Not sure if this fits into what you were thinking of but the Yoshi mod seems to be dead.

How about bringing Yoshi back into ToB!

Quote
Did I ever mention that we were THIS close to bringing Yoshimo back to life (sort of) in ToB? Actually, he would have been undead, kinda...but Ilmater would have restored him to semi-life to repay his debt of guilt for betraying the PC (if that had happened...and, of course, if Yoshimo's heart had been surrendered to Ilmater). People would have gotten their full thief back (with some cool new abilities), and he would strike a tragic pose as someone who was waiting to die again...but wanted to die in peace.

I thought it was a cool story, anyway. But we just ended up deciding that our time was better spent elsewhere.

So sound like something you could do?

I was really, really tempted to do something similar to this when I was on the IEP Team, but decided it cheapened Yoshimo's death a bit too much. Still, it'd be interesting to see.  :)

Hell, I didn't want him to die in the first place.  I would happily have killed Aerie, though.

The only problem with bringing Yoshi back is that there would be no voicing for banters/interjections - only the standard voiceset (a voiceset I consider to be one of the best in the game).

If Bioware's time was better spent elsewhere, why didn't they flesh out Valygar or Cernd?

Sorry if that sounds a little rough, it's been a bad night and I'm absolutely exhausted.

Bringing back Yoshimo would destroy an important part of what little story Bioware had left to give.

We've discussed this in the private forum, and indeed, we came to the conclusion to leave sleeping Yoshimo's lie. :(

Sorry to all you Yoshimo fans, but this mod isn't 'Unfinished Business', but 'The NCP Interaction *Expansion* Pack'. We won't be adding in new NPCs, but improving and expanding the current ones.

Of course, we'd be happy to expand SoA Yoshimo, but no, we won't be altering his quest; there are mods that do this already. If you don't like those mods, I suggest you make your own, lol.

Sorry to be blunt, and big hugs to those Yoshimo fans who wanted him back, but no. :(

Eh, that isn't that bad.  The Kivan mod has the same problem, but it's still an awesome mod despite the lack of voicing.  Of course, I probably wouldn't feel that way if the writing wasn't so good.

As long as I get more Yoshi in SOA, I'm happy.

He was one of my favorite characters, despite the later developments.

There just aren't enough cheerful folks.

He's ALWAYS in my group, and not just for plot reasons.  :-)

There is definitely going to be a fair bit of Yoshi dialogue, interjections and some other little goodies coming. He is part of the list of soon to be covered npcs.
They'll say 'Here lies Druss the Legend, who was never mean, petty, nor needlessly cruel. Here was a man who never gave in, never compromised his ideals, never betrayed a friend, never despoiled a woman and never used his strength against the weak.' They'll say 'He had no sons, but many a woman asleep with her babes slept more soundly for knowing Druss stood with the Drenai.' They'll say many things, whitebeard. Through many generations they will say them, and men with no strength will find strength when they hear them."

"That would be pleasant," said the old man, smiling.
