Playing Baldur's Gate 1 in BGT

When I meet a new NPC and he asks me or I ask him to join the party, if my party is full, I can remove one of the previous members. But while some stay wherever I left them, others just leave out of the screen (Khalid for example), is there a way to get them back later on, if I want to, or is the NPC gone forever ?

It is kind of strange, since you can't event see the new guy's stats before making your decision.

  • its been forever since i played BG1. do they return to where you initially found them?

  • I seem to remember the party members staying where you leave them, but it has been 5+ years since I played.

  • If i recall correctly, you can tell them to stay put or to go to a certain place and wait for you there.

This is coming entirely from my memory, so please forgive me for any mistakes:

Most party members will stay where you put them (or if you say 'No' to them when they want to join). There are a number of exceptions though:

  • If you remove Kivan, he stays gone for good.
  • If you remove Shar-Teel, she stays gone for good.
  • If you say 'No' to Jaheira and Khalid the first time, you can never get them again.
  • Furthermore, if you kick out one of them, the other goes as well.
  • If you say 'No' to Edwin with Dynaheir in your party, you can never get him again.
  • If you say 'No' to Viconia the first time, you can never get her again.
  • The same goes for Branwen and Yeslick
  • If you make Xan leave by being rude, he's also gone forever.

Basically, whenever a party member leaves beacuse of arguments or disagreements they are gone for good.

    You should note that if you kick out Minsc or Dynaheir, the other will leave as well, although they will reamin where you leave them.

Khalid and Jaheira go back to the Friendly-Arm-Inn if you kick out one of them.


Garrick will leave if you refuse him the first time.

  • That might be a useful comment, but is a very meager answer to a question about any party member.

    This is new, useful information though. Maybe add 'in addition to the accepted answer'. Reminder: New users cannot comment. The user that wrote the accepted answer has been inactive for 9 years. This would not be an acceptable edit for someone else to make/suggest; as it would change the content of the answer. Comments are second class citizens, so partial information like this should be in an answer
