    Wow, congrats. I seem to recall a few posts that would have made a remarriage a VERY BIG longshot . . . :)

    Hello there. I've been on SP for a while, though I haven't gotten around to making an account until now.

    Hi guys - this me = new here. Past cimes = helped out in modding forums for ES & stuff, played original BG ... decades? ago ??? Now doing BGII - and found your forum has The Best Walkthrough when (blush) I got stuck as usual ^^ And then I found something in the Planar Sphere Quest I did not find in your Walkthrough ... so want to post it to your DM there. Great to see you did not let your web site collapse!

    Hey raggidman, assuming you mean Montresor's walkthrough, he hasn't been around in a while, but you can try PMing him to see if he responds.

    And no worries, we're still alive and kicking. ;)

    :O alarms go off!!!! Dodges kicks mighty quickly ...

    hmmm - also into DragonAge - had the complete thing twice and both times it got stolen ... when I'm ready I will start again but want the full edition with all the extra quests before I do - since there's no chance I will simply be able to get a replacement download from bio-ware ^^

    If you are playing the Enhanced edition, i don't think the new content in there has been added into the walkthrough (like Tal said, the walkthrough hasn't been updated in quite a while.)

    Ty xosimi ... playing the original version. An old double edition Baal that has all the old stuff.

    Played BG back in the day and the enhanced edition looks a bit scary ^^

    I started playing the BG EE a while ago and I find the opposite.
    Back in my memory the encounter with e.g. the OGRE :jawdrop: south of the Friendly Arm was a deadly affair that killed my party several times until with tactics and luck the Ogre fell.
    Now in BG EE in higher resolution on a larger monitor my firstlevel party defeated the Ogre in the first try on "core rules" difficulty.
    Wasn´t the same as playing the original BG decades ago :geezer:

    The Ogre was never that bad as long as you either had archers or a spellcaster. He goes down in a single Sleep, or PW:D, then it's just a case of falling on him and giving him a kicking.

    Just make sure you double check which belt is which before equipping... :hmm:

    First thing i do in my games is collect some of the easy accessible items i don't plan on using (like the diamond hidden near xxar and montaron, and the ring of the princes+1 on the same map as that ogre) and head over to thalantyr's to sell those and then buy that wand of sleep.

    Using it you can trivialize a few encounters that would usually kill a lvl 1 character, and get some great loot and levels very quickly.
    When i'm decked out and have a few levels under my belt i use the remaining charges to clear the coast way of the ankhegs you find there - you can easily get to lvl 6/7 if you do so solo.
