About this mod

For whatever reason, you have spent the last 10 years of your life as a Goat. For better or for worse, mysterious circumstances have rendered you back to your original race.

Custom Background: Was a Goat for 10 Years

Note: This is the outdated version of this mod, remaining here for archival purposes. Go here to download the version compatible with the Full Release.
In 2018, reddit user u/Metabot submitted a delightful homebrew Background to r/UnearthedArcana: "Was a Goat for 10 Years." With their permission, I've ported the background to Baldur's Gate 3. The full effect of the mod isn't quite possible yet. The original Homebrew advises having horns and rectangular irises, both of which seem likely candidates for separate mods later on down the line.

A Goat. For 10 Years. Having been a Goat for so long, you know your way around animals, and have become quite athletic, granting you proficiency in Animal Handling and Athletics. You also gain Surefooted, granting you immunity to muddy and difficult terrain. Your irises are rectangular, granting you a small amount of Darkvision(6 meters), and you've taken a liking to bushy beards.

I recommend using Candor mod manager to install, as the process is highly simplified. However, you'll want to be sure you're using it to install any other mods you're using as well. Installation via Vortex is also supported
