Yasraena / Yasraena FAQ

Where exactly do I pick up Yasraena?
At the exit to the surface of Irenicus' dungeon.

Is she compatible with Dungeon-Be-Gone?

Is she romanceable?
Try it and see. :wink:
Males only.

Is she WeiDU?

Why is she in Irenicus' dungeon?
Her quest led her there, and since she was no match for the archmage, she was captured and put in a cell. She escaped in the confusion, like everyone else.

Why is she on the surface?
Being a good drow, certain circumstances allowed her to escape to the surface, and now that she is here, she has a quest to complete.

Why is she a good drow?
Well, she is inclined towards good, but even the purest-of-heart would eventually be corrupted by the evil of the Underdark. However, she had a mentor who encouraged her and kept her on the right path.

Where is she from?
Menzoberranzan, of the House of Arkhenneld.

Will she be voiced?
Yes, by Sillara.

Will she have an original portrait?
Yes, by XVIII. Alternates by Plasmocat and Thorium Dragon.

Why are so many topics in the Yasraena forum locked?
I figured it would be good to put this in the FAQ, especially considering how volatile a subject it is. Sillara and nethrin (creators of this mod) lock only either threads referring old versions or old version bug-reports. The former is outdated, and the latter is irrelevant. So they are locked, not to constrain people, but to keep the forum tidy and avoid confusion.

yasraena is still a very young mod, but she is liked by many fans of the BGII game. we have therefore added some of the praise she has received to her webpage.

the following people have had their quotes used:


if you wish to be removed from this list, or if you wish to be added to this list, let us know--and we'll take care of it. :wink:

the yasraena mod v5 is now available for download. this version fixes the first quest timer, adds a few interjections (not all, wistrik--we'll get to those later...), and non-romantic options for talks 14 and 15. enjoy. this version should be able to be installed over a saved v4 game.

we have received requests for a smaller download, so we've uploaded Yasraena Light, the Semi-Voiced mod. basically, this is the mod with only the .tp2 lines voiced. no banters, interjections, etc. have audio in this version. the download is just over 3 MB (compared to the 12 MB fully-voiced download).

Yasraena / Who *is* Yasraena? R

In a PM to user XVIII at Gibberlings Three forum, Sillara wrote the following character sketch of Yasraena. I am posting it here for your perusal and enjoyment:

Yasraena is a rather confused drow. She was born a female noble, but her house was temporarily out of favor. Her mother did not want it to be known that she had just had a seventh daughter because Yasraena, due to the disfavor of Lolth on her house, was rejected by Lolth (that is the way drow spell the name, at least according to the Drow of the Underdark book). A daughter not allowed to become a priestess would be an enormous shame. So Yasraena was shuffled off for the first few years of her life, trained to believe in the superiority of females but rarely experiencing the benefits herself. She showed great aptitude for sword-play, so when she was old enough, she was disguised as a male and sent into Melee Magthere, the male fighters' academy.

During Yasraena's time at Melee Magthere, two things happened which changed the course of her life. She met Divalir, her master at the academy. He taught her more than sword-play. He taught her how to be good. (This bit will be explained in the mod.) The second thing was that her mother regained the favor Lolth. Yasraena's disguise was then less important, and indeed, her being a female was rather an open secret by then. Her mother let it be known that upon Yasraena's graduation from the academy, she would then be placed in Arach-Tinilith, the school for priestesses. To avoid this, Divalir tried to get Yasraena to the surface.

So, having been raised as an oddity female, a girl-child not allowed to serve Lolth, then been disguised as a male for several years, Yasraena's way of thinking is muddled at times. She is extremely proud, trusts with difficulty, is courageous, and tries to be stoic.

Yasraena is a Chaotic Good drow female fighter NPC. She can be picked up at the exit of Chateau Irenicus. She has a quest (the whole reason she is on the surface), Yasraena-specific weapons, and a whole bunch of banters and interjections just like other modded NPCs. Here are her stats, listed for your perusal:

STR 18/97
DEX 18
CON 12
INT 13
WIS 12
CHA 16

Since she can be picked up in Irenicus' Dungeon, she is of an appropriate experience level for a party just starting BGII.

Yasraena / Yasraena Mod v4 RES

and now, ladies and gentlemen, we present to you: yasraena v4.

thank you to all participants in this forum. your suggestions have been taken to heart.

***perhaps a SPOILER or two***

here's what you'll find new in the v4 release:
v4. Fixed a bug which prevented the party from resting if a particular option was chosen in her dream script.
Added an option to end Yasraena's romance while keeping Viconia's intact.
Added insulting breakup dialogues.
Fixed a bug preventing the female friendship from progressing past the first talk.
Added extra jealousy conversation for male PCs and Divalir. (He is only jealous of males with 15+ CHA.)
Added opportunity to tell Divalir how you feel about Yasraena (if you, in fact, do feel that way).
Added a mind-flayer area interjection.

You can download Yasraena Mod v3 here, but before you do . . . .

1) If you are romancing Yasraena, we recommend you do not download and install version 3, since this will restart your romance. If you're OK with this, then here's a hint: go to the Promenade as soon as possible.

2) If you're not romancing, then it's all good. Go ahead and install.

3) If you're female, you can get her female talks started by visiting the Promenade.

well, we took all of your (posters') advice and made some modifications/additions to yasraena for v3.

we added interjections for the elf-hater, the barkeep at seven vales, the gypsies, and the very-important imoen-kidnapping interjection.

note: the imoen interjection now starts the romance timer. since it's an area-specific interjection, it will fire in an existing game the first time you go to the Promenade.

the ust natha comment is not an interjection but part of her flirt-pack. so, when you visit the drow city, ask her how she feels about being there.

enjoy! icon_biggrin.gif

Yasraena / Yasraena's Weapons RESURRECTION
« on: December 21, 2006, 02:57:44 PM »
Posted: Fri Oct 01, 2004 5:33 am    

Yasraena comes with a pair of personalized weapons. These weapons are of mid-range power (there are many more powerful weapons in the game). We're thinking of making them undroppable, as she would not be interested in using other weapons (i.e., her past ties these weapons to her). Now, she could always equip a different weapon in her main hand, but her offhand would always have the other one equipped. She couldn't use a two-handed weapon or a shield. We're thinking of upgrading them later in the game, but then they would cease to be undroppable (cuz I don't think we can code it to make them appear in her hands). Whacha think??

Hello and welcome to the Yasraena NPC forum.

This mod will be a joint effort, with Sillara of the Tamari and I both working on its development.

Yasraena is a Chaotic Good drow female fighter NPC in the making. She will be able to be picked up at the exit of Chateau Irenicus. She will have a quest (the whole reason she is on the surface), Yasraena-specific weapons, and a whole bunch of banters and interjections just like other modded NPCs. Here are her stats, listed for your perusal:

STR 18/97
DEX 18
CON 12
INT 13
WIS 12
CHA 16

Since she will be picked up in Irenicus' Dungeon, she will be of an appropriate experience level for a party just starting BGII.

We really want to use the attached pic below, but, alas, we did not know she was the mighty and ever-so-popular Aribeth from Neverwinter Nights. So, we'll have to look elsewhere....
