Current Behavior: Bringing Books of Darkness (2 History of Sister of Light and Darkness can be found in Gullykin and 1 in Baldur's Gate) to Ulcaster ghost doesn't give you XP (and the ghost doesn't take the books).

Expected Behavior: The ghost would take the books and reward you for bringing them to him.

    He wants the book from the ruin only. It's personalised to him.

    In BG1 vanilla it was possible to obtain the reward for more than one book. Most likely this exploit has been removed on purpose in BGEE.

    Edit: It is indeed done on purpose as I checked with NearInfinity and currently the book from the ruins has a different item code than the other copies.

    Yes, this is not an issue.

    You can also bring to him kozah idol and the rusted armor (that found in Firewine dungeon) and you are rewarded with a cursed sword.

    If by cursed you mean AWESOME : )

    Give it to Rasaad and let him heal the party with it. Its the most usefulness you wll get out of him.

    The quest was intentionally updated - http://forum.baldursgate.com/discussion/2139/bg1-inconsistancy-ulcasters-book-0813

    You can only complete the quest by turning in the book from the ruins.

    @Sirk8 Thx for the link. I think the topic can be closed. ^_^

    A possible enhancement though could be to somehow make it more obvious in game that the book is unique to avoid confusion. Especially given the behavior in vanilla.
