Imoen 4 Ever Compatibility Notes

So, how having this one reply option about going after Imoen disabled by Imoen4Ever will "close off" the romance path is not really clear to me: it will take one possibility to increase the counting variable. Which still leaves 63 to reach the needed 6...

Glad to hear! That still leaves Shadows over Soubar.  Have you given any thought to my suggestion in the other thread of simply changing "rescue" to "help", and indicating in the Promenade that Irenicus stole something from Imoen's soul?

I love your work on this mod. It really feels like you're restoring what the BG2 story should have always been -- SoD too. In my game, I made Imoen a multiclass F/W. She was as skilled a mage as Dynaheir and yet still needed exclusive "training" from Lia 🙄 I know I4E doesn't necessarily change that, but it does make it a little less heavy handed if Imoen still gets to adventure with us :)

@Lightbringer Please note that Fading Promises is not yet compatible content wise, as the reply option is still in with I4E installed. I will (in case I4E is installed) replace it with a reply option that has the same connotation and is similar to what you suggested. But I don't see Irenicus having taken something of Imoen exactly. I4E's story is more that he stated explicietly that he will come for the PC and Imoen. The reply option I have in mind will be along the lines of the PC going after Irenicus because he is threatening not only them but their friend Imoen and killed and tortured others. I hope this will replace the missing "rescuing my friend" option also in terms of motivation to help a friend(s) in need.

Just to point this out: I don't think replacing this reply option is needed in terms of making the romance/friendship path available, as Roxanne so frivolously stated. As I wrote above, I am pretty sure 6 out of 63 is just as valid as 6 out of 64. But I do think that just taking this reply option will leave a hole for players who feel this as their PC's most important reason to go after Irenicus (or just want to kiss up to him, lol). This is one reason why I didn't make Fading for Promises compatible just yet, but I will do so in the not too distant future.

Sounds great, Jastey. I wasn't worried about Fading Promises anymore, since -- as you noted -- it was only one path of many to reach the end of that mod. I was mainly thinking of Shadows over Soubar. It's good to see that you've got an idea in mind that keeps the concept of the altruistic hero :)

Makes sense to me!
