So I was transformed into a Drow and told to get some egg back. Whatever. I love the Drow City, personally, since it's at this point the game decides to stop caring and just throws loads of experience at you so you become super strong

Everything was going fine, and I had just killed that lich in the tower when I got this

Bless. Also way to give me a choice there, mod

Anyways, I got the eggs back and gave them back to Adalon. Usually what I do next is make sure to kill her before she teleports away when you go to the Underdark exit, but this time she teleported away instantly. Well, alright then

Another cool thing that happens is in the next rom with the elves and drow fighting, once I enter the last room all the elves turn hostile. Theres absolutely no repurcusions for murdering them all, and its just extra experience, but its weird that they do this for no real reason

Anyways, I get out and...

Dammit Tyris, this is not the time!

Blah blah Elham, Bodhi, Lantern, whatever. I go straight to Waukeen's Promenade (after slaughtering Drizzt, for no reason other than I can and he can't stop me) and the gith who were after the Silver Sword attack

Now, they start by surrounding you so my first reaction was to put up Stoneskin on everyone. Wrong move, since I forgot about the Cowled Wizards. Cue a needlessly complicated fight where I have 4 wizards to my left, melee gith surrounding me and also more mage giths on the outskirts. More than a few civilians died from the spells, none of them were by my hand because, like I said, I'm stupidly powerful at this point

Also, I just want to point out that delivering Yoshimo's heart to a Temple of Ilmater gives you 200k experience. That seems a lot for such a simple fetch quest

I crafted some things, bought some other stuff, and then off to see Bodhi. Of course she took Tyris, that does not fly, ten minutes later all the vampires are dead. Then a quick jaunt to the Umar Hills, some incredibly generic "OMG you saved me kthx" dialogue and then we were on our way again

Except in the Shadow Dragon's Lair I got another talk from Tyris. After I left the Underdark I got a pretty decent talk about how if I die during battle my body turns to dust with no chance of ressurection, like Sarevok. In the Dragon's Lair she cut some of her hair off and gave it to me as a reminder of her, in case "something happens"

Now, I don't know if a sidequest in ToB makes me go fight Death Adder or something, but they won't just say this over and then not follow up on it

For those of you feeling like so far this topic has been a bit boring - you're right. Irenicus was the real attraction here, and I'm almost there now. I will finish SoA tomorrow, even if it kills me, and I'll make a start of ToB on Saturday

No option for "Sorry, Tyris, but I prefer a casual sex relationship."

But then, how could you not LOVE the mod creator's creation? You HAVE to love her! If you didn't love her, the mod creator would feel inadequate!

We already know the mod's creator feels inadequate, else she wouldn't have written the mod to make up for it.

So I had an awful nights sleep and thought if I was awake I may as well do something productive. Without anything for me to be productive about, I finished SoA instead

Fighting through the Elven City wasn't really a problem, and neither was the Tree of Life. Then, onto Irenicus where

Seriously!? The big bad guy has just turned hostile and the two of you want a chat!? Urgh...I hate you both so much

The first fight with Irenicus was weird. He starts with Time Stop, then a bunch of AoE spells. So I had everyone but my main run out of sight, and he meleed Irenicus. Occasionly he'd maze my main, but when he came back it went traight back to melee. I won, since Irenicus refused to cast damage spells after his early Horrid Wilting

Then we go to

SERIOUSLY!? WE JUST WENT TO HELL! THIS ISN'T THE TIME FOR THIS!

I ran through the evil options in the trials because why not? Final Irenicus again refused to do any damage to people so I basically couldn't lose

It was the start of ToB which made me a bit cautious. I was trying to save the game when Ellesime turned up. Here is the entire conversation with her, and it's fairly easy to guess my responses, since I answered them in a goody goody sort of way. Strangely enough, the early conversation was still a bit hostile

Yikes! It's going to be one of those mods!

If there is going to be a lot of conversations like this, where my choices are going to determine a lot about this mod going forward, then at least feel safe in the knowledge if I have to suffer through this then so will you all

I saved it and turned it off after Ellesime left, and I'll be back on it later to get ToB started for real

I keep meaning to name him AAAAAAAAAAAGGHH so the thief at the start of SoA is screaming your name but I always forget and put my name in. You're right, Paul isn't a particularly good name for it, so on my next playthrough he will be called Kevin

That Ellisime conversation was just plain weird. o_O


Hopefully the rest of the mod will be better ... or worse .... either will do.

A cool thing happened!

Remember how I said I saved and turned it off after the Ellisime conversation? When I loaded the game up I couldn't access any of the statues to move the story along

You see, when you load the game in the garden at the start with the Irenicus mod installed, the game auto saves so if you screw up the conversation you can load it. The game also turns off any action you can take with the statues

But since Ellisime never shows up, because I've already had the conversation with her, the statues are constantly set to disabled. I'm literally stuck in that stupid garden. That means I have to fight the last boss of SoA all over again! Thanks Irenicus mod! I've literally saw one conversation from you and you have already screwed me!

More cool things happened!

After beating Irenicus again, I got Sarevok and finished the first trial. Then, nothing happened

Remember that long conversation with Ellesime? Apparently I had to do that the right way and at the end of it I got Irenicus' Mask as an item. All of those screenshots in my last post? That was only half the conversation. Not to mention I had to load my last SoA save and beat Irenicus AGAIN FOR THE THIRD TIME TODAY

This is going to be one of those mods that leaves me loading the game repeatedly so I can jump through all these hoops the game forces me to go through or else it won't work. Wonderful. This is exactly what I need to help me get through ToB, the portion of the trilogy I dislike the most

I'm going away now to swear for a bit, and then I'll be back once I get Irenicus in my party because goddamn am I sick of this game
