 Wands last for 20 uses, and then fizzle away.  Although no way exists to
 directly check how many charges are left in a wand, you can try to sell it at
 a shop.  The more the shopkeeper will pay, the more charges you have left.

iv. Spells

v. NPC's

stay put wherever you put them.  To see the X,Y coordinate of where you are,
press "L".  The top left of any map is x 0 y 0.

 Khalid - Jaheira
 Xzar - Montanon

 Note: To get one of these in the pair without the other, simply send the other
       person into a building (the person you want to get rid of), and then
       reform the party to kick them out.  This way they can't come up to you
       and talk to you.

vi. General Strategies
Charisma is your friend:
 So what does Charisma really get you?  Well if you have a low charisma you may
 not be able to get NPC's to join you, if you pass a quest, the treasure may
 not be as good as it normally would be, (or there may be no treasure at all!)
 and shops may charge you more.  So don't skimp out on the charisma.

Low Dexterity Not So Bad:
 If your stats just aren't turning out so good, consider skimping on Dexterity.
 Why?  There are Gaunlets of Dexterity out there that bring you up to a full
 18!  Don't skimp out too much since you still have to fight to get those
 gauntlets.  (the gauntlets are in the gnollish fortress)

Fighting Battles:
 Let them come to you.  When you first see an enemy, your first instinct may be
 to run over to it and slaughter it.  Well don't.  Let it come to you, and
 attack it there.  This way if there are 50 more of these creatures, they won't
 see you and won't attack.  At least until you are ready for them.

Save a Lot:
 There are 3 times when you should definately save the game.  When you win a
 battle, before you go to sleep, and everywhere else.  You never know when you
 will go to a new area, have your best warrior charmed, and have half your
 party killed.  So save often.  Also don't just save over the same slot over
 and over, use at least 10 slots.  This is especially necessary in Durlag's
 tower.  This also means you should probably avoid the Quick Save.

 No matter where you rest, you won't get very many HP from resting.  So before
 you rest make sure to (after you save it, if you are not in an inn) heal
 everyone with spells.  You get all magic memorized during the night, you do
 not, however, get all your HP's.

The Guard:
 When you rob someone, they might summon the guard.  Keep that in mind (you
 will want to save the game before you rob someone).  Also bear in mind that
 the guard is strangely NOT summoned if you kill someone, like in an inn.


1. Candlekeep
Companions (NPC's): none (although Imoen joins later)

 - Buy Equipment in the Inn (you start right by it)
 - Talk to Gorion to leave Candlekeep (x 2683 y 1756)
   Note: Once you leave Candlekeep, you can't come back.

 - Phlydia's Book
   A little NE of the Inn, you will find Phlydia.  She has lost her book, The
   History of Halruaa  Go east, you will find a shed with hay and a cow.  Check
   one of the bales of hay for the book.  Return to Phlydia for your reward,
   a Lynx Eye Gem and 50 exp.
   Phlydia: Candlekeep (x 1601 y 311)
   Book: Candlekeep (x 3245 y 289)

 - Firebead's Scroll
   Inside the Inn is Firebead Elvenhair.  He has lent a scroll to a scholar,
   Tethtoril, near the Candlekeep central area and wants you to retrieve it.
   Do so for a small reward, a Healing Potion, 50 exp and he casts Protection
   from Evil on you.
   Firebead: Candlekeep, Candlekeep Inn (x 198 y 404)
   Tethtoril: Candlekeep (x 3154 y 1304)

 - Fuller's Bolts
   If you're still in the Inn, buy some bolts, and take them to the barracks.
   There you will give your bolts to Fuller who apparantly can't walk up the
   street to get some himself.  When you talk to Fuller, ask him if he has
   any errands for you to run.  Talk to him again and give him the bolts for
   your reward, a dagger +1 and 50 exp.
   Barracks: Candlekeep (x 1570 y 2447)

 - Hull's Sword & Medicine
   While you are still in the barracks, in the NW corner is a chest.  Open the
   chest and take the contents (a sword, and a bottle).  Now take the sword
   to Hull, who is by the main gate.  Talk to him, and he'll tell you that he
   forgot his sword.  Talk to him again to give it to him.  You get 20gp and
   50 exp for your trouble.
   Barracks: Candlekeep (x 1570 y 2447)
   Hull: Candlekeep (x 3662 y 2431)

 - Nessie's Green Elixer
   Now we're going to finish up these subquests by going up to Nessie (the cow,
   she's by where you got the book for Phlydia).  Talk to Dreppin (if you
   didn't talk to him before, you'll have to talk to him 3 times) and he'll
   take the potion from you, and you get 50 exp.
   Dreppin: Candlekeep (x 3264 y 430)

 - Killing Rats
   Talk to Reevor by the Storehouse, and he'll pester you to kill the rats in
   the storeroom.  Go inside and do just that.  Come back out and talk to
   Reevor again to get your reward, 5gp and 50 exp.
   Reevor: Candlekeep (x 4335 y 1454)

Assasination Attempts (it gets its own category...hehe): 2
 - Priest's Quarters (x 2961 y 437)
   Assasins: Shank -- Dagger, 20 exp
 - Bunkhouse (x 2055 y 2668)
   Assasins: Carbos -- Dagger, 20 exp
   Note: If you kill these assasins before they turn red and attack you, you
         get 2 exp.  But at least your reputation doesn't decrease!

 - Learn to Fight
   If you want to learn the battle system of Baldur's Gate in a controlled
   atmosphere, simply talk to the Gatewarden at (x 3065 y 3899) to set up a
   simulated combat experience.  You get no items from it, however, nor do you
   get any experience.

