Readme


Romantic possibilities are endless. It could be a bit of flirting. Or several bits. Some innuendo. A lovers' quarrel. A one-night stand. Or even several nights together - with a 'morning after' and without. Or something else?

We are attempting to give the protagonist of the game Baldur's Gate II these possibilities. Some of the encounters remain PG-13, some have adult writing. Some of the encounters are with non-joinable original characters(Hendak, Aran Linvail, Saemon Havarian), some of them - with completely new ones.

So, we are:

Kulyok - coding, coordinating. Aran, Bodhi, Cambion, Cyric, Desharik, Edwin, Eldoth, Elhan, Firkraag, Garren, Haer'Dalis, Mekrath, Ryan, Saemon, Sendai, Teos, Yoshimo; Lais, Ilona, Rebecca the Gypsy and a dryad - complete
berelinde Weathermistress Ada, Aimi the Barmaid, Laran the Paladin, Mira, Talak the pleasure slave - complete
cmorgan Anishai, Chanelle the Maid, Noober, Sheri the Bardess, Renal - complete
jastey Bjornin, Hendak, Solaufein - complete
magrat Coran, Guildmistress Busya - complete
Evaine Dian Gaelan Bayle, Ribald - complete
Ajnos Lord Logan - complete
Catseye Jarlaxle - complete

A list of fully complete, working submissions: Ada, Aimi, Anishai, Aran, Bjornin, Bodhi, Busya, Cambion, Chanelle, Coran, Cyric, Desharik, Dryad, Edwin, Eldoth, Elhan, Firkraag, Gaelan, Garren, Haer'Dalis, Hendak, Ilona, Jarlaxle, Lais, Laran, Logan, Mekrath, Mira, Noober, Rebecca, Renal, Ribald, Ryan, Saemon, Sendai, Sheri, Solaufein, Talak, Teos, Yoshimo.

Version 1 is complete, but you can still submit materials for Romantic Encounters - they will be included into the next versions. If you have something to contribute, please write it (and preferably code it, if you can - if you cannot, though, I do not think it is a big problem), and send it to me.

Technical details: we are using RE prefix for the mod, but you are free to code your submission with your personal prefix, if you like. Two special variables(flirting with your NPC, and an actual "night together" with your NPC), however, have to follow this pattern for crossmod purposes:
Global("RE_SaemonFlirt","GLOBAL",1), if PC and Saemon have flirted;
Global("RE_SaemonSex","GLOBAL",1), if PC and Saemon have slept together.
All the relevant variables are listed in the Readme file.





(The original post follows):



Between the release of the third "Pirates" and reading An Affair, I got this idea sitting comfortably in my mind and dangling her legs.

I don't want to write it, because I want to play it. :) But it's roughly an hour of writing, an hour of coding and an hour of testing.

Hmm... sounds like an Iron Modder idea...

How wicked! I want to play it, too. Badly!  :D
"Show me how you do that trick! The one that makes me scream", she said,
"the one that makes me laugh!" she said and threw her arms around my neck.
"Show me how you do it and I promise you, I promise that
I'll run away with you, I'll run away with you..."

Presumably, without the Desharik encounter at the end of it?

It depends on whenever you'd want to insert the Night, I suppose.  But why, Desharik encounter could stay - why shouldn't it?

(Also, I think that for various fans a one-night stand with Aran Linvail/Galan Bayle/Bodhi/Goo - - okay, I believe I got the point across - anyway, I think this more of sleeping-around-or-a-short-romantic-adventure thing will be popular. Perhaps very. I know I'd play it).

Do I make myself totally hilarious / ridiculous (what's the right word - I don't think I want to know :P) if I confess that my first finished mod enabled the PC to have an affair with Hendak (after freeing him, obviously)?  ;D

Nothing with long description texts, Just a few flirts on different occations, his proclamation of interest and, well, free and ..hm cosy nights at the inn afterwards. ::)

Oh, wow! Is it available? Can I download it?

And, yes, while the concept does make me smile, it is also very sweet. :)

This concept really has my mind boggling with the possibilities! :D

Specifically, I'm trying to imagine the various reactions that they might provoke in romanced NPCs...
Shocked Anomen: But...  My Lady!!!  ( :-* )
Sweet depressed Xan: I knew it...  It's useless... ( :-* )

And so on and so forth...

In a party that size?

They'll find out.

