I have a tendency to play half orc characters. Now, the whole Gorion thing got me thinking ... if Player1's father was Bhall, then his mother must have been an Orc.  Interestingly, even in BG1, half orc characters were allowed.  However, the BG1 plot states (at various times) that player 1's mother was Gorions sweetie (and possibly fiance). 

 

So, does this mean our old buddy Gorion was turned on by Orcs? :whistling:

Or she was a half-orc herself, which wouldn't be that strange, only a little unusual maybe.

No, you are talking about the BG1EE, the Tales of the Swordcoast variant doesn't have half orcs as playable race.

Secondly, the gods avatar can be of any race, so it wouldn't be out of question for it to be an orc, or a dragon currently being orc.

OK, desert dweller, welcome to the sanity, you are free to search for the limit, it's out there, we drew it in the sand. Ouh, actually it was still snow then.. but anyways.

Hmmm, well, if Player1's mother was a half orc, wouldn't s/he be a quarter orc? :shifty:

 

And to the Imp, no I don't have (and have never had) the EE versions of the games.  Strictly vanilla, tho BG1 does allow half orc characters :)

 

Personally, I prefer the pervy angle to old Gorion.  But, lets face it: the folks at Bioware didn't think things through very well on anything else either! :whistling:

To be able to pick the Half-Orc race, you neeed to be using the BG2 engine, so you are NOT playing the vanilla, so quit lying to yourself... aka you are either playing the BG1Tutu/EasyTutu OR BGT/BGT-weidu.

And strictly from a biological point of view, half-breeds cannot reproduce, that's the definition of race, so it wouldn't be a quarter anything.

Oh, come on, I'm sure it was strictly platonic.  :P Besides, it is not the worst thing that can happen in Faerun. Anybody recalls that planned mod about that handsome cleric of Sune falling in love with beautiful kobold maiden?  :lol: Even that pales in comparison with the planned Jaheira -Wilson romance.  <_< Not even funny in the " What the hell is wrong with you" kind of way. Just sad.  :wacko:

Oh yeah, this is just crown jewel from "Mazzy romance" many gems. If anybody dreamed about threesome with Jan Jansen- go for it!  :lol: To quote Mazzy before threesome with Viconia: " my light will guide us through".  :P

Just one question ( convenient reason for my 667 post, I'm really not comfortable with previous number) who is Angua?

Oh dear. I already knew that this Mazzy and a lot of other things mod hints on Imoen having a thing for gnomes and thus having slept around in Gullykin during BG1 *and* Mazzy insisting on a threesome with Imoen if romancing the PC, but I wasn't aware this "topic" spreads to other NPCs as well. :WTF:

 

who is Angua

From Terry Pratchett's Disc World Novel "Man at Arms". ;) I won't spoiler more if you don't know it yet.

Wait, what? Mazzy has a threesome with Viconis in this mod, too? On top of Imoen? I mean ... [System unavailable. Rebooting...]

Ah, I heard about it but never read anything from his works, thanks for info.

I'm usually liberal about those things ( however they seem improbable and out of character, like Vicy and Mazzy BFF with "benefits" and Imoen being halfling groupie girl ) and don't get terribly upset about these kind of fantasies ( intense dislike for Jaheira and blowing Viconia's "awesomeness"  out of all proportions )  but degrading someone to bestiality ( even imaginary character)  and thinking it will be humorous or funny is... just no ( and makes me want to vomit).

Greenhorn: I am not sure what you mean by bestiality. It does work if the animal is chracterized as an individuum with a minimum of intelligence. That's how it work in Terry Pratchett's book, where you get the impression the wolf is actually the better mate in some instances... and Angua is not only a woman. But gnah, I already spoilered too much...

Heh Jastey, I didn't meant Terrry Pratchett's Disc World, as I didn't read it and I can't and I won't judge it. I meant bear human ( half elf, humanoid) whatever relationship. I'm sure it will be blast. I just hope there will be threesome. Or that CHARNAME will be cuckolded by Wilson. After all, why stop only on Sarevok and Viconia.  :lol:

Ah, but without knowing anything about the plans I would guess the Jaheira-Wilson Romance would base upon the druid shifting abilities (Jaheira changing into a bear).

At least that what I'd assume...

And Wilson couldn't polymorph into a ... why ? And the game has Polymorph Others. Yes, technically they morph into a squirrel, but that doesn't need to be the case if the caster so wishes.

If you polymorph Wilson hell just be some guy with a mind of a feral animal which is still bestiality

you might think its not because that description refers to a lot of dudes irl but it is

Heh, I was thinking of Angua too. I read that scene as a kid when 5th Elephant first came out and it scarred me for years. XD
