PRIESTS
To cast a spell, the character must first have the spell memorized. If it is not memorized, the spell cannot be cast. Each night after eight hours of sleep, the spell caster can memorize the spells for the day. The number of spells is determined by the caster's level, class and ability scores.

Unlike the wizard, the priest needs no spell book and does not roll to see if he learns spells. Priest spells are obtained in an entirely different manner. To obtain his spells, a priest must be faithful to the cause of his deity. If the priest feels confident in this (and most do), he can pray for his spells. Through prayer, the priest humbly and politely requests those spells he wishes to memorize. Under normal circumstances, these spells are then granted. Like the wizard, the priest's level determines how many spells he retains. He must select these spells in advance, demonstrating his wisdom and far-sightedness by choosing those spells he thinks will be most useful in the trials that lurk ahead.

The spells of a priest, while sometimes having powers similar to those of the wizard, are quite different in their overall tone. The priest's role, more often than not, is as defender and guide for others. Thus, the majority of his spells work to aid others or provide some service to the community in which he lives. Few of his spells are truly offensive, but many can be used cleverly to protect or defend.

The priest spells are classified into spheres. Clerics can cast all spells except those from Animal, Plant or Weather spheres and have only minor access to the Elemental sphere, restricting them to spells of 3rd or lower level. Druids can only cast spells from the All, Animal, Elemental, Healing, Plant, and Weather spheres as well as minor access to the Divination sphere.

Casting a spell requires verbal (V), and/or somatic (S) components where somatic refers to hand and body gestures. The caster must be able to speak (not under the effects of a silence spell or gagged) for verbal spells and have both arms free for spells with somatic components. Once the casting has begun, the character must stand still. For spell durations, 1 turn is equal to 10 rounds where one round is 1 seconds in the game. Casting times are normally stated in segments, with one segment equal to one tenth of a round. PlanetBaldursGate - A Member of the GameSpy Network

WIZARDS
To cast a spell, the character must first have the spell memorized. If it is not memorized, the spell cannot be cast. Each night after eight hours of sleep, the spell caster can memorize the spells for the day. The number of spells is determined by the caster's level, class and ability scores.

Casting a wizard spell is a very complicated ordeal. The process of learning the correct procedure to cast a spell is difficult and taxing to the mind. Thus, a wizard must check to see if he learns each new spell and is limited in the number of spells he can learn. wizard spells range from spells of simple utility to great and powerful magics. The wizard spell group has no single theme or purpose. The vast majority of wizard spells were created by ancient wizards for many different purposes. Some are to serve the common man in his everyday needs. Others provide adventurers with the might and firepower they need to survive. Some are relatively simple and safe to use (as safe as magic can be); others are complicated, filled with hazards and snares for the rash and unwary.

All of a wizard's spells must be transcribed into his spellbook which in the game is part of the character sheet. At creation, the mage gains a few first level spells. All subsequent spells must be copied from scrolls that have either been found or bought, a process that destroys the scroll. Within the spellbook are all the instructions for memorizing and casting all the spells the mage knows. As the wizard successfully learns a new spell, he carefully enters its formula into his spell books. A wizard can never have a spell in his books that he does not know, because if he doesn't understand it, he cannot write the formula. Likewise, he cannot enter a spell into his books that is higher in level than he can cast. If he finds an scroll with spells of higher power, he must simply wait until he advances to a level at which he can use them.

Casting a spell requires verbal (V), and/or somatic (S) components where somatic refers to hand and body gestures. Material components present in AD&D are not necessary to cast spells in Baldur's Gate. The caster must be able to speak (not under the effects of a silence spell or gagged) for verbal spells and have both arms free for spells with somatic components. Once the casting has begun, the character must stand still. For spell durations, 1 turn is equal to 10 rounds where one round is 1 seconds in the game. Casting times are normally stated in segments, with one segment equal to one tenth of a round. PlanetBaldursGate - A Member of the GameSpy Network

Wild Mage

A new class is available to the player in character creation. This class is the Wild Mage.

Wild magic is a new type of magic that is characterized by powerful and dangerous surges and unpredictable effects. Generally considered to be an unfortunate byproduct of the Time of Troubles, wild magic has recently begun to attract the attention of many a curious or scholarly wizard.

