My latest install of BGT with Randomizer, a quest related item from QUestpack was randomized and ended up in another location. The item is 'Red Scimitar' from the Infernal Thievery component of Questpack aka d0qpwisw.itm; it's supposed to be handed to the party by a specific NPC (if accepted) and obviously should not be randomized and end up elsewhere. It probably should be in the short list of NPC/quest related items that at least have the option to not get randomized like Imoen's diamond, etc?

Red Scimitar is not randomized in a non BGT game if you choose option "one or two items etc. ect....randomiize them? y/n" - no


so, it's more like BGT bug than a Randomizer bug.

Item Randomiser doesn't touch QP's stuff at all.

Odd... the item didn't show up until SoA stage of the game, which inclines me to believe it's not a BGT issue.

It would be a bad thing to have that item appear somewhere at random, rather than in the little dude's possession when he approaches the PC, wouldn't it?

The relevant QP NPC did show up later with the red scimitar; subsequently there were 2 red scimitars floating around in this game.


On an unrelated note, I thought it was settled some years ago that Randomizer shouldn't randomize the Bracers of Archery from Zal the 'fastest dart thrower in the west' guy from the BG1 portion of the game (doesn't really make sense thematically for it to be removed from him and moved elsewhere); apparently that's not the case?

I'll restate: Item Randomiser does NOT touch the scimitar, or any other item, creature or whatever from QP.


As for the bracers, nothing to that effect was ever settled. The bracers don't even affect APR, so how does it make sense? People are never boasting and only make factually accurate statements?

I also got this issue with the scimitar. Apparently, Randomiser doesn't have anything to do with it, but I still couldn't get my head around - NI shows no extraneous references to that item.


On the other hand, I do think that leaving the bracers with the dart thrower, gauntlets of specialization with the best swordsman and gloves of pickpocketing with the best pickpocket makes sense.

bad jarno, go away!
