BG2 Shadows of Amn (PC game) - Romance FAQ by SlashR4 Ver 2.0 -------------------------------------------------------------------- Disclaimer This is the result of someone's hardwork, and believe me it is very hard work doing this FAQ with A levels coming up and all the rest of it. If I catch anybody hosting this FAQ without my permission as I am the author then I will make sure that you burn in hell and I will get Edwin to burn you. So remember, if you want to post this FAQ on your site or whatever, then please ask me. One more thing. If I catch you selling this FAQ to other people for profit, I will get a lawyer to get you. And on this note I am being deadly serious. I am not having somebody taking my work to let them earn money which they didn't have any input at all. If you do not take heed of what has just been said, then you will suffer the consequences and I will make sure that justice is brought down upon you. If you post this on your site, the FAQ can not be changed in any way only if you ask my permission. Not only that but if I find anybody changing the name of the author in anyway then I will also find some way to get you. Now that we understand each other, let's begin without any more unnecessary delay. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Table of Contents -------------------------- 1.

I'm currently doing my last year at a boarding school in England. This means that I am smack bang in the middle of the most critical period of my A levels. (Where's Edwin's Time Stop spell when you need it?) But nevertheless I will be doing this FAQ at the same time. It is currently my second FAQ that I have started doing, my last one being an abortive attempt on doing the Japanese translation of FF9. Well, it was too big a project and the English version came out before I had time to finish it. You can still see it around on the FF9 FAQs and Codes page at GameFaqs. This will be the one and only FAQ that I believe I will see it through. As you all can see I'm a complete BG2 addict, and have played it many times ever since I got it. I believe it to be one of the greatest AD&D games in the gaming industry ('Of course not, I could make one MUCH better!' as Edwin kindly points out). This is perhaps one of the only RPG games that have made me play it over and over again without ever getting bored of it with the exception of FF7 as well. I normally hang around at the BG2 message board at GameFaqs so if you guys don't see any updates soon or want to kick my butt in the right path don't hesitate to either look for me at the message boards or send an email to K.SIT99@repton.org.uk. During the summer holidays I can be found at SlashR4@hotmail.com. The games that I play now are: BG2 (surprise, surprise!), Chrono Cross (playstation), Tony Hawks 2 (playstation), The Sims (PC). Having said that let's move on to the most fundamental part of the FAQ. Yep, you guessed it - The Introduction of the FAQ! ======================================================================== 2.1 Introduction to the FAQ =============================== I have always wanted to do this FAQ ever since I saw that there wasn't any romance FAQs on Gamefaqs. Unfortunately I couldn't actually start it cause back then I hadn't even started playing a single romance yet, let alone hearing that you could have it. Romances in BG2 are not vital to the storyplot, hell, you could beat the game without doing any love quests. However the great thing about love quests is that you gain an insight of those characters whom you would like to have a relationship with. You know more about their character and instead of being just flat one sided characters, the begin to take shape and grow as you progress through the love quest. Unfortunately, love quests takes a very long time to complete and chances are is that you will beat the game before you have even finished your love quest. Another important thing about love quests is that they do not give you extra experience. Only NPC plots do that. Therefore it can be argued that love plots are pratically useless. However, I enjoy seeing my characters develop and understanding more about those characters, which is why I always try to complete a love quest. At the moment, this FAQ will only contain hints and help to give you some insight on what options to choose during your romance dialogues. Later on I will provide a more indepth explanation such as giving you the best answer for each love dialogue in the Step by Step section part of this FAQ. I have also included a difficulty rating to rate each character's difficulty in the love plot so that you know which one you want to do if it is hard or easy. The profiles section are just some basic information about the character and some personal insights in their group usefulness and things like that. Please note that it is just my own personal experience and in your game it most likely is wrong, so spare me the indignity of writing to me with a long email of pure abuse. I will cry and beat my heart out! One more VERY IMPORTANT thing to note is that this FAQ doesn't cover everything about finishing the romance off. Instead it tells you the necessary dialogues that you need to have gone through in order to see the special event that happens before you enter Bodhi's Lair in Chapter 6. I hope you will find what you need in due time. Enough talking, let the action begin to make your character a love master specialist! ======================================================================== 3.0. How to instigate love quests? --------------------------------------- 'Well, how do I start the love quests then?' I hear you ask. It is quite simple really. You must be either a human, elf, or half elf in order for the romances to occur. The next step is to acquire the appropriate person in your party in order to get the ball rolling, so to speak. If you are playing a character of another race other than those previously mentioned then you will not be able to have a romance with the characters unless you download a patch which allows you to do so. Each love quest is unique in its own way and have different background music whenever the NPC's love dialogue appears. The only bad thing about these romances is that the duration between each dialogue usually takes a long time to occur, usually between 5-6 days or even a week. You may be able to download a romance patch on the internet somewhere that speeds up the process but I can't find it myself and it would help if I could use it cause, man, writing this FAQ does take time especially the step by step walkthrough part. ('Ay, step by step me own arse, take yer axe and hack it up ay' as Korgan would say). Anyways, let's move on to the main part of the FAQ, and to the characters that you will gradually know better or more intimately as the game goes on. ======================================================================== ------------- 3.1 Aerie ------------- Profile: Arial elf. (She used to have wings until she got had them chopped off cause they were gangrenous since she was kept in a cage all the time.) She's a cleric/mage dual class making her a useful ally although her lack of intelligence means that she cannot memorize or learn level 9 spells. Well, from a male (yup, that's what I am) point of view, Aerie is perhaps the least pretty out of the three choices. (Okay, okay, its just my personal opinion okay? Don't send abusive emails over to me cause at school I'll get nailed if it's rude!) Besides that she has a sweet little voice and her personality is quite nice (being lawful good alignment) and she's always trying to save people from getting killed by the party (instances like Embarl the thief and the Svirflbeln gnomes). However, she's not always a happy lass, as you will soon find out when you play out her romance. Diff: She's definitely not hard to get! She is easily the beginner's choice or rather, for the love master apprentice! Party: My party consisted of Minsc, Yoshimo, big me, Aerie (naturally) Edwin, Jaheira. I have