    The skin armour

    I returned the eggs to the silver dragon instead of killing her. Is the skin armour worth her death? What are its special attributes?

    In the process of rescuing Imoen I had to leave Edwin behind in the dungeons. Am i able to retrieve him if i want to?

    The Bodhi finale:

    I recruited help from Drizzt/radiant heart/thieves guild. I now wish i hadnt because they rush in depriving me of valuable XP.I cant seem to lose them now since they follow me everywhere in the catacombs. I tried outrunning them but eventually they find their way back to me. I know the paladin will abandon me if I attack him slightly but will that affect my rep with the order?
    How can i keep them away from me until I've cleaned out the catacombs of vampires? Suggestions?

    More questions

    Where is the pommel jewel of the equalizer blade? I brought back the hilt and blade but cromwell only detects the blade.

    Another glitch- when cromwell creattes the wave halberd - the blade portion still remains. even though he just used it to complete the halberd. He then asks me to find the handle to complete the blade when he goes through my stuff. Weird.

    The pommel jewel is in Irenicus' dungeon, so unless you cheat it you wo't be able to finish the equalizer :bad:.

    Human Flesh Armour:

    STATISTICS:

    Armor Class: 3
    Saving Throws: +4 bonus
    Magic Resistance: 20% bonus
    Weight: 5
    Requires: 3 Strength
    Not usable by:
    Mage
    Non-Evil Characters

    IIRC Edwin will be stuck in the labyrinth and you can't get him again untill TOB.

    Not sure about the Paladins as I never bring them.

    Regarding the Wave that sometimes happens, I think Baldurdash fixes it?

    Most of the helpers will leave after couple of fights, but the leaders (Drizzt, paladin and the Shadow Thief) will stay for the finale. Have you tried to get them killed by vampires or that spike room? It won't probably work with Drizzt, but maybe with those other two. Web or some other similar spell might hold them back?

    Once all the paladins turned hostile towards me after their leaders sword (Harbringer) had spawned a fireball and damaged the other paladins. Interestingly, the leader claimed that I had betrayed them or something like that. Some of them left, but I don't remember how it affected my reputation. I didn't feel like visiting the Order afterwards either :D . After that run I haven't used any help (mainly because Drizzt went on and whacked Bodhi by himself - no xp).

    IMO the skin armour is pretty useless, considering the trouble. There's only 2 NPCs that can wear it (+ few other with Use Any Item). It could be cool for roleplaying reasons, though.

    thanks for the replies guys.

    The paladin does turn against you if you accidentally catch him in your fireball/death fog etc (that he wandered into). he just marches off while Drizzt will attack you. They also tend to push aside your party members in their rush to get at the enemy which means you cant set any suprises for the vamps. Unfortunately my save games are after i recruited their aid so I have to find away to distract them while killing the vamps. Not that easy because they follow you everywhere and will push aside other party members in their eagerness to be next to you.

    I wouldn't really worry that your allies are "stealing" your xp. In the great scheme of things, a few thousand xp is trivial.

    Agreed. And even if you have Drizzit or someone kill Bodhi, IIRC, Bodhi gives 0 XP on her death. You don't get the XPs until you stake her in her coffin. So the big XP payoff you get no matter what.
