Alistair's Dark Ritual

If Alistair is 'in love' and in an active relationship with a female human, elven or dwarven warden and performs the Dark Ritual with Morrigan, this mod will replace the creepy vanilla candle scene with both pre- and post-ritual scenes between him and the Warden.

This scene is based on my interpretation of events and characters both pre- and post-ritual. In this mod, the Warden responds to Alistair post-ritual with love, concern and acceptance. If that is not the way you role-play the situation or not your interpretation of the events then please, DO NOT USE THE MOD.

==========
CRITERIA
==========

Alistair must, obviously, be persuaded to perform the Dark Ritual, must have a 'love' approval status, and be in an active relationship with a female human, elven or dwarven warden from any origin.


===============
INSTALLATION
===============

Use DAUpdater or another program that installs dazips.

Can be installed anytime before talking to Alistair about the Dark Ritual.


If using Zevran's Dialogue Fixes, ZDF, you can either

1. Download and place the Compatibility script into the toolsetexport folder of override, if you don't have a folder called 'toolsetexport' you can create one, OR
2. Remove the file named 'clipt_morrigan_ritual.ncs' from ZDF.


If using the manual version of Morrigan Restoration Patch, MRP, then either

1. Download and place the Compatibility script into the toolsetexport folder of override, if you don't have a folder called 'toolsetexport' you can create one, OR
2. Remove the file named 'clipt_morrigan_ritual.ncs' from MRP.

If using the dazip version of Morrigan Restoration Patch, MRP, then download and place the Compatibility script into your override folder.


If using the Magenta Emerald mod, remove the file named 'clipt_morrigan_ritual.ncs' from the mod.


===============
UNINSTALL
===============

Use a program that uninstalls dazips and, if applicable, delete script from toolsetexport folder in override or from override itself.


================
COMPATIBILITY
================

Uses the script 'clipt_morrigan_ritual.ncs', which is altered by ZDF and MRP. Please see installation instructions, above.

It is fully compatible with the following mods:

Improved Atmosphere by SpaceAlex
Improved Romance Scenes and Fixes - Alistair
Dark Ritual Deleted Scene by TheOneKnight
DahliaLynn's Sleep Untill Dawn
DahliaLynn's - Alistair's First Night Love Scene
DahliaLynn's Alistair Epilogues - The Royal Wedding

The mod will not work for a male warden even if mods are installed that allow a male warden to have a relationship with Alistair. The cutscenes will only play for a female human, elven or dwarven warden.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
=========================

Thank you to my beta testers: BevH, ladyluck278, luna1124, Storm 2006 and theskymoves. I have beta tested mods before but never understood how important good beta testers are, until now, and you all are the best! I was blessed that you were willing to try out my first mod, not knowing what you were getting into. All of your input, ideas, feedback, dedication and support during the testing process is so much appreciated.

Thank you to Sunjammer. You are my hero! You literally saved my mod from a problem that would have made it unreleaseable. You are a god!

Thank you to Karma for her brilliant scripting and solution to a tricky situation. I seriously never would have gotten the mod to work in game otherwise and it would have forever remained wasting away in my toolset.

And finally, thank you to the incomparable DahliaLynn, who was gracious enough to help me take my idea and make it into a reality. Without your guidance, generosity, input and support, I never would have been able to do this. Your creativity, knowledge and contributions have forever blessed this game we all love and the community we are all a part of. Maker smile upon you, my friend.