not got any of the other potential love interests in my party and I suggest that you do not either when you embark on the love quest because there may be some unexpected dialogues. Hints: As with all love quests I believe that the main character's alignment and certainly the reputation score has some influence on the outcome and the reaction of the NPCs. Thus when courting Aerie I would suggest having a high reputation so that she is happy with your party. Moreover, I believe (and this is only a hunch by the way, so if anybody could prove otherwise I would be grateful) is that with Aerie, there are two possible paths you can follow. One of them will result in Aerie asking you to 'sleep' with her in which case you must say NO!! Yes, say NO!!! It is very important that you say no, otherwise she will break the relationship off saying that it has advanced too quickly. The other path is just pure talking so you just have to find the right answers. This is where the hints come into play! (Yay hay! Straight to the point at last). In choosing the right answers it is imperative that you pick lines, which encourage more conversations with her. You must make her open up to you and in order to do that you will have to ask her questions about herself. When she has problems (she really only has one problem but makes it into such a big problem you sometimes think that she might just commit suicide or something) you will have to be understanding and sensitive. About halfway through into the love dialogues, there will come a moment when she completely loses it totally and just says that she cannot hack it with the party anymore, or words to that effect. Do not be tricked in doing the super sensitive thing by choosing the option that apologizes to her for not being able to take care of her or whatever and send her packing home. She will leave the party and the romance will finish right there. Instead choose the other option to teach her how to meet life with hope even though her wings are lost Another very important thing with Aerie is that during the Ust Natha quests you cannot sleep with Phaere. If you do so then you will lose Aerie for life!!! Instead choose the option that says 'no...I can't. Then when she asks you what you mean by that then say that, 'I can't...*I can't*' When you say this then she will ask you if you are an eunuch. Otherwise known as impotent, then you just say yes. Aerie will be relieved when you step out of Phaere's chambers. I think that's about all the important aspects of Aerie's love quest. Steps: For the sake of making life easier for me I have simplified love dialogues into LD. So all you have to do is follow the sequence from LD 1 to LD whatever. This will take you through the romance! LD1: 'My wings have been clipped...oh, I wish you could understand how it feels to be bound and chained to the ground, like a miserable prisoner of earth' Choose option 1 LD2: 'Have...have you ever heard of my people? The Avariel? Choose option 1 'My memory is dim, but whenever the thought crosses my mind, my eyes still blur with tears' Choose option 1 LD3: 'He used to say that a frown would never get anything useful done. I think everyone could use some cheering up...what about you (character name)? Choose option 4 LD4: I...I have been looking at the scars...on my back. The stumps that were...that were once my wings. They do not make me truly homely do they? Am I...am I ugly to you? You can choose either option 1 or 3. Either will have more or less the same effect. I've felt like a great part of me has been missing ever since. I am incomplete...I do not feel beautiful, (character name). Not anymore. Either option 1 or 2 will suffice although I believe 2 to be the better answer. LD5: 'Have I told you how I was captured and enslaved? Choose Option 1 'I...I...I suppose...I suppose I was glad to learn that the child escaped after all He ran away after my fall. Hopefully he survived...' Choose Option 1 LD6: I miss my Uncle Quayle dearly Choose option 1 'I was happy...of a sort...while I was with him. I owe him so much.' Choose Option 1 'Baevern brought me my faith back. He gave me peace when I needed it most. And I shall always pay him homage in my heart. Is that so strange (character name)?' Either option 1 or 2, but I think 1 is better. LD7: 'Have you traveled much? I have been over much of Amn and Tethyr...with the circus although it was not always the most pleasant way to voyage' Choose option 1 or 2. I believe 2 is better though. 'And...and I am glad to be traveling with you (character name). You have saved my life and made me feel very welcome.' Either option 1 or 2 will do but I believe 2 is better here. LD8: 'AHHH! HELP ME! HELP ME! PLEEEAAASSE! Well it is pretty straight forward. There is only one option after all!! 'I...(gasp)...I was having a dream. A most dreadful nightmare! Please...please sit with me but for a short while...I am shaken to the very core...' Choose option 1!! (shudder) I screamed and screamed!! They...hacked off...my wings and then used torches to seal my wounds. Oh, (char name)...! (sob!) Oh, (char name) I...I...! I believe option 2 is the best but 1 will also suffice. LD9: 'I have been thinking...I shall never fly again, never taste the freedom of my wings. I am sure of it...I...I don't know if I can face this wretched existence on the ground.' Choose option 1 'But it IS! It is (char name)! How could you understand when you haven't flown in the clouds? To feel weightless and free. Ohhh how I miss it! There is some debate on what to choose here. 1 and 2 will work but I really don't know which is better. I chose 2 here but in my other games I have chosen 1. Either way, the romance will not finish. LD10: I...I am sorry for the way I yelled at you. I sometimes feel as if... I have been weighted down by many stones...but I should not have reacted so to your words. Choose option 1 I...I suppose you are correct. But how can I? Tell me how can I ever accept this (char name)? Choose option 1 or 2. LD11: 'Why must we always be fighting? All I see is bloodshed and battle...and it drains me. Do you...do you not yearn for a life of peace and contemplation?' Choose Option 1 LD12: 'I need you to tell me what the worth of life on the ground is. Is there anything to compare with the freedom of living in the clouds?' Choose option 1 'No...they can't be. Everything of beauty can be seen from the sky. And there are so many places that you cannot go if you can only walk.' Choose option 2 LD13: 'I've...I've had enough of this life! (sob!) P-perhaps it would be better if I just went back to the circus. Choose option 3. Yes it looks harsh but if you choose any other then she'll leave the party. 'But I have, I have (char name)! I just don't have the strength. I'm so useless...' Choose option 2 (sob!) I...I can't Choose option 2. LD14: 'I'm such a silly woman. Whining and crying...I must seem so ridiculous and petty. No man will ever want me I think...I feel so embarrassed.' Choose option 3 'Oh, you're just flattering me (char name)! None of that is true really! Choose option 2 'Oh...I see. Well thank you (char name). Ummm...do you...do you think I'm beautiful? I mean do you feel all these things about me?' Choose option 2 LD15: 'I've...I've been thinking about some of the things you have been telling me. I...I wanted you to know that I've come to a decision' Choose option 1 'And I...I hope that you will be here to teach me about it (char name). To show how one can still...still live on the ground and still be happy.' Choose option 1 LD16: 'Aerie says that she has heard about your adventures in Sword Coast north of here. She asks you what you did and says that it sounds exciting. Choose the option where you say that you went to Baldur's Gate to defeat your brother Sarevok. A couple more dialogues, Aerie says that do you think she's strange? Tell her that you are pleased with her change and she will say that she is also pleased and will look forward to battles and says that the feeling is really exciting and she feels like she can fly again. LD17: 'Have you been to many other places besides Amn?' Choose option 1 'I...I want to go to these places (char name)! I want to voyage there and see their beauty for myself...and want to stand there and feel it...touch it with my hands.' Choose option 1 ~~~~~~~~~~~ NOTE ~~~~~~~~~~~~ By now Aerie is basically your girlfriend. Those who know how to use the CLUAConsole or use Shadowkeeper will be able to see in the ROMANCEACTIVE part of the global variables the number there is now a 2 which means romance acquired. ~~~~~~~~~~ LD18: 'I've been wondering...have you got any advice for me for combat?' Choose option 1 LD19: 'I...I know that it is difficult to see what is to happen in the future...but do you have any plans? I mean once this is all over, I mean...' Choose option 1 'Well do you see your self traveling? Or settling down? Do you...do you see yourself with me?' 