I looked up the character list, and seems like there's a hidden character, Wilson. To get him, I need to do Rassad quest and Neera quest. I already have Rassad, and have the Amphitheater and forest revealed on my World Map. I read that I need to start the Wilson quest during Neera's quest, and Wilson is found during Rasaad's quest.
What I'm stuck at is this:
I still have Edwin, and waiting for his Edwina female quest to finish. Neera and Edwin can't be in the same party, same as in BG 1. So, how can I get to the Wild Mage Refuge to start the quest to get Wilson, *WITHOUT* recruiting Neera and having her romance auto-start the instant she joins? I want to postpone her romance because I don't want to add a romance interest until I'm done with ALL the other characters.
I'm not sure if Rassad's quest is timed or not. Can I wait on his quest until Edwin's quest finishes, AND I get Neera (or avoid her romance somehow)?
I am saving Aerie, Jahiera, Neera, and Viconia to become my last join-able NPC's so I can decide who I want to romance. I find that aspect more and more irritating, because in real life, romances don't start the instant you meet someone. Plus your romance doesn't break in real life with no way of recovering it when your date goes home, goes to work, visits her family or friends, or other stuff away from you. Seems like the BG romances can't handle being away from their love interest for 1 second, even right after meeting for the first time.
If there's no way to avoid Neera starting romance when I need to get to Wild Mage Refuge to start the quest to get Wilson and recruit him during Rassad's quest... Is there a mod, cheat, hack, whatever to reset Neera's romance to "not started yet" and then start her romance whenever I want it?
