    You've played too much when you go to the shops and instead of buying milk and suger, you pick up a quiver or two of arrows and maybe some bolts.

    You know you've played too much when...

    You name your cat 'Aerie' (yes, I did) :D
    You assign a +1, +2, etc. enchantments to all your collectable daggers and swords
    Your game has more modded content than origanal content
    Your party has more mod-NPCs than Bioware-NPCs...and they talk more too. :love:
    You have a full install of the game, with the ToB disk copied to your hard drive as an .iso so you don't have to use the CDs
    You know in your heart that BG2 is the best game ever made :rolling:

    He, he. so true. :D

    Plus, I've added .iso files of all other BG CD's too (BG1 and BG2) to my drive, in case something horrible should happen to the real disks... (which are safely tucked away on the bookshelf... out of reach... mine or anybody elses...)

    Ooo, how about this?:

    You try to introduce the game to your girlfriend who's not a gamer and right in the very start you tell her that she can choose whatever dialogue options with Minsc-in-the-cage. Of course she chooses 'Umm...I think we should...split up'

    September is the 9th month, so shouldn't it be Elient not Flamerule?

    Sorry that list is long, it got send to me in an email. I believe it to be a compiling of several thread such as this, as such, some "signs" pertain to DnD not so much BG specifically.

    You've ever asked someone "Are you a gnome or a halfling? I can't tell."

    You are disgusted by the trolls in fantasy movies, like the mountain troll in Harry Potter and the cave troll in The Fellowship of the Ring, not because they are so disgusting, but because they look nothing like "real" trolls.

    You can remember the names of the two black dragons in the game but can't remember the name of the attractive member of the opposite sex that sits next to you in class.

    You never take your Avenger Druid out of his shapeshift.

    When you are bored with the game, you keep playing anyway.

    You put Haer'Dalis, Jan, and Sarevok in a party together just so you can hear them all say their death dialogue at the same time.

    Your medical plan is to not catch a disease.

    at the check-out counter of the video rental store, you ask if you can see their "special wares" And pay 50 Gp's in order to do so.....

    The only time you remember to eat is when you get that randomly generated "Your characters don’t have to eat but you do" tip from the programmers during the load screen.

    Your dog ran away after you tried to make your special dogstew to get the mean Umber-mother-in-law occupied while you ran like hell.

    Right before going into an important business meeting or class, you rest up to 24 hours STRAIGHT to regain your strength and mental capabilities...

    When someone is being aggressive to you, you calmly state your intent to discuss the matter with them. Then you punch them in the face. Then you re-state your non-violent intention to talk with them. Then you punch them in the face again

    In company meetings you search for the dialogue option that will p*ss of your enemies and make them turn aggressive (usually option no.3) so you can get more experience (and possibly fired).

    You buy a sandwich at a shop, then steal a second one of exactly the same type before the shopkeeper has time to leave. Why have one Cheese & Onion sarnie when you can have another one exactly the same (even when you are only really hungry enough to eat one and then try SELL IT BACK TO THE SHOPKEEPER, then steal it again, then sell it back, then steal it again......

    You often get yourself arrested at the local morgue for trying to loot dead people.

    When your friend says she had a good party on the weekend you ask her if she kept Minsc or took Keldorn.

    Normally when beginning a fight at the pub you start of with your famous head-butt now instead you go strait for the eyes !!

    you eat with a knife in each hand because you spent your proficiency stars on "two-weapon style" instead of "fork"

    And you call pubs "taverns" and barmaids "serving wenches". You also have 2 black eyes because of this and your friends don't want to go to 'taverns' with you. Most of the time you do go to the 'tavern' your friends (or "party members" as you call them) are most uncomfortable as you proceed to loot anything that isn't pinned down upstairs and pickpocket the owner and any patrons who look better dressed than the rest of the 'peasants'.

    a graveyard when you need money, and
    bars and police stations when you need work.

    You're really ticked you can't find anything better than studded leather at the clothing stores.

    You are a lost cause if:

    You can spell "Thaxll'ssillyia" (but u got hooked long before that....)

    You deleted all your porn to make room for more savegame files. Or deliberately went out and bought a 200gb hard drive

    You have memorized and can recite the actual words for casting each spell.

    You reach for the salt and pepper and say, "Let's give it a good shake and SEE what falls out!"

    You carry around a backpack full of broken junk looking for a guy named Cromwell.

    As you drive from one computer to the next, A driver cuts in front of you on the freeway, and you cast Breach before you give him the "Finger of Death".

    After being cut off in traffic, screaming, "You will suffer! You will ALL suffer!!" while furiously pounding your horn.

    When you get into a fight at the local bar:

    -You beat him up from the distance with a chair juuuuust in case he could level drain.

    you talk to everyone you see asking them if they have any Quests.

    you ask for a Peasant room at the hotel, unless you are injured. . .

