Mod for BGEE/SoD and EET by Roxanne and Within Amnesia.
V0.5 is Alpha release for testing
It can be manually installed on BGEE with SoD or EET provided that you have not yet entered BG City in the BG1 part yet. In EET it must be installed prior SCS, Sandrah mod (if you use them), and prior EET_End.
(Note: the mod does not support BGEE prior v2.5 or without SoD.)
History: The massive Sea Tower of Balduran rested on a rocky island in the bay of Baldur's Gate. Named after Balduran, the tower could be reached by a bridge from the western shore linking it to the mainland. It was used as a barracks, naval base, dungeon, and fortress. It had a full armory and catapults to battle hostile ships.
In the game: The legendary tower of Baldur's Gate's founder is located in the harbour of the city and can be found when passing west of the Water Queen temple along the city wall. You need a special pass to access the enclosed area.
You find temples of Helm and Selune as well as a smithy in the area. The library museum contains a small exposition of Balduran's deeds that includes the sea charts describing his last journey. Below the tower are dungeons that may hold some surprises for the adventurer.
There are two quests that can open the area for you.
- One is Mendas' quest to obtain the sea charts for Balduran's Isle.
- The other is given by Scar if you solved some of his other missions and he tasks you to look deeper into the source for all the doppelgangers who appeared in the city recently.
- help or defeat a black dragon
- learn more about Balduran from a headless ghost
- mind flayers below Baldur's Gate?
The mod adds 17 new areas to the city of Baldur's Gate, 7 new quests that involve/expand the main plot or existing side plots. There is also a connection to later events in SoD.
There is still an unfinished component that may add the Armour and Weapon Emporium where some of the items from the various quests may be enhanced. Further quests around the Tower and the surrounding area may be added over time.
