Cord of the Beresaad, v1.0
File under: Parity is love.
Poor Sten is the red-headed stepchild of Bioware companions. No real starting gear, no unique companion accessory item, only one specialization, and because of the area level scaling, I never acquire his only ‘personal’ item (Asala) until the game is nearly over.
In the interest of giving him something Qunari-ish, I usually pick up the Par Vollen Willstone amulet, but it’s annoying to have to pay for a companion trinket when all the others come equipped with one. *grumpy face*
With this mod, Sten will be equipped at recruitment with 'Cord of the Beresaad’, an amulet-slot accessory with modest stats and restricted to Sten; the description ('braided of many thin leather strands… otherwise unornamented’) was inspired by the ubiquitous neckseam concealer.
For users of NSIBystander’s Improved Follower Items, I’ve also included alternate versions of the amulet, with stats similar to that mod’s Low/Medium/High versions of the vanilla follower accessories.
