I'm currantly playing the Amber Mod, she seems very ballanced to me like she fits right into the game and should have alwasy been there. She isn't super powerfull but gives you another option for a theif.

I want to make a plug for several mods I'm in the process of trying out. They all add banter, party interaction etc. So.. if you like this sort of thing, they are well worth checking out, a big thumbs up!

All seem to work just fine with the PPG banter pack, as well as the crossmod banter pack (I'm using this with Xan and Kivan right now)

Tyris Flare: Romanceable Human Female Fi/Ma for SoA

G3: Tyris Flare

Tyris is a great option as a mage for a good PC and also packs a bit more of a punch than your average mage.

If you like Romance mods, you cannot let Imoen Romance go without testing it. It's the best mod I have found, and though I recognize some "response options" are like wtfthisistoeviltosay" stuff, it adds to the feeling of having the choice.

The Imoen Romance Modification for Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn

The SoA part has been finished a WHILE ago, and the ToB portion has been restarted: expect it to be released this year (finally yeah!)

After much experimentation and discussion here, I have this as my new stable of mods:

-All four games
-Official ToSC and ToB patches
-G3 Fixes

Copy override

-Item Upgrade
-Underrepresented Items
-Quest pack (I am not certain it is in).
-EasyTutu* (Not this time for reasons of OS, Easytutu does not work with BG 1 patches, but with Danish OS I have to patch, so... a conundrum)
-Ashes of Embers (Tutu must be installed before this)
-Unfinished Business
-G3 Tweaks
-SCS II finishes I might add a few encounters from Tactics on the advice of Longshot.

Override copy2

-NPC Mods, I change between Sola, Saeri, Kelsey, Yas- one or two at a time and when wanting to change for a new runthrough I use Override Copy2 to paste to my override to avoid problems with NPC mods clashing.

I am open for suggestions for other NPCs, but must have content for ToB as well.

I really liked the Fade mod because she's not an insufferable therapy case like the Bioware romances, and she's a good thief. Sadly, no ToB content is available AFAIK.

If you kill him while he is on the table you can ctrl J onto it
Grab the cash and ctrl J off,

Not a cheat in my opinion.

If you don’t get him on the table and he gets off the battle becomes much more difficult.

Before I would freeze him with the staff of power and use the undead throwing ax from the copper cornet (Alderidge ?SP?) on him. Killed him before he had chance to move. Problem was getting the cash

Official game up to date. Play.

as for other mods, they are highly variable in difficulty, so other than NPC or cosmetic mods install at your own risk. For example installing "slightly upgraded generic enemies" in Tactics you will be in for a big surprise. Of them being probably stronger than vanilla endboss.