 - Learn to Fight part 2
   Another place to learn to fight is to talk to Jondalar (x 4094 y 1331).  He
   will attack you, you attack back.  Erik will sneak up behind you and shoot
   you with arrows.  Don't worry, they don't damage you.  You get nothing from
   this either.

 - Free Healing Potion
   Go to the healer's (x 3566 y 2932) and talk to the Priest of Oghma there,
   and tell him that you could use a little healing, and he will give you a
   potion of healing.

1a. The Crossroads (2 areas: Area E of Candlekeep, Area S of Friendly Arm Inn)
Companions: Imoen; Xzar and Montanon (x 4546 y 2701)
 I wouldn't bother with Xzar and Montanon here unless you are forming an all
 evil party.

Enemies: Gibberlings, Xvarts, Bandits, Wolves, 1 Ogre (see subquests below)

 - You are now in the area where Gorion was killed, you need to go east, then
   north to get to the Friendly Arm Inn.
   Note: When you first enter the crossroads area, Elminster will talk to you.

 - Chase and the Cliff
   Chase apparantly has nothing to live for, and is going to hurl himself off
   of a cliff.  You can talk him out of it, but it's not readily apparant what
   effect this has on the game.  (btw, no matter what you say to him, he
   doesn't jump.)
   Chase: Area E of Candlekeep (x 1458 y 2412)
 - An Ogre and His Belts
   There is an ogre here who has a belt fetish.  Kill him and take the two
   belts.  The larger looking belt is the Girdle of Masculinity/Femininity
   (changes your gender) and the smaller one is the Girdle of Piercing + 3 vs.
   piercing.  You may want to wait to do this until you have more than 2
   people.  If you want, you can return the Girdle of Piercing to its owner,
   Unshey, in the Friendly Arm Inn (see that section below).
   Ogre: Area S of Friendly Arm Inn (x 4787 y 1665)

 - Search Gorion's Body (area E of Candlekeep)
   You will find some treasure's around where Gorion was killed, including a
   letter that has some clue's about your origin. (x 3149 y 1373)

 - A downed Caravan (area S of Friendly Arm Inn)
   You can check out a destroyed caravan, but there's only 7 gp there to be
   had.  (x 2348 y 3343)

2. Friendly Arm Inn
Companions: Khalid, Jaheira (both First Floor FAI, x 329 y 685)

Enemies: Hobgoblins

 - Beat the assasin, Tarnesh, to gain entrance to the Inn
 - Talk to Khalid and Jaheria and get them to join.  They tell you to go to
   Nashkel to the south to find out about this tainted ore thing.

 - Unshey's Belt
   If you want to part with the Girdle of Piercing (which I wouldn't), talk to
   Unshey in the Friendly Arm Inn to get a reward: History of Tethyr, 95gp, and
   800 exp.
   Unshey: Friendly Arm Inn, Second Floor (x 1190 y 753)

 - The Noble's Golden Pantaloons
   On the third floor of the Friendly Arm Inn you will find a nobleman who
   mistakes you for the laundry service of the inn, and he gives you his
   Golden Pantaloons for washing.  You can't do anything with the pantaloons
   so give them back to the Noble for 100 exp.  Not bad for not doing a thing.
   Noble: Friendly Arm Inn, Third Floor (x 336 y 673)

 - Landrin's Spiders
   Landrin's house in Beregost has been overrun by spiders, and that is why she
   is hiding in the Friendly Arm Inn.  She gives you a bunch of antidotes and
   promises a reward if you bring back the body of the spider, her husbands
   boots, and some wine.  Go to Beregost, and into the house by the Jovial
   Juggler.  Kill the spiders, and take the 3 items and return to Landrin for
   your reward: ??????????????????????????????
   Landrin: Friendly Arm Inn, Third Floor (x 796 y 735)
   Spiders: Beregost (x y )

 - Joia's Flamedance Ring
   Hobgoblins north of the Inn have swiped Joia's flamedance ring.  Kill them
   to get it back.  Joia is in the house just to the west of the outer gate in
   the inner grounds.  She won't give you anything, but you get 400 exp and
   Rep + 1.
   Hobgoblins: Friendly Arm Inn (x 2554 y 292)
   Joia: Friendly Arm Inn (x 1536 y 2484)

 "Dryad" Fighting:
   A dryad (or any other female monster type, such as the Siren) has some nasty
   magical attacks, namely Charm Person, which if used on the right person in
   your party, screws you over.  Nothing worse than having to fight your own
   best fighter.  So if you lose too many people to her, then go back to your
   last save, then send only your best fighter to where the dryad is.  If your
   fighter is charmed, no big deal (enemies won't attack charmed party members,
   so you won't get killed).  Once she is out of the worst magical attacks,
   send in the cavalry.

B. The Gods of the Realm
Cyric -- evil god worshipped by Bassilus to raise the dead, also Mulahey has a
 Cyric Holy Symbol on him.
Helm -- a good god, worshipped by Ajantix.  There's a Helm temple in Nashkal.

 (History of the Dead Three)
Kozah -- ancient god of various chaotic happenings (like earthquakes), there is
 an ancient temple being unearthed of his far to the SW of Beregost, but beware
 the curse!
Mystra -- goddess of magic
Oghma -- there is a temple to Oghma is Candlekeep
Sune -- good god, the Holy Ring is a Sune artifact
Umberlee -- goddess of the Sea, you run into her priestess at the Baldur's Gate
