Every Mod and Dog (EMaD) is a WeiDU-based mod that adds a selection of small diversions and sidequests to Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn. Its major aim is to recapture some of the more buoyant and adventurous spirit that was found in the original Baldur's Gate.
None of the components included in this mod will interfere directly with the original game's main plot and all quests are optional. Some of the quests were inspired by the various "Iron Modder" competition themes at the Pocket Plane Group.
This mod is in a continual state of development, so check back for updates every so often! The following components are included in the current version of this mod:
To uninstall, double-click the setup-emad.exe
file and enter the given commands for Uninstallation.
o and the contents of the "emad" subfolder
EMaD should be compatible with all other WeiDU mods, although conflicts are always a possibility. If you discover a conflict, please report it at the EMaD support forum (http://s4.invisionfree.com/namc).
If you find a bug, please visit the EMaD support forum (http://s4.invisionfree.com/namc) and post the details of your bug there. Complaints and comments may be directed to the forum as well.
o Finding the extra characters/quests.
I'd highly recommend just playing through the game and bumping into the characters as you go. Most of them are designed so that they'll walk up to you when they see you, or have such improbable colour schemes that you can't help but notice them. However...
o Random hints/help.
§ A Bhaalspawn's Best Friend: After the wolf has shown his true nature (the latest he will do this is when you reach Brynnlaw), he will leave unless you are a ranger or your charisma is > 16. There is no other way to keep him.
EMaD and the ideas within are the evil brainchildren of cliffette. Don't say the mod is yours (also, why would you want to?) and we'll all be happy.

Thanks go to the team at the PPG, who taught me everything I know about modding. And thanks go to Icelus, because I pinched his UB template for this readme :). Extra thanks go to jcompton, for his Iron Modding contests and enormous contribution to the modding community (mainly in the form of relentless pinging of IE tool authors, no matter what he says).
