Recruitment[edit | edit source]

Voghiln is available from Chapter 9, he can be found at the far north-eastern section of the Troll Claw Woods alongside Jaheira (coordinates: x=3700, y=270). He will mistake you for a Crusader, but his Harper companion stops him before he can attack you. Jaheira then goes on to inform you about Khalid being trapped in the Bridgefort, which is under siege by Caelar's crusade. Even though he is traveling with Jaheira, the game doesn't require you to bring both of them along at the same time.

Additionally, he has the Skald Song at his disposal, which gives every party member in reach +2 to-hit, +2 dmg and +2 AC.

Biography[edit | edit source]

When asked about his past, Voghiln speaks at considerable length of his travels in the North. Originally from Luskan, Voghiln felt the call of adventure and set out on a journey to the Spine of the World. For the next few years, he traveled among the northernmost countries, including Vaasa and the Silver Marches, building up his repertoire and his reputation as a skald.
Near the story's end, Voghiln hastily glosses over a bit where he decided to travel south for a time. No amount of persuasion convinces him to reveal why he truly left the North. Instead, Voghiln said, he came north chasing new adventures and new "womans."
Despite his fondness for drink and his propensity for chasing skirts, Voghiln is a brave and talented companion who is eager to see the crusade come to an end—mostly so that he can write about it.

You have the pleasure of speaking with Mighty Voghiln, slayer of the Nightmare clan, pride of the Ten Towns!
Voghiln loves a good fight, and you seem to have enough of those. Ja! I will join you... once I finish my drink.
To travel with such a beautiful woman would please Voghiln greatly. First, a toast to you. Then we shall march against the crusade!

Dialogues[edit | edit source]

Augh, mine head! By the Oakfather's leafy arse, I've never met a woman who could drink like that! One minute I'm singing with an ale in one hand and a wench in the other, and then I wake up here... Where in the Nine Hells am I?
I do not know why we were brought here. I am thinking I was snatched for my fame in fighting, drinking, and my way with the ladies.
Ho ho, what have we here? Come raise a flagon with me! We'll drink till we die in the arena... or the bar. The bar is more likely for me.
Voghiln's the name. A fighter, drinker, and lover... though not necessarily in that order.
Good at fighting? You could say that. I killed a dozen tundra yeti barehanded! Barehanded! You've heard of tundra yeti, yes?
Twice as tall as a man and thrice as wide. Claws and fangs like daggers. Reminds me of me, now I think of it, except for the claws and fangs, of course.
I was escorting a caravan from the Ten Towns south to Luskan. We made camp for the night. I told them not to, but they didn't listen to Voghiln.
In the middle of the night, a pack of yetis attacked. In the chaos, I lost my axe. I had to rip one of their hairy arms off and use it to club the others to death.
The devils had killed the oxen and most of the guards. I had to pull the wagons to Luskan myself, fighting yetis and bandits the whole way!
Saying Voghiln knows a thing or two about women is like saying Elminster can cast a few spells! I know things about women they don't even know about themselves.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Voghiln is stereotypical Viking-type: He loves to drink, he loves to fight and loves to have beautiful women around him. Ideally all at once. All of that is crowned with an over-the-top Saxon accent. And let's not forget that he likes speaking of himself in third person. Underneath his rude behavior and his inability to be faithful however, lurks a funny and charming fellow who's got his heart in the right place.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Voghiln is one of the many characters in the Enhanced Editions, including the other two companions: Rasaad and Baeloth, who is voiced by Mark Meer.
