How To Speak With The Dead?
There is a way in BG3 where you can speak with the NPC characters even after their death.
Additionally, you can cast the Speak With Dead in the two ways:
- If your character has Amulet of Lose Voices, then you can cast Speak with the Dead spell to NPCs.
- You should find the book Necromancy of Thay from a Secret Cellar that will help you cast the Speak with Dead spell.
You can cast the Speak with Dead spell on the corpse of the dead body of Art Cullagh. Then, his body will rise up in the air.
The green light will be emitted from all over the body after the spell is cast.
However, once the spell is cast, you can only ask a maximum of 5 questions then they will die again.
You can ask about the location of Thaniel who will help to break the curse of the Shadowland and recruit Halsin.
The Bottom Line
In conclusion, Baldurs Gate 3 is a versatile game where players can interact with NPC through dialogues and multiple options.
Each dialogue will lead to different consequences and a completely distinct storyline.
Hence, even if the NPC character is dead, you can easily speak with their corpse to find out the secrets.
