    So, after much debate about an idiot who was going to do a LP of a game that already has a LP going, I start with no promises of ever finishing:

    DUM, DUM, DUM DUM!

    ICEWIND DALE 2 LP!

    So, here's the rules.

    First, what makes my life easier:
    - Edited chars with an editor. Stats that matter are set to 18. Unedited it due to cries of overpoweredness

    Second, what fucks me:
    - The most useless classes in d&d! There's a fighter and a mage, because otherwise I would not leave the prologue, but the other characters will be a Barbarian, a Rogue and a Druid!
    - 150% monster damage, and only 100% experience! In IWD2, there's no bonus XP for higher difficulty. Normal difficulty.
    - There's something else, it will be pretty clear on the first update.

    I will save and reload to my hearts content, because fuck you guys, I already have real life to give me ulcers. The difficulty might be lowered in case there's a fight I can't win after some tries.

    And... If there's anything I'm forgetting, ask away.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    TABLE OF CONTENTS:

    We start!
    The errands, they are a constant in every RPG
    We reach the end of the Targos section! Hurray!
    Orc fuckery
    Orckery fuck
    Finally, a non orc-centric update.
    Animal husbandry.
    In the valley of the shadow of reloading.
    In moist and dark places. But not the good ones.
    Underground cows and bats.
    Reaching the fortress, finally!
    Killing everything inside the fortress, finally!
    Crashing and burning. Mostly crashing. Not much of burning
    On half-dragons!
    Ice economics.
    Watch out, this neighbourhood is full of negromancers
    This is Targos all over again!
    Errand Boy, part deux. Shaken, not stirred.
    The smell of dragons
    The horror, the horror...
    (S)He broke free.
    The Underdark!

    Index on hold until the search comes back.

    Don't want to discourage You, but we already have an IWD LP going on here - and it's pretty good, so You're up for a challenge.

    That said, You might want to consider playing in Heart of Fury mode (instead of nightmare, for example) - killing the first enemies will be a pain, but increeased XP gain will pay off. I'm not sure if nightmare in IWD also provides bonus XP.

    As for the party, if You go with two party members, I suggest a fighter/thief (archer tank build) and a cleric/mage (slingshot ftw). If there are three chars, Your class suggestion is a good idea, I think (although, maybe a pure/specialist mage would be better than a multi-classed one in the long run).

    I vote 3, btw. IWD will rape Your ass anyway.

    If you do an IWD playthru do it on HoF if you like to cheese. Insane or however the difficulty called with double damage ain't so hard coz you also get double XP, so your party members will seriously outlevel everything, and once you acquire haste you will roflmow thru everything.
    edit: full mage is a waste i think (unless HoF). High level mage spells are pretty lack lusters.

    Oh shit, we already have an IWD LP?

    Crap. I don't like the idea of HoW very much. The game seems boring in that mode, because everything take ages to kill.

    Yes. I even mentioned it as one of my inspirations too. LINK.

    EDIT:

    Yeah, how about that?

    Well, let me check first if there isn't one already...

    EDIT: Well, fuck me, there's no Icewind Dale 2 LP being updated. Right now I have life to deal with, but later I will either start an Icewind Dale 2 LP, or some other game.

    If you start a IWD2 LP, please do it with a codex crew.

    We start!

    Alright, so let's start this:

    ICEWIND DALE 2


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] - They all look so... BLEEERGH (pukes on the boat)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] - NO, BLOODY NO! IF I NEVER SEE A BOAT AGAIN IT WILL BE TO SOON!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] - He's the one with the gold, I hope.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] - OF COURSE I WAS A SAINT, I WAS TOO BUSY PUKING MY GUTS OUT.

    [​IMG] - Fucker.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] - What the hell with this many people talking?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] - I meant to say *I* have come from Luskan, since there's only me here.

    [​IMG] - AND DON'T EVEN START TO BITCH ABOUT HELP FROM LUSKAN.

