The GWJ CRPG Club - Game 7: Baldur's Gate (In Progress)

Pages

Played ... quite a lot over the weekend. Did some questing and exploring around Baldur’s Gate, did some damage to the Iron Throne then ended up back at Candlekeep chatting to “Koveras” - why does that name seem familiar

I love how this supposedly unmatched schemer and evil mastermind basically stole the naming conventions for his alias from Castlevania games. I bet his vault password is 12345.

12345? That's amazing. I have the same combination on my luggage.

I had the quick collect box, but it seems lost now.. anyone knows how to get it back.. I probably toggled something when I bumped my whisky on the keyboard

*nope i had it totally wrong

It's the little button bottom left, next to the "dialogue" button i think?

Should be a red button to the left of that bottom command bar.

Getting to the Friendly Arm in for the first time is still a great moment. While the Nashkel mines themselves are mostly just annoying, clearing them out is still a great feeling.
The outdoor areas still feel wonderful and charming, though the walking speed got to me a bit this time. Prior to the EE I usually kicked up the fps to 45 with the config and that sped things up nicely. I didn't see any way of doing that in the EE.

And there is still that part of me thinking, 'maybe this time I'll play a Paladin'. There's not been a point where I have felt like I couldn't go back to this one.

Great write-up, buddy! There's something special about BG1. It honestly always feels like you're setting off on a grand adventure when you're playing it.

And... done. Sarevok is down. That final battle was ridiculous, I had to bend the rules in all sorts of directions to get through it. A cloudkill scroll finally broke the stranglehold, and I was able to pick off the minions individually then go outside and rest before taking on Sarevok.

As always I finished the game with a massive pile of unused gold, scrolls, wands..
