Heart of Winter is pleasantly surprising me with the quality of the content. I expected a high-level hack and slash fest, but the parts I’m going through have great writing, great voice acting, tough combat and interesting puzzles. It’s the whole package.

Last time, I told you about my party and I’ve beaten the last two big baddies of Icewind Dale. Now it’s time to get serious. I’m going to start to play Heart of Winter, which I know nothing about.
As I said, I’ll devote this report mostly to describe my party. Their names should already be familiar to any frequent visitor of this blog. Basically, I decided to start playing a roster of characters through all of my RPGs, hoping to improve the experience that way. Before any report, though, I have to finish chapter VI.
I’m stretching the reports, even after my decision to do one chapter per report. I think I’ll have to shorten it further until I feel I have enough written for a decent post. Icewind Dale is a combat heavy game, but other than that and the story, very little is happening. Ironically, this chapter wouldn’t fit into a single posting, even though it spanned weeks.
It’s been two weeks since I last played Icewind Dale, so this report will be about me trying to remember where I was at. It will also be about Chapter V, of course.
As I said before, I will be covering one chapter in every report. I could go with one report per session, but not all my sessions are equal in length or content, so that would probably end up sucking way more than this is. In this one, we cover Chapter IV.
I did it again. I’m spending so much time writing about Icewind Dale, I can’t find the time to actually play it. It’s time to tighten the belt again. This report will be about the entirety of chapter 3. If it feels too long, I’ll throw some of the less interesting things out. Let’s begin…
Dungeons like Dragon Eye are probably why Icewind Dale is considered more of a dungeon crawler than Baldur’s Gate. The thing is, I like dungeon crawlers to, just as much as whatever category Baldur’s Gate fits in. But let’s see what’s going on with these suspicious priests.
Before suiciding myself one more time in the deeper levels of Dragon Eye, I decided it was time to do some shopping in Kuldahar. Unlike before, money will be spent this time.
The whole “one dungeon per Icewind Dale report” thing seems to be working just fine for now. This time, it’s the Dragon Eye caverns.