'I would prefer to be with you Aerie...if the Gods are willing' LD20: 'My love...? I...I know that you are tired from the day's travels and that you wish to rest. I...wish to ask you something...before you retire to your blankets...' Choose option 1 'I...I will show you my body (char name)...and I hope it pleases you. Would you...would you stay with me this night (char name)? Will you show me what true love consists of?' Choose option 2 'Stay with me for the night then (char name) and hold me to you. I...don't want to be alone, and I so desperately need to be near you.' Choose option 1 LD19: 'I was so eager to experience everything new that I...I did not think. Thank you for respecting me. I...I love you and I want our first time to be something special.' Choose option 1 From here on, if you continue on to Chapter six and meet Bodhi, you will get a special event concerning your love interest, in this case Aerie. You will have to save her from being a vampire and in order to do that you will have to read through some books on vampirism which can be found in Bodhi's lair at the bottom level in a trapped chest! Basically, the Aerie romance finishes right here! Yay! ------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------- 3.2 Jaheira: Profile: Nice tough blonde elf. As you can see she's a fighter/druid class and that means she's a pretty good party member to have around with those useful cleric spells. Unfortunately as she's only a druid it means that she can't use the very handy restoration spells. Her personality is well cloaked in her voice, as she's a very independent woman, and has the need to be in control of her own fate. As you play out her romance you will soon find that she may not be as fully in control of her own destiny as she might have hoped. It seems ironic that she is a woman of balance as she is a member of the Harpers yet she is not in balance emotionally under your leadership. Thus the unbalance of her emotions and what she thinks of your role as a child of Bhaal. Diff: This romance ain't that difficult at all. Just a little common sense much like Aerie's romance. It'll be medium difficulty but it is also the most fun romance to play out compared with all the others. Hints: Like Aerie's romance you just need to choose the answers that are basically suited to her style. Balance is the key thing here and you want to maintain that you are fighting for the balance of things. The fact that she later on comes out of the Harper group is more emotional stress for her and so you have to be a little bit understanding and sentimental. Remember don't use violence all the time when you meet her Harper comrades who are out for your blood. She will respect you more for this and it will mean that her altitude towards you will be better. There are several other sub-quests that you should do to make Jaheira happy. First and foremost you must do Jaheira's Baron Ployer quest. You can find him in the Bounty Sea tavern in the Docks. Next do Xcar's Harper quest which will automatically take place after you bring Renfield back to the Galverey Estate. There are known problems with Jaheira's love quest. You MUST have SHADOWKEEPER, otherwise you will not be able to complete the entire story! Shadowkeeper is a trainer program and it is a necessity. There are two main areas where Jaheira's romance may seem to 'freeze'. The most common one is the appearance of Dermin which should happen straight after LD23. If he does not appear, use Shadow Keeper and under Jaheira's character portrait you should be able to find the variable LOVETALK. Edit this value to the one before it. This would mean that if you load up the LOVETALK value and it is on 32 for example, set it to 31. Then reload the game and the dialogue should appear again. After this dialogue Dermin should appear. If he does not. Go to the area just outside of the Copper Coronet in the Slums area and save your game. Then do as I have mentioned above and Dermin should appear. The other point of 'freezing is when Terminsel should appear to give you the note that Jaheira had left behind for you. Anyways without further ado we shall begin! Steps: LD1: 'Where to now, fearless leader?' Choose option 3 'I'm...I'm sorry (char name). I do not wish to cause undue strain in our party. I am merely a bit stressed and no doubt you are as well' Choose option 2 LD2: 'Hmmm...seems I cannot help but speak of the dead lately. I did not want to cause you any distress if I have.' Choose option 1 'They do at that. Do you...recall his tales? They could last for days, a snippet at a time, here and there. He built a history so it was like you were there.' Choose option 2 'Yes, he sheltered you from those that would harm you. Khalid was the same way, always taking the cautious path.' Choose 'Slow and steady, lest mistakes be made. Good things come in time.' LD3: 'Ehh, I think I still have a stitch in my leg from lying in that cold cell we were in. It is good to be up and moving.' Choose option 1 'You did what you could and that is enough. I appreciate and I also worry that you have suffered worse.' Choose option 2 LD4: Jaheira has a bad dream. You will have to console her. Here's how the dialogue goes: 'Nnn...No...NO!! Wh...wh...what?' Choose option 1 'No, there is something very wrong. I...I have been having nightmares, and when I awake, it is still there. Khalid...I thought I was stronger than this.' Choose option 2 LD5: 'A copper for your thoughts. You are looking rather pensive today. Doubts about your current path perhaps?' Choose option 1 'Is that your feeling? I was taught that we all had choice, but then the great cycle likely did not count on divine interference. You must feel pressure that I do not.' Choose option 1 This next part is obvious. There's only one option! LD6: Jaheira has another nightmare. Its another one of these things. This is easy here we go! Choose option 3 'He walked with us, from a distance. He smiled that I was content. I guess...I guess I was.' Choose option 1 LD7: 'Blast, our progress is not as it could be, I am sure. Ah, perhaps it is just me. I grow tired of these pursuits. My life was not always such' Choose option 1 'It was like that for a long time, but I always felt that I should do more. Balance needed to be...encouraged. I wouldn't let it happen again.' Choose option 1 LD7: 'I...This may be a bad time or not, but you asked a question of me and I brushed it aside. I would speak of it now...if you still wish to hear.' Choose option 1 'I...I don't know why I didn't wish this known. Maybe I thought such a history was unimportant by the standards of others...such as...well...such as yourself.' Choose option 2 LD8: 'We continue on our path and I cannot help but wonder if we walk in balance. I have a role to follow. Choose option 1 'Sometimes the proper course is hard to see, what is best overall may seem barbaric at first. You will know this when...if you deal with Harpers in the future.' Choose option 2 LD9: '(char name), do you worry of missing friends? Or those missing or...lost? Of course you do, I don't know what prompted me to ask' Choose option 