Never have to fight Merrill’s clan. Ever.

A quick mod to allow for any response to be chosen at the end of Merrill’s Act 3 quest without having to fight her clan. Please note that while in the original file, the final line about never bringing Merrill back or the Dalish will kill her did fire off, yet it no longer seems to - I’m not sure if it’ll fire off for you or not. I can see about fixing it if anyone really wants, but I don’t think anyone’s that invested in it.

Installation instructions:

Unzip “Never Hostile Dalish v1.zip” into your Override folder, ideally in a subfolder as it contains multiple files. If you do not know where your “Override” folder is, it is found under the same Dragon Age 2 folder that stores your user data (this is the same Dragon Age 2 folder where any screenshots taken in-game will be stored). This will usually be found in your “My Documents” or “Documents” folder, in the “Bioware” folder, and is NOT the one found under your Program Files. This should  be the case for both Macs and PCs, but if you have wound up with an alternate filepath, try to find your in-game screencaps folder and navigate up to the “Dragon Age 2” folder. Once you are in this folder, go into “packages”, then “core”. There should already be a folder named “override” in here; if there is none, and are sure you are in the right location, you may create one. Once in the “override” folder, you can just paste the files there, but I suggest making a new folder within “override” for easier tracking.

Happy modding!

HUZZAH!

Welcome to the DAI Tattoo and Blood Smear Import (+ Freckles) mod!

If you don’t care about any of the mod preamble and just want to know how to install it, you can skip down to the “installation” section; otherwise, read on! This mod contains two main areas of function, broken down as follows:

  1. Tattoos: This mod has imported all tattoos available to humans (and thus to your Hawke) in DAI. They work just like the regular tattoos from DA2, with all of the same color options, and will be compatible with any mods to grant additional tattoo colors or to add other custom tattoos. This is done for anyone who, like me, grew more attached to their Hawke’s DAI tattoos than to the one they chose in DA2 and/or was bothered by the tattoo inconsistency between the games. While I would love to do a reverse version of this and import the DA2 tattoos into DAI as well, I currently have no experience with the DAI modding frameworks beyond what was required to export these tattoos, and cannot do it at this time. If anyone does come up with a mod to import the DA2 tattoos into DAI, I will gladly link it here!
  2. Complexions: This mod has created 14 new complexions for your Hawke to use. This mod is meant to give you the ability to use all of the blood smear options offered by DAI. When DAI offered the blood smear options for custom Hawkes in DAI, I grew very attached to them, as I was able to give my Hawke both the iconic nose streak and a tattoo. Because DA2 doesn’t have a separate blood smear slider and there’s no way that I know of to add one, I created them as complexions so that they could be mixed and matched with the tattoos. In addition, as part of this mod, I created two freckle options - one for a smattering of freckles only over the nose, and another for full-face freckles. In addition to basic faces with these freckle options, I have replicated these freckle options for all blood smears, meaning it is now possible to give your Hawke a blood smear, freckles and a tattoo all at once!

A note regarding complexion textures: Due to the way I had to implement the blood smear options, all of the blood smear and/or freckle complexions are made using the second complexion of the base complexion slider (as that seemed like a neutral option that would suit all Hawkes.) I could fairly easily make additional complexions with the blood smear and freckle options to correspond to any of the other basic complexions; however, if I were to offer every single option for every single complexion, I would have to make at least 75 complexions, which could be made but would likely crash the complexion slider. As a result, if you are very attached to adding freckles and/or a blood smear to another complexion base for your Hawke, you can absolutely ask and I’ll probably upload it for you, but I will not be providing all possibilities unless they are specifically asked for. Similarly, this mod only offers the DAI-style blood smears; if you are particularly attached to using the DA2 style blood smear, there are other mods to do so (I recommend picking up the “Textures for CC” or “Textures for CC - Eyebrow Add-on” files offered here: http://www.nexusmods.com/dragonage2/mods/3930/?), but to the extent of my knowledge none of them add freckles, so if you are very, very attached to the DA2 style blood smear with freckles, shoot me the complexion you want as a base and the freckle type and I’ll probably upload that for you.

A note regarding permissions: I give blanket permission to extract and modify these files and use them in other mods or model exports as long as you credit me. You may also use them in any graphics or similar edits freely; I don’t require credit for these (and probably couldn’t really stop you even if I wanted?) but it’d probably be good to mention it so that other people can pick up the mod if they want. (Dropping a note letting me know you’re using it would feed my vanity nicely as well, but isn’t mandatory.)

