Mordenkainen's Sword spell - where can I get it?

I have completed BG2 for the 1st time (hurrah!) but I remember people saying that they could pick up an amulet left once Mordenkainen's sword was 'defeated' which was very helpful against mind flayers. I don't recall ever having seen the scroll either for sale or while adventuring. Can anyone help?

I have kept Minsc & Jaheira and recovered Imoen, as all of these characters were members of my party in BG. I felt that from a roleplaying point of view my character would stick with his loyal party members. That leaves Aerie & Nalia and my character who is a fighter, imported from BG. This gives a ...

It seems from reading other threads that in some cases at least, you can end up waiting forever for the ambush / jaheira to continue the romance - you've obviously been lucky or clever, Ripper! There either seems to be a bug or a very strict way in which you need to do things for it all to go smooth...

Thanks again - I shall check out Shadowkeeper/the 'technical' options mentioned, sounds like even I could use them! Has this issue been raised with Black Isle because its a shame to put a lot of effort into the game (on their & our part) but for it not to work for so many people. Presumably they thi...

PS - I have also done the 'poisoned Harper' and was doing well with the Jaheira romance plot until it all went quiet.

Thanks for the info & link - looks like I'm not the only one!!! I have done the locket & Xsar but like others that's where the Harper involvement ends - no ambushes etc. I see that there are 'technical'ways to get things going again but I don't really know about these so I guess I shall have to hope...

Jaheira and the Harpers - why no interaction?

I have just read that Jaheira is meant to have various interactions with the Harpers, but none of these have happened even though she has always been in my party. Bug, or have I not done something to trigger these? Hope someone can help.

Thanks for the advice - I assumed that they just kept on coming (I got too close to all of the portals while exploring so each portal was 'activated' - oops) - tried the 'protection' tactic which worked but was quite tricky; knowing that eventually the portals will become 'exhausted' is very helpful...

Help-earth elemental keeps killing Vithal in Underdark

I have freed the mage Vithal in the Underdark but he goes off to the earth elemental gate and keeps getting himself killed before I can return with the Book of Rituals. Can someone help - the only thing I can think of is to leave all but one of my party behind to protect him & send one off to collec...

Take your point re the easy & hard way, Magus - more late nights ahead then. Thanks to you both re the tip concerning Saemon. I have just agreed to meet him at the tavern, so I have got the choice. From what you have both said, I assume I am right in saying that whether I go via the portal or with S...

Underdark - Is there more than one way in?

I have just completed the asylum areas but as I wanted to find Imoen asap (its a role-playing thing) I have not really done much outside of the main 'required quests'. Don't really want to go to the Underdark yet - I was hoping it would be possible to access it later/after returning to the mainland ...
