Before BG 1, I hadn't played any "modern" RPGs, my RPG experience ending at Pool of Darkness. I like questing, those kind of clear cut quests didn't happen much when I played RPGs as a kid. I also enjoy the combat (it took me a little while to get used to).
I am a Fighter/Mage. I regret that decision a little because I am neither a good fighter nor a good mage, but I am kind of getting used to it. I seem to be drawn to evil characters (I guess they are more powerful?) but I like playing as a good guy.
My team is:
Fighter/Cleric guy whose name starts with an A
Asian Thief guy
Basically, Korgan and the Fighter/Cleric are my tanks.
Me and Edwin sit back and cast spells, when I feel like it, I run in with my two single handed weapons.
Thief and Viconia do range damage, Viconia might throw out a heal or a spell every now and then.
I am in the sewers (Chapter 2). This morning before work I won a fairly big battle with a bunch of mercenaries who wanted 1000 gold from me. It took me several goes to do it (ended up spamming fireball). When I was done, I was looting corpses and the game crashed before I could save. Now I must try again. Sigh.
The game seems to be way more stable (playing on crossover) than BG 1, which is nice.
Anyone else playing it right now?
