Replies: 54

Gothic 1 and, to a lesser extend, 2 are actually story-driven. Gothic 3 is all sandbox. There are many more "Story-driven" RPG's, but all of the ones that i know off, are combat heavy. Other than the likes of Suikoden & Co, you have pretty much depleted the pool of RPG's that aren't old, sandboxy, c...

Bodhi. I will use only 4 characters, and add Solaufein to Bodhi (or at least try) to simulate a party that had a bioware Romance + Solaufein. Insanity, SCSII.. bla bla.. The usual. Perhaps i'll make a requirement of killing Solaufein before Bodhi. Edit : Yours was the comment about script block? It ...

Added link to Twisted Rune fight video [url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NnQC8BcnxdY&hd=1"](Like this)[/url]. I will probably re-record it in the future, with a bit "slower" pace though.

Regards!

"Wait just a minute.." : Twisted Rune fight video (SCSII)

As you may know, my LP has recently came back to live. To celebrate, we challenged Twisted Rune encounter with SCSII and my very own "finishing touches" to lich scripting (Sometimes i do stuff right!) The result is a very short video, only a minute and 20 seconds (with paused moments cut out, and ti...

The level is determined when the NPC is spawned (Aka : When you first enter the area) The level can only be from one of the SOA Pre-set character levels, not the ToB one. Additionally, there may be some other requirements. For example : Highest party levels only showing after you finish Underdark..

It's the same with Dead Island. Amazing trailer - boring, repetitive game that insults the trailer in every way. Edit : Correct me if i'm wrong, but the trailer was made before EA bought Bioware.. Right? They 'announced' the purchase of Bioware in 2007, but 'tis does not mean that they didn't push f...

After a certain level, you start receiving much less health. That's all i have, as it's not a sorcerer related question..

1 hit point is a bit weird, but perhaps it's just bad luck with rolls?

Unrelated : I suggest using G3fixpack instead of baldurdash, unless you have reasons to use the 'dash.

-Deus Ex: Human Revolution had the same problem, but the fact that you magically lose the ability to take someone out with a stealth takedown and they can absorb bullets unrealistically just because they have the title of 'boss' was pretty : /.

You'd have to remind me what exactly was on the board, but i am almost certain that all of the quest can be completed after visiting the castle, and at any other point in the game that occurs BEFORE the last chapter.

If Minsc killed one less character - any one - we would have won that one. If i restocked the rod before the fight - we would have won. If Edwin's Spell trigger wasn't interrupted - ..bla And so on. Simply everything that could go wrong DID go wrong. :laugh: Ah the joy of Enrage! Fanart? Go for it!

You mean attributes, such as Strength, Agility and so on?
In ID1 you do not increase them every 4 levels, as it uses an older D&D system.

It's the EULA.
