The key to a good mod is a lot of testing, and we're asking for your help. We've put together a special alpha build for the purposes of playtesting balance and bug hunting. It's your chance to help us while getting a sneak preview of the mod.

What's included:
* NPC-Delainy banters
* Delainy's spear upgrades
* Delainy's unique howls and skills
* Delainy's three encounters

What is not:
* Love talks and romance tracks
* Interjections into existing SoA quests and banters
* Delainy's main quest
* Audio (music and voicing)
* Custom artwork

Fixing bugs and addressing balance issues are our primary goals behind the release. We're also interested in suggestions on the banters as well as rewards attached to Delainy's encounters.

The release will contain some mild spoilers and offer a preview of what will be in the full Delainy release. You will have access to a separate forum for the testing. If you're interested, please send a private message to Bri or myself.

Thanks all!

You know I'd love to help out but I'm gonna be quite busy with Harvey.  Maybe I'll be able to lend a hand when you get to full beta-testing (i.e. I'll wait until I get to experience Bri's fantastic romance!  Did that come out right?)

PS: Shouldn't the Bugs and Balancing board be in the Workroom section?

I know the feeling, Grim. I really wanted to help Beta your Harvey mod, but I'm in a bit of the same situation.

Heh, at least it will be a surprise for you. :D

At least you didn't take me saying I wanted to 'wait to experience your fantastic romance' as some cheesey chat-up line!

If anyone can explore every avenue of cheese for playtesting, it's UU. The big question is if you find some horribly exploitable loophole will you tell us? :D :D

Thanks to Grey as well!

I'm up for Alpha testing.  Any requirements on the game?  i.e. other mods and stuff?

Install whatever mods you want; there shouldn't be any incompatibility issues yet, knock on wood. I haven't inegrated the shapeshifter rebalancing from Wes or aVENGER's rogue rebalancing, so don't expect changes from those in Delainy if you install them.

I'm running with some ease-of-use, Oversight, Idobek's tweaks, SimDing0's tweaks, Weimer's item upgrade, banter packs (I anticipate the banter accelerator will be good for testing), and flirt packs.
