I found it useful to buy the first 4 or 5 before doing the quests that give you rep points...then do them and you are 20 in no time!

You could always use Shadowkeeper to change the sex of your character. You would look female, play female, but prolley have access to the female romances..

Dunno if that would work, but a potential option.

Re-reading your first post Grunt-boy, I agree that making the party and developing a party is more fun then playing with a bunch of annoying NPC's. I have a post on the RPG board that poses a way to actually have cool dialog and still make your party yourself... Anyway, having played both games I li...

I had a different party... Ranger Fighter/Thief Cleric Bard Druid Mage That party rocked. I found myself using the Druid to so stage setting spells for the major combats, entangle, etc...Cleric just cast the Protection from Evil and Defensive Harmony. Druid could heal as well. Bard was for identific...

Neat Alternative Chargen Method...

I was just thinking about a different way to do character generation that I haven't seen. I have seen stuff close, but never actually work out this way. I think it addresses a couple of the problems I have with current methods. Issues: 1 - I like making my entire party. I like having that level of c...

My Favorite RPGS

1 - ARIA - A great complex game.
2 - Torg - Just plain fun.
3 - AD&D - Good Old Fun.
4 - Vampire - Good Dark Fun, great concept.
5 - Cyberpunk - Nothing quite like shooting civilians by accident.. Image

I enjoy threads like this becuase it really brings out the verbose folks who loved the nature of PnP roleplaying...

Game Stability

I am not overly impressed with the stability of this game. Several times I have had the game exit out to Windows with no messages as to the cause. The game just disappears. I had this happen with Heros of Might and Magic III as well because of machine configuration. I have a dual PPro 200 system wit...

Halflings have been around for a long time in a number of forms. In AD&D they are the race of small people that look like humans, just more 'rumbly tumbly'. Not sure what Gynax modeled them after but I always kind envisioned them as Tolkien's Hobbits. Pretty much the same mannerisms. The Halfling gu...

Actually what I meant was whether it was worth playing with room in my party for NPC's or if I could get the same enjoyment from using the six characters I created... I prefer creating the party myself and playing. Being forced to use one player and pick up a bunch of NPC's was not my idea of the mo...

Thanks about the strength tip...That must be the problem...

Anyone have any suggestions on the first question about playing multiplayer vs. single...ie, using NPC's or not..

Thanks again!

Multiplayer and Dual Class issue

Two questions: 1 - Is there any point in playing the game in single player mode aside from dealing with annoying dialog from Imoen and the like? I know about the romances and couldn't care less. I just want to know if I am missing something by creating my game in the multiplayer, building my party a...
