Foundling: Between the Shades BETA is available. The mod fully playable, may need some polishing. I've decided to made the BETA version available.

Foundling is the thrall of Thaxll'ssillvia, the Shadow Dragon found in the Temple Ruins. He is cold, calculating, and determined to be freed from his influence. He can never oppose his master on his own, but everything can change thanks to the influence of the Bhaalspawn.

Foundling is a Shadow Adept who can use Shadow Weave Magic as well as some Shadow Magic. The mod introduces a new kind of magic with its own advantages and disadvantages. Even though Foundling is recognised as a mage, he can't use the Weave. In exchange he is given his own dark spells - mostly dark versions of well known spells, but there are some brand new ones too.

The mod is both an NPC and quest mod and introduces new characters, areas, music, items, soundset etc.

Foundling is not romanceable, but the character will still talk to you frequently, so no worries.

Thank you to everyone who helped me in releasing this project!

Infinity Engine Modding News / Tsuki BG2 OpenBeta released
« on: August 25, 2012, 06:08:05 PM »
Tsuki BG2 OpenBeta released

In Faerun there are both heroes and villains. Some from the second group want gold. Some want power. Some just one to kill. Tsuki is the worst type: he want pleasure in its every aspect. He wants to be on a winner's side. Is such a man to be trusted? Can you let another Bodhi's servant join you?
Tsuki BG2 is a continuation of Mysteries of the Sword Coast NPC - an egocentric mage/thief half elf. When compared to Edwin, the Red Wizard seems to be nice. Tsuki is a hard-to-stand male diva, with a relationship path to discover by both male and female characters, but if I were you, I wouldn't expect anything romantic. He's not that kind of guy.
The mod includes both SoA and ToB part, yet ToB isn't big.

Yasraena / Crossmod content
« on: August 06, 2012, 03:26:25 PM »
Hey ho!
I would like to add some crossmod talks between Skie and Yasraena (and Skie/Saerileth talks), but as far as I know, permission is needed. I tried to send Sillara a message at SHS, but it seems she's not using the old email or something. I was wondering, if any of you is in touch with her.
CoM_Sola -> maybe your permission is enough?

BG1 NPCs for SoA / BG1 NPCs for BG2 vs stand-alone NPCs
« on: July 26, 2012, 01:00:14 AM »
Hi! I know this question was already mentioned somewhere (or even a couple of times, huh), but as we all know, there are stand-alone NPCs from BG1 like Kulyok's Xan / Tiax, Kivan, my Quayle... how does the mod work with thsese? I'm asking because I'm in the middle of preparations to release Skie BG2 (my very first BG2 mod that recently was translated into English).

Cheers! :)

Infinity Engine Modding News / Colours of Infinity released
« on: December 01, 2011, 09:05:37 AM »
Have you ever played Tales of the Deep Gardens or Innershade? Those are two rather oneiric quest mods which allow you to discover brand new places and solve some mysteries. That's how Colours of Infinity mod series is like.
Now, two new mods joined previous CoI mods. The new ones are Yvette Romance and The White Queen. First is possibly new romance for male Charname, while The White Queen is another quest mod - this time Silent Swamp is our setting.
All those mods are now gathered under one name of Colours of Infinity (so you won't find old TotDG/Innershade forums - old topics were moved to new forums). Check out the project here.

Infinity Engine Modding News / Yoshimo Romance released
« on: April 23, 2011, 11:45:43 PM »
Hi, people!
After months of my work the official beta of the Yoshimo Romance is up!

   

Yoshimo Romance is a project which introduce brand new romance for infamous rogue - Yoshimo. Curious yes, my friend? The mod includes plenty of content for both SoA and ToB portions of Baldur's Gate 2. Apart from the core component, players can install optional PIDs, additional non-romantic talks, and the already mentioned ToB part of the mod.
I did my best in creating this mod - it offers you a sad romance strongly linked with the plot of Baldur's Gate 2: SoA. Even though after Jon's death romance could possibly end, I decided to add ToB part.
I did my best in making him as in-character as possible, but writing mods is always somehow subjective. It's hard to make a romance for character who's usually hiding all cards in his hand. Again, I did my best.
Note that this romance is written as extension of his original plot, so his fate is somehow written...but even a condamned soul shall be remembered.

