Here be Dragons

Back to Baldur's Gate II last night, having finally got past The Underdark, I'm clearing up all the unfinished quests from Chapter Two out before I head back to Athkatla to sort out Bodhi. I took on Firkraag, a rather nasty red dragon in the Umar Hills, and crikey, what a tough battle that was! Both Imoen and Viconia got killed (thankfully ressurrected by Jahiera's Harper's Call) and everyone else took quite a lot of damage, too. Not really worth it for the miserly 64,000 experience points. Still, I'm now the proud owner of a lovely set of Red Dragon Plate, one of the best armours in the game. Shame I don't have a Paladin in my party to take advantage of the Caromsyr, though.

I also sorted out the Shade Lord/Amaunator quest, to get my Ranger's cabin. I tried sorting out the Shadow Dragon too, but he was simply too tough, and immune to most of the magic my spellcasters threw at it. So I reloaded and chickened out of that one. I'll come back when I'm at a slightly higher level, methinks!
