Introduction
In my opinion, the biggest improvements in Baldur¶s Gate II: Shadows of Amn arethe well developed personalities of the characters who can join your party, and the better developed main plot and generally interesting and involved side quests.I thought it would be worthwhile to recreate the game¶s story in written form, in thegame¶s own words. All of the dialog in the following is taken almost unchanged directlyfrom the game itself, as well as some of the other material. In order to create a full story, Idid have to invent a lead character, as well as pick a particular path through the game.I am assuming you have already played the game itself, but you might want to readthis to experience the story again, or to hear from characters you chose not to include inyour party.In order to cover all the characters in the game adequately, I have actually createdtwo stories, despite the unavoidable overlap this causes. This story focuses more on theµgood¶ characters who can join your party. Another document focuses more on the µevil¶characters. Even with this decision, the game is so broad that not everything could becovered. In particular, I omitted possible romances with Jaheira and Aerie if you play amale protagonist, as well as most of the stronghold quests.This story features the following characters, in order of appearance: Rolanna, the(invented) paladin party leader, Imoen, Jaheira, Minsc, Aerie, Anomen Delryn, Naliade¶Arnise, Keldorn Firecam, Mazzy Fentan, and Valygar Corthala. There are cameoappearances by Yoshimo, Viconia, Haer¶Dalis and Cernd.Thanks to the lead designers at Bioware, James Ohlen and Kevin Martens, andeveryone else responsible for the dialog and story. I also found the Infinity Explorer byDmitry Jemerov of some help, available from:http://infexp.sourceforge.netI ask that this document be distributed without cost, and unchanged.Rhys Hess (rhyshess@hotmail.com)February, 2001March, 2002: Minor corrections to Shadows of Amn materials, added Throne of Bhaal material, added appendices covering Aerie and Jaheira romances. Thanks to theteam who created Throne of Bhaal (largely the same as those who worked on Shadows of Amn). A special thanks to anyone who actually reads through this entire document.
