Something that bothered me from the first time I played Baldur's Gate II, was the weakness of many of the creatures. Among these were the elemental princes, the devas and planetars, and the various demons and devils. In Pen and Paper AD&D these are powerful and scary enemies if you get on their wrong sides. In Baldur's Gate II, they were minor obstacles to be plowed over by the Bhaalspawn and his/her party.
What I have done in this mod is to modify the Devas and Planetars that are summoned by the player so they gain most of their Monster Manual abilities and stats. I have taken some small liberties in how I adapted some of these abilities. Since the devas and planetars that are summoned are level 25 creatures and the monster manual lists them as much lower level creatures, I have chosen a class for each of the creatures and increased their statistics according to their class.
One of the largest changes the player will notice is that Summon Deva doesn't always summon the same creature anymore. There are now two different types of devas that can be summoned depending on which area the player is in.
The Astral Deva
Whenever matters in the lower planes require the attention of the powers of good, Astral Devas are employed. These powerful warriors have both the strength and purity for just such missions They can pass into any of the lower planes at will bringing the force of their justice to the heart of evil. Astral Devas possess another ability that will allow them to perform their missions. If directly commanded by the power that they serve, an Astral Deva can pass into any layer of the lower planes without passing through the higher layers. Astral Devas also commonly travel through the Astral plane, performing any needed tasks there. They are commonly sent to rescue good aligned mortals that have become stranded or lost in the Astral plane. (Shamelessly taken from the Monster Compendium 8)
The Movanic Deva
Movanic Devas are perhaps the most privileged of all the devas, for they are sent to the Prime Material Plane where they often directly aid the mortal followers of the good deities. They will normally only do this in moments of dire need and usually only for the more prominent or powerful mortals. Of course, Movanic Devas are able to pass directly into the Prime Material Plane at will. (Shamelessly taken from the Monster Compendium 8)
Planetars are powerful spirits that directly serve the deities and powers of the upper planes. Planetars will typically come to the aid of only the most powerful mortal servants of good.
