Telamon's companions through an EET campaign

  • 1 Overview
  • 2 BG1:EE
    • 2.1 Prologue
    • 2.2 Chapter One
    • 2.3 Chapter Two
    • 2.4 Chapter Three
    • 2.5 Chapter Four
    • 2.6 Chapter Five

I've rolled a Chaotic Good Elf F/M/T named Telamon. I've started an EET game for the first time, with the addition of two more mods, "The Gorgon's Eye" and "3.5 Edition Weapon Style Rebalance", and I'm playing on core rules with max hit points on level up.

For a bit of extra difficulty, I have the "auto-pause on enemy sighted" turned off. I'm also trying to avoid reloading much — I haven't reloaded so far for any of my companion's deaths for example. But when Telamon died (once so far) I reloaded, and I've also reloaded some of the fights that I played while half-asleep and went pretty bad, and on some failed pickpocketing attempts, that kin…

How a Bard used a couple of potions to upgrade himself and the whole party

BG:EE Chapter Five (inside Baldur's Gate).

  • 1 The beginning
  • 2 Another consideration
  • 3 Final stop
  • 4 More can be done
  • 5 TL/DR
  • 6 Note
  • 7 Trivia

Garrick drank a Potion of Mind Focusing in order to have a better chance of learning some spells. He had just leveled up but had no level 3 spells to memorize. Imoen had a few such scrolls in her case, but our party also visited Sorcerous Sundries to buy some more. Imoen took the party leader's position and used a scroll of Friends before starting to barter. We also bought some more stuff we wanted while we were there, including a couple of wands. Garrick managed to learn Fireball, Skull Trap, and Vampiric Touch from level 3 spells, but also level 2 Invisibility and Knock, and level 4 Greater Malison and Minor Globe o…

BG2ee - A battle at the Guarded Compound - with screenshots, without cheese

  • 1 Intro
  • 2 Ground floor
  • 3 Second floor
  • 4 Conclusion

My party consists of me (Chaotic Neutral male Elf FMT lvl 9/10/11), Minsc (lvl 11), Jaheira (lvl 9/12), Aerie (lvl 10/11), Keldorn (lvl 11), and Haer'Dalis (lvl 14). We are at SoA chapter 3 and we haven't been outside of Athkatla yet. Me and my party had entered the Guarded Compound previously, but after seeing how capable the enemies are there, I decided to reload and come back later.

After much time had passed, gaining more experince and better gear in the meantime, I was doing the "Cult of the Eyeless" questline with a somewhat different party, and I had in mind that after finishing it I wanted to go during night time to the Docks, in order to do the 1st task of Aran Linvail for the Shadow Thi…

Skipping the Irenicus intro cutscene in a new game in original edition

It's often useful to start a new game when testing the original edition of BG2, but there is no way to skip the incredibly long cutscene. The following instructions lets you modify a single file, AR0602.BCS, to skip the entire damn thing. The newly created character will receive 3 points of damage instantly, their cell will open and Imoen will be teleported nearby, added to the team with both her intro and post-rest dialogues skipped. The game will not be saved automatically.

The character's starting gold and inventory will not be removed. Certain unique items are to be found again later in the game so you'll have two copies, but this was only made for testing purposes with wiki editing in mind so it's fine. I made it on BG2ToB 2.5.26498.

Editor Tips & Tricks

Just a few things I've picked up along the way. Hopefully they may help other editors in creating a new page, or editing an existing page

  • 1 Snippets
  • 2 Finding Help
  • 3 Lookup before Create
  • 4 Preview before Save

I find it convenient to have various Text files with Code Snippets for fast/easy use.

One file is just an "Editing Notes" file, with a lot of useful Templates and Pre-Formatted text that are used frequently. For example, Game Icons & their Help pages, put them inside squigglies two left "{" and two right "}":

  • Template:BG - Classic BG -

Other snippet/text files are for InfoBoxes (one to a file). Each file is essentially an Empty InfoBox for quick Copy/Paste (either the entire template for a new page, or just the fields that are missing from existi…

Editor Mentorship

What follows is simply my Opinion which you may either Leave or Take (opinions being what they are, now-a-daze: 1-in-7,000,000,000+ and Counting), but this has been my experience to-date with editing the Baldur's Gate Fandom Wiki.

