Some opinions on the mod

Recommended Posts

I downloaded the mod, and I have to say I really liked it. Don't know if the points I'm about to say have already been mentioned, but I thought I'd give my opinion on it.

 

First of all, I think it's large enough to have a separate forum, not sure if you want to have one, though, Idobek.

Second, the idea of being able to add a Wizard School to Imoen and Nalia sounds nice, but if you don't want to install one, it's a bit tiring having to go through all the questions. Is there a way of making this part an option? I don't really find it nice having to go through 14 questions with replying no to all.

Third, perhaps it would be a nice idea to make a fighter kit for the time before Anomen becomes a Knight, which would be replaced by Berserker if he fails, and if he doesn't he can keep it.

 

It's a very nice mod both in concept and in practise, and I very much enjoyed it.

When I get my arse into gear and release a proper non-beta version then I'll probably get the mod its own forum.

Not really a neat way to do this, sorry. I find it annoying too.

This kind of defeats the purpose of giving him a Berserker kit. The Berserker option is only really there to balance out the Priest of Helm option. I can't really justify stripping Anomen of a fighter kit if he passes his test either.

A minor nit-pick on this subject - under the 2nd ed. AD&D rules, most of the specialist wizards had minimum required ability scores (either Dexterity, Constitution, Wisdom, or Charisma of 15 or 16 - see PHB).

 

Imoen has the required stats to be a Conjurer, Enhanter, Illusionist, Invoker or Transmuter, while Nalia has the same list with the exception that she cannot be an Enchanter.

 

Alternatively, I cannot find anything in the rules that would prevent either of them from becoming a wild mage, if they so wished :(

 

This would, at least, shrink the number of options to select (but not by much).

I decided against requiring minimum stats for Imoen's and Nalia's mage kits. Those in the know can self-regulate. Incidentally, on a minimum stat basis Edwin doesn't qualify as a Red Wizard either. Other NPCs have stats that jar with their kit and/or classes too.

Alternatively, I cannot find anything in the rules that would prevent either of them from becoming a wild mage, if they so wished :(

I am still trying to get this to work. Unfortunately the Wild Mage kit isn't taking correctly.

Sorry I sound like a 12-year-old-girlie but WOW this is a great mod! It gives NPCs more character and makes them more "logically" constructed. The only thing I dislike is Battlerager raging only for 1 turn, I find it illogical, he (esp. a dwarf!) would not get winded after so short a time, I'd suggest making this 2 turns at least but less times a day or without winding. Anyhow Great job!