    (two screenshots less of they bitching about help from Luskan)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] - It helps to fight when you still have non-pierced internal organs.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] - On second thought, it was BLOODY OBVIOUS GOBLIN ATTACK.

    [​IMG] - I don't want to know, I assume you will want something to heal it, and bring it later for you.

    [​IMG] - Goodbye

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] - Bloody shitty weapon.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] - I could make a better armor braiding the hairs of my arse and gluing them with spit.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] - Oh, a goblin.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] - Oh, a dead goblin.

    [​IMG] - I don't know what is the fuss. Those green fuckers could be killed by a child.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] - *I* am an advent... Oh, forget it.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] - Not that's impressive or nothing. I mean, you could fart at their general direction and they would die.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] - Less dialog, I like him already

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] - A couple more dead pests.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] - Let's see what we can find there.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] - Nothing much, but better than nothing.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] - A tavern. Good place to look for help. I imagine that when these goblins stop the attack something dangerous might appear

    [​IMG] - Hey, guys, the city is under "attack" by goblins. After our grandmothers drive them out, I suspect something dangerous might attack us for real. I am here to help, and I want to know who is with me?

    - Silence -

    [​IMG] - Bloody drunks...

    [​IMG] - Hey, good morning my good gentleman. I think I am up to the task at hand.

    [​IMG] - Oh, a Barbarian, great, your raging ability will help us greatly.

    [​IMG] - Well, while I do have many great combat skills, I don't rage.

    [​IMG] - What, how can you be a bloody barbarian and don't rage?

    [​IMG] - Well, I find no reason to do so. My opponents simply view the world differently than I do. Why am going to rage at someone for essentially being someone? If anything, I would prefer to debate our different views. There was one time, when I met this fascinating swamp hag that hoarded baby meat...

    [​IMG] - Alright, alright, I don't need to hear anything, you are in.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] - Anyone else?

    [​IMG] - Me

    [​IMG] - You are a wizard, I assume.

    [​IMG] - You assume correctly. I will add my skills to our cause.

    [​IMG] - But uh... Right now, I can't cast any spells.

    [​IMG] - You aren't rested?

    [​IMG] - Not exactly. My powers will return in a few days, rest assured.

    [​IMG] - Well, I'm sorry to hear that, but we can't have a wizard at our backs whose powers might fail

    [​IMG] - My powers are fine, they won't fail

    [​IMG] - But...

    [​IMG] - Look, it's a seasonal thing, it's fine.

    [​IMG] - And how can you know when they will be available or not?

    [​IMG] - I KNOW WHEN!

    [​IMG] - That's hardly convincing at all, and in the battlefield...

    [​IMG] - LOOK, I JUST CAN'T CAST SPELLS ON MY PERIOD, ALL RIGHT?

    - Whole bar looks -

    [​IMG] - Ahem...

    [​IMG] - Al... Alright, lass, I'm sorry I asked.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] - Mr Dwarfington, I want to contribute too.

    [​IMG] - Mort, good friend! Never thought I would see you around these parts!

    [​IMG] - Barbaric! Old chap! What a coincidence

    [​IMG] - You are friends, I assume.

    [​IMG] - Yes, yes, I was at his son coming of age. Of course we are!

    [​IMG] - Well, he's in, then. It's good for morale when the group is already know to each other.

    - Sir Dwarfington looks at Mortimer -

    [​IMG] - So, we have a barbarian who don't rage, a wizard that can't cast. I suppose you don't steal?

    [​IMG] - No, I steal alright.

    [​IMG] - And what is you horrible disadvantage?

    [​IMG] - Other than being a rogue in d&d3 ?

    [​IMG] - Point taken.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] - Now, we need some healer. A cleric. Even a paladin might do.

    [​IMG] - A druid maybe?

    [​IMG] - Well, not at the top of my list in usefulness, but...

    [​IMG] - Oh, I'm sorry then...

    [​IMG] - What? Oh, no lass, we take all the help we can get. A druid it is.

    [​IMG] - Okay. I can heal alright, but I'm not very good at dealing with animals.

