Good point on Lilarcor. If you have Kivan (mod) with you in the sewers, he'll also comment on the PC robbing the skeletons of the lovers - who must have died a horrible death, chained to the wall in the sewers - and there are a few ways you can go from there to actually get Lilarcor in a different way. It's a small thing, but I like it. As to the Gith - I think that "every evil must be destroyed right away, slash slash!" is a pretty stupid creed, so if your lawful char has 6 INT it might be actually a good choice . If you want to go with the "enemy of my enemy", then you have to think whether only being at war with the illithids is enough to get favours from surface people? I'm not so sure about that. Frankly, while Mind Flayers are disgusting, inhumane and horrible, a well equipped party can eradicate a whole city of them, and once you protect yourself from their mind powers they are just another type of monster. I find the drow much worse, because they chose to be such massive jerkasses (and because they are a stupid concept, not to mention tailored, as a race, to prove that a society where women aren't inferior will invariably become a nightmare ). If both the Githyanki and Illithids are evil and are at war, I'd say keeping the weapon from them is your best bet - let them continue the conflict and destroy each other without your help. If you really want to, leave the blade in some temple or in the government building or something, for "safekeeping" - that way nobody profits from the theft or the weapon.
