Originally posted by two: I just remembered another favorite crazy rule in AD&D, or at least BG's version of it. Am I crazy, or is it easier to resurrect a character FROM THE DEAD than heal your figher from 1 hp back to 120? As I recall there is no good "heal to max HP" spell at a reasonable level ...

Originally posted by two: I don't want spell casters to cast any/every spell they want all the time, but what about a spell point system where a 10th level mage gets 25 points to cast any spell he has learned: 25 magic missles.

I had a similar problem in different inns. It won't let me rest, but if I start selecting different rooms (i.e. switch from noble to merchant, and then back to noble), the innkeeper will all of a sudden let me rest.

The problem is that you are a high elf, and she is a drow. High elves and drow are bitter enemies.

Play Torment. I enjoyed it much better than IWD (in fact, I got so bored with IWD that I never finished it). The setting is exotic. The NPC's are "unique". And you really don't know what is going on till about halfway through the game. In addition, your character is unique in that his alignment is d...

Anyone else notice that Blackrazor is very underpowered in this game? Too bad they didn't implement Blackrazor the way it's written up. Image

Then again, if they did, the game would be no challenge at all on any kind of difficulty level.
