Chapter 1 to 3[]

Shadows Below the Friendly Arm Inn[]

Shades of the Sword Coast mod Friendly Arm basement screenshot

third basement level

  • At the Friendly Arm Inn, talk to innkeeper Bentley Mirrorshade and ask for work. He wants you to clean out the intruders that have forced their way into the catacombs undeneath the inn. Agree.
    From the tavern floor, take the hatch(800.200) in the kitchen down to:
  • Basement level 1 [1]:
    There are hostile dire rats here, and minor loot. Take the circular staircase(600.600) down to:
  • Basement level 2 [2]:
    More rats, carrion crawlers, and minor loot. Take the circular staircase(600.550) down to:
  • Basement level 3 [3]:
    You are immediately accosted by the evil fighter Leilo. There are two ways to deal with him:
    • CHOICE: Kill him.
      350 kill XP, and you get to loot his equipment.
    • CHOICE: Convince him to leave.
      If your protagonist has 15+ CHA, you can instead talk him into realizing that his boss considers him expendable. He leaves, and you get 400 XP (but not his items).
      Either way, take the circular staircase(480.450) down to:
  • Sanctuary [4]:
    Klarinn, a priest of Bhaal, immediately initiates dialog and mentions a lost unholy symbol. No matter what you say, he attacks you together with his wolf Apsu and a summoned skeleton warrior. Defeat him, and optionally loot his body and the nearby chest for treasure. Then exit the way you came[5].
  • Back on the tavern floor, talk to Bentley Mirrorshade again and explain what happened.
    (If you tell him that you looted his cloak from the catacombs, he lets you keep it. As for the lost symbol, he does not know where it is, either.)
    You receive 1000 gp, 1,200 XP, and +1 reputation.
  • ADDENDUM: When you later find the "Symbol of Bhaal"[6] during the quest "The Bone Collector" (see below), you can show it to Bentley – who tells you to get rid of it.

Circles of Interest[]

Shades of the Sword Coast mod purple portal cave screenshot

The purple portal's cave

  • At the Friendly Arm Inn, when you leave the main building for the first time, the scholar Mal'meto(3400.2600) approaches you.
    He wants you to retrieve four magic spheres that are accessible through invisible portals.
    He gives you a note with clues, and a ring[7].
  • You can only see and enter the portals while you're wearing the ring he gave you, so either wear it all the time or put it on in the right places. Each portal leads to a small pocket plane with a lootable container holding a magic sphere, that spawns some monsters when you loot it. You can loot the spheres in any order:
  • Bring the four spheres to Mal'meto in his house(3600.2800) in the Friendly Arm Inn courtyard. He wants to perform a ritual with them, once you are ready.
  • Tell Mal'meto you are ready, and he teleports your party and himself to the stone circles at Lion's Way. There, he performs the ritual, but it goes wrong and kills him. You get 6,000 XP, and the "Energy of Planar Shades"[12], a returning throwing weapon that does magic damage, jumps into your inventory.

Beetles, Dreams and an Old Man[]

  • ...

Amber Flower[]

The amber flower cutscene

  • In Beregost, talk to the halfling Otter O'Forest(2400.300) in the center-top part of the outdoors map. His buddy is sick, and the only medicine is a magic flower that can only be seen at night. Agree to help.
  • Travel to the Nashkel Mines outdoors map, and check the bare black tree in the top-right portion. At night[13], a flower(3950.650) can be seen growing underneath it. Click it, and a cutscene plays in which the flower "speaks" and allows you to take it.
  • Bring the flower back to Otter O'Forest in Beregost. You receive 750 XP and a magic quick-use item[14].

Snooping Around[]

  • OPTIONAL: Use the wardstone to snoop around.
    • While you have the wardstone in your inventory, a portal(100.200) is visible in the left part of the outer corridor in Thalantyr's tower.
      (If the golems in this corridor are harassing you, either talk to Thalantyr once to turn them neutral, or just avoid or kill them.)
    • Enter the portal to arrive in Thalantyr's bedchamber[16], where you can loot three chests for some low-level treasure.
    • Here you can also get the mini-quest "Bibliophilia" – see the next section.
    • Use the return portal to get back to Thalantyr's tower.
  • Regardless of whether or not you used it, you can give the wardstone to Thalantyr for 650 gp and 150 XP. (Note that after you do this, there is no way to access his bedchamber again.)


