[REQUEST] Priest of Tempus kit in BG1

SharGuidesMyHandSharGuidesMyHand Member Posts: 2,471
Hello all,

If I may make a request, would it be possible for someone to create a mod that makes the IWD:EE Priest of Tempus kit a playable kit in BG1?

Thanks in advance to anyone who fulfills my wishes.

    Divine Remix does this right now, it adds a "Battleguard" kit.

    Also my own Scales of Balance mod adds a "Gloryblood" kit for multiclass F/C

    What more do you need?

    Is it the same kit as implemented in IWD:EE? And would I have to download additional content from these mods? - all I want is to just install the kit.

    DR's Battleguard kit is pretty close to IWD's. It was done by Camdawg after all, I think he made, or contributed to, the official one for IWDEE. So it might be exactly the same. You can install it all by itself.

    My Gloryblood kit is totally different - it's a kit specifically for multiclass fighter/clerics. I think of it as the closest you can get to a paladin worshipping Tempus. And it installs in a component with eight other multiclass kits.

    So you probably want to use DR's kit. Or just wait and see whether Beamdog brings it officially over to the BGs in the next patch. It's highly possible, but could be months away.

    I second your request, @SharGuidesMyHand

    A Battleguard of Tempus from the Devine Remix mod:

    - Can specialize (two points) in any melee weapon that a cleric can use
    – May cast Holy Power once per day every 5 levels (starts at 1st level with one use).
    – May use Rage once per day every 10 levels (starts at 1st level with one use), as detailed below.

    RAGE: The enraged state lasts for 1 turn. While enraged, a Battleguard gains a bonus of +2 to attack and damage rolls as well as to Armor Class, and becomes immune to charm, confusion, fear, feeblemind, hold, imprisonment, level drain, maze, stun, and sleep. The Battleguard also gains 15 temporary Hit Points which are taken away at the end of berserk spree, possibly knocking unconscious.

    Disadvantages:
    – Alignment restricted to chaotic neutral, chaotic good, true neutral, and chaotic evil.
    - Cannot be proficient in ranged weapons.

    But in IWDEE, the kit is a lot more different:

    Disadvantages:
    – Alignment restricted to true neutral plus all chaotic alignments

    So, the Battleguard of Tempus from the Devine Remix mod is not close to the Priest of Tempus from IWDEE.

    It would be awesome to have a mod that gives the Priest of Tempus kit to BG1&2EE as it's officially implemented in the IWDEE.

    :neutral: I'd call it close. Not the same, but fairly close. Holy Power every 5 levels, but a different innate every 10 levels. And an aversion to melee weapons, which seems appropriate for a follower of Tempos.

    It's close enough, anyway, that I'm not going to spend two hours making a mod that I personally have no interest in using. With existing mods, there's at least one Tempus kit available in each game, that's enough for me. If we're making more kits, it seems more important to get more variety, make priests of more deities, etc. If Beamdog brings it to the other games, great - maybe bother them for it in the next patch.

    Anyway there's nothing special about the IWDEE one. It's not "canon" in any meaningful way, as far as I know.

    If you just love the Chaos of Battle spell, you can export it from IWDEE with NI, drop it in your BG override folder, and change the DR Battleguard's CLAB to grant it instead of the Rage ability.

    So the Divine Remix version is basically a berserker/cleric combo, that can't use ranged weapons?

    Sounds interesting, but I'm not sure that I'd prefer it over the IWD version.
