domains.2da defines the Domains available to the classes.2da classes that have the PickDomains column as 1.

NPCs and Domains

A quick note that NPCs cannot have domains setup in the toolset, but can have them GFF edited in validly (although this needs fully testing). They can have the feats given to them however.

They still get the bonus spell slots since this is coded into the class (at least for Clerics).

Functionality

This 2da file defines the options available to players. 3E rules are not wholly adhered too, instead:

  • Clerics get a bonus spell slot every level
    • That slot can be used for any spell unlike 3E when they can be only used for domain spells
    • Note: This departure makes the cleric generally a lot more powerful
  • The domains usually grant 2 to 5 spells, not a new spell per level
    • These new spells can be memorised as many times as the player wants
    • They can be of any level - you can for instance have Time Stop granted to a level 1 spell slot if you so wished
    • Note: This departure makes the cleric generally a lot more powerful if they have access to decent spells from their domain. Healing domain clerics can cast a lot of Heal spells per day!
  • All domains grant a feat
    • Active powers are granted as usable feats

The 3E domains included in the game can be read up on this wiki; most are distinctly different from the Bioware efforts.

Cut Content

There are 3 blanked out lines, which are the missing domains from 3E, Chaos, Law and Luck.

While Luck has a weird power and the spells listed for it might have been hard to use (although it at least got an icon!), the Law and Chaos domains appear to have been left out purely because the game hasn't got "Protection from Chaos" or similar spells, even though it is evident at one point they were fully planned.

Given that Evil and Good domains have not used Protection from Alignment as a spell, it's confusing though. They even get different effects (ie; turning different monsters) than the usual +1 caster level.

Below some of the remaining TLK files and other references are noted.

Luck Domain

Sphere of Chaos was removed from the game at some point. It would have been spells.2da line 170, and even has an icon - - but the spell description has been removed. Since it is a level 5 spell, and was present in Baldurs Gate and 2E, it probably would have been of a similar "random" effects in an area.

The "additional control" and "extra effects" presumably would have been a boost to the power of it (maybe removal of it affecting allies or similar).

Original power was a lot more tabletop applicable as well:

Granted Power: The character gains the power of good fortune, which is usable once per day. This extraordinary ability allows the character to reroll one roll that the character has just made. The character must take the result of the reroll, even if it’s worse than the original roll.
