I've heard some shit about romances between characters. What's up with that?
I admit I'm not that far along in the game yet, only lvl9 fighter (dwarf) but all I experienced bout characters getting something with each other is between Minsc and Aerie, where she becomes his bitch, (or is that witch?)
Is this becouse I'm not yet htat far in the game, or is it because I'm a dwarf, and thus not a very charismatic character.

I guess that's because you're a dwarf ... but I don't see why that should be a problem, as somewhere in the game, a human female marries a gnome.

For your info: the romances for MALE characters can be had with Jaheira, Viconia or Aerie. If you turn Aerie down and you have Minsc along, Minsc will try to get her to be his Witch. Since this already happened with you ... it seems the romance has skipped.

For FEMALES, only Anomen is available as a possible lover.

This is for anyone who can answer this, umm i've never seen a human female marry a gnome in the game. When does this happen? I assume it between npcs? ta

It occurs outside the Order of the Radiant Heart-the female is the guarding paladin and the male is the gnome which helps Garrick (ala Cyrano)

Unfortunately, dwarves are the only race in BG2 that got screwed, or rather doesn't get a romance. Bioware somehow overlooked it.

Also, the Minsc Aerie witch thing isn't a romance between them, simply a character interaction. Nothing more of it comes in the game, except that Minsc will beserk when Aerie gets close to dieing.

Okay, how do you further the Cyrano de Bergerac parody with Garrack and the gnome? It cracked me up when I first saw it, and I've seen a little more of it, but do you have to show up in front of the Oredr of the Most Radiant Heart at dusk (which seems to be the only time they're there) and just do that daily to see the outcome? Any thoughts?

One more thing: Tulkas- there are tons of other posts along the board about the various romances, most cover various aspects and they all aren't located in one specific post (Buck, you listening?) so search through them all and see if they help you out.

It depends ... I think it is some sort of random encounter. Sometimes I have them twice in a row (at night), and then a few days without ... just visit there, whenever you're in the Temple District. I've also seen them during the day, by the way.

After half a dozen such instances (be sure to talk to all four there: the Lady Irlana (?), the male Knight next to her, Garrick and the gnome (forgot his name)), it will be concluded, with the Lady having married the gnome.

Both -- until they force you to choose.

Yep ! The samething goes for Aerie & Viconia, Jaheira & Aerie ..........
Not a real fan of Aerie myself....but why can't i romance both Jaheria & Viconia ? Do i sound too greedy ? Image

They can only kill me with golden bullet !

Personally, I like the Aerie romance, just because I haven't yet found Viconia in this game, and Jahiera gets on my nerves too much.
Plus Aerie's an elf, and elves are just plain cool.
She can still be Minsc's witch, and since I love having Minsc around, it all works out.

Just expressing my opinion.....

Yeh, I'm a fan of Aerie as well, and not just because she has the nicest looking portrait(!). Jaheira and Viconia get on my nerves...
It's a shame there's only one option for a female character, and it's even more of a shame that that option happens to be that arrogant idiot Anomen.
I think romances and other party interactions add a lot more to the game... something else to do when you're wandering about the streets of Athkatla or spying on the Mind Flayers of the Underdark.

I was extremely dissappointed when playing this game a second time with a female character that my only viable choice was anomen. The others in the last game were fun, but I eventually lost anomen after he went on a rampage and killed Saerk against my wishes.

And as another side note I also felt that there needed to be some same-sex possibilities. I couldn't even get either character laid by a prostitute of the same sex (I had over 100,000 gold)! The scripting for that wouldn't even take more than a minute to code and it would offer all players the opportunity to play their characters the way they wanted.

The idea was fun but next time it needs to be more developed.
