Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn Tips

Magic Liscences and Where to Buy Them
It's highly recommended that you buy them, as the Cowled Wizards will follow through on their threat if you intend to use magic on any of the normal maps in the game. For example, using magic to kill on the street in the Slums will get their attention.

In the government sector, you will find a man close to the front door of the main government building, willing to sell you a liscence for 5,000. Don't worry if you think it's too much -- magic is a useful addition, and the combined quests can easily repay it several times over.
