I rewrote and indexed this article, and created all pages that were missing. This source article contains information from two full playthroughs, and all lore from the manual and cluebook is also included. It contains pages for all NPCs, spells, and creatures, even those just mentioned or have optional encounters. This is the first ever video game to include Drizzt Do'Urden, one of the most popular figures in the Forgotten Realms.

Possessed Priest

I rewrote and indexed this article, and created all pages that were missing. All important topics are included, and each has a page. It is a very well-received sequel to a popular game. 25 year after its release, it was still called one of the best D&D games ever made.
