    I redownloaded the latest version of BG SoD and I hope the bugs are fixed but right now I'm stuck. I can't figure out how to transition off of the ducal palace screen where all the refugees are gathered to the left and right of the current party. This is after you get all your gear back and imoen is felled by a poison dagger and you have to search for your party members. Can I get Khalid and Jaheira back? And where do I go to get Skie? What I really need to know is how to get off this screen to start the game because I hover the cursor over the edge of the screen to the south but I can't transition. Any advice is welcome...

    No one is going to help with this question? I'd like to play a game this Winter in my free time and I need some help with this problem of not being able to transition or find a way off this screen. Could anyone offer some sort of solution?

    Does the cursor change at all when you hover your mouse over the area where you should be able to transition or not ?
    What about active quests, maybe there are some actions you might still have to perform in the area before you are able to leave - check your journal.
    If i recall correctly you have to talk to Corwin before you can actually leave.

    There is also no way to recruit skie for your party (outside of enabling cheat keys and forcibly adding her to your roster.)
    Skie serves simply as a npc that you can interact with - she will show up during the plot several times, but you will never be able to actually invite her into our party.

    I hover the mouse over the edge of the screen (to the south, the only place you probably can transition because the east and west is blocked by refugees) ,and I can't transition. The cursor turns to the gloved hand, but theres no "exit the screen" thing. I already talked to Corwyn and as I said im out on the street outside ducal palace surrounded by refugees to the left and right. And what happens to Imoen? Can I get her at all? I had to take Safana and Viconia because theres really no one else to get. Looking forward to an answer and thanks in advance.

    Once you are taken in front of the ducal palace where the mob of refugees is, you should see a scripted event where a guard knocks down one of them while trying to keep them away - after a brief banter (you can gain +1 rep by telling the guard off) you should be able to continue just fine - theres a lot of people close to eachother, but you should be able to find a way through them all.

    I'm afraid you cannot take Imoen along for the SoD expansion either - she'll be spending the rest of the duration of the game recovering and studying magic.
    In fact, there are only two rogues available to take her place, one being Safana, whom you can find in the Elfsong tavern after leaving the ducal palace, and the other is Glint, a completely new npc gnome cleric/thief.

    Thanks I figured it out. I just had to talk to Corwyn and she talked to Rohma and when that was done we left. Simple enough. Now I'm out of Baldurs Gate and at the camp. I'll start the game soon and I thank you for your help. Maybe I'm getting old or something heh. Ok thanks again....and thanks for your reply.