  • In High Hedge, the quest "Snooping Around" (see the previous section) gives you access to Thalantyr's bedchamber[17]. Click the bookshelf there, which responds by talking to you. It promises not to tell Thalantyr about your intrusion, and asks you to bring it the book History of Shadowdale XIII.
  • The book can be found in various locations in the game world. Once you have a copy, bring it to the talking bookshelf. You receive 550 XP and a magic quick-use item[18].

Ice and Ore[]

  • In Nashkel, talk to the gnome Kulul Huggerglitter who stands by the bridge near the top-left map corner. He wants to research the effects of magic cold on iron ore. Show an interest, and he asks you to find some magic ice for him.
  • On the island's outdoors map, loot the spiky rock(550.600) near the bottom for a piece of "Everice"[19]. Then complete Shandalar's quest to return to the Sword Coast region.

The Melting Man[]

  • In Nashkel, talk to the boy Brat(1100.300) who stands outdoors on the left side of the inn. He claims that he saw a melting man in a cave to the north.
  • Travel to the Area North of Nashkel, and enter the tiny cave(1600.3500) in the bottom-left portion. Inside[21] is Boohady Cream, who looks like a melted blob. Talk to him to learn that he was cursed by a Madame Potpourri.
    (Optionally express sympathy, to learn the extra clues that the Madame likes colors, sweets, and gambling.)
  • Travel to the Nashkel Carnival, and enter the left one of the two large gambling tents, to talk to Madame Potpourri. She admits that she cursed Mr. Cream because his name made her think of icecream. She carries a potion[22] for dispelling the curse.
    • CHOICE: Buy the potion from her for 300 gp.
    • CHOICE: Ask to buy it, but then claim you don't have that much money. She gives it to you for free just to get rid of you.
    • CHOICE: Kill her (15 XP, no reputation loss), and loot the potion off her body.
  • Bring the potion to Boohady Cream in his cave. He takes it but refuses to use it, because he likes being a blob now. You receive 650 XP and a magic shirt[23].

Into the Manhood / Into the Womanhood[]

  • In Nashkel, walk to the right of the garrison to see a cutscene of an embarassed child(3900.2070) being called stupid.
  • Talk to the child.
    If your protagonist is male, then it's a boy who asks you what it means to be a man.
    If your protagonist is female, then it's a girl who asks you what it means to be a woman.
    Regardless of how you respond, you receive 100 XP and the child leaves.

The gnoll stronghold shadow realm

  • Fight your way across the stronghold fortifications, to the left-most prison pit. Descend into that pit, and click the wall symbol(400.1400) there[25].
  • Your party arrives in a shadow realm[26] that looks like a small portion of the Gnoll Stronghold, but grey and sinister and with shadow monsters instead of gnolls. Explore this realm to find Sistriya's items:
    • Descend into the large central pit(900.1300), to find Sistriya's book[27]. (Other containers on this outdoors map contain optional minor loot.)
    • Enter the large crack(900.700) in the central castle wall, to arrive in a messhall[28] with some nice optional loot on the shelves.
    • Take the side-door(800.400) in the messhall to enter a small room[29] with stairs going further down to a small basement[30]. In this basement, loot the pile of rubble for one half of Sistriya's notes[31].
    • Back in the messhall, this time take the door(100.700) at the end of the hallway, to arrive at a purple cave[32]. Defeat the Shadow Master and his minions here, and loot the face(1200.600) on the ground for the second half of Sistriya's notes[33] and some nice optional loot.
    • Return to the shadow-realm outdoors map, climb the stairs to the upper level of the fortifications, and go around the tower. Enter the door(1200.500) here, to get to a small chapel room[34] where the hostile Shadow Prophet guards some nice optional loot.
    • To exit the shadow realm, click the wall symbol(400.1400) in the pit where you first arrived on the shadow-realm outdoors map.

  • Find the cave entrance(4150.900) in the top-right portion of the same map, and enter it[36]. As you approach the chest in here, it transforms into a "Firce Young Mimic" and attacks. Defeat it, and then loot it for the "Hairy Hand"[37] and some treasure[38].
  • Bring the hand to Tayn. He confirms that it belonged to his brother, and leaves. You receive 450 XP.

