Let me introduce to you a new NPC called Calin for Baldur's Gate II. 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 thieve's.
Will TOB be required to play the mod?
This mod is designed to work with Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn with or without the Throne of Bhaal expansion pack and with the Enhanced Edition of Baldur's Gate II. The mod should be compatible with other WeiDU mods.
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. Unless you already have a save before leaving Chateau Irenicus. Calin shows up right after the cut scene.
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 thieves 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.
