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 Sarevok, the PC's brother, expanding on Sarevok's experiences and struggles.

Sarevok Friendship > IntroductionBACK TO TOP



The Sarevok Friendship is a WeiDU mod, packaged in an extractable .RAR archive. Simply unpack the mod package into your Baldur's Gate II directory and run "setup-sarevokfriendship.exe".

To un-install, run "setup-Sarevokfriendship.exe" again and select the un-install option.

Compatibility and Installation Order

The Sarevok Friendship mod 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 contact K'aeloree or alternatively post on the forums.

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