    Sure. My only concern is that there should be some note that it's Skie from Cost of One Girl's Soul, not my old Skie for BG2 which is a bit... crappy. Really, I am considering taking the old one down or something.

    I mean it's been years since the G3 CBP was updated and we both wrote many new NPCs (I release like...5 NPCs since then? And there are some NPCs from Artemius and they all talk to one another) since the last update and... well, adding that would be a lot of work. I don't want to rush it. Let's see if Artemius likes the idea at all.

    The checks would need to work both way, we once talked about it somewhere here long time ago, but also simply using the same global variables is good enough, because the global is set to a different value after one talk anyway so it won't happen twice. Anyway, I think we can wait and I would like Artemius to decide if he's fine with that and want to go that way. For the last few years we've been mostly writing those talks together, between our characters

    I was actually asking @cmorgan about that. There are many mods that got released and have crossmod banters included in their structure, but perhaps it would be great to add them here as well, keeping the same variables to make sure it won't fire twice. That would help many players so they do not have to wonder in what order NPC mods should be installed so all crossmod talks were installed. @Artemius I I'm also thinking about our stuff here It would be so great to see G3 Crossmod Banter Pack getting new versions and new talks...
  5. The new version of Ooze's Lounge from Athkatlan Grounds series is now available. Version 2 includes a WeiDU update, a Polish translation (by memory), seperated character sounds from other sound files to provide language variations and an important readme update. The mod introduces a brand new part of Athkatlan sewers. You may now use the originally inactive grate in Slums to enter a locked part of the sewers and discover its dark corners. The mod offers three new areas as well as a couple of mini-quests, new items and graphics. Gather your party and visit the Ooze's Lounge, a special place with spacial wares, locked from most commoners, yet opened for adventurers like yourself, Bhaalspawn. Download Forum
  6. One of the Colours of Infinity mods - Foundling: Between the Shades - has just been updated to v4.2. The new version includes a fix for the problem with the multi-class option when installed on EET and an important readme update. Foundling is the thrall of Thaxll'ssillvia, the Shadow Dragon found in the Temple Ruins. He is cold, calculating, and determined to be freed from his influence. He can never oppose his master on his own, but everything can change thanks to the influence of the Bhaalspawn. Even though it focuses on the new companion, the mod is also partially a quest mod, which adds a new adventure, new areas and items - everything served in the (peculiar) spirit of other CoI mods.

  7. Today we welcome a new modder many of you may already know: Artemius_I - the author of companion mods, various tweaks, kits and many more. Many of those, who use Enhanced Edition games probably heard his name before. From now on you'll find his mods hosted here, at Spellhold Studios. Joinable Companion Mods: Sirene NPC for BGEE, SoD, BG2EE (forum│download) A lawful good female tiefling paladin of Ilmater. Banters, friendship, romance for both genders and a custom-designed kit. Sirene exhibits many of the typical qualities expected of a paladin; she is kind, dutiful and faithful. However, beneath her calm exterior lies a hidden temper owing to the fell blood which flows in her veins. Drake NPC for BGEE, SoD (forum│download) A neutral good male human priest of Tyr with an irreverent and sarcastic attitude who serves the Order of the Radiant Heart, sent to investigate the iron crisis in the north. Banters, friendship and original voicing. BG2EE portion of the mod is under development. Pai'Na NPC for BG2EE (forum│download) A true neutral female half-drow hivemaster. An expansion of the original BG2 minor character with banters and friendship. Personality-wise, she can be moody, unsociable and temperamental, but she isnt that bad of a person if you get on her good side. Aura NPC for BGEE, SoD (forum│download) A lawful good gnome artificer thief. Banters, friendship, quest, new items and hints towards a romance with a female PC. Aura is kind and idealistic at heart. She can be rather shy and socially inept when interacting with strangers, but easily turns peppy and excitable when the topic strays into her fields of expertise. BG2EE portion of the mod is under development. Most companions written by Artemius include crossmod banters between each other as well as with other companion mods like Fade (BG2), Verr'Sza (BGEE), Will (BG2EE), White (BG). Sirene also reacts to some quest mods, G3 Romantic Encounters and some more. You may expect even more crossmod content in the future. Tweaks, Rule Changes and Additions: Shadow Magic for BGEE, SoD, BG2EE (forum│download) Adds a new school of magic to the game. Play as a Shadow Adept with a selection of 100+ exclusive Shadow Weave spells, some with similarities with Weave magic while others are completely original. Shadow Magic is more powerful than regular magic but also dangerous as it drains the user's life force. Includes new kits with exclusive spells, items and familiars. Artemius' Tweaks (forum│download) Assorted personalized tweaks that might interest many players. You'll find here components like: Expanded Racial Enemies, Expanded Shapeshifting, Expanded Racial Bonuses, Cloak of Dragomir only decreases stats in daylight, new kits and many more. We're also happy to welcome some new kit mods written by Artemius: The Artisan's Kitpack (thread│download) This mod adds a collection of custom-made kits and reworks of existing kits for various classes. Bardic Wonders (thread│download) This mod adds new bard kits with specialized bard songs to the game, as well as a new merchant to Baldur's Gate II who carries new bardic items. Warlock Mod (thread│download) This mod adds a version of the Warlock as a kit/pseudo-unique class. As you can see, many new mods joined SHS today. We encourage you to check them out! Enjoy! P.S. Spellhold has opened a new subforum dedicated for kit mods. It's a communal subforum where kit mods of various authors could be hosted, so any kits of a good quality are welcome.
  8. Korgan Friendship v1.1 is now available. What's new in the version: renamed mod's directory and setup files from "Korgan" to "Korgan Friendship" to solve compatibility problem with Korgan's Redemption mini-mod. About the mod: Korgan Friendship is a part of NPC IEP mod - one of the flag projects of Spellhold Studios. It adds friendship talks with Korgan, the bloodthirsty dwarven fighter from Baldur's Gate 2.

