Kagain crashes BG1

I just recently reinstalled BG1 to play it again with my new computer with WinXP. It worked fine until I went to Beregost and took Kagain in my party. After he joined the party went walking to Beregost, and the game crashed the whole WinXP, forcing a reboot. After one of the crashes I got a blue scr...

I played a straight kensai trough SoA and ToB. Well, he hasn't much use for tactics (they're for the NPC:s...) but he does quite well with simple brute force. In the end of ToB he was wielding Foebane +5 and Angurvadal +5, had 24 total strength and 5 attacks per round (9 with imp. haste). His THACO ...

I've never had a single-class thief in my party, Jan is a good enough thief, AND a mage.

Clay golem page

Where can I find it? "Cespenar's Forge" page of GameBanshee says it's in Rock the Minotaur's safe, but where is that?

Effects of Charisma

What effects does a character's charisma have in the game? I heard that talking to the Black Dragon involves a charisma roll. Other than that, I don't know any.

You can't handle objects during the time stop, because time is stopped for them. There's no time, so they can't move in it. Right...? Seemingly useless spells can be used for advantage in tough situations by a creative player. A pity that few of these uses are implemented in BG2. I mean, casting dea...

Magic missile is good because it gets better as the caster gets stronger. That makes it usable for high level mages. I remember playing a PnP campaign where my party of mages (a theme campaign) fought a pit fiend. We thought what to do a while, and could think of nothing better at the moment than to...

Maybe some hidden feature would be funny: you attack a squirrel -> the squirrel releases a chain contingency with 3 Abi-Dalzim's Horrid Wilting spells stored in it ;)

Point here is, my character was NOT good, he was neutral. Generally he isn't just after his own good, but seeing Sarevok, someone who just recently almost got him killed provoking him to attack, he, as a fighter, responds with aggression. Just like Jaheira in the beginning of SoA is ready to tear to...

I think the alignment change system in the end of SoA sucks. In my opinion, the alignment change should be balanced so that the more evil paths the character chooses, the more evil he gets. But if he takes four good paths end one evil, the balance should be in the side of good. My lawful neutral ken...

How long in game time does it usually take for you guys to finish Baldur's Gate? Is there any known "world record" for that, with no edited characters or such of course.
