|09:22 pm - (Still) Hooked on BG2|
Yup, much of my spare time lately has been going on another replay of BG2 - but then, it's such fun to replay, as there are so many options in the game (play solo or with a party ? Who will be in the party ? Which classes will you use ? Which paths will you take ? Which mods will you install ? etc). The latest game I went with a "short" theme for my party, including a dwarf named "Imli", a halfling named "Erry", Jan Jansen (a gnome), and various others (with suitable LoTR icons to match, naturally). The bad sign is that I'm not yet finished this game, and already considering options for an evil party to run through next.
Or maybe I'll take a break and play some Morrowind or something.
Current Mood: geeky

What I'd like to know is .. how you manage to play an evil party and stay evil from start to finish? I know the few times I goofed up and got attacked by the mage enforcers in whichever town they abide.. my party got smacked down. Lots. And I assume that happens everywhere you go if you're evil?
Evil is cool, provided you're not constantly in fear for your life...

Yup, there are a couple of approaches for evil parties. One is to take it easy for a while (keep rep around 8-10) until you're level 12 or so (roleplaying wise, perfectly justifiable as checking out the new territory so you know what you're dealing with). By then, you should be able to deal with the Cowled Enforcers, and then you only have the groups of guards coming after you to worry about - but around that point, they're no longer a worry, they're an experience-and-money-gaining opportunity ...
Alternatively, if it's your Nth time through the game, blatant cheating works well (e.g. give yourself a bunch of extra xp or magic items at the start of the game).
