Overheard Conversations

Oh hello!

One of the real hidden gems of the BG series is the sheer amount of detail hidden in the ambient audio.
The people of The Sword Coast are a talkative bunch and, on your travels through its towns and cities, you're liable to hear some very bizarre comments if you listen closely.
I've put together a list of dialogues I've heard in the ambient audio across the various maps of BG1. Of course, these may not be exact quotes but it's my best guess at what I think I can hear among the bustle of general sound effects.

Do feel free to share any other comments you might have heard in your runs, and maybe I'll make a list for BG2 if I ever make it there :)
