    As usual, I don't get the joke in this week's screenshot. Do I need to have played Heart of Winter to understand it?

    No. Don't you see the heaps of bones from all the dead whatever-they-are?

    I feel really dumb now. You've pointed out the bones and I still don't get the joke.

    Is it meant to be a joke, or merely a "look what we killed!"?

    Well, to me it's funny just because "All in a days work" is just a casual reference that nothing special has happened, this is just the usual. Then there's piles and piles of dead skeleton bones which is definitely not just the usual everyday thing.

    Hahaha, I really like this week's screenshot. I wish Rumar had had something to say, though. Good stuff :thumb:

    Yeah I nearly bust a gut laughing when it happened.

    I actually thought that it was even funnier when it became obvious that Rumar's script was broken due to the developers not anticipating such an outcome but I have always had a bit of a weird sense of humour.

    Hey which mods are used in that new screenshots, I neither recognize that potion and since when can you dual wield in Icewind Dale I?

    I think dual-wielding was Keneth's own modding... the potion might be as well.

    No, I don't think he's ever released anything. You could try sending him a PM here and asking him about it, though I don't know how often he checks the boards. He's in the chatroom now and then though.

    Dual Wielding in IWD can be achieved with Dalekeeper by manually placing a weapon in the offhand. No penalties, only advantages. :) You have to have both the expansions to do it, though.

    There's nothing special about it, potions are just custom images and dual-wielding is supported by the engine but you need a workaround to get the weapon into your offhand like dalekeeper or a custom script.
