Why but of course. I'm planning to look out to buy a new guitar so you know, the obvious way thing we could do is have them bump into each other or something. PM/VM mabe?

Baldur's Gate is one of those games that I've known about since I was a child but put of playing for so long. I ended up buying Enhanced Edition (and, on a related note, System Shock 2) during the Steam Sale, so hopefully I'll get around to playing it.

But getting stuck in the past with games is never a bad thing, at least from my PoV.

Oh, I wasn't talking about his mention of Baldur's Gate (Awesome game, by the way, though it takes a little bit of getting used to), I was referring to how he, Godot and dotcom are still technically in the first IC day, whereas everyone else is moving on to the second.

As far as Baldur's Gate goes, though, it's really good for the story but a little slower moving than some others. Takes a while to level up to level 2, so you're fairly fragile for a while. Save regularly. If you've got the Enhanced Edition, I'd say play the Black Pits first as a taster. The levelling's a lot faster. Plus, if you make a character you like and level him/her up in the Black Pits, you can export them and import them into BG. Though, due to complications, I think you'll lose a ring slot, but eh.
And a tip for character creation, make sure you get a good roll when you go for your stats. Just reroll until you get around 90 or so, or just under, for the total roll, then pump up most of the stats you need to 18.

There are other games on the same engine, like Icewind Dale, that are less story-intensive but have much faster levelling, better gear and a higher level cap. I mean, you can be powerful in Baldur's Gate, but you can be ridiculous in Icewind Dale.

Ooh, and I've heard of System Shock, too, but never played it. Maybe I should buy it... but yeah, sorry for the massive monologue. I like BG :p

If anybody would like to go into the dungeon/interact with Taka, he can be found outside the dungeon.

I was so close to buying a D&D pack that was on sale for an incredibly cheap price, which had Planescape, Baldur's Gate 1+2, Complete editions of both Neverwinter Nights games, Icewind Dale...and I stupidly passed it up XO

I will forever regret that decision. Just like when all the Ultimas were on sale.

/Sigh

I'm sorry if it seems like I'm spamming posts, but Taka is one of the best characters I've ever had the pleasure of writing for. I'm going to include a song in every other posts. Battles included! > : D

OK, sorry if I'm going to be leaving anyone behind in this (dotcom, I think, sowwy) but I'm going to post again in order to bring Turnip back up to the present. It's about time I un-past-ed myself.

Also, just a question about mobs - do they all have to be necessarily canon from SAO? Or can I just implement any general mobs I assume would exist? Wolves and skeletons have definitely been mentioned, I think someone said something about Kobolds. Don't know about including anything like Wights or Doppelgangers, perhaps. I think Wights are fairly generic, though I guess I'll go with something safer for now. Maybe a Battle Horror later on. Blimey I hated those things.

For the record, bloody hell my next post is going to be long.

Bwahahahaha! Oh Taka...Making friends everywhere he goes! I'll make another post soon, whether I can think of something to post or not. If somebody were to interact with Taka right outside the dungeon, I wouldn't object

Well, I don't know if desperately trying to avoid Taka is a form of interaction, but you've got that from Turnip :p

At any rate, Turnip is now successfully in the present! Yippee!

@Jegretis: Unless you can convince PinkSapphire and ShinyDiamond to open another spot for you, then probably not. At one point there was even a waiting list for people wanting to join this RP and considering how the spot left behind by the recently departed Nideous was instantly filled by ChiliDawgs I assume there still is. Sorry, man.

@True Epicness: Enemies came up as an issue earlier in the OOC, I believe. IIRC the verdict was that for floor one you can put in whatever enemies you want but for future floors the GMs will put up a monster list for you to reference.

I have a question that's essential to my post. How much experience does each wolf count for, or are we just estimating?

True Epicness- From on the second floor, I will start listing the monsters… so for now just Wolves, Spiders, Kobolds and Swines.

Heretostay- once you reached level 13, leveling up will start to get really difficult. You need atleast 10 wolves to gain an experience point. If you're under that level then let's say 5 experience points per monster, just don't over-power yourself (with this I mean: do not only fight monsters the whole day)

Excellent! Looks like fighting wolves is out of the picture. Now, i think i might send Taka into the dungeon.
EDIT: Question. What does the dungeon look like? It's been a while since I've seen it.

It starts with woods but once you got futher inside it you'll reach a cave with higher leveled monsters. I don't exactly have a picture, sorry xD

CAKE

Yeah, anyhow - how would I go about selling Turnip's useless loot? I take it shops buy and sell, and I take it that there are still equipment shops in Tolbana town.

Unless, of course, any of you guys are interested in the Destructor Hex Mace. Even though it's not in my latest post as of posting this, if anyone wants to interact with Turnip then go to Tolbana town. That's where he's headed.

Okaay, some other things to mention: I'm looking to get a throwing weapon for Turnip, and I remembered this awesome throwing axe from Baldur's Gate. The usual throwing axes were limited to ammunition, but this one was awesome because it returned to your hand when thrown :O In this case, I was going to have it +3 speed, returns to hand when thrown. I would call it <Boomeraxe>!
I was thinking Turnip could buy one for around 3000 col, does that sound about right? And is it all right in general?

And uh, just saying - PS and SD, if Lucina and Robin are going back to the dungeon, I'd appreciate it if they didn't go in one fell swoop, as it were. Any chance you guys could wait up for Turnip? He's just going to be downstairs in the same inn; perhaps he could overhear something about them finding the doors to the potential boss room?

What about the Boomeraxe and holding up for Turnip? Sorry, I know I ask like a million questions :p

And just for the record, I expect that Turnip would grudgingly accept partying with Taka.

I'm not gonna lie. Taka would probably enjoy it just for the sake of, as he would say, "A comrade bound by destiny!" Because he loves cheesy crap like that.

Okay, I also have another question - how much does food tend to cost? :p

And, yeah, just take a look at my new post and mention it if you have any qualms with it. I am really seriously impatient... Eh, at least I'm active, I guess.
