Baldur's Gate Wiki

Handwritten Note (LUM2) is one just one of eight Lum machine notes found in Watcher's Keep in Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal and Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition.


This brief note is written in wild, looping, haphazard script. The words seem to be almost nonsensical babblings:

Tough guy? Tough guy? Lond red circle is tough guy now! -L. t. M.


This particular note is found on the Watcher's Keep Altar Level.

It details in an abbreviated manner a combination sequence that must be selected to initiate the "tough guy" result.

The machine will bestow a permanent effect that grants a point of Constitution to the character entering the combination - which is pulling the Long Lever, turning the Red Dial, and pressing the Circular Button. The player's info screen will display a text reading:

A feeling of health and vitality washes over you. This is followed by <CHARACTERNAME> gained 1 point of CONSTITUTION.

Note that repeating the same combination a second time (or more) will result in an unpredictable effect, such as being Imprisoned, permanently losing a point of Intelligence and perhaps being Petrified.
