    Wow, waiting for the final showdown! Finish strong, Teyl!

    thank you lunar :) will try so in an hour or so. problem is that in my setup I have to kill Sarevok's lackeys first before I can hurt him (SCS I think). And with Semaj and Angelo going invisible all the time and not even attacking my skellies, I'll have to be patient. Hopefull they'll show up at one point.

    Wasn't the manual of quickness action in a barrel in the Thieves' Guild, behind Black Lily...? I never played BGT so I can't say if it has been changed.

    It hasn't been changed in BGT, but the Item Randomiser mod I'm using changes the locations of many items that aren't quest-related, such as the Archmagi Robes, Boots of Speed, most tomes (but not the tome of WIS at Tymora's Temple in BG), etc.

    Yes, but the case was cancelled. I have to call later and see if they need me for any other days this week, but I'm a free man for today. =p

    The Item Randomiser mod puts all the items into tiers, you'll be able to see what tier the manual is put into and then see where you'll be able to find that tier of items.

    Here is a list where you can see what tier the items are put into and where you might find them.

    Thanks! That should facilitate my search :)

    Yeeeah! You did it! Now go and complete your first no-reload of Amn! (You did say you'd only beaten BG1 this way, right?)

  • BlackravenBlackraven Member Posts: 3,277
    Thank you @Elrandir! I indeed never completed SoA on no-reload. Will take some people along as well.
    However restartitis inspired me to come up with another concept: a party full of specialist mages who can cast only spells from their own school. :p So I will be dividing my time between Teyl and Eloysia.

    Would that be black pits or that thing I've heard people doing where they somehow play multiplayer by themselves? Either way, that's an awesome idea! I had a similar idea of a band of thieves just a couple days ago. Half multiclassed, half kitted, all with unique skills.

    Hey that's funny. I was thinking the same thing of Thieves (in BG1, you can a get a great party).
    BTW my plan isn't for Blackpits or Multiplayer. If you're interested, you can look here: http://forum.baldursgate.com/discussion/31147/scs-no-reload-with-a-band-of-specialist-mages#latest

    ***
    Teyl is in dire straits, and has less time to update his journal, but I'm going to let you know how he fares...

    After defeating Sarevok he returned to the City, killed Arkion and found the highly estimated Manual of Quickness of Action on the mage. He read the tome and then reported to Belt of his success. Belt sent him on a mission to Amn, but he was poisoned and handed over to a very powerful mage. His old friend from Candlekeep, Imoen had been captured as well. She helped him escape from his cell.
    Stripped of all their equipment, Teyl found some very basic gear. He's fatigued [very annoying, -3 to my rolls, I think charname never starts out fatigued in Irenicus' Dungeon], but he feels he can't rest lest his captor returns for him. A moment ago he barely managed to overcome a puny Mephit, much to his embarrassment. The Mephit had even injured Imoen and Teyl.

    He also saw Minsc in a cage, but wasn't sure whether or not to release the rashamani ranger, considering how he'd left Minsc to his fate, surrounded by vampires, zombies and vampiric wolves at the Firewine Ruins, a few months before. Another cage contained an elven woman whose face he vaguely recognized. One of the elves he had seen staring at him at the Friendly Arm Inn? They had never spoken though.
    His main concern being to get out of this hellhole, he didn't bother with looking for keys or a way to release Minsc or the elf. He soon changed his mind though. When he proceeded he met a Djinni posing him a riddle he ws too tired to solve. His answer caused the Djinni to summon an Ogre Mage. Hidden in shadows Teyl retreated and decided to find a way to "help" the other prisoners escape with him. (He was well aware that it would most likely be the other way around, with them helping him!) Minsc's great warrior strength allowed him to bend the bars of his cage and step out. Teyl was particularly pleased when the intellectually challenged ranger showed no memories of the circumstances in which they had parted at te Firewine Ruins.
    Teyl thought this to be a most satisfactory arrangement, but even Minsc was uncapable of bringing down the Ogre Mage. It wasn't until the Djinni intervened, with Minsc at the brink of death, that they could relax. The Djinn advised Teyl to seek out someone named Rielev.

    They had three healing potions, but those are all gone now. Their grievous wounds inspired the party to take a rest (and a risk of being captured again).

    Teyl's adventures in Amn were short-lived.
    For the Shadow Thieves / Edwin, he undertook to kill Rayic Gethras in his home in the Docks District. He worked his way past the Mephits on the first floor, and even bested the golems on the second floor.


    image


    On the third floor he saw with Rayic himself. Teyl entered stealthed, and placed two traps out Rayic's sight. When he became visible the two spoke, and Teyl exused himself and left, only to return once again hidden in shadows, to try a dispelling attack with his Delnar' Eye Gouger dart, but that didn't work. Teyl moved away from Rayic. The traps triggered but didn't kill the mage, who cast a Power Word, Stun on Teyl. It give the mage sufficient time to finish Teyl off with Melf's Minute Meteors.

    :( This has easily been my favorite thread for a quite some time.

    @illusion, thanks man!
    I hadn't played Teyl in a while, until this afternoon. Most of it went pretty smooth, even though my metaknowledge of BG2 has become quite rusty. PW Stun, man there's not even a save against that... Deadly if you'all alone.

    The good thing is that I can think of a new character now, or maybe give Grynne the Wizard Slayer a second chance.

  • CrevsDaakCrevsDaak Member Posts: 7,145
    @Blackraven or you can start BG2 again :)
    Or just create a new character :)
    Or a all cleric party instead :)
    Or play with Grynne :)
    BUT HELL, HE (Teyl) FREAKING DIED!!!! :(:(
    Also, the Stone Golem is grey because of aTweaks, right? Now I regret not installing that particular part of the mod :P

    Won't restart BG2, for me Charname has to start in Candlekeep. All clerics or more likely all thieves is an option yes, as is Grynne. Am looking into Avenger atm. Will figure something out :)
    Am a bit reluctant to continue with the specialist mages, ever since Elly died and I had to reload.

    I've got no idea why the stone golems look grey (or even what color they're supposed to look lol).

    That's really a shame :-( SCS mages are much tougher.

    @MacHurto, yep... so careful on your next playthrough ;)
    (I think I read somewhere you were going to install SCS)

    I'm so sad Teyl died ! It was a very interesting thread, and i'm looking for your next playthrought (and i'm also starting to play only no-reload now, you got me !)

  • BlackravenBlackraven Member Posts: 3,277
    Hey thanks @Gotural, will post about anew playthorugh today :)
    And I think it's really nice that you're going no-reload as well! I'd love to read about it if you care to share on the forums!
