Thx Bruce for inspiration! I've temporarily stolen the "Transmogrifier" from User
(I'll return it!
), put Immie inside, started the machine, and turned her to a Swashy/Mage!
The point is, I find the new form terribly fitting.... all goes in place at last!
If, for some strange reasons
rolleyes: ), someone wants to try this new proposed version...
It'll be part of my standard installation from now on (hey, I've done a careful work
with NearInfinity to all the needed files, even the one for ToB summoning
Oh, well, forgive me, I paste from the attached textfile
First, as kit description says, she's now "the epitome of charm and grace!"
Second, she's NG, the True Good alignment... I've never liked that backstabbing
modifier in her screen, why should have she learnt such a thing??? She's simply
one who does a bit of thievery! Backstab is gone now.
Third, she'll be surely more useful and fun to play!
She's been always in my party... so I gave her 161.000 XPs (end of BG1) at start.
Swashbuckler level 10! Perfect... Then I've set a CORRECT (finally!) amount of
points in her thieving abilities, pumping a little the ones she already knew,
leaving Detect Illusion to 0 (zero means zero, I thought...) but allowing myself
to raise Set Traps. She finded them so well...
Now she *can* try to use them! I also set weapon profs with a generic impostation,
so, using future mage-points, she can play a "regular" dual-wielding swashbuckler
(sword and dagger! Cool!), or decide to aim for the traditional Staff of the Magi
+ Short Bow combo. But this time, she can specialize! Then, I dualled her.
Now we have the new Imoen, mage level 1 in Chapter One!
(Don't expect too much help if you plan to use the Ilych Mod...)
Later, she'll be more useful and slightly more effective in combat... that's why I
reduced the XPs she was gifted in the successive CRE files. Also, when you recover
her at Spellhold, she'll have lost the spells learnt before (but this happens even
in the normal game, to my knowledge).. Bring some scrolls
I thought, lobotomization isn't that healthy to memory and brain functions!
But a boost in XP can still be conceded, at least for the tortures...
She knows from the start Magic Missile...
Fitting and coherent with the storyline: she'll really unleash her most powerful weapon
against Jonny, poor Imoen!
