(sorry about double posting, but I hit the post limit) Q: How do I get some Good XP? I've been "Questing" and am currently in the sewers trying to do multiple Quests and kill some bloody adventurers who keep kickin' my ass. "Those Six" are pretty powerful, so don't feel bad. If you're really hurting...

yes, but, having them all in one place can be helpful. Besides his questions aren't that difficult to answer. Be nice to the newbie! Anyway, on to the questions (hey, if I choose to answer, I can, right?) Q: How do you use wands and horns? A: Click on a character. Below, on the quickbar, you should ...

There are free tools for download, I believe, that converts Infinity Engine's rather strange sound format to something more amenable to modern-day music players (like .mp3 or .wav). Don't know where you'd go to download them, however. About a year ago I downloaded one to listen to Planescape Torment...

Yeah, but the Anti-Paladin can't "fall" for doing good deeds, per se, and in my humble opinion isn't as strong as the real Paladin, as he's missing his turning ability and casting ability, since he's a Fighter kit. Not banging on Tactics, it's a great mod, but the hardcoding of Paladins makes it rea...

Mind Flayers and Vampires are some of the most powerful creatures in BGII, although not quite up there with Demi-liches, Liches, and Dragons. If you're having trouble with Mind Flayers, remember that, as SP101 said, they drain intelligence (Flayers are brain-suckers, they eat brains for food like Ha...

Ahh yes. Good ol' Gamebanshee forums, where the people are NICE for a change. I have to say, have you noticed it's always the "oldtimer" games that get the good, openminded people? I've checked out the forums for some of the newer games (like say Doom3), and it seemed to be filled with testosterone ...

You can't. Ignus WILL use it against you in the final fight IF you let him live that long (which, being so powerful, you probably didn't). Darn, I shoulda said that you can get it with Ignus's head (in case you didn't get the joke, usually you have to cut off a body part to get Ignus's spells, i.e. ...

I think the biggest problems lie in the fact that RPGs in general do not make a lot of money. And let's face it, the industry is interested primarily in the bottom line. At the moment, I'm pinning my hopes on BioWare, the lone developer that's still going strong who seems firmly set on making good R...

It all depends. If you're going to powergame and only get the bare minimum for getting Arcane Archer and then pumping everything else into Arcane Archer for massive amounts of power behind Enchant Arrow, then just get Tumble for the AC bonus and some Discipline. You don't need to be particularly ste...

New (and improved!) ways to prove you're right!

I've seen many, many very "unique" ways that people have come up with to prove their point . Here are some of my favorites (be sure to post yours!): Proof by Burst of Outrage : "YOU DON'T THINK IT'S TRUE?!! WELL SHOW ME A COUNTEREXAMPLE, WHY DON'T YOU?!!" Proof by Relentless Insistance : "It's true!...

Proof by sheer idiocy?

I've discovered something quite distressing and disturbing in my time in what apparently amounts to America's higher education. It seems that, despite any and all education recieved by the individuals attending my university, my compatriots insist upon using rather primitive methods of proof, method...

If you're worried about inventory space, you may want to dump extra (especially heavy) items in containers from which you can easily retrieve. My suggestion is the rat-infested warehouse in Tarant. The gnome in front will ask you to clear his warehouse of rats in return for whatever you might find i...
