1. You can count on gaining 15000 gp after completing the de'Arnise Keep. Therefore, do not feel confined by the Galean's request. 2. I suppose you have Nalia in your party alerady (you are in CC - and Nalia will actively search for you there). Thus, you must go in the de'Arnise Keep now (otherwise,...

Buck, I think the rules you have posted are good thing. In fact, the rules are a few sentences about the normal behaviour of a normal person. I do not see any confinements as far as the normal behaviour is concerned. On the other hand, they form a simple legal basis for removing everybody who mistak...

I don't think it is possible even if we allow the "save - quit - go to bed/eat something - load - continue" cycle. Too many events in the game depend on pure luck (your luck). Killing dragons, not being killed by different "death" spells, not being imprisoned by beholders and many other things.

Some possibilities: 1. Have you used any area effect spells during fighting Galvena? Did Claire get hit or affected by a spell during the fight? 2. Have you talked with the girl which was forced to be a prostitute (sorry, I cannot remember her name right now) first? No matter what happened, you are ...

1. The Spell Trap cannot save you. It absorbs 30 spell levels and Imprisonment is level 9 spell. Therefore, Spell Trap absorbs 4 Imprisonments, is it enough? 2. Time Stop, Soul Reaver, Black Blade of Disaster... No offense, WitchTooth, but we want the Ring of Gaxx as soon as possible, i.e., before l...

@Cheats: Then do not worry about your new alignment. It does not matter as far as BG2 is concerned. After a few minutes the game is over. Well, if you planned to import a LG mage from BG2 to ToB then you have to restart from somewhere where you were LG.

You MUST go through the City Gates area whenever you want to visit a NEW "town" on your map. To avoid later frustration, note this example: 1. You want to go to Windspear Hills (you haven't been there before) from Akathla - go to city gates and leave for Windspear Hills. 2. Now you are in Windspear ...

1. A fallen (i.e., evil) Paladin or Ranger loses his special abilities and becomes, in fact, a fighter. 2. It does not matter much whether you end as good or evil - as far as you do not want to save your character(s) for ToB. The end of the game is at hand and it is unessential whether you service I...

Yes. Do not forget not to have the real Illithium in your inventory when you go to Sarles with the alloy. Otherwise, Sarles will ignore the alloy and take the Illithium - rrraughhh! Store the Illithium at a safe place or upgrage the mace first.

You can import characters from character files, not from games (I think). You can start your Final Save game (in single player, you do not need to copy), export the character, quit the game, and then import the character into your multiplayer session. Note: among your character files should be the f...

No. If you haven't taken Jaheira out of Irenicus' Dungeon, she is lost forever. It does not matter whether you released her or left her in her cage. On the other hand, you can fire her immediately after leaving the dungeon. You'll find her near the Galvarey's Estate. Note: Minsc is able to leave the...

If you want a constant spawn, here is a tip: the lower floor of the Sewers. You will find a "screaming statue" with a trapped treasure there. Everytime you click the statue (not the treasure) with the '?' mouse cursor, several sword spiders and a Wandering Horror will be spawn. Indefinitely. Do not ...

I recommend to count on 30 days since Valen talked to you. 2. Renald Bloodscalp quest (the Mae'...

A note about the main character: Do not forget that you lose 1 point of STR, DEX, WIS or INT (only 1 point) in the middle of the game and 1 point of DEX in the end of the game. It's irritating. Plan accordingly when generating the character.

1. The warhammer found in the keep works as +4 vs. Ogres, Ettins, and so on. It works as +1 (i.e., does not work) against golems. 2. The best way of dealing with Iron and Adamantine golems hanging in a passage (door, etc.) is Tansheron's Bow and/or Sling of Everard. The bow is a real +3 weapon, the ...

Another tip: some guy on the lower floor of Galwarey Estate should have Mordekainen Sword spell scroll.
