Thanks, Calma. I have to say I'm very impressed with how well I'm getting on with NWN considering how awful I was the first time! I had no experience at role-playing, so I just charged about and had no money (because I didn't realise I should be investigating every crate, box, and chest I came across
) so I couldn't hire a henchman and therefore went sauntering off to the Docks district and very quickly got killed!
The second time I knew better.
This time the only thing that's giving me trouble is the severe lack of instructions on how to cast spells (such as the summon animal companion). Much searching on the internet has probably solved the problem, but one shouldn't have to do that.
I've got a few games from GOG in their sales that I haven't got into yet - I want to finish NWN first. But since I've heard such good things about Baldur's Gate, I might see if I can get them too. The one problem with playing on my desktop is that our computer chair isn't very comfortable! Still, it does stop me from playing too
Happy gaming, Calma.
