    Oh my, that fellow does indeed seem clueless. I don't know about you, fellow degenerates, but I could recite you the perfect cookie-cutter party build in a blink of an eye after being violently woken in the middle of a night. And I haven't touched an IE game in 8 years.

    IWD2 I think benefited from being released after NWN - NWN taught you how to generate a single 3E character, making the creation of a full party in IWD2 a bit less overwhelming.

    The hardest part of IWD 2 party creation is remembering what skills are useful in various parts of the game.

    Ironic, considering half the Codex is butthurt because of my righteous rants and then go on to make misinformed attacks made on me due to the butthurt.

    Free entertainment :smug:

    I love character creation, and this is massively entertaining. In a train-wreck sort of way. I wish him all the best. :salute:

    Well, it's not like it's that difficult of a game. And he pussied out and plays on normal. Though if it takes this long to do the characters he probably won't go past the first chapter in a day.

    Whoa, he's still generating the party? :lol:

    I hope it's because he's trying to get perfect scores or something

    Actualy it's not entertaining...... it's like he don't know what he is doing.It's like he never played an infinity engine game before.
    In iwd i'd create my party in 5 mins max. It's baldurs gate 1 with the best party creation, because to get some stats you would have to reroll over and over. To get 18/00 on warrior i would spend an hour just clicking and rerolling, that is dedication, not mentioning that on every reroll you would also get random number of points so you coulnd't min-max.

    Later on they dumbed down char creation and you would have set number of points from the start and no going above 18.


    It's painfull to watch him for a proper char creator.

    I'm guessing you are referring to me? I'm just not a min/maxer.

    What do they need to hire voice actors for when Adam can clearly handle any role?

    This is a guy who is the producer on PE, right? It's amazing, in a tragicomic way that you are rolling on the floor in ecstasy upon a mere recognition of your name elsewhere. Meanwhile, some guy who has absolutely no idea about IE games and is struggling to even start one, is filling the shoes of the producer on PE.

    Yeah, this will turn out good.

    PE will only have you generate a single character. Playing BG or P:T would have been more indicative.
