If I have GnK and BnW, do I subscribe to both versions of Faerun or choose between the two?

My interface is slightly out of sync, all the icons are slightly down and to the right of their respective boxes. Since some recent update the steam launcher for the game has changed, DX9 version only seems to load in windowed mode and DX10/11 versions ctd before getting to the main menu screen, so i've been playing in the touchscreen mode in order to get full screen. if anyone knows what i can do to solve one of these problems and return my icons to their rightful places, i'd be most grateful. might even be a +3 suit of armour in it for you. But probably not if i'm honest

Bug report: game-stopping bug. Reached turn 140 and none of my units can cast spells. The option to do it is there, it just wont execute... i have no other mods, have tried clearing cache, using earlier save and reinstalling Faerun. Help please!

Asturias, during the game setup you need to choose the map type. Once you choose Faerun, look beneath the title for a radio button which says "Load Scenario." Click that button. When you do this, you will then be able to choose which Faerun civilization you want to play. The other setup options are the same as in a regular game.

VITA: Move the hero to within two hexes of a City-State. The following pre-requisites must be met:

- The City-State must be the centre of a cult (i.e., have a faith with the +30 influence of a Holy City);
- There must be a small circle with a five-pointed star under the city's name, indicating that it's currently offering a Quest.

How do you make heroes take quests?

Would no other mods include EUI? I just want to make sure before removing it.

Why Lantan is limited to ilussion? They're more transmuters. I know that "gnomez use illusion because reasons" but that doesn't make sense to me