It includes what I believe to be some good advice for anyone else who follows in the, or blazes their own, path as a BG Wiki Contributor, whether it's for the Original BG1, TotSC, BG2SoA, BG2ToB, or (myself, having never played...) TBP, SoD, TBP2:GoT, or EE games.

Too few of the original Creators/Editors of the Baldur's Gate Fandom Wiki are around now to provide useful Tips/Tricks, and in short, Mentorship to fast-track you into the superb editors that we could now use to complete the BG Fandom Wiki's. Of course, …

Black Pits II Solo Sorcerer Walkthrough

Playing Black Pits II several times made me realize that there is no easy walkthrough for solo Sorcerers in Legacy of Bhaal, which is probably easier then insane because of the saving throws bug, now that I think of it. I will play each battle several times and try to find the easiest way to beat that battle.

The spells in the tables below are sorted in selection order meaning the top ones should be selected before the lower ones in the list.

It does not matter how the creature dies since there is no loot. So Chromatic Orb and imprisonment will be your best killer spells to use in most of the hard fights. You can fight creature to level up between fights in the training area (TA) with Greater Wyvern (GW) being the most rewarding. Here you wi…

Adding missing images

I am using Near Infinity to get the missing images in the wiki but there is so much inconsistency which makes the search for already existing images hard. Am I searching the files wrong? What would be the best way? I usually try first with the file name from near infinity export and then with the item name. Sometimes when the name is identical I get a warning which is nice but not enough. Additionally Near Infinity or the infinity engine separates the tiles which contain water in a weird way which is very hard to combine in Paint. Does anyone know how to extract the maps already together? Or a good way to put them together?

Currently Soloing BG2:EE as F/M/T

I'm currently trying a solo run as an F/M/T.  I read how these characters suffer from slow level progression (since the XP is divided over 3 classes) so I wondered if a solo run would help compensate.  My conclusion is that IT DOES.  I am using lots of "cheese" techniques (Fog of War, Simulacrum, and Meta Trapping) but I was able to finish Watcher's Keep before heading off to Spellhold! I've just reached Amkethran and am curious to see how Abazigal's Lair will go.

OK, just killed Draconis.  The approach that worked for me was to lay several Spike Traps a good distance from the encounter (so they wouldn't be triggered by the Invisible Stalkers he initially conjures). I had a Clone lay them for me and then had the clone cast a protection from…

Campaign Settings

An old post to my Talk page had a user commenting on just how I "knew" the Solamnic Knights and the Cannibal Halflings in Lavok's Sphere were from other settings. They brought up a good point about how other fans without a comparable experience with or understanding of the AD&D multiverse might find such articles confusing.

I have no idea how to address this problem. I have no idea where to even begin making a page or a category to try and explain the Campaign Settings of AD&D and the complex multiverse they co-inhabit within the confines of the game. But I figured I could at least make a blog post to provide some basic understanding of this multiverse.

TSR promoted three major campaign settings as the "core" of Dungeons & Dragons; the Forgot…

Level Squatting

I used to do level squatting in classic BG when I want to get late game NPC like Alora, Coran, Skie, or Yeslick. The game tends to mess their HP/skill/weapon proficiency when I get them in higher level.

In BG:EE, the NPC's starting level are not determined by your party average level, but they get bonus XP based on your (or party?) XP. The bonus XP is capped at 32000 so I can level up them quickly. The level squatting is still useful if I want to get some NPC with dual-class option like Shar-Teel. But she's easy to find, available in chapter 1 and can dual at level 6 or 7 before changing into Thief class.

Alignments, my "raw models"

Based on superhero movies and animated series:

  • 3 Chaotic Good
  • 4 Lawful Neutral
  • 5 True Neutral
  • 6 Chaotic Neutral
  • 7 Lawful Evil

  • Batman - the "struggling LG". He follows a firm set of principles during his vigilante work (no martial weapons, no killing, etc.) and wants to bring law and order to Gotham. However it often backfires due to corrupt legal system, poor security (especially in Archam) or Harvey Dent going insane. So batman often questions whether being lawful (sticking to his own rules) promotes good (ridding the streets from crime) in Gotham.
  • Captain America - definitely a lighter version of the LG stereotype. These guy has been serving as the natural leader of good aligned parties, works well …

Pray for me

I have been rereading the Baldur's Gate novelization and taking DETAILED notes for the purpose of adding an actual comprehensive plot summary to its wiki page in place of the stub that's there now. 

