First of all I'd like to thank you for the effort that went into this mod. It's well written and helps further establish a character that prior to this I just wrote off as a cheap replacement for Imoen. Thanks to the de'Arnise romance, I finally gave Nalia a fair shot, and she did not disappoint when it came to both personality and firepower!
This mod also got me to consider actually writing my own Nalia-based mod for Throne of Bhaal, as she is drastically lacking in content, though there seem to be hints of Nalia having a personality shift and a possible subplot that was abandoned for some reason by BioWare.
In any case, here's my review!
* I enjoyed the pace of the romance. It was slow going, which felt appropriate as Nalia strikes me as someone considers herself very much a noble first, rebellious or no. She tries to keep the relationship between you and her professional, though you manage to wear her down over time and she gradually opens up to you.
* The dialogue and length of her Lovetalks. Let's face it, they're long. Nalia has a lot to say and - especially in the beginning stages of the romance - will prattle on about her upbringing, her family, her responsibility to help the less fortunate and her unyielding ideals towards equality. In fact I noticed that Nalia practically ignores any response you give her and will continue to preach on, unless you happen to say something that really grabs her attention - ie: piss her off. I feel this is a good thing though and rings well with her character. Nalia is self-absorbed and incredibly insufferable; almost reaching Anomen-level proportions, and anyone that wants to pursue a relationship will have a thick shell to crack and a lot of idealist mantra to endure until she actually starts to pay heed to your advances.
* The first night. I loved how you made sure it would only take place in the Keep, as it was special to Nalia. It's little touches like that which make a story great.
* I enjoyed her conflicts with the other girls. Nalia appears to have been written to be rather catty; able to put down and demean the other girls in a very well spoken and eloquent manner as befitting a noble. I found it highly entertaining that she would try to subvert their advances while at the same time being unable(or unwilling) to tell you how she felt. Though I didn't quite feel that your response choices should always end with Nalia's romance ending or the other girl's romance ending. At the point in which these conflicts occur, Nalia and the player aren't even flirting, so it seems kind of unfair that you can, for example, tell Nalia you appreciate her concern but don't mind giving Aerie an ear to listen and a shoulder to cry on because she needs it; this choice abruptly ends a romance with Nalia that hasn't even really begun. It's either that or tell Aerie to jump in a lake. Though I suppose this is in line with how the BioWare romance conflicts are written, too. What I'd really like is to be able to tell Nalia that you don't mind listening to Aerie, but get the chance to talk to Nalia later and ask her something along the lines of, "What was that all about just now?" and explain to her that you don't feel anything for Aerie other than a friendship.
* The flirtpack - I liked it. It struck me as very well put together and never deviated from Nalia's character. Even after the two of you are committed, Nalia almost never "goes wild" and is always self-aware, especially when in the presence of others. There are lines she won't allow you to cross, even after you commit to each other. The few times she does give into her passions are fleeting, as she seems unable to dismiss what she feels as proper. This seems appropriate for someone of her upbringing that despite having a rebellious streak never lets her behavior go into what might be considered disgraceful or unbecoming of a noble. I also liked how the flirtpack included both her thief and mage skills; again another nice touch.
* The "Stronger" conclusion. Predictable but nonetheless satisfying, though it does sort of conflict with a dialogue she has with Imoen in Throne of Bhaal and to me is the only moment in the mod that betrays a conflict of character with Nalia. Personally I think he should have been able to escape, or at the very least Nalia would have reconsidered killing him and left him there to rot. I've got no lover for the guy but it seems out of character for Nalia to kill him. At this point his family name is disgraced and as his life as a noble was everything to him, killing him would be more of an act of mercy than anything.
Top grade mod and definitely worth a play! Here's hoping we see a Throne of Bhaal extension sooner than later!
