The mod allows players to decide who is going to stay with them for the entire Baldur's Gate 2: EE and ToB game. It places Khalid near Jaheira's cage. Help him, and Jaheira will become unavailable as she will be the one taken away by Irenicus, and Khalid will be the one to mourn her. Help Jaheira, and Khalid will suffer his original fate. Make your choice and... well... live with the consequences.
The mod includes a new portrait, voicing, a friendship path, new versions of Baron Ployer and trouble with the Harpers quests, new items and even a chance for Khalid to get his own kit after the Underdark.
There is no romance, but instead, there’s a little new non-romantic path for male NPCs: a new take on the brotherhood relationship I once tried to write for a different NPC. It's a deep, yet non-romantic friendship triggered by Khalid's difficult relationship with his half-brothers in Calimshan and Bhaalspawn's not-very-brotherly relationship with Sarevok and their lack of a father. Female PCs get something too - a special gift Jaheira found during the times of the Crusade and gave to Khalid, hoping they would one day give it to their leader together.
INSTALLATION AND COMPATIBILITY:
As with every other WeiDU mod: download the package, unzip it into your main BG2EE directory and run Setup-KhalidBG2.exe. Next, follow the on-screen instructions. This mod does not work with non-EE versions of the game.
The mod should be compatible with most BG2EE mods, however, there are mods that assume Khalid is dead and Jaheira is in the game. While the idea is to make this mod work with them as smoothly as possible, it requires contact with the other modders. Crossmod dialogue compatibility is handled by G3 Crossmod Banter Pack. Install it after Khalid BG2EE NPC and all other NPC mods. As for the original content that mentions Khalid's original fate (table in Irenicus’s Dungeon, one of the PC's dreams, et cetera) these are adjusted. If you find an original line that assumes Khalid is dead, please report it.
