Caius Romance

This mod adds an extra topic “–something more” filtered to Caius Cosades. The new topic is filtered through specific journal entries, so that the topic appears in-game only at certain points in the story. The entries build up a relationship between Caius and the player-character, culminating in his recall to the Imperial City. Additional to the new dialogue, Caius’s house has been extended downwards via a semi-concealed trap door. The new area has a kitchen, bathroom, and extended bedroom and training area, as well as plenty of storage.

4. What It Does

I got the idea while reading Plangkye’s WIP thread for a Crassius Curio mod that some people might actually like a mod that features Caius Cosades – the character with whom you spend the most time in the game. (Whether or not Caius appears attractive towards you/your character no doubt depends on which mods you have plugged in and your own personal preferences.)

This mod adds an extra topic “–something more” filtered to Caius Cosades. The topic is introduced via a StartScript, which is a feature introduced with Tribunal, hence requirement for one of the two expansions. It may be possible to run the mod without either expansion, by using the console to run the script.

The new topic is filtered through specific journal entries, so that the topic appears in-game only at certain points in the story. The entries build up a relationship between Caius and the player-character, culminating in his recall to the Imperial City.

The dialogue is influenced by the way the “romance subplot” was handled in Mass Effect, and also includes a couple of brief, tasteful, text/blackout sex scenes.

It is unlikely that the mod will conflict with any others, because the new dialogue is confined to the new topic.

Additional to the new dialogue, Caius’s house has been extended downwards via a semi-concealed trap door. He will give you a key at a certain point in the story. The new area has a kitchen, bathroom, and extended bedroom and training area, as well as plenty of storage. It just seemed fitting for a spymaster to have a house that was more suitable for his requirements as well as having hidden areas.

Notes: It may be possible to play without either expansion, though you will encounter the missing object error, plus the topic will not be added on startup. Use the ` key to open the console and type

addtopic “– something more”

to introduce the topic, then ` again to close it.

The journal entries checked are:
