What's the best unit to pump out early? (In your opinion ofc) What's the best unit to take cities with? It's a bit much to take in all the new units and all my regular tactics obviously aren't working anymore xD Would love some coaching!
Amazing mod!

Heya, gorgeous mod by the way ^,^ just wondering how you get to underdark areas.. since I haven't seen any 'rothe' yet.. and playing as Lolthite Drow.

My issues were my own fault, I had forgot to uncheck an extended era's mod that was causing really odd issues. All is well without it on. I installed Advanced Custom Setup, howeve rhe Faerun maps are not in the list when opening the custom advanced window. Is there anything I can do to get the map to load? I think hotseat will work, just need the map. Thanks, and really nice work on the mod!

Good to know, thanks. I'll have to look into getting the expansion :) Still have my fingers crossed for the Fey'ri Warlock ;)

@knickalen If you want to engage in spellcasting (including transforming to werewolf) you'll have to use the BNW version. best, FA

This is really amazing, thank you! I know in a future update I'd love to see Tieflings/Fey'ri Warlocks. Ever since Neverwinter Nights 2 I have loved playing them. Also is there a way to have a character change into a were creature? I know next to nothing about creating anything in the game. Was just curious if something could be done based on having to ready some ranged artillery units. Elven Archer is rushed by melee, changes to werewolf. Anyway just idle thoughts and hopes. Truly epic job :)

@tbpkrark Next small update includes a more "big quest" monsters with different rewards, including massive experience for all friendly nearby units when the boss is killed.

Love it. Would it be possible for you to make the extra strong barbarians (dragons, necromancers, ogres, etc) give more exp than normal units when killed? It would be so much more satisfying to kill them!