1 'I am becoming used to the aftermath of death, but I will not forget what must be avenged. There must be closure. I must do this even as I...as we...move on.' Choose option 1 LD10: 'I do wish these scars would heal. I've a life to continue and do not need to be picking at old wounds.' Choose option 1 'True enough, but I think I was speaking of emotional markings.' Choose option 1 LD11: 'This is a dangerous life we seem to lead, it does seem. I wonder if you always think it will be so? Choose option 1 'Have you...given any thought to this?' Choose option 3 'Yes, I suppose your heritage adds a complicating factor. You have a birthright, of a sort. I wonder what you intend to do with it when age grants you wisdom.' Choose option 2 LD12: This isn't a love dialogue or anything. Some bandits appear and take Jaheira hostage. They will ask you for your valuables. However, don't give them it. Instead tell them that you will be their hostage instead. When Ertof Dand says, 'I think I got the gist of it lassie. Well now she does not seem to think much of your plan. What say you now valiant one?' Choose option 1 After the fight she will say, 'Are...are you alright?' Choose option 1 'Good, I am so glad...you IDIOT! What were you thinking? You could have been killed! An arrow could pierce the heart or the eyes when you stand like a pincushion!' Choose option 1 LD13: Again, this is not a love dialogue but a woman called Meronia appears and tells Jaheira to follow her. When Meronia tells Jaheira to make her farewells quick and that she will not be gone long choose option 1. Jaheira will leave your party for a while until she finds you again. LD14: Jaheira returns and tells you to go with her to the Harper Hold. After she says: 'I have been asked to bring you, and we must go soon. They will allow us to pass the wards of the door, but I must be with you, and I must be conscious.' Choose option 1 LD15: Once again this is not another love dialogue but a confrontation with Galvarey. You can choose whatever option you wish because it will lead invariably to violence. However I do try and be civil for Jaheira's sake. It is also important to know that when Galvarey decides to have you killed, Jaheira will ask you if you would like her to fight alongside you against them. Choose the option that says, 'I had hoped...I had hoped you would, but I do not wish you to harm your friends.' LD16: 'So, what do you think of Amn so far? It is certainly not without its charms, or its hardships lately.' Choose option 1 'Perhaps not. It has always been so, but there are many things of merit here. Perhaps not in the cities, but the forests are a great treasure.' Choose option 2 'That is, if you have not tired of my company yet.' Choose option 2 LD17: 'We have had many people seek our death so far. Some would have been friends had things been different. This weighs on my mind.' Choose option 3 The next dialogue is easy, there is only one option after all! LD18: 'Again I must say how much I prefer the forest to artificial structures. Everything I see simply reinforces that to no end.' Choose option 3 'Yes, but must the gathering be done with such fervor? When people assemble they attract those who want to lead. Why do they not just accept their proper place?' Choose option 1 'You are not a slave to your parentage though, and...I guess I am no Harper.' Choose option 1 LD19: 'I have been in a similar place as this before, though it was in the company of other Harpers. I will miss those times. Choose option 2 'I doubt that it will be that easy. Galvarey was as close to a regional leader as the Harpers have. The events will be told in his favour I am sure. Choose option 1 LD20: This is another scene where Reviane spawns and tells Jaheira that she will suffer a traitor's death. When Reviane asks Jaheira why 'this man should command so much value?' Choose option 1 When Jaheira says: 'You must do as you will Reviane. I have told you the circumstance, there is little for me to say.' Choose option 2 LD21: 'Skies are a bit gray no matter where we go, aren't they? Or perhaps it is just my mood. Yes, that must be it. No wonder I suppose. I cannot help but think of Reviane.' Choose option 2 'I don't know. I begin to wish we had been wrong. It would be so much simpler. I want to believe as they do, and I wish I didn't feel like I...' Choose option 2 'I am sorry (char name), I didn't mean to suggest anything.' Choose option 2 LD22: 'This may be a bad time or not, but I think we should speak..' Choose option 2 'Yes, well, I wished to apologize for our argument before. I wanted...I wanted you to know why I cannot speak about the Harpers. There is much harm I could do.' Choose option 1 'If I am in the right, why must I tell you their secrets? If I am in the right, why must I hide? I do not have answers for these questions and they worry me.' Choose option 1 'Yes, but can I? There is no middle ground. I am heading for an extreme of either end. With you at least the choice is mine. It is, isn't it?' Choose option 2 LD23: 'There is an ill wind in the air. Do you feel it? I feel a storm inside, in the distance.' Choose option 3 'I don't know what I meant. They say you shiver when someone walks over your grave. I feel as though something were marching back and forth across mine.' Choose option 2 LD24: 'Blast, my armour needs some cleaning.' Choose option 2 'No, no, it wouldn't. I am sorry but this will take some time again.' Choose option 1 'Somewhat, I am far from my old self however. I thank you for putting up with me.' Choose option 1 'Yes...yes, I suppose I have. How much did I do for you however, and how much was for me alone?' Choose option 1 LD25: 'Your old injuries feeling alright? I thought I saw you wince a moment ago.' Choose option 1 'I...I am flattered, I suppose.' Choose option 1 LD26: 'So...could I...have a few moments of your time?' Choose option 2 'Thank you, I wished to speak of the future a bit. I know we have discussed this in brief before, but I need to clarify a few things.' Choose option 1 'Do you still find my company beneficial? Do you still think of our missing friends as often as you did? What of your fight for balance?' Choose option 1 LD27: 'I...I need to speak with you a moment.' Choose option 1 'I wished to apologize for my questions earlier. I was too forward. I needed to know you remain the same man that I began traveling with so long ago.' Choose option 2 'That does not ease my mind. I must know what is truth or I cannot trust myself. My decisions have affected many and I do not wish to endanger anyone else.' Choose option 1 'No? The Harper in your midst?' Choose option 1 LD28: 'How...how did that battle make you feel? Did you enjoy it? Choose option 2 'No, but what were your motivations? You can be violent like any other person, but there is more at stake at with you. What were you thinking?' Choose option 1 For the next dialogue choose option 1 LD29: This is not a love dialogue but instead Dermin comes again and this time warns Jaheira that the Harper court has decided her fate. Death. He tells her that the main character can be avoided from suffering the same fate as long as she return to the Harper Hold. Jaheira will say that she will 'think on this' LD30: Again it is not a love dialogue but a guy called 'Terminsel' will show up. This happens exactly after you have successfully rested without the guards bothering you. When you wake up you will find that Jaheira is no longer in your party and Terminsel gives you a note from Jaheira. In the note she says that she has returned to the Harper Hold for her judgment. She tells you not to go after her, You must therefore return to the Harper Hold in the Docks District and you will find Jaheira on the top floor (the one where the Spectral Harpers used to be) She will rejoin and this ends the scene. LD31: 'Ah, the dawning of our day, though it is very rarely that we match our sleep to the cycle of day or night.' Choose: 'We don't see the sunlight often. Sorry about that.' 