Volo's Complete Guide to the Behaviour of Nymphs is a common Book. It contains an exchange between the wizard Elminster and Volothamp Geddarm on the detailed research conducted by Volo himself.

The heavily edited draft of a book that examines the activities of nymphs in GREAT detail.

Where to Find


[The book is handwritten in a swinging scrawl. The red ink of an eager editor slashes through most of its contents. Two inscriptions, each in a different hand, are scribbled inside the cover:]

Absolutely not.



Dearest Elminster,

While you may lack imagination, nymphs, I assure you, do not. Nor does the public that eagerly awaits this work. I will refrain from publishing this piece for now, but only that I may conduct a more extensive bout of research.

Your friend these many years,

Volothamp Geddarm

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This book also appeared in Neverwinter Nights 2: Storm of Zehir, set in the Forgotten Realms as well, around 100 years before Baldur's Gate 3.
  • Ed Greenwood, creator of the Forgotten Realms, mentioned in a tweet that Volo never got to publish the book on his own. He ended up publishing it as Nymphs In Need (Of My Embraces) under the pseudonym Valhalaeria the Vaunted.
