(Made account. "Guest" was making the residents nervous.)
Curiouser and curiouser. Whilst attempting to wipe out Shadow Thieves at the request of Inspector Brega, per Quest Pack in Chapter 6, the cutscene kicked in. My initial response was "What!? Did I die?" but no, Bizzen just wanted to have a chat. The quest completed just fine, even though there were no bears in sight.
Unfortunately, this was in the middle of a battle that didn't go so well. After reloading, Bizzen's cutscene kicked in again, and Betana showed up afterwards (as herself, with nothing to say, following me around). This was so weird, I neglected to save the game before the fighting broke out again (I regret this intensely). Minsc suffered a horrible chunky death, and the cutscene didn't kick in after another reload. Of course, this time the entire party survived, and I really didn't want to do it over again.
So, the cutscene breaks in a third time during another intense battle in another part of the thieves' maze. Again, I get my butt kicked and, multiple party member deaths later, reload the game. The cutscene does not repeat a fourth time, despite my best efforts at wandering around the dungeon aimlessly. It does not seem related to anything in particular, other than consistently popping up right before I get my ass handed to me. This was triggering in a modified area, so I don't know if it will occur elsewhere or not. I'm hoping it does.
So... Quest Pack incompatibility? Other strangeness? QP is installed after EMaD.