'Besides, do I strike you as a person that would adjust well with a strict timeline?' Choose: 'No need to. No sunrise would ever compare with your beauty in the moonlight.' 'Such talk! Have you found some poor apprentice bard to draft you lines, or are you practicing on the maidens we meet?' Choose: 'Oh, you sting my heart when you say such things. Hehe. How cruel you are.' LD32: This one is a scene where Dermin tries to kill Jaheira. Him and his goons are not hard to defeat and you will know that Dermin and Gavalrey were both traitors to the Harper cause. After the battle Jaheira will say, 'I did not wish to do this. I did not. We are in the right, (char name), but why does it still hurt?' Choose option 1 'Heh, you and your jokes make me smile far too often, even when I do not want to. People will think I am getting soft.' Choose option 1 LD33: This dialogue occurs before you go to sleep. Jaheira says: 'It is about time we rested. I have seen enough waking hours thank you very much.' Choose option that says, 'I was not aware that morale was so low, what can I do to make you happy?' 'I do not want to be happy. I want to be angry and feel bad about it.' Choose option, 'If I knew what was wrong I could help.' 'Stop being so damned reasonable. Get mad and say you won't stand for it. Act like you should!' Choose option 1 'None of this would happen if you accepted your evil heritage. I would not have sided with you. I would not have fought for you. I would not have...' Choose option 2 'If I was wrong, the dead would have died for just reasons. So many...that are dead and we are the cause. How can all those people have been wrong?' Choose option 2 'I should be happy, but I am not. Even with all we have done to make things right, I am still troubled.' Choose option 1 LD34: 'What? What is it you want?' Choose option 1 'Well?' Choose option 1 'Isn't that ridiculous? The bastard was putting people in danger for nothing and I feel guilty for ending it!' Choose option 2 LD35: 'You needn't keep a distance between us. I am in less of a mood now.' Choose option 1 'I do not blame you. Such trouble I have been. Simple feelings made more difficult by the strangest things. I hope I have not harmed your view of me.' Choose option 1 'Know that I care for you, even if I do not show it well. If this meant nothing it would have been easy to deal with. Small consolation I know.' Choose option 2 LD35: This dialogue comes after you sleep. Jaheira says: 'I have...had a realization. I had been walking with my eyes downcast for so long I had forgotten the beauty of the land.' After all we have seen, I had thought never to feel the warmth of nature again..' Choose option 1 'Forests, grasslands, they have been in harmony for untold years, complimenting not competing. I have walked by many but had forgotten. They stir my soul.' Choose option 1 'I forgot that balance does not mean conformity, equilibrium does not need to sacrifice variety. Dermin forgot that too. Difference does not have to be chaos.' Choose option 1 '(char name), I care for you. I have not always shown as such, and my words may seem harsh on occasion, but my feelings are true just the same.' Choose option 1 'Perhaps this changes nothing, perhaps everything. I don't care anymore. My heart cannot have nature within and be ashamed as well.' Choose option 1 LD35: 'We have to be nearing our goal. It has been a long journey and we have been through so much. I hope this does not end up all being for naught.' Choose option 2 'There can be no mercy for this creature. What he has done is unforgivable.' Choose option 2 'Remarkably, we wouldn't be this close without him. We might have parted company once we left Baldur's Gate and I would still...well things would be different. Choose option 1 LD36: This scene is when Jaheira asks you to have sex with her. Decline in a nice manner otherwise the romance will be all for naught. Don't worry I am still here to guide you! Jaheira will say this when the sex scene is about to start: '(char name) as we learn of our situation I want to say...that there is much to come, and I find I need your company more and more. You are a great comfort at this time.' Choose option 1 'I know. We are great friends...and more. Your words ease my thoughts, and many is the time we have saved one another in battle. We have grown quite close.' Choose option 2 'Stay with me tonight, (char name). If...if you wish. Choose option 1. After all there is only one option! 'No, but I am less sure of many things these days. I worry less about it though. I will set aside my hesitation if you will.' Choose option 2 LD37: 'We are ready to move on? I think it's best that we get an early start.' Choose option 1 LD38: This is the last act for Jaheira's romance!! You don't have to choose anything but the guy 'Terminsel' comes back and asks Jaheira some questions. After this you have got Jaheira!! Yay! I didn't have to use the CLUAconsole for this. I was in Athkala for this, in the docks districts actually. The other time I met 'Telminsel' who's really Elminster by the way, was in the Druid Grove in my old game. Don't worry I will keep on testing different things out for you guys so I hope to keep you guys posted!! By the way you must also have a reputation of at least 14 otherwise Jaheira will not get her Harper Pin. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------- 3.3 Viconia Profile: Elven Drow. Perhaps the fittest bird in the entire game out of Jaheira and Aerie, although I reckon Jaheira and Viconia are equally as pretty. She's a bit dominant and enjoys nothing more but to antagonize you and lead you on. She is also very aggressive and being Drow that also means she is very ruthless as you will discover as the love dialogues go on. If perchance you side with Bodhi in Chapter 3, she will urge you to do the more evil of the tasks when Bodhi asks you to choose between the two. Arguably one of the hardest to get you will most likely be frustrated at her changes in her mood towards you. She's a cleric and a pretty good one at that, and if you get the Crom Faeyr for her she will use it quite well as a mid line attacker/defender, somebody that would go well putting her between the frontline fighters and the mages at the back, to finish off those beasts that may have managed to evade your fighters. Diff: She's the most difficult out of the three. Hints: You will have to find a neat balance between making fun of her, getting angry and being sensitive. One usual tactic I have is to be relatively harsh to her at the beginning of the romance and then when she talks of her experience in the Underdark and on the surface show some caring and consideration. For starters you must not seem weak in Viconia's eyes otherwise she will despise you. Thus, always choose options that seem to make you a more courageous and daring man that you are. She will think that if you are too nice to her she will be disgusted claiming this to be your weakness. However once she starts talking about her brother who saved her from Lloth, you must be understanding and sensitive. At this point you must always get her to continue on her story and show some real consideration for her brother and for her. Other than that there are really nothing much to say about this romance. The only fighting action that ever comes out of this romance is the appearance of a Handmaiden who will appear to kill Viconia, after you have defeated her, you are on your way to victory - the ending of the romance and the fact that she does not want to go out with you because she is afraid that she will endanger you. Whatever she says at the last dialogue of the romance, the break up is inevitable but you must not let her go from the party. Keeping her in the party means that the romance will have finished successfully even if she claims that you and her will never be able to go out again because of your differences. Steps: LD1: 'So...what draws you to this part of Faerun? Amn? Athkalata? I seem to recall you mentioning some mission or some other