Firebeads Scroll
hey guys,
could someone give me a hand with this sidequest please,
it tells me to collect a identify scroll from tethtoril but when i speak to him, he just gives me the one-sided dialogue that basically Gorian is waiting for me to hurry up and get going,

i've tryed everything, speaking to him speaking to firebead, trying to get into candlekeep hall,
asking gorian to hold on just a little longer, but i cant get it done, ive tried leaving it till i can get back into candlekeep...

so is there a bug stopping you from doing the side-quest, or do you have to wait till you get back into candlekeep to finish it ?

You can get the scroll if you pickpocket Tethoril. That's the only way I was able to get it, as I have the same bug.

Thats it realy?! no override hacks? no new update to fix this bug that reared its ugly head after the last patch?

who knows =/, i havn't had the chance to check see if its fixed yet, because of being back on deployment...

Apparently you can pick it up in Beregost at some point? I remember in the original that it worked right away, though as i understand it they changed the quest reward from xp and gold to a scroll case, explaining why you may not be able to finish it in the prologue. I'm not sure about this however.

It's actually a bug that appeared after introducing one of the later patches. Developers said that they didn't fix it right away 'cause it's a minor issue. Expect a fix in the next patch.

A possible solution: kill Tethoril and loot his body.

XD from what i've seen we're still waiting for the ""patch"" to allow the multi-player game
and if memories serves said patch was surpose to be ""fixed"" give or take a year or so ago

What's wrong with multiplayer, though? I play with a friend just fine. We had some problems, I think he had to disable VPN, but other than that, totally playable. Enjoyed the heck out of it :)

i dont know whats wrong with it, i cant say because i cant get on it, everytime i try i get the ""a future patch will be made blah blah blah"" msg
but then again i guess i cant complain anywheres, i have no one to play BG:EE with, i dont tend to chat to many people with the steam chat, and my friends dont tend to play BG, steam/pc games...

I have never played the multiplayer. Is it good? how would that work? very interesting.

To work around the bug you can get the CLUAConsole going. Just google the quest name - there is a specific console entry to set back Tethorils conversation.
I've also had the same problem as the main poster. I also found that when I go to talk to Elvenhair Firebeard (or whatever his name was) in Beregost I find that he doesn't give me the book quest he is suppose to give me, and instead just talks about suggesting I should read such and such book if I get the chance. : / Is there a way to use the console thing to get that quest going properly as well???

Over on the official BGEE forums there's a thread with temporary fixes for some of the more common issues, including this one:

Since the patch is being delayed (see also here: ), that thread's a good spot to go to for these things.

will i be able to manually add them fixes to the steam version of BG:EE or will it not work? and have to wait till steam updates the game itselfs....

very annoying that the first side quest you could possible have is bugged and no sign of patch coming... so thanks steam I bought a broken game that will never get updated or atleast it seems like so atm
