    I've never been heavily invested in the game's option to romance companions, but i liked romancing Viccy the best, with Jaheira a close second - I like how Viconia's romance gives the option to have her change alignment, giving you a feeling you had some sort of lasting impact on the character, though navigating the dialogue to get to that outcome is a pain in the ass without using a romance guide.

    Also, why is Imoen an option ? Is..is there an Imoen romance mod ? :nolike:

    I enjoyed the Nalia romance but it had issues with its mod status and having two of them and as I recall neither was 100% complete for the entire game.

    I enjoyed Jaheira quite a bit.

    The one I really wanted to play but never ended up getting finished was a Mazzy romance.

    I am surprised that we have Nalia, Imoen , and especially Saerileth and Kelsey is not on the list. Of the group of mod romances I think that one is the most well known so kind of funny that is not on there.

    I know there are other modded romances out there-never finished one with an elven slayer.

    Plus the lady from Golden Axe.

    BTW Sure I'm bad with names when it comes to video games. But I'm so smooth in person I once asked a woman I'd been having lunch with for a couple of months something like "You're tall aren't you?"

    Also it may not count as a romance but maybe that fling with Bodhi touched your character in a way he'll never forget..

    I'd say Jaheira's romance is the most detailed in the SoA part, but Viconia's romance has better extension in ToB.

    Haven't tried many modded NPCs, or modded romances, though.

    Jaheira gets me a Ring of Wizardry, so I always love her for that! :)

    I believe that you can still do that encounter without doing the romance but it takes FOREVER (much much MUCH longer than it does in the romance which can already be a bit slow) to come along.
