Notes

BG2 is rated T for Teen.

The Sarah NPC Romance Mod contains a female/female romance which is considered to be rated T for Teen material. Please do not play this mod if this type of content offends you.

Please Note: The original SoA version of Sarah, v1.3, is replaced by this download.

Please uninstall SarahSoA and any prior versions of Sarah before installing this mod. It includes all of that content, and more!

Overview

It has always been a belief of mine that there are not enough rangers in Baldur's Gate II, nor are there enough opportunities to interact with them. This mod will add Sarah, a young but independent ranger to Baldur's Gate II.

Compatibility

This mod is designed to work with Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn with or without the Throne of Bhaal expansion pack. There are currently no known incompatibilities.

Installation

Windows
The Sarah NPC mod 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 SarahToB folder and Setup-SarahTob.exe in your BG2 folder. To install, simply double-click Setup-SarahToB.exe and follow the instructions on screen.

Please run Setup-SarahToB.exe in your BG2 folder to reinstall, uninstall or otherwise change components.

Mac OS X
If the mod was previously installed, uninstall it before extracting the new version.The Sarah NPC mod is packaged and installed with WeiDU. To install, simply extract the contents of the mod into your BG2 folder. If properly extracted, you should have a SarahToB folder, Setup-SarahToB, and Setup-SarahToB.command in your BG2 folder. To install, simply double-click Setup-SarahToB.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 sarahtob in your game folder to install the mod. Then run wine BGMain.exe and start playing.

Contents

Sarah is a young but independent woman who was born in the slums of Baldur's Gate. She was raised by her father until he met an untimely death at the hands of a mugger when she was thirteen. Sent to live with her uncle, a ranger, in the Cloakwood Forest, Sarah learned the ways of nature as well as the art of combat. Years later, she left the Cloakwood to explore on her own. She settled in an empty cabin not too far from Umar Hills, and has helped guide lost merchants and other travelers ever since. Sarah is a relatively shy but determined person who admits to loving nature more than people, but then again, perhaps she just hasn't found the right person yet. You can find Sarah in the northeastern section of the Umar Hills region (AR1100).

This mod will include:

Biography

When asked about her past, SARAH tells you that she hails from the slums of Baldur's Gate, where she raised by her father until he met an untimely death at the hands of a mugger when Sarah was thirteen. She was taken in by her father's brother, a ranger of the Cloakwood Forest, who taught her all he knew of nature and combat. She admits to preferring the company of trees over people, but that she has never hesitated to help anyone in need. While she claims she is unremarkable and ordinary, you wonder if there is more to her than meets the eye.
