The Tag Framework is an API designed to allow mods to leverage some of the behind-the-scenes tag functionality, primarily aimed at Race (REALLY) tags, Meta Race tags, and Exclusion Tags. Certain tags are forced onto new characters - particularly Baldurian and Illithid. When creating an Outlander character, or, as an example, a character of a custom race that would clearly never have been considered Baldurian, this becomes less than ideal. REALLY tags also don't apply for custom races, as they're set in the Osiris code. Tag Framework allows Mod Authors to register their tags with a JSON configuration file in order to mimic what Larian does behind-the-scenes for vanilla races.

If you like my work, please consider leaving a tip on Ko-fi! Neither my mods, nor support for them, will ever be gated behind or be based on payment or donation - this is just for if you feel like encouraging my coffee habit


Whether you want to contribute directly to the framework, report issues, or if you just want to make your mod's goals work, the Community Library Team welcomes you. The Issues tab on Github is a place for reporting issues, proposing new additions, and discussing the future of the project.


Our Wiki on GitHub has useful documentation on using the Tag Framework.


This mod works with Baldur's Gate 3 Mod Manager, and possibly Vortex and Manual Installations. BG3 Mod Managers is by far the simplest method, and as such is recommended one.
