Raidri,

If like domi points out, Jahiera's next sweeze would be a male in your party right now. Makes you thing if Jan's turnip stories are really about turips!

What about Jan? surprised its taken this long for his name to be dropped. Lets face it, your just killing space until you get Imoen back, so Jan's limitations wont be as great a liablity for you. Advantages of Jan. Part Spell Caster (adds a few party xps for learning some duplicate scrolls you have ...

Try the game with a class you hate on paper. Maybe by trying to work around the weaknesses, you can learn to appreciate the strengths

What is important about Minsc is his personality. Very few of the NPCs make sense to me... Why does Yoshi have 0 points in the one skill that sets him apart (set traps)? Why did Nalia dual before she excelled at any one skill (parental pressure?)? There are others but you get the point. The game can...

The scroll bit is primarily for dual Wizards. As a cleric your god gives you your spells, and those green scrolls are memorizable like the mage scrolls. Of course it can still help a lot to dismiss all but your wizard, then start reading scrolls. A heavy trap area (after you've cleared the other thi...

This is just conjecture based on my game xp... a Hide in Shaddows roll will be needed to first disappear into the shadows. Furthur checks are made from the average of HiS + MS. Now where Move Silently is important is when sneaking up to enemies. Sometimes you will notice that the enemies shift into ...

It is funny you would bring that up... playing a mage, i've always stayed away from the contact spells like shocking grasp. in bg1 i tried making a decent h(f/m) that only used touch spells, but never really got into the charater. while reading that post, i started day dreaming of the posiblities of...

@Duran Getting past the thief debate for a sec, I would leave your 6th slot open. Many of the NPCs have sub quests that might me useful for you to go through for magical items, cash, and experience. Once these are done, you can let them go, or keep them. Since you and Minsc can trade frontline and r...

If your going from swahbuckler to anything else, dual at 10th level. Every five levels your AC and THAC0 improve, so stick it out for the extra 71k XPs.
