The Nalia romance mod

Fina92Fina92 Member Posts: 274
I hate to leave things unfinished... Does anyone have ANY information at all about if the mod will ever be finished?!?

And in case the author of the mod is lost forever etc etc etc..... Can't some other mod-genius do a separate Nalia romance mod?? It's really just the ToB part that's missing anyway, right??

    You could PM the original author Kulyok and ask if they desire to or if they mind someone else adding in the ToB content.

    i feel it's dead. the author went through alot of the stuff in the last few years and pretty much did not finish either of his mods.

    at this point other people finishing it seems to be the only option. ninde and fade would have never been finished if they were not taken up by different modders.

    It's not Kulyok IIRC, but JCompton who wrote the mod. Kulyok's Reunion works very well as a ToB expansion for Nalia, but doesn't explicitly refer to the romance (they still work well together, I would argue). The Nalia Romance is one of the few mods which work more or less despite being unfinished, anyway. Nalia has her keep to take care of and never really fit well into ToB anyway, in my book. There's Berelinde's "Homeward Bound" mod you can use to send her back after you play Reunion, and you even get to see her epilogue then. It's not the most fulfilling end to the romance, admittedly, but together these mods go a long way in helping suspend disbelief in ToB. I'd recommend the Romance regardless. It's not the Imoen romance or Amber, which made no sense at all before their ToB parts came out.

    you sure "Homeward Bound works with bg2ee? i looked it up and it seems to not been updated since 2010 which is pre ee.

    Oh no, I have no clue whether it works on EE! Sorry, should have checked before posting. It's a shame it hasn't been adapted yet, then.

    I remember seeing it credited to both Kulyok and JCompton as authors when I looked it up.

    When I have all my prior projects finished I can look at it at least and decide if it's something I'd want to write for, since it would only be a partial mod.

    @Skitia I got a reply from Kulyok and he (she?) referred to himself as the coder, whereas JCompton is the writer if I understood it correctly. Wonderful to hear that you will have a look at it later on! :blush:

    It's a well written mod. To my shame I often just used it to get the Keep in addition to another stronghold ;). A shame that the writer's life took a different turn, and that he likely won't be coming back to finish it. Nalia's arc through ToB makes it a tough mod to continue on a writing level as well. Though there's always the "Welcome to Dumpvale, population you" option- "you may be the son of a deity but {player chooses which thing their Charname has messed up on}...

    it only really adds romance talks to nalia and a new quest near the end. it has no tob content however.

    I know this thread is dead, but I was just poking around. Would be awesome if someone finished it/added TOB content, and you seem to know your stuff. Any updates here?

    Gwendolyne and I have been working on making this mod EE-EET compatible lately and should be updated soon. But the ToB-part is still not in the mod (as in the other mod - DeArnise Romance). So Nalia has two different romance mods, but both are for SoA only :(

    I believe Skitia said they do plan on working on a ToB version, but I think they’re on hiatus, which is why I’m not tagging them.

    Wait, there are two Nalia romance mods? Which one are we talking about here?

    ...And which one is better?

    This one is much more involved and better maintained, the other one (Arnel's Nalia Romance, incidentally the reason why this mod here is officially called the *de'Arnise* rather than the Nalia romance mod) featured a nice wedding scene but was rather crash-prone and has been consigned to the dustbin of modding history, I fear.

    I just thought I'd lend my support and show interest in seeing a TOB romance mod for Nalia. She seems like a perfect match for warrior types who take up her castle stronghold in BG2 and her character lacks any real content in TOB. I would love to see a little more of a character arc for her in TOB. Reunion is cool but I've steered away from the Nalia romance mods in the past because I knew they had no TOB content and would feel awkward and unfinished towards the end.

    A few moments that acknowledge her relationship with the player character, especially at the end of the game would be much appreciated. Jaheria's romance didn't have much content in TOB either but it at least showed signs of their romance and gave her a special speech at the end of the game. That would be enough for me but a more involved mod would be welcome as well.
