    Returning to BG after a two-year layoff.

    Not sure SoD was available last time I played.

    So, I've come over to EE after having downloaded both BGEE and BGEE when it they were first released.

    I'm considering adding SoD to my gameplay. I have some questions.

    1. Does SoD have to be downloaded WITH BGEE (like TotSC) or is a standalone (without BW) as a follow on to
    BGEE?

    2. If SoD is standalone, Can I carry my PC over from BGEE to SoD?

    3. Does EE Keeper work with SoD?

    Thanks, CT

    It depends on where you buy the game, and what platform you buy the game for. SoD is an expansion to BGEE, first released in 2016. It forms a story after BGEE, much like ToB comes after SoA.

    If you buy from Beamdog for Desktop, you can install BGEE and 'SoD' separately, but the SoD installation includes BGEE, so you basically want to install SoD and not BGEE.

    If you buy from Steam/GoG for Desktop, it works as a DLC, added to your BGEE installation. Note that if you want to apply any kinds of mods to your game, you need to run Modmerge first. For EEKeeper it's likely also recommended to run Modmerge first, so EEKeeper can actually see SoD content, such as new items.

    For Tablet/Phones, due to technical size restrictions, SoD counts as a separate game entirely, though you should be able to import from BGEE. I have no experience there.

    @CharlestonianTemplar

    1. Although technically SoD is an expansion on PC, it's not like TotSC, it's a separate game where you continue from BG:EE

    2. You can carry your character(s) from BG:EE to SoD

    3. Yes, it does work. Technically SoD is an expansion, so the EE-Keeper will open BG:EE+SoD, and you'll access both BG:EE saves and SoD saves from there.

    @Thels @JuliusBorisov

    Thanks so much for the feedback.

    I've already heavily modded my BGEE game so I appreciate not having to go back.

    Considering that SoD will work with EE Keeper is super. Means even if I have issues carrying my PC over from game to game I can recreate him identically there.

    I bought both BGEE and BGIIEE directly from Beamdog years ago. I will do the same for SoD. Thanks again for your help in clarifying. CT
