Finally finished TOB!

Postby Luther » Tue Nov 13, 2001 3:17 pm

After an immense struggle between work, reality and free time, I finally finished SOA and TOB. I can't believe how long it took. I'm still trippin that most of you have played through 20 times and more.

Anyway, still the best RPG series I've ever played. I'm into story, so I thought the ending storylines were cool. Good closure to a long, long journey. Next time I'm gonna hook up some software to record some of the better battles. I'd like to edit out the pauses and watch the action take place like a movie.

Once I check to see if my girlfriend's still around, I'll start the next game! :p

Peace.

Oh yeah, I think this post makes me exalted. Right on!

Congrats Luth! [On Exalted AND Beating the Game ;p ]

I've currently got an elven fighter in ToSC, gonna make him a kensai in SoA and ToB. It'll be my third run through the entire series. ;]~
'We've dug our holes and hallowed caves, Put goblin foes in shallow graves, This day our work is just begun, In the mines were silver rivers run

Beneath The Stone the metal gleams, Torches shine on silver streams, Beyond the eyes of spying sun, In the mines where silver rivers run

The hammers chime on mithril pure, As dwarven mines in days of yore, A craftsman's work is never done, In the mines where silver rivers run

To Dwarven gods we sing our praise, Put another orc in a shallow grave, We know our work has just begun, In the land where silver rivers run'

Nice going. :D You might want to see if teambg has finished their TDD compatibility work for ToB, and if so, add that.

Congrats, @Luther. Are you going to start it again with TDD, try P:T, IWD, PoR, or Wizardry 8, next? :D

I might try TDD, but there's still a million things I haven't tried with the regular game! Is TDD just an expansion like Tales of the sword coast? Does it just add areas, characters, items, etc? In that case, might as well throw that in the mix.

I'll also look for the improved end fight, thanks for the fyi Quitch.

Whew! Too many games, too little time. Can you believe I'm still trying to finish games on my Dreamcast? Ugh! :D

20 times? gee
well am on 3rd game of soa/tob now and cant seem to motivate myself to play much.
had a great time with my evil fighter/thief and party and spent almost every non-working waking hour playing it last 3 weeks.
playing a sorceror now with neglected npc`s like keldorn and anomen and haerdallis which i didnt use in past and am already sorta bored and cant bear going through it all again.
maybe cause reallife starting to bear with new job soon or just hearing about upcoming games . feel like ps:t but cant find a copy in stores.
even rolled up a female undead-hunter and called her buffy but the thought of her kissing anomen made me sick.

Planescape: Torment is absolutely worth playing. It's at least as good as BG.

I played Planescape a while back and loved it. Totally great story and setting to use the BG engine with. A must play for all BG fans. Now I'm fired up to play it again!