Especially since most of the places the PC visits are small enough to have super gossip-mills.
Stop by my blog over at Bookwyrme's Lair, my collection of reviews, pictures, and general ramblings. I also review comics and books over at FanboyNation.

Now that I think of it, all romantic encounters in BG1/BG2 are very popular: Delainy/Durlyle, Salvanas, Phaere... :)

And as for crossmod content, the mod could just provide a variable in the readme, like "Mod_PCFlirtedWithSaemon", and let the authors of the mods decide whether they'd like to trigger a banter on it, or not.

So, yeah. The mod - since I assume it is inevitable now.

There are two ways to accomplish this, I suppose: seven or eight mini-mods, or a larger mod with several components("An evening with Aran" by melora, "A wild night with Saemon" by Evaine Dian, "Hendak's Heart" by jastey, "Something wonderful and romantic" by berelinde, "Something Eeevil" by Kulyok, and so on). I'd like to sugest way #2.

If you have something to contribute, please write it (and preferably code it, if you can - if you cannot, though, I do not think it is a big problem), and send it to me. And... we may even release it! Maybe. Probably. :)

well, I have the male protagonist version picked out - always wanted an opportunity to  seduce a bardess... one bit character just got her lovescene.

The female one is leaving me adrift, though - your choice, Kulyok - you pick the female protagonists affair partner, and I will try my hand at a toe-curling lusty affair.

(I have a secret weapon - one of my non-IE friends writes Harlequin Romances - so I can ask her to check my choices)

BTW, Teen Content, Adult Content with Class, Ault Content without Class, or Circle/Square/Triangle Mod material?

I am assuming Adults Only, but with class...

Yes, while the steamy bits are all good, super-detailed sex sequences might be unnecessary. :)

By the way, forgive my ignorance, but what are Harlequin Romances?

Give me Renal. He has heard about my female protagonist, after all... :)

By the way, while the Weimerfain is out there biding his time, I think an affair with Bio Soulafein in Ust Natha isn't completely out of the picture, either.

Now that I think of it, Circle and Natlia are unavailable for download. These should be restored to some stable DL place.
Geometry is unavailable at SHS, but it's still available at {IEGMC}/thebigg/gibbeth.

If it's going to be done, I prefer the second approach, kind of reminds me of a modding confederacy, but that's cool.

And yeah, it could be an Iron Modder competition, but I'd allow a longer timeframe, say a week?

As for content, I'd vote for "Adult, but with class." Possibly "Strongly adult, but with class."

I like the idea, but before contributing I want to be reassured that this is not going to be a joke mod a la circle. This would collide with my original intention.

I don't want this to be a joke mod, either, but I don't think it will be. I think it could be something very positive, and I'm interested in participating.

So, lemme see, who do we have for possible targets:

Jastey's already done Hendrak. Man, I really have to phrase that better. Jastey already wrote an encounter with that NPC.

Maybe put a list of possibilities in the top post, or put out a call for volunteers with a signup sheet? This could be a lot of fun, but we don't want everybody to write encounters for the same NPC.

Yes, I think this much is clear.

Quite - I shall edit the top post shortly to give more information, this is a good idea.

As signups go, I think we all know that sometimes, time constraints and other things get in the way, and sometimes things do not get done, so, while I would say picking 'your' NPC to work with is a great idea, I think two Saemons or two Arans could work as well, should both authors really wish it - as appropriately tagged separate components, of course.

Okay, let me put it like this:
- I will edit the obvious stuff, like punctuation and grammar, and I will ask a second person - preferably a native English speaker - to give it a thorough look, too - again, typos and punctuation.
- I am a reluctant editor, simply because there are people who write better than me out there.
- Yes, something that I think is outright horrible will not go in.

I will not say "If you submit, I will edit the hell out of your stuff" - because I will look at someone's work(say, jastey or berelinde, because they posted here, and they want to participate), and the most I will do, most probably, is point out an awkward phrase or a missing comma, and make a suggestion or two.

So, I think it is going to be more like UB, with separate components by different authors; less like Quest Pack, with only one(right?) editor.

The guys need... erm... love, too!

Maybe not Bodhi :P

But there has *got* to be a nice, unattached lady somewhere.

Squire Eliot? (Paladin stronghold duties) Hey, she might be a paladin, but good does not equal prude
Weathermistress (forgot her name, but the Talassan high priestess)
The female Dawngreeter outside the Temple of Lathander might get a name and personality, someday
maybe a little off-the-books rendezvous with Madame Nim?
females specifically created for the mod