    • Return to Ormyrrs' Peak and place the teeth item in the "container" on the right ormyrr's mouth.
  • Once you've correctly placed all five items, the ormyrrs initiate dialog again, and reward you with 2,150 XP and a treasure location.
  • Return to the Mountain Cemetery map, and at the feet of the statue by the graves, loot the container(1280.160) that wasn't visible before for a magic robe[46] and other loot[47]

    On the third subterranean level, you encounter the kobold "Rovo, The Unlikely Hero"(2100.2600) on a lava bridge near the bottom map edge. He shouts something about "his new sword", and then attacks. Defeat him, and loot the katana "Juu-san"[50] from his body.
  • Talk to the crying woman on the outdooors map with the katana in your inventory. She wants you to keep it, and leaves. You receive 150 XP.

  • Once you have all four shards in your inventory, they automatically fuse into the "Unusual Shards"[52] item, and a quest journal entry pops up to call your attention to it.
  • Place the item into a party member's quick slot, and activate it. This frees a demon knight called "Kimrayor, The Shard-Shatterer", who thanks you by attacking you. Defeat him for 12,000 XP, 2000 gp, a magic sword[53]some magic loot, a magic ring[54], and minor loot.

    • Descend into the pit, to get to a strange room with a black tree. Talk to this "Tree of Shades"[61], to learn that it feeds on people's experience. This completes the quest.
  • You can now optionally feed memories to the tree, or return to do so later.
    For each memory, your protagonist loses 3% of his or her total experience points – in return, the tree summons a reward that you can then pick up from the tree trunk.
    The tree randomly chooses from the following memories. (For the quest ones, you have to successfully complete the corresponding quest first):

My Very Own Hideout[]

  • In the Area East of Beregost Temple ("Mutamin's Garden"), when you explore the Basilisk Caves (see the previous section), on the third cave level[77] loot the "Bizarre Hand"[78] from the locked chest(750.900) in a tiny room of the central structure.
  • Open the hand's item description in your inventory, and click the "Investigate" button. A dialog window opens, and presents a little puzzle that consists of activating the hand's fingers in the correct order.
    (There are no hints for this; you are meant to use trial-and-error until you get it right. The solution is: Index finger, little finger, thumb, middle finger, ring finger.)
    Once done correctly, the hand dissolves into dust, and the "Glowing Wardstone"[79] appears in your inventory.
  • Open the wardstone's item description in your inventory, click the "Investigate" button, and select the option to let the stone take you.
    Your party is teleported to a small pocket plane[80]
  • In the pocket plane, loot the tent for a note[81] from the hideout's previous owner. You get a journal entry and on-screen message confirming that you claimed this hideout.

    Show an interest in her sleeping troubles, and she tells you about a scary dog that comes and stares at her every night.

  • Walk to the bottom-left village exit (200.1300), to see the dog again.
    Each time you get close to the dog, it runs off again. Keep following it, until in the top-right portion of the map the dog disappears into a crack(4000.900) in the rock wall.

    To the left stands an undead guardian called "Tanar'ri Bones", who guards the sealed exit to the sanctuary. You have two options for passing it:
    • CHOICE: Violence.
      Walk to the left in your normal outfits. Once you come close to the "Tanar'ri Bones", it turns hostile and attacks you. This is a tough fight. Once you defeat it (18,000 kill XP), the map exit(50.150) in the top-left corner opens up.
    • CHOICE: Disguises.
      Make every member of your party wear[122] one of the robes[123] that were dropped by the cultists on the previous level. Then approach the "Tanar'ri Bones" – it identifies you as members of the cult, and opens up the map exit(50.150) in the top-left corner for you without a fight.
      Either way, take that exit to get to:
  • Dragon cult sanctuary [124]:
    The cult leader[125] initiates dialog, and attacks you together with the monstrosity of bones and flesh[126] he was building. Defeat them both, and then loot the room for the 16th holy symbol[120] and optionally some nice treasure.
    Make your way out the way you came; On the passage map, if you didn't kill the "Tanar'ri Bones" earlier, it drops dead now which grants you 9,000 XP.
  • Return to North Baldur's Gate, and report back to Jaryo Iklaja. He takes the 16 holy symbol[120], and you receive 3,250 gp and 4,100 XP.

  • Find the three "Child's Skeleton"[128] items in these catacombs:
    • One can be looted from the corpse pile(900.500) in the top-left room of the first level.
    • One can be looted from the cobwebs(900.1000) in the spider room of the first level.
    • One can be looted from the table(2900.2200) in the bottom-most side room of the second level.
  • Once you have all three child skeletons in your inventory, talk to the Skeletal Mother again. She leaves with them, and you receive 1,200 XP and a magic quick-use item[129].
