Yes, consider EA to be a small slice of the game in buggy alpha/beta status. So don't buy into it unless you are OK with this--it doesn't do much for me. Also, I want Sven to clearly understand that the line "You must gather your party before venturing forth"
was likely the most absolutely hated and detested line in the BG games...;) Mods quickly developed to kill the audio on that infernal line--after all these years I still remember how much it annoyed me! Sven is getting a bit carried away with the "venturing forth" expression--it was not
a positive association for most BG players originally...;)
It is well known that I cannot err--and so, if you should happen across an error in anything I have written you can be absolutely sure that *I* did not write it!...;)
