Joyless Beginnings - Skip Act 1

This mod enables players to skip Fort Joy and start the game at Act 2 - Reaper's Coast

Enough is enough.

You've broken free of Fort Joy, braved the Hollow Marshes and saved Gareth's useless behind enough times. It's time to begin anew in Reaper's Coast.

  • Characters are levelled up to level 9 after Character Creation.
  • Begin the game with a full set of armor. No more rags!
  • Start off with 10000 gold per player avatar.
  • Bedrolls and some other important items are scattered around the starting zone.
  • All of your favourite companion characters are here and alive!
  • no invisibel shriekets

New in Definitive Edition:
  • Ever wanted to play the game? Now you can!: Malady no longer grabs you and breathes words into your face the moment Act 2 begins. This assumes you already know what to do in Reaper's Coast - but if you don't, you can figure it out from the journal or talking to other NPCs. If you're worried about Malady, you can find her in the usual place she goes after her exposition dump.

Credit goes to SimranZenov for providing the Skip the Hold mod for vanilla, from which he allowed me to sample story script to repurpose for this mod.

But what about those useful gloves of teleportation? By the way, I love this!

Either I am retarded or this isn't working. I load up the game, turn the mod on in the mod list. Start a new game, starts at the very beginning. As there is not description in this mod of how it would other wise be activated I am not sure whats wrong.

I can't kill stingtail and do Sebille's questline with this installed. Any way to fix this?

@Durg - There's a mod that brings black cat alive or transports it to you that might might work here. Could try that.

does this work for multiplayer?

is there no way to acquire the black cat? perhaps a skillbook by the bedrolls? it's the only thing that really matters from act 1 worth keeping that you can't access

I'm having a bug which is apprently caused by this mod.
In the arena of riftwood Jada doesn't die, the game just do nothing anymore, I even have to quit with the task manager.
I loaded an old save without this one and it works fine.

You can't get the main quest from Malady because she's already gone. You can still do the main quest though. If you don't know where it's located, google "Meister Siva".

Very nice. Though I would add one thing all my companions say I left them on the boat to die. Since I skipped that act I suppose that is accurate but makes you seem an evil one.Thanks for the great add.
