    Stopped reading right there.
    Didn't play through BG or BG2, "loved" OS2 but got burned out in act 2...

    I think you're conflating "DM ensuring that the party doesn't die on the first direwolf encounter" with "DM making party invincible against Archlich"

    Judging by some reactions, apparently this leak hasn't reached the Codex yet, so here it goes.

    One of the Origin Characters, labelled as "The kid", is apparently the child of Abdel Adrian, and also a Bhaalspawn, of course.

    Whether this is s literal child or a young adult isn't known.

    Not really, since it's just CHARNAME with a canon race, name, gender, and alignment. That's it.

    Abdel Adrian is canon, though. He just wasn't CHARNAME, afaik.

    As it stands right now it's the opposite. Abdel Adrian was CHARNAME, not that novel abomination.

    Well, since the Viconia romance is non-canon, seeing as how she's alive, Aerie is the only option for a mother.

    Abdel eating Bodhi's breast is canon and you must deal with it.

    inb4 Baldur's Gate 3 sets a new canon: the bhaalspawn was a female and Jan Jansen is the father.

    rusty_shackleford Since I can't find shit about it, care to share what system did you use exactly to "hack" the six-men party into your saves?
    I'd like to give it a go with a new game. Let's call it a test run.
    There was something on Nexus but I can't track it anymore for some reason.


    It helps that my government just decided that my gym has to spend another full month completely closed, so I'll have loads of spare time until the end of November.

    :hmmm:

    Those are poor attempts at trolling. I've read that damned thing.

    I edited the savefile to increase the party size but the tool warns that editing the savefile is probably broken.
    The 'correct' way would probably be to edit the script files themselves and override them but I can't be assed to mod an early access game.
    can't remember if I've linked this already or not, but the tool to unpack all the various larian files is here:
    https://github.com/Norbyte/lslib

    If anyone wants a quick rundown on how to mod the game just ask and I'll write something out. It technically doesn't support loadable mods yet like DOS1/2 does.

    But seriously - if this is true, the whole "all Bhaalspawn are dead" line goes out the window. It would also explain why it's just "the kid" - we'll be naming him/her.

    I've predicted since Day 1 of the announcement that:
    - The Minsc comics will be a prequel.
    - Minsc will be a companion.
    - Mind Flayers are a red herring.
    - The Dead Three will be the main villain.
    - Bhaalspawn will be present.

    Speaking of which, it's rather annoying to have a story featuring illithids and no psion class. The anti-psion racism needs to end.

    Never going to happen. Too confusing for the mainstream, too science fiction.

    Remember what happened when Armageddon's Blade wanted to introduce a science fiction faction? They got flooded with death threats.

    Mindflayers are psionic though.
