I've been looking forward to Ninde ever since I first saw her concept in the "mod ideas" forum, but it's taken me since this summer to play the mod, tragically enough! Ninde is definitely one of the better NPC mods out there, and her romance is interesting and unique. For once, it was great to see an evil NPC that actually seemed "real" - Ninde doesn't go out of her way to kick puppies, but neither is pseudo-evil like Viconia. I guess what I'm trying to say is that she is believable, and I really loved her character for that. Oh, and her backstory is absolutely fascinating, the best I've seen from an NPC. :)

I played through with a good character, and the romance, despite its hardships, was very rewarding there at the end; what a finale! The amount of choices given to the PC throughout the mod forced me to save and reload at each talk, so that I could see all the different responses. :P Ninde is definitely one of my favorites, right up there with Fade and Amber. :wub:

There were a couple of bugs and typos, but I had the very first version without any fixes or anything, so that was to be expected. Although others have reported Ninde's ankh being bugged, I had no problems with it, which was nice. I did have to set Ninde's RA to 2 with Shadowkeeper and add a variable to make her encounter happen, however. There was also one looping dialogue that I saw (where the PC can give her a massage at an inn, which occurred every time I force-talked her, so I just went back to an auto-save). I thought the lovetalks could have happened a bit quicker, but then, I usually play through Spellhold, etc. pretty fast. Other than that, though, it was all good. :)

In conclusion, Ninde is a top-notch NPC and I can't wait to see what else you do with her. :cheers:
