Turnabout V1 Released!
« on: October 03, 2005, 09:22:11 AM »
At long last, Turnabout, the table-turning add-on for WeiDU-Ascension, is released!

The Turnabout mod adds a new wrinkle to the final fight in Throne of Bhaal, enabling the player to recall dead allies to aid in the battle. The player can choose from a collection of seven NPCs, including the PC's mother and foster father, opening up a wealth of new tactical and roleplaying possibilities for the frantic battle.

For more information and download links, visit the Turnabout home page.

Hooray! The only downside to this mod is that you actually have to play ToB to the final battle. I mostly called it a day after I talked to the stone heads.

TOB Final Save will help you here. If you don't have one, find a friend who does.

Just downloaded and played Turnabout a number of times, and it was a hoot!

Or a blast. Or something. Something really nifty.

Anyway, great job, all! Very fun--thanks!

While interesting I wouldn't want that as his 'thread' (as the fate spirit would put it) isn't linked to Charname directly and Viconia has no power over the essence.

But in final fight with Mellisan,you not using fate spirit.To ressurect your allies (Xzar,Dynaheir),You use the pool with bhall essence.
Like Mellisan-In ascesion she summon Irenicus and Bohdi.And I mean to summon Vals by charname not by Viconia(she only tell charname about that )

Yeah, but I assume its a similar principle.  Amelyssan is drawing on the Bhaal essence to summon those tied to it, the Five (Bhaalspawn) and Irenicus and Bodhi (Both of whom carried the souls of Bhaalspawn in them for a time, and became tied to it).

If you could just summon random dead people it would be ridiculous.  To me it makes sense you can only summon those tied to the Bhaalspawn essence or important people in your life i.e. people who's 'destinies were tied to yours'.

I think Grim is saying that Ascension only shows evidence of the power extending to those who are linked to Bhaal's blood somehow, so it would be inappropriate to make Viconia's brother available as the sole exception.

Yes,but the in the pools is essence(power) of god.And god s don't have a problem with resurect or summon people.So if the bhallspawn have the power he (she) don't have this problem too.And if Viconia be with charname in final battle,she might suggested this.

The pools only summon the plausibly deceased.  IIRC, Valas isn't dead, just changed into a drider.

Then, hey, why not kill Elminster and Khelben and summon them and Szass Tam to your aid? ;) Probably more useful... :)

Because to summon killed Elminster or Khelben,you will need to fight with them.And to summon Valas and back him into his drow form,you don't need to make another fight.Second: I doubt that Szass Tam will have any interest,in fighting Mellisan,and Valas will have
(become drow again)

Hmm, what about Viekang? He was killed when Saradush fell, no? As I recall, he was unable to teleport away since Mellisan made him feel "safe"...or some such. And...Gromnir Il-Khan? I recall he was Bhaalspawn too, and not summoned by Mellisan before the final clash, though I could be mistaken.

Hmm, maybe a new topic should be opened for ideas on more ressuractable characters.