Recommended Complementary Mods:

Natural Skin (gives you way more skin tones, something sorely needed with the rather lacking range in vanilla DA2):http://www.nexusmods.com/dragonage2/mods/2620/?

DA2-style Nose Smear for all Hawkes: http://www.nexusmods.com/dragonage2/mods/3930/? (You’re looking for the “Textures for CC” or “Textures for CC - Eyebrow Add-on” files. You may be interested in the companion face meshes, too, but beware if you have custom Hawke siblings, as I believe it can override their skin tone.)

INSTALLATION:

If you are using the Nexus Mod Manager: click that nifty “Install with manager” button.

If you do not already have any other mods that modify your character creator (meaning you do not already have a chargenmorphcfg.xml file in your “Override” folder), you may simply unzip this mod and copy and paste its files into your “Override” folder.

  • IMPORTANT: If you do not know where your “Override” folder is, it is found under the same Dragon Age 2 folder that stores your user data (this is the same Dragon Age 2 folder where any screenshots taken in-game will be stored). This will usually be found in your “My Documents” or “Documents” folder, in the “Bioware” folder, and is NOT the one found under your Program Files. This should  be the case for both Macs and PCs, but if you have wound up with an alternate filepath, try to find your in-game screencaps folder and navigate up to the “Dragon Age 2” folder. Once you are in this folder, go into “packages”, then “core”. There should already be a folder named “override” in here; if there is none, and are sure you are in the right location, you may create one. Once in the “override” folder, you can just paste the files there.

If you already have another mod that modifies your character creator: First, place the “DAI CC Imports.erf” file into your Override folder. Then find the “chargenmorphcfg.xml” file that is already in there (it may be within a nested folder; poke around). Once you have found it, you have two options:

1. You may use this tool - http://www.nexusmods.com/dragonage/mods/971/? - to merge your existing chargenmorphcfg.xml with the one provided with this mod.
2. You may open your existing chargenmorphcfg.xml file in Notepad or Notepad++ and follow these steps:

a.) Find the line that reads “</tattoos>”. On the line above it, paste the following code:

<!– DAI Tattoos –>

<resource name=“ImportedTats\dai_tat_01_0t”/>

<resource name=“ImportedTats\dai_tat_02_0t”/>

(The “<!– DAI Tattoos –>” is not actually necessary, but will make it easier to keep track of what is what.)

b.) Find the line that reads “</skins>”. Above it, paste the following code:

<!– DAI Blood Smears and Freckles –>

<!– No Smears, Only Freckles –>

<resource name=“BloodSmearComplexions\mt_hed_kidan0smrnsfrckl_0d”/>

<resource name=“BloodSmearComplexions\mt_hed_kidan0smrfullfcfrckl_0d”/>

<!– Nose Smear (Iconic) –>

<resource name=“BloodSmearComplexions\mt_hed_kidanssmrpln_0d”/>

<resource name=“BloodSmearComplexions\mt_hed_kidanosesmrnosefrckl_0d”/>

<resource name=“BloodSmearComplexions\mt_hed_kidanosesmrfullfrckl_0d”/>

<!– Eye Side Smear –>

<resource name=“BloodSmearComplexions\mt_hed_kidaeyesidesmrpln_0d”/>

<resource name=“BloodSmearComplexions\mt_hed_kidaeyesidesmrnosefrckl_0d”/>

<resource name=“BloodSmearComplexions\mt_hed_kidaeyesidesmrfullfrckl_0d”/>

<!– Not-Qunari Smear (the one that looks kinda like the Qunari warpaint but is for humans) –>

<resource name=“BloodSmearComplexions\mt_hed_kidantqnrismrpln_0d”/>

<resource name=“BloodSmearComplexions\mt_hed_kidantqnrismrnosefrckl_0d”/>

<resource name=“BloodSmearComplexions\mt_hed_kidantqnrismrfullfrckl_0d”/>

<!– Raccoon Smear (Look it was this or “Bucky Smear”.)–>

<resource name=“BloodSmearComplexions\mt_hed_kidarccnsmrpln_0d”/>

<resource name=“BloodSmearComplexions\mt_hed_kidarccnsmrnosefrckl_0d”/>

<resource name=“BloodSmearComplexions\mt_hed_kidarccnsmrfullfrckl_0d”/>

(I do not apologize for my comments.)

c.) Save the file. You should be all set!

