If you want to recruit Gorim, his shop won't be accessible anymore, it seems no one takes Gorim's place in Denerim Market

I have to say that (while I see many areas for improvement) he turned out a good character, with a not fully explored background but convincing. The risk of becoming an Alistair II is gracefully avoided, while he has the same inhibitions Alistair (and all trained templar) has. The dialogue, though, could use more option unrelated to romance, specially at higher approval, as with a non romanceable character he turns out quite plain.
He's still a good mix of Alistair's innocence and Leliana's romantic spirit (and fancy for epic stories). The second quest comes a bit out of the blue, but is good and fun to do. The romance, as I said, is well balanced considering it starts way before recruiting him, and goes smoothly even if he asked my char to bed by himself even AFTER I made them do the ummentionable asking him first (all the other romance companions don't take the initiative if you take it first, unles the first time they refused). And he's so sweet, even if I'm a man i felt sympathy for him.
(I admit it: I've a weakness for happy ending difficult love stories O:) )
By the way (just to not lose the habit ) I've noticed something and I want to ask: in the readme it is said that the mod modifies the file cir000ip_fade_pedistal.ncs/.nss thogh I didn't see fade pedestals during the quest that involves the fade, intead I've seen some portal. Is that you modify the access to the fade to make the mod compatible with Skip the Fade (and you can manually remove the file in karmas companions to make it work) or it is used elsewhere/I didn't see it?

Additionally, I haven't taken Gorim with me so I don't know for certain, but still.. If Gorim is taken on as a companion then he is gone from the Market District and if he is gone, that would likely make "Harsh Decisions" quest undoable (The last one in "K"/"D" conflict in 'Favours For Interested Parties' questline) since the quest requires the PC to give a "nod" to three contacts, one of them being Gorim.

I really like what you've done with Dragon's Peak and most especially with Aeonar. Very nice ! =)

When you accept the quest, talk to Gorim in your party. The usual dialogue option becomes available. I added that line into Gorim's dialogue for that reason.
Have you talked to Gorim about finding Kobaliman Thaig yet? I assume so. If you talked to him while he was in your party, you may have to head back to camp and then look at the map again. The Gwaren map pin is on the main world map in the south-east corner. There won't be a Captain Roshen; Gorim was just telling the Warden that Capt. Roshen failed to find the thaig.

Already found that one and hopefully fixed it this time. Apparently when I say destroy him, the script thinks I mean only sometimes. The fixed version will be in the next bug_fix file, though it probably won't do you any good as it won't retroactively destroy him.
Yeah, the Valeria mod has some interesting ideas but they aren't executed very well. The mod needs some serious work. Particularly annoying is the bad lighting in all of his areas and the battles that are so massive that the game CTDs. Also, does Valeria's face look familiar to you? I think I've seen her somewhere.

You've done good work with this area too, my fav actually. The spider nest in the deep roads reminds me of Baldur's Gate 2, is it intentional ? I only had a tiny issue with the dialog that comes with the signpost tracing gift : I had the dialog not with Gorim but with Cullen I checked, Gorim was not right behind Cullen, they were well away from each other.
PS : I get an error every time I try to endorse. I'll try again sometime soon.
Edit : file endorsed =)
