    Ciao!

    So I've started playing ToB again after a couple of years break and is enjoying it more than ever. Most major quest are still stuck in my memory but I'm still rediscovering the smaller parts of the game.
    Like for instance yesterday I accidently stumbled upon Shangalars lair whom I had totally forgotten about. Nice reunion.

    I've started plenty pf games but most characters are scrapped halfway through chapter 2 mostly because of bad planning.

    I've been toying around a bit with Shadowkeeper to increase the replayability of the game, for example making Korgan a Barbarian or Wizardslayer and Edwin the sorcerer... that sort of thing. Mazzy the paladin? Cleric?
    But if I remember correctly there's a mod made for this that can do a better job than SK but can't seem to find it. The mod database for this game is huge though so I've might have overlooked.

    Would an Edwin Sorcerer still get bonus spells from his amulet?

    I'm planning an evil Kensai/thief at the moment and is trying to decide when to dual class him. Level 9 or 12? He gets bonuses every 4th level but do that mean he gets his bonus at level 12 or actually 13?
    I figured since he can't use bows I'd have him dual wield but I'm tired of the old clishé katana/longsword combo so I was more thinking shortswords daggers and such. What would be good combinations?
    I have weimers underrepresented weapons mod installed.

    But why not a quarterstaff? He could still backstab with it and be able to attack from a safer distance. Hmmm... thoughts?

    Would Keto fit in an evil party? How would I make her an effective asset to the party? I brought her through SoA once, does she have more personal quests than the bard competition?

    The same goes with Kelsey, will he tolerate evil acts or will he leave the party? In the last game I played I had him in the party to the end of chapter 6 and will anything else happen after C and her goons are dealt with?

    Eh, long post. While I'm at it, what other bonuses does Anomen get other than the Wis increase when he becomes a knight?

    Level1NPCs is the mod you're looking for.

    As far as a kensai/thief goes, level 13 is ideal for the dual class (extra 1/2 attack), but the downside is the length of time it takes to get your kensai abilities back. It all depends on how much patience you have. As far as weapons go, I like dual wielding bladed weapons; daggers are a bit under-powered for my tastes, though. Just make sure that, after you dual to your thief, you don't put any points into weapons that you put points into as a kensai until after you get your kensai abilities back (otherwise, the points you put in as a thief will be wasted).
