Poll: Do u Have Strange Habits In BG??

Postby TheDude » Sun Jun 17, 2001 8:48 am

i'm am really into Polls today :P :D

ok so do u have your own habits in the game??
- Like always place alot of extra marks on maps to show u where u put stuff or where a lot of enemys are ??
- Have your own storage box u always use ??
- Always Put a lot of time filling your Journal with your own info and stories??
- Always do quest in the same order ??

- or something other strange i didn't name ??
Like buying a whole lot of Potions of Invis. so u can backstab all Kobolds and Goblins u can find :D

My stranghe thing is i always place marks on the map:
Green for Npc i leave,
Bleu for Enemys,
Gray for Storage boxes
and Red for ViP (very importend Places,Persons) that the game doesn't point out (like the houses i have my storage boxes in :D

Yeah actually, I do the quests in the same order more often than not.

My strange thing must be, that I don't use either the map or journal for entering my own information - keep it all in the head :)

I seem to sleep with the whores in the Copper Coronet every night. :D Also, I use my stronghold as a storage container for items. I usually do all the quests in the same order, and always kill people like Keldorn, Mazzy, Aerie, Valygar, Minsc, Jaheira, and Cernd (because I'm evil). :D :D :D :D :D
I saved Suldanesellar from destruction, and all I got was this stupid amulet.

Well, in my first game that I played towards the end of 2000 - beginning of 2001 as a Priest of Helm, once I had the Helm temple as my stronghold I spent ages rearranging all the items i didnt immediately want to use in one of the temple rooms with several different shelves, tables etc. I put all the potions in one storage area, all the spell scrolls I didn't need to use at the time in another storage area, weapons in another, armour in another, etc etc. and after all this, i don't think I ever bothered or needed to return for any of them!

I also have a habit of suddenly going bezerk and slaying as many innocent people as I can just for the fun of it, but hey, I bet we all do that! I reload from before I started the massacres however and then continue in a positive way though (usually)!

P.S. I never wrote anything in the journal and only once placed a dot on the map to show where I left Minsc! :D

I tend to place strange markers in swedish on my map. Like "statyerna" on those statues in Trademeet.

All my characters are cleptomaniacs. They keep everything and store it. I need to have a yard sale.

I actually try to maintain balance with my true neutral ranger, I made him with shadowkeeper to fit my needs :o
I fight for the forest and for creatures at every turn. So if a party asks me to help them kill a pack of wyverns with them or for them, I charm the wyverns and have them eat them eat them. I did the job for Feirkag, not because I'm evil, but because the dragon deserves the land and not some preppie. I gave my stuff to the dragon at the end rather then kill him. I actually tried to roleplay a true nuetral character, you should try it it is fun.

I usually answer to my NPCs. Especially Keldorn, why I don't know though.

"Will you shut up!"

i have the smae thing with Korgan when he yells:
"Ha skulbreaker!!" i always have to repiet that a couple of times.

and when Hear'Dalis squits: "this sparrow is ready to fly"
i too end up saying things to him like: "oh bagger off" or just "oh shut up"

i think it is just a common thing people do when they stick so much time in playing the game :D :D :D

I think this is very common for anyone who has Aerie&Jaheira in the same party... Usually it goes like this: First, usually before a big fight when casting prot. spells on the chars A or J starts a romance talk... it goes on and on, and since i'm just too nice i don't like telling them to bugger off i answer nicely to them, and after one of them finally stops bitching how she hasn't seen kalimshae/i'm so sad for losing my wings the other one usually starts her talk right after that, and when that happens (like today) my first thought was in english: could someone hang me? :D :D :D :D :D

and if that isnt enough, your previously cast protection spells seem to run off when you are talking to them !!
BTW, jow does that exactly work? Time just goes on while you talk but nobody moves or something ??

I use some cupboards in the adventurers mart for storage

With my evil PC, right before I decended to hell, I decided to kill everyone in the game. I think I finished Athkatla, D'arnis keep, Trademeet, Temple Ruin, Umar Hills, Windspear Hills, and some of Suldenesslar before I left. Fun fun fun.
Spoiler Sig: Minsc is your evil twin brother and he kills your party in your sleep. You see, he was working for Bhaal the whole time (No he didn't die) Minsc and you have a duel to the death afterwards in which Boo bites for 20000000 points of damage!!!!!

I always keep all the quest-specific, useless items like the head of king Strohm and stuff like that. I also sell always to the same vendors, the ones I like. Like Roger the Fence. But the strangest habit is probably the one that I kill every ruffian I see when I'm in the docks district. They're just so god damn annoying and overconfident/arrogant! And then I always have these "personal" fights, like when I killed Edwin-the-SonOfAB***h in CC I sent only Minsc at him. And I always confront the leaders with my own char, clerics with Anomen, Anarg with Keldorn...then I also speak to the chars in my mind...like, "oh you REALLY think you're up to it, you f**k?", and I always think those things in english :D :D :D
Centuries ago in England........It was an era of chivalry and magic. The evil Prince John unleashed an iron fist of tyranny upon the people. They called out for a champion.........one man answered that call. His name, was Robin Hood. Fearless in his quest for justice Robin Hood challenged the power of the high warlords. While protecting the helpless and the poor. Willing to face death for what he believed, along with the beautiful, lady warrior, Jaheira, the mighty Minsc, and the wise Keldorn. Robin Hood forged a legend that lives on today in............
