Icewind Dale II Designer Diary #7

And in more IWD2 news, Chris Avellone paid a visit to RPGVault to dish out another Designer Diary, this time giving out some adventuring advice, revealing another magic item, showing off some new spell icons, and more. A snippet to follow:

    Charisma Based Skills: Charisma-based skills, like Bluff, Intimidate, and Diplomacy, will allow you to reap greater financial rewards from quests in Targos as well as short-circuit some quests simply by persuading people to let you do things "your way." You won't lose any experience by doing things this way - in fact, you'll be rewarded for using your Charisma-based skills to bend the quests you encounter to your will. Isn't that cool? Sure it is!
