    [​IMG] Haven't played in quite a while... it's been so long that I may do Irenicus' dungeon!

    Anyway, I wanted to ask what mods you guys consider worth taking. Please keep in mind that I wont have ToB installed. Also, I'd prefer suggestions towards NPC mods, banter mods and quest mods. Kit mods as well, though limited to the warrior classes.

    And has anybody ever used the "Spellsword" kit from the "Art of Weaving" mod? The site doesn't carry a detailed description of the kit.. I would've tried the "Riskbreaker" kit but it's quite overpowered..

    Tactics,Improved Battles are a fun mode to have, and some components are SoA only friendly.

    Checked Slightly Improved Ilych mod? You can not have Tactic's Ilych as it requires ToB, but that one can help you to have fun! All comments were good on 'Slightly Improved Ilych' mod. It even has an active topic right in this forum! Go see it!

    Improved Battles, Unfinished Bussiness, Quest Pack, Banter Pack, Flirt Pack, Item Upgrade, and Sola, Kelsey, Valen NPCs. Be careful though some components msy not work without TOB, but hte mod itself says it when you are installing.

    Most can be found here:
    http://www.gibberlings3.net/

    Or try Sorcerer's Place but you shoul already know that!

    Many of the mods listed are actually at Pocket Plane Group, http://www.pocketplane.net . You might also grab Keto while you're there.

    @jcompton

    will keto work with an SoA only install? i recall reading somewhere that she required ToB and my ToB is gone right now..

    the mods that I've successfully installed so far are Unfinished Business v14, Quest Pack v2.21 and the Neh'Taniel NPC. I'd be interested in another good (Read: not buggy) NPC to take along though, preferrably a well-written one and romancable by a male PC, any suggestions?

    Also, would anyone happen to know whether or not the new version of Tortured Souls requires ToB or not? because I downloaded it and it wont install properly but afaik it's compatible with an SoA-only install.

    Thanks all
