If Yoshimo joins the party, and he is with the party in Spellhold and dies at the PC's hands, does Keto sing about his life and death at the bard competition in Imnesvale? I see suggestions of that in the TRA files but I'm not able to find the actual song...
I ask this because the mod Keeping Yoshimo allows the player to keep Yoshi alive, i.e., he doesn't die and sticks around until the end of ToB. And if Yoshi's death per the vanilla storyline is integral to Keto's Chapter 6 quest, then the two mods are clearly incompatible.
The only way I can envision the two mods ever becoming compatible is if the Keto mod checks for Yoshi's death variable in order for any and all conversations about his death to fire; and presumably Keto has an alternate song to perform in the event that Yoshimo's death variable is not found. Keto must perform some other song if Yoshimo never joins the party to begin with, right?
But I can also see that this would compromise a great amount of dialogue written around Yoshimo's death. Also, Keto seems to form a fast frienship with Yoshimo that if the above 'fixes' were made would abruptly come to a halt after Spelllhold, with no explanation.
So I fully expect KY and Keto to be (and most likely to remain) fundamentally incompatible. But I figured I would put the suggestion out there as to how they might be reconciled if anyone still maintaining Keto has the interest/will to do it.
(Heh, I guess I'll play devil's advocate for a moment on this: I doubt that it would be particularly jarring for most players if the friendship between Keto and Yoshimo simply ceases after Spellhold. Players would still be able to enjoy Keto in all her other dimensions. And if Keeping Yoshimo is not installed along with Keto, then the mod would still work business as usual (again, assuming all conversations re: Yoshi's death are dependent on a check for his death variable). I can appreciate not wanting to compromise something so integral to the character by eliminating material that is so important to Keto. But if the above mentioned changes were made, for those who want the fullest possible Keto experience, then obviously they should not install Keeping Yoshimo along with Keto.
