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 will the lohse quest ever be seeable?

The quests aren't listed but you can still trigger all of the story beats.

Hey, I really like this mod. but I have two questions:

-Is it normal, that the Quest for obtaining the source magic is missing (mordus, ryker etc.)?
-I play Lohse and my Friend is playing The red Prince but our character quests are missing as well.

Thank you very much for help.

Created a new Profile and seems to be working as intended for me. Started with 20k gold. No missing companions. One issue is I can't enter the secret room wither the 2 creatures are in.

Isnt working unfortunately. Tried making a number of different characters. Tried making a new profile and removing all other mods and I keep starting on the ship and even after passing the ship I still start at fort joy.

Not working, keeps saying that my addons are messing with the story so it is putting me into the main story and ignoring the addon entirely, leaving me on those accursed beaches.
