No, the cool thing to do is go pacifist most of the time, then break out the Kung-fu if you have to fight.

I suggest installing the NMA fan patch for Fallout 2, that fixes numerous bugs, quest loops, broken dialogue chains and typos.

-EDIT- This should be the most current version. The file depot also contains various other fixes, to help the old game function better on newer computer. Like higher resolution support.

Based on what people are saying it looks like I'll be playing a chaotic neutral gunslinger with a silver tongue. Well, the first real update should be soon.

Time for the new first update.

Here's the character I put together based on what people were saying, and yes that name is dwarven.


You know I actually thought about skipping over the temple and just starting the lp in Arroyo, but then I figured that if I had to suffer so should you.


Ah the forced tutorial level, it truly is the most vile thing you can put in a game.


There are a few side passages here and there but other than going up this one to show you I'll be skipping over them so I can get out of here faster.


Oh no a locked door, what will I do?


Ok now this is just silly, why would some spear chucking primitives have some c4, dynamite I could understand but c4, really? Just goes to show how rushed this area is I suppose.


And now for my skills of persuasion to come in to play for the first time. Also this is the only time in the temple were you have multiple options on how to handle something. (Just a note the highlighted answer is the one I picked.)


Sorry about cutting off part of the conversation here but I was in a hurry to get out and forgot to get a screenshot of the second part.




And I'm done with this place.
Now it may interest you to know that the temple of trials wasn't originally a part of the game, you see someone in charge thought people would be to dumb to read the manual or something and forced the developers to throw this together at the last second, hence it's lower quality.

Next Update Arroyo

If I remember correctly, if you have a high enough speech skill, you can talk to the guy south of the temple entrance and convince him that it's a complete waste of time and skip it.

I know but people wanted their intelligence and charisma.  ::)

I just tried that with a new character with 85 speech and he wouldn't let me through, so my guess is that your thinking of something from a mod.

What's more interesting, still screens of you punching dudes to death endlessly from start to finish, or being able to read all the cool story and character stuff?

I donno, I thought this LP was pretty fun in it's own hugely un-PC kind of way.
