5. Save Nightsong, Then Sell Her to Loroakkan

After enduring a century of imprisonment and countless deaths to sustain Ketheric Thorm’s immortality, Nightsong—Dame Aylin, the daughter of Selune—finds salvation at your hands. You offer her hope, an opportunity to exact her revenge, and a chance to truly live again. With you as her ally, she is reunited with her beloved Isobel, finding solace in the shelter of your camp as both she and Isobel place their trust in you. 

And yet, you have the option to betray her by delivering her into the clutches of Loroakkan. The notorious wizard in Baldur’s Gate has long desired her immortality. Placing a hefty bounty on the aasimar’s head, Loroakkan plans to attain immortality through the same dark methods as Ketheric Thorm. With you stabbing her in the back, Nightsong is condemned to captivity against her will, torn away from her beloved Isobel, destined to endure another century, or more, of torment.

Being betrayed by her “trusted ally” cuts a lot deeper than merely allowing Shadowheart to end Dame Aylin's life, as Isobel rushes to Aylin's aid, only to meet her demise at the hands of you and Loroakkan while Aylin powerlessly witnesses the tragedy unfold.

4. Kill Your Love Interest in Dark Urge

Playing Dark Urge means you are in for a lot of morally questionable choices. However, one of the most evil things you can do during your Dark Urge playthrough is kill your love interest. This option emerges if you repeatedly fail to eliminate your targets, particularly Isobel. Eventually, one night, your butler will show up and offer you another way to regain your father’s favor. And it’s by slaying your beloved or the companion that’s closest to you. 

If you think taking the life of someone who loves you with all their heart is cruel enough, wait until the morning confrontation with the rest of your party members. You will then have to kill each and every companion of yours until you are the only one standing. Maybe this outcome isn’t what you want. But maybe it is. After all, it perfectly fits with a completely evil playthrough, especially if you want to fully embrace your position as a prodigal Bhaalspawn. But did your hands falter when you had to take the lives of those who stood by you through thick and thin and trusted you with all their hearts?
