    It's been a while since I played BG2, longer since I took Edwin with me. Are these the same scrolls Edwin was looking for that turned him into a woman or was that something else?

    They are indeed. The Nether scrolls are probably the most coveted items for arcane practitioners in the FR setting. It will also become a point of contention between Edwin and Ayden in BG2 when I get to it.

    Too bad they can't just have the party cleric or even thief (if he can be trusted) make a copy of them so they can share.
    Yes, I know it would be like copying a spell scroll which is why they can't.

    Actually, there are ways to copy spell scrolls, but that's kind of besides the point. Nether scrolls are special in that they completely resist any sort of copying and they even display different information for different people and different text every time you read them. They're basically an inexhaustible font of arcane information that's every mage's wet dream. :shake:

    There are indeed ways to do so, which is why I specifically said the Cleric or Thief, since they generally cannot copy arcane spell scrolls.
    My point was that it was not as simple as taking the scroll and a blank scroll and simply copying what is there. With mundane text you can do this even if you don't read the language in question, although it can be more difficult with a different alphabet. With magic scrolls it isn't as easy because of magic.
    Actually, I probably should have said "fighter or paladin" instead of thief.

    P.S. I honestly don't recall the Nether Scrolls in the Forgotten Realms Campaign Guide. Were they in a supplement not included in the standard boxed set or is it just my bad memory since I haven't read the books cover to cover in 30 years?

    I don't think there's any mention of them in the campaign guide. I think they're first described in detail in Netheril: Empire of Magic (obviously, since it's the civilization's origin story) and then feature more prominently in books after that.

    I don't think I've ever seen that book, much less read it.
    I should have mentioned that my group played 2nd edition.

    That's the 2e splat book. It's quite good, actually.