As with all of my other mods, please feel free to contact me if you notice any issues or have any problems with installation, as well as if you have another requested complexion.

Happy DA2-ing!

Hello, and welcome to the first version of the Sleeping Cat for Anders mod!

Installation:

Place “Sleeping Cat for Anders.erf” into your Override folder. If you do not know where your “Override” folder is, it is found under the same Dragon Age 2 folder that stores your user data (this is the same Dragon Age 2 folder where any screenshots taken in-game will be stored). This will usually be found in your “My Documents” or “Documents” folder, in the “Bioware” folder, and is NOT the one found under your Program Files. This should  be the case for both Macs and PCs, but if you have wound up with an alternate filepath, try to find your in-game screencaps folder and navigate up to the “Dragon Age 2” folder. Once you are in this folder, go into “packages”, then “core”. There should already be a folder named “override” in here; if there is none, and are sure you are in the right location, you may create one. Once in the “override” folder, you can just paste the files there. If you are upgrading from the v 1 version, you MUST delete the previous version of this mod; however, you do not have to run the uninstaller, as this only replaces the core files used in the mod.

Uninstallation:

Delete the file. I’ll be honest - I’m not 100% sure how well this will behave if deleted when you have a save where Pounce II here was loaded. It seems like it’s mostly fine, but, uh, please do exercise caution?

Features:

This mod adds a basic sleeping cat for Anders in one of two locations. If romanced, the cat will appear asleep by the fire in Hawke’s and Anders’ shared bedroom; if unromanced, the cat will appear asleep on the desk in Anders’ Clinic. This cat will not appear until either after the “Putting out milk” conversation post-Dissent in Act 2 has been completed or until Act 3 if that conversation is not done.

Agenda for Subsequent Release:

I’d really like to see about getting some actual animations for this cat, even if it’s just breathing and occasional stretching, but honestly that’s well above my paygrade right now. Still, people responded positively to the suggestion of a new kitty for Anders, so I wanted to add in at least a little thing like this.

Notes:

I also have uploaded the source .nss file used for this in case anyone would like to reference it.

Permissions:

If you can make this work better, go for it, just as long as you give me credit!

Suggested supplemental mods:

  • Anders Romance Dialogue Overhaul:  Another mod of mine that offers a variety of changes to the Anders romance, including a final kiss in the Gallows for the Friendship route, restored dialogue plot flags, a Karl conversation for female Hawkes, and a selection of additional optional changes to balance out some of the stranger gendering between the m!Hawke and f!Hawke romance routes.
  • Anders Automatic Romance Outfits: Another (DirectX9 compatible only at this time, sorry) mod of mine that offers automatic romance outfit changes for Anders + Estate move-in functionality in Act 2.

If you experience any issues or have any questions about how to install this mod, please let me know and I will get to them ASAP!

Happy DA2ing!

Hello, and welcome to the second version of the Anders romance outfit swap mod!

Compatability and Variations: Currently, the main version of this mod will override both Anders’ face/hair models and his body. This will not affect the basic non-romanced versions of his appearance, but will change him to have the new versions upon romance confirmation and in any romanced saves. This is not compatible with any custom face morphs, including the high resolution face retexture, but if you have one that you would like to see made available here, please let me know and I will provide a compatible version where permissions allow.

There are additionally two variations of an earlier edition of this mod, one that includes a custom Anders hairstyle and one that does not. If you are using a custom Anders headmorph or hairstyle (including the Anders Awakening earring mod), you should use the “Anders Automatic Romance Armor - Custom Morph Compatible v1” file - if you wish to use the hair tie version provided (more information below), you should use the “Anders Automatic Romance Outfits - V1” version. This mod does NOT affect the basic versions of Anders’ outfits, meaning that any mods you have that alter those will remain in place, but once the romance is confirmed these outfits will replace any custom Anders armor mods you may have. This mod is also incompatible with any “equip your followers” style mods. Please note that if you wish to switch from the basic version to the one compatible with outside custom Anders face/hair morphs you must run the uninstaller first or Anders’ head will disappear.

