    Is it just me or are all the npcs with quests real impatient? Edwin just left me, and I'm IN the gnoll stronghold. As soon as I get to the map, he leaves... quite annoying. And apparently there is no way to stop the npc's internal clocks from ticking, so I guess I'll have to find another mage. What are my options? I'm playing an evil party, so I'd want an at least neutral mage. What alignment are Xan and Dynaheir? Are there any other mages to find? Anyone got another solution to this problem?

    what is your reputation? evil npc's leave if it is too high.

    I think Xan is neutral and Dynaheir is good

    Tiax is a cleric/thief. Quayle, the gnome right outside baldur's gate is a cleric/mage. Quayle is chaotic neutral if i remember right.

    isn't quayle aerie's protector in bg2?

    anyway, I haven't heard of this quayle dude before, is he outside baldur's gate like I can get him without having access to baldur's gate, or inside the gate? I could get Xan, but it seems rough to do all of the mines without a mage.

    Yes, he's Aerie's Protector. He's outside of the city, but you can't reach this area before you make the cloakwood quest.

    That isn't the voice of Edwin? That's the one evil mage (Necromancer) that noone have mentioned, Xzar. He is in the beginning of the game, so I suppose you kicked him out of the party?

    Quayle isn't Aerie's protector, he's her Uncle.

    He's not her real uncle, protector is more fitting. He rescued her from slavery. Anyway, leave this for the BG2 forum.

    Y'know, i took Xzar all around the damn coast with me just so i could see his subplot and i'm rewarded with a few words and off the guy goes saying i have to kill the BlackThorne blokes and i'm majorly peeved!

    Is that there all to it or is there more to the subplot?

    indeed he is.. but I would pick him up again if I could.. I sort of had to kill him to get montaron without xzar, which seemed like a good idea at the time.
