The more I wait, the harder it is to do this. So, for those of you whom I have selfishly betrayed by disappearing, here is the mod. It's almost certain to have some bug or miss something. I think some romance conflicts haven't been implemented. Maybe I will be inspired if someone actually reports a bug. Or has a suggestion.

No, I haven't been working on improving the mod lately. I've been delaying doing a test play personally, and it doesn't look like I'm going to do it soon. So this mod isn't really finished. Also, the voice actor has been lazy. :P

Feel free to install if you want to risk it, or open the text files to read.

** To meet Fiars in game, talk to Lenna at the Copper Coronet and take her quest. **


On the brighter side, modding BG has taught me a lot about programming/scripting. From zero knowledge to some knowledge. I am happy to have started it at a young age. Of course, when they taught me C at school, it was completely different, but I was so glad to have had at least some experience with compiling things and some understanding of how things have to be connected, some basic feel for programming (even if you call this stuff scripting). I think I've come a long way since, but have in mind that these scripts were written at zero knowledge level.

yay! Nice!
I think you should find some time for him, though :P
And it's so nice to know that you come here from time to time!
Cheers!

EDIT:
A question - why don't you use download centre? Some people don't check this forums, but only download centre, when they look for released mods.

Hi :)
I didn't know I could use it. I did now. I hope everything is OK, well, with the download if not the mod. :D

Moved to Misc Mods--the beta section is only visible to modders, alas!

Glad to see it out somewhere, Bardess :) Congratulations!

Nice!
Please, stay for a while! I can still remember when I was beginning to write mods and I was checking if there's any progress in Fiars NPC etc...

Download the package, people ;)

Downloaded. Will include in my current install run, and check things out with Fiars in a party. I've been wanting to test, but been having problems getting a multimod install to work properly.

There used to be a bug with a talk (Fiars attempting to start a talk, but no conditions are met - this made him stop walking and act like a retard :)). I hope this is corrected in the version I uploaded. If not, players will need to type some debug commands in game to set a variable.

As far as I remember, you talk to Lenna, a woman in the Copper Coronet and begin a quest that leads to finding him. He hasn't been tested in the late stages of the game. Apologies if he ruins your playthrough.

It's probably a bug. I'll have to look into it, as I'm not sure myself. I think he was supposed to be able to talk to you.

I think I'll wait a little longer before installing him so that I won't risk my latest install (a couple of days ago) going bad.  But I've been watching and waiting for him since you were at CoM (I think!)  I lurk a lot.  :)  I hope you will find more time for him because he will probably be not only interesting and fun, but very very useful since I need a thief many times and Nalia stinks and I lose Yoshi don't take him.
