I wish a "show epilogues for all joinable NPCs" component

I usually have more NPCs in Pocket Plane than I can take into my party, and maybe also switch around a bit...

 

It would be cool to see epilogues for all of them, not only the ones in the party during end fight. Or even better, make it for all NPCs that ever joined the party.

 

While I do see the content-compatibility problem with some epilogues possibly mentioning the NPC participating in the fight against Melissan, I still think this would be a great feature for a Tweak.

Might be as easy as e.g.

 

IF
    Global("StartEndBios","AR6200",1)
    InParty("Keldorn")   >>>> change to BeenInParty("Keldorn")
    Global("KeldornBio","GLOBAL",0)

 

But, there is the issue that many NPCs have more than one epilogue depending on e.g. romance status, choose essence or not, reputation gained, InParty("someotherNPC") and lot more. This may lead to showing more than one epilogue for NPCs long gone from the party or some weird choice.

 

Technical feasibility is always one thing with mods, making real sense in the game is another.

 

Maybe an idea could be to do it for your selected NPCs and combine it with

InParty >>> show epilogue1

!InParty but BeenInParty >>>> show epilogue2

Dead but BeenInParty >>>> show epilogue3

!InParty and !BeenInParty >>> nothing

etc

 

I do this for my githyanki companion who leaves for home when the Five are dead at ToB battle but before Melissan is defeated. Her epilogue is shown even if no longer InParty but when the global to check she was in the final fight is true.

I love this idea.  I'm always interested to see the end story for other characters, but may not be interested in taking them into the party long term or for the final battle.
