I don't want the game to be anything like tabletop. If I want to play tabletop, I can go do that. In BG3, just as with BG1&2, want a VIDEO game. A single player video game. No table. No other players. Just me, playing a video game.

Then what are you doing wasting your time here? This game is going to be as close as we can get to tabletop gaming. You will be able to play it by yourself or with friends.
