  1. In way yes but i like to think that i have achieved something. Playing on easy just wouldn't be as fun because you would be able to steamroll everyone. So i was just wondering if you guys thought my case of the game cheating me could be used as an example of where that rule can be relaxed with clear conscience
  2. I don't have a clue. I asked somebody on another forum once whether the items in Baldur's Gate 2 ever despawn, and they said they despawn when you enter another chapter, unless they have been put into a container.
