G3: Grey the Dog Updates to v2!

Recommended Posts

Gibberlings Three


Grey the Dog NPC


Original idea for a dog companion, first kit draft with special abilities, first portrait: Rabain
Everything else: jastey


Grey is a full-fledged joinable NPC, but still a real dog. The only magic on him is his magically enchanted items.
He has sensible interjections (Woof!), NPC banters (mostly NPC dialogues about him with the PC), a click dialogue (PID) if the PC feels like playing fetch or just needs someone to talk to. There are dialogue options that reflect the game story and I'll promise: Grey will always listen to your PC's woes. Grey initiates no dialogues so there is no friendship track and - I am really sorry, but no romance. Not even for Shapeshifters.
In BG1 there are two small quests, both available in BG city. The quests are also available and solvable without Grey in party.
Where appropriate, Grey can be told to "search" for missing persons, in BG1 Brage and farmer Brun's son, in SoD the five missing refugees. This is realized so it doesn't spoil the quests too much, though, so do not expect too much help.

Grey can follow the group as a "7th party member". There are some quirks with this mode and also levelling up needs to be done by letting him join from time to time (please refer to readme), but it works great if you need the slot for another NPC without having to send Grey back home.

Please note: So far, the mod officially contains BG1 content only. Grey should already be fully functional in SoD, but BGII content is not finished yet.

v2 comes with some bug fixes.



-fixed install of other mods caused by this mod's item because of "read out of bounds" (offset ca (dice size/minimum level) at opcode #12 to "0", was at "-1" for some of Grey's tooth enforcer)
-changed item category from "potion" to "food" for Grey's chew toys
-unified Grey only items to exclude all normal NPC races, only (no classes are excluded. Verr'Sha should not be able to use War Dog's studded leather armor.)
-changed Grey to "Other" (sex/gender in cre file) so he will not be picked for SharTeel's fight if he is the strongest "male" in the group.
-added c#greythedog.ini with mod info
-added folder libiconv-1.9.2-1-src.7z with iconv licence info
