[v1.67] Kale, a Halfling Barbarian for BG:EE, SoD and EET
A teller of tall-adventures he may or may not have had, Kale is a heroic seeming haflling from Gullykin, with a quick grin and a dashing cloak. However, he seems more grim than he appears, a smile hiding insecurities and frustrations with the inability to be great.
Your party provides a chance for him to prove himself to himself and the rest of the world, and he'll gladly bring on his canny ability to take a lot of hits and keep standing, his wit and charm, and his swing to help the party through whatever they are to endure.
In BG:EE Kale can be found in Gullykin, ready to get out into some action with the right group.
In SoD, Kale can be found in the Elfsong Tavern.
Class: Barbarian OR Warden
Kale uses the Barbarian Class in BG:EE, but in BG2 and optionally in BG:EE he comes with the Warden Kit
Warden: A warrior tradition placing emphasis on fighting in pairs, these warriors work best with a partner next to them, who they choose to elevate their ability in combat. The Warden takes on the defensive role in the pair, while their partner, the Ward, receives elevated offensive prowess. This comes at the cost of the own Warden’s skill with weapons being inferior to other fighter traditions, but there are few other partners one would wish to stand next to.
-May use WARD once per day. Gains one use at level 1, one use at level eight, an additional use every eight levels thereafter.
WARD: Designates Target as the Ward. The Ward is granted greater offensive prowess, while the Warden gains penalties for the same amount in place of bonuses to their defense for one turn. The bonuses vary on level. It does not stack with itself, and if the ward is changed, the previous ward loses their bonuses.
Level 1: The Ward receives +1 Damage bonus, -1 Thaco. The Warden receives penalties for the same amount, but gains 10% resistance to physical damage and regenerates 1 Hitpoint per 6 seconds.
Level 8: The Ward receives +2 Damage Bonus, -2 Thaco. The Warden Receives penalties for the same amount, but gains 20% Resistance to Physical Damage, and regenerates 1 hitpoint per 3 seconds.
Level 16: The Ward receives +3 Damage bonus, -3 Thaco. The Warden receives penalties for the same amount, but gains 30% Resistance to Physical Damage and regenerates 1 hp per second.
-May only become specialized in ranged weapons, and may not exceed mastery in any other weapon.

Q: Is this mod compatible with EET?
A: Yes. (If for some reason it is not, let me know.)
Q: Will you merge this mod with the other four in a single download?
A: Currently this is difficult for BG1, as the first three were heavily traified, and share some file names with the same number scaling. This means a lot of renaming would be required to get the mod to work. Thus I would rather spend time developing content for BG2 than configuring them in one file. It's not an explicit no, but definitely low priority at best. The BG2 parts of these mod however, will be an all in one file with convenience in mind.
Q: When will the BG2 content be released?
A: I'm in planning stages at the moment, and will start writing/coding officially on the 1st. I'll make a thread on that date in the BG2 mod section where you can follow progress. My estimated time of completion is an ambitious March. That'd be the one year anniversary of my first three mods.
If you have other questions, post below and I will respond swiftly.