    [​IMG] - In fact, they attack me on sight.

    [​IMG] - Once I had this crow try to peck my eyes out, the damned thing followed me for a week. I had to sleep with leather armor over my face...

    [​IMG] - ... Alright.

    [​IMG]

    - And Sir Dwarfington -

    [​IMG]

    Next update, we do menial tasks for the village... Unless you want me to skip that part.

    Regarding the update, I will enforce what the characters said:

    - The wizard won't cast spells 5 days a month, since we start at day 0, she will be able to cast spells at day 5, then unable again in day 30 through 34, etc.

    - The barbarian will not rage

    - The druid will not use the animal companion, nor summon any animals.

    That's the third "What will fuck me" of the first post.

    And fuck me it will...

    The next update should be sometime this saturday.

    I like the characterization, but Your party seems a bit overpowered with all the 18s and 16s. I played IWD2 only once and a long time ago, but I don't remember it being very hard. Maybe I'm wrong.

    These self-induced handicaps are an interesting concept. Not sure if they'll do well in the field - we'll see, I guess.

    It seems we'll have to wait for Merk's LP to get that.

    Well, I played it some time ago, and though it was not especially brutal, it had some tough fights. And I played with a serious party, with two fighters, a cleric, two mages and a sixth class that I don't remember.

    Considering that a druid is a crappy version of a cleric, a barbarian is basically a crippled fighter, and a rogue is more or less 1/2 of a fighter...

    Also, the difficult setting messes with the monsters saving throws too, so putting everybody to sleep/charming/paralyzing won't be so effective.

    But looking at it, yeah, I may have overdone it. If the audience asks, I will tone it down a bit, or increase the difficulty to 200% monster damage (and increased saving throws).

    EDIT: I might have to use .jpg instead of .png. It seems I have already 5% of the storage space in photobucket, and 1% of the monthly bandwidth, with nobody in the audience. Anybody has any complaints/suggestions, feel free to post.

    EDIT2: Anybody knows how to make a text with a link embedded? I put the first update on the first post, but I don't know how to make it properly.

    I really disliked IWD, and so never felt like giving its sequel a chance, but I'd be interested in seeing what I missed. Wasn't it the first CRPG to use 3e rules ? And are there as many traps as in IWD 1 ?

    The errands, they are a constant in every RPG

    [​IMG]

    So, the party buys some equipment, and get's out of the tavern to find some goblins

    [​IMG]

    Just to see equipment throw on the ground.

    :rage:

    [​IMG]

    We find some goblins.

    [​IMG] - It's a wonder those things can do any damage at all. Look, I can just stand here while he "beats" me, and I'm just fine. Maybe they should be made pets or something.

    [​IMG] - Somebody would need to bath them first. They smell a peculiar mixture of sweat, farts, and sewage, with a unexpected hint of pine.

    [​IMG] - What do you think they eat?

    [​IMG] - Well, it must be meat of course, look at their teeth.

    - Barbaric! holds one of the goblins heads and pulls it's mouth open -

    [​IMG] - Yeah, but this one is hitting you for five minutes straight, and it has not been able to even scratch you.

    [​IMG] - Yes, it's a wonder.

    The party goes around the town, slaughtering the goblinoids

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    While finding more equipment thrown away

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    The party enters the warehouse

    [​IMG] - I would rather enter the whorehouse.

    [​IMG] - Indeed.

    [​IMG]

    We encounter some goblins

    [​IMG]

    And proceed to the obvious conclusion

    [​IMG]

    And to loot the place, finding nothing of useful

    [​IMG]

    But the day is not yet lost, because we find a DEAD CAT!

    [​IMG]

    We enter the basement, to find this series of caverns.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I really don't think these are any fun for you guys to watch. It is not fun for me to do. Just goblins.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] - I think I know how these goblins eat

    [​IMG] - How?

    [​IMG] - They keep going at you until you are too fatigued to kill them, and when you drop of exhaustion, they eat you.

