This is the first I've heard of this mod!  It looks great!

I hope Minsc will be happy to see Dynaheir again.

Tiax may go on to rule! ... if you're desperate enough to bring him back, that is.

Wow Jc, you are having a modding spree recently, very good. But as I red on the Nalia forum, you are trying to finish as much modding work as you can before you gonna make a game?? If you are hired by a studio, congratulations and much succes! Does this mean you will stop modding BG 2 or will it take the backburner for now?

I have doubts about Tiax' speech pattern. "fortuious occurrence" fits to his stats, but compared to BG1 and BG2 in-game dialogue, I would expect something more mad and primitive.

Mind you, it is only a quickie:
"I have foreseen this! Great Cyric would not leave Tiax in this... this... this... <CHARNAME>?"
"I see that Cyric chose you as a tool for my glorious ascension!"
Banal, yes, but I would like to see something in this manner.


Jaheira: I sorely miss the option to let Jaheira choose between two men. I think that she is quite capable to make the decision herself, is she not?

I'm satisfied. In-depth arguments will have to wait for the return of Andyr. I find it hard to get worked up one way or another over characters that were essentially only BG1 soundsets (and then a couple of lines in BG2, in this case.)

There is a third reply option cut off by the scroll window which you may find more satisfactory.

  Is there also an option to offer to ressurect Khalid but not give up Jahiera?

Xzar... might be a bit lonely without Montaron, but I'm sure we'll get to him sooner or later...

And an all-too-brief family reunion... Gorion will have a picture in the final release, but I forgot to put it on this version and I'm tired.

Yoshimo's in the mix as well. Of course, not everyone is pleased to see him.

I'd like to see Keto's reaction here.

No Yoshimo's reaction on whether Ilmater's quest has been done or not? It works here all right, I am just wondering.

Last Yoshimo's line is very much in character, I think.

Yes, there are actually three variants on meeting Yoshimo, depending on game events. Only one of them (this one) will allow you to secure his services.

Oh, what a joyous turn of events! I truly had considered this mod a goner. Yipee!

What I am curious about, though, is what becomes of your old friends after the final confrontation with Amelyssan. Also, while I'm at it, will you use the same portrait for Gorion used in the BGI NPC Project? Consistancey is a good thing, after all. Perhaps even the BGII-ilike portrait for Montaron used in A Mod for the Wicked at SHS. It looks rather nice.

You can choose to resurrect one (or none) of them, if they are willing.

The rest implicitly go back to their respective resting places.

I wrote different sequences for Tiax depending on the PC's alignment (though I note that JC has extended stuff in my absence, so I do not know exactly how it plays out). Depending on your alignment he will have different reactions to you - ranging from hatred of your foul nature, leaving him to die while he valiantly fought Irenicus, to him being pleased that Cyric has sent you to fight alongside him. If you play through you should be satisfied that he is quite mad with a distorted memory of events, and you do need to be careful what you say or else you won't get away with it. ;) He's difficult to please. But what would you expect from the rightful ruler of everything?
