Can you give the Helm to Gaelius? Is there something to be done with it other than keeping it in my inventory?

Yes. If you'll decide to keep it, it can be helpful in the Star Room of Ganezzar lately.

Okay, so how do I give it back? Any time I've talked with Gaelius, it's been the game teleporting me to him. Where is he/how do I get to him?

You can give it to Gaelius only once - when you reporting after HA1 quest (Darius Tomb) completion AND having it in your inventory.

I have the helm. Is there more to it than that? I talked my way through the raiders. I don't know where Gaelius is or how to get to him.

Just leave the burial site, head back to Maadoran and from there head to the palace district. Since you're working for the G-man, getting past the palace guards won't be a problem.

Wait, there's a palace district? Okay. Guess it's more wandering around for me.

Yep, it's one of the districts connected to the merchant district (the others being the entertainment district (where you start) and the slums).

Did you not pay the town info guy for a "tour"? He gives a pretty good overview of the city (though you still need to find him).

Oh and something to note for future play throughs: there's a small encounter/event when you first enter the palace district, which could potentially get you a bit of XP if solved correctly (around 2-3XP?); however, if you get teleported to Gaelius (e.g. via meeting that guy that Antidas gets you to check out), then this encounter permanently disappears (for the current game at least). While this sort of makes sense, it's also annoying - I only found out about it after I'd completed a number of games...

I did talk to the tour guide. I am bad at following spoken directions in games and nothing got marked on my map, so I've been wandering the cities trying to go in buildings and searching for transition points. I admit my vision is very poor and I do miss small highlights. If I could talk to more people, it would be okay.

It would also help if there were more street signs or at least more signs on shops and buildings. Things have really gone downhill since the Empire collapsed...
Tab key highlights all interactive objects on the level.

I've just checked - all seems ok to me.

When was this fixed?

I haven't noticed since I just assumed that person would always disappear if seeing Laevinus (or whatever Antidas's previous expedition leader was called) first, so have always made sure to visit the palace visiting him.

I'll have to remember this next time I fire up AOD again.

I dunno, moreover, I don't remember such issue at all. If you'll experience it ever again, plz, make a savegame just before it.

OK, if it happens again I'll make sure to keep the save.

I was pretty sure that it always worked like this, and that it was a design choice. This makes sense since that guy tries to sell you a "ticket" to the palace - and it wouldn't make sense for the PC to even want a ticket if he had already visited Gaelius, since then you wouldn't need a ticket to get in. You therefore also wouldn't have a ticket to sell to the woman that arrives just after he leaves (pretty sure she only appears after the guy selling to you leaves).

It's also possible that this was changed in the many patches that have come out since then, since I recall others mentioning this some time ago.
