This mod requires Norbyte's Script Extender[github.com] and OdinCore - Mod Services to use.

Cunning, deceptive, and visceral; an expert Scoundrel always gets their mark. This mod overhauls all existing Scoundrel skills, as well as adding plenty of new ones into the mix, to deliver a truly devastating Scoundrel skill tree.

"Never play fair..."

Consider supporting my efforts by tipping me with caffeine here:
Thank you, and I hope you enjoy this mod!

As stated above, this overhaul requires Norbyte's Script Extender[github.com] as well as OdinCore - Mod Services to use.

What is the Script Extender and why do I need it?
Norbyte's Script Extender is similar to how the Skyrim Script Extender (SKSE) works; it provides access to a lot of lower-level code for modders. As such, I've been able to create lots of new script-heavy mechanics for this mod.

Another excellent feature that the Script Extender provides is a HUGE improvement to load times when playing with lots of mods, cutting 10-minute load screens down by ~90%. Even if you aren't planning on using this overhaul, I'd recommend grabbing the extender for that feature alone!

How do I install it?
Check out my installation guide here. Alternatively, if you are using LaughingLeader's excellent Mod Manager[github.com], you can simply click the "Tools" option at the top of the window, and then click "Download & Install Osiris Extender". Easy peasy!

Version 1.0.5 (Read the Patch Notes here!)

Core Mechanics
Scoundrels are well-known for having a few tricks up their sleeve. The toolset provided by this overhaul will give you a plethora of tools to design and decimate with your own playstyle. Here are a couple of the core mechanics this overhaul leverages:
  • Combo
    • Generate Combo by hitting your Scoundrel attacks, stacking up to 3 times.
    • At Combo 3, you can activate the Deadly Flourish skill to expend your points and empower your next Scoundrel skill.
    • At Scoundrel 5+ you enter combat with Combo 1. At Scoundrel 10+ you instead enter combat with Combo 2.
  • Stealth Damage Multipliers
    • Some of the more visceral Scoundrel skills benefit from Stealth Damage Multipliers, increasing their damage if you are either Invisible or Sneaking.
    • Demonstrate your superiority and outplay your foes from the shadows.

The new skills and mechanics introduced in this overhaul are designed to feel unique and engaging. The AI utilises a large number of the new skills but does not utilise the Combo mechanic.

As a comprehensive overhaul, this mod also reworks a lot of the base game Scoundrel spells, and I have compiled these changes into a doc:

Lina the Deft is a tricksy thief, and she is able to sell the party skillbooks (which she has rather questionably obtained). Lina may be found throughout the game in various locations:
  • Fort Joy:
    • Opposite the campfire west of the Fort's initial entrance.
    • On a small shore, behind the tent next to the altar in Armadia's Sanctuary.
  • Reaper's Coast:
    • Aboard the Lady Vengeance. She is in the crow's nest near the head of the ship.
    • Atop the gate at the entrance to Driftwood Square.
  • Nameless Isle: On the landing shore as you arrive.
  • Arx: In the West section of the market square, behind the Dwarven blacksmiths and next to a stone bench.

Basegame Scoundrel vendors also stock the new skills, and the new vendors can be toggled on/off whenever you like using the Odinomicon mod settings menu from OdinCore.

I read your mod and I see an ability named Play_Of_The_Game, it seems to be a way to give player instant Combo Points (2 CP). I never see its skillbook in game, could it be because it is overpowered?

would love to have that Lina The Deft armor set. looks so cool

Do all players need to have this installed for one to use it?

if you're still looking to balance your mods, I would strongly suggest to nerf the "Misdirection" skill to expire at the start of the second turn, instead at the end. Also, the clone should only use basic attacks, no skills. In this state, you can summon it at the start of combat and literaly have 2 rounds without any enemy attacking you, while the clone does insane amounts of damage
eeby deeby do, i love u :) Feb 9 @ 6:17pm 
Hey Odin! The mod works great though I've got a single, probs not terribly important, question:

Is there a way to get armor which Lina, The Deft, uses? I've looked thru all of the relevant things you'e posted in regards to this particular mod but couldn't find a thing.

Either way, amazing work on all of your mods! :toriel:

My game makes absolutely no references to the combo portion of this mod, the effects never get applied and none of the skills say they create a combo multiplier

How many ranged attacks are included in this overhaul? One of the worst things about this game, from a melee character's point of view, is that your environment is usually on fire, or filled with poisonous gas, and it's not immersive to go into a situation like that because a clever scoundrel would never do it! :D

First of all, great mod i really like it.
2nd i think "outmaneuver" isnt working as intended, at least not for me.

I play a rough with 2 Knifes and once i use outmaneuver and the enemy acutally attacks me with a dodgeable attack of anykind i simply dodge but do not counter attack.
Never have i seen one counter attack to be precise, is there a condition that im not seeing like not having my own dodge of is it only working onehanded? :(

does not display descriptions of additional effects in other languages ​​than English, the effects work but they are not visible, how to fix this?

Does Odin still mod for this game? I would love to see his take on Polymorph :)
