Nice crossing over from BG1

Postby cloudstone » Fri Oct 13, 2000 2:29 pm

I just finished BG2 and started over from BG1 with a Fighter/Mage/Cleric. I thought I would point something out that I just happened to stumble across. In Baldur's Gate
there is an artist sculpting something in a cliffside at the Nashkal Mines whom you can save from the bounty hunter Greywolf. What he says at the end is after you save him is: 'Alas, my work is complete. Take what you will from my possessions, but leave the sparkle in her eyes. O sweet creature, My effigy to thee is done. Perhaps our paths shall cross in distant Realms, and I shall find the courage to call thy name: Ellesime!' Ellesime is the name of the elf queen you save in the ending chapters of BG2. Image

The deceased sculptor Prism even gets mentioned while doing the sculptor quest for the temple.

There is quite a bit of continuity from BG1.

I noticed a really good link from bg1: *Spoiler*

It is when you get to winspear hills and are tricked into attacking the knights, after you have killed them if anomen is in your party he will say that he recognises one of the dead knights as a brave man named Adjantis. Who was of course one of the possible party members in bg1. I thought this was a really cool idea as it was so subtle yet required a lot of thought.

Anyone noticed any other mentions/apperances of characters from bg 1. (Except the obvious ones of Minsc, Jaheira, Viconia, Edwin, Dyanahaier, Khalid, Xzar and Montaron) Such as Branwen, Kivan, Xan, Yeslick and Shar Teel.

garrick is trying to court a lady outside the order of the radiant heart

tiax is locked up in spellhold

dradeel, the elven mage you met on the werewolf isle is also locked up in spellhold..and is seeing were's everywhere

you can meet safana and coran in one of the extra areas that gets unlocked on the surface after you escape the underdark

neb, the villain you got imprisoned with in the flaming fist dungeon will make an appearance during the church sculpture quest..you can take his head to the government building for a reward

just went on a web site which said about the npcs for bg1, there were 25 in total, whoa I missed a load, including kahlid and jaheira. i only knew they were from bg1 because the manual said so. I noticed that tiax was also an npc (he is in the asylum in bg2) as well. I also forgot to mention aeire's uncle quayle who was an npc in bg 1.

I'm not 100% sure about this one but the 'evil' druid in the druid grove is the same one you could get along from cloakwood in Bg1 - Faldorn.

Faldorn was really useful in BG1...

Someone said something about Xan the Elf, but I can't remember who...

When you play the tutorial you get Xan and Branwen in your party. Let me tell you that Xan hasn't changed a bit, he is still scared as sh*t
