Playing Baldur's Gate 1 on BG2 engine (BGT). I just started a new game, and my character is a Wild Mage. Got to the part where Imoen rejoins, just before you meet Xzar and Montaron. A bear attacked, and my mage cast Magic Missile and had a wild surge... and gated in a demon! I knew wild surges were sometimes powerful, but holy cow, what a way to bow out! Lol,
I don´t think you had protection from evil at this point.
Did the demon kill you before or after killing the bear?
Wild Mages are fun. I've played on in the pen and paper game, and turned myself into an Dragon once while trying to cast a fireball spell. I still haven't figured out how to polymorph back.
So casting fireballs can make you a dragon?
Be happy you did not cast a domination or stun spell.
You might be a mind flayer by now.
Mmm Fried Illithad tentacles...
