    When you guys said Neb I thought you meant the dude in Trademeet who always talks to you. Neb is pretty scary, the wierd thing is that it's a Duergar thats points you in his direction.

    The Demon Wraith in Watchers Keep is kind of scary to.

    Yes, Neb the child-killer is vile, there's no question about that, as such people exist in real life. As for someone thinking Neb was Neeber, the Trademeet cousin to BG1's Noober, all I can say is that I've met people like those two idiots, and while they may mot be frightening like Neb, a demon, or an illithid, they certainly are more annoying than anyone you're likely to meet.

    I wonder if the bioware/black isle people got some feedback from BG1 wherein people said they wished they'd had a chance to kill old Neb, so they gave them the chance in BG2.

Yeah, neb is bad too though. then again, the **** irecinus does to you and imoen is pretty nasty also.. like that poor guy who got locked in the tank 4 ages. and his torture of jahieras husband. The hardest fight though is demogorgon and u dun even get any xp!

    Illithids: They're way too alien for us to even understand their motivations.

    Bone Golems have always struck me as things I wouldn't really want to meet ;)

    I Don't find Neb to be scary but just sick, and there is a strong realism about him i do agree. i wouldn't really like to run in to a beholder, cept prehaps the one from sendai's enclave cause he was pretty cool :cool: , again illithid down a dark ally would also scare the crap outta you, imagin actually running into it all those tentacle thingys touchin your face thats pretty horrible. i would agree with duryn that it is the demon which you can only kill by healing, we would have to shove antibiotics and paracetamol down its throat these days. lol

    I think dopplegangers (not sure about spelling here) are the scariest. Not only they have a scary voice, they also can take anybody's appearance and strike when you least expect.

    Scariest creatures.... Well, Gauths freaked me out the first time I met them. And so did Mind flayers.

    However, the worst for me was the Ravager and bone swords. They were just plain nasty.

    Yes, I'm sure if you are sleeping at night and you are awakened by the Ravager the first thing you will be thinking is "oh my god look at his damage reduction!"

    Illithids. Something that stuns you, then uses it's tentacles to rip open your head and feast on your brains is just wrong.
    I would also say driders, but they're not in BG, so does that actually count?

    The fact that you'd be conscious and aware but completely helpless is what pushes the brain-gobbling squiddies over the line for me. That, and it's nothing more than sitting down for dinner to them.

    [​IMG] i find a bunch of the monsters in the game to be scary. the first thing i thought of was irenicus, hes so cold and calculating not to mention he lacks a soul! then i thought some more and someone mentioned neb and i thought yeah neb is scary and the realism of his character is just plain ol' freaky. and neb reminded me of reijek and he is pretty sick too. but then i thought some more and it struck me! :eek: the scariest person is noober!!!!!!! noober is scary!!!

    I thought Bodhi was really creepy because a) the way she stands just gave me the willies. I dunno why, and b) her portrait is grotesque. Blood all over her mouth and such.

    Bodhi talking...at 3 in the morning...in a dark room...THAT is scary!

    Also, any dragon...they ARE scary...imagine a hulking great lizard rearing up and shooting huge gouts of flame at you...

    I'm surprised this hasn't come up yet, but don't Giant Spiders deserve a mention here? I cant remember their excat size as something to compare them to, but they sure are BIG! Also, carrion crawlers. 'nuff said.

    To me Bone Golems are the most creepy creatures. Their attack makes my hairs stand on end. :aaa: Definitely scary.

    Irenicus - almost totally lacking in empathy, a trait which isn't totally removed from the real world, since it's quite plausible to run into somebody who's like like that.

    Kangaxx, te whole description of his body parts creeps me out. The battle itself is enough to scare peeps into an early grave with all those imprisonments, lol. Worth the scariness though, for that ring.....

    I'd have to say either Cyric (though I can't remember if you fight him or not...but since he's there in the game, I say he counts) or Amellysan. Sorry; but nothing could freak me out more than crazy-bloodthirsty gods out to kill anything/anyone in their way (unless of course those gods looked like wasps...*shudder*).

    Korgan scares me the most. He's scary for me because I love having him as an NPC but if you make a wrong move with him he'll attack you. Given his history you wouldn't want him to take watch... ever.
