Forgive me. I'm sure none of these questions are new, but I'm not finding the answers I need by searching.
I had Dorn in my party. I did the early portion of his quest, but didn't finish it because I didn't have access to the city of Baldur's Gate yet. Later I removed Dorn from my party (my reputation was about to become too high and I didn't want to lose him).
Now that I have access to the city of Baldur's Gate, I've picked up Dorn again, but the quest isn't triggering. Is this because I removed him? Is it a bug? Or am I just not walking in the right spot? Did I need to have Dorn in my party the first time I crossed the bridge for it to work (he was with me the first time I visited the area, and it triggered dialogue, but that was long before I crossed and I've crossed since then)?
Never picked up Rasaad, but now that I have access to the city, I'd like to pick him up and run him through his quest. I understand that I will need to keep him in my party long enough for some dialogues to trigger, but my bigger worry is that I've already been to [Quest Location Area in BG]. If I go back there with him, will the quest properly trigger? Or does he have to be with you the first time you visit that area? I just want to avoid walking around with him for a couple weeks if his quest isn't going to trigger.
