Today I noticed I can rest and cast spells within Athkatla without fear of guards waking or interrupting me. I know there's a component to do this, but I don't believe I have it installed. Anyone want to venture a guess what's up?

 

I'm playing Enhanced Edition Trilogy, here's my log:

Yeah, well :/

 

Hoping someone else can figure out what's going on.

Honestly I'd assume this got borked somehow, check the scripts in area traps!

Good bet, but I'm afrad your last line there is gibberish to an ol' end user like myself.

 

I went to the guy in the Government District that you can pay to allow Magic, and something's up. While I can pay him the fee, I can also pick the line saying cowled have attacked me even though I already paid the fee.

But even if that explains the Cowled not showing up - it doesn't really explain why I can rest outside without being awoken by the guard, does it?

If I Recall Correctly - and there's no point in assuming I do because I don't even have the game installed - both the sleep guard and the cowled wizards are governed by invisible reusable traps (detection scripts really) scattered around the city areas. The script could've gotten stuck in some way.

So I did some testing, and maybe I'm just the idiot here? The cowled problem is still there, but I can't rest in the Government District without getting awoken by guards.

 

I can however rest freely at the Docks, which, as I recall, I shouldn't be able to?

If you can identify in which regions you can now rest, it might help to find the responsible ..

Yep, Jarno Mikkola. my Mega Mod FAQ. Use of the BWS, and how to use it(scroll down that post a bit). 
OK, desert dweller, welcome to the sanity, you are free to search for the limit, it's out there, we drew it in the sand. Ouh, actually it was still snow then.. but anyways.

^ Yeah I did so now. I can sleep safely in:

 

Docks

Bridge

Graveyard (though this is expected behaviour)

 

I cannot sleep in:

 

Government

Slums

City Gates

Promenade

 

Also: when I actually gathered the 20.000 gold (my game's price for casting license) and went to the Government District, I no longer had the option to buy. So I got rid of the money buy buying some stuff and throwing it away.

 

Anyway, this isn't a massive problem, but I do wonder what's causing the behaviour. I've installed those components before without many issues.

Wow this behaviour is really wonky. I have been able to sleep safely for 50+ times during a test in bridge district.

 

Now I can't, and a voiceover in the original BG-narrator voice tells me "monsters have disturbed you from your rest" or somesuch - though it's just an Amnish Guard waking me. A line I don't think I've heard before.
