Has anyone tried to attack the Asylum Coordinator (i.e. Irenicus) before he declares himself?

What happens?

Damn Cheats!

Can anyone think of sections of the game where it 'cheats'. I can think of two in particular: 1. Recently cast 6th level cleric spell against a mage w. Minor Spell Turning. It came back. Huh? - should only reflect up to 4 levels. 2. Starting combat against mages, they always react before I can even ...

Three words: Tolkien is God. On top of that, any self respecting fantasy fan HAS to read Terry Pratchett's wonderfully satirical and genre-mocking Discworld series.

Inquisitors would judge evil spell casters not by alignment but by their deeds. Evil alignment represents selfishness, self interest, p...

I was a bit miffed with the assumptions that BlackIsle made about the composition of your party - how hard would it have been to check in the BG1 saved game (if you imported, as I did) to see who you had and modify the dialogue just slightly. In BG1 I 'accidentally' allowed Jaheira's husband to die,...

Well, I'm a relative newbie, having only just reached the Asylum w. my Fighter lead character turning 11th level just before we set off. Gurt - Dwarf Beserker (main) Taleena - Human Dual Thief-Fighter (Archer) Imoen Aerie Anomen Jaheira Both the fighters are imported from BG1, giving me excellent me...
