Larian Studios provided plenty of amazing features for Baldur’s Gate 3, but the mod community has also been creating dedicated content to connect Faerun with other fan-favorite franchises.

Baldur’s Gate 3 lets players customize their adventure with an insane amount of options, allowing them to choose from their classes to their backgrounds. The mod community has also introduced a hefty amount of content to personalize Larian Studios’ RPG, but the latest feature has amazed fans who love the opportunity of mixing Star Wars with a Dungeons & Dragons setting.

The user Palmaman33 released in Nexus Mod a set of downloadable content that gives players the chance to play with Lightsabers. The mod introduced 5 color variants (Red, Green, Purple, and Yellow) and 5 types of rarity (Legendary, Very Rare, Rare, Uncommon, and Common).

As spotted first by GamerRant, content creator Palmaman33 was also behind a plethora of gun mods for Baldur’s Gate 3. These included a Flintlock Musket, M1911 pistol, Colt Python revolver, AKM Assault Rifle, Barrett M82 sniper rifle, and an RPG-7.

The modder also uploaded a customization option that adds sunglasses and a cigar to characters, gives players a set of Emerald Dice, and also a greatsword in the shape of a giant spoon.
