Calin NPC Mod

Recommended Posts

Hello all,  I started this mod 15 years ago and for one reason or another, it kept getting put off.  I decided to update what I had finished about 8 years ago to EE and finish the mod. It isn't finished yet, at the moment it is SOA only but you can summon him in TOB from the fate spirit.   I always thought it was odd that all that commotion takes place in the Promenade and no notices or cares and an idea was born.  So, let's meet Calin... again

Calin is a Neutral Good Blade Master.
 He's 26 years old, easy going and not really looking to start adventuring again. But he is more than willing to help the protagonist, even if you don't want his help right away. As long as your not rude to him.

There are romance and friendship tracks for the protagonist.
Calin will romance female protagonists who are human, half-elven or elven as long as they are not evil or theives
Will TOB be required to play the mod?
Calin will be for SOA and TOB both.

Will I have to start a new game?
Sorry, I know people hate that but, yes. The way it was written, it won't make any sense if you don't.

Why won't Calin romance my thief? That doesn't seem fair.
Calin has some deep and legitimate reasons for that but, don't lose hope! If you say the right things, and are willing to make a sacrifice of sorts, he will realize not all theives are so bad and a romance will happen.

Does Calin have any quests?
No. I wanted an NPC who offers to help the protagonist because he doesn't like what he sees in the Promenade and feels it's the right thing to do.

If I kick him out of the party, can I get him back?
Certainly. He won't just wait around somewhere since he lives in Atkathla, but he will tell you where and how to find him.

He has a friendship track,  romance track, 2-3 banters per party member except the new EE ones.  I have not played EE yet.

RE reactions and more.

I dig it. Well done! I'll most likely give this a whirl on my next playthrough.

Thanks! Didn't want to until it was done but why not right?

I'd suggest you update the link in the first post, as well. Saves time scrolling and searching for the most recent versions as well as mixups with people using the older versions.

I will do that! Thank you. As soon as I fix a few dialogues, I'll update the version and put it there.

I'll give him a go and can make some notes. :) Right after someone reminds me how to install things off dropbox. Sigh.

It's installed the same way, it's a zip when you download it.

It's ok, just extract it, in your game folder. Do you not use winrar?
