If this mod is dead would you mind releasing the banters that were already finished? I have always been curious about them. :p

There were nothing really that could be considered "finished" exactly, progressed passed the 2nd draft. Here are a couple of examples that are more or less polished but they still required more work, of course:


Sarevok: (As you are falling asleep a thought brushes your mind, like a breeze of cold wind.)
Sarevok: Sister . . .
Sarevok: Sister . . . do you hear me?

PC1: Sa-Sarevok? GOTO Sarevok_1
PC2: Yes, I hear you. So, how’s Abyss? Or wherever else you are now? GOTO Sarevok_3
PC3: (Sit up and press your palms to your temples) Leave me, evil spirit! GOTO Sarevok_2
PC4: Someone - please, give me a potion of healing! I am delirious! GOTO Sarevok_4

Sarevok_1: So, you recognized me, sweet sister? Good, *very* good. GOTO Sarevok_2

Sarevok_2: Perhaps that is enough for the first meeting. You are trembling-

PC5: Of course I am trembling! It’s not like evil *dead* half-brothers drop in on me every day, you know. Sarevok_5
PC6: I am not trembling, you idiot! Sarevok_6
PC7: You . . . you can see me? Sarevok_7
PC8: Someone - please, give me a potion of healing! I am delirious! Sarevok_4

Sarevok_3: Coolheaded as ever. I suppose that is why you defeated me, dear sister. And you won it all. *And* committed a fratricide.
Had I been a winner, your fate would not have bothered me at all. I would not have felt haunted, if you were condemned to these tight quarters while I ruled.

Do you know where I am? I am in the Abyss, in a small secretive place you have created for me. It is a very hot place, <CHARNAME>, very hot.

Sarevok_6: I can make you shiver. Do you know where I am? I am in the Abyss, in a small secretive place you have created for me. It is a very hot place, <CHARNAME>, very hot.

Sarevok_7: Of course I can. That is one advantage of being dead. Would I have been able to when you were skipping along the Lion’s Way, perhaps, it all would have turned out differently.
Do you know where I am? I am in the Abyss, in a small secretive place you have created for me. It is a very hot place, <CHARNAME>, very hot.

Sarevok_11: And you won it. *And* committed a fratricide, <CHARNAME>. Had I been a winner, that would not have bothered me at all. I would not have felt haunted, if you were condemned to these tight quarters while I ruled.

Do you know where I am? I am in the Abyss, in a small secretive place you have created for me. It is a very hot place, <CHARNAME>, very hot.

PC9: Cut this mush. Why you are here? GOTO Sarevok_8
PC10: Ao almighty! I cannot help, but feel pity for you. You are my *brother* after all. GOTO Sarevok_9
PC11: Show me. GOTO Sarevok_10

Sarevok_4: Mwa-ha-ha-ha! Potions will not help you, dear sister. I will leave - for now. Remember me until we meet again. EXIT

Sarevok_5: I did not know that you’ve killed more than one of your brothers, <CHARNAME>.
PC12: Do not you *ever* dare to call me a kinslayer! *You* were the one to force this fight upon me! GOTO Sarevok_11
PC13: Ha-ha, very funny. GOTO Sarevok_3
PC14: Someone - please, give me a potion of healing! I am delirious! Sarevok_4

Sarevok_8: I will not tell you - not yet. I want you to know me before I tell you my reasons. I will leave for now. Remember me, until we meet again. EXIT

Sarevok 9: Do not you ever dare to humiliate me with PITY! EXIT

Sarevok 10: You have a quick and willing mind. That is good. Look at me!
(For a moment you see walls of dark stone shining from within with red heat and extending upwards as far as your eye can see. The space between them is narrow and hot. A figure of a giant man in spiky armor paces restlessly…) EXIT


CHAIN IF ~ Global (P#IMVI_MV1”,”LOCALS”,0)~ BP#IMO P#IMVI_MV1
~Viconia, how effective is spider venom?~
DO ~SetGlobal (P#IMVI_MV1”,”LOCALS”,1)~
== BVICONI ~What in the Nine Hells are you talking about, jalil?~
== BP#IMO ~Spider venom. I’ve been thinkin’ about using some as a base for my next batch of poisons. I reckon that a drow should know lots ‘bout it.~
== BVICONI ~It depends on the type of the spider of course. The jaluk assassins of House DeVir would occasionally coat their weapons with some collected from the deadliest species. It was not of much interest to me, however. I always preferred to deal with my enemies personally.~
== BP#IMO ~I can sympathize: I want to see Irenicus and Bhodi suffer at my hand.~
== BVICONI ~As an exile I was hunted by drow, driders and spider alike, but I was too busy not dying to study the poisons’ effects.~
== BP#IMO ~A pity that…~
== BP#IMO ~Wait, you were hunted as an exile? How horrible! Would you care to talk about it, aunty Viconia?~
== BVICONI ~Imoen, I did not survive as long as I have by being a trusting fool. Next time you aim to become a drow’s confidant start with masking that gleam in your eyes.~
== BP#IMO ~Dammit!~
EXIT

Damn. It's a real shame you are not going through with this project. After playing through your amazing mod 'Kivan and Deheriana Companions for BG2', I just know this was a mod worth looking forward to.

And after I found out the MV was supposed to be Sarevok...

Let's just say my eyes nearly popped out of my head.

Sigh. I'll just have to wait for Winterine's Sarevok Relationship mod to come out, which is the mod I'm breathlessly awaiting.

Is there any way to convince you to post all of the material you've written for MV?

Or a way to persuade you to pick this project up again? :p

Unlikely considering her announcement today...

No, I will not be working on this project, and I do not advise anyone to try out something similar. It fell appart for a very good reason: it broke too much in the game and the tie into ToB that I have thought of was either non-existent or very cheesy; it also heavily relied on sensationalism, which is quite gone with admitting that it was about Sarevok.

I don't like the idea of putting out very early, unfinished texts for preview for a mod where every text needed to be polished till it exploded into the palyer's face and made her believe things that are very contrary to what we generally believe as a Bhaalspawn. Sarevok needed to be very presuasive, and I merely started drafting the topics, let alone considering extra options and adding interesting twists of the conversations.

If you are really-really curious, you can always register and ask Cam to allow you an access to the protected room, that will contain every scrap of writing, planning, discussions etc held when the mod was on the go. On the other hand, if you are anticipating Winterine's mod, it could be that this version with a no-kidding evil Sarevok might just not be your cup of tea. :p
