I've been romancing Aerie, after being forced to choose her over Neera. I picked up Jaheira, and her romance progressed for a while at the same time Aerie's romance was ongoing. Now Aerie started her talk with "I've been thinking about some of the things you've told me." and my response was "I'd like that". Since then, I haven't seen any new lovetalks from Jaheira.
I had begun Jaheira's Harper questline. I did the Baron Ployer thing and cured Jaheira of her curse, and then did the Xzar quest, then a Harper girl came up to her to talk to her after the conclusion of Xzar's quest. Jaheira left my party, I rested outdoors, she came back, and started the Harper quest. She had her first lovetalk with me "Where to, Fearless Leader" after I finished the fight in the Harper's Hold.
I read that the next few steps in Jaheira's Harper Hold questline is dependent on romancing her, meaning no romance = no more progress in Harper Hold quest?
Checked the Lovetalk and Active in EEKeeper. Aerie is at "2" Active and "39" Lovetalks, while Jaheira is at "3" for Active and "13" for Lovetalks.
This brings me to a few questions.
1) Is there a way to keep Aerie and Jaheira's romance active at "2" until I finish the Harper's Hold questline? Seems like whenever I try changing Jaheira's "RomanceActive" back to "1" or "2", it resets back to "3".
2) When SoA ends and ToB begins, do romances reset and the other girls become romanceable again? Or am I stuck with SoA romance (Aerie in this case)?
3) If there's a mod to allow for multiple ongoing romances, would I have to start a new game for it, or will the mod apply to my existing savegames? Reason for this is when I was looking up romance stuff, I've read that characters get different endings depending on whether you're romancing them or if no romance.
A couple side things. I've finished everything there's to do in Chapter 2 except Harper's Hold questline. Once I get this resolved, then I'm ready to move on to Chapter 3 onwards. I still haven't gone into Watcher's Keep though, saving that for later.
