Currently, Romantic Encounters is a mod which consists of fifty submissions for joinable and non-joinable, Bioware or completely new characters, by thirteen authors.
Additionally, we have a component with Anomen's, Aerie's, Jaheira's and Viconia's reactions for the more 'obvious' encounters. And an adult content warning, as well - some of these encounters are pretty steamy.

Mod history: Version 1 of Romantic Encounters was released on July 31, 2007. It consisted of forty submissions, and was created by eight people in two months. You can read the original Romantic Encounters topic here.
We have forty encounters. *That's* a lot of stuff. Some of them are with joinable NPCs, who have romances, banters, quests and other stuff added. Some of them are with the Shadow Thieves - the characters who invariably attract attention of quest and NPC modders.
So, what did we do to ensure our mod will work with others as smoothly and efficiently as possible:
- we always use a prefix. All our variables are RE-prefixed, and we never use yours. This also means that we don't set mod romances to 1,2,3 or anything else.
- we do not touch, edit or delete Bioware dialogue. If a reply was there, it is there.
- if we add a branch to existing dialogue, we loop(or, rather, COPY_TRANS) back whenever possible.
- we add, not overwrite. If some other mod added to Aran and Edwin, we add a little more - we do not write over the other mod's content.
(We do add a general script to Ribald - tell us if you're planning to use it, and need cooperation).
Modders: if you think you could face potential problems with any and all Romantic Encounters components in your released mod, please, tell us, and we'll do our best to work something out.
Players: please, report any and all issues you encounter, we are always happy to hear from you. Your Weidu.log file from your Baldur's Gate II directory is also very welcome: you could open it with Notepad, and copy-paste the contents in your post.