For now the mod shall be among mini-mods of G3. What shall happen to it later? We'll see. I need some of your feedback. The romance is less standard than some other, but is Yoshimo a standard NPC? Heh, I doubt, my friend! I'd call him a man of surprise!

So, now I'm waiting for some opinions! But first of all... happy gaming and wealthy Easter!

Infinity Engine Modding News / Two announcements from Lava
« on: April 03, 2011, 03:25:19 AM »
So, here are my small announcements, dear players :)

First one is the new release of Varshoon NPC. He's an illithid, who can join your party (however, check the readme, because there are some restrictions). He won't be silent, but remember who he is! You should be sure of the replies you choose, because mod is written in "influence system". Your influence on him will be summarised in Underdark quest! In the new version I replaced old portraits with new ones. They are much better. I also added some ToB banters.

Second announcement is v.2 of Eilistraee's Song you may not have heard about. ES is a mod that expands the plot introduced by Solaufein. If you follow the right path, you will be allowed to enter the camp of drow renegates - followers of Eilistraee. Mod is compatibile with Solaufein NPC. It introdues new area, creatures, items, minor quests and music.

Cheers!

Infinity Engine Modding News / SHS: Innershade v1.0 released
« on: June 28, 2010, 02:45:21 PM »
I've just released my new mod - Innershade

"Follow a path between the trees to find a very new village to visit: the village of Innershade. It's been having some problems lately: some people disappeared, and the attacker was never seen. You must stop the guilty party, if you can. Solving the problem may be not enough; getting rid of the attacker is only one of the ways to handle this. The second is understanding the motives and past that became a great burden. In the end, you may have to become a judge of sorts. In the village, you will also find some minor problems, and even a little affair. Meet Eva, a female blacksmith with a really explosive character. Listen to Li'l Bud's tales about heroes and villains. If you are a bard, maybe you will learn a new skill from a not-too-kind minstrel. Don't forget to visit Granny Bunny, a really nice and kind elderly lady, who will tell you some stories from her past. What else can she offer? Hot tea with some jam, homemade biscuits, and a warm smile."

I hope you will enjoy the mod, dear players!  ;)

Infinity Engine Modding News / La'Viconia Tweak released
« on: January 12, 2010, 03:37:12 AM »
While working on other mods, last weekend I decided to make a little break. Then I started to wonder... 'hm... Viconia used to hide... Viconia killed some people near Beregos... she's a drow... she probably know something about poisons etc...' and then one more though came 'and that dexterity... wait! She surely is a bit like a thief!' so I made a tweak that makes her assasin/cleric. As thief she has only 7 lvl and doesn't level up. What's more I gave her new innate ability, holy symbol of shar, a little penalty when she wanders during the day. Since she has a bit different animation now (the thief's one instead of cleric's) the optional component gives her a bit recoloured portrait (the animations hood is blue so now the one on her portrait was recoloured also into blue. That makes the better match.) The tweak is available in 2 languages: Polish and English.

CoB - Polish forums with La'Viconia Tweak thread (only in Polish language).

Cheers!

I am not sure if this is a right place for this post. I hope it is :P
I just wanted to say that I released 2 new mods in English (one of them already existed but only in Polish version).
First is Quayle BG2 NPC (aka Aerie-Be-Gone!) - we are able to kill Aerie and join Quayle instead. Installation of this mod doesn't mean that Aerie will allways die. Player will have to make a decision during the game. More info can be found in his readme and spoilers txt files. The mod isn't a very big one - something like Kulyok's Tiax, but it gives a new oportunity for those who hate Aerie.
2nd project is Varshoon - an Illithid NPC. It is also a BG2 NPC. This mod contains a "respect path" (a plenty of dialogues), new kit only for Varshoon, new paperdoll for all illithids, some items and extended plot of illithid tunnels in Underdark (if we have Varshoon in our party). He can be joined in illithids place in sewers under Athkatla. There is only SoA part for the moment.

Don't be discouraged by my english :P Both mods were proofread :P

Both mods can be download at SHS in Misc. Released Mods section. Here are the links to the threads.

Varshoon
Quayle

Cheers!
