OMG I'm a freaking idiot
« on: December 25, 2004, 05:30:02 PM »
I won't ask you to promise not to laugh.  The following is laughable.  And it is the season for being jolly, after all.

Back before I became hopelessly addicted to D2, I played all the Bioware 2nd Ed rules based games - BG, IWD, ToSC, HoW, BG2, IWD2, BG2:ToB...
Then when I heard about NWN I thought, well, sounds like more of the same, just with the 3rd Ed rules that I never played PnP with and don't really understand - so I gave it a miss.

Only now, believe it or not, do I realise that it is not another top-down 2D game and that it is built on the same engine that KotOR is built on.  Which I have been finding extremely cool.

So, now I have about 100000 hours of new games to play, as soon as Best Buy opens tomorrow morning.  Sigh.

Thrugg :lol:  have fun!  

I have been sucked into KOTOR and I keep being amazed at some of the similiarities between NWN and KOTOR.  They have their vast differences but the things I liked in NWN that they brought over are pretty cool!

Update: got the Platinum edition with all the expansions and have read the manual cover to cover which is an excellent way to speed up a 15 hour plane flight.

But KotOR won't let me install NWN yet until I have finished my 4th char.  Had to do both LS and DS with both a fighter type and a caster type to feel done.  I know, I know, I should probably do something a bit wierd like a neutral char or a (ugh) rogue type (imo so far Powers > Feats >>>>> Skills) but NWN is a-calling.

And I saved DS fighter for last  :twisted:

Get a move on to NWN.  It is a good time.  Much happiness will ensue as you start to build your characters.
