Yes, if you discharge Minsc, Dynaheir will leave with him/her.

If you wish to only discharge Minsc, but not Dynaheir the easiest way is to just let him die. If you're not feeling that evil, just find a room with a door, close the door around him and then discharge him. This way he won't be able to approach you. Just be sure it's not a room you're likely to enter again.

My advice would be to travel to the Friendly Arm Inn as pick up Khalid and Jaheira. And then go to Nashkell. Along, the way you could dump
Xzar and keep Montaron. (as he really is very
apt and resourceful wizard).

This means you can have Kivan in your party to.
This would mean that you travel with 5 people in your party, and this is OK. There is no rule Baldur's Gate 1 saying that you must travel with 6 people.

You could keep both Xzar and Montaron and
pick up Khalid and Jaheria at the Friendly Arm Inn. And then go to Nashkell.

After this, you can dismiss both Xzar and Montaron and travel with Minsc to pick up Dynaheir. Then you could get Minsc killed.
(or do what Drizzt suggests). And then you
could pick up Kivan.

I've found that a party with Jaheria+Khalid,
Dynaheir+Minsc, and Imoen and myself works well for a first run through of the game.

Don't you mean the other way around Karsten? Xzar is the wizard, and Montaron the thief.

I've never played with Kivan, but I have heard he is quite a decent NPC to have along. He can be found at High Hedge.

Yes, of course smile

It has been a while since I've played Baldur's Gate 1.

Kivan is a very good NPC, plus he sounds like Clint Eastwood.

Montaron is very handy once he levels up a couple of times and has some health points, because he is a fighter/thief. You can dispense with him when you run into Coran or Safana, because he will start to grumble and then make threats against you as your Reputation goes up. If you need more fighting backup, Coran is an ace archer.

Alright everyone, I will go to FAI and pickup Jaheira and Khalid to make a group of 6. Then I want to go to the fishermen and get the quest with the priestess because at the end I get a bunch of exp when her quest is finished. Then I will head for Nashkel. At what level should I make Imoen a mage? This way I can get rid of Xzar and Montaron and have room for Minsc and Dynaheir.

Imoen ??

I'm not sure I would recommend dual-classing at all in Baldur's Gate 1. I always felt there was no real reason too, since the game is likely to be over as soon as (maybe even before) the original class has reached a decent level. Dual-classing means restarting again from level 1 with the new class, and not being able to use any of the abilities one learned before. (You have to reach the same level as the previous class before being able to use it's abilities).

It works a lot better in BG2. If you wish though, I guess having Imoen at level five or six would make her a decent enough thief before dual-classing her as a mage.

If you dual-class Immy at level 6 and you have the TOTSC expansion, and you do all of the quests, Imoen will reach the experience cap as a mage.

That having been said, you can leave Imoen as your thief and use Dynaheir as your mage. Imoen will become a very good thief by the end of the game, and Dynaheir is a decent mage, who can easily cover the party's needs. Imoen as a thief, Jaheira, Khalid, Dynaheir and Garrick were the party I used in my first BG game, and it went just fine. Minsc went a bit squirrely and had to be 'retired.'

Ok Drizzt- I will not dual class anyone from what you have told me. Hagatha- I do not have the expansion for BG1 and have finally gotten my group to Nashkel. With everyone still have level 1, the monsters are still mean to me, especially at night when I want to take a rest or go to a different location.
I guess that I will head for the Nashkel mine area and when I return I will get rid of Zxar and Montaron and pickup Minsc for his quest. Are there any quests I could attempt in the area around Nashkel for some additional xp? I am still having a lot of problems with my combat strategy, even tho I have a sling for Jaheira and Zxar to use. Imoen is using her bow but I can't seem to get Jaheira or Zxar to use their magic and could use some help on this subject.

There is one that you can get by asking the guard who "greets" you there; it includes finding a captain gone mad. Can't remember his exact whereabouts though... There is also a small side-quest in one of the houses that includes searching the Nashkel mines for a missing husband (but you may take this when you enter the mines).

Also go visit Volo in the tavern. He's a celebrity. laugh

If I recall correctly, you can press the rest button or go rest in a bed in the Inns in Baldur's Gate.

This I think will also heal you...

So you might not want to travel at night,
but rather travel by first daylight...

It may take you a little longer to get there,
but there is no timer as to when you have finished the main quest in Baldur's Gate.

Yes, the inns are much safer...as you will never get attacked in them. However, healing goes slowly. Be sure to cast all healing spells before resting, as this is not done automatically (it is in BG2, though).

You spellcasters have to memorise spells every night before your party sleeps. If you click on the spell book at the left of the screen for the character, you will see a book with squares on the left page and spells on the right. Select the spells you want to use by clicking on them, and they will appear on the left side of the page.

Now you sleep.

In the morning, the spells have been memorized and can be used.

To use them click on the character. At the botton of the screen are a number of gold icons. One looks sort of like a half moon -- that is where the speels are. If you click on it, all the available spells will appear, ready for casting. Most spells need to have a target selected in order to be cast.

Clerics and Druids have a different spell book from mages.
