Baldur's Gate Developer Answers Fan Questions
11:06 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Dragon's Breath Forge has recently posted a Q&A session involving David Gaider, designer at BioWare (makers of the Baldur's Gate series), and 10 fan-submitted questions that Gaider graciously answers.


The questions range from interesting to ridiculous. A question regarding the golden pantaloons of Baldur's Gate has Gaider explaining this long, difficult Easter Egg. Another relevant question inquires as to why certain spells were left out of the game, to which Gaider replies that the spells were either infeasible with the engine, too complex, or redundant in the face of other spells.


Other interesting questions, including why there was only one new NPC in the Baldur's Gate 2 expansion set Throne of Bhaal, why Water Elementals were never added, and what Gaider's favorite beer is are also asked and answered. For readers interested in the full Q&A session, be sure to peruse The Dragon's Breath Forge for the full write-up.
