George Jameson in Tarant? He is in a building near the bridge. When I make the Fire Obstruction I get THREE Automatons instead. Hmm. I suspect this is a bug. And WHY doesn't Virgil pick any more spells? He REALLY needs that Cure poison. Did you notice the change the proffesion gems in a barrel in the shrounded hills musem (althea's home ?) Use one of these to change his default proffesion.
