Thanks, I did that, and I have now 'defeated' Irenicus. But I still don't know how to get to dungeon level three. I explored two dungeons, then got spirited away to the sanity test, then was released into the asylum proper, where I released the prisoners. But I missed a dungeon. Did I screw up or ca...

Asylum dungeon three

I am confused. When I left the second dungeon from the bottom in Spellhold I was immediately put through a series of tests to verify my sanity. I was expecting to find myself in another dungeon (dungeon 3), but instead I was released, and accosted by Saemon who told me to release some prisoners. Hav...

I think that names are hugely important to BG2 and a crucial part of the atmosphere. Like other players, I draw on Viking history and saga for some of my names. I once had a dwarf warrior named 'Thorkell the short'--an inversion of the real Thorkell the Tall, who conquered England for Sweyn Forkbear...

proficiencies

I am a level 12 kensai. My current proficiencies are: katana **** longsword ** dual wield ** How many more proficiencies can I expect to get in the game? Any advice as to how to distribute them? This topic seems oddly neglected in the manual. No info is given about the number of proficiencies one ca...

Maybe you accidentally killed someone without realizing it. I did this in BG1 when I lobbed a fireball at some ankhegs and accidentally took out a Paladin. Oops. With all due respect to the Holy Father, I have to disagree with the Pope about charisma. I used to think it was worthless, but now I am u...

horny dwarf

This is . . . er . . . a . . . er . . . delicate matter, but here goes. Other BG2 players often refer to something they coyly call "romancing" and what I (in my long past youth) used to call "getting laid." It seems that some of you get lucky with Jaheira, Aeerie, and Viconia. My problem is this: I'...

My confession: I'm a 42-year-old University Professor. If my wife found out about this secret hobby, my meat would be dead meat. If my colleagues found out, my reputation would be toast. Actually, getting laid is a bit of a problem even in the game when you are an uncharismatic dwarf, as I am (in th...
