    RPG's, Gaming, Movies, Graphic Design, etc. Mostly I enjoy spending time with my fiance and daughter. :) And killing npc's.
  1. While I'm pretty certain you haven't read much of the thread, I'd disagree. If you killed everyone (or nearly, leaving one shopkeeper alive you'd make the maximum amount of money possible. Afterall there are many houses you can't loot unless you kill it's occupants. And that trash loot starts to add up real fast. Y'know the more I think about it, the more I want to start killing every quest giver once I complete their quest, just to see how much I can make in the end. Up until now I just kill the odd one, as bearmode demands it.
  2. What if I'm roleplaying a Druid that loses control of his actions when in bearform? Or just a psychopath that only feels joy when he has blood on his face and gold in his hands? Roleplaying is what you put into it, especially in a game like this. It's not like the actions in my game affects the action in yours. The important thing is to have fun playing the game your way. My initial post was asking you all whether or not I'd be able to finish the game based on my psycho-murder saved game. Besides I didn't murder everyone. I mean, if I kill the vendors how will I spend my gold on shiny loo
  3. Well, I would've done, but you don't get the option if you send the Valtas girl first Aldwin seemed quite upset with himself that he couldn't resist eating her (First playthrough I saved them all - this time, my PC is a bit cruel ) I like your style! But I haven't come across this Valtas girl yet; I'm satisfied with the prisoners getting eaten. Regarding the Grieving Mother, I chose not to add her to my party this time around (mainly because I didn't want to click through the 1001 dialogue messages before I could add her). My party was full and I was feeling a bit lazy.
  4. I'm starting to get there too, Rhaedic's Hold (sp?) has been a major cash increase. The further I go, the more cash I'm getting. The reactions to my initial mass-murder defense seemed to indicate if you do the quests you'll be Oprah rich in no time. I still find the quests don't really provide much for cash, mainly I get my monies from looting stuff while DOING the quests. I have yet to do any bounties, I find I rush to my castle to defend it from bandits. I can't stand the idea of losing ANY gold to would be thieves (how DARE they!). Leaving the eight mercenaries I hired to take care of
  5. Well, Aldwin had to eat something. The interesting thing is that he remarked (after he ate all three people-bisquits) that he should have saved two of them to eat later but that he was just too hungry.
  6. While I haven't beaten the game yet, I've done the first 2 chapters several times now with different characters. I've never been great at Baldur's Gate, Planescape or this game for that matter. But I find having two tanks (main character + one made from the inn) to absorb damage makes the game a lot easier to get by. As you said, when your fighter goes down that is it. You could otherwise get a ranger from the inn and make a Bear pet tank that works in the same way. Of course gear out your fighter with a sword and board and take tanky talents when levelling. I found using the hodge pod
  7. Hi, I was going to post this in General Discussion but then I figured it would include a couple of spoilers. This is less of a story and more of a satisfying recollection of something that happened in Heritage Hill. In regards to Icantha/Aldwins conflict; I decided to lie to Icantha's food and sent them up to feed Aldwin instead, and for my efforts I was rewarded with +1 Might and 5% endurance bonus, or something to that affect (I'm a ways beyond this now). There was a negative reputation included of course but that's never really bothered me much. I mostly did it because I found Icantha's
  8. Oh, I'm reformed. A changed man now. I barely kill anyone who isn't hostile! Except for the people on the top floor of the first inn. For some reason I had to kill them again. Beyond that I think I've handled myself pretty well. I'm nearly into Act 3, but I have to say, the money everyone else mentioned from doing quests really isn't all that high. I've done a lot of quests, including the main quests, and I've made less money than I had on my previous murdering playthrough. I loot everything, use stealth mode as much as I can, etc. That being said I noticed I had in fact killed some npcs t
  9. It's definitely entertaining to me, but I see your point. I'm trying a new game with less murders.
  10. I haven't had anyone downstairs in an inn become hostile yet, I usually quick save right before I attack, just in case. But of each top floor I've wiped out, after I go downstairs no one is hostile. Granted in the noble houses I mentioned earlier, once I killed a servant upstairs, everyone became hostile downstairs too. You're probably right about the money, I haven't made it that far. I just play the game differently is all, and apparently the wrong way. I shall have to adjust.
  11. Well that's good to know, among everything else mentioned by the others. I wouldn't call it trivial though, as I usually gather around 1000g per inn top floor. That's not bad for 7 dead npcs, and looting the chests. I understand you can collect a lot of gold by doing quests and what have you. I was just curious if I was creating a game that I would not be able to complete. And someone else mentioned that may be just the case. I suppose I should start over, as I've killed a lot of people. I don't think I've come across too many of the gold backer npcs. I killed two important noble famil
  12. Hi, I apologize if this has been asked before but I have a tendency to kill random npcs and loot their corpses and/or houses to make money. Civilians I mean, not just monsters. I rob from the rich and give to myself, I tend to kill the rich too, and the poor. Whomever really, I don't really have a system. I do keep the shopkeepers alive so I can buy and sell stuff, but I clear out every top floor of every inn I've come across and the coin/items in each have been great! I did this in Divinity Original Sin too, with weird consequences. But I did finish that game with some weird bugs. I h
