The quest & storyline altering mod list
« on: April 16, 2005, 02:12:29 AM »
A while ago, I began to noticed that various mod authors are planning to introduce similar (and sometimes virtually identical) quest and storyline related additions/alterations to the game, and that this is usually because said mod author simply isn't aware that he isn't the only person who's ever come up with the idea :).

In an attempt to help soothe this situation, I had the idea of compiling a list of every storyline or quest related thing done by mods which could potentially interefere or overlap with another.  Ideally I'd like this to be an utterly definitive list, but I realize that for various reasons, some modders are hesistant to willingly give out spoilers.

So for those modders who are okay with spoilers (and BTW any players who don't like spoilers obviously shouldn't view the list) and like the idea of such a list, please let me know what you can.  Either post here, PM me, or mail me (nick@frad.org).  Also, if I've already listed spoilers for your mod that you don't want on there, let me know and I'll remove them ASAP.

Criteria for inclusion:
- Expansion or alteration of an existing quest/story (e.g. betraying Renal)
- New quest/storyline which provides an alternative to an existing quest/story (e.g. a new route to Brynnlaw)
- New quest/story which involves existing BG2 characters (e.g. the kidnapping of Aran Linvail's daughter)
- New quest/story which involves characters from pnp (e.g the Council of Six)
- Anything else quest/story related that seems likely to be repeated by another mod

You can find the current list here. As I said above, if you don't like spoilers, do *not* visit this page! You have been warned.

I have always liked this project/idea. Methinks this post deserves a "sticky".

I wonder if I could submit something for BTL here. And maybe Ust Natha Accelerator or something.

I think that that would qualify, yes.  I am not sure how often NiGHTMARE checks this thread, but you might be able to catch him on some of the other forums.  Maybe Spellhold Studios?  I am not sure.  Anyway, I think that would be a good idea.
