In addition, sidequests are still available in Chapter 3 (after you pay up 15000gp, that is), so if you think you need more money to buy better spells etc or more XP, you can do so. Also, don't forget to pick up parts of a really nice weapon while you are at the Keep. As far as I remember, it won't ...

Sain, have you played any RPG before? If so, what have you played, and what did you think about it?
We can recommend games better if you tell us what you like or dislike. :)

I have just gone through Okami. Fought the last battle in tears. I thought the game was balanced well between the sad, tearful scenes (there are quite a few of those) and humour (dancing old men etc). And the graphic and music were fantastic.

Now, I have to go through again.

Quite frankly Minerva, you seem to think that no one should ever critisize another country for doing something they consider to be wrong. Amphetamines are illegal in this country, and for manufacturing and distributing the guy would have ended up in prison, probably for 5+ years. IMHO, for reasons ...

I take great offence at your implication that I'm a racist, the nationality of the man is irrelevant, at least to me! I do not think I have ever implied that you are a racist, and I don't think you are. I merely asked if you have posted this thread if the guy was from somewhere from other countries...

I agree with Mah, fable and co. And, Galraen, did you bring this news up, if the man who was jailed was a Thai national? Or, even other Asian nationals, say, Vietnamese, Chinese, Philippino, or maybe an Iraqi? I suspect the answer is 'no'. I am interested to see how the British will react when the n...

I can see a problem already.
"they fight crime!", eh? I somehow believe it's the other way around, still that's only me, I suppose... :rolleyes:

One more question-- My Assassin is Level 8 with 70405 EXP. I am considering dual classing him over to a fighter. Is this even worth doing in BG1 with the XP caps so low? I have ToTSC installed... so it won't be terrible, but would I hit the end of the game before I ever get my assassination back? N...

Of course not. It should end, "let's-get-drunk-and-dance-around-fire- naked -woohoo!!" You are just a bit out of touch. A bit out of touch? Since when "naked" has become popular around here? I didn't know it is "the" thing these days. ....Oh, silly question. I think I lost my spam.

Oh, I just realised I still have my very old notebook with 486DX and monocrome (!!) monitor somewhere. If I connect an external monitor, I should be able to run it without too much trouble.
Then, I can play Ultima VII, Civilization II or the Little Big Adventure which I never finished.

Currently on my third run of the Romancing Saga: Minstrel's Song on PS2. It is better than I expected, though takes time and lots of fighting and thinking. More you play, more in need of thinking/planning in this game. Also, I often play Suikoden I&II and Valkyrie Profile on PSP. For PC, I only run ...

For your question regarding if Valygar, Mazzy and Anomen can do all the melee, then the answer is definitely yes. I would probably keep Mazzy for short bow expert, though, because there are so many good (and useful) short bows in the game, and I like using bows especially facing mages. Valygar can u...

For BG1, not really, simply because there's no trap or lock so difficult to find/disarm/unlock in the game. As for stealth, you will less likely fail to hide or to be found if you have the higher skill. It will be useful if you use lots of backstabbing. At the same time, you will find boots of steal...

Just send him to a house you will never enter again, then remove him from the party. He cannot leave the house by himself, so that he can't come to take Jaheira with him.
Alternatively, you can cast Fresh to Stone spell on him, then remove him from the party.
