    Actually, gnoll stronghold was the main plot location for the planned Baldur's Gate III. It could be reached through a tunnel system, in which you could enter with opening a secret entrance at the waterfall, where Drienne's cat can be find. You had to gather all the dead animal and humanoid corpses throughout the trilogy, and place them into the container there.

    The bunch of the new game took place in the underdark, it explained the roles of the dopplegangers by Durlag's tower and the Iron Throne, revealed the plot for the Twisted Rune (including the Hidden, Shangalar, and the guarded compound at the Temple District in Athkatla).

    Saemon Havarian turns up again too for some reason.

    Black Hound is actually a reference for the final boss, a gnoll demi-god.

    Another thematic element of the aforementioned Baldur's Gate III brainstorm cult-planners ~ who frequently rented entire floors of the famous Chateau at Lake Louise, Alberta Canada ~ revolved around the remarkable events surrounding the adventurer Tamah and her submerged house south of Beregost. She of course is to be encountered in petrified form in Mutamin's Garden.

    The Gnoll Stronghold, as one might suspect, originally had strong links to the world-shaking "career" of Cyric and was drastically affected when Cyric was forced to read Oghma's magical corrective text, "The True Life of Cyric".

    The great secret revealed is that Tamah is actually the daughter of the famous witch Rinda who opposed Cyric in the struggles which destroyed Zhentil Keep. Some believe that the famous magical text may have been largely composed by Rinda, but that seems unlikely, unless Rinda was a secret bearer of Mystra's Bequest.

    Tamah prudently chose to disappear via petrification after many adventures, one of which, rumored to be a set-piece battle using a new game-engine, is crucially set at Firewine Bridge after a long prelude involving Durlag's Tower-just as the devotees of Cyric were about to uncover her true identity, thanks to the indefatigable efforts of the infamous Beliache Nuberis [still to be found wandering the streets of Nashkel ]

    The mind of Nuberis was of course broken in the final battle [in which Thalantyr played a key role] but Elminster, ever the Neutral Harper meddling, preserved the Tiefling Mage-Cleric as a sort of joke only known by himself and Volo, who also plays a key [albeit hapless and clueless] Deus ex Machina sort of role in the game.

    not many people knows that the familiar shares the same gender( or sex, i am not so able to discriminate the difference as english is not my native language) of charname.
    so if your neutral female charname mage uses the "bunny" limited wish choice while her familiar is not it the backpack there is a 99% chance the familiar becomes pregnant and after 4 weeks (in game time) you will find in the backpack 2d4 more baby familiars, each one adding hp to your charname.
    as familiars can not be dropped into some bag of holding managing inventory will become a big problem, but the advantage of the added HP can not be overlooked.

    possible Russian invasion of Alaska

    That's called restoration of rightful ownership. Everybody knows the sale of Alaska was an illegal deal. Fear not, we'll refund the money paid, all $7.2 mil of it :D

    Denmark is only currently plotting to re-conquer the Danish West Indies (falsely called the "U.S. Virgin Islands") which were illegally sold in 1917. :mrgreen:

    In other news, did you actually know that if you keep the Red Dragon Scales and the Shadow Dragon Scales into Throne of Bhaal, and you give then to Cespenar along with the Blue Dragon Scales, the White Dragon Scales, the Silver Dragon Scales and the Yellow Dragon Scales, along with 100,000 GP, he can produce the Multi-Hued Dragon Armor which gives the wearer the appearance of a dragon, ability to breathe poison, fire, ice and electricity at the same time, and immunity to +7 and higher weapons?
