Baldur's Gate Mini Quests & Encounters

This is a mini-mod for all BG1 games: "vanilla" BG1 (with or without the add-on Tales of the Sword Coast), BG1Tutu v4, EasyTutu, and BGT. It adds several small quests and encounters to the game, including the "slime quest", jastey's former stand alone BG1 mini quest mod. Before installing BGQE, any stand alone version of the Slime Quest mod has to be deinstalled.

The duration of the game time added by this mod is approximately 30 to 60 minutes, depending on playing style.

The number of quests and some of the existing quests will be expanded eventually, and NPC interjections are in development.

Note: The "Extension of Bjornin Encounter" is moved to "Romantic Encounters for BG1" where it belongs.

I. Slime Quest

This quest is located in Beregost. If you pass one of the houses in the northwest, a woman dressed in red should approach you. There are some strange things going on in the house of her neighbor, and she wants your help.

II. Family Treasure Quest

This quest is also located in Beregost. If you go into another house in the northwest, you will meet a strange couple. They obviously have a serious problem, but haven't talked to each other for some time now. Although it seems that they aren't interested in talking to you either, it might just be that you can solve the riddle and ease their worries... or betray them and ruin the family completely.

III. Babysitting in Nashkel, including Carnival Encounter

This quest occurs in Nashkel. Did you meet the desperate mother of two little children? She has something important to do, and is in great need of a trustworthy person who will watch over her children while she is away. So, fearless monster fighter, will you be ready for this challenge?

The babysitting is only available for paladin PCs or for non-evil aligned PC's with reputation higher than 12. Evil PCs can bully the mother away, which will lead to a follow-up.

At the Nashkel carnival, you can find Tina. The young woman is another tragic soul in need of some money... or so she says.

IV. Monster in Nashkel

Near the Manor House in Nashkel you can save little Arnim from a monster that's chasing him. He is staying with his parents in the Nashkel Inn. For such a heroic deed, the thankfulness of his parents should be all yours... shouldn't it?

The delivery man who mixed up the egg deliveries will be met later in the game. One of his customers is very, very unhappy about what he got and both will be delighted to see you.

V. Fallen Paladin in Baldur's Gate

In the northern part of the city, in the temple of Helm, an evil fallen paladin is hiding. He slaughtered a little girl without hesitation... at least that's what the angry people in front of the temple are saying.

VI. Undying Love in the Fishing Village

The frightened woman in the left house tells you she is threatened by a monster hiding behind her house. Maybe you should go and take a look?

VII. Lovesick Half-Orc

On the road north of Nashkel, you meet Uguth. He is on his way to Baldur's Gate, to his beloved. Due to his appearance, being clearly descended from orcs, he has to overcome a special hindrance before he can take her into his arms.

VIII. Unexpected Help

In the Candlekeep infirmary, glum Sir Trun seeks healing from his wounds. He was injured badly in a fight, but that doesn't seem to be his actual problem, as Linda, his fiancee who is staying in Candlekeep Inn, can tell you...

This quest is accessible both during the Prologue or after the return to Candlekeep. Note: Since most players finish this quest in the prologue, there are no NPC reactions for this quest.

IX. Many little paws

Formerly meant as an Easter Egg quest I figured it makes sense to tell players it's actually there. Make sure you have Minsc in your party when talking to the vendor at the Nashkell Carnival. Everything else will develop from there - promise!
