The Great Book of Baldur's Gate and Tales of the Sword Coast by Baronius (Submitted) 481kb Download
This application can be very helpful to inexperienced players of Baldur's Gate or Tales of the Sword Coast, but may show new tricks to advanced players as well. Its Advice section contains tons of information and hints, and several effective combat tactics. The Appendix section tells you how to use CLUAConsole in Baldur's Gate, and contains a full list of BG and TotSC areas, with descriptions (using the CLUAConsole and these area filenames, you can visit any area of the game). Most of the information given in this program (except the Appendix section, which is BG1-specific) can also be used in Baldur's Gate II and Throne of Bhaal. This program was planned to be greatly expanded, but, for various reasons, the development has stopped at the beta stage, so the author removed all unfinished sections and released this version as final.
