* FirstWorldProblems: A rare fantasy variant. A particularly snobbish nobleman in Baldur's Gate complains that the iron framing to his mirror broke and goes on like it's the worst that could happen in the world. Never mind all the people who are starving because their farmer tools are broken or the soldiers and other people trying to defend themselves are having their swords broken when they need them the most.

** In the original expansion you have Shandalar, who sends you on a FetchQuest to retrieve a cloak from a magical trap in the middle of nowhere that is essentially the Firewine Ruins on steroids. Oh, and he teleports you there, with no way to return without warning. Your reward for doing this for him is a big fat nothing. Sort of justified on his half if [[spoiler:you killed his family as part of the thieves' guild quest-line]], but otherwise he just comes across as a jerk.

And the cloak is inside a magical trap in the middle of nowhere, filled with crazed mages and traps, that is essentially the Firewine Ruins on steroids, and he never warns you about any of this.

* NotMeThisTime: The Zhentarim are blamed for the Sword Coast's woes early on in the game, but aren't responsible for any of it. This is why they dispatched Xzar and Montaron to investigate the situation and put a stop to it.

** Note that in order to recruit Jaheira, Dynaheir, or Skie, you need to let their appropriate male counterparts join your party before or alongside them. Shar-Teel will not join your party unless there is a male fighter she can challenge. Safana will also not join your party if there are no males present. This leaves five recruitable women if you want an AmazonBrigade for 100% of your game and aren't going to gender bend anyone, however you will be missing the only two female fighters, a somewhat decent thief, and a fairly decent mage in doing so.
