Expanded Thief Stronghold

This mod expands the thief stronghold to make it more interesting by adding new quests and importing Narlen Darkwalk and Black Lilly from the Baldur's Gate Shadow Thieves guild into Athkatla.


From: Gebhard Blucher

I've heard quite a few people on the alt.games.baldurs-gate newsgroup, the Bame Banshee forums and elsewhere complain about the Thief Stronghold in BG2: some say that it is either dull, too short, annoying, or all three. Well, I like it. Along with the Mage Stronghold, it's my favorite stronghold in the game. I do agree, however, that it could use some spicing up. That's where this 'mod' comes in -- it expands quite a bit on the original stronghold, fixes some existing bugs and has a lot of (I hope) cute touches.

I want to thank Gebhard for his permission to support Expanded Thief Stronghold.
Here you'll find his homepage.
