PREFACE

I learned nearly all of this from the helpful members of alt.games.baldurs-gate. I created it to save them work as a way of thanking them for their kindness. If you really want to give anyone credit for whatever benefit you get from this, the regulars of that newsgroup deserve it far more than I. I single out for credit Musashi Dragon, Sheitan, Barron, fellow Husky K. Laisithit, Anthony de Vries, Mike Kelley, ,Damian, Cividan, Lazien, Ian the Mac, Kei, Egbert Hinzen, Doc, Henry Shevlin, Rick Craik, Tristan, Rich Velay, Arthur Hagen, Impulz, Skye, Rockz, Art Mruczek, Boxman, Ben, Elessar, Jeff Thorson, Ykalon Dragon, Martin Hackett and Locke, for starters, and haven't even given half the mentions that are deserved. (Want one? E-mail me your request and reason.) Any errors, of course, are my responsibility and mine alone. Spoilers increase as you go deeper into the FAQ.

Special thanks are due to the following website maintainers for their ongoing support of this document through making it available on their pages. These are also excellent places to start if you're looking for more information:

This is not a walkthrough, but does contain slight to moderate spoilers. YMMV. RTFM, of course, but in many cases when you RTFM you don't FTFA because it isn't in there or is poorly referenced in the index in some way. (No complaining about the manual's index, because if you notice, most games don't even have one in their manuals, and many manuals are a lot dinkier than this one. Let's just be glad the Lords of Interplay saw fit to include one and not give them too much crap about it.)
