    I changed my forum picture!

    If it looks weird, it's because it's flipped horizontally.

    Here's a sneak peek at what Beamdog is working on right now:

    Wizard Slayers are actually Squibs. If you name your Wizard Slayer Argus Filch, you can summon a cat familiar named Mrs. Norris, and if you get Mrs. Norris petrified by a basilisk, it opens up a unique side quest.

    The quest is heavily dialogue-based, but most of the dialogue is just 250 pages of a poltergeist blowing raspberries.

    Did you know that is another solution to ending the iron crisis and Sarevoks plans in Bg1? Well there is, but it you have to plan ahead and be swift and lucky in your execution:

    When you return to CK, Koveras/Sarevok approaches you. Considered a plot critical character he is bestowed 100% MR and a -5 save vs spell.

    But if you - before he talks to you - hit him with
    1) the druid spell magic resistance,
    2) greater malison,
    3) doom,
    4) chant
    5) domination
    If the domination spell isnt saved and bypasses MR, Koveras is dominated.

    If you have the gender belt, bracers of binding and the helmet of op. alignment in your back pack and charname is a male Jester, charname can give the items to Sarevok.

    Giving Sarevok the items turns him into the mild tempered valley girl Sara Vokk. Sara and charname will then be able to revert all of Sarevoks undoing - ending it all peacefully in a dance off at the temple of bhall.

    This should be a real thing lol.

    As I said before, this thread is full of interesting mod ideas :)

    Did you actually know that now is a really excellent time to read the entire meme thread from start to finish?

    (Don't forget the ill-fated original meme thread!)

    Sarevok's followers have their own base in the original BG1's game files. The design of it is what the safehouse at the start of SoD was based around.

    Apparently, its only accessible from another secret door leading from Undercellar. There aren't any quests associated with it, but it does have multiple levels and quite a bit of treasure.

    If you name your Bhaalspawn Socrates you gain +2 to Intelligence and Wisdom on Character Creation but any potion you drink will kill you.

    Someone mod this!

    Did you actually know that in 2015 The New York Times published and extended and ambitious interviews asking celebrities about their party composition in Baldur’s Gate? For example:

    - Pope Francis created a Priest of Illmater (the closest to the Franciscans Order), a halfling named Messi. He chose companions like Branwen, Anomen, Aerie, Ajantis and Keldorn (for this two he changed their colors to yellow, red and blue, like the Swiss Guard). He took Viconia when he saw her being about to be sacrificed by a mob, despite being he adviced that she had done bad things in the past; his answer was: “she reminds me of Maradona”.

    - Kim Kardashian: She made a Barbarian black dude with Str 18/00 and Con 18. Didn’t care much for mental stats. She also took Minsc, Dorn, Ajantis... and Safana. She liked Safana. In ToB she was a big fan of Sarevok. She never sold gems and she showed interest for the Thief Stronghold.

    Talking about celebrities, it is not well known that several 90s celebrities worked as voice actors:

    - Drizzt - Will Smith

    - Gorion - Leonard Cohen

    -Sarevok - Donald Trump

    -There was also an Al Pacino recording of a voice set for Charname based in his character from Scarface, all high on cocaine and all, but didn’t make the cut.

    -Did you actually know if you name your Charname Lion King, Scar will attack you at sight.

    -Did you actually know there is a cigarette in Baldur’s Gate, but you can only light it with a Wand of Fire Ball.

    -Did you actually know I was in Edmonton last weekend and I saw Trent Oster in a bar, and I got him drunk and told me they are working in a new NPC called McLovin, a very freaky and very horny wizard based in the character of the same name from “Superbad”, voice acted by the original actor, Christopher Mintz-Plasse

    -Did you actually know that Abdul guy was never meant to be the canon son of Bhaal but a copy of Dawson from Dawson’s creek?

    I have finally located the Source code for IWD2. It was kind of hidden in plain sight...

    The original written source code was recorded as spoken words in rhyme. This recording was the foundation for the record: “once upon a time in Shaolin”
    where music was recorded on to the source code.
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Once_Upon_a_Time_in_Shaolin

    Its just a matter of retrieving the record and transcribe the lyrics. Easy peasy

    Baldur's Gate was named after the famous gate in the American city of Boulder Baldur, Colorado.

    Baldur's Gate was named after the famous gate in the American city of Boulder Baldur, Colorado.

    And you can only see it by riding a mountain bike down the flat irons at local midnight during a blue moon. Shooting the Shelf at the Dark Horse beforehand doesn't hurt.

    If you want to kill Old Coppereyes in Planescape: Torment, you have to find the Sword of Vecna somewhere in or under Curst.

    Did you know that if you're playing BG when December, 24, becomes December, 25, Elminster spawns next to your party, dressed in a red suit with a white beard, called Santa Elminster, and asks you if you were naughty this year. If you have a high reaction score, he can give you his hat.

    Santa Elminster hat: All rolls get +2 bonus.


    And then you can romance and bed the liches

    no silly Charname, only the REAL Elminster can do that, and apparently did. For a good long while. No, seriously!

    Sarevok's plan makes sense if you think about it.