Wild Mages are wizards who specialize in the study of wild magic. They have access to spells to protect themselves from Wild Magic and bend it to their wills. Wild magic is extremely unpredictable and should be used with caution.

Every time a Wild Mage casts a spell there is a 5% chance that the spell explodes in a Wild Surge. A Wild Surge does some completely random magical effect. A roll is made on the Wild Surge Chart; higher rolls are usually better than the lower rolls. A Wild Mage's casting level also varies slightly whenever he casts a spell - anywhere between five levels lower and five levels higher than the Wild Mage's true level. There are also three brand new spells available to the Wild Mage and ONLY the Wild Mage. These spells are Chaos Shield, Nahal's Reckless Dweomer and Improved Chaos Shield.

The Wild Mage uses the same XP Progression and Spell Progression tables as the Mage. The Wild Mage can draw from a high level ability pool which gives the Wild Mage some extra spells.


Mage

Mages have powerful spells and when unspecialized, can cast them from any school. Mages can simultaneously memorize the number of spells per day as outlined in the progression table. The prime requisite for mages is intelligence with the minimum being 9. In ToB, the Mage can draw from a high level ability pool which gives the Mage some extra spells.


Sorcerer

Sorcerers are practitioners of magic who were born with the innate ability to cast spells. It is thought that the blood of some powerful creature flows through their veins; perhaps they are the spawn of the gods themselves, or even dragons walking in humanoid form. Regardless, the sorcerer's magic is intuitive rather than logical. They know fewer spells than wizards, and acquire spells more slowly, by they can cast spells more often and have no need to select and prepare spells ahead of time. Sorcerers cannot specialize in magic the way wizards to. other than these differences, a sorcerer is very similar to the wizard. Note: A sorcerer does not learn spells from scrolls. He chooses new spells with each level. A sorcerer's prime requisite is intelligence and they use the mage avatar. A sorcerer's spell progression can be found here. In ToB, the Sorcerer can draw from a high level ability pool which gives the Sorcerer some extra spells.

Specialist Mages

Specialist mages have become narrowly trained in a specific field of magic. Specialists receive one additional spell per spell level (does not have to be from their school) than unspecialized mages do in the progression table. Because of their specialization, these mages receive a +15% chance to learn spells from their school but suffer a -15% penalty when learning spells outside their specialty. When saving against spells within his chosen school, the specialist receives a +1 to saving throws. Similarily, the specialist's enemies suffer a -1 penalty when saving against spells cast by the specialist within his field. Specialists are unable to cast spells from the opposing school. Mages must be single-classed or dual-classed to specialize with the exception of gnomes. Gnomes can only be illusionists so are permitted to multiclass. A specialist must have a 9 intelligence in addition to the School-specific minimum ability from the table below. The prime requesites for specialty mages are intelligence and their School's ability. In ToB, the Specialist Mage can draw from a high level ability pool which gives the Specialist Mage some extra spells.

School Descriptions

You can goto schools to learn spells

Abjuration spells are a group of specialized protective spells. Each is used to prevent or banish some magical or nonmagical effect or creature. They are often used to provide safety in times of great danger or when attempting some other particularly dangerous spell.

Alteration spells cause a change in the properties of some already existing thing, creature, or condition. This is accomplished by magical energy channeled through the wizard.

Conjuration/Summoning spells bring something to the caster from elsewhere. Conjuration normally produces matter or items from some other place. Summoning enables the caster to compel living creatures and powers to appear in his presence or to channel extraplanar energies through himself.

Divination spells enable the wizard to learn secrets long forgotten, to predict the future, and to uncover things hidden or cloaked by spells.

Enchantment/Charm spells cause a change in the quality of an item or the attitude of a person or creature. Enchantments can bestow magical properties on ordinary items, while charms can unduly influence the behavior of beings.

Illusions/Phantasms deal with spells to deceive the senses or minds of others. Spells that cause people to see things that are not there, hear noises not made, or remember things that never happened are all illusions.