Installation: Place “Anders Romance Outfit Change - v 2.erf” into your Override folder. If you do not know where your “Override” folder is, it is found under the same Dragon Age 2 folder that stores your user data (this is the same Dragon Age 2 folder where any screenshots taken in-game will be stored). This will usually be found in your “My Documents” or “Documents” folder, in the “Bioware” folder, and is NOT the one found under your Program Files. This should  be the case for both Macs and PCs, but if you have wound up with an alternate filepath, try to find your in-game screencaps folder and navigate up to the “Dragon Age 2” folder. Once you are in this folder, go into “packages”, then “core”. There should already be a folder named “override” in here; if there is none, and are sure you are in the right location, you may create one. Once in the “override” folder, you can just paste the files there. If you are upgrading from the previous version, you may simply delete “Anders Romance Outfit Change - v 2.erf” and paste in “"Anders Romance Outfit Change - v 2.erf” without running the uninstaller.

Uninstallation: !!IMPORTANT!! The edits made by this mod will be stored into your save file. If you wish to remove this mod at any point, you MUST uninstall it properly, or you may face issues with Anders’ head and armor disappearin. To uninstall, first delete “Anders Romance Outfit Change - v 2.erf” from your Override folder. After that, unzip the uninstallation file included with this mod and place it into your Override file, then launch your game. Like the main file, the uninstaller will run on every area load; it may be safely removed if you have no remaining saves where Anders is using his romance outfit.

Features:
This mod adds two romance outfits for Anders - one a version of his first armor, and the second a version of his dark armor. Both outfits within the newest version also contain added in gauntlets and removed bandages, as it seems a little odd to buy my video game husband a new outfit and still have it literally held together by bandages. In addition, this mod provides a third outfit for Anders in the form of a blue house robe similar to that worn by Hawkes while in the Estate, as it seemed a little strange to me that he’d just be standing around the house in full armor. If anyone requests, I will upload a version with only the two romance outfits. This mod additionally adds a red Hawke favor hair tie for Anders intended to stand in as a Hawke’s favor hair tie, as well as an earring.

Additionally, this mod will automatically load Anders into his appropriate spot in the Estate after he moves in during Act 2, rather than the game standard behavior wherein Anders only shows up in Act 3. This does not, to the extent of my knowledge, affect any cutscenes or cause any other inappropriate behavior, and has been tested with the post-All That Remains conversation to ensure functionality. This functionality will not trigger until the Estate is left and reloaded after the Anders romance confirmation.

There is a known issue with this mod where the party select screen will display Anders in his Estate outfit when leaving the Estate, but will properly reflect his outside apparel elsewhere. Though I would like to fix this eventually, it does not affect any other in-game elements, and is mostly a minor strangeness.

There is an additional known issue where exported meshes done using my Blender to DA2 mesh exportation alpha script will behave strangely with the DirectX11 renderer; I suggest using DirectX9, which is generally more stable.

Agenda for Subsequent Release:
This mod, as is, provides sufficient functionality for an Anders romance change outfit. If I can ever find a way to release a version that fixes the party picker issue or removes his staff while in the Estate, I will do so, but further functionality will not be included until the release of my full outfit change immersion mod, which will provide appearance changes across the timeskips, special Mark of the Assassin companion outfits, and will include romance outfit updates for all romanceable companions.

Notes:
I find two additional requests based off of this mod likely:
1. A Sebastian romance outfit change
2. Giving Merrill her own set of house robes.

Now that I have a preliminary mesh exportation utility for Blender, I am able to do both of these, and will release them as one within my full outfit change immersion mod; however, I do not intend to release them standalone at this time.

Permissions: I freely grant the ability to use this mod in other mods, as well as to override any of the Anders romance outfits with their own, as long as cedit is given and I am told about it (I do not require advance permission; I’d just like to know.) I welcome anyone who knows how to fix any of the issues listed for the agenda above. You are additionally at complete liberty to unpack the source .erf in order to access additional source files and to include the Anders romance outfit mods in any edits, renders, or other fan creations.

