NPC Romance MOD Opinions

Recommended Posts

Updated Darian.

 

I also changed his rating in "Sexual" to Mild, because it seems that it's significantly less than Viconia's. But I haven't played it, so tell me what you think.

Yoshimo & Kachiko--Teen
That's too strict. If vanilla romances are considered teen, then this is for any age. Two characters simply develop feelings for each over and eventually declare love in the good old classic fashion.

 

I revamped the rating system to help handle this kind of problem. It still has a final rating of Teen, but I gave it an E for Everyone in the arbitrary rating. Tell me what you think.

He's not dead yet!! (Just not back on working on him until June). I'd love to be able to help out with a modder-given rating for you for Aran Whitehand, but unless you count Faerunian swearing, it is tough to do so within your rating system. A talk or two deal with the FR equivalent of PTSD, but many teen rating things have more violence. He is a self proclaimed "adult" mod, because it is certainly possible for a female PC to get things that are as graphic as Romantic Encounters (and a bit farther). But it is absolutely possible to have multiple playthroughs in multiple styles with nothing besides oaths that might break a PG-13 setting. You can get him drunk a few times and have additional dialog, and wine/women/song are his stock in trade. On the male PC side, I don't think anything qualifies as mature other than some of the discussion subjects - he is appropriately racist about Drow and Tieflings to fit canonical the FR setting, but he doesn't make a big deal about it unless directly asked.

 

So, not sure how to rate him, as it all comes back to what gender PC is, and dialog choice.

The Sarevok romance doesn't have anything higher than a T rating as far as sexual content goes. There are a lot of implied actions and vague descriptions, but nothing explicit like the RE I wrote for the same character. Psychologically, the mod can definitely steer into mature territory.

 

Haer'Dalis' info is correct (strong M rated sexual content, but only if the player looks around for it), and once the ToB portion is out, the psychological aspects and graphic violence will earn a strong M as well. And there's a bit of planar cant swearing. :)

Updated Aran Whitehand, Sarevok, and Haer'Dalis. Please review and make sure it's accurate.

 

Thanks Aeryn and cmorgan for your feedback.

first off, i think this idea is great. i'm just a forum-skimmer myself, don't usually post anything or join any modding communities. but i signed up just to post here.

i've played infinity games for awhile, but never got around to playing any mods until lately. i downloaded easytutu and npc project, and i don't know why i never did before. those mods are pure awesomeness.

 

i just finished playing branwen romance here's my review.

vio: moderate. branwen likes to smash things and people, and talks about breaking ribs and fingers. she's quite a warrior.

psy: mild or n/a. she questions her faith and has some doubts. is this even worth mentioning?

dr/al: mild. she drinks to victory sometimes, but no more banters if you get her drunk. i tried.

sex: strong. it's not actually strong, per se, but bc you're using viconia as a common ground, it is significantly more, i think. there are parts that are equal to viconia, and parts that are more. there's described hugging and kissing and cuddling, and like the viconia rom, theres implied and suggested sex and scenes, but nothing bad, just talking about sharing a bedroll and nothing after that. there's flirting and lovey-dovey conversations. but one thing that made it more than viconia's moderate is, in the flirts it talks about her breasts and cleavage and describes them in small detail. they're not naked, or something, and its not detailed or graphic. but "large breasts" or "pressed up against you" is definitely more descriptive than viconia's suggestiveness and hints. thats only in the flirts, though, so if you don't flirt, you won't have this. but that's the only reason its strong instead of moderate. i don't think you can install it without the flirts.

lang: i don't pay attention to this much, but i don't remember any dirty language, so i won't say n/a.

 

the romance was great. i didn't get the very last lovetalks yet, cause im not back at candlekeep yet, but it wont be any more than what i said already. if you played it, you know why.

 

as i play more mods, ill post them here if they arent already reviewed. this is a great idea, and it should have been done a long time ago.

Updated Branwen. Gave it a final rating of mature and rated it Teen in the arbitrary rating according to the readme.

 

Thanks for the review, Brenner.

So I decided to download some of the more popular female mods, as determined by looking through forums. I used Crimson, a text editor, to skim through the .tra and .d files. I know that using a text editor does not amount to the same thing as actually playing the mods, and it won't give me all the content, but it still gives a good idea as to that content which is relevant to this thread.

 

Fade

 

Finale Rating: Adult

Arbitrary Rate: Adult

Sexuality: Intense

Violence: Strong

Drugs/Alcohol: Strong

Psychological: Strong

Profanity: Moderate

Facts: There is talk about fade being a sex slave, with non-graphic descriptions and references to her "duties". There is a description of her attacking a corpse in rage. A few Lovetalks discuss her demonic family, which includes siblings killing each other and the apathy of their parents. There are descriptions of Fade and a friend being in severe pain after being tortured, some of which are graphic. Whereas Viconia says she committed violent acts and what those acts were, the Fade mod describes violent acts being committed in greater detail, describing blood, sores, and wounds. There is a scene where she gets drunk, and the following morning has a bad hangover and vomits. Throughout the romance there are innuendos that are descriptive, significantly more so than the Viconia Romance, and scenes of detailed groping and rolling around, including detailed descriptions of passionate kissing, caressing, and being naked. The flirts include a graphic response that is reminiscent of foreplay, and asking Fade to "make love". There is swearing and cussing on par with the vanilla game.

