Speaking of the beggar,does anyone know what Anomen's reaction is,being Lawful Neutral (before successfully passing his Test).Even Viconia will stick up for the beggar.

Resurrecting Sarevok in T.O.B.

I've read various posts about people debating whether to resurrect Sarevok and have him join their party,or leave his deceased state unaltered.Just wondered if anyone has considered the third,riskier option : to resurrect him,and send him on his way? Potentially dangerous?Possibly,but this whole sce...

Romances and the end of T.O.B.

If,at the end of T.O.B.,the PC is elevated to godhood,which of the love interests would be willing to accompany him/her? For example,I can't see Aerie or Anomen wanting to take up residence in the Abyss.Viconia might,and maybe Jaheira.It's also possible that such relationships between mortals and de...

Mages in Drow society

Anyone curious about the way arcane magic seems to be viewed among the Drow?Talking to,say,one of the merchants in the Ust Natha bazaar,occasionally uses the audio dialogue "The path to supremacy for a male lies either in the bedchamber,or the books of the mages." Also,if,say Nalia or Imoen talk to ...

An angry deity (spoiler)

Just wondering if it was possible that amid dealing with other Bhaalspawn run amok,you could be subject to the occasional random attack by one or more Handmaidens of Lolth in T.O.B. Given that you did all the Ust Natha quests,by the end of Chapter 5 you would have done the following : a)killed a Pri...

Are you talking about the Boots of Etherealness?If so,you can find them in the Drow section of the Sahaugin City-Of-Caverns,but you'll need to play the game with the Imps first. As to what they do,they make the wearer ethereal once per day for 30 seconds,effectively granting immunity to normal weapo...

Regarding the romance choices for male PC's,I would probably go with Viconia,the reason being the protaganist,a Child of Bhaal,could identify being the object of fear and distrust,simply because of what he is.I found the Jaheira romance somewhat uncomfortable,seeing as it takes place so soon after K...

Is Viconia's alignment deserved?

Just wondering if anybody thinks that Neutral Evil isn't really a fitting alignment for Viconia.I know that your reputation drops if you accept her into the party,but that's only because she is a Drow Elf (no loss of reputation in the case of Edwin or Korgan).Any thoughts on this?
