berelinde's Keldorn Romance


This mod introduces a romance for the original BioWare NPC Keldorn. It is compatible with all BGII games: original BGII, BGII:EE, BGT, and EET.


He's loyal. He's brave. He's... single?


Life is an uncertain thing, and changes come when we least expect them.


This mod offers a chance to romance Athkatla's newest... and most reluctant... bachelor. All relationships take work, and this one takes more than most, but the rewards are great, for those patient enough to endure the trials.


This romance is not for everyone. It is certainly not a romance for the hasty. When it begins, Keldorn is grieving after the collapse of his 20-year marriage, and it takes him a long, long time to recover. It deals with mature themes, the real consequences of rejection and recovery, and some players may not want to go through all that, no matter how devoted the would-be love interest becomes in Throne of Bhaal. It is also very, very long, with 35+ talks in Shadows of Amn, though the talks are spaced more closely together to compensate for this.


To begin the Keldorn Romance, you must allow Keldorn and Maria to reconcile. He will only consider himself free if his marriage to Maria is legally ended, and imprisoning Maria will only separate them, not divorce them. Also, Maria's incarceration might present childcare issues that would be impossible to overcome.

The mod also features a quest for all PCs, romanced or not, though that, too, requires a reconcilliation between Keldorn and Maria.

Keldorn Romance updates to v2.



  • corrected his waiting coordinates in the Order headquarters for BGII:EE and EET after leaving by kickout dialogue
  • also added compatibility to "Sensible Entrance Points" (from component "Convenience Tweaks and/or Cheats" from TweakPack)
  • added compatibility note to readme

Compatibility note:

ToB, BGT: If you want to install the tweak "Sensible Entrance Points" from TweakPack (component "Convenience Tweaks and/or Cheats"), you have to install it *before* installing Keldorn Romance. If not, Keldorn will wait at a different place as usual in the Headquarters of the Order of the Radiant Heart if sent at home via (mod added) kickout dialogue (not in the common leasure room but in the prelate's office right behind the wall). This is not a game-breaking thing, but it's good to know if you are searching for him in the Order building.

Heyo, I have a question regarding cross-romancing:


Are there any cross-romance dialogues between Keldorn and the EE romances and/or any of the here listed mod romances, or do the romances just terminate each other without any dialogue at a certain point? For example, in the official romances the companions will get jeallous of each other and ultimately make the player choose, is there any of that with this in this mod?


Just asking because I do enjoy making my companions argue with each other, love-triangles work great for this >.>

No. Keldorn needs a lot of time to come in terms with his feelings - first the divorce from his wife and then his interest in CHARNAME, of which he thinks is too young (for him). And this will only come this far if there is no other romance active. It's in-character / wanted behavior.


His romance will end if one of the following romances are committed (this is not really related to your question, but I'll post the list anyhow):







-Aran Whitehand



-Sir Ajantis




-Weimer's Solaufein



And for others only not because they are not included (yet).

Thank you for the quick answer :)


Ah, not even in ToB then?

I did play the mod way back when the ToB portion didn't exist yet during pre-EE days, so I remember the romance never actually getting to any notable relationship status.

I was kinda hoping for something along the lines where Anomen proposes to Charname and Keldorn could interrupt, maybe.


So what then if Charname breaks up with their other partner in ToB?

Is there a way to restart things with Keldorn then?

Keldorn sneaking up to Anomen and CHARNAME while they retreated for a very personal conversation - that's definitely not berelinde's characterization of the courting Keldorn, sorry.


I don't think a revival of the romance for the case of another romance broken in ToB is considered in this mod afaik. The Keldorn romance builds on a long, long track of dialogues that reflect Keldorn's development until he permits himself to feel what he feels. These won't happen if CHARNAME is committed to someone else. And in ToB, there is just no time for any useful dialogue path. EDIT: It wouldn't be out-of-character, but it's not implemented (and won't be).
