I prepared a new mod for everyone who believes that Skie's story should be continued in BG2EE, especially after everything that happened in Siege of Dragonspear DLC. I present you my project: Skie - The Cost of One Girl's Soul.
SKIE: THE COST OF ONE GIRL'S SOUL
AUTHOR: Lava Del'Vortel | PLATFORM: BG2EE
ABOUT THE MOD:
The mod gives the player a chance to continue the Skie plot begun in Siege of Dragonspear. The DLC gave the Silvershield girl a very important role in it's plot, but I felt it was so important that it should be somehow continued in BG2 portion of the game. The mod has two different components:
=> component A - Skie: The Cost of One Girl's Soul - New quest for Baldur's Gate 2 EE => this component provides a new quest that gives player a chance to save Skie Silvershield after what happened in Siege of Dragonspear. You should be warned, though, that saving her comes with a price. The mod starts in Irenicus' Dungeon, when you find the main quest item.
=> component B - Allow Skie to return as a joinable NPC => this components allows you to join Skie if you decide to help the Silvershield girl and succeed. She will find you after some time. She will start to look for you in certain inns, so remember to stop and rest a while from time to time. The NPC comes with some timered and situation talks, banters with each NPC (at least 2 in SoA + 1 in ToB), interjections, an epilogue and other things joinable companions should include. Note that there is no romance here, as I wanted to stress companionship and loyalty based on friendship rather romantic love. The NPC component was written to enjoy Skie's presence in the group, rather than provide hundreds of lines, but she should talk to you once in a while. In terms of size, she could be compared to Kulyok's Tiax or Coran.
Note that Skie in this mod is supposed to continue the Siege of Dragonspear character, so Skie may be a tiny bit mature, but still a bit reckless and will not hesitate to tell how she feels about people and events. The change in her character may be seen in both dialogues and soundset.
Also, to make her portrait blend in better with Baldur's Gate II style of portraits, the mod uses edited version of her original picture.
The mod includes some crossmod. Check the up to date readme file for details.
Special thanks to @typo_tilly
- she is the one who proofread the whole text and helped me to release this mod.
How to join Skie:
After your talk to Missini, wait for 2-3 days and rest in any of Athkatla's Inns.
