Oh, does any of the girls leave if you choose the wrong options?

There's one way Aerie runs back to the circus, but no point where the Bio three pull an EscapeArea... although there are a few places Nalia will if you're obviously, grotesquely cruel.

And please tell me that Imoen has comments about her brother's love life...

I lean towards saving that sort of thing for TOB when Imoen is definitely feeling much better. So... don't hold your breath.

oh come on...at least a comment at spellhold about her "Player" brother if you have aerie, jaheira and Nalia in the same party..

Imoen: Oh Ao...you not only date this "Nalia" chick, but you keep your discards around?  Bro, you make me sick...

Aerie and Jaheira: It's not like that!

Nalia: Finally! I like you Imoen.

PC: Am I allowed to say something in my defense?

Nalia, Imoen, Aerie and Jaheira: NO!

PC: This is hell, isn't it?

Jan: Not hardly, I still have my turnip stash. By the way, my boy, have I ever mentioned how I ended up in Hell once? There I was, laying down a pentagram of turnip skins, when all of a sudden...

PC: Shut up Jan!

Imoen: This is the hero of Baldur's gate?

PC: So not helping sis.

Nalia: He's actually good as long as he keeps his mouth shut.

Jaheira: Yep.

Aerie: Right.

Imoen: Dead on.

PC: So hating you all now.

 ;D
Jansens aren't as harmless like everybody supposes!
They got them stumpy legs and puffy potato noses!
And what's with all the turnips?
Why do they eat so much root vegetables, anyway?
Jansens, Jansens,
It must be Jansens!!!

Er, women are supposed to hate each other, not the other way around. Right?

To my experience, they'll drop it(temporary) to bash on a guy, if he's acting particularly...jerky.  At least to my personal experience...

Oh and just to say that I think the Nalia romances actually do succeed in making her a sympathetic, even likable, spoilt rich kid with no sense of real hardship...

Yeah, its the only thing that will cause women to drop a good catfight...bashing on a guy, maintaining "da Sista-hood"

Userunfriendly still here?  Hey, buddy, ever get past the Aerie obsession? ;)

I was thinking that there might be a suitable response/threat to Imoen treating her poor brother, who just went through so much to save her from Irenicus: 

Threaten to download the Imoen Romance mod if she keeps this up and give her a brand new perspective on why her brother's ex-girlfriends, or anyone else who knows about their true relationship as half-siblings, being around bothers her.

I somehow doubt much/any progress has been made on a ToB version but... I for one check back regularly on the off chance. I always liked Nalia back in the day, enjoyed this mod immensely, and am sad that that story has no closure. Even if it was just a tragic death/memory erasure/possession or something to explain why she doesn't act quite right in ToB, that'd be something, hah.

If Jason decides to continue on Nalia ToB(which I hope he eventually does; if I'm around, I'll probably help with coding - "probably", mind) - it will likely happen after TBH is out. So look out for TBH release at http://planewalkergames.com/ . :)

I don't normally have creative conundrums but I do with Nalia in TOB. I am genuinely uncertain that a couple of story decisions really are the right ones. But I do intend to provide closure. Sooner or later.

Well how about the best that you can do jc?  Just knowing something is being made, even if it is little by little every other Sunday is progress.  Even George R.R. Martin has to be making some notable progress.

I'm more likely to say "Okay, I'm doing nothing this weekend but writing Nalia-TOB."

Unfortunately that won't be this weekend, as I've felt pukey all day.

Get better soon. You know, Russian writers have a secret(they never seem to want to share it, but I'll level with you): great ideas come in the shower. Always.

(Nalia would probably be scandalized that someone's thinking of her there, though.)

Well, I have no Russian ancestry, but I do have a lot of Polish and Lithuanian blood.

That may explain why the maxim doesn't quite hold true for me.

I thought up One-Day NPCs in the shower, you see.

Oh gosh. And you started "One-Day NPCs: Superior to a quickie?" thread, too!

...I guess I should shut up before it turns into a Romantic Encounter-y discussion. :)

Great stuff comes from Poland! (The Witcher)... and lots of great shower scenes. (I'll stop there)  ;)

Seriously, dude, I'm pretty sure this is my first post on this site, but I've been periodically checking to see if you've finished the de'Arnise romance (TOB).  I've noticed several other posters indicating they've been checking too; I think you have a underground fan base/following!  Baldur's Gate is my favorite game of all time and I have been waiting to re-play a Baldur's Tutu (with ultimately tragic fling with Dynaheir) followed by a lasting bond with *your* Nalia (I know your name from the many great mods you've done elsewhere)...but I want it to be complete, cause I'm an all or nothing kinda guy. 

One request (I know this may be too much to ask - and maybe this is what is tearing at you?):  happy ending please?  ...please don't kill her.  This world has enough unhappy endings to let it invade our fantasy worlds too.  If you are truly torn, maybe you could do a 'gotcha' kind of ending, where we 'think' she's not going to make it, but it all works out (ala 'Stranger than Fiction')

Ok...I've said my peace.  Just want to give you major props, again, jcompton - you do damn good work!

No, no, I wouldn't kill off Nalia as part of the romance thread, that's not on the table and really wouldn't fit the "theme" of the romance, in any case.

Thanks for the kind words.

Well I am just glad to read this mod will eventually get to ToB. Having wooed Nalia so far a bit I hope to continue doing so in ToB.  Though the sentence 'Is that all? I was expecting more.' right after certain conversations was a bit disturbing...

Thanks for hte great work, Al

Yo. Great mod (I can never figure out why this was not available by default), but I do have a few things to mention, though some of these might have been mentioned somewhere else.
1. Music. It's a nice music that fits her, but guitar music doesn't really fit in with BG2's middle-age fantasy setting.
2. Nalia's speech seems to run a little long compared to the default characters. The writing is not bad, but it seemed unnatural at times.

Any word on the ToB release? I've been waiting to play the game thinking that it would have been poping up about now.
"I can kill with a single word. I can hurl a ball of fire into the midst of my enemies. I rule a squadron of skeletal warriors, who can destroy by touch alone. I can raise a wall of ice to protect those I serve. The invisible is discernible to my eyes. Ordinary magic spells crumble in my presence."

Is it any point in using this mod if CHARNAME can't romance Nalia? I'm mostly interested in getting a closure to the quest and find out who The Boss is?
