I remember this debate coming up somewhere else, too.  Andy might remember, as I seem to recall him posting about it.  BG1NPC, perhaps?  I don't really care one way or another, so whatever the consensus feels is best is OK by me.

Always Anchev. I believe Costak is Brunos' last name.

They also switched freely between Rieltar and Reiltar.

I think you're right about that. Well spotted. [ADD] And while it's not exactly implausible that Rieltar would have married Brunos's sister, it is a bit of a stretch. [/ADD]

His creature name is Rieltar, so that's the one I went with in the new journal--the old one only misspelled it once anyway. I didn't check the other documents, though.

I remember pointing that out somewhere before and suggesting changing them all to Anchev. There were also instances where Mr Anchev Senior is referred to as Rieltar, and other times Reiltar.

Regarding the Anchev/Costak stuff... I don't mind making the change, but an NI search didn't come up with a hit for Sarevok Costak (at least not in my game).  Looking back, though, I think I might have installed the Baldurdash GTU, which might have made the change.  If anyone wants to give me the dialog.tlk string references that need fixing, then that'd be swell.

1355 They are led by Sarevok Costak.
1359 A man named Sarevok Costak is responsible for the frame.
7238 The seer told us that the leader of the Iron Throne was Sarevok Costak.
7243 The seer tells us that Sarevok Costak was the man who framed us for the murders at Candlekeep.

Oooo, another nitpick. When you start the game, the map of Candlekeep is unexplored.

Sounds fair, SixOfSpades...We should make the Candlekeep area visible since the Prologue.
 Speaking of this we might also want to not make it unexplored again once we go back after Gorion's death...

I don't think Explore() works in BG? I suppose you could fake the big bitmask, but I wouldn't.

I am sure it does, but even if it did not, you could have the area script cast a Clairvoyance spell.

I do not see what this has to do with Unfinished Business, though.

Seeing as we'd be rectifying what is, after all, a rather silly oversight, and can't affect your odds of beating the game, it seems more like UB or Fixpack stuff than an actual tweak.

Agreed with SixOfSpades although it suits better the BG1 Fixpack than UB...

Another Costak/Anchev issue. I think this one proves that Rieltar's last name used to be Costak, before BioWare changed it.

I just talked to Husam, and asked him about the Iron Throne leaders--the big bossh of the whole orrrrnizashion is "Reiltar Costashck." Which shows why BioWare failed to find that particular line when they went through the game changing all the "Reiltar Costak"s into "Rieltar Anchev"s.
