This is of course the standard FAQ thread. Feel free to ask any questions about the mod and we'll do our best to answer them.


TECHNICAL QUESTIONS

Is this mod WeiDU?

Well duh.

Do I need ToB to install this mod?

Nope.

Will there be a ToB section?

Yes, but not yet. We're still working on the SoA material, so when that's done we'll go on to ToB.


QUESTIONS ABOUT JELINA HERSELF

What are her stats like?

See Who is Jelina?

Can I see her biography?

See Who is Jelina?

So is she a kitted multiclass? i.e. Fighter/Cleric of Lathander?

No. For one, she hasn't taken her test yet so it wouldn't be right for her to have the Cleric of Lathander kit. Secondly, while occasionally we like to bend the rules and think from a 3E perspective, BG2 does not have kitted multiclasses and we want Jelina to blend in nicely with the existing BioWare NPCs.

Does she have any items?

Yes, she has a simple ring that she was given by her teacher:

Jelina's Dawn Ring
This is Jelina's Dawn Ring, given to her by her teacher, Dawnmaster Eran, the night before he died.

STATISTICS

Armour Class: +1 Bonus
Magic Resistance: +10% Bonus

Useable By:
Jelina

Can I see her portrait?

See Who is Jelina?

Is she romanceable?

Yes, by any male human/half-elf/elf protagonist.

Will she be voiced?

Yes, by Alarielle.

Why does she worship Lathander, instead of an Elven deity?

Although she was brought up with an elven deity, she never really found what she was looking for in faith (if she was looking for faith at all). However, when she was taken in by the temple after her father's death, Lathander filled a hole in life.

How old is Jelina? If she's younger than 120 then the romance counts as paedophilia, right?

The short answer is no. We haven't firmly established Jelina's age, but it's certainly way less than 120. However that's not paedophilia.

As for a longer answer, the point is that while 120 is the age when an elf 'comes of age' it doesn't mean that they are a helpless child below that age. I've never seen anything to suggest that elves emotionally and mentally mature at a significantly slower rate than humans. I just assume that as they live a much longer time, their concept of 'you're quite young' is different to our own. All you need to know is that she'll act like a human 20-something i.e. she can handle herself in the big bad world most of the time, but she's still quite young really. And as the protagonist is also supposedly a 20-something themselves, that makes the romance just fine.


ROMANCE RELATED QUESTIONS

How many lovetalks are there?

About 30 plus a couple of floating ones.

Can I flirt with her?

Of course. Basically, once the two of you have talked about you being a Bhaalspawn mutual flirting can begin.


AND FINALLY...

When will the mod be released?

Hopefully not too long, but if we give a release date it'll only come back and bite us on the arse later.

Are you looking for beta testers?

Not yet, no.

Great to see her revealed, finally. Congrats, Grim and Alarielle!

You seem to have forgotten the eternal question about any mod, though: any ETA? :(

I'm afraid not, as yet. We would prefer not to reveal one as that will only lead to people quoting it at us as it flies past ;)

I noticed no alignment requirements are stated for romancing Jelina. Will there be potential for the NPC to shift allignment herself, like Viconia and Anomen?

Other than her ring, what starting equipment will Jelina posses? Knowing her proficiencies would also be welcomed information if you are willing to share it.

Nope no alignment shifting. While she has no restrictions based on you alignment (i.e. no preconceptions about you) if during lovetalks you act in particularly evil ways, she may end up breaking the romance with you (or leaving in some cases).

As for her starting equipment it's pretty basic really. Off the top of my head she has her ring, studded leather armour, a regular mace (it might be +1), a bog standard silver amulet and some healing potions. Most of her profiency points have been spent in maces (as that's the favoured weapon of Lathander).

I'm in love with Jelina's portrait. ;):(:p

It seems now I'll have to play this game at least twice more (it was at least once because of upcoming Imoen's ToB romance).

Thank you! :D

In fact the first comments about the entire mod were related to the portrait. Someone, let's call him Suleci, made the comment of 'OMG SO HAWT', and errr... Drini asked 'Who is she and where can I meet her? :D' :p

Oh and we'll be releasing the SoA content first, so I guess technically you could play the SoA section with Jelina and then play the ToB Imoen romance.

I went camping over the weekend. My immediate thought following my return and a good, long nap was "Hm... I should check the forums". However, I soon decided that despite my long absence, there wouldn't be any new developments. Lo and behold, I was very much so incorrect. I hate it when I'm wrong, but in this case I'll let it slide! This was a very pleasant discovery!

Good luck to the both of you!

this mod sounds interesting, i shall have to try it out when it is released.

hmm will be weird having both jelina and auren is the same party, seeing as both of their portraits are of actresses from the tv show charmed, lol, not really sure if it can be done or if you would be interested, but some iteraction between these two npcs would be cool, esp if the mentioned aspects of the show, lol

is there just the one quest for jelina is/will there be more?
so removing here from the party her default place is the temple of lathander unless somewhere else is chosen?

And yes, we're aware that G3 already has an NPC with Rose McGowan's portrait :(


Well, there almost certainly will be some Crossmod Banter between the two but we will be very careful not to break the fourth-wall. It's possible we might slip the word 'charmed' itself into a banter, but as I said, we want to keep everything serious and in-character i.e. no 'if there's a 3rd edition of this world blah blah blah...'

Well, you're half right. After the business in the Umars Hills is concluded you have to return to the temple in order to ask the Dawnmaster in charge of her training whether it's okay for her to travel with you for a while (so I guess that could constitute a very mini-quest in addition to her test later). However, if you ditch her from the party she can't just hang around in the temple waiting for you, she has to complete her training i.e. if you ditch her, you won't see her again (until ToB, where you'll have an interesting summoning dialogue - I hope).

There's a lovetalk specifically on that topic, as well as her opinion on lack of pubes.