I am currently halfway through the book, and though I do not hate it quite the way many members of the fandom do, actually reading it and SERIOUSLY THINKING ABOUT IT for note-taking purposes is tiring me out and taking its toll. 

Pray for me. Pray for my sanity. I WILL accomplish this. I have to. Otherwise, someone else will suffer in my place.

i dont know if any one will ever read this, but this wiki got me through, some times it pulled me along and some times i desired to create new content.

TOB progress!

Good morning every one!

I am currently churning through TOB, right now in Sendai's enclave.

last blog post was over a year ago, since then i have beaten SOA, and finished most of The Pre Seq.

as when ever i play i will constantly reference the Wiki, as proof to the genesis of new pages in the Wiki.

Sorry for their lack of content, i know it would be better to make one great page then a score of lesser pages, but the better Wiki Folk then me must pick up where i leave off.

once i finish TOB, i will reset all my programs (the mods seem to get in the way) and finish TPS. then i will be working on the side content.

Hope all are having a wonderful Saturday, quick break before i go back to the game!

Companion pages Reorganization, "done"; Infobox Overhaul, "done"

Companion pages finally feel neat & organized, takes a lot of time & work reading, structuring, adding info (especially the SoD part), but worth it, should be set as models for future references to let editors know where to add which info on these pages.

All current Infoboxes Overhaul complete, before they are informative, but a bit messy, now every piece of info is where it should be, adding lots of missing sections too.


  1. Adding quotes, dialogues
  2. Adding voices to quotes dialogues
  3. Adding new pages, specially SoD info
  4. Randomly create/upgrade other pages, like Speed Factor, World Map, etc

Installing Sword Coast Stratagems (SCS) on EE

As of the current version of EE (v.23673) and SCS (v.30), you need to use Big World Fixpack to make them work together, you must apply the fixes before installing SCS, so do for all other mods that need fixes.

Dsurian's Character Creation

This is merely a write-up/walk-through for how I generally approach Baldur's Gate 1. It's primarily for my own recollection, but if others wish to use and review it, they're certainly more than welcome to. To best describe my play-style, I always like to play core rules, but admittedly hate the few negative side effects that come with it (no auto-writing scrolls, no auto-max-health levels, etc.), while I certainly won't be "cheating" by using console commands or anything, I'll likely take the time to plan and act out the most advantageous approach.

  • 1 Creation
    • 1.1 Stats
  • 2 Prologue
  • 3 Chapters 1-2
    • 3.1 Mutamin's Garden
    • 3.2 Imoen
  • 4 Chapters 3-4

I practically always go with a Human Warrior (Fighter or Ranger), generally without any specialty kits as I ca…

Of admins and Core Rules.

This entry will be edited as time goes:

Core Rules:  I had originally posted this in one of the talkback comments, but an admin whose suffix/title rhymes with the one Zhar and Xzar use, took umbrage with some of my posts.  Since admins wield sticks of power and this fellow is a self admitted mage player, we'll presume he's not to be trifled with unless within crossbow or grappling range.  :)

Anyways, here goes.

Coincidentally, and this may be the wrong place to post this, but I noticed "Core Rules" excludes a big one, which still shocks me that it wasn't FIXED by now, not even for the Enhanced Edition.  People insta-die the moment hps reach 0.  You'd think with "Core Rules" as a setting, people would spend the next 10 rounds bleeding to death…

To finish these games for once!

Hello all!

I started playing BG1 when it was first released in (if my memory serves me right) the PC Gamers Demo CD pack (for the younger readers in the audience, this magazine came with the latest Demo for games) and I was smitten, being that I was rather young and some times rather "john come lately" I thought that 18/99 was the highest and 18/00 was the lowest.... yeah, just imagine how many times I passed over 18/00....

anyway, I eventually (the second time with out Gate Keeper) beat BG 1, however life always got in the way of me beating BG2, and now I am replaying BG1:EE, with intent to play all the way through.

I play catch as catch can, but would enjoy fellowship in either an audience or other people to play with.

Help Korgan recover the Book of Kaza.