Invocation/Evocation spells channel magical energy to create specific effects and materials. Invocation normally relies on the intervention of some higher agency (to whom the spell is addressed), while evocation enables the caster to directly shape the energy.

Necromancy is one of the most restrictive of all spell schools. It deals with dead things or the restoration of life, limbs, or vitality to living creatures. Although a small school, its spells tend to be powerful. Given the risks of the adventuring world, necromantic spells are considered quite useful.
Races


Race is the character’s species: human, elf, dwarf, gnome, half-elf or halfling are the most common choices. For Baldur's Gate II, the half-orc has also been introduced. A character's race will affect their ability scores upon creation and will limit the choice of the character’s class.

Dwarf

Dwarves are short, stocky fellows, easily identified by their size and shape. They average 4 to 4 1/2 feet tall and have ruddy cheeks, dark eyes, and dark hair. Dwarves generally live for about 350 years. They are a cunning race of sturdy workers and craftsmen, especially resistant to magic and poison. During combat, dwarves receive bonuses when attacking man-sized giant-class creatures and are adept at dodging the attacks of larger giant-class creatures. Infravision allows dwarves to see heat emanations from objects up to 60' in the dark.

Elf

Elves tend to be somewhat shorter and slimmer than normal humans. Their features are finely chiseled and delicate, and they speak in melodic tones. Although they appear fragile and weak, as a race they are quick and strong. Elves often live as long as 1200 years. They are nearly immune to Sleep and Charm spells and are adept at finding hidden objects. During combat, elves receive +1 bonuses when attacking with swords and bows. Elves also have infravision which allows them to see up to 60' in darkness. In AD&D, they cannot be raised from the dead, however, in BG they can be.

Gnome

Gnomes are shorter and slimmer than their dwarven cousins, but have significantly larger noses. Most gnomes have dark tan or brown skin and white hair. A typical gnome lives for 350 years. They are especially resistant to magic, and have a natural affinity to the magic school of Illusion. During combat, gnomes receive bonuses when attacking man-sized giant-class creatures and are adept at dodging the attacks of larger giant-class creatures.

Half-Elf

Half-elves are usually much like their elven parent in appearance. They are handsome folk, with the good features of both races. They mingle freely with either race, being only slightly taller than the average elf (5' 6" on average) and weighing about 150 pounds. They typically live about 160 years. While they do not have all the abilities of the elf, they are still somewhat resistant to sleep and charm spells and are adept at finding hidden objects. Half-elves also have infravision up to 60' from their elven parent. Of all the demi-human races, half-elves have the greatest range of choices in character class.

Halfling

Halflings are short, generally plump people, very much like small humans. Their faces are round and broad and often quite florid. Their hair is typically curly and the tops of their feet are covered with coarse hair. Their prefer not to wear shoes whenever possible. Their typical life expectancy is approximately 150 years. Halflings gain a +1 bonus to their attack rolls when using thrown weapons or slings. Depending on lineage, certain halflings have infravision, and all are especially resistant to magic and poison.

Half-Orc

Another example of a hybrid, half-orcs are products of human and orc parents. Of a height similar to half-elves, half-orcs usually resemble their human parent enough to pass for a human in public. Their skin ranges from peach to olive to deep tan, and their hair can be blond, red, brown, black, gray, and shades in between. Half-orcs have infravision.

Human

Humans are the most common player race in the Forgotten Realms. They suffer no level racial limitations or ability modifiers. They can be any class including all eight specialist mages or dual-classed.

Racial Ability Adjustments

Ability scores are modified based on the character's race as described below. It is possible to achieve a 19 in an ability by addition of these bonuses.

Racial Ability Adjustments

Race Adjustment
Dwarf +1 Constitution, -1 Charisma
Elf +1 Dexterity, -1 Constitution
Gnome +1 Intelligence, -1 Wisdom
Halfling +1 Dexterity, -1 Strength
Half-Elf None
Half-Orc +1 Strength, +1 Constitution, -2 Charisma
Human None
Alignments

Alignment is a guide to a character’s basic moral and ethical attitudes toward others, society, good, evil, and the forces of the universe in general. The chosen alignment is a guide of how the character will handle moral dilemmas. Although alignment defines general attitudes, it certainly doesn’t prevent a character from changing his beliefs, acting irrationally, or behaving out of character. Alignment is divided into two sets of attitudes. Order and Chaos, and Good and Evil. Combining the different variations in the sets, nine alignments are created.

