I'm not sure how well known this is but from what I've seen not too many people know of this-- if you pickpocket kangaxx right before he talks to you you can get a ring of gaax without a fight, and if you kill him then you then have 2 ring of gaax's!!

NPC mods

Quick question,
Is there a mod out there that you can dowload that has all or at least many of the mod-based NPC's in it all at once? Just wondering. Thanks for any help and I may have posted this somewhere else by mistake, but when i went back to check it for a reply it was gone (or I couldn't find it) so if it is in two places, I apologize.

Valygar, Keldorn, and Minsc will break away from the party to kill Edwin if he is present

That's false. I just now got done playing through Baldur's Gate 2: Shadows of Amn with the party consisting of me, aerie, valygar, minsc, edwin, and yoshimo (later replaced by imoen). all you have to do to get them to stop bickering is get the nether scr(WARNING:SPOILER!!!)...oll for edwin and when he finally says he can decipher it to become a lich, except not undead and much more powerful, tell him to do it and he'll turn into a chick. after awhile (filled with your party making respectable remarks, i think my most favorite was when minsc randomly said that boo was saying that he (boo) was wondering where edwin has gone and why theres a girl in his robes. or the one where just after he goes chick you can say "...oh, and nice rack." edwin actually agrees to this!) a red wizard (which is what edwin is supossively affiliated with) will show up and ask where edwin is. you say he isn't there. the red wizard leaves, then shows up again some time later and points towards edwin(a) and says its him and undos the curse. then edwin attacks him, and so on.

after all of this has taken place, the entire party will stop bickering at him except for the occasional valygar + edwin debate over edwin speaking, however they will never actually fight and minsc and edwin will never talk again. i've never had anomen in my party even when playing a female character just for the fact that he is a complete idiot about the ideas of neutralism and then (from what i've read) he turns neutral later on if certain conditions are met. complete haughty retardism and i'd kill him if it didn't mean that the whole copper coronet would start attacking me

Q. Which stronghold is the most fun?

A. Another good question.


Priests get to dig around thier respective Churches. The Temple of Helm will recruit you (Not depending on your alignment - it's always Helm) and send you down into the Sewers. Deal with the mess there, then go and find your respective church. From there on out you will recieve your jobs. Consult GameBanshee for more information.


Actually, if You play the subclass Priest of Lathander, Helm won't be the one recruiting You for the Cult of the Eyeless quest. Someone from the church of Lathander will (Dawnmaster Kreel? Or something, can't recall the name exactly...). I've only ever played Priest of Lathander, so I couldn't say what happens if you're a Priest of Talos but my guess is, some Talos priest will recruit You.

They didn't attack me when I killed him, any of the times! :D

A little correction. Fighter dualled to Mage can still get Fighter stronghold. I have the latest ToB patch installed.
