What does everyone name their PC? I always have these short names like "Kato", "Pio", "Roha" cause it looks more natural in casual conversations, but then it doesn't look right when you are addressed formally, like by the mayor of Trademeet. Of course, if it's an "experimental" character, they alway...

Xyx, are you seriously saying that every patron of the Crooked Cane, the bartender, and the guards at the City Gates know about the Lich, and they are just going about their business, having a drink and chatting? Seems like maybe they would find another bar to hang out in or something.

Sue me, but I gotta bring this classic back!

C'mon, you gotta love it. My favorite so far = Bigby's Middle Finger. Oh how I wish it was real.
My contribution:

Power Word: Retreat!

Power Word: Reload.

I agree somewhat with the view that there are too many overpowered monsters in SOA. I think that bringing the cumbersome D&D combat system over to a computer makes combat so much easier that enemies like Beholders, who were incredibly slow to fight in PnP because of all of their rays, suddenly are a...

Xyx, I have downloaded your improved Beholder scripts and have sampled them a little so far (in the Beholder dungeon in the Underdark). So far I am very pleased with the results. They killed my PC three times! I have Throne of Bhaal installed and have not noticed any problems so far (I will notify y...

Kensai this.
Kensai that.
Kensai those.

Has anyone ever played the game w/ a Kensai without dual-classing? Anyone? I thought so. I'm all for people finding their own thing and all, but seriously, has anyone ever used the Kensai kit for anything but a platform to get bonuses and then dual out?

Yeah! One of the bards has to be the "bad" one, he gets into lots of fight and always drinks too much at the copper coronet, and after the underdark he leaves the group for awhile to do rehab!

What about the NPC's relationships? Keldorn's wife cheats on him and Jan saves his beloved's daughter from the abusive husband and then they just get back together and leave Jan out in the cold. "Realistic" dysfunctionalism.