bother.' Choose option 2 'How are you going to hunt down these culprits who ambushed you? Vermin rarely leave scent or footstep.' Choose option 1 LD2: 'It's a strange time along this Sword Coast. The brink of war was averted, but the countryside remains hazardous to the citizenry.' Choose option 1 'The war your half brother nearly started. What do you think I was speaking of? Choose option 1 'Perhaps 'his' war died. That does not mean that other conflicts won't arise. Perhaps I ramble on, if you wish I'll stop bothering you.' Choose option 1 'It has been trying past endurance (char name) (sigh).' Choose option 1 'My neighbour was Roran Midfallow, a stout sun burnt farmer. We spoke often and allowed the male to bring me supplies that I needed but could not acquire.' Choose option 1 'I had grown weak in my trust. They chortled as I lost consciousness saying how easy it had been and congratulating each other on a fine...fine catch.' Choose option 1 'I split the coffin lid and let the earth in. I clawed to the surface, pain did not slow me...I would not let weakness deter me from vengeance.' Choose option 1 'He dropped to his knees in shock, which afforded me height advantage as I caved his head with a miner's mallet.' Choose option 1 LD3: 'I wish to...apologize...for unburdening myself upon you before. I was so foolish to be weak in Beregost, and worse yet to speak to you about it.' Choose option 2 'My entire existence has been thus since I left the Underdark. Surfacers hate the Drow without relent, and I erred in thinking otherwise even for a moment.' Choose option 2 LD4: 'I have been watching you for a time as we travel. You have a pleasing look about you, I think. The sort of musculature that would make a woman swoon with desire.' Choose option 1 'Perhaps. And what do you think of Viconia hmmm? Does her ebony glow spur lustful thoughts? Does her sharp beauty give you singular twinges of desire?' Choose option 2 LD5: 'I have been thinking a little. I have been thinking of the time I spent with the rivvil...the humans...and I have found nothing redeeming or worthwhile in them. Choose option 2 'Name one surface dweller who has treated me with ANY civility!' Choose option 2 LD6: 'So...it must take a very driven man to lead his life always on the road.' Choose option 3 'Yes, I have noticed the type of man that you are. Intense, determined, strong...all the qualities I have grown to like most colnbluth exist in you.' Choose option 1 'Our long lives are static, we feel no urgency. Despite appearance, we become complacent. If the Drow had your drive...it would be a Second Age of conquest!' Choose option 1 'It is unfortunate that most of the good traits of the colnbluth are held in pale little lives no longer than a firefly's. Here and there they flicker, then sad death.' Choose option 1 LD7: 'I have been thinking, and I think that I may have been exceedingly harsh in my treatment of you once again.' Choose option 1 'I have toyed with your feelings unfairly, placing you down with the other males I have known...and you have not been like them. It was...wrong of me.' Choose option 2 LD8: 'Have I ever told you about how I survived when I first fled to the surface?' Choose option 1 'There I was hunted by the dirthiir...surface elves...and their honed hatred drove me even further. I was sure I would perish, never to see the Underdark again.' Choose option 1 'Does it amuse you that I had to run my dark hands through his sweaty folds and tickle him artfully with my tongue, that he exerted himself wildly as I passionately bit his shoulder?' Choose option 3 'Oh do not look at me in such a manner. Does your manhood wilt from talk of using Drow knowledge of the erotic to survive in your world? Is it so terrible?' Choose option 1 LD9: 'Tell me...has there been anyone special to you? A thief of your heart? Choose option 2 'Never a special one who has waited for her hero's return? The idea has value. I myself, hope to retire to a home that doesn't change by the day.' Choose option 3 'You think so? I cannot wait for the final act of this play, then...I am sure it will be worth waiting for.' Choose option 1 'Your heart is heavy with lust and burning desire, and beats proudly and strongly...but shall it be mine or another's? Choose option 2 LD10: 'What was your life like before you were an adventurer? Didn't it seem simpler? Less complicated? Choose option 1 'Didn't it seem simpler, easier in flavour? There were less entanglements, far less chaos. We weren't always exploring some dank, ruined place.' Choose option 3 'Do you? And do you think that such excitement will grip your sense forever? Is there no longing for peace within you (char name)?' Choose option 3 'It would be nice, wouldn't it (char name)? To leave the insidious schemes and psychopathic for madmen for others to battle and prevail over?' Choose option 2 'That is an offer worth bearing witness to. It merits serious consideration (char name). Choose option 2 'I will definitely consider its value and place in my life (char name). I appreciate your words of friendship as well...it is not words I am familiar with.' Choose option 1 LD11: 'Hmmm...I am wondering this: do you ever entertain the notion of marriage?' Choose option 2 'To commit to one person in all matter? It seems a bizarre internment to me, tantamount to slavery.' Choose option 1 'Variety is the spice of life. The drudgery of having the same partner...it would have to be a unique and special person indeed.' Choose option 3 'From what I have seen. Surface custom is not so different from ours. Of course, Drow culture allows for 'husbands' to be disposed and replaced.' Choose option 2 'Perhaps. I haven't devoted much thought to it, though I have noticed that the role of male and female are reversed on the surface.' Choose option 1 LD12: 'I have been thinking about the Divinity that flows through your veins.' 'Does it fire your ambitions (char name)? Is there a lust within you superceding mere passion, a desire to lord over others as a conqueror and superior?' Choose option 1 LD13: 'Please disregard the things I said to you earlier. They were ill conceived. You...you are not drow and not worthy of such insults.' Choose option 2 LD14: 'I have been told little about this 'Bhaal' of yours, but I am unfamiliar with him. Among the drow, we are taught nothing of other gods, and little enough about our own gods beyond Lloth.' Choose option 2 'Yes, gods like Ghaundaur, and Vhaeraun hold some power, but Lloth is the strongest by far and forbids even their mention.' Choose option 1 'Nightsinger is a mistress of darkness and loss. I was born of darkness and have lost much: my faith, my home...Shar has returned much. I am greatful to Her.' Choose option 1 'It is difficult to describe. The Underdark is a place of great evil and danger, but also of beauty and wonder. Would you like me to tell you of it? Choose option 1 'But these images pale before memories of the Spider Queen, and the worship I began so young. Beauty is difficult to find in the blood that I let flow in her name.' Choose option 1 'He screamed as the blade entered, and split blood when I punctured his lungs. To the delight of the matron mothers I pulled out his heart still beating.' Choose option 1 LD15: 'Have I told you how it is that I came to flee from the underdark?' Choose option 1 'One of the lesser priestesses noticed my hesitation and she took the babe's life, herself, eager to usurp my place in Lloth's favour.' Choose option 2 'But I refused. I was disgusted with my Queen, so I cursed my mother and endangered my House. In my naivete I thought that I would survive after my actions.' Choose option 1 LD16: 'I am ready to continue my tale if you are willing to hear it.' Choose option 2 'I would have died, in fact, were it not for...if it were not for my brother. My poor, foolish brother. Valas... Choose option 2 LD17: 'Tell me something do you have much of a family?' Choose option 2 'I cannot understand the relationships...the closeness that the families of the