    [​IMG] - That's a very real possibility

    [​IMG]

    We process* a goblin sapper
    *process = find, kill, loot

    [​IMG]

    And find this. It will be useful, especially while Wizerella can't cast.

    [​IMG]

    Stupid goblins can't even explode things properly

    [​IMG]

    Our first "not stupidly easy" fight. But still ridiculously easy.

    [​IMG]

    I try to position Mortimer to take advantage of his sneak attack. I don't think he does the deed this fight, but regardless, the battle ends quickly

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Stupid non-identified scroll

    [​IMG] - Wizerella, can you, ahem, identify this scroll?

    [​IMG] - ... No

    [​IMG]

    Having finished our business down there, we return...

    [​IMG]

    And report our findings. The guy tell us nothing important, just to look for Ulbrec

    [​IMG]

    We decide to enter this place. It's a pain in the arse to go around killing goblins.

    [​IMG]

    To sum it up, this guys, by the means of around 57 to 76 screens of dialog, tells us to loot the place, because it's an emergency. And while we loot the place, guess what happens? An ogre enters the place, followed by a few orc shamans and orc warriors.

    [​IMG]

    Not really. Just some goblins.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] - Where's Mortimer? -Screams- MORTIMER, WHERE ARE YOU?

    [​IMG] - -Screams back- JUST A SECOND, LOOTING THE PLACE.

    [​IMG] - Bloody thief -Screams to Mortimer- JUST DON'T GET BITTEN IN THE LEGS, WE DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO PUT YOU TO SLEEP

    [​IMG] - -Imitates horse-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] - These bloody goblins have nothing on their pockets. We look down, and their pockets are bulging, but there's only lint, rocks and 1 or 2 coins. The effort to loot their corpses is bigger than the trouble to kill them!

    [​IMG] - Yes, I'm not so young anymore, crouching is killing my knees. Much more so than those goblin blows.

    And indeed, the extra two clicks to collect the gold are not worth the effect in game.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    We loot the place, and find these Iron Rations, that restore 3 hp, and Lamp Oil

    [​IMG]

    Here we see that you can sneak attack a barrel. Those things can detect you, so you can sneak past them?
    What about crates? Can they look at you too?
    BEWARE, a barrel might be watching you masturbate!

    [​IMG]

    The party leaves the lower town, or whatever that's called, and goes to the upper side.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] - -Scooby-Doo style - GH-GH-GH-GHOOOOST!!
    [​IMG] - -Scooby-Doo style - GH-GH-GH-GHOOOOST!!
    [​IMG] - -Scooby-Doo style - GH-GH-GH-GHOOOOST!!
    [​IMG] - -Scooby-Doo style - GH-GH-GH-GHOOOOST!!
    [​IMG] - -Scooby-Doo style - GH-GH-GH-GHOOOOST!!


    The party leaves the building.

    Whole party - LET'S NAIL THIS DOOR SHUT

    Whole party - AGREED!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] - Let's never talk about that incident again. Especially if it's dark.

    [​IMG] - What incident?

    [​IMG] - Exactly

    [​IMG]

    We enter the Inn and talk to the bartender

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] - Jesus, that indicated a lot of pain in his underside.

    [​IMG]

    Loot ...

    [​IMG]

    The place...

    [​IMG]

    And because I deleted the screenshots (trust me, there was NOTHING to be seen in them), we teleport to Ulrec's place

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    It seems we did not deal with all the goblins yet.

    Groans

    We leave...

    [​IMG]

    And enter this house...

    [​IMG]

    To talk to this guy

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    And the fight starts

    [​IMG]

    How, nice, a sleep spell that doesn't allow saving!

    [​IMG]

    And this is the result. First reload

    [​IMG]

    This time, I use the lamp oil.

    [​IMG]

    And the forgot it's name that also explodes. And...

    [​IMG]

    Incline?

    [​IMG]

    Not really. The oils kill most of the goblins, but the sleep spell goes off anyway.

