Candlekeep Imoen is actually a level 1 mage?!

So I just randomly decided to add Candlekeep Imoen with ctrl+Q just because I've never tried it before see if she has anything different only to discover she's actually a level 1 mage with completely different stats...



*confused* O.o

    IIRC the original plan was for Imoen to be another non-joinable NPC you interact with in Candlekeep and (maybe?) a mage apprentice of Gorion's. Hence her poor stats (as she was never meant to be playable) and class.

    Unrelated noob question. How'd you get the SoD UI into BGEE?

    To further add the whole story behind Imoen's development, the original character in her place was a guard named Pique. Nothing much is known about him, other than the fact that he was there (as a party member) before Imoen was. When they decided to scrap Pique and create Imoen, they had no recording budget left. They cobbled together her voice set from a demo that had previously been scraped itself.

    That's why Imoen doesn't really have any interactions with the other NPCs in the game, they didn't have the time or the money for it.

    One possibility is to install EET. It uses a single UI for all of the game and it offers the SoD one, which I think is the best choice, personal opinion of course.
    There is also a mod that installs various UI variants for your use, I can't tell if SoD is among them since I don't use that mod.

    My BG:EE has the SoD interface automatically as soon as SoD is installed. And I actually prefer the old blue interface. Beamdog got a lot of complaints about forcing that black interface on people.

    I'm not overly keen on the black interface but I prefer it to the blue one, I personally would have loved a more true-to-vanilla teal UI.

    @GaelicVigil If you launch BG1 from the SoD client, it automatically gets the SoD UI. Personally, I would have loved to keep the Blue UI for the BG1 portion and switch to SoD UI when entering SoD. The blue one is my favorite.