surface retain with each other. In the Underdark, things are very different...' Choose option 2 'There are normally no...'brothers,' although some males are favoured than others. Most simply exist to serve the Queen and House but this is not always the case.' Choose option 3 'In the end...he saved my life. He...he prevented my sacrifice and killed our mother giving me the opportunity to flee. Choose option 1 LD18: 'My... brother...is finally what made me break my faith fully from the Spider Queen. His actions, I mean...saving me from sacrifice.' Choose option 2 'I had begun to question Lloth's appetite for power and absolute devotion with the child, but I did not cast her out of my heart fully until Valas saved my life.' Choose option 1 'I was forced to flee the Underdark, making my way quickly to the surface before the other drow could stop me, cursing and crying the entire way.' Choose option 1 LD19: 'If you would...if you would please sit with me for a moment, I would be thankful. I find myself uncharacteristically overcome with anxiety and am not...eager...to be alone for the evening.' Choose option 1 'I have been...thinking of Lloth. She is cruel, not known for forgiveness...and always takes revenge...collecting the lapsed and fallen. I know she will come for me.' Choose option 2 'It will mean...it will mean nothing. Lloth's reach is far...and I fear there is no escaping it... Choose option 1 '(char name), I am frightened to my very core! Do not leave me alone! Stay with me this night. I...I need to feel your flesh next to mine, to embrace your strength...' Choose option 3 LD20: 'Well I see that you are finally awake. I hope that your pathetic exertions last night brought at least one of us some measure of pleasure.' Choose option 2 'It was not. I have seen limp and blind fish with more virility than you. I would have preferred the crude pawings of a goblin than suffered your rough hands.' Choose option 2 'Do not deny your salivating male desires, fool. I found the thought of your touch pleasing, but now I know better...you are nothing more than a boy in a man's clothing!' Choose option 3 LD21: 'You have no impetus to carve an empire, and you are certainly no Lord of Murder. I have decided you are weak and cowardly, not fit for the godsblood flowing within you.' Choose option 2 'You nauseate me (char name)...is it not reason enough? I look upon you and I see something that I would rather squish under my boot.' Choose option 2 LD22: 'Do not stand so close to me. It is bad enough that I have to smell your stench on the occasional breeze...must I also bask in your rancid aura? Choose option 1 LD23: 'I have a confession to make to you. Give me your ears for a moment and listen, if you possess the sense.' Choose option 2 'So then. What do you think of that (char name)? What do you think of me now?' Choose option 4 'I am a creature of dark lusts you fool! Why are you not disgusted by this?! Turn away from me, spit on me and curse my name I command you!' Choose option 3 or 2. I have chosen 2 and the dialogue ends. LD24: *this is triggered by sleeping* '(sigh)I...I cast my white flag before you. I can struggle no more. You have...you have defeated me.' Choose option 1 'If you will have me, I shall not push you away again...stay with me tonight, (char name), let us be together in earnest. Let me savor the unfamiliar fear that goes with this trust.' Choose option 4 LD25: 'A good morning to you. Or at least, as close to morning as we come with these strange hours that we keep. I trust your exertions were worthwhile? Choose option 3 'You are not so terrible, (char name), for a male.' Choose option 2 LD26: 'Tell me...did Gorion tell you many tales of the Underdark? Did he perchance mention some of the races that lived below?' 'That and the delight they seem to get from cracking open your skull like a hen's egg and drinking everything swimming inside your head.' Choose option 2 'The first sign of Kuo Toa are the reek of dead fish. Head away from the water they need to survive. Risking a fight is to flirt with the Cold Maiden' Choose option 1 LD27: 'Do your people have any kind of rite of passage into adulthood? I am curious.' Choose option 2 'He thought me a beggar seeking guidance. He was surprised when he learned I was Drow, but not as much when I used his holy mace to cave his forehead.' Choose option 1 'And the act pleased Lloth. Pleasing the Spider Queen was our ethos and our mantra...girding ourselves to conquer the other races.' Choose option 1 LD28: 'What about the time before the Life? Before the endless travels, days in the dark with death on your heels? Who was your closes ally then?' Choose option 2 (what I did anyway but I don't think it really matters) 'Why do you consider him such a good teacher and close friend?' Choose option 2 LD29: 'Have you devoted any thought to what you will do once this whole business is over with?' Choose option 2 'I have thought on the future myself. With a little ambition I see us carving an empire, ruling a small kingdom, and living in the hedonistic luxury that we are meant to!' Choose option 2 LD30: 'We are to stop now and rest are we? I suppose that is good and well, as I am exhausted nearly to the point of dropping. Come, then, my mrann d'ssiniss, and let us get our coupling over with quickly.' Choose option 2 'I may be tired, but I look forward to showing the arts I learned as a Drow. I hold a degree...of...affection for you (char name). How else am I supposed to show this?' Choose option 2 (Please note, because I am extremely drained today I can only be doing with the quick but effective measure. You can choose option 1 which is better and then you just have to play it by common sense really!) LD31: 'You are awake I see. That is good. I have been watching you for some time...thinking. I wish to share my thoughts with you.' Choose option 1 In the next dialogue Viconia basically explains that she wants to break up with you. This is inevitable and so don't worry about it. Choose option 2 LD32: 'I have an odd feeling. I do not...think...I have ever felt it like this before...' Choose option 2 'It is almost as if a dark whisper is traveling Faerun, searching, seeking out...something...I...fear it is searching for me.' Choose option 1 'It...no...there it goes. The feeling...has vanished. But that does not mean it will not return. I...I am suddenly quite cold inside...' Choose option 1 LD33: *The fight with the demon thing and the handmaiden! Whooo hoooo! Showdown time! After the battle Choose option 2 Then Choose option 1 LD34: 'Back away from me, you pathetic fool! Do not cast your eyes upon me! I told you to let me be ilbilith!! Are you so insipid and moronic that you cannot understand such simple instructions?! Choose option 1 'You...you are an affront to me...I wish this had never come to be!' Choose option 1 LD35: 'This...is not working...between us. It will never work, and I think you know this. There can only be one outcome. This can only end poorly.' Choose option 2 'We must poison our hearts, my ssinssrigg...we must do what is necessary and cleave us apart before it is too late.' Choose option 2 'There is no way, (char name) you know that.' Choose option 2 ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Anomen's Romance ------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------- 4 Anomen ------------- Profile: Human dual class fighter/cleric. He has exceptional strength and constitution, making him suitable to frontline, especially for the early part of the game. He is primarily cleric though, and will reach level 21 cleric at the experience cap of 2.95 million. IMHO, he is one of the best NPC in the game. His fighter class gives him 2 attacks per round, lots of HP and better THAC0. His turn undead blasts undeads into pieces, including vampires and liches (at high enough level). Since wisdom only gives extra low level spells (there is no limit to casting level 6 and 7 spells), he is a good cleric even with his initial wisdom of 12. Most of the