    Yeah, I think it's normal. It has happened to me in another area as well.

    I've never had that before and I'm sure I've wandered around the docks in metal armour before. How long do you have to be there before it happens and does it inflict a lot of damage?

    I don't know if it's because of the metal armour, but it can only happen when it's raining. A Lightning Bolt will come from the sky and do as much damage as the scroll.

    I've never had that happen to me either. That's pretty neat, you should submit it as a screenshot maybe. And I thought the disable weather option doesn't really affect the game!

    That's what must have happened to me last time I played through the game. I had just faught Kangaxx and my party was pretty beat up...I was about to head over to the Harper Hold to pick Jaheria up to heal my party up. But I left them standing around the Hold while I got some dinner, and when I got back, Minsc was dead. :( :rolling:

    Never got hit in BG2, but many times in BG1.
    There was so much outside questing to do in BG1, and it always seemed to be raining on me. ;)

    If you've never seen it raining, then you must have the weather option off. Or maybe you're just lucky :D

    I always have weather on.
