I heard the cloth map was pathetic. Thats atari for ya though. I have my cloth map from Baldur's Gate to this day and it's as strong and colorfull as ever.
Dont forget with the special edition theres the Blessed of Walkeen feet. It's a background feet I hear so that means you choose from it and several other 'free feets' and it doesn't impact your total number.
I'll try multiplayer soon. Right now though I'm workin on my arse kickin duel-wield flail using Barbarian. He's not all that great yet but with some lvls, monkey grip, frenzied berzerker, he'll be kickin the crap out of EVERYTHING :p
Tell ya the truth I've got about 3 different characters already between lvl 2-4 and lol, they are all super fun. The spell effects are just increadible too.
