Yea, I could share it no problem. Only thing is that it's a soundset for BG1. I'm sure you could just double up a few of the .wavs (and then rename them) since BG2 has a few more sounds for character voices than BG1 did. One more thing, it's a pretty large sound pack. Around 6 megs unzipped. So if y...

Just load a save game and kick Jaheria out of your party before you surface and you'll be fine. Before you kick her out, hand her some drow equipment. When you pick her back up in Atkathla, she'll have the equipment intact! Then you can fight the harpers without ruining the game.

Dude, if all you want is the two extra merchants in the game, it's only a 2K download. I posted a link to it a few days ago, all you have to do is scroll down a little.

Yea, I now see what you are saying. But casting spells from scrolls can put you in the poor house pretty quick. Even with a high reputation and charisma, the level 8+ spells are too expensive to waste by casting them from scrolls. And they are rare enough to make you think twice before casting, say,...

Uh, intelligence of 10 would limit the dude to level 5 spells. That's like saying that Jan is just as good a mage as say, Edwin or Imoen. Edwin is 50,000 EXP away from THREE level 9 spells. Can you say time stop, spell trap, and spellstrike? Plus with an intelligence of 10, the chance to learn a spe...

Hehe, I remember making a sound set from the movie Austin Powers with the voice of Dr. Evil. My favorite part was every time my party went into a dungeon, my lead character would say, "Welcome to my underground lair..."

Talk with the slave master again after you talk with the Matron Mother. Looks like you're on the right track, you just need to kill some time by resting a few times.

You can pickpocket Terminsel on 2 different occasions if you have Jaheria in your party long enough. He has a necklace of protection +1 and ring of protection +2 with him both times. You can pickpocket the Sahuagin prince for part of the "Wave" halberd. Uh, you can pickpocket Tolgerias in the govern...

Do you rest your party often? In a tavern? Try sleeping in the streets or in the wilderness too. I have no memory of how it came about exactly or when, but I seem to remember resting and she was suddenly out of the party and resting again and she was back, requesting that we go immediately to the Ha...

There's a "shelf" on the north wall of the library (yes, you have the right room). Just move your cursor slowly over it and it'll light up.

Oh, one thing I forgot, the Drow trick unfortunately doesn't work with Solaufein's cloak because the game engine considers it a "quest item". So when you kick a character out of your party with it in their inventory, they hand it off to your main character. And as far as I know, you can't kick your ...

Neat little tricks (minor spoilers)

Well, here's the first. You must have Jaheria in your party for a long time for this to work. Quite a while after dealing with the Harpers in Atkatha, and after a couple of run-ins with Dermin, Jaheria will leave your party while sleeping in the wilderness (ie outside a tavern). Anyhow, when you wak...

Simple. The d stands for die or dice. 1d8 means one eight-sided die. So damage is anywhere from 1 to 8 in this case. 2d8 stands for two eight-sided dice. Damage in this case ranges anywhere from 2 to 16. The numbers generated are entirely random. So here's a little test for you. Which is better, a s...

Those areas are both part of the "Cult of the Unseeing Eye" quest. Just pay a visit to the temple district, and walk around until you get an in game cut scene involving the cult in the streets. After the cutscene is over, you get an offer from the temple of Helm asking you to basically spy on this c...
