Meet Calin and Faq
« on: February 07, 2011, 03:59:23 PM »
Let me introduce to you a new NPC called Calin for Baldur's Gate II. Calin is a Neutral Good Blade Master.
 He's 26 years old, easy going and not really looking to start adventuring again. But he is more than willing to help the protagonist, even if you don't want his help right away. As long as your not rude to him.

There are romance and friendship tracks for the protagonist.
Calin will romance female protagonists who are human, half-elven or elven as long as they are not evil or thieve's.

Will TOB be required to play the mod?
Calin will be for SOA and TOB both.

Will I have to start a new game?
Sorry, I know people hate that but, yes. The way it was written, it won't make any sense if you don't.

Why won't Calin romance my thief? That doesn't seem fair.
Calin has some deep and legitimate reasons for that but, don't lose hope! If you say the right things, and are willing to make a sacrifice of sorts, he will realize not all thieve's are so bad and a romance will happen.

Does Calin have any quests?
No. I wanted an NPC who offers to help the protagonist because he doesn't like what he sees in the Promenade and feels it's the right thing to do.

If I kick him out of the party, can I get him back?
Certainly. He won't just wait around somewhere since he lives in Atkathla, but he will tell you where and how to find him.


That's all I can think of for now :P Sorry, am new at this :)

It is amazing that after all the NPC ideas people proposed and realised you come up with something realistic and convincing that hasn't been adressed yet (as far as I know). Like this very much! I am very curious about him! :lilly

Thank you, coming  from you, that is high praise! :)  I just always wondered... why when all this commotion
is going on... the thieve's, the cowled wizards... no one notices or cares? Are you kidding me? LOL Well, Calin lives in Atkathla since he decided he was tired of traveling and is in the Promenade buying supplies. He sees and hears what is happening as is shocked and can't turn away from it and live with himself :)  So, he rushes to see if everyone is ok and offers to help, cause he's a good guy that way :P

Calin and Minsc

I've always liked Minsc and don't really like how he's always been picked on about his mental state so,  here is banter.

CHAIN
IF ~InParty("KKCalin")
Global("CalMinTalk2","LOCALS",0)
CombatCounter(0)
!AreaType(DUNGEON)
!StateCheck(Myself,CD_STATE_NOTVALID)
!StateCheck("Calin",STATE_SLEEPING)
See("Calin")
OR(3)
AreaCheck("AR0334")                                     
AreaCheck("AR0702")                                     
AreaCheck("AR2001")
~ THEN ~BMinsc~ calmintalk2
~Look, Boo! Swords! And axes, and halberds, and maces, and... oh, Boo! Surely, this is paradise!~ DO ~SetGlobal("CalMinTalk2","LOCALS",1)~
== KKCalinB ~And look at the edge on that broadsword! And Minsc, check the balance of this one!~
== BMINSC ~That is indeed a fine blade! But look you on this one! See how the guard sweeps down around the hand?~
== KKCalinB ~If you need us, <CHARNAME>, we'll just be over here a while.~
== BMINSC ~And look at this one! Six feet long, and balanced!~

Nice. I can imagine the glint of children-like joy in Minsc's eyes. ^-^

I know I'm over a year late...but Zcalin sounds intriguing.  And since you always finish what you start and soa is done, I can hardly wait for him.  I just broke out bg2 again to romance Nehtaniel again, try ou new Gavin content, and to lov Keldorn.

Me wants Calin, too!  Well, since I'm on a luvs wagon mod!   :lilly

I havent worked on this mod in quite awhile, tho I promised myself I would finish it. It's been a very, very bad year so far. I have recovered, for the most part, and will do my best to get this done soon.
