Shazzellim
« Reply #100 on: December 03, 2004, 08:20:57 PM »
*spoilers* and all that.









In Xzar's house is Shazzellim, added by UB. A rather nice scimitar it be. the description states:

This scimitar is of rather poor quality but beneath its surface lies great power and evil.  Created for the sole purpose of slaying Harpers, Shazzellim is more than capable of that task.  With one strike of the blade a bard must make a saving throw vs. spells or die.  Crafted by a Red Wizard of Thay, the sword also has the ability to vocalize, which is why it was often given to fighter-mages in the service of the Wizards.  Needless to say, possession of this sword would not be looked upon very highly by Harpers.

Anyway, I promptly gave it to my local non-good scimitar wielder, Jaheira. I was thinking, if this sword is so hated by the Harpers, it could be a springboard for all sorts of evil fun. At the least Jaheira could comment and refuse to use it. Edwin might want it's return to the Red Wizards. The Harpers could kick up a fuss and send folks after it, if its considered to be in bad hands. Or if they trust you, you could be asked to destroy it somehow.

Anyhows, I appreciate most of those suggestions are far more appropriate for the Questpack, but given that the scimitar is in UB, just wanted to mention it.

In fact, in the original game, this is Elhan's sword...  ;)

Certainly in my current install c6elhan.cre still has Shazzellim. I can't swear that thats not because some other mod gave it back to him though, if you chaps had it removed.

Weird... I'll look into it, and would be inclined to replace Elhan's with a Scimitar +2 or something.

I wonder, if that would actually change anything for the player? I mean : does it matter at all? I never fight him anyway.

Indeed. You try, you die. Darn pansy elves attacking you... It should be completely possible for a child o Bhaal to slaughter an elf army. OF course, that breaks the plot.

What happens if you attack him in the elven city? Do elves still pop in and insta-death you?

No, he Dimension Doors away.

Don't forget that Elhan's a child of Bhaal as well, by the way...  ;)

Ah, then he should show up in ToB. Saradush perhaps or anything of that kind. Does he mention his heritage? I cannot remember.

I don't recall such a thing ever being mentioned in the game, by Elhan or anyone else.

I can't stand Elhan, myself, but I won't rant about him right now.

Someone reported that Dave Gaider said that Elhan was originally supposed to be a Bhaalspawn, betray the PC and come back in TOB.

...but it's still not in the game.  Even if Dave Gaider *did* say that, if it didn't show up in the game, then there is no need to consider Elhan a child of Bhaal by default.

Well, as long as it is not in the game, he is 'officially' not. The musings of a developer are irrelevant. If there is something implemented in the files, then go for it. Otherwise it would be a mod like any other that adds new content.

If somebody takes this up, please let me kill him. :D

I concur wholeheartedly with jester. I'd absolutely love a way to kill the sanctimonius prick without breaking the plot. With a fork! :D

Imoen minor dialog bugfix
« Reply #119 on: January 10, 2005, 04:40:21 PM »
Perhaps you could include a fix for the fact that Imoen2.bcs is not assigned to Imoen213.cre meaning that when rescued at high levels Imoen doesn't initiate conversation with you in the maze under asylum nor when she gets her soul back. Seems like a good fit under minor dialog restorations, its easy enough to do(everythings there it just needs to be assigned) and I don't know of anywhere else this is fixed.

both the Imoen Romance and Chloe fix this already - admittedly, maybe not as widespread as UB, but still...
