One of the things many find sorely lacking in the Bioware NPCs are the more complex relationships presented by modern NPC mods--especially in regards to "friendships", the relationships NPCs have with the PC when not romancing them.

This mod adds a series of dialogues with Haer'dalis.

The Haer'dalis Friendship mod can be played on BG2:ToB, BG2EE, or EET. It should be compatible with all WeiDU mods, however, we cannot test every single one. It is only compatible with BGII: ToB. If you do encounter an error, please let us know by posting the message on our forums.

Although it is not required for the Haer'dalis Friendship to function properly, it is always a good idea to install the latest version of the BG2 Fixpack.