    [​IMG]

    And Barbaric is killed by a level 1 spell doing 18 damage. 1 shotted by a level 1 spell. A barbarian with 18 of con.
    Who said my party was overpowered?
    Second reload.

    [​IMG]

    This time, knowing the sleep will go off anyway, I try to scatter the party.

    [​IMG]

    Looks good, all minus one of the goblins are dead, only two of my guys are sleeping.
    But you guys will have to trust me on this one, because I did not SS it, but someone suffers a gruesome death, and I had to reload. Third time.

    [​IMG]

    The start of the fight.

    [​IMG]

    Party scattered

    [​IMG]

    And the bastard is down! Hurray!

    [​IMG] - Finally that bugger went down! Let's loot the place.
    [​IMG] - Hmm, a locked container. Where's Mortimer?
    [​IMG] - BLOODY HELL, the bugger is still asleep!

    [​IMG]

    Sir Dwarfington kicks Mortimer

    [​IMG] - Wake up you bugger, there are locks to be picked!

    [​IMG] - Uh? What? Oh, calm down man, I was resting the eyes a bit

    [​IMG] - Resting!? Fuck rest, do you want to stay in this prologue ultill the end of time? MOVE!

    [​IMG] - Jesus, slavery is over, didn't you hear?

    [​IMG] - I'm not even black, for christ sakes...

    [​IMG]

    The party rests, and leaves the building, it's night time

    [​IMG]

    We find Oswald Fiddlebender, and we skip his long and pointless chatter. Really, nobody goes to the point in this game.

    [​IMG]

    We take a look at his shop

    [​IMG] - What?! 87 gold pieces for a healing potion? This is highway robbery!

    [​IMG] - And I might add, if there's something I know about, it's highway robbery!

    [​IMG] - Let's go, I wouldn't buy a potion here, even if my mother, had I not sold her, needed it to cure cancer or something

    [​IMG] - You sold your mother?

    [​IMG] - Yes.

    [​IMG] - But... How? Who would buy a mother?

    [​IMG] - C'mon, there are plenty of orphans in the world, anyone of them would give a lot to have a mother.

    [​IMG] - Yes, but... You can't become someone's son just because you bought a mother. This is nonsense!

    [​IMG] - And orphans hardly have any money at all, I doubt you would sell anything cheap, much less your mother!

    [​IMG] - Do you really want to know about it?

    [​IMG] - ... I don't.

    [​IMG]

    I forgot to take a look at Phen's loot. We find this, and equip it in Wizerella. Also, we finish the slaughtering of goblins and report to Ulric.

    This second update turned out huge. And I did cut back on the number of screens. Several dialogs were shortened, and several battle scenes too.

    And I haven't left the start of the game. Well, I hope that as dialogue diminishes, the thing get's a bit more compact.

    Yes, it uses third edition rules. I don't think there are many traps though. There are some...

    Are you using any mods? Not there are very many mods for IWD2 anyway.

    Just G3 Icewind Dale 2 Tweak Pack

    Mostly to allow more than 40 stack of arrows, make some containers bottomless.

    Also, to make the backstab damage be a multiplier instead of extra dice, but I'm not sure if that's working.

    Can be found here:

    More infinity engine shit? Jesus christ. I don't see how playing this shit is less shameful than playing world of warcraft

    Also chars are overpowered, don't know what you're thinking, this game isn't hard you equip sword and kill monster

    Doing everything I can to crash this, of course

    :(

    This makes me a sad panda.

    My first choice was IWD1, to see how much cheese I could get, with only three chars, but there's already an IWD1 LP

    My second choice was W40k Chaos Gate, but I can only run it on a win98 Virtual Machine, and I don't have any screenshot thing that works on win98

    My third choice was JA2 1.13, but Overweight Manatee already has one LP on-going (on hold at the moment, but from the thread, I understood he was going to start again).

    My fourth choice was Icewind Dale 2.

    Like I said, the chars are OP, but I'm playing on 150% damage, with shitty classes. However, if more people think I should, I will increase the difficulty and/or tone down the chars.
