    I tried Addding the Khalid Mod, but my game is so overly modded already, it was causing all types of problems. That pause/jump when the party is walking around, etc... I had to diasable it. I am thinking of re-installing the whole shabang though and will include the Khalid NPC mod when I do. How can one not play that mod and still call yourself a BG2 fan?:D

    Out of curiosity, does the Khalid mod disable the Jaheira romance? I mean, you don't have the option to be "that guy", right?

    [​IMG] I seem to recall it disables Jaheira as a romanceable option in the release notes, I haven't downloaded it myself might do in a later version though. Might be worth a quick read. To me Khalid and Dynahaer dying are such intrinsic parts of the storyline I don't know if I would play it in full, much like the Yoshimo restoration mods.

    It would be awesome for someone to create a mod that allowed you have a romance where your evil character forced the romance on one of the characters, like out of fear or something of the type. "YOU ARE NOW MINE, FOREVER! BRUHAHAHAHAHA! :evil:

    [​IMG] That could get... very wrong :mommy:

    I suppose there would have to be a geas or somesuch involved and even then you'd have to be careful where you drew the line :book:

    Very clever :lol:

    I'd actually be tempted by that as a writing excersize, not me and Anomen :outta:, an NPC forced to the players side and possibly as a love interest would certainly come from a different angle.

    Would be quite a challenge. I'll have to figure out when I'm free next and see if I can come up with anything usable. :hmm:

    Funny that you should mention that, b/c Zireael, the author of the Khalid MOD, and I, have just agreed to do some cross banter stuff bewteen our MODs.
    It may take a while since I live in Los Angeles and he/she (Ha! I have no idea.) lives in Poland(?) which is a total different time zone and English may or not be his/her first language, but eventually it will get done. :happy:

    Zireael is a she and is studying English AFAIK.

    Well, let's see how long time it takes before I've finished BG1. There's quiet many doppel gangers atm, and I'll have to finish them off.

    Cheers

    Success! I finally got Coran into my party last night. So I think I've found all the new NPCs except two: Xan and Kaigan. I'm sure Xan is on board the ship just like he should be, but since I've no interest in taking him with my party, I don't foresee me ever going to look.

    Kaigan, OTOH, is strange. He's supposed to be right in the Promenade, and I can't find him anywhere. I know Blades says he should be on the bottom right portion of the map, so I thoroughly combed through it last night, and I don't see him. Can someone give me a specific landmark within the Promenade to look for? I know there isn't much but there's a row of houses on the extreme bottom right corner of the map, so maybe diagonally across from which one. Or maybe give me an animal of the circus and say go directly to the right from animal X.

    Ok. The Promenade is like a "Stadium" per se. The south part of the "Stadium" is empty in the vanilla game. Kaigan is just south of the nobles dining on the raised decks on the eastern side of the Promena. Also just east of the southwestern entrance/exit to the Promenade. There are 3 or 4 tiers there, he is int the top right hand corner fo that area. There are also some Smugglers and I think a Harlot as well. Jstu keep climbing up the riers to find Kaigan.

    As a warning, he is hard to get to join. It took me SEVERAL tries to do so. I cannot find a consistent dialogue pattern to get him to join. I have asked this question on Smiling Imps forum at SHS.

    For the record, it's Kagain, not Kaigan (as I see this typo continuing throughout the thread).

    Thanks Blades - I know the nobles you're talking about - I'll try due south of there. Based on your description, I think I was too far to the right in my search.

    EDIT: Sorry Tal. You're right of course. It just seem like Kaigan is more sensible.

    KAY-GAN just sounds better than KA-GAIN

    Do not meddle with the affairs of dragons for your are crunchy and good with ketchup.

    Especially red dragons that love to have humans come for a barbeque.

    One more question on the mod - I got Ajantis' body from Tazok after killing him (and a Bag of Holding - very convenient!). Anyway, I took his body with me to both the Temple of Helm and the Order of the Radiant Heart, feeling that one of those two places would be where I'd need to resurrect him. Unfortunately, no. So I dumped his body in a chest at the order - what do I do to get him resurrected?

    ---------- Added 4 hours, 24 minutes and 25 seconds later... ----------

    On Kaigan's store: Most of the armors he sells are taken from the unique armors in Diablo II. As such, the one you probably want to purchase is Leviathan. If you're looking to dispose of somewhere around 50K+ gold that is.

    Do the platinum coins serve any purpose in this mod? I've hoarded several hundred of them at this point. Other than being sellable at a ratio of 1.5 gp to 1 pp?

    Yes.
    When you first enter the slums from teh south side, there is a boy that will lead you east behind the homes and up some steps. Take to the NPCs there, one will lead you to the "Water Gardens", it's another area with a bit of adventure involved.

    There are a few merchants in the Water Gardens that will sell items only for platinum. There is also a money lender there that will give you a better exchange rate. In case you have not found that Water Gardens yet, talk to a boy named, Bren, who will be at the Southern entrance to the slums.

    I do remember seeing Bren. I just thought he was some kid... well apparently not. Of course, I'm now in Spellhold, so it will be some time before I get around to doing that.

    Well you get back to the city, talk to Bren and he will tell you how to unlock a new city area with a few quests in there. Make sure you have Shar-Teel when you talk to Caratacus in the Blue Unicorn and he will let you take part in a series of battle pit battles.

    Also, I just remembered.. To get Ajantis, you have to equip the item into a weapon slot and use it's ability, which will summon him. Imagine my embarrassment that I forgot that myself and could not figure out just how it worked. :o

    I don't recommend using it though, b/c it will summon an old version of Ajantis whose death variable has by now changed and it will crash the game. I'll fix it up for the next version though.

    In the meantime, CLUAConsole:CreateCreature("7XCRE70")
