xx Tenya for BG:EE and Aerie Cameo
January 24, 2015, 09:41:32 PM by Coutelier | Views: 16 | Comments: 2

Hello.  I only started modding some time after Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition came out, trying to learn things as I went along by referring to other mods and tutorials.

This was the first little mod I ever attempted.  It basically just adds a little cameo from Aerie at the Nashkel fair in BG1.  She says that her visited there on occasion, so why not.  She has a couple small things you can help her with, and then she effectively opens a store inside one of the tents.  Orginally, I had been considering adding little cameo appearances from other BG2 npc's to BG1, like coming across Mazzy and her group out adventuring, or Keldorn and/or Anomen out on a mission.  But then BG2:EE came out pretty fast and I lost interest.

Since it was my first mod, I kind of got carried away and put in a lot of silly banter.  I recently rewrote most of it, trimming the dialogue down and cutting most of the silliness.

Tenya for BG:EE is my first attempt at an actual NPC mod, taking one of the minor characters from the game and turning her into a party member.

Tenya is the twelve year old priestess of Umberlee you encounter north of ankheg country, whose mother has been murdered by fishermen and she is determined to get back the bowl they stole from her.  At first I thought I would make her just a funny character, mostly, referencing characters like Hit-Girl or Arya Stark... but, she's actually kind of grown.

She has banters with all the original and EE NPC's (I tried to make them short, usually just two or three lines, to be more in keeping with the original games banters), and a few interjections with other characters around the world.

The player can interact with her as well, check on how she's doing or ask other questions. And also, as her guardian, you will get the chance to make use of her bowl of water elemental control... there's just a little mini-quest to do first.

I changed the stats of the original Tenya creature a bit, giving her more dexterity and wisdom.  I also changed her alignment to Chaotic Neutral, as I feel that better reflects her personality.  She can be quick to anger, abrasive, like many children will at times test the limits of the people around her to see how much she can get away with.  But at other times, she can be surprisingly helpful and even nice, on occassion.

What she doesn't have is voice acting.  She has about two spoken lines in the original game and to be honest I don't think the voice really fits her character... but it's what we've got I'm afraid.  Here is a very big portrait though:

Some time in the future the forums will be using new software. I've had some problems as well as users with the forums either logging in, posting, private messaging and so on. After reading through some topics at SMF's community boards it may be because of the newer versions of PHP and this software is old and is no longer updated. My host uses php V5.3 right now. It seems like these problems came about when they went to that. It'll get worse over time. From what I read at SMF, when my host decides to go to php V5.5, that will pretty much break this forum software. So its time to plan ahead.

Invision is what I will be going with. A lot of mod communities use it, a lot of gaming companies, like Bethesda and Obsidian use it. I like it, I like the extra goodies it comes with, the security features, board and posting control, it has a lot going for it. Its not free. It will cost me money, money that I have to use at the moment to buy another car that is good on gas. The company I work for has moved on the other side of town, which is costing me money in fuel every week. Plus I want to wait for version 4 of their software comes out. So that is the future plans here.

This mod is an NPC/Quest/Store mod. There are two NPCs who will join your party, Callisto and Ninafer.
Callisto is a Chaotic Evil Berserker elf who is looking for action because she is bored with Amn. She has quests that you can take that are not timer dependent.
Ninafer is a Lawful Neutral Fighter/Mage elf who is looking for action as well. She has spent most of her life sheltered in an elven city and she is looking to know more about the world outside her city.
The NPCs will banter with your character and the other joinable NPCs in the party as well as interact with others in the world.
There are a couple of minor quests to under take.
There are a couple of new stores with new items.
A new inn, the Dwarven Hammer can be found in the Slums.
Optional installs include smarter creature scripts and Harder enemies who have been beefed up.
