In BG1? No...some wyverns, but no dragons. You don't see a dragon until Siege of Dragon Spear. There is a bunch in BG2, though.

Good thing too since I don't think you'd have the skills or equipment to fight a dragon in BG1.

I might consider buying the expansion if this is the case

Yes there is a Green Dragon but I wasn't that impressed by the fight.

Yep. In my case the moron got under terror(or something) spell. It was more of a problem to catch the fleeing bastard than to kill him.

Heh...yeah, the green dragon was a push over. I buffed my party up till they were about to explode...used potions and scrolls...special abilities. And then I blinked a couple times and it was dead.

I think I'd still recomend buying the Siege of Dragonspear expansion. It was enjoyable. Not the same quality as BG1 or BG2, but still good and sets up the BG2 story a bit. Even if they did a bad job with the dragon. Though really the BG2 dragons were not perfect either. In PnP AD&D it really shouldn't have been possible to kill a mature dragon if the GM played it right. I only ever killed one...my dwarven fighter got lodged in his thoat when I surprised him by jumping into its mouth. I choked it to death.

Nah, SoD is trash with subpar writting, movie like railroading, and that is even ignoring the political nonsense.

Thats your point of view. Personally I rather enjoy it. True, it doesnt begin to live up to BG2, but it has some decent stuff and as an expansion to BG1 it doesnt look as tragically. Tales of Sword Coast were much worse in my opinion. Just some unrelated quests, one fisher village and a mediocre dungeon.

does SOD add any more new NPC or cool things to do (minus the polical SJW crap)?

SoD is its own separate story that starts after the end of BG (1). There are a few new NPCs, but many of the old NPCs are gone and the ones that remain don't mesh well with the Original Saga versions of themselves.


As for "cool stuff", that's subjective I suppose but my answer is not really, probably the "coolest" would be the green dragon which is underwhelming and the IWD call out which is so-so at best.

Also the new NPCs do not appear outside of SoD.

"Mediocre"? Last time I checked Durlag's Tower was considered one of the best dugeons in the entire Saga. However with that said it is true that TotSC did take some flack during the day, just as ToB did. But unlike SoD TotSC fit into the world at large.

Oh and once you start SoD you cannot go back to the BG (1) areas at all.

so SoD was just "shoehorned" in w/ SJW agenda? :steamfacepalm:

Pretty much, but even if you discount the SJW nonsense completely SoD still wouldn't be worth playing, it's linear to the point that you can not even go back to the SoD areas after they are "locked" as the army moves north so you'd better be sure what triggers the next stage with a walk through if you don't want to miss the little content that there is. Imoen is assumed to be a straight thief who has just begun learning magic so she stays behind in the city and doesn't travel with you, the "big bad" is pathically written, and what little BG (2) hints that appear feel like sledgehammer blows that makes the Bhaal spawn feel like a idiot for not reacting to thrm in BG (2).

Just like Throne of Bhaal.
