  1. Hey, well done ! Congratulations on the book! You must be relieved. It looks very interesting. I'll keep an eye out - I enjoy your writing very much.
  2. Hooray! Lucky old us ! Thanks and congratulations, Berelinde. Gavin's one of my favourite people - it will be very nice to see this story play to its end.
  3. I think it fits his backstory and character too well not to use it. I'll play it either way, of course, but I think it's a good idea.
  4. I also had the problem Eviane mentioned, about having two Douglases show up one after another, with the engaged path firing first. There was one point where he addressed me as 'love' but my romanceactive value was 3 (damn that interfering Anomen anyway). I can't remember which one; I'll have to find it again. The globe - I have been thinking about this, because it took me a while to work out what to do with it....Perhaps adding a note that it should go in the quickslot? I kept chatting up the priest and had him send the portal people through to us - I thought that was all you could do. (It wasn't until I was reading this thread that I realised I'd missed the huge quest!) I also haven't played BG in a while and am only just remembering all of its how-to-use-this-item quirks, so this may just be me. Other unique items in the game have the note about quickslot use at the bottom of their descriptions, however, so I thought it worth mentioning. Very, very well -written, Jatsey! I'm enjoying it greatly.
  5. Yes, the browser did hang, and I'm embarrassed to admit I don't know how to delete the post. I'll check your answer on the other message. Sorry about that, and thanks. s
  6. ....and that's all I can get out of him. What on earth have I done to the poor man? We left Ammon Jerro's haven, I chatted up AJ, before I encountered Nevalle at the door I spoke to Casavir, and he could not believe his ears. He still cannot believe his ears and we're on our way to the fire giants' mountain. Other talks will trigger, but if I just want to chat with him, his ears get in the way. The only thing I can think is I've done something Evil and he can't get over it, and the only evil thing I've done is be a little catty with Ammon Jerro about Zhaeve. But I've been very very good since then, and people have noticed and everything. Is this fixable? Thanks.

  8. Hang in there, Berelinde, we're all rooting for you. We're also a pretty patient lot. I enjoy your writing too much to try to hurry you.
  9. Belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY from me too. I hope it was as nice there as it was in Saskatoon - bright, golden, and crisp.
  10. Happy Birthday from a fan!
  11. Happy Birthday from a fan. I hope it's a satisfying day. Also that there's good food.
  12. Well, for what it's worth, I have a similar reaction to the whole push-the-main-quest thing in BG1: I always felt that from a roleplaying point of view that not pursuing the main storyline was somehow bad or selfish. The sense of urgency is certainly there - for me, anyway, though it sounds like others don't find it so. It never bothered me to the point that I didn't just rationalise it (my character is too young, inexperienced, weak, unimportant, etc), but having the options you're describing would certainly make that easier. I'm not a modder, though, and I suspect that what you're describing is actually pretty difficult. Best of luck. s
  13. I know not many people are commenting, but I wanted you to know that that doesn't mean we're not reading! I'm really enjoying this. I've got it on my topic alert so I don't miss anything. Very well done. Kulyok's right: you've got the gift.
  14. For NPCs, your best bet might be to take a look at what's available and have some idea of what kind of people you want in your party. There are some NPCs I've grown to love and think of as necessary components to my game, but that's something that takes time and experimentation, which is the fun part, really. Some mods are so well-written that they fit themselves into the story seamlessly, and I like that a lot. It depends on your tastes. I like Hublepot but don't include him very often. I almost always have Xan and Kivan, and I like Angelo and Keto and Tashia. I also almost never play a mage or sorceress, so NPCs with good magic skills are good for me to take along. I also only ever play a good-aligned character, and that makes a difference. If you like playing romances, then gender issues come into play. I usually play a female character, so that colours my choices. (Kivan and Xan and Angelo are all good, and Edwin is hysterical.) BG1 - I always have Gavin along, and Finch is fun too. The BG1 NPC Project mod is a must. Experiment. It's supposed to be fun. If I don't like an NPC, I sometimes give them a shot through to the end of the game but often ditch them for someone else. Good luck!
  15. I'd add another modder: I include anything by Domi in my installs. Excellent writer.
