The filthy mortal's idea has merit. And from where I stand, I believe us to be....abreast of any situation that may arise.  *Caw, Caw, Caw!*  ;7
If you hit it and it bleeds, you can kill it. If you hit it and it doesn't bleed...You are obviously not hitting hard enough.

Greater Turning = death to every undead on screen
Blunt weapons or heavy weapons = dead skeletons

Attacking the giant at lvl 1 = suicide. Wait for LVL3 and have hold person/monster and Ray of Enfeeblement ready

Oh, once you find the rainbow rock (roughly in the center of hte map), expect an undead cleric to pop up with his guards. Consecrate is also a nice spell to have there.

@Trashman:
at least use spoiler tags ...

For what is water, which seeks to make all things level, which has no taste or colour of its own, but a liquid form of Nothing?" - Graham Swift, Waterland

Re: Let's Play: The Temple of Elemental Evil!
Not telling you anything you're not about to find out anyway.


Oh, and using normal turning with a cleric that doesn't have a decent level or charisma score is a pain the ass. the Undead won't be destroyed, they'll flee...and you have to hunt them down.

This is the exact reason to use spoiler tags, dude.

 
Re: Let's Play: The Temple of Elemental Evil!
Well, everyone's level 1 so our main tactic will be hiding behind Thog, Slab, and I while we smash up skeletons with heavy blunt objects.
17:37:02   Quanto: I want to have sexual intercourse with every space elf in existence
17:37:11   SpardaSon21: even the males?
17:37:22   Quanto: its not gay if its an elf

[21:51] <@Droid803> I now realize
[21:51] <@Droid803> this will be SLIIIIIGHTLY awkward
[21:51] <@Droid803> as this rich psychic girl will now be tsundere for a loli.
[21:51] <@Droid803> OH WELLL.

See what you're missing in #WoD and #Fsquest?

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

"You must die! Toss the Dwarves at him!"

(ah my old battlecry ... back from the day when I was playing Das Schwarze Auge with my friends from school)

I would rather have them fleeing then having them all continue attacking me at once, especially at these low levels.  At higher levels, I will also be happy to see particularly dangerous undead fleeing from me rather then killing me.

Greater Turning = death to every undead on screen
If I actually cared about doinig the best I possibly could, I would of taken Sun Domain, yes.

Blunt weapons or heavy weapons = dead skeletons
Ahead of you in that regard - the party already has a set of bludgeoning weapons.  But my experience is proper weapon type > heavy weapon, something that has been hammered into me from years of playing NWN.

Attacking the giant at lvl 1 = suicide. Wait for LVL3 and have hold person/monster and Ray of Enfeeblement ready
Lester can't take Ray of Enfeeblement, as it is one of his prohibited spell schools.  For Luna, I am considering Ray of Clumsiness instead, just for something different.

Besides, a TPK sounds like fun to me!  Was planning on asking the party if they wanted to fight the ogre, but since you went ahead and spoiled it, I guess I will just attack it with my level 1 party without asking :P

Oh, once you find the rainbow rock (roughly in the center of hte map), expect an undead cleric to pop up with his guards. Consecrate is also a nice spell to have there.
What's this, you say?  Another opportunity for a TPK from an event that was not a part of the vanilla game and would of caught me by surprise?  Fun times!  I'm all for TPK's.

Surprises like the ogre and undead cleric are exactly the type of thing that is a spoiler.  This is a western-style RPG, not a JRPG.  Moreover, it's a computer version of a pen and paper RPG, as opposed to just merely being a PC game based on a pen-and-paper game.

This is a great reason why I've put trashman on ignore. But then ya'll spoil it for me anyway by quoting him.

You're telling us completely unnecessary battle tactics (if they're so obvious) to try and keep us alive while also spoiling things that are supposed to be a surprise.

Not to mention that Alex has already demonstrated himself more than proficient at the game.  I highly doubt he needs your advice.

Well, someotimes the obvious need repeating as people overlook it.

And you already knew you were going to fight undead skeletons, so no surprise there.

Re: Let's Play: The Temple of Elemental Evil!
TrashMan, you did spoil the surprise of what was going to happen. Any way you word it or think about it, a spoiler tag would have been appropriate.
I'm not going to rag on you about it or be rude, but if you have knowledge about anything that is going to happen in the game, tag it if only to avoid this line of conversation in the future.
If you hit it and it bleeds, you can kill it. If you hit it and it doesn't bleed...You are obviously not hitting hard enough.