Suggested supplemental mods:
-Anders Romance Dialogue Overhaul: http://www.nexusmods.com/dragonage2/mods/4000 Another mod of mine that offers a variety of changes to the Anders romance, including a final kiss in the Gallows for the Friendship route, restored dialogue plot flags, a Karl conversation for female Hawkes, and a selection of additional optional changes to balance out some of the stranger gendering between the m!Hawke and f!Hawke romance routes.
-Hide Weapons: http://www.nexusmods.com/dragonage2/mods/2150/? A mod to hide weapons for characters, which should take care of the strangeness of Anders wearing his staff while in the Estate.
-DAI Tattoo and Blood Smear Imports (+ freckles): http://www.nexusmods.com/dragonage2/mods/4014/? Not necessary for this mod, but this is the source of the tattoo and nose smear for my Hawke that may be seen in these screencaps.

If you experience any issues or have any questions about how to install this mod, please let me know and I will get to them ASAP! Happy DA2-ing!

Hello, and welcome to the first version of the Merribela mutual romance outfit mod!

Installation:

Place “Merribela Outfits - v1 (non-immersive).erf” into your Override folder. If you do not know where your “Override” folder is, it is found under the same Dragon Age 2 folder that stores your user data (this is the same Dragon Age 2 folder where any screenshots taken in-game will be stored). This will usually be found in your “My Documents” or “Documents” folder, in the “Bioware” folder, and is NOT the one found under your Program Files. This should  be the case for both Macs and PCs, but if you have wound up with an alternate filepath, try to find your in-game screencaps folder and navigate up to the “Dragon Age 2” folder. Once you are in this folder, go into “packages”, then “core”. There should already be a folder named “override” in here; if there is none, and are sure you are in the right location, you may create one. Once in the “override” folder, you can just paste the files there.

Uninstallation:

Delete the file from your override folder.

Features:

This mod adds a basic mutual romance outfit for Merrill and Isabela, intending to imply that the two have struck up a romance when not romanced by Hawke. Automation functionality here was notably trickier than in my Anders automatic romance outfit, so at this time, these outfits unfortunately only replace the base outfits for Isabela and Merrill, with no accompanying banters or automatic changing.

The summary of the changes is as follows:

Merrill: Merrill’s “Water Lily” Isabelamanced outfit is a retexture of an outfit from the base game similar to her romance outfit but without the chainmail (which I tend to find looks… uh… really terrible with the rest of the outfit?). I have added a blue scarf corresponding to that of her base non-romanced outfit to this mesh and removed an absurd number of shoulderpads as well. In addition, Merrill has a flower crown, because eh, why not?

Isabela: Isabela’s Merrillmanced outfit has her dark corset with a green vine overlay (courtesy of free clipart available online) and a flower (intended to be a daisy) tucked behind one ear. I attempted to give her a variation with pants, but it really… did not work.

Agenda for Subsequent Release:

I intend to release a later version with some constructed Merrill/Isabela banters, automation for outfit changing, and ideally polyamory support for throwing Hawke in the mix (though this may be trickier if Hawke romances one but not the other, meaning that feature is provisional and may require yet further subsequent releases)/ This mod uses mesh exportation functionality and may have issues with the DirectX11 renderer; however, it is completely stable with the DirectX9 renderer.

Permissions:

You may under no circumstances whatsoever recolor this into a “fairskinned Isabela” variant armor, nor will I be creating one. You are, however, at liberty to use this in your own renders, and to repackage as part of another mod with compatible functionality with credit, including non-fair-skinned retexturing, etc. My one request is that if you do a pants variation for Isabela, you grant me permission to use it with credit in the subsequent immersion version release, because I just seriously cannot crack that on my end.

If you experience any issues or have any questions about how to install this mod, please let me know and I will get to them ASAP!

Happy DA2ing!

(This is a scheduled post meant for best viewing - I am not actually on rn)

So guess what’s heeere?

Hello, and welcome to the first version of the Anders romance outfit swap mod!

ETA: Compatability:

This mod contains two variations, one that adds a custom hair tie and is incompatible with custom headmorphs and one that does not contain the tie and is thus compatible with custom headmorphs. This means that if you wish to use this mod and a custom headmorph/hairstyle/complexion for Anders, you may do so - just be sure to grab the file labeled “custom morph compatible.

Installation: 

Place “Anders Romance Outfit Change - v 1.erf” into your Override folder. If you do not know where your “Override” folder is, it is found under the same Dragon Age 2 folder that stores your user data (this is the same Dragon Age 2 folder where any screenshots taken in-game will be stored). This will usually be found in your “My Documents” or “Documents” folder, in the “Bioware” folder, and is NOT the one found under your Program Files. This should  be the case for both Macs and PCs, but if you have wound up with an alternate filepath, try to find your in-game screencaps folder and navigate up to the “Dragon Age 2” folder. Once you are in this folder, go into “packages”, then “core”. There should already be a folder named “override” in here; if there is none, and are sure you are in the right location, you may create one. Once in the “override” folder, you can just paste the files there.

