Hope would return with the retrieval of the simplest of tomes... beneath the rubble... on the lowest floors... return hope... history is so important...

–Ghost of Ulcaster

Tomes of Magic is a side quest given by the Ghost of Ulcaster in the Ulcaster area.

Baldur's GateEdit

The goal of this quest is to get a copy of History of the Darkness, found in the Vampiric Wolves' room in the Ulcaster Dungeon (co-ordinates 1400, 1070), Gullykin (two copies), and Baldur's Gate West. Giving Ulcaster this book is a repeatable quest.

Baldur's Gate: Enhanced EditionEdit

In the Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition, this quest has been altered so that Ulcaster will only accept the book found in the Ulcaster Dungeon. It is, therefore, not repeatable. The book in this version is identified as Ulcaster's Dusty History Book in your inventory, although examination reveals it to be a History of the Sisters of Light and Darkness.

The 1000 xp reward for this quest may seem meagre, but the great many items to be collected in the dungeon make up for the lack of material rewards many times over.
