Aye, an' even after I ditched her, I kept Jaheira's lock o' hair the entire game. I somehow grew attached to it, methinks.

As with the NPC's personal items. I just don't be throwin' 'em away, even when I finded a much better version. It be theirs after all. They don't be throwin' me ol' stuff away either. (I be the one with the honor :D )

Aye, an' if I not be takin' him to Spellhold, I always 'ave Yoshimo read a Cursed Scroll o' Petrification in the Copper Coronet whore-chambers, so he can watch some o'er lads gettin' busy, an' that fer the rest o' eternity. :D

Strange habits, eh? I think my strangest one would be swearing at Lilarcor whenever the blasted beggar opens it's... uh... does a sword have a mouth? Aside from that, I have no real odd habits in BGII, but in BGI me dwarf had a nasty habit of smashing small kids who dared to call him a 'loser'. I never did understand what those flamin' Flaming Fist pansies wanted with me... the bastards provoked me! I used to go on beserk rampages through the cities as well, usually Baldur's Gate itself, and knock every single sucker in the whole damn city unconscious with me knuckles. Teach them to look at ME queer-like :mad: .

i have several strange habits.

First I tend to kill the NPC's that I don't want. My favorites are Aerie (after I save her in front of uncle Quayle) and Keldorn (after I kill his wife in his side quest)

I also like to clean out the cowled wizards council building six and let's not forget the Hall of the Radiant Heart.

I also shout @ my NPC's and sometimes people that are talking to me in dialogues.

I forgot to mention that I clean out every temple in the temple district.

Playing as a ranger, I have the idea not to kill animals even when they attack me, so I always charm them and send them to some uninteresting spot of the map where they are going to stay out of my line of sight. (Except for the Trademeet quest)

Also, I have the habit of killing Aerie in different ways in every game. Once I made her a statue in CC, another time I let her cast magic missiles on herself.

I collect all the NPCs that I don't use and petrify them in arrangments inside my mage stronghold. Making a nice garden statue arrangement. As I stated in the old "I want to be EVIL!" post, from some guy who I can't remember. I will bump it as some pretty wierd stuff was in there.

I guess my habit would be charging into a rediculously deadly situation with my main character, like the time I tried a one on one with the Firkraag with my pally. :D

I actually live sometimes too!

I also can resist saying "Here lizard lizard..." anytime I'm in a room with a Dragon.

Speaking of strange habits...has anyone else tried to petrify everyone in all the towns before?

Or made arrows of sex change and shot everything they could see with them? (game crashed when I shot something that didnt have the opposite sex animation)

Or created a spell that turns everyone in the area (including party members) into a Demon Knight unless they save vs spells at -4? (I still have that spell if anyone wants it...)

Just wondering...Im sure there are more...
