Baldur's Gate Wiki

The statue has come to life!

Zeke is a con artist who is found at the Nashkel Carnival standing between the melee weapons tent and the ranged weapons tent. He offers an overpriced Stone to Flesh Scroll that would free the nearby cleric Branwen, who was turned to stone by Tranzig.

Once you've bought the scroll from him he will leave.

You can also charm him and use his own scroll from his quick slot, use your own scroll to unpetrify Branwen, or you can pickpocket Zeke for the scroll.


Come one, come all! Take a look at the stone warrior maiden. How long has she been trapped in this petrified form, no one knows! Be the first to learn, for the mere price of 500 gold. For that small amount of money, I shall give you a magic scroll, and with this scroll you can release the maiden from her stone prison. Think of the gratitude she would feel to her saviors. Perhaps she's a princess from some far-off land, or maybe a powerful sorceress in search of a concubine. You can't afford not to know! Buy the scroll!

1-Sorry, we're not interested.
Your loss.
2-Sure, give us the scroll.
You won't regret this! Here's the scroll, and I wish you well. Bye now.
3-We don't have the money right now.
Well, if you ever get the money, I'll be here waiting.
