The days when games were made not only by developers, but also artists, who cared about the details in their games, and made for those who cared about details in the games they played. RIP. Those hand-drawn sketches of items, and the detailed item history, are such a beautiful thing...

I do kinda miss the lore associated with many items and the little stories with them sometimes.

The only game I can think off the top of my head that captures a similar feeling is Dark Souls, mainly cause half the lore is in item descriptions in that game series.

Alt+ left click in the inventory on an item while the camp stash is opened transfers the item there. Make it a reality.

I never managedd to get over it. Let's drive the ship in the middle of the most populated city. Like...idk. Wasn't it easier to mind control someone and send him in the city if you needed someone in particular? Eh.

If I am understanding the cutscene correctly, the population of the city didn't matter at all. They absolutely steamrolled through it and picked up the people they needed to pick up. The issue is that Githyanki tracked them (which the Gith typically don't care much about Faerun cities) and attacked the ship with dragons. that said, escaping to hell of all places was probably the dumbest idea. Only place worse would have been the Abyss.

Im not sure if i understand this sentence ...
Do you imply that they were picking people? Since it seemed more like harvesting to me, just roll through and grab litteraly everything that gets in the way. laugh

But now im thinking about another theory!
- we know that tadpoles that was picked up from THAT caudron (or w/e you wish to call it) was special ...
- we know that this alterned tadpoles can remain dormant for unspecified period of time ...
- we know that this alterned tadpoles can turn their victims by "pulling the lever" ...
- we know that Nautiloids are extremely rare ... yet this Flayer of Mind was flying it to hugely populated area ...
Concidering this all ...
What if, that actualy WAS harvest? What if all those people was tadpoled, in the past ... needed to be harvested and delivered to Moonrise Towers, so their "True Soul" potential is awakened? O_o
Would that explain why risk such rare thing as Nautiloid? o_O

But we know they were not after the ship itself ... but after someone (actualy something) that was onboard! smile Kithrak said so, when we meet their patrol!
So, i presume they indeed didnt care about Faerun city, at all actualy. laugh

The question is how that teleportation works ...
What if (and i know this is wild theory) ... somewhere nearby was in the same time created falling whale? Or petunia flowerpot? laugh
But I guess in that case, Mind Flayer would have a towel around his neck. :-/


Short coment on my English. smile

Anyway ... i cast Eldritch Blast!

Oof that Edwin looks way too badass and Jaheira way too hot. And that Imoen looks more like Katarina than a thief-turned-mage. Nice art though.

it is what Edwin thinks he looks like at all times. (To be fair, if I didn't always play Conjuration Wizard, he'd probably be my team MVP).

Lol

I liked this art as well, but is interesting to see how the original art portraited mundane characters. They didn't have idealized these superhero facial features.

Edwin looks totally badass here.

Was Edwin really a Red Wizard? He still had his hair, no tattoos, and none of the Thayans we interacted with seemed to verify his rank/position.

According to the wiki:

According to BG2:EE dialogue with Rasaad, Edwin keeps his hood on at all times because he has trouble properly shaving his head in the Thayan fashion. This is unusual enough for Neera to call him a "non-bald Thay".

So he is a red wizard, but fitting his personality he is kinda bad at fitting in and meshing with them.