Uninstallation: 

!!IMPORTANT!! The edits made by this mod will be stored into your save file. If you wish to remove this mod at any point, you MUST uninstall it properly, or you may face issues with Anders’ head and armor disappearin. To uninstall, first delete “Anders Romance Outfit Change - v 1.erf” from your Override folder. After that, unzip the uninstallation file included with this mod and place it into your Override file, then launch your game. Like the main file, the uninstaller will run on every area load; it may be safely removed if you have no remaining saves where Anders is using his romance outfit.

Features: 

This mod adds two romance outfits for Anders - one a version of his first armor, and the second a version of his dark armor. In addition, this mod provides a third outfit for Anders in the form of a blue house robe similar to that worn by Hawkes while in the Estate, as it seemed a little strange to me that he’d just be standing around the house in full armor. If anyone requests, I will upload a version with only the two romance outfits. 

This mod additionally adds a visible hair tie for Anders intended to stand in as a Hawke’s favor hair tie; however, it should be noted that in this form, the hair tie is a dark brown, as I am unable to make a separate red hair tie without exportation of models to DA2. When I find a way to do so, this mod will be updated.

Additionally, this mod will automatically load Anders into his appropriate spot in the Estate after he moves in during Act 2, rather than the game standard behavior wherein Anders only shows up in Act 3. This does not, to the extent of my knowledge, affect any cutscenes or cause any other inappropriate behavior, and has been tested with the post-All That Remains conversation to ensure functionality. This functionality will not trigger until the Estate is left and reloaded after the Anders romance confirmation.

There is a known issue with this mod where the party select screen will display Anders in his basic outfit. Though I would like to fix this eventually, it does not affect any other in-game elements, and is mostly a minor strangeness.

Agenda for Subsequent Release:

This mod, as is, provides sufficient functionality for an Anders romance change outfit. As adding the additional features I want would delay the mod by weeks, I have elected to release this version as-is. In future releases, I would like to implement the following:

  • An automatic outfit change for Anders during the post-sex scene, which I am not currently able to do now.
  • Changing the Anders model in the party picker screen to show his romance outfit as well
  • Changing Anders’ hair tie to red.
  • Automatic hiding of Anders’ staff in the Estate (rather than simply using the full “hide weapons” mod.)

Notes:

I find two additional requests based off of this mod likely:

  1. A Sebastian romance outfit change
  2. Giving Merrill her own set of house robes.

Unfortunately, I am unable to do either on my end as of now due to a combination of inability to export meshes to DA2 and lack of documentation for the appropriate plot flags, but I have provided the source script for this mod with clear documentation should anyone wish to implement either on their end and upload it.

Permissions: 

I freely grant the ability to use this mod in other mods, as well as to override any of the Anders romance outfits with their own, as long as credit is given and I am told about it (I do not require advance permission; I’d just like to know.) I welcome anyone who knows how to fix any of the issues listed for the agenda above. You are additionally at complete liberty to unpack the source .erf in order to access additional source files and to include the Anders romance outfit mods in any edits, renders, or other fan creations.

Suggested supplemental mods:

Anders Romance Dialogue Overhaul: http://www.nexusmods.com/dragonage2/mods/4000 Another mod of mine that offers a variety of changes to the Anders romance, including a final kiss in the Gallows for the Friendship route, restored dialogue plot flags, a Karl conversation for female Hawkes, and a selection of additional optional changes to balance out some of the stranger gendering between the m!Hawke and f!Hawke romance routes.

Hide Weapons: http://www.nexusmods.com/dragonage2/mods/2150/? A mod to hide weapons for characters, which should take care of the strangeness of Anders wearing his staff while in the Estate.

DAI Tattoo and Blood Smear Imports (+ freckles): http://www.nexusmods.com/dragonage2/mods/4014/? Not necessary for this mod, but this is the source of the tattoo and nose smear for my Hawke that may be seen in these screencaps.

If you experience any issues or have any questions about how to install this mod, please let me know and I will get to them ASAP! 

Happy DA2-ing!
