The Valerie NPC for BG mod has been updated and is now available with macOS and Linux support.
With tensions rising between Baldur's Gate and Amn, and rumors of unnatural disasters plaguing Amnish territory on the Sword Coast, the Cowled Wizards of Amn have become involved in the looming conflict. Dedicated to controlling the use of magic in Amn and destroying magical threats to that nation, on the Sword Coast they act in support of the Amnish army. And with the rumors of demons in the mines of Nashkel, one young Cowled Wizard has taken it upon herself to learn the truth of the matter. Adventurers willing to work with a Cowled Wizard will find a willing ally in their Nashkel investigations and beyond.

The Valerie NPC mod contains a friendship for a PC of any race and gender with flirt opportunities for both genders that can be considered PG material.

Version 1.2 is EET compatible an includes a Russian translation (by JamesMaxwell & Arcanecoast.ru).

  • Updated cpmvars files.
  • Fixed kit.ids in classic games if BG2 Fixpack is not installed (preventing `WARNINGS` when compiling dialog files).