Comments: Fade is a half-succubus who tends to tackle/pounce on the PC a lot, reminding me of a cat. There was a scene in the Underdark that I found somewhat disturbing where the PC can try to goad Fade into embracing her more demonic side. She then whips out a knife and "almost" does something (??) to the PC, leaving the rest to your imagination. The flirts include a rather childish conversation that confuses chicken pieces with favorite female body parts. Now that I think of it, most of the innuendos in this mod were childish and reminded me of high school . Although I did not find any single sex-scene pornographic or extremely detailed, I rated this mod Intense in Sexuality because of the high frequency of sexual references and descriptions.

Amber

 

Final Rating: Mature

Arbitrary Rating:

Sexuality: Strong

Violence: Moderate

Drugs/Alcohol:Mild

Psychological: Mild

Profanity: Mild

Facts: There is one scene in the Lovetalks where there is some passionate kissing, groping, and falling onto a bed, after which the scene ends implying that you had sex. The flirts include a some mildly described intimate situations and groping. There is also the ability to "Look down Amber's bodice", with accompanying descriptions of her breasts, and a few flirts briefly describe the PC touching Amber's breasts. Violence is on par with the Vanilla game, as in there are no detailed descriptions of blood or wounds. She has had some people shun her because of her tiefling heritage, much like Viconia. There is little to no cussing, and same with drinking and drugs.

Comments: There are innuendos that are on par with the original game.

de'Arnise Romance

 

Final Rating: Mature

Arbitrary Rating: Teen

Sexuality: Strong

Violence:Mild

Drugs/Alcohol:N/A

Psychological:Mild

Profanity: N/A

Facts: You can take up the role of "peeping tom" as you read descriptions of you watching Nalia undress without her knowledge. In this scene, there is a description of her breasts. In the flirts you can also bathe with Nalia, which include descriptions of passion while you are both naked in the water. Aside from this, there are one or two innuendos on par with Bioware. I did not find any items of violence, drugs/alcohol, profanity, or psychological content that was beyond the vanilla game.

Comments: Without the flirts or the peeping tom scene, this mod would have rating of Moderate in Sexuality.

Tashia

 

Final Rating: Mature

Arbitrary Rating: Teen

Sexuality: Strong

Violence: Mild

Drugs/Alcohol: N/A

Psychological: Mild

Profanity:

Facts: In the flirts, there is some mildly descriptive touching/groping. There is one vague reference to fellatio. Tashia struggles with overcoming an ex-boyfriend. There are no drugs or alcohol, and the violence is less descriptive than the Viconia Romance, if there's any at all. I could not find any profanity, but did not rate it for such.

Comments: There is an option to install "Baldurized" content as opposed to the original content which contains all the descriptions of what's happening in "()". If you install the "Baldurized" content, there are no descriptions in "()", which would eliminate the sexual content mentioned above and give the rating in Sexuality a Moderate instead of a Strong, thus bringing the rating down to Teen.

Tyris Flare

 

Final Rating: Adult

Arbitrary Rating:

Sexuality: Intense

Violence: Strong

Drugs/Alcohol: Moderate

Psychological: Strong

Profanity: Moderate

Facts: Graphic descriptions of passionate kissing. Several vague references to the PC arousal, and one detailed description of the PC's arousal during sexual activity. Descriptions of touching breasts and male genitalia, and "almost touching" female genitalia, as well as moaning and groaning. The flirts include the ability to bathe with Tyris, which describes Tyris and the PC getting undressed and being naked in private and in public, with accompanying descriptions of touching, kissing, and other sexual activity that implies the remaining not-described content after fading to rest scenes. There are many strong innuendos throughout the Lovetalks and flirts, including references to foreplay and genitalia. There is one scene where Tyris bites the PC's mouth and draws blood, a few scenes where Tyris hits the PC, and references to "pleasure & pain", indicating a sort of S&M relationship. I gave it a Strong in Violence and Psychological because of the S&M references. She also likes to drink and makes references to alcohol, usually accompanied by references to making love. There is cussing such as b**** and ba*****.

Comments: Tyris is a horny amazon. She is into sex and has no qualms making it known.

Warning: this mod contains references to foreplay and genitalia :p

 

On a serious note, I never intended there to be any tones of an S&M relationship beyond the playful biting of the lip. I can't say I remember writing her hitting the player (beyond after some particularly cruel break-up options).
