You and I are on the same page. Yesterday I was rereading through the entire bug list postings, and one thing stood out, and that was a comment by you (maybe a few times) where you questioned if the patch was properly installed (or if it was installed at all). So I took it upon myself to do a total dump and did a fresh download of the 1.0.1 setup and did a complete reinstall. At this point my freshly rolled party is just entering the Keep for the first time, so it'll be a while before I can report back any findings. Next week I will be out of town for a business trip. That means late night D&D sessions in my hotel room play KotB, so I may make more progress than I suspect Thanks a bunch.
