I am pleased to announce the release of the Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition - Unofficial Game Manual. This manual, based directly from official documents (BG:EE and BG1/BG2 manuals), combines BG:EE Manual 1 and Manual 2 into a single, 5.6"x8" document. It adds some content from the BG1 and BG2 manuals, as well has other data taken from the game.
What you'll find: Updated Spell information Updated Kit information Improved tables Reorganization of Part 2 and Part 3 for improved flow Update ability score descriptions Updated UI descriptions New, full color photographs And much more ...
The goal of this manual was to maintain the original look and feel of the BG1 and BG2 manuals and to keep the spirit of the BG:EE Manuals, while making improvements along the way.
I created this document to ease the process of adding content and making changes to the current game manuals. I also saw this project as an opportunity to express my own creativity, and as a chance to implement many of the features and fixes that the fans wanted in the official manuals.
The current version is only that, a version. I look forward to feedback and suggestions that would help further enhance and shape this manual. If you find any errors in this manual, please let me know via this thread or private message.
