Goody. Get her done, we need more evil npcs.
Per me si va nella citta dolente.
Per me si va nell eterno dolore.
Per me si va tra la perduta gente...
Lasciate ogni speranza perduta che'entrate!

Yes you do, I don't typically like evil NPCs, but this one and Miriam makes me want to try playing evil.

Wait... other non-mod related things?

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

If you retire from modding I will be sad.

Since I live with a writer, I'll stop complaining.

I might not be able to write anymore, but I know how hard it is on sistersinister when she does not have time to write.

I think it would be more merciful to break her arm or something...

I look forward to the mod, and your literary work as well.

Procrastinating is bad. I do too much of it. Our existence in this current life is not eternal. Constantly putting something off because there's always tomorrow is foolhardy. Callisto aka The Undying, aka Deadly Obsessions has been around since 2001. Six years going on seven has gone by. Time to make things happen instead of putting it off.

It feels weird to know that time affects us who appreciate the mods and plays them.  :D
But it does.

Indeed.

I looked at some of my old files and found one of the oldest dating back to 2002 for this mod. The other old data that I have for this mod is no longer accessible since that hard drive is toast.

Another motivating factor, broken hard drives means lost data and time. I've lost too many mod files because of this combined with procrastination.

After five years (read procrastinating.), my first NPC mod idea is almost a reality. Seems like yesterday (2002) I asked MaxTeamBG on how I could trigger a certain event once the party made it to area X.

Yes, how time flies.

Congrats on release!
Question about Callisto and Fellow NPCs topic: what's her opinion about Valygar and Edwin?
Will she get along with lawful-good Anomen? With chaotic-neutral one (if he fail knight test)?

She's antagonistic towards them except Edwin. She is only nice to Edwin because he's a mage that knows to cast fire based spells. She has a thing for fire.

Ok
Any suggestions about party composition in order to see most funny and cruel content? :D

Aerie for one, She gets tormented by Calli. Jan, he torments Calli with his annoyances.

There's a nice little multi-banter between her, Aerie and Haer. There's also a good one with her, Korgan and Minsc in a game of kick the hamster.

Her sound is odd.
Looks like it composed of different voices, with different recording quality and volume. Sometimes there is music in background, sometimes not.
Personaly i don't like such inconsistence, this voicing does not fit BG style.
