    [​IMG] Could someone please make a Minsc romance? I would very much like to see one. He's strong, gallant, a force of good, and unique. I have absolutely no idea how to do this myself. Thank you. :D :hmm: :help:

    haha i like it, Minsc the romantic

    there was talks where a female PC could do something so minsc get slightly more intelligent, then the two of you try to help minsc get his intellegence back, even though it is the mod that raised it in the first place.

    but i think the concept may have been dump

    A Mazzy romance would be awesome, too. A force of good as well, cute as all hell, and besides - what can be better than a halfling lass?

    Hasn't been too long since these exact questions popped up in another thread.

    1. Addenyd, NPC who would romance Minsc: dropped.

    2. Minsc romance mod for PC: hasn't gotten off the ground AFAIK.

    3. Mazzy romance mod for PC: well on its way.

    I would be willing to write the scripts for a Minsc romance. Heck, I used to go around quoting Minsc irl. :)

    I find a Minsc romance more disturbing than any other out there.

    Maipai:
    Me too! Though my favored quote by him is from ToB - "Doan't teach MY hamster to suck eggs!!!". What adds to the hilarity, is that in Hebrew, which is my native languege, "eggs" is used as a commonplace word for testicles, same as "balls" is used in english.

    I agree, kuemper. Just what role would Boo play?

    I could see why some might not like a Minsc romance, but more disturbing than the Imoen romance mod? That I don't get. Next we'll be seeing a mod for a Gorion romance.

    never actually played the imoen romance, is it as incest filled as it sounds?

    and yes im not really sure how a Minsc romance would go. i think Minsc (and boo i cant forget boo) would be too busy heroing to get involved with someone, the closest Minsc gets to a romance is the choosing a new witch thing, with Aerie or Nalia.

    Well, from my PoV, Minsc is mentally challenged :rolleyes: or several sandwiches short of a picnic. :grin: He may be a man, but he comes across as very childlike, which is creepier than snuggling with your half-sibling.

    yes, i dont think a minsc romance would be as good as any of the other romances available. now if the was a mod that when you try to romance a NPC that minsc has choosen to be his new witch, minsc is at first weary of your intentions with his witch or something like that

    he is more of a guy that when your not macking on some chick you are romancing you can get a beer with or defeat evil with.

    a minsc romance would be fairly limited i think, minsc is too preoccupied with getting into the ice dragon berserker lodge or whatever its called

    yes, it that idea does seems a little more plausible than a full romance with minsc.

    the minsc romance concept (whether it has been dropped or not) seems a little weak,
    there was talks where a female PC could do something so minsc get slightly more intelligent, then the two of you try to help minsc get his intellegence back, even though it is the mod that raised it in the first place.

    i dont really see the point to it. i like minsc as the big dumb guy who deals out the excessive damage (well sometimes), but a romantic? not really a minsc thing, but i suppose there could be a mod where you do a series of trials with Minsc so he may redeem himself and try to get in the Ice Dragon Berserker Lodge, but that more of a straight quest mod rather than a romance type mod

    Minsc gets annoyed when people try to take Boo from him, how will boo feel when someone tries to take Minsc from him

    would be more interesting to have a Jan Jansen Romance. or a Cernd Romance


    dug this up on the PPG forums

    Re: How about a quest to restore Minsc's head wound?

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I think it was another forum, but I posted to a romanceable Minsc mod thead.

    It was along similar lines, but much, much darker: PC is romancing Minsc, but wants to smarten him up a bit. Convinces him to get that restorative magic that everyone has been suggesting since the days of Branwen and Dynaheir. Minsc suddenly sees a dramatic increase to his intelligence and wisdom (well, not superhuman, but, say to 12 or 13 in each). But it doesn't last. He either sustains another head wound or the magic fades, and he's left with his old stats and the memory of what it was like not to think so slowly. He resents the pc for showing him something he can never have again. If you've read "Flowers for Algernon" or seen "Charlie" you probably know what I'm talking about. The challenge here would be to resist the urge to smarten him up and just let him be himself.

    Err... the idea of a Minsc romance is spine-chilling.

    The Imoen romance was easily the best mod I ever played. Period.

    Personally, I've got mixed feelings about it. I mean, Addenyd was a great idea - who doesn't want to see Minsc happy with someone? - but romancing him yourself... That's just not how your interactions with him should be. He's the fun one of the group, and starting up something as potentially serious as a romance just doesn't feel right. I'd probably still try it out if it were made, but I don't think I'd get very far unless the writers were very good.
