Okay, so I'm playing with the new 5.0.2 and FE, voice packs, etc. My party's at the area where all the bugbears and ogre's are, down near Hedrack. I trash everything in the room, level my toons up on the fight. As I'm leveling, this shaman wanders up from the Ogre Chief area. No problem, I have Wonnilon with me and my Wizard's little hawk familiar. The fight is a short one, 2 rounds due to distance from the shaman for my melee's. The bird however, made it to the shaman on the first round and for the shaman's first action, he dispelled my bird. *shrug* Oh well, he had no enchantments on him anyway. Fight ends, I continue leveling up, save game. Next fight, a random when I'm trying to rest for new spells. Bingo, Hawk levels up.... Uhm, excuse me? How the heck did the hawk level up? Anyway, make it short, the hawk is now a level 5 Wizard and can now summon his own familiar, though he still cannot wear any items or use any weapons. *shrug* He's got a lot of HP now tho. LOL Have fun trying to reproduce this one. Not sure if it'll work with a PC cast dispell. Perhaps I'll make a new game and find out. Later all.