  9. Almateria's Restoration Project has been well known and gathered popularity for years now. It started as a restoration of unused sounds, but then it become much more than that. Today it includes many components that bring back items, characters, encounters, dialogues and many many other things! It is a great option for those who are fishing for unfinished business-kind of content as well those who enjoy seeing new bits here and there. Note that the mod affects both Shadows of Amn and Throne of Bhaal content. It should also work fine on BG2EE. ARP has just been updated, and we are happy to use this opportunity to give a recognition long due: to welcome that mod among all the other SHS projects, and welcome the author, Almateria, among SHS modders.

  10. Wilson Chronicles is now officially a Spellhold Studios mod. The mod includes party dialogues and some encounters to make sure those groups who will decide to travel with the BG2EE hidden bear companion won't suffer from a lack of interesting events. The added dialogue maintains the style of the original game: bears have their own language, after all, and we should all respect that. So if you want Wilson to turn into a full NPC, install the expansion and enjoy the beary adventures! Forum Download
  11. Wait, is that a Dwarven Sunday? Perhaps it is! Just after the release of Korgan Friendship comes the next important release - Yeslick BG2(EE) update is now here. The original mod by great modders of SHS - Pixel Kaiser and K'aeloree - is now updated with ToB content but not just that. From now on the mod should also work just fine on new versions of the game - BG2EE and EET. Other changes: minor fixes, traification, banters with EE NPCs, Wilson dialogue fix and some additional proofreading. About the character: When asked about his past, Yeslick chuckles grimly. "There ain't nothin' there ye be wantin' to know, young 'un. Trust me." From what you have gleaned, Yeslick is peculiar for a dwarf; a follower of Vergadain, the Dwarven god of wealth and luck and Clangeddin, Dwarven god of war, he is an unassuming companion with an aversion to alcohol and the undead. You know little about his history beyond that he grew up in the Dales to the north and that heat makes him extremely irritable. Version 2.0 team: Lava Del'Vortel, Rhaella and Artemius_I. Forum Download If you missed the first dwarven mod released on the "Dwarven Sunday" - Korgan Friendship - check the announcement here.
  12. We are happy to announce that Korgan Friendship (NPC IEP) is now available. Even though Korgan may not be the cuddle type, he surely knows how to swing his thing. Axe, that is. All who ever joined that mad dwarf know that already. Now he will also talk to you a bit more. If you buy him a drink, obviously. The mod offers both SoA and ToB talks, but to get most of them, you will need to have more than just drink with that mad berserker! Mod authors and supporters: Lava Del'Vortel (writer and coder), fluke13 (editor, additional writing), Rhaella (consultation) and Kaeloree (consultation). The mod should work on both BG2 and BG2EE.

  13. We are happy to announce that halls of our dear Spellhold is now also a home of Argent77 and many of his mods. His works were available for quite some time both here and on Beamdog forum and became both renowned and praised, and are now getting well deserved personal subforums for easier access and discussions, while Argent77 himself is joining the ranks of official Spellhold modders. So check out his chambers, and enjoy what he has prepared for all BG, IWD and PST fans.

  14. Even though that Ooze's Lounge was released just some time ago, it already got it's first translation. The mod is now available in Chinese (thanks to merzbau). The mod also includes minor English language fixes (typos, mostly), one journal entry fix and simplification of Vulab's dialogue to ensure it will work better on non-EE version of the game. About the mod: The mod introduces a brand new part of Athkatlan sewers. You may now use the originally inactive grate in Slums to enter a locked part of the sewers and discover its dark corners. The mod offers three new areas as well as a couple of mini-quests, new items and graphics. Gather your party and visit the Ooze's Lounge, a special place with spacial wares, locked from most commoners, yet opened for adventurers like yourself, Bhaalspawn. Ooze's Lounge is part of Athkatlan Grounds mod series. Forums Download
  15. I am happy to announce that new mod series is now available at Spellhold Studios. Athkatlan Grounds has a very specific aim - to make Athkatla, our well-konwn BG2 city more interesting by introducing new places, quests and encounters. Mods that are already released: Southern Edge - this mod has already been available for a while. It introduces a brand new district with its own quest and characters, like Mairo Mudclapper: a halfling arcanist in need of some help in trackig down dangerous parasite hiding somewhere in the district. Ooze's Lounge - that brand new mod adds a new part of sewers. It can be entered through the grate next to Jansen house... but you must first find the key lost somewhere in Athkatla. The mod adds new areas, mini-quests and some new, quite unusual merchants. Both mods are available for both old BG2 and BG2EE, even though they were made with EE in mind. Forums Download
