Greetings fellow Baldurians!
As I was debating with myself as to what character class I would choose for my next BG:EE playthrough, I happened to come across this picture of a barbarian-looking female warrior and instantly fell in love with it. Problem solved!
(I just hope that LadyRhian doesn't visit this thread...)
I've also decided that I've become sufficiently curious about the NPC Project mod (and the mod is reportedly largely compatible with EE) that I've decided to give it a try for the first time ever.
In addition, I'm also very much intrigued by @CaloNord
's cleric/ranger mod NPC, Ellyrian (see thread here: http://forum.baldursgate.com/discussion/32979/ellyrian-the-cleric-ranger-npc
), and I've decided to give that a try as well. Calo has admitted that the mod is still in a somewhat developmental stage, but I suppose that the opportunity to add a cleric/ranger to my party was just too good to pass up.
Shortly after creating a character and beginning a new game, I came across @Pecca
's mod that installs the BG2:EE interface into BG:EE (see here: http://forum.baldursgate.com/discussion/31069/bg-ee-gui-mods-grey-gui-and-gui-from-bg2-ee/p1
), so I added that mod to my game as well.
There's also a handful of other mods that I'm considering possibly installing as well, but I haven't made a final decision on those yet.
I'm also debating whether to install the Mur'Neth mod, but there are currently some EE compatibility issues with it - namely, that the game doesn't recognize Mur'Neth's unique thief kit, although the character still appeared to function properly in the cursory testing that I did. I'll wait until I approach the character's location before making a decision.
In the end, I decided to start this thread not only to chronicle my own adventures, but also to showcase some of the hard work that our fellow forum members have put into either developing and/or improving upon mods. Hope you all enjoy!
***** UPDATE *****
In the months that followed the creation of this thread, I ended up scrapping my initially intended playthrough, then re-rolling the same character and completing the game with her. See my recent posts for more details.
