Sorry guys for reading this a little late, I need the sleep. Anyway, I will try to get the patch and hopefully I won't have to hassle anyone anymore. I just have the TOB installed with SOA and that's it. I don't even have SK because it is a new computer I am playing on. Thank you so much peoples

Dear fellow posters, Ok, I know this post is old, but I seem to have the same problem. The only difference is that I have a new computer and I have deleted saved games but it still hasn't work. Even the golem from Chapter 1's prison won't talk to me because he 'appears busy'. Could it be the fact I ...

Cheese is high in cholesterol, so you have to take it in moderation. Anyway, I think it is brutally unfair for monsters that have to fight any high level triple class players. It is down right mean because you give them no chance. Spell sequencers, whirlwinds, stoneskins and cleric beef-ups are just...

Hi Gforce, The game is like Baldur Gate in the industrial revolution, with technology coming in to change the way people see things, you can choose to be a magician, technicial and about 20 other things you can be. There are no set class with leveling much like Diablo II where you get character poin...

I prefer using the flame and acid arrows because I feel like I am dealing some real pain out there (unless they reflect back).

Good novice hints 2

Having read the first one, I thought it went off topic a bit, so I thought it will be alright to post a newer thread with this one... The following tip is pretty basic, but I thought I should point them out anyway: Spellcaster Tips -Spells users can use level 1 Air spell 'vitality of air' to raise t...

I think a mod call Hellgate starts with a talk with Bessie Toone in the haunted Shrouded Hills Mine to open up a portal or something... Hope that helps... While we are in the topic of magic, I was wandering what spell can I open a magically-held chest? Cause unlock cantip doesn't open those chest an...

Well Unclescratchy, I think I will definately give it a try, although this game sounds like you have to play it a few times to get the hang of it... not that there's anything wrong with that! :D

Hi all, I had been playing fallout for the first time for the past month and loved it. Right now playing a bit of majesty and AOE2... I played the demo of Acranum a long time ago and I thought it was fun. However, it was very different from the games that I played eg Starcraft, Pharoah, BG1, BG2, D1...

Dear Sojourner, I don't have any mods because I left the game for 6 weeks because of work and exam. I also don't know whether the mods are compatible with TOB, and I remember that TDD is not compatible with TOB. I don't know how many are out there or where to find them either, but if it can help I w...

True neutral Human Ranger Mage, follower of Silvanus. I think that's pretty close, I had a 6 in human and 6 in half-elf. I guess I don't want to live that long. BTW, if you can't spell, your intelligent will be similar to an orc. An orc will be a very crap mage/sorcerer if you get the drift...

After a while I when back and check on my apprentices and they all went hostile at me. How do I get them back to friend...

Draconis, I remember once upon a time, I got my butt wallop 15 times in one day by him. I pondered upon giving up, but in the end the cheese reign supreme.

However, it is just one out of seven that is hard. Beholders are in vast numbers and they are all hard.

I think for a pure role playing point of view, it will be hard for a halfling like Frodo to have strength of 17. So an elf will be more logical with this view. However, you said you are a person who is not tall, and from a game-playing point of view, you want to play someone who resembles you. So a ...

I think it is only natural for the child of Bhaal trying to takeover the whole town, rather than be restricted to a lowly stronghold quest.
