Baldur's Gate Wiki

Handwritten Note (LUM8) is the last 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:

Smarty, smarty. You long circle the blue! -Lum the Mad


This particular note is found on the Watcher's Keep Machine of Lum the Mad.

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

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

You feel a tingling at the base of your brain, which quickly spreads throughout your entire skull. This is followed by <CHARACTERNAME> gained 1 point of INTELLIGENCE.

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.