complains about him centres on his personality. He is a bit arrogant and too righteous for some people's tastes. When you first met him in the Copper Coronet, he was trying to prove himself worthwile to become a full knight of the Order of the Most Radiant Heart. He was a bit emotional before his knight test, but after the test, he became very sweet. Diff: Very easy. The correct repsonses are very obvious. Just remember not to be rude to him. Hints: Some time after he joined your party (after LD6, see step by step walkthrough below), a messager would come to inform Anomen of his sister's death. To make him a knight later, persuade him to follow the law; to make him fail, kill Saerk to avenge his sister. This makes a difference to Anomen's skills. If he becomes a knight, he will gain four points of wisdom and have his alignment change to Lawful Good (LG). If he fails, his alignment will be changed to Chaotic Neutral (CN). Some time after this (after LD12), Anomen would tell you that he felt it was time to take the test. Go to the Order of the Most Radiant Heart with him. After the test, the romance took two separate paths depanding on whether Anomen passes the knight test. Some time after the knight test, another messager would come. The content of the message depended on his alignment. If he was a knight, the magistrate had found evidence that Saerk indeed was involved with the murder of Moira. Otherwise, Moira had been killed by a pair of thugs. No matter what you said, you could not stop Anomen from leaving the party. Follow him immediately to either Saerk's house in the Bridge District (LG) or Delryn Estate in the Government district (CN) depending on his alignment. Make a save before you enter Saerk's house or Delryn Estate. This is the only difficult part of the romance. The right response is not obvious and if you say anything wrong, Anomen will leave the game forever. Basically persuade him not to kill Saerk(LG) or his father(CN). Tell him that you love him and the love you two have will strengthen him. Steps: (I played the game twice with both the LG and CN Anomen. I only started making notes the second time round with the CN one. Therefore the following walkthrough only shows the CN path. However, the two paths are identical until quite late in the romance and the Saerk/Cor Delryn revenge choices are mostly the same even though they are directed to two different people.) LD1: 'Prithee, my lady...it fills me with no small amount of wonder that you have not asked me of my journey ere we met? Choose option 3 'There is precious little to tell, although my few adventures have been glorious, indeed. Choose option 1 'Aye, it has been a stuggle to prove my worth to the order. Choose option 3 'Hmph. I find it hard to believe that one woman alone could have performed such deeds Choose option 2 'Well, of course you had fellow companion who aided you then as now. LD2: (If you have Keldorn in your party, he will join in this conversation.) 'How much do you know of my Order of the Most Radiant Heart?' Choose option 1 or 2 'You have heard of it? That is good. Keldorn '(Sigh) Once again, Anomen, you follow pride rather than your head. 'I have long since passed the time when I needed a knight of the Order to answer my every thought, Sir Keldorn. Choose option 1 'Hmph. You're entitled to your opinion, my lady, but I think there is more that can be done to fight chaos than simply combatting the most obvious evils with a sword.' Keldorn 'The Order has its place, Anomen...and government is not it. 'Perhaps, Sir Keldorn. I shall ponder your words, but I still believe the flaw exists in those who do not think of new ways to combat chaos.' LD3: 'I understand that Gorion was very much like a father to you. Choose option 1 'Ah, I see. I must admit, my lady, that I am rather jealous of you. Choose option 3 'I think you might have at that. LD4: 'I...I wish to apologise for so abruptly ending our conversation yesterday. Choose option 1 'I am glad to hear of it, I...I think of my sister, sometimes, alone in the manor with my father. Choose option 1 'The Order does not pay well, my lady. Choose option 1 'That is good. It is a terrible thing then, that she has been taken away. LD5: 'Have I told you how I became a priest?' Choose option 1 'As I've said before, I approached the Order without the benefit of my father's sponsorship. Choose option 1 'Hmph! It is that easy, is it? LD6: 'My lady...I feel most terrible about my burst of temper the previous day. Choose option 1 'I am most thankful, (char name). Choose option 1 'I am glad that you are so kind to me. LD7: A message from Lord Cor Delryn, Anomen's father, arrived. Anomen's sister, Moira, was murdered. Take Anomen to his family home, Delryn Estate, in the Government District. To make him a knight later, persuade him to follow the law; to make him fail, kill Saerk to avenge his sister. LD8: 'My lady? Might I bend your ear for a moment?' Choose option 1 'I have been thinking much on my Test, as of late. Choose option 3 'Because I do not know my own conscience, my lady. LD9: 'I have come to understand a few things of your past, and I have a question, if I might be permitted to pose it...' Choose option 1 'I have been told a few things of your travels in the north and in Baldur's Gate in particular. Choose option 1 'You...speak so carefully, my lady, because you have been accused of some manner of relation with the dead god of murder, Yes? Choose option 2 'But you have not always succeeded, Yes? LD10: 'My lady, I have been pondering your situation for some time...this mater of your peculiar heritage...and I find myself filled with admiration and wonder for you, truly.' Choose option 2 'Yes..always a struggle. LD11: 'I...I am truly sorry, my lady. Choose option 1 'You must think me very odd to speak about my feelings and urges in such plain way, but in the Order it is paramount to control these things. Choose option 2: You should not worry about these things so much. (Choose another option if you have persuaded Anomen not to kill Saerk.). (His response is dependant on the option you picked before.) 'Mmm. Your view of the Order's tenets are obvious. LD12: 'My Test is coming very soon, my lady. I will need to go to the headquarters of the Order and speak to Ryan Trawl. Choose option 2 'I...have been thinking on what we have spoken of. Choose option 1 'I hope that you are right, my lady. **Take Anomen to the Order of Radiant Heart for his test now. LD13: The knight test. The outcome of the test depends on your choice of whether to avenge Moira's death earlier. ~~~~~~~~ NOTE: From this point on, the romance is split into two separate paths. Only the CN path is shown here. ~~~~~~~~ LD14: 'I have been thinking about Sir Ryan Trawl and the Order and I have decided I am well rid of them! I cannot believe I wasted so much of my life on such ignorant fools!' Choose option 2: That's good to see...You could use a little freedom, I think 'Aye, I could at that! Too long has this poor knight frowned and growled...I'm enough of it, to tell the truth. Choose option 2: Yes, this is much better. 'Well said and much appreciated by this formerly dour knight, my lady! (Anomen is now basically your boyfriend. His ROMANCEACTIVE should be 2 if you check it with either CLUAConsole or ShadowKeeper.)

THIS IS THE END OF ANOMEN's ROMANCE. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Codes ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Try using the cheat codes to speed up the romance really fast. These are... CLUAConsole:SetGlobal("JAHEIRAROMANCE","GLOBAL","1") CLUAConsole:SetGlobal("AERIEROMANCE","GLOBAL","1") CLUAConsole:SetGlobal("VICONIAROMANCE","GLOBAL","1") You might need shadow keeper for Jaheria's romance. Like when Jaheria stops talking after even you sleep or complete the special events, fix the lovetalk value under the effects value to 59. When Elminster doesn't show up, type: CLUAConsole:SetGlobal("TERMINSELAPPEAR","GLOBAL","0") That will make elminster appear and conclude the romance.
