Title: About EMaD

Every Mod and Dog

Baldur's Gate, Nashkell Carnival: The Great Gazib, embarrassed stoned maidens and Lord Binky the Buffoon.
Baldur's Gate II, Waukeen's Promenade Circus: Kala, depressed ogre maidens, wolfweres, shades and darkness.

Somewhere along the way, we stopped having fun.

'Every Mod and Dog' (aka EMaD) is a WeiDU-based mod that adds a selection of small diversions and sidequests to Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn. Its major aim is to recapture some of the more buoyant and adventurous spirit that was found in the original Baldur's Gate.

None of the components included in this mod will interfere directly with the original game's main plot and all quests are optional. Some of the quests were inspired by the various "Iron Modder" competition themes at the Pocket Plane Group.

Check the readme in the package for details about installation procedures. Have fun!

Components included in latest version
  • A Z-Rated Adventure updated
    Originally begun as an attempt to practise Iron modding, this component developed into something rather.. buggy. You meet a woman with a bad hair day and a shocking problem in the Umar Hills wilderness. Help her, and you'll gain a small and quite irritating friend.
  • The Promise of a Troll
    The Iron Modder 4 contest revolved around the theme 'A Broken Promise'. This component introduces the lovelorn troll, Tegenk, whose happiness depends on whether or not you can help him keep his promise. You can find Tegenk in the wilderness in the Druid's Grove.
  • A Bhaalspawn's Best Friend
    Sometimes it just seems as if the world is against you. You've had a tiff with your lover, your childhood best buddy is festering in a cell and you've just had yet another altercation with a thief/vampire/pirate intent on slitting your throat. Sometimes a Bhaalspawn just needs a healthy dose of unconditional love. This component introduces a stray wolf who seems to like following you around. He's quiet, undemanding, and no toilet-training is required. He can be found hiding in the forests surrounding the Temple Ruins.
  • Under Her Spell new
    Just when you think you've solved all the problems at Jermien's house in Umar Hills, a whole new set of romantic problems move in.
  • Character Medley (randomly updated component) updated
    So named because the component name "Random Encounters" has already been taken. This component will add a selection of characters to the game so that your Bhaalspawn will have even more strangers to chat with (or threaten/main/kill as the case may be). The experience/items gained from these quests are so miniscule/useless that the encounters not listed as separate quests. But hopefully they capture the feeling of some of the more bizarre episodes in the original Baldur's Gate. Think of The Great Gazib, and you'll know what I'm talking about.
Please look through the readme for a more detailed list of changes.
