    [IMGL]http://www.sorcerers.net/images/news/bg/bg2.jpg[/IMGL]Montresor, our resident walkthrough scribe, has penned a detailed review of the popular Expanded Thief Stronghold mod for Baldur's Gate 2. The mod gets a good score and here's a snip from the conclusion:

    The mod adds a considerable amount of content to what used to be a rather bland stronghold. You get two new challenging stronghold quests and running the thieves' guild profitably becomes a lot harder unless you learn to break your thieves out of prison rather than paying their way out. The thief stronghold becomes less like running a business as you get to engage actively in a bit of thuggery.

    Also, the mod makes the game much harder for a thief. Your reputation takes a blow during the battle in the barracks, making it more difficult for you to maintain a decent reputation. But then one could easily argue that a thief ought to have a poor reputation. This is especially problematic for a thief of good alignment, in which case you could also argue that a good-aligned thief shouldn't accept the stronghold and run a pack of thieves who smuggle dangerous goods, burgle people's homes and lift purses in the slums.​

    To read the whole review, head over to the thread our Mod Reviews forum.
