comment Is there any way to get the original Fallout and Fallout 2 working on a Mac?
Very nice! I fought through WINE using MacPorts, which worked out OK, and then wound up writing a shell script to launch from Finder.

Good call, my contribution is now deleted. :)

Wound up clearing Fort Independence. Didn't really want to, but Protector Casdin took my Outcast Power Armor right off my body! (Got a tiny bit of negative karma, but stayed neutral and got the achievement. Now back to the quests!)

And I was wrong. Now that I'm back in my game, I see that I'm < 500 away ... :)

I didn't consider revisiting that ... Good call. Also thinking of trying to find (again) Dunwich ... Ghouls are a good slaughter for non-karmic XP. Too bad I'm so high up I'll start getting those darned Reavers ...

@Beska: Because I am, essentially, right about to level ... Yes, I'm a "couple thousand" away, but I'm close enough that I feel uncomfortable karmic questing ...

comment Staying neutral at high levels in Fallout 3
Way ahead of you there. Been using that tactic all along. It's just at the achievement points that I want to avoid questing (or at least karma questing) altogether. The currently-assigned quest I know will result in some karmic change (the simulation in Vault 112, I believe?), so I want to be level 20 before that even begins. :)

comment is there a specific difficult scenario with the leveling problem in Oblivion?
Baurus would be that guard, I believe. And every time I've played Oblivion, I've lost Baurus and/or Jauffre in this fight. Guess that's because I'm usually level 25 or 30 when I get there, now that you mention it! :)

For what it's worth, I did end up buying the Windows version of the trilogy, if only because it's about $11 + shipping, and the Mac version has a ton of reported problems now that newer Macs don't support 256-color mode. It'll either go through WINE, VMWare or BootCamp. (Probably starting at WINE.)
