Why does my constitution keep going down?
Okay, so I'm playing as a half-elf mage. When I started the game, my constitution was at 11. Now I keep checking and it keeps going lower and highlighted in red. It's at 8 now. I have no idea why this is happening or how. And how do I fix it before I have absolutely no health?

Ohhh crap... I recall reading about a bug with that and familiars... lemme see if I can find it...

Which, do you have a Familiar and has it died?

Normally when your CON is in red like that it means that you are under some drain effect which can wear off or be removed by the Cleric Spell Lesser Restoration.

Also, the other possible way to fix it would be to activate the CLUAConsole, mouse over your portrait and hit CTRL+R. Not sure, but that usually fixes status effects.

BINGO!

I found the bug I had read about:
http://forum.baldursgate.com/discussion/24218/familiar-spell-error-critical-problem-solved

There used to be a glitch where EVERY time you loaded the game, it would believe that your Familiar had died. This would cause your CON to reduce by 1 point after every load. It was supposedly fixed... So... I dunno why you would be experiencing it now...

It's probably a permanent effect applied to your character. Download EEKeeper and go to the Affects tab, and remove the offending effect.

What is the EEKeeper and how would I get it?

EEKeeper is a save-game editor for BG 1 & 2 Enhanced Editions. It's an extremely powerful tool and I don't recommend using it for BG2 as I have experienced a number of bugs when doing so.

If you do opt to use it, be sure to unequip all gear on your party PRIOR to editing your save game. This is due to a bug I have experienced... which is difficult to explain...

I think the CTRL+R thing did the trick. It's still at 8, but it's stopped going down. I also erased the Summon Familiar spell, so maybe that did something too. At least my hit points are increasing now.

Having the Familiar Spell memorized or in your spell book doesn't do anything, and erasing it doesn't remove the variables.

If you ever summoned a Familiar, then that would possibly have caused the bug (even though the bug was supposedly fixed).

If you want to get your lost points of Constitution back, we can do that pretty easily. You've obviously got the CLUAConsole active, so all you need to do is:

CLUAConsole:CreateItem("BOOK03")

Each use of that item will give you a +1 to your CON as a permanent effect.
