    Hello again. I can't find the entrance to the undercellars for the invitation to Eltan's party. I pretty much searched the sewers; I guess I must have missed something. Could someone tell me where it is or point me toward what I have to do next? I got out of prison with Neb and I killed crythndia on the top floor of the iron throne tower and got Sarevok's diary along with 3 notes but since then I've been lost. Just now someone killed a commoner and my reputation went to 10 so I need some help fast...thanks in advance.

    There's a few different ways to get to the undercellars, the most simple one is simply taveling to the NE district of baldur's gate and entering the Blushing Mermaid tavern.
    Once inside, take the stairs down on the left side and you'll be in the undercellar, the guard at the entrance will charge you 10 gp to enter though.

    If you want to enter through the sewers (maybe because the flaming fist are still searching for you) that's also possible there are a few possible exits this way - one is to go to the sewer map underneath the East district of baldurs gate, then take the middle-most tunnel leading to the left side of the map, past where the ogre-mage with the carrion crawlers was (or is, if you have not defeated him yet.)

    Another entrance is in the sewers underneath the central district of baldur's gate - this time take the southern-most tunnel that veers of to the west of the map.

    The last entrance is in the sewers underneath the west district, take the northmost tunnel that veers off to the southwest.

    links lead to the dudleyville walkthrough, which shows the area maps with annotations on which exits lead where if you need them.

    I'd highly recommend you download Dan Simpson's guide from either here or GameFAQs.com. It reveals a lot of these locations for you and is in the form of a nice text file that you can display on even the oldest computers without relying on an internet connection. Heck, when I first got Baldur's Gate, I used to display it on my Apple IIGS.

    Don't get me wrong, we don't mind you asking for help like this, but the answer to both this and your earlier question were in the guide, so it's usually a good idea to check out GameFAQs.com before resorting to posting.

    I know I've asked questions about the locations of things here, but usually it isn't covered in the guide or not easy to search for because the keywords are too general.

    A rule of thumb I've developed over the last 20 years when using GameFAQs is to check out the three biggest FAQs for the game in question, and if they don't have the answer, then post.

    Walkthroughs and guides have an unfortunate downside on making you easily dependent on them. I don't think there's anything wrong with asking for help, even if there is an obvious answer.

    True enough, I try very hard not to use one the first time through a game. I beat both Baldur's Gates and both Icewind Dales without a guide. However, if I get really stuck on a game, usually with something stupid like what you posted about (no offense, I'm more criticizing myself) I will look for a guide when my frustration has peaked, find that one bit I need, then put the guide away.

    After I beat the game the first time, I then like to go back and look through the guide, and go for what TVtropes calls "100% completion" where I find all the hidden secrets I missed.

    I usually find lots of stuff that make the game MUCH easier the second time through, even discarding meta knowledge.
