In Beregost, you may run into Firebead Elvenhair again. He's glad to see you well and mourns Gorion's death.

He is after a particular book, History of the Fateful Coin. You can purchase it for 3Goldpieces across the street in Feldepost's Inn.

Return to Firebead's home with the book and he will reimburse you and give you a new book and a scroll case.

Sometimes he doesn't give you the quest, but you can still complete it by talking to him with the correct book in your possession.  If he still doesn't give you the quest, talk to him with your character (Protagonist) if they are not the leader of your party.

In Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition he will also give you a scroll case, although possibly only if you have a high Reaction score.

Fateful quest

The book Elvenhair wants, available at Feldepost's Inn.

  • Quest Begins: 
    I have met an old friend in Beregost! Firebead Elvenhair, an elderly mage who visited the library at Candlekeep on occasion, has asked me to check out the stores in the area and purchase a copy of "The History of the Fateful Coin" for him, should I ever set eyes on it. Confining as its walls could be, there are days when I miss Candlekeep with every bone and every ounce of flesh in my body. This, I guess, is just going to be one of those days...
  • Quest Completed:
    Old Firebead was grateful for my locating his book and rewarded me.
