I just beat Icewind Dale and imported my party to Heart of Winter, excited to play the expansion because I've never done so before. I am a habitual pack rat, and had picked up the bag of holding early on to accommodate my arsenal of interesting, but largely unused weaponry, armor and magical items. Likewise, I had two or three gem bags, a couple of scroll cases and potion bags and the ammo belt and the potion - in other words, just about every storage device I could get my grubby little mitts on.
I was looking forward to adding to my already expansive collection, and was shocked to learn that my precious containers did not travel with my party to Lonelywood. I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm just a little [completely] heartbroken.
Is this working as intended? Do I need to backtrack and start the HoW story before I beat Icewind Dale? Can I even do that? Is there *any* way that I can keep my stuff in the expansion?
tl;dr: My bag of holding didn't follow me to HoW and I am very, very, very sad.
