Q: Where do I pick him up?
A: Pick him up near the Fighting Pits in the back of the Copper Coronet before starting the Slaver line of quests.

Q: Much much does he talk throughout the game?
A: Arath has many different talks throughout the game, which more than doubles if you decide to romance him, for a total of over 40 talks.

Q: Does he have a quest?
A: Arath's quest will begin soon after you exit the Underdark in Chapter 6.

Q: Is a soundset on the way?
A: Voicing was not a priority in getting the mod released, however, once the right voice actor is found he will most definitely be voiced in a future version!

Q: How rude can I be to him?
A: Feel free to bully him. But a word of warning: he gives as good as he gets!

Q: Does he have any major arguments with other NPCs?
A: Arath does not get along with a variety of NPCs, but will not come to blows with any of them.

Q: Have you got any plans to expand the mod or add new dialogues?
A: Absolutely! After ToB has been written, there are plans to add both voicing and player initiated dialogue.

Q: Speaking of which, where are they?!
A: Due to time constraints, PID had to be cut from the initial release. It will definitely make it into a future release!

Q: I've got an idea for something I think you should add!
A: Great! Send your idea to me and I'd be happy to see what I can do.

Q: I'd like to translate Arath into another language, can you TRAify the mod?
A: I generally leave the first few releases of a mod un-TRAified because dialogue errors are easier to spot that way, but if you really want to translate the mod I'd be happy to TRAify it. Just let me know.

Q: Crossmod?
A: Crossmod will definitely be added in future versions.

Q: Can I write crossmod with Arath?
A: Sure, like all of my NPCs Arath is free for anyone to write crossmod with--you don't need my permission to do so or anything ridiculous like that. If you'd like me to check over your banter(s), I'd be happy to.

If I'm posting in the wrong topic, please kill me and bury my remains in Candlekeep.

My question is: is there a magic button I can push if Arath's strings are all mixed up? Or is there a possibility of such a thing in the next version? I had to reinstall the game (again!) and his name etc. is just a bunch of random dialogue.

Unfortunately not -- I would really recommend against using saves from old game installs, changed mod installation order (which is why this happens) can cause all sorts of problems.

Where would you recommend Arath be placed in a custom BiG World Installation?

Wherever you install the bulk of your NPCs :)

Ah -- where is the romance supposed to start? I've had the talks about being Bhaalspawn, and he's accepted it, but is there anything that's supposed to trigger the romance/ how long should it take for lovetalks to start?


I keep speeding through the game, and can't access CLUA, so . . . ^-^;; It'd be good to know. Also, are there any stats that I should check?


Sorry for all the questions!

It should start approximately an hour after the Bhaalspawn talk cycle finishes (four talks). Romance requirements are CHR 14+, no short races and no half-orcs. :)

Right, I might be a little out of line here, but ive got to ask.  When is there a possibility to see PID with Arath? or has he been discontinued? Ive really looked forward to it, but as of yet have not found any news about it. I ask here because I simply dont know where else to ask.
