    OK, Rev 2 of the Light of Selune mod has been released. It's entirely about
    a number of minor tweaks to classes and races.

    Please note that on the mods page http://www.sorcerers.net/Games/IWD2/index_mods.php that there's currently no mention of Light Of Selune being at rev 2. Trust me, it is.

    Here's a list of the changes made in Rev 2 of LoS.


    Rev 2 Changes

    * Removed Ranger 1d8 HP, returning to the standard 1d10. (Reason: no sense in weakening an already weak class.)

    * Removed the Ranger improved Reflex save progression. (Reason: The Reflex save tweak was buggy in multiclass situations.)

    * Added a free Lightning Reflexes feat for Rangers at creation. (Reason: this is a mild replacement for the removal of the buggy "improved" Reflex save progression.)

    * Removed the Ranger +1 missile AB and damage bonus every 3rd level. (Reason: it wasn't working properly, or at least not visibly so.)

    * Added bonus feats for Rangers and Paladins every 4th level starting at level 4. (Reason: to "improve" two seemingly weak classes.)

    * Added 2 additional bonus feats for Rogues at levels 4 and 7. (Reason: to "improve" a seemingly weak rogue class.)

    * Changed cost of the Alchemy skill for Rogues to 1 point. (Reason: to make the rather weak Envenom Weapon rogue feat more attainable in normal mode.) ((Honestly not sure that it's worth the effort even with this change ...))

    * Increased damage produced by traps by 50%. (Reason: to "improve" a seemingly weak rogue class by increasing the danger posed by traps.)

    * Added a +1 AC "size" bonus for Rock Gnomes (but not Deep Gnomes) and all Halflings. This bonus is implemented as giving the Dodge feat free for for these races, regardless of DEX.

    * Changed Weapon Focus and Specialization to +1 AB/+2 damage for Focus, and +2 AB/+4 damage for Specialization. (Reason: to strengthen the weapon feats to make them more worthwhile.)

    * All talking skills have been changed to in-class 1 point skills for all classes. (Reason: to make it more possible for classes other than the high CHA paladin, sorcerer, or bard classes to be decent party spokesmen.)

    Awesome idea! :D But then, Roy does look like a diplomat very much already... might have to give this idea a try myself.

    I'll certainly give this mod a shot, once I finish my run in HoF mode with my current party. Thanks a lot crucis, it looks might interesting.

    Mod CTD's game when loading Fell Wood

    I had this mod installed with a bunch of others and everything was working fine till I went to load Fell Wood after leaving Wandering Village. It crashes to desktop every time and never makes it into Fell Wood. So I reinstalled clean with just the patch and installed mod's 1 by 1 and this one happened to be the first one I did. I was able to enter Fell Wood before installing this mod and afterwards I'm unable to anymore.. Crashes to desktop. When I uninstalled mod it works again.

    Not sure why, I haven't seen anyone else list the problem, but right now it's only a fresh install of IWD2, the patch, the Non-Linear part of Ease mod, and this mod and it will crash.

    Try PMing crucis about it, I'm not sure if he's checking the forums actively at this point.

    I’ve been using this mod for my current run through, and it’s added some nice variety. Thank you for that Crucis!!

    One point that I found rather disconcerting is that there is no mention made in the readme that this mod changes the Holy Avenger sword from a 1 handed sword to a 2 handed sword! I found this out, to my great chagrin, last night when my longsword focused paladin could not properly wield this long awaited weapon!!

    I ultimately installed the “Improved Holy Avenger” feature from the Ease of Use mod, which returned Cera Sumat to its proper, 1 handed configuration. In spite of the EoU version incorrectly listing this sword as doing +10 damage, +10 attack and +30 SR (it actually does +5 damage, +5 attack and +15 SR), at least it’s the correct weapon type.

    Crucis, I’d like to strongly suggest that you add a note to users about this change in future versions. I’ve even taken the liberty of updating your readme text below for your convenience (and the convenience of future players). Or better yet, this would be great to see as an optional change for those who prefer to stick with 1 handed swords.

    By the way, the bold lettering on the word is was a grammatical correction that I noticed needed to be made. You refer to a single feature, so "is" should be used instead of "are" to describe that feature.
