    The Trovador REO mod (from Riojano2002) has been updated and is now available with macOS and Linux support.

    Version 2.5.0 is ToB, BGT, BG2:EE and EET compatible (thanks Austin and Gwendolyne), and comes with a few bug fixes.

    Volo is not the only one who knows stories worth telling. There are many troubadours and bards who travel all over Faerûn risking their lives in order to brighten up the taverns we visit.

    This mod adds a very special troubadour, who, for a few gold pieces, will tell you unheard stories and even the origins of certain characters, such as the mysterious Riojano, or Artemis Entreri.You can find him in Waukeen Promenade. It also adds a shop with curious objects.

    [​IMG] It is available in Spanish only

    Note: This mod was first released at Clan REO and has been officially mirrored at Spellhold Studios Clan REO mirror by Ancalagon el Negro.
