[Mod] Ayden Project 2.5

Embrace the Shadows

  1. Keneth

    Ayden has been my pet project for the last decade and a half. Whenever I'm testing new techniques or engine features, they invariably end up as part of the project in one way or another. Initially, it was only meant to be something fun for me and my friends to mess around with but, as time went on, I decided I wanted other people to experience it too. This will be my first public release of the mod, marking the completed integration with SoD. I don't know how many people will decide to play it, but if it makes a single person enjoy their BG experience just a little bit more, I'll consider it a success.

    About Ayden Project

    Ayden is primarily a companion mod, but comes bundled with a set of additional components.

    • Warlock Kit: Warlock is a Thief class kit based on the Warlock class from 3rd edition D&D.
    • Ayden NPC: A recruitable NPC with custom dialogues, banter, and quests.
    • Shadow Walking: A feature offered by the NPC to reduce travelling time.
    • Ayden's Refuge: A pocket plane where the party can rest and store items.
    • Item Crafting: A simple item crafting system offered in the form of a dialog with the Forge.
    • Wands for Thieves: Enable the use of wands for all thief kits (including warlock).
    • Thief Proficiencies: Enable mace and spear proficiency for all thief kits.
