- Back of NWN2: Experience one of the most popular role-playing adventures of our time, a journey that has thrilled millions.
- Me: I have met literally one other person who has played this series.
- Me: No one else has even heard of it.
- Me: Not to sound like a hipster, box, but no one knows you exist.

What I learned last night:
I gave Darian Point Blank Shot as a feat. Fucking use it. It’s better than his darksteel warmace OR that fancy-schmancy longsword with the sonic damage.
Arrows run out fast when you’re primarily an archer. Like, crazy-fast. Faster than I thought possible. Buy lots of them, more than you think you could ever possibly need. And then watch as they run out over the span of a few quests.
Casavir and Castiel are connected. They have to be. Black hair, blue eyes, stern faces and solemn dispositions, warriors of their god, strong tendencies towards self-sacrifice…
Orcs on their own are no problem, but when they swarm, jesus fucking christ.
Grobnar Gnomehands is somehow a fucking god among gnomes. Either that, or bards just kick ass.
Casavir is also a drama queen. Whenever he falls, he moans “I’ve failed you!” Calm the fuck down, dude, you haven’t failed me, you’ll be back on your feet once I’ve mopped up the last of these bastards.
Apparently, certain types of (FUCKING HUMONGOUS) white wolves can breathe frost/ice.
Also they’re really nice to you if you’re a ranger (or, presumably, a druid. Or have Elanee with you, I’m guessing), and can (sometimes) be convinced to help you wipe out the orcs that have kept them prisoner.
Seriously dude. Fucking swarms of orcs. Like gtfo no. I don’t want to deal with all you bastards shooting and swinging swords and axes at me. I don’t care if I’m invading your lair and trying to kill the leader of your clan (and also all the other fucking clans in the area). Gtfo and leave me alone.
But dude. Grobnar. Him and that little fucking shortbow of his have got to be blessed by the fucking gods or something. I mean, according to other people I’ve heard talk about him, he’s got sucky stats and skills, and yet he has repeatedly been the party member to pull my ass out of the fire by being the last to survive, and clearing out the last of the baddies all by his lonesome.
Either I just completely and utterly suck so Grobnar seems awesome by comparison, or Tymora really loves him.
(He doesn’t even worship Tymora though, he worships… some gnomish god whose name I’ve forgotten. It’s got ‘Gold’ in it though, I think…)