I have joined with Korgan Bloodaxe to gain the Book of Kaza for a collector by the name of Pimlico. It is apparently in a tomb beneath the Grave District.  One of the crypts apparently leads to a lower, older section rumored to contain undead...but also the tome.

It appears that the Book of Kaza was taken from the tomb by former companions of Korgan's.  We must go to Pimlico's house in the Temple District to see if we can head them off and recover the book.

It appears that Korgan's former friends weren't satisfied with whatever reward Pimlico was offering. They killed the collector and, according to Korgan, will likely be drinking their gains on the roof of the Copper Coronet.  Korgan wishes to go pay his…

Returning to the game

Just recently started BG 1 again - original release, im not cool enough to own the EE quite yet - and am thinking of making some changes to the way i used to play...

Mainly party choices... I usually keep with the staple team: Imoen, Khalid, Jaheira, Minsc, Dynaheir... I think this time through, I may start swapping out some of the "cannon" members for some of the other NPCs.. I dont think it will interfere with continuity between BG 1 and 2, seeing as how Imoen, Jaheira and Minsc can have an explanation as to why they were around Baldur's Gate when captured by Irenicus; they dont need to be directly involved in my BG 1 exploits...

Where I think I will keep Imoen around just cause of the storyline spanning both games, I kinda feel the rest a…

Among the first things I did here was to Americanize spelling (eg. Armor instead of Armour), even though it pained my Canadian heart to do so (not really), because that's the way things are spelled in all DnD documentation and publications.

Lately, I've added Internationalization to the list of things I do now and then. That's a big word for basically two simple things:

  • European 1st floor = American 2nd floor. Americans count the floors of a building from the ground up, while Europeans count starting from the floor above the ground floor. In an effort to provide a neutral description that will confuse neither group, I've begun replacing "1st floor" with phrases such as "top floor" or "middle floor."

[Edit: This section has been made moot, sort of, by someone's addition of the category "Unmarked quests." I had almost, finally, decided on the category "Encounters" which fits a larger proportion of these non- and semi-quest articles, but... que sera, sera, as Doris Day said.]

I'm about done (overdone?) with the Prologue now, except that there are a number of quest-like incidents that I can't quite decide what to do with:

Too much?

I've recently begun doing some rather major expansions to wikia entries for the Prologue stage of tBaldur's Gate. Before I get too, too carried away, I'd appreciate some feedback from other editors, and from any users that may find their way here, too. 

I used to tease my father that his motto was: "If a job is worth doing, it's worth overdoing." Am I turning into my father?

Prime examples of possibly overdone entries include Gatewarden, where I may have gone overboard with the dialogue, and Cat, which is brief but entirely unnecessary. (Which is why i love it! I'll admit that I have a tendency to get silly, imagining that it balances somehow with my tendency to get pedantic.)

Quests of Unfinished Business, Round 3

Two more Unfinished Business quests have revealed themselves to me; one a modification of an older quest, as was the case with Neb, the other totally new.

In vanilla Baldur's Gate II, this mad spider-loving woman attacks the player on sight. In Unfinished Business, a diplomatic party can pass her by in peace - indeed, if they're polite, Pai'na offers them a job.

Pai'na is a half-drow druid of the Hive Master kit, which means she focuses her attention on protecting insects - specifically, giant spiders. As a result, she's very upset that the government has a pair of lunkheaded exterminators running around willy-nilly killing spiders off in the sewers under the Temple District. She can't confront them directly because they have in their posses…

Quests of Unfinished Business, Round 2

Welp, time for the second entry in what I hope will be a series about the new quests added to Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn by installing the mod "Unfinished Business". As long as the admins don't object, and I keep finding them, I'll keep doing them.

To trigger this quest, one must have Unfinished Business installed, have Minsc in the party, and leave the Docks district in Athkatla. Other requirements are unknown at this point.

Upon arriving in the new area, Minsc will have a sudden freak out as he discovers that Boo has gone missing. If Gorion's Ward does not react in too harsh a manner (which will cause Minsc to leave the game permanently), Minsc will plead to be taken back to the Docks, which is where he last saw Boo.

Baldur's Gate and 4e

As much as I love the story of Baldur's Gate, I cannot deny that I have always found the 2e ruleset that it operated under to be clunky and awkward - do not get me started on dual-classing vs. multi-classing, or racial class restrictions.