Lawful Good

Characters of this alignment believe that an orderly, strong society with a well-organized government can work to make life better for the majority of the people. To ensure the quality of life, laws must be created and obeyed. When people respect the laws and try to help one another, society as a whole prospers. Therefore, Lawful Good characters strive for those things that will bring the greatest benefit to the most people and cause the least harm. An honest and hard-working farmer, a kindly and wise king, or a stern but forthright minister of justice are all examples of Lawful Good people.

Lawful Neutral

Order and organization are of paramount importance. They believe in a strong, well-ordered government, whether that government is a tyranny or benevolent democracy. The benefits of organization and regimentation outweigh any moral questions raised by their actions. An inquisitor determined to ferret out traitors at any cost or a soldier who never questions his orders are examples of Lawful Neutral behavior.

Lawful Evil

These characters believe in using society and its laws to benefit themselves. Structure and organization elevate those who deserve to rule as well as provide a clearly defined hierarchy between master and servant. To this end, Lawful Evil characters support laws and societies that protect their own concerns. If someone is hurt or suffers because of a law that benefits Lawful Evil characters, too bad. Lawful Evil characters obey laws out of fear of punishment. Because they may be forced to honor an unfavorable contract or oath they have made, Lawful Evil characters are usually very careful about giving their word. Once given, they break their word only if their can find a way to do it legally, within the laws of the society. An iron-fisted tyrant and a devious, greedy merchant are examples of Lawful Evil beings.

Neutral Good

These characters believe that a balance of forces is important, but that the concerns of law and chaos do not moderate the need for good. Since the universe is vast and contains many creatures striving for different goals, a determined pursuit of good will not upset the balance; it may even maintain it. If fostering good means supporting organized society, then that is what must be done. If good can only come about through the overthrow of existing social order, so be it. Social structure itself has no innate value to them. A baron who violates the orders of his king to destroy something he sees as evil is an example of a Neutral Good character.

True Neutral

True Neutral characters believe in the ultimate balance of forces, and they refuse to see actions as good or evil. Since the majority of people in the world make judgements, True Neutral characters are extremely rare. True Neutrals do their best to avoid siding with the forces of either good or evil, law or chaos. It is their duty to see that all of these forces remain in balanced contention. True Neutral characters sometimes find themselves forced into rather peculiar alliances. To a great extent, they are compelled to side with the underdog in any given situation, sometimes even changing sides, as the previous loser becomes the winner. A True Neutral druid might join the local barony to put down a tribe of evil gnolls, only to drop out or switch sides when the gnolls were brought to the brink of destruction. He would seek to prevent either side from becoming too powerful. Clearly, there are very few True Neutral characters in the world.

Neutral Evil

Neutral Evil characters are primarily concerned with themselves and their own advancement. They have no particular objection to working with others or, for that matter, doing it on their own. Their only interest is in getting ahead. If there is a quick and easy way to gain a profit, whether it is legal, questionable, or obviously illegal, they take advantage of it. Although Neutral Evil characters do not have the "every man for himself" attitude of chaotic characters, they have no qualms about betraying their friends and companions for personal gain. They typically base their allegiance on power and money, which makes them quite receptive to bribes. An unscrupulous mercenary, a common thief, and a double-crossing informer who betrays people to the authorities to protect and advance himself are typical examples of Neutral Evil characters.

Chaotic Good

Chaotic Good characters are strong individualists marked by a streak of kindness and benevolence. They believe in all the virtues of goodness and right, but they have little use for laws and regulations. They have no use for people who "try to push others around and tell them what to do". Their actions are guided by their own moral compass which, although good, may not always be in perfect agreement with the rest of society. A brave frontiersman forever moving on as settlers follow in his wake is an example of a Chaotic Good character.

