Is there more than one? And is it possible to miss it?

Thanks

I don't exactly, but here is a candidate:

Do you have Yoshimo in your party?

If you have Yoshimo in your party when you go to Spellhold, you will eventually find his heart. Give this to any Temple of Illmater for lots of XP.

Cause the loop at the end of Jaheira's romance (with all these bugs it isn't very difficult) = infinite number of harper pins + 100000 exp.

There are many i cant remember. Most big are the ones you must go through though, like killing Bodhi.

But yoshimos heart gives 200000 exp and is very easy, and i think unseeing eye quest gives plenty, as well as helping the thieves guild ge rid of that other thief (cant remember his name, might be Maeven)

The biggest exp. you get you can not see.....when you are finished with a big quest you hear that nice sound (level up) and two of your NPC's just leveled up if you look at the buttom of the screen there are no exp. anywhere ????!!!
I don't have an explanation does anyone???
I belive one of the times is when you leave jon's doungeon and another is when you leave from the thievs guild by boat.
perhaps chapter exp. ?????

The invisible experience happened to me after finishing the De'Arnise Hold, among other times. Maybe some sort of random glitch that doesn't allow the program to post exp. to dialogue box sometimes.

Finishing each of Aran Linvail's quests gives:
1 - 28,500 per character
2 - 28,500 per character
3 - 50,000 per character ( in addition, this quest gives lots of experience for killing vampires & staking them, as well as golems and grim warders - possibly as much as 200,000 all up)

In other words, almost 1,000,000 exp in toto for a full party of 6.

Killing Bohdi and her friends second tome round in the graveyard gives you a heap of XP. I think Bohdi herself is worth about 89,000 plus the 20 or so other vampires who are worth 6000 or so each. Its a lot of XP!
Dont take Drizzt though because he hogs all the XP for himself, the greedy SOB.

By the way Manveru, what does the Harper Pin do? Currently I have Jaheira in my group for the second time and I dont think I'll complete her romance so I'm curious.

I think the Temple Dungeon Quest gives pretty experience, also its really not t´hat hard.
They give you about 20000 exp every time you solve one of the mini quests (the statues and so on) in the dungeon. Then there are the skeleton warriors which give 4000 each. Then the bone golem with 18000 exp points and when you kill the shade lord at least every member of your party will get about 45000 exp. Wasnt able to kill the Shadow Dragon yet, but i think he will give an additional bunch of experience, too.
