|IWD2 Bonus Merchant by Westley Weimer [Official Site - More Info & Support]||374kb||Download|
This mod adds Ribald Barterman as a bonus merchant selling BG2 equipment. He appears in the Gallaway Trading Post and Conlan's Smithy in Kuldahar. All of the items have been faithfully converted to Third Edition / Icewind Dale 2 rules and statistics. For example, Katanas are now (Masterwork) Bastard Swords, etc.
Available items: Equalizer, Flail of Ages, Gesen Short Bow, Jaheira's Harper Pin, Blackblood, Jansen Adventurewear, Flasher Master Bruiser Mate, Hallowed Redeemer, Firecam Full-Plate, Mace of Disruption, Shadow Dragon Armor, Drow Elven Chain, Tsuki no Ken, Corthala Family Blade, Corthala Family Armor, Sword of Arvoreen.
|Undead Targos Mod by Westley Weimer [Official Site - More Info & Support]||334kb||Download|
The Undead Targos Mod changes the opening area in IWD2. The Town of Targos is now attacked by undead monsters (and some minor goblins). It is still designed for level 1 Parties, but it is no longer a walk in the park. In addition, this mod allows you to complete the Targos fedex quests more rapidly. It's kinda light on innovative plot devices, but the author was just playing around. Basically, this will make your next run through the otherwise-boring tutorial chapter slightly more exciting. In addition, it also includes a component that makes the final confrontation with Torak slightly more difficult (i.e., it gives Torak some half-orc spellcasters that work in concert to back him up).
|Icewind Gate II (beta) by Westley Weimer [Official Site - More Info & Support]||459kb||Download|
Icewind Gate II is (was?) a project to automatically convert the content from BG2 to the IWD2 engine (and third-edition D&D rules). This should combine the best of both worlds: IWD2's intelligent rule system and BG2's plot. Currently the project is in the beta-testing phase, and will probably remain there indefinitely. If you are interested in contuining this project, drop the author a line.
At this point, your best bet to get through IWG2 is with the help of our IWG2 walkthrough, available here.