Chaotic Neutral

Chaotic Neutral characters believe that there is no order to anything, including their own actions. With this as a guiding principle, they tend to follow whatever whim strikes them at the moment. Good and evil are irrelevant when making a decision. Chaotic Neutral characters are extremely difficult to deal with. Such characters have been known to cheerfully and for no apparent reason purposely gamble away everything they have on the roll of a single die. They are almost totally unreliable. In fact, the only reliable thing about them is that they cannot be relied upon! This alignment is perhaps the most difficult to play. Lunatics and madmen tend toward Chaotic Neutral behavior.

Chaotic Evil

These characters are the bane of all that is good and organized. Chaotic Evil characters are motivated by the desire for personal gain and pleasure. They see absolutely nothing wrong with taking whatever they want by whatever mean possible. Laws and governments are the tools of weaklings unable to fend for themselves. The strong have the right to take whatever they want, and the weak are there to be exploited. When Chaotic Evil characters band together, they are not motivated by a desire to cooperate, but rather to oppose powerful enemies. Such a group can be held together only by a strong leader capable of bullying his underlings into obedience. Since leadership is based on raw power, a leader is likely to be replaced at the first sign of weakness by anyone who can take his position away from him by any method. Bloodthirsty buccaneers and monsters of low intelligence are fine examples of Chaotic Evil personalities.

Story

Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn has a large central, nonlinear plotline which is broken down into 7-8 chapters, with lots of subquests and small adventures thrown in for variety. The number of item recovery type quests have been greatly diminished and there will be more class- and alignment-specific quests. Completing quests will have greater consequences and recognition as well. The story unfolds thorough dialog which has been made much more complex. Although the amount of dialog has also increased, it is presented more concisely, increasing the speed and your ability to interject. In multiplayer, most dialog does not pause the game and require everyone to watch; only the most significant information will do so.

Plot

You are a product of the Time of Troubles, a cataclysmic period in the Forgotten Realms when the gods were made flesh and forced to walk the earth among their followers. One such deity foresaw both the event and his inevitable downfall because of it, and left a score of mortal progeny across the land, intended to fuel his rebirth. Your fate is intertwined with that of this god, this Bhaal, Lord of Murder.

In Baldur's Gate during the year 1368 DR (12 years after the Time of Troubles), the Sword Coast was destabilized when a strange plague caused a shortage of iron, the lifeblood of a medieval-esque society. You brought the area back from the brink of war, and thwarted the plans of that madman, Sarevok, that sought to build a rule with paranoia and death.

In Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn, early the next year (1369 DR), you face an uncertain future, with a lineage that tempts the unscrupulous to use you and the ignorant to fear you. You will face a foe that views you as no more than chattel, that toys with you at every turn; a villain whose goals go beyond a quest for power, and who threatens to use a lost companion as a tool for destruction unparalleled. The choices to be made will not be easy, and you may have to align with the lesser of evils, when all evils cannot help but seem equal. In the end you will have mourned lost loves, celebrated new ones, and had adventures that profoundly shaped the Realms.

It's "Baldur", not "Baulder".

This thread also lacks some core content. Ok, so we know that the gameplay mechanics are core ad&d rules, but you haven't said anything about the game itself. Where does it take place? (i.e. Forgotten Realms, but where exactly?)
What are you doing there?

You should also make your own items rather than copy/paste the items in BG / BG2. I mean, the +1/+2/+3 items are pretty generic, but items like "+5 AC" boots of avoidance, you should make some like these yourself...

Try not to "copy" a game/anime, come out with your own, trust me, it doesn't last long. Anyway if you insist... Well darn exam is farcing near, after the next week keep me updated..

Well, hey if you are wondering about my memory leaking skills with trigger, Go epicwar and search for "LSC", download the one with 'legendary stage challenge v5.2.8bt5.w3x", file name, thats the latest and see if it lags

Just for your information, to check on memory leaks(correct me if I am wrong), open up task manager(control+alt+delete), go to applications, right click warcraft.exe and select "Go To Process", the "Memory Usage" represents, memory used per second.

Now If there is leaks, the memory used per second should increase really fast, if there is no much leak, the memory used per second will be accelerating really really slowly. For the case of dota, at level 13 at a 5v5 the memory usage reached 270k while my map only reached 180k somewhere around 20 minutes game.

Cheers see you a week after
