Changelogs
This mod has been updated for 1.6 by vinillabean! Due to IRL stuff I am on a modding hiatus - I have enough time to answer comments and upload bugfixes or updates that other people give me, but not to update mods myself or add new features. While most of my mods should remain compatible with 1.6 there may be some issues I won't be able to address until I have time to mod again.

Important notice: the only "quest" this mod adds is a message asking you to bring Alecto a prismatic shard, any other quests are added by Aimon's amazing Distant Lands swamp mod which has built in compatibility with Alecto.

My take on Rasmodius's ex, the witch!

Alecto is many things. A grumpy wine aunt. A secret romantic. The "owner" of two crows. Going through a lot right now. Slightly cursed. She is best installed any time before you gain access to the Witch's Hut and can be interacted with as soon as you meet her, no magic ink quest required (just don't tell the wizard).

For guides to her events, gift tastes and schedule, see the articles tab!

Configuration Options:

  • FemaleWizard: set this to "true" if you have any of the mods that replace the wizard with a female version (eg Razolyn, Rasmodia).
  • LoadWitchHut: set this to "false" if you have any other mods which include events in the Witch's Hut (if you get an error message in SMAPI about multiple packs wanting to load "Data/Events/WitchHut" this is what is happening).

Compatibility:

  • Should be compatible with most other mods, including other Witch NPCs.
  • In-built compatibility re: pronouns for female wizard replacements, although Alecto will definitely imply her ex wife is older than she seems...
  • Will conflict with any mods that replace the witch sprite in the void egg random event.
  • Aimon's Distant Lands has built in compatibility with Alecto.
  • I've tried to reduce lore conflict as much as possible, although she will definitely conflict lore-wise with other versions of the witch (unless you imagine the wizard has a lot of angry ex-wives, I guess) and with Harvest Goddess as she won't realise Ras is "on holiday".
  • Reacts to events from several other custom NPC mods (eg Juna, Lavril, Lucikiel, Jean and Jorts).
  • Bonus events if East Scarp and/or NPC Wellwick are installed!
  • Has additional days in her schedule if East Scarp or Ridgeside Village are installed!
  • Her crows hang out with Jorts, Jean and Mister Ginger if they are all installed.

Future Plans:

  • Add more events when other mods are installed.
  • Add more dialogue when romanceable versions of the wizard are installed.
  • More crow content.
  • Option to have Alecto as a roommate with potential romance (but no marriage or babies - the wizard has put her off marriage for life and she is happily childfree, thank you very much).

Known Issues:

  • Alecto may get stuck on the railroad map if SVE is installed due to a patch of grass added outside her cave - if you scythe the grass away whenever it regrows she should be fine! If you would like a permanent solution please report the issue using the SVE compatibilty form :)

Thank you to SmolHooman for the crow sprites Alecto's crows are based on, and to the gang (y'all know who you are) especially Lani for teaching me some optimisation tricks!

Alecto is all set up with i18n tokens for ease of translations, if you want to translate her just let me know!
