I started a new game and I was running out of time before SoD release! So, I had the idea of creating a mod that would allow me to summon any NPC in the game and get the items I could legally
obtain if I completed a full playthrough. With this mod you'll then be able to form a fully equipped and SoD ready party.
So, how does it work? First, download latest release on GitHub and extract its contents
- If you have the Steam version of BG:EE, in : 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition'
- If you have the Beamdog version of BG:EE, in : 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition\Data\00766'
Then, install the mod
by double-clicking the 'setup-abel_bookoflegalpossibilities_mod.exe' file.
When you're in game, you need to create the book
by opening the console (to enable it, check this thread
; then open it with CTRL + SPACE) and by typing in: 'C:CreateItem("BLBOOK01")
'. The item will appear in your inventory and you can assign it to a quickslot.
Upon use, a dialog will trigger and offer the options I mentioned first.Warning
: this mod lets you recruit NPCs directly by bypassing their original first lines of dialog. This is necessary for several reasons. The drawback is that it may prevent certain variables from being set normally. So, use this in a normal BGEE campaign at your own risks!Additional notes
: unfortunately, I wasn't able to set the items price to 0 (it's 1). So depending on your current gold, you may have to create some ('C:AddGold(999)').
I did my best to create an accurate list of the items you can get and their quantities. But, I'm not sure about the exactitude of it all. You can help me improve the list by reporting any mistake (I included a complete list in the spoiler below).
Especially regarding spell scrolls which I added liberally (2 per spell) not knowing about their presence or absence (but for the most patent ones).
Only magical items were included. There are a few exceptions (armors).
I also had to decide what to do for consummables, projectiles and wands. I decided to add a stack of 8 potions, 80 ammos per type and 8 charges per wand.
That's it! Enjoy!To do list

Do you recognize these?
Feel free to 'buy' these special items... or not!
Evil party ready for SoD!