    When cornered by a particularly ugly girl in a bar the egress options that run through your mind are:

    - Drink a potion ('beer') to make the fight easier
    - Have a crack at her but claim 'My weapon has no effect'

    Tell your girlfriend: "Yeah, you're a fine looking strumpet."

    *you run up and start attacking statues thinking they are golems

    *every lock to every door in your house needs a diiferent key

    If you hunt for animal skins.

    If you start to carry holy water for protection.

    If cars & busses becomes meaningless and start to walk everywhere.

    You consider your musically talented friends "Bards" and expect them to play music when you are in a fight.

    You consider stay-sharp knives Daggers +1.

    When you are in a pet store you try and find out what each animals special abilities are.

    Your friends start calling you "Balders Nerd".

    you wake up from your dream, swearing that you have just been attacked by a monster, and your BG2 party didn't try to save you.

    A bunch of big rowdy louts are making pests of themselves in your favourite bar, so you retire to just out of their sight and start fumbling for a Cloudkill wand.

    You're scared to go to sleep, because you reckon you're due for an "Irenicus nightmare"

    if you actually try to carry a little blue bag full of chain mail armor and misc weapons, while wearing full plate armor, weilding three weapons and a shield, a gigantic helmet, and carrying a back pack with 5 potions, 4 quivers of arrows, not to mention the 3 quivers that are equiped at your side, misc armor and weapons, and it all adds up to 500lbs.... Then you try to kick the crap out of 5 bikers, 2 fat guys with shotguns, and a priest...... And the only thing that does not make sence to you is why the priest does not cast any spells

    You search through sewers, guarded buildings, and graveyards for lots of impressive goodies. Upon finding some hobo's rags, you proudly proclaim: "Cloak of the Sewers!" and expect to be turned into a mustard jelly.

    Upon finding a grave, you look for stakes and then wait for the little sword symbol to appear.

    You start muttering some words in the middle of the street really loudly. When you see police rushing at you, you exclaim in anger: "Must I get that stinking license in EVERY city!!!!"

    You're teachers gives you a read book to read and you tell him/her you can't read it since you're not an arcane spell caster.

    When you check in on what's been happening at the office, you wondered if everyone of your minions had "slow" cast on them by a evil mage.

    While watching wrestling you wonder what level barbarians each of them are.

    You meet the woman of your dreams, find out she has a cat, and then dump her, because you don't want to spend the rest of your life with a Chaotic Neutral person.

    • A couple of new workers start at your office, and you introduce yourself by your name, adding "but you simians may refer to me as 'Sir', if you prefer a less syllable intensive workout."

    When you are in a tavern, and an ugly girl starts talking to you, you wonder why your Spell Trigger and Contingencies didn't kick in.

    You always stick your hand down every toilet/urinal/drain, hoping to come up with a long lost "artifact" of considerable power.

    You search through your girlfriends jewelry box after "battle" to see if she has the missing pommel gem you need for your +4"longsword"

    You are walking down the street, you hear a couple of cops talking about a missing priest, and you immediately head for the sewers

    You are walking through a shopping mall with a floor of large red and white tiles, and you carefully skirt around the "red" tiles

    You expect your dumped friends to run after you to make sure you don't want them hanging around anymore, and then agree to wait in place until you decide to return for them.

    You pickpocket any chicken you see just incase it happens to have swallowed any rare gems.

    When your at the cinema and some idiot is talking in front of you, you grab a handful of red skittles/m&m's and proceed to throw them at the back of the offender's head. When they turn around to face you, assure them that your "magic missiles" was just the start and if they still don't stop talking - wave your mars bar under their nose and assure them if they don't shut up you will smite them with your "wand of fire"

    I was thoroughly disgusted they were killed without fire or acid! What kind of "trolls" were they anyway? :D

    Well I have killed a Troll in BGII without fire or Acid. Just the backhand of justice from Minsc.

    But I would have to say I do agree, the troll in Harry Potter is an affront to what I know a troll to be.

    How dare hollywood once again punch my childhood in the balls. I grew up on this game, and I am going to make damn sure my kids do to!!!!

    Quiet tales of hamsters are foolish, but a father and his sons that tear evil limb from limb? now that's scary!!

    On a slightly off topic note, I played IWD2 this whole weekend, and even dreamed about it last night, cant remember what I dreamed though. I do remember it was slightly unpleasant, like running into a monster whose immunities I could not defeat.

    ... when you hear the word "godchild" and your first thought is Bhaalspawn, rather then "someone who has a godmother/godfather".

    when you leave gold coins by your bedside everytime you sleep so the innkeeper can collect it..

    when during Health classes you ask your teacher toi cast a healing spell or two

    when you get paranoid during staff meetings, believing the teachers are forming a Council of Six :p

    when you think that ministers/pastors at churches are actually teaching you cleric spells..

    I was gonna post something similar, good thing I checked the thread first.
    I was considering Minsc, Jaheira, Viconia, and especially Imoen and Edwin!

    This really takes the cake!
