So you killed Kangaxx, Firkaag, Irenicus, Bodhi and a bunch of other tough creatures, maybe even some TOB monsters.. but a monster (in my case) whooped my butt and probably everyone else that reads this forum... and he's right under our noses... (not elminster..) Renal Bloodscalp..(and a buddy of his who's name I can't recall) Yep, I'm serious.. He's a list of what happened...

I did Renal's quest for the theif stronghold... I had finished Aran Linvail's quests and was just stocking up for the voyage... I thought I'd like another pair of boots of speed, which Renal apparently has.. So I waltzed into the guild... And got my ass royally kicked.. Oh yeah.. Renal and his friend do instant kill every hit, it says:
"7 damage to Jaheira"
"Jaheira Death"
No it's not backstabbing, they're clean and plain visible.. they just instant kill EVERY SINGLE HIT!..
Wow, and you thought the demi-lich was hard? He's carrots and potatoes compared to these guys..

Hmm, I would like to know from everyone if they experienced the same thing...

Yes- I have exoerienced this- its an inbiult thing, to stop you from stopping yourself from progressing in your game. If you have finished Arun Linvales quests, you have refused bodhis aid, naturally. If you then kill off the shadow thievs, you will prevent yourself from going onto chapter 4. If you do this, the game will get boring pretty quickly, and i dont think that bioware want you throwing BG2 out of the window...

Yup, it happens. You can't kill him, his buddy in the Shadows comes and whoops you bad. THis is the reason. Say you rejected Bhodi's offer, who will you turn to. You kill bloodscalp, the thieves are against you, thus making you their enemy, and making the game stuck at that point

The only reason why this happens is because one of the Shadow Thieves (Arkanis Gath) is carrying some sort of Instant Kill sword that deals out massive damage and protects the bearer from almost anything. It's just the game's way of telling you: Don't be stupid. [img]smile.gif[/img]

His name is Gath

I had killed Renal and slipped away under Gath's nose unscathed (ofc, if he scath me, I die)

Simple. You instantly kill any enemy and breeze through to the finale within minutes. Then you realise how immensely boring and cheap your tactic was and reload the game to solo as a Jester.

Seriously though, that instant kill sword would naturally take all the fun out of the game.

Think about it though, your only enemy would be load time!

Gath's sword is not instant kill, it is a plain +3 dagger (pretty good by itself, but far from instant kill)
