    Hello, I bought SoA about a week ago and I'm in the 3rd chapter and have found myself stuck. It may be a bug, but here's the problem: After finishing the Eyless God quest or whatever it was called, I went back to Mr. Osig to claim my reward, only to find out that he's busy! Well, I tried sleeping and then talking...to no avail. I've tried saving and then reloading (this usually works with other NPCs)...to no avail. I'm now having the same problem with the artist that wants ithilium. AND I solved the skinner murders, but the leutenint won't talk to me! Am I supposed to do something before I can talk to them or something? Help me out please, I can't go on like this!

    If you are using Windows XP, then the official patch is supposed to fix a problem with NPCs appearing busy.

    I had most fun with a Sorceror. But you doe start to take the piss a bit as you get high level.

    That problem is definately sorted by the patch by the way!

    GL HF! :D

    Hmm...I've never tried a sorcerer before (I'm more fond of "book magic") but I guess it would be easier to just choose my spells when I level up rather than having to find/buy the scrolls. But that presents a problem. I don't want to pay for identification, and I don't want to spend one of my choices on identify...and I'm gonna be a good sorcerer. So that means that Nalia is going to have to be in my party until I get Imoen back :( . Is there any other good wizard around?

    If you don't have a problem with using neutral npcs, you can try Jan Jansen. He is a chaotic neutral illusionist/thief, and can be found in the government district.

    A few good wizards mate.

    But also, in Gailen Bayles house (spelling?) upstairs, you find a merchant who sells 'Glasses of Identification' which lets you identify 3 things a day. Easy peasy.

    Can you recall how much those glasses cost? I would really like to get them ASAP so I don't have to have a half-bad wizard in my party. Jan might be a substitute until I get the glasses, but I've heard some bad things about Jan...

    Depends on reputation/charisma etc.

    But usually around 2500 - 3000 for me. It sounds a lot, but it's easily come by.

    Best way of making quick money is to do the Docks mission (for Renal Bloodscalp). You get nearly 11000 for completing the mission and also a +3 short sword you can sell for about 3500. Sets you up pretty well early ;) .

    Also, the slums slaver quests is an easy one to do early and gives decent rewards.

    2900 gp I think, and it depends on reputation. The higher the rep,the lower the cost. And Charisma too.

    Another quick, and fairly easy, way to get gold is to do Nalia's quest. IIRC, you get 10K gold just for completing the quest, not including what you can pick up along the way (like a very awesome and useful flail).

    Thank you all for pointing out some fairly easy missions to do. I bought the glasses yesterday, which is now a "must" for my party. Since I'm a sorcerer, I didn't need (mostly) any of the scrolls I have picked up. So, I just sold all of them to get it without even going through a mission yet! Nalia's quest sounds profitable, but I don't want to sacrafice Yoshi until I get Imoen back. BTW, is the Umar Hills quest hard? I've tried it before, but didn't get far (stupid busy bug!!!).

    OFF TOPIC EDIT: I don't know if you knew this, but if you complete the Eyeless quest before confronting the mad Cleric in the Docks, you will get a dialog option which reads:

    Mad Cleric: Join my religion blah blah blah!

    You: Does it involve removing my eyes?

    Hehheheheheh....I thought it was funny.

    He says that you are mocking his religion and attacks you like normal.
