I agree with Cren. Play the game at least the first time in vanilla mode. Save the mods for refreshing subsequent runs thru the game. First see the game that the developers wanted you to see. I played thru the whole saga only once (I have yet to cast a real-life Time Stop spell). I ran a single-clas...

Check your installation's game version with the official "last" version, i.e. do you have the TotSC patch installed?

(You don't need the BG patch, because installing the expansion pack automatically patches the main game. The only patch you may need is the TotSC patch.)

No matter what classes you have, a 6-character party will beat the game no-problem. However, you mentioned inter-party banter being important. I should point out that there are pairs of NPC's that provide more banters when both are present in the party at the same time, than they normally would if t...

I actually quite like Jaheira as a character, but she really doesn't fit all that well into an evil party.
You have Viccy for healing, so you'll manage that way.

I second this notion.

I think this dude did the soundtrack for Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal.

A fantastic quote in the comments under this article: "You don't need to save the world. You just need a goal which is very important to the character, and obstacles that are so much greater than yourself.

At the very least, their hair colors are almost the same. And their hair is short and straight, and parted a little to the side (Leliana's hair parts a little to the right, Immy's hair parts a little to the left).

I'm fairly certain your Reputation score has something to do with an NPC disappearing, or staying put, when you dismiss them. In early chapters Jaheira (and Khalid), for example, would stay put if dismissed. But Jaheira always disappeared whenever I dismissed her (taking Khalid too!) after adventuri...

I liked him in The Omen. But his Time Bandits personna does seem to be his movie meal ticket.

In fact, I always thought the Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn artwork for Jon Irenicus always looked a little like Warner's character from Time Bandits.

Methinks the only way you'll be able to play/roleplay a fallen cleric is by self-imposed rules and penalties. First, based on your roleplaying style, decide what initiates becoming a "fallen" cleric. Maybe your cleric becomes fallen when your party's rep score falls below a certain point? Then, deci...

I second this sentiment. If this is your first time through the story, you really need to take Imoen and Yoshimo.
