de'Arnise Romance V2 Released!
« on: January 06, 2008, 03:08:53 PM »
I know. I can scarcely believe it myself.

PPG is proud to announce the release of version 1 of de'Arnise Romance. The mod adds a new romance track to displaced debutante Nalia de'Arnise, late of the Keep and lately of the Copper Coronet.

The de'Arnise Romance mod proudly brings you...

- A complete romance in Shadows of Amn
- A very nearly tasteful flirt pack
- New adventures with Nalia and her old family friends and enemies
- A carefully selected soundtrack

The mod is immediately available at http://www.pocketplane.net/nalia . You may preview the README at http://mods.pocketplane.net/readmes/README-DeArnise.txt .

Enjoy!

(It's definitely not a Christmas release, mind. On the account that Christmas has come and gone, oh, twenty-five minutes ago).

I'm so glad to see this finally come out!   I have just done a new install again (for the umpteenth time) and now a new Xan has come out, the Luxley Family, and now this!  I just hope it is not one mod too many (I play with just about everything under the sun) but even if I have to reinsall all over again this will make it worth it.

Thanks JCompton and Kulyok and everyone else who finally made this live!   :) :) :)

It's not like we had a bunch of content that we elected not to put in. It's a question of "What didn't we get to that we once-upon-a-time said we would do?"

The biggest ones would be the revoice (which we did actually start on a while back, but didn't get very far on) and new Keep management scenarios. Like I allude to in the FAQ, there are probably other things I promised which I have forgotten.

Yep, that's what I meant, thanks.

What about that 'corrupt Nalia' thing? Was it implemented? Did you ever seriously considered it?

No, I abandoned the "corruption path" idea long ago... I want to say even back in the FWP days I had called that one off. It could be intriguing, but it would be a tremendous amount of work, and just not something I was or am prepared to do.

Gotta try this mod, compatibility issue with Multi strongholds portion of EOU, right? I'll get around to unistalling that bit soon.

I think they should be compatible - but anyway, extra reports are always welcome.

I have the multi strongholds from G3 Tweaks installed and had no trouble getting the Keep.  I saw the extra dialog that normally isn't there so I guess there is no compatibility problem.

odd banter
« Reply #13 on: January 07, 2008, 01:24:51 PM »
I have Nalia and Jaheira both in the party, and Nalia just interrupted one of Jaheira's lovetalks. Problem is, their bickering left out Jaheira's actual question, but the answers are all the same. For reference:

J:I... I worry sometimes...
N: You worry incessantly.
[Bickering continues]
J: I have no patience or time to indulge whatever agenda you are pursuing, Nalia. If my concerns are incompatible with yours, expect no apologies.

Then I get these choices:
1: I do not mind. Yes, I hope to spare them the pain of loss I felt.
2: Those I spent time with as a child; their absence is a great loss to me.
3: Some were valuable to the group, and I have to recoup that loss as soon as possible.
4: I don't know either, because it is none of your business. Keep your topics to the matter at hand.

This (i'm sure) was a 'do you think of those who are gone' talk, but again, she forgets to ask the question itself, hah. Just a tad confusing.

'nother tiny nitpick

Nalia starts all her little flirts by coming to you with a hint of a smile, but it doesn't fit so well if she's angry with you, hah. Quite fun so far, and I like the peaceful guitar background for the talks.

Downloaded - I will get rolling in a few weeks, I expect, with my first ever game where I keep Nalia past getting the stronghold! But I just have to do the code-peek... really nice to see this!

You're probably thinking of the "did you enjoy it?" sequence. The way she says things, and when she's saying them (as you observe, as part of a flirting sequence) should tell you that she's not as angry as all that...

Okay, here's an actual suggestion/gripe:

Could you make the romance related quests update the journal? It isn't too hard to forget who you are looking for or where they might be on some occasions, particularly if, for example, the Harpers kindap Jaheira again or something.

Great work though, thanks again from satisfied user.

That's a reasonable suggestion, yes. I tend to forget about the usefulness of the journal, honestly.

Man I don't log in for like a year and look what happens its finally released!
Now, at last, the masks had fallen away.  The strings of the puppets had become visible, and the hands of the prime mover exposed.  Most ironic of all was the last gift that Raziel had given me, more powerful than the sword that now held his soul, more acute even than the vision his sacrifice had accorded me - the first bitter taste of that terrible illusion:  Hope.
