Overview

Vynd is a Drow Assassin, recruitable at the Burning Wizard inn in Beregost. Though evil in alignment, he will not complain or leave due to reputation. (Unfortunately, this feature is not currently supported in BG:EE.)

Compatibility

This mod is designed to work with Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition, Baldur's Gate Tutu with the Tales of the Sword Coast expansion pack, or with BGT-WeiDU. It should be installed on Tutu after you have run the conversion program, in your Baldur's Gate Tutu directory, or in your BG2 directory for BGT. Please note that for EasyTutu users, this directory is usually named BaldursGateTutu.

There are no known incompatibilities with any other mod.

Installation

Windows
Vynd is packaged and installed with WeiDU and is distributed as a self-extracting archive. To install, simply double-click the archive and follow the instructions on screen.

Alternatively the files can be extracted from the archive using WinRAR. If properly extracted, you should have a Vynd folder and Setup-Vynd.exe in your Tutu folder. To install, simply double-click Setup-Vynd.exe and follow the instructions on screen.

Please run setup-vynd.exe in your Tutu folder to reinstall, uninstall or otherwise change components.

Mac OS X
If the mod was previously installed, uninstall it before extracting the new version. Vynd is packaged and installed with WeiDU. To install, simply extract the contents of the mod into your Tutu folder. If properly extracted, you should have a Vynd folder, Setup-vynd, and Setup-vynd.command in your Tutu folder. To install, simply double-click Setup-vynd.command and follow the instructions on screen.

Linux
Extract the contents of the mod to the folder of the game you wish to modify. Download the latest version of WeiDU for Linux from WeiDU.org and copy WeiDU and WeInstall to /usr/bin. Following that, open a terminal, cd to your BG2 installation directory, run 'tolower' and answer Y to both queries. You can avoid running the second option (linux.ini) if you've already ran it once in the same directory. To save time, the archive is already tolowered, so there's no need to run the first option (lowercasing file names) either if you've extracted only this mod since the last time you lower cased file name. If you're unsure, running tolower and choosing both options is the safe bet.
Run WeInstall Vynd in your game folder to install the mod. Then run wine BGMain.exe and start playing.

TUTU AND BGT PLAYERS MAY RECEIVE WARNINGS ABOUT THE BLACKGUARD KIT ON INSTALLATION. THIS IS NORMAL.

Contents

This mod adds Vynd, a Neutral Evil Drow Assassin, to the game. His statistics are as follows:

He is proficient in Long Swords and Darts. Players will have to pay a small fee to recruit him.

Vynd includes a dialogue track with the player character consisting of 20 talks, banters with all Bioware NPCs (including the four Enhanced Edition newcomers), numerous interjections and extensive player-initiated dialogue.

Player-initiated Dialogue

At any time after Vynd's first friendship talk, the player character may talk to Vynd directly. However, not all dialogue options are immediately available. More will appear as his timed talks progress, or once he's bantered enough times with other characters. Check back periodically for new content!
