    Hey all. So in my interest thread, we determined that I should play as a Druid, because that would lead to the most hilarious deaths (Don't even lie, that was your main, if not sole inspiration).

    Some ground rules:
    1. No reloading except if I die, or (only once) mess up so bad that it can't be fixed.
    2. No companions, at all, full stop.
    3. Quest order will be determined by you, the reader, along with a roll made on Unseen Servant that is weighed by the amount of votes for each option.
    4. Number 3 can be voided if you take way too long.
    5. I will keep track of the amount of deaths that occur.
    6. Insane mode, at least to start. I will allow myself to void this if anything proves far too difficult and I am left without options and/or my tactic relies solely on luck (such as getting three rogue crits).
    I've already made the character, and will post chargen in here at some point tonight or tomorrow.

    Quest Selection:
    Melicamp the Chicken
    Durlag's Tower Entrance/First WIS tome
    Ogre Mage with Belts
    CON tome/Safana's Treasure
    Nashkel
    Charisma tome/Gnoll Stronghold
    Brage(I think that's his name)/Ruined Caravan
    (Please feel free to suggest any, I'm drawing a blank right now and don't know all of the quests)

    Well, good luck. I've only soloed a totem druid in Tutu, so that was kind of overpowered with the spirit animal summonings.

    Which druid kit (if any) are you playing with?

    You should go shapeshifter to make things even harder on yourself - i've always wondered if it was feasible to solo one of those throughout the saga. (Though that's something i might attempt myself somewhere down the line.)

    If i might make a suggestion, i'd recommend bee lining over to Nashkel and grabbing the ankheg armor - you might also want to grab the ring of protection +1 on the crossroads and the ring of wizardry at the FAI for some starting cash. (you won't need the ring of wizardry anyway, and it sells for 9k gold.)

    Welcome all. I will be showing you the extent of a druid solo playthrough.
    [​IMG]
    It IS Enhanced Edition, so be forewarned.
    [​IMG]
    Our hero is a male.
    [​IMG]
    This was the best one I could find that works for a druid.
    [​IMG]
    He is a Half-Elf.
    [​IMG]
    And a nature loving druid.
    By the way, before I forget to mention it, I removed the level cap using BG2Tweaks.
    [​IMG]
    He seeks balance between good and evil, order and chaos, modernity and grand old tradition.
    [​IMG]
    Not bad for a first roll, but we can do better...
    [​IMG]
    Quite a bit better. With this, we can reach 20 WIS by the endgame, a potenet increase for a priest. The charisma will be raised as well to get better shop prices.
    [​IMG]
    I took Quarterstaves and Slings because I wanted ranged weaponry and Quarerstaves are some of the first enchanted weapons you find. Not to mention some of the best weapons I will be able to use are staves *cough*Staff of the Magi*cough*.
    [​IMG]
    And his name is Sir Cerors Plasius, abbreviated as SP for short.
    This will be played on Insane as far as I can take that, so we will be dying... a lot.

    Since you're already heading there, you might as well help Nashkel with its iron troubles :D

    So uh funny thing. The next update's all written and everything (no I haven't picked a quest yet, it's just getting out of Candlekeep and a couple of gibberlings) but the forum has a 30 image limit... Which I go over by a bit. Enough that it would ruin the Update and in fact the style I had planned for the LP if I brought it down. So we gotta wait. Good news is that this gives you more voting time.
    I'm taking that as a vote for Charisma Tome.

    I'm confused. How is a pure class druid going to use the Staff of the Magi?

    Well, to be fair, it's not like it's in the name or anything . . . :p
