Ayden has been my pet project for the last decade and a half. Whenever I'm testing new techniques or engine features, they invariably end up as part of the project in one way or another. Initially, it was only meant to be something fun for me and my friends to mess around with but, as time went on, I decided I wanted other people to experience it too. This will be my first public release of the mod, marking the completed integration with SoD. I don't know how...
After more than five years and many patches, I've finally decided to complete Siege of Dragonspear. Most of you have probably played it by now, and that's okay. I just wanted to share my thoughts on the game from a perspective of someone who's been playing and modding Baldur's Gate for over two decades.
This review will be somewhat less structured than my previous ones since I doubt anyone really needs me to go in-depth for every single aspect of the game. That said, I'll try to point out...

This download contains a complete soundset for Geralt, Ciri, Yennefer and Dandelion, using the sound from the Witcher 3. A portrait is also included for each character. The sounds are high quality rips directly from the game, thanks to the work of Mechtanks mod (https://www.nexusmods.com/witcher3/mods/3058?tab=description)
A selection of 33 fantasy-style male and female portraits:
Char1 ; elf female
Char2 ; human or half-elf or hobbit, female Monk
Char3 ; human or half-elf female, Samurai/Kensai

An extensive Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition guide about how to build a party, how to best use spells, etc. Goes into detail about the races, classes, kits, NPCs, spells, familiars, spirit animals and more.
A custom soundset for Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn, made with voice emotes from the female wizard in Diablo 3. It has been extensively tested, both on a standalone game (BG2/ToB vanilla) and with mods like BGT installed. The female wizard was voiced by Grey DeLisle, who also voiced the antagonist "Azula" in the animated series, Avatar: The Last Airbender.
These would probably work best with a chaotic-aligned female PC.
If you've ever wondered what it's like to to run a kingdom in a fantasy world, this game... probably isn't the best example of that. Don't get me wrong, Kingmaker does a decent job, but it is, first and foremost, a D&D game where you walk around killing foul beasts and rescuing maidens in distress. You are a king more as a hobby than an actual job.
That said, for any fan of Pathfinder, this game was a godsend. Although, it's probably one of the most dull adventure paths you can...
These are the portraits from my EE portrait resource as well with a few extra from the net cropped and resized to original classic standards. Rather neat portraits in the style of BG, if I do say so myself. Are also compatible with BG2 classic.
Measurements are straight forward. Large pictures are 110x170, and the small ones are 38x60.
Artists are too many to name, really. But if anyone cares, I credited a list of people in my EE portrait resource. As always, I don't claim to have created...
This is a modification to the standard way Icewind Dale 2 runs. It allows for changes not
originally put there by the game creators such as new limitations for classes, changing how
feats work, etc.
Current features include:
allow Paladins of Mystra to level as sorcerers and wizards
Paladins of helm can level as Watchers of Helm
Keep skill points between levels
new weapon finesse rules
Let monks wear robes
Druids can spontaneously cast Nature's Ally
Cheat keys enabled on...
A complete walkthrough of the third game of the Bard's Tale trilogy, Bard's Tale 3 Remastered. Solutions to all puzzles and pathways to completing every part of the game are provided. Advice on combat and how to build an effective party are also provided.
Not compatible with Enhanced Edition due to using the BGII engine.
Many BG->IWD voice packs are a simple copy-paste job, and lack lines for the many response triggers added by Icewind Dale. Not so here - the original lines have been reshuffled, and quest and party dialogue plundered for new clips. The same familiar voicework, an expanded range of expression.
Includes Edwin, Imoen, Jaheira, Kagain, Khalid, Minsc, Montaron, Xan and Xzar.
Subdued, lore-friendly and cringe-free, this soundset uses Jeff Baker's iconic performance in Morrowind. A good fit for any world-weary Rogue, Drow or otherwise. Has occasional instances of Dunmer slang, but you can attribute it to your Forgotten Realms language of choice.
