the only content left to play the SOD, which i almost finished if not for the program having an identity crisis towards the end.
i dont know if any one will ever read this, but this wiki got me through, some times it pulled me along and some times i desired to create new content.
Once SOD content is done i will likely cease to contribute to the wiki any more, but till that time expect more crap tastic intial pages from me!

Good morning every one!
I am currently churning through TOB, right now in Sendai's enclave.
last blog post was over a year ago, since then i have beaten SOA, and finished most of The Pre Seq.
as when ever i play i will constantly reference the Wiki, as proof to the genesis of new pages in the Wiki.
Sorry for their lack of content, i know it would be better to make one great page then a score of lesser pages, but the better Wiki Folk then me must pick up where i leave off.
once i finish TOB, i will reset all my programs (the mods seem to get in the way) and finish TPS. then i will be working on the side content.
Hope all are having a wonderful Saturday, quick break before i go back to the game!

Companion pages finally feel neat & organized, takes a lot of time & work reading, structuring, adding info (especially the SoD part), but worth it, should be set as models for future references to let editors know where to add which info on these pages.
All current Infoboxes Overhaul complete, before they are informative, but a bit messy, now every piece of info is where it should be, adding lots of missing sections too.
- Adding quotes, dialogues
- Adding voices to quotes dialogues
- Adding new pages, specially SoD info
- Randomly create/upgrade other pages, like Speed Factor, World Map, etc

- The main feature of the upcoming EE patch v2.4 is to (finallly) expand SoD to tablets platforms, it will fix some bugs as well but don't count on new features - there'll be few. Version 2.4 is likely to be the final offical patch for the EE versions of games.
- A new verision (v31) of the all-popular SCS is being developed by DavidW, release date is unknown. Islandking (talk) 08:59, May 18, 2017 (UTC)
As of the current version of EE (v.23673) and SCS (v.30), you need to use Big World Fixpack to make them work together, you must apply the fixes before installing SCS, so do for all other mods that need fixes.
I'd just use Big world Setup to save all the trouble, an excelent mod managing tool, try it you'll see. Islandking (talk) 07:57, May 18, 2017 (UTC)Read more >
This is merely a write-up/walk-through for how I generally approach Baldur's Gate 1. It's primarily for my own recollection, but if others wish to use and review it, they're certainly more than welcome to. To best describe my play-style, I always like to play core rules, but admittedly hate the few negative side effects that come with it (no auto-writing scrolls, no auto-max-health levels, etc.) ...so, while I certainly won't be "cheating" by using console commands or anything, I'll likely take the time to plan and act out the most advantageous approach.
I practically always go with a Human Warrior (Fighter or Ranger), generally without any specialty kits as I can never get over how extreme the disadvantages seem, but I do like to consider …

Viconia is a dark elf you encounter in Peldvale being hunted by a flaming fist guard. She will ask for your help in the flight. When the flaming fist guard speaks to you he will say that he will kill Viconia inmmediately, for she has supposedly commited a crime (which should be murder). What will you do? Kill Viconia believing without question to the guard, who is a representative of law-enforcement, or help her to give her a chance?Read more >

This entry will be edited as time goes:
Core Rules: I had originally posted this in one of the talkback comments, but an admin whose suffix/title rhymes with the one Zhar and Xzar use, took umbrage with some of my posts. Since admins wield sticks of power and this fellow is a self admitted mage player, we'll presume he's not to be trifled with unless within crossbow or grappling range. :)
Anyways, here goes.
Coincidentally, and this may be the wrong place to post this, but I noticed "Core Rules" excludes a big one, which still shocks me that it wasn't FIXED by now, not even for the Enhanced Edition. People insta-die the moment hps reach 0. You'd think with "Core Rules" as a setting, people would spend the next 10 rounds bleeding to death…Read more >
I started playing BG1 when it was first released in (if my memory serves me right) the PC Gamers Demo CD pack (for the younger readers in the audience, this magazine came with the latest Demo for games) and I was smitten, being that I was rather young and some times rather "john come lately" I thought that 18/99 was the highest and 18/00 was the lowest.... yeah, just imagine how many times I passed over 18/00....
anyway, I eventually (the second time with out Gate Keeper) beat BG 1, however life always got in the way of me beating BG2, and now I am replaying BG1:EE, with intent to play all the way through.
I play catch as catch can, but would enjoy fellowship in either an audience or other people to play with.
Currently I am running…

Note that this is for BG and BGII only because I don't have the Enhanced Edition. This is mostly for me to keep track of what articles need to be added still, but if anyone else wants to use it, feel free. Post a comment if you see anything I missed or have a suggestion. I will remove links as they become articles. More will be added soon!

