Humble Bundle has a new bundle out featuring RPG Legends like Neverwinter Nights and Baldur's gate. Available for £16.64 GBP/$20.00 USD, it's a good set for dedicated RPG fans, so here's five mods to enhance the value if you pick it up!



A comprehensive mod for Wrath of the Righteous that completely rebalances most parts of the game, creating consistent challenges from start to finish for even optimized parties. Also adds a complete procedural loot and encounter system that works with the game's systems to create a semi-randomized gameplay element every playthrough. New spells, classes and abilities are also included and will be further developed in Worldcrawl.


Some mods add new adventures and others simply hope to add immersion - such is the case with this mod for Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition, which overhauls seventy seven portraits across all versions of the game included in the Enhanced Edition. Deceptively simple with quite a significant contribution in actuality, mods like this can sometimes contribute just as much to the feel of a new experience as a whole dungeon.

Epic Endeavours is a mod for Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn. It's essentially a hack 'n' slash mod with a storyline not dependent on the Baldur's Gate II scenario but instead, it takes players in a fantasy world full of danger and a series of quests. Epic Endeavours contains many new monsters and items, over 60 new areas, 13 new quests and concludes with an epic final battle, with the player having to face over 200 monsters. I just want to preserve the file with respect to the creators because old links usually don't work.


Once again, evil is stirring throughout the land. You are summoned by Khelben Blackstaff, the Archmage of Waterdeep. He suspects that evil has taken over the Temple Darkmoon. Before contacting you, he had sent his trusted scout, Amber, to investigate, but she has disappeared and has not been heard from in three days.


Easthaven+ features lot of fun extras that enhance the depth of the game, as well as extra RP characters that are following their own campaign to rid evil or good from Easthaven, and the world that makes Icewind Dale. Modified weapons, monsters, spells, skills and characters are what this mod is all about. There is also a set of new game rules, allowing the player to reach higher levels, and see skill progression reach a new level (literally). Easthaven+ is, in effect, a free expansion for Icewind Dale.


There's our picks for five games from the Humble Bundle RPG Legends set, with the offer lasting until October 27th. What are some of your favourite mods for these (and other) RPG classics? Let us know in the comments down below!

I saw that in a few weeks it will be available on consoles as well, so it will have a bigger fanbase....my question is: is this version easier to mod?

To everyone! i recently uploaded an addon to Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition which lets you experience the original pre-rendered cutscenes and not the cartoony ******** that Beamdog tries to force up your throat.

You can check it out in BG:EE add-ons section or just checking the add-ons in my profile section.

Also, i'd like to credit all the work to Sam. from Spellhold Studios Modding Community, i'm just feeling the urge to share his work with all of you.

Nonetheless, you can visit the original post with this link and thank him personally: Shsforums.net
(which i'd rather prefer tbh)

I loved the old Baldur's Gate, but I'm curious is this update worth it?

Here's the big rub guys. You will have less mod compatibility. The upside is that the game is now . . .

1. More Stable
2. Multiplayer Actually Works (For people saying it does on the old game - go play a Cleric, Turn Undead, then get back to me)
3. Has a neat zoom function
4. A few custom additions not found in the old games/mods

I would say it is, because honestly - $20 is what? Three drinks at a bar? To hear people bitch about the cost is a little on the absurd side. If you like BG, get it. If you only like playing the old mods, don't mind instability (Beregost I look at you!), and generally hate change - don't get it.

Hey feillyne, since you are always helpful, could you tell me if the enehanced edition is worth getting or should I just stick with my heavily modded version (that still runs pretty badly D:)?

On the other hand, Enhanced Edition adds new content (quests, areas, a couple of characters, GUI).

IMHO, it's inferior to BG Trilogy and BG big mods combined, but nonetheless can be worth getting after all.

Mixed feeling about the Enhanced Edition. Had problems with OpenGL drivers, plus gameplay (items, classes, etc.) seems to be a way poorer than BG modded.

Which modded version do you have?

Recommending Baldur's Gate Trilogy: Moddb.com

it merges two classics plus the expansion packs, all classes / improvements are available anywhere, etc.
Additional add-ons for it can be installed.

Thou you may need to poke around to get mods in the correct order - many of them seem to be slightly game breaking. Installed BG Trilogy + a few mods compatible with BG Trilogy, and no bugs/critical errors, so recommending them: Shsforums.net

Ok thanks. I might actually wait a while before replaying BG and then buy the Enhanced Edition dirt cheap on sale, when it's got some mods to make it better (I heard they improved mod support).
