This mod adds challenging battles and opponents to existing campaign areas and existing quests. It supplements existing game content.

The BuTcHeRy mod (from DrAzTiK) has been updated to v5.0.0 and is now available with macOS and Linux support.

Version 5.0.0 is ToB, BGT, BG2:EE and EET compatible, provides English (by Gwendolyne and Lauriel) and Russian (by yota13) translations, and comes with many new components.

The genesis of this mod was to add a challenging and fun fight in Firkraag's hideout. Since then, it has grown considerably and now aims to :

  • Allow players to achieve 'epic' fights in large rooms or spaces because it is really boring and frustrating to fight in a corridor, especially in BG2.
  • Bring BG2 as close as possible to a Dungeon crawler game.
  • Difficulty level scaling: difficulty will be adjusted according to the game difficulty level, which can be set in the Gameplay subsection of the Options menu.
  • Spice up many battles by turning them into 'butchery fights', with a few spawns and respawns.
  • Make a few non-spellcaster creatures a bit more challenging (while non cheated) using kit abilities, having proficiencies in weapons, etc.
  • Have challenging and charismatic bosses (Tazok, DigDag, Sarevok).
  • Keep 100% content of the original game. I add a few things, but I don't remove a single one.
  • Add some fun dialogues and cutscenes.
  • No big loots or new magical items.
  • Have 100% compatibility and optimization with Sword Coast Stratagems and Item Revisions (especially with its potions revisions component).
