem to be the one who always get a game ten years after everyone else.
    1st time with a NG female elven sorcerer (no doubt the best class)and Anomen romance
    2nd time with a TN female half-elven avenger (had to play druid just cuz everyone says that they suck. well, maybe Cernd and Jaheira does, but my great druid rules!)and Kelsey romance
    I'm just about to start ToB, but I have to download Kelsey first :)

    I have started SoA countless times, but only finished once! I have various characters at different points in the game - if I ever get time I will finish them off.

    Played ToB once, as a conclusion to my SoA Kensai/mage - there is something mysterious and exciting about a dual katana wielding fireball throwing unarmed machine.

    Must be over 12 times, at least, and I'll also played halfway threw about 100 times.

    One thing that I now is that I've finished it with a Kensai 4 times now.

    Nothing beats a Kensai/Thief on a high level.
    Btw. Does anyone now a good patch to make it harder, I've used Achention (or what it's called) but I whant some more.

    How about Weimer's Improved Tactical Encounters and Solafein mod? Also, the Improved Stronghold mods make the game tougher.

    We're still on our first time through, but since the Main Char is a dwarf we're totally missing out on the romance aspects! I definitely want to try it again, with romance options. Does a femal protagonist end up pregnant by Anomen?! Ick! :aaa:

    Should not... Anomen is a cleric and all... ;) But hey; donĀ“t give up hope! You might get lucky. :p

    Now is going my 11th(I guess) game, this time with some of the mods. Next I should probably try soloing; there has been so much talk of it that it must be something quite interesting.

    Many, many times.

    1st: Kensai, dualled to Sorcerer when ToB came out.
    2nd: Swashbuckler.

    And then many times after that for romances with various kit combos and alignments.

    Personal fav: NE Kensai/Sorcerer getting it on with Viconia, dragging each of the good characters along for fun. Keldorn almost killed me!

    Now I am trying it with my first Paladin - I never have done the lawful good thing, and I am actually having a harder time with it than any other time through - I keep forgetting that I am LG and messing myself up. Oh well.

    Edit: Without cheats: first time.
    With cheats every time after that!

    I've played too many times and sadly I'm quite annoyed at some of them:
    Soa only:
    1)Fighter - I don't even want to say what party they were so rubbish
    2)Fighter(take two) - I don't know why I did a fighter again!!!
    3)Fighter(take three) - I feel like sending myself back to the past to prevent me from doing a fighter again...
    Soa & Tob
    4)Fighter/Mage - nice though still with party...
    5)Duet - Monk + Sorcerer - my favorite game
    6)Duet - Monk + Sorcerer - over a network (i had to play it again!)
    7)Archer - Solo
    8)Kensai lvl 37 - Mage lvl 40(Solo) - people call me a cheat for using exp cap remover but after playing this many times it get's boring...
    9) - current - swashbuckler<fighter - solo

    Out of all the classes the only ones i'm willing to play are fighting classes or mage variants .A theif here and there isn't that bad either. For some reason i can't stand blunt weapon users or goody two shoes paladins...I have to say i'm a big supporter of pure hack n' slash.
