Other interesting events[]




Note: When playing the original Baldur's Gate complete with its expansion Tales of the Sword Coast, all farmers go by the name Lahl instead, who actually is a specific farmer from the Isle of Balduran. This is not the case when playing the original game without its expansion or the Enhanced Edition.

Notable loot[]

Reputation trap[]

If you are in Nashkel and your reputation is lower than 4, you will be attacked by a Bounty Hunter. Depending on your reaction, you may be able to pay your way out of a fight.


  • The game files use – partially – a different spelling for the town's name: "Nashkell". This can, for example, be seen on the road signs between Beregost and Nashkel. The established name, however, uses only a single "l".[1] Interestingly the wrong spelling was carried over to the German translation of the game, although the town in German lore is spelled the same way as in English.
  • Several of the gravestones reference Bioware developers, including Chris Parker, Mark Darrah, Lukas Kristjanson, and Ray Muzyka. Feargus, whose gravestone reads "Is it done yet?" is likely a reference to Black Isle lead Feargus Urquhart.
