I would like to ask for advice from those who are familiar with the varies mods that add a few more encounters and challenge to Baldur’s Gate: EE I have never tried any of these type mods, in fact I usually run the other way.
But lately I find my Candlekeep orphan is less than terrified to take that next step along the Coast Way road. This will just not do.
As I stick that first toe into the waters of more challenge, I find myself easily lost as I try to figure out if any of them might have what I am looking for. I’m really not ready for anything that makes all of the beasties in the game more difficult. And please, none that make mages smarter or thieves use their abilities in more cleaver ways. I just would really like to add a bit more.
For instance, one of my favorite parts of the game is at the very beginning when your protagonist is very weak and ill equipped. Just this morning, mine was hunting in the Lion’s Way area. She hoped to catch some creature with a snare to feed herself and Imoen with, or perhaps a wolf that she might skin in order to have something to sell in a nearby town. Unfortunately, there was little game to be found, and of those, none of the hides could be salvaged.
This got me thinking. I would really like to find a mod component that added a few more of the low level critters to the game. Maybe one that added a Winter Wolf here and there. Or perhaps a low level creature that would drop it’s bullets and sling. It has always puzzled me as to why so many enemies drop bow and arrows, but not slings. Surly the more primitive weapons that hurl small rocks would not be so hard to find.
Does such a thing exist? I realize that this might not be a very popular mod idea and it probably doesn’t exist, but it doesn’t hurt to ask.
Thank you for your time.
