There is one fight that’s not so easy to break up. One night when coming back to camp, you can find Lae’zel and Shadowheart arguing about an artifact. On one hand, it seems to belong to the Githyanki. On the other, it’s protecting the you and everyone else from being controlled by a God. It is possible to calmly put a stop to the conflict — It’s all up to the luck of the dice.


Triggering The Fight

When you recruit Lae’zel into your party, she insists that you find a creche to solve your Mindflayer tadpole problem. Pursuing this quest will eventually put you face-to-face with a Githyanki patrol. If you have Lae’zel with you, she’ll run off to greet them. While participating in the conversation, you learn that the Githyanki are looking for the artifact you have.

No matter how you end this encounter, you’ll wind up heading to the Mountain Pass where you can find the creche Lae’zel seeks. From this point on, when you long rest, there’s a chance that you’ll walk into camp to find Shadowheart and Lae’zel arguing over the artifact.

The Beginning Of The Fight

Lae’zel demands that Shadowheart hand over the artifact because it belongs to her people. Shadowheart doesn’t want to give it up because she’s on a quest to take it to Baldur’s Gate. That, and it’s protecting everyone from the influence of The Absolute.

There are no dice rolls for this initial fight. You can take sides, or you can tell both of them to go to bed and sleep. Either way, Lae’zel will mention having a duel come morning over the artifact. However, it turns out that Shadowheart can’t wait that long.
