BG2: ToB (Male PC) Romances Guide by Felinoid (Submitted) 43kb Download
This is a guide that maps out (in their entirety) the ToB portion of the three romances available to male PCs - Aerie, Jaheira and Viconia. However, the author did not go into the detail that Extremist did with his extensive FAQ on the SoA romances, so if you need basic help with romances in general, you’ll have to refer to his guide instead.

BG2: ToB Sarevok Alignment Change Guide by Felinoid (Submitted) 15kb Download
This FAQ is rather short and covers only one tiny facet of an enormous game. The author made it mostly so that he could be sure he’d be getting what he was looking for, and also to settle some disputes over whether or not you can make Sarevok change alignment even if you make him swear an oath.

BG2: SoA & ToB NPC Interactions Guide by Dave Milward (Submitted) 263kb Download
From the author: Surfing the boards at both sorcerers.net and other sites, a lot of gamers out there are curious about how the various NPCs interact with each other. “Can I have both X and Y together into a party without them killing each other?” “I always use Jaheira, so what is Cernd’s personality like?” “How does my favorite NPC interact with those other NPCs?” So on and so forth. Well, after a very gradual attrition approach on my part, I’ve finally put together a guide that includes all NPC random banters. Enjoy...
(Aldeth the Foppish) Idiot’s Guide to the NPC’s (Submitted) 37kb Download
This guide was made as comprehensive as possible. At least two complete typed pages are devoted to every character. Yes, there is the run of the mill information regarding character statistics, class, alignment, starting equipment, etc. However, most guides focus exclusively on how good or bad the character is at the beginning of the game when you first acquire them. This is a flawed analysis because A.) It’s based solely on the author’s opinion and B.) It doesn’t take into account of how good this character gets in the middle of the game, and what you can expect from him by the end of the game. As such, the author intends to stay away from those philosophies. This guide is not a simple guide that says either, “This character is great” or “This character sucks”. Everyone will agree that every single NPC in the game has their own individual strengths and weaknesses, and the people who claim that a certain character “sucks” have most likely either failed to take advantage of their strengths, failed to account for the weaknesses, or most likely, both.

This is a creature listing for Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn. Note that this FAQ does NOT apply for the Throne of Baal expansion set.
