  • Alternatives

    Alternatives offers two new possibilities to consider when making the decision about whether to side with the Shadow Thieves or with Valen's Mistress. In addition to the traditional two, the player may now opt to side with a group even the paladins in the party could have no objection to... or he may opt to skip the whole decision entirely and set sail for Maztica. Alternatives also offers a different way to satisfy Mae Var's demand that the protagonist steal an artifact from a temple and an al (by Gibberlings3)

    Alternatives: Ever thought a paladin shouldn’t be working with the Shadow Thieves? Ever thought the thieves and the vampires weren’t evil enough? Or what if you just don’t care about all this Imoen nonsense and would rather leave Athkatla behind?

  • Black-Hearts-BG1

    For Black Hearts for BG:EE

    Great list! I especially second the rec for Black Hearts (for non-EET games, it also has a little ToB follow-up, installed via a separate download). It's an absolute delight, and really builds the character of Illasera, who is otherwise completely forgettable in the vanilla game.

  • Black-Hearts-BG2

    Black Hearts for BG2 (separate install)

    Great list! I especially second the rec for Black Hearts (for non-EET games, it also has a little ToB follow-up, installed via a separate download). It's an absolute delight, and really builds the character of Illasera, who is otherwise completely forgettable in the vanilla game.