Help Korgan recover the Book of Kaza.
I have joined with Korgan Bloodaxe to gain the Book of Kaza for a collector by the name of Pimlico. It is apparently in a tomb beneath the Grave District. One of the crypts apparently leads to a lower, older section rumored to contain undead...but also the tome.
It appears that the Book of Kaza was taken from the tomb by former companions of Korgan's. We must go to Pimlico's house in the Temple District to see if we can head them off and recover the book.
It appears that Korgan's former friends weren't satisfied with whatever reward Pimlico was offering. They killed the collector and, according to Korgan, will likely be drinking their gains on the roof of the Copper Coronet. Korgan wishes to go pay his…

Just recently started BG 1 again - original release, im not cool enough to own the EE quite yet - and am thinking of making some changes to the way i used to play...
Mainly party choices... I usually keep with the staple team: Imoen, Khalid, Jaheira, Minsc, Dynaheir... I think this time through, I may start swapping out some of the "cannon" members for some of the other NPCs.. I dont think it will interfere with continuity between BG 1 and 2, seeing as how Imoen, Jaheira and Minsc can have an explanation as to why they were around Baldur's Gate when captured by Irenicus; they dont need to be directly involved in my BG 1 exploits...
Where I think I will keep Imoen around just cause of the storyline spanning both games, I kinda feel the rest a…Read more >
Among the first things I did here was to Americanize spelling (eg. Armor instead of Armour), even though it pained my Canadian heart to do so (not really), because that's the way things are spelled in all DnD documentation and publications.
Lately, I've added Internationalization to the list of things I do now and then. That's a big word for basically two simple things:
- European 1st floor = American 2nd floor. Americans count the floors of a building from the ground up, while Europeans count starting from the floor above the ground floor. In an effort to provide a neutral description that will confuse neither group, I've begun replacing "1st floor" with phrases such as "top floor" or "middle floor."
- Decimals. American 1.5 = European 1,5. Whil…
I'm now on the fifth restart of this, my third third install/session of Baldur's Gate, following major experiments with the effects of 19 Charisma and 19 Dexterity on quests and gameplay, major explorations and re-explorations of game areas to establish "Transitions" reasonably definitively, acquiring and re-acquiring quests, completing and re-completing quests, etc. etc.
You might say I've been a touch obsessive. You might be right.Read more >
- [Edit: This section has been made moot, sort of, by someone's addition of the category "Unmarked quests." I had almost, finally, decided on the category "Encounters" which fits a larger proportion of these non- and semi-quest articles, but... que sera, sera, as Doris Day said.]
I'm about done (overdone?) with the Prologue now, except that there are a number of quest-like incidents that I can't quite decide what to do with:
- Scamming the Nobles
- Assassins: Shank & Carbos
- Fuller’s Dagger
- Jondalar’s Training
- Gatewarden’s / Obe's Training
- A Potion from the Clinic
They're not exactly quests, although Obe's Training already has an article in which it is presented as a quest. They are, however, significant encounters, some of which advance knowledge of the…Read more >
I've recently begun doing some rather major expansions to wikia entries for the Prologue stage of tBaldur's Gate. Before I get too, too carried away, I'd appreciate some feedback from other editors, and from any users that may find their way here, too.
I used to tease my father that his motto was: "If a job is worth doing, it's worth overdoing." Am I turning into my father?
Prime examples of possibly overdone entries include Gatewarden, where I may have gone overboard with the dialogue, and Cat, which is brief but entirely unnecessary. (Which is why i love it! I'll admit that I have a tendency to get silly, imagining that it balances somehow with my tendency to get pedantic.)

Two more Unfinished Business quests have revealed themselves to me; one a modification of an older quest, as was the case with Neb, the other totally new.
In vanilla Baldur's Gate II, this mad spider-loving woman attacks the player on sight. In Unfinished Business, a diplomatic party can pass her by in peace - indeed, if they're polite, Pai'na offers them a job.
Pai'na is a half-drow druid of the Hive Master kit, which means she focuses her attention on protecting insects - specifically, giant spiders. As a result, she's very upset that the government has a pair of lunkheaded exterminators running around willy-nilly killing spiders off in the sewers under the Temple District. She can't confront them directly because they have in their posses…

Welp, time for the second entry in what I hope will be a series about the new quests added to Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn by installing the mod "Unfinished Business". As long as the admins don't object, and I keep finding them, I'll keep doing them.
To trigger this quest, one must have Unfinished Business installed, have Minsc in the party, and leave the Docks district in Athkatla. Other requirements are unknown at this point.
Upon arriving in the new area, Minsc will have a sudden freak out as he discovers that Boo has gone missing. If Gorion's Ward does not react in too harsh a manner (which will cause Minsc to leave the game permanently), Minsc will plead to be taken back to the Docks, which is where he last saw Boo.
Since the loss of…

As much as I love the story of Baldur's Gate, I cannot deny that I have always found the 2e ruleset that it operated under to be clunky and awkward - do not get me started on dual-classing vs. multi-classing, or racial class restrictions. So, I was something of an evolutionist for D&D rulesets, up until 4e gave way to Essentials.
As a result, just for fun and a bit of brain exercise, I've been giving some thoughts to what classes and alignments the various characters from Baldur's Gate might have been if it was made under 4th edition rules.
Now, to clear the air first up, this is just for fun. I don't mind people posting comments about their own interpretations of a given character, and I am willing to consider other viewpoints, but let's no…Read more >
I've never done a blog post before, so I'm not 100% certain of the appropriate etiquette to be using here. I do apologise if things are said here that I'm not supposed to say.
I only recently began playing Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn with the Unfinished Business mod included, but I found myself intrigued. Right out the gate I found myself stumbling across one of the promised new quests. Now, while I have asked an admin, I doubt that entries on such quests will ever be allowed on here. So, I figured: if I have inspiration for writing articles about UB-exclusive quests, why not make a blog serial out of them? And so, without further ado, the first in what I hope will be a series on the quests included in Unfinished Business.
