NPCs Edit

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 lootEdit

Reputation trapEdit

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

Trivia Edit

  • 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.
