    I finished the mines and now I can't seem to get anywhere, I've killed hundreds (literally) of bandits and I met Drizzt and he tells me to get into they're ranks. I think I killed the guy to get into they're ranks though.

    -If you were to read the scrolls that you find in story specific locations(Nashkel Mines) you wouldn't have to get lost, you know?

    You don't have to read anything to to the Bandit Camp (just killing Mulahey and having a specific one of his notes in your inventory will launch you into Chapter Three), but it does help. Two not-so-obvious options for getting there are Teven and Raiken in Peldvale and Larswood, but one of Mulahey's notes shows you a third option. It's a letter to/from Tranzig, who is staying at Feldepost's Inn. Once you've dealt with him, you can get to the Bandit camp by going north from Peldvale/Larswood (whichever one is farther north).

    And when you have completed any major quest in the game i would advise reading scrolls, journals etc. to help you progress. Just read anything dropped by an important enemy or documents found in chests i.e the one where you killed Mulahey, or the one in the biggest tent of the bandit camp. :thumb:

    Fel, as I said if he had read the scrolls he would have known what to do next. I did not say that he had to read them, I said that he wouldn't get stuck...

    Duffin, that's what I said in the second reply.....

    Yes, I know that's what you meant, but what you wrote could have been misinterpreted. I just wanted to make sure it wasn't. :)

    -I just like to rant to people who repeat things I've written because it pisses me off for some reason. It's as if my response didn't warrant people to read it and therefore people have to repeat it. It just pisses me off.

    -I have plenty more of these twitches so don't rule out the possibility of me snapping again :D .

    Most of the stuff like this also get listed in the Journal. Unfortunatelly so does every little other insignificant bit of info so it gets very cluttered...

    Thankfully such things that respond to the main story usually comes right before or right after a new chapter, so htey can be found on the TOP or BOTTOM of the journal pages for each chapter.

    And yes, reading the scrolls solves alot of problems.

    I have no number on how many times buddies called me asking how to do this or that in the game, and i tell them to read the scrolls they didnt read at this or that place. and they go back, read, and "oh....".
