    Jaheira, Aerie, Anomen have vanilla romances.  Then again, so does Viconia, and there's a Viconia friendship mod.

    I could have sworn I've seen a Nalia friendship.  Of course there's at least 2 romances for her (one being a rare NPC-NPC romance).

    So that leaves Edwin, Jan, and Keldorn.  Scraping the bottom of the barrel there.

    I think that Aerie and Jaheira's initial lovetalks could be easily converted into friendship talks with a female character. It's kinda awkward that such conversations about loss (Jaheira's) or motivation to persevere (Aerie's) can not be started as a friendly talk.

    there is a diffrence between a friendship and a romance. some people want to have the character have lines over the course of the game that is not about romancing charname. that's why people make them.

    yoshimo has both a romance and a friendship mod as does imoen.  keldorn and nalia both have romance mods but i would not mind them also having a friendship mod, same with edwin.

    Jaheria's romance is essentially a friendship until the last five talks or so, and even these could easily be rewritten to accommodate. I've coded a Jaheira 'friendship' (simply the romance minus the erotic parts, really) for my personal mod collection a while ago, but the issue in hosting it as a mod is that you either have to use the existing strings and modify some conditions, which could lead to awkward mod interactions treating your friendship as a romance, or copy the whole thing as a parallel structure, like the Viconia Friendship does - but in Jaheira's case that would involve virtually every single dialogue.

    thats like how wings does it. besides the first 2 talks alot of them are modified aerie romance talks used for a friendship track.

  • IseweinIsewein Member Posts: 406
    Aerie's Romance is easier though in so far as that it does not interact with quest events. For Jaheira, the problem would be that other mods could check for Jaheiraromanceactive=2 and treat it as a romance if simply rewritten, or on the other hand fail to reference the Harper quest events if those were to be duplicated with new variables altogether.

    Really excited to see Minsc friendship! He is an awesome character but lacks content (like most other NPC though). Finally we have a chance to learn more about Giant Space Hamster and his ranger :)

    As for romanceable characters - converting romances into friendships is a good idea, but I think additional friendship conversations won't hurt too. If we take Aerie, for example - many people don't like her because she is too focused on the loss on wings. Even though she is one of my favourite characters in BG2 I agree that it would be nice if she had additional content that would tell more about her personality. I'm currently playing with NPC Flirt Pack and you know, even flirts expand her personality and make her a bit more complex character. So, like I mentioned new content for them could be nice as well.

    i was actually wrong when i said wings was just repurposed aerie romance talks. they are acually new talks.

    really all the official romances should also have a friendship mod. they make it so you get to know the character without having to romance them which is a major issue with unmodded bg2.
