    Of course those two are dopplegangers in the catacombs... everyone else in there is, so why'd they be an exception? Besides, them changing back to dopplegangers and attacking you should be clue enough.

    [​IMG] Elminster getting his arse kicked? Dream on. That char has been upped to god-like status by TSR you know. He's untouchable. You can even kill him in the game. ;)

    [​IMG] what happens if you attack him then? is he immune to everything? If so is he still immune to having a longsword +1 being put through him from behind?

    [​IMG] Look. ELMINSTER NEVER DIES. He's the most powerful mage in existence. He's more than immortal.
    And he does appear in BG2 I hear. Haven't seen him myself yet though.
    But if he doesn't show up doesn't mean he's dead. He probably has something else to do than running around towns yelling: "Look, I'm still alive. Whee!!".

    Isn't that what weird old men do, though?

    Elminster shows up in BG2 during Jaheira's Harper Quest.

    About 25 days or so after Jaheira is told by Darniem that she is being hunted by Harpers, he will arrive as Terminsel. That's his anagram name for Elminster.

    He will ask Jaheira if what she did was right (leaving the Harpers) and if following a child of Bhaal was the correct thing to do. She says "yes" and Elminster gives her a Harper Pin that has some real nifty powers.

    Syl...

    Yes. He's having a solo jazz performance in the Blue Oyster bar in a few days. If you're lucky, you can still catch it.

    He'll be performing some of the all-time classics such as: Oh the shiny missile o' magic, Why does my wand shoot fire, So cold - a touch from a lich and many others. Be sure to buy the CD too!

    Is there a music video for any of them? That'd be cool.

    Wonder what his voice is like...
     
  19. Sol'Kanar Guest

    Well you can hear his voice briefly if you pause the game when he appears and click on him without anything else selected. It's fun to annoy him.

    Elminster IS a god, that's why he can't be killed that easily. Haven't you guys read all Forgotten Realms-books ??
