Aerie, Jaheira, Anomen, and Viconia are infected with vampirism only if you've romanced them before going to the final fight with Bodhi.
Valygar's body appears if you kill him instead of taking him into your party, and can be used to open the planar sphere.

There are three choices:
You can keep your mortality
You can become an evil god
Or you can become a good god.

Well, lessee, Abazigal was only half dragon to start with, so his genetics are already screwed up. Now, if he mates with another non-blue dragon, the results will be anything but normal. Of course, the whole problem with Draco being Abazigal's son is that dragons take an incredibly long time to matu...

When I played Anomen didn't get knighted until level 15, leading me to believe that his test for knighthood is some kind of random.
So, if you've finished all possible quests, then you're kind of screwed as far as I'm concerned.

The 'exploding' effect is definitely linked to the slayer change. You'll notice that that effect occurs when you change into or from the slayer. I don't know why it keeps happening afterwards, but I believe it's a bug.

I've never heard that. Every time I've done the Twisted Rune (many, many times) I've always had the rogue stone in a gem bag.

That's patently ridiculous. I don't care what the monstrous manual says. It's just a lame attempt to link the D&D golems to the "real" golem anyway.

You don't -have- to pause. Some people just do that because they don't want to waste game time.

Cespenar. For all his being a ratfink, you've gotta admire Saemon's cleverness. Plus he has a normal voice and makes proper use of grammar and diction.
