Next release

  • A new speaker for the dead esp has been dropped this week and allows for more testing (please test).
  • Gnomey dropped a Roa Dyr dialogue.esp right before the meeting and will work on it for a while.

Location-based dialogue

Why assembled a Google sheet with a list of topics that need to be implemented: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1dtrZBpzNtcCSpo9VKuDP9084ZpdH004E5G8BD4hk5R4/edit#gid=474248552 

This thread is also always relevant: https://www.tamriel-rebuilt.org/forum/little-topics-examined

Location-based dialogue claims should only include entries filtered to the relevant cells or to NPCs in the relevant cells. This includes dialogue for scouts in the claim location about nearby locations. 

All other dialogue should be handled via a generic dialogue claim, which could be the same as the wilderness dialogue claim or could be separate. This includes class-filtered dialogue, stuff like Morrowind Lore, current events, etc. Quest dialogue (which would include most faction dialogue) should naturally be handled in separate quest claims.

For a concrete example, the Teyn and Fort Ancylis dialogue claim should contain the following topics:
 

From Vanilla:

  • [+] Greetings 7 (unique non-quest greetings)
  • Greetings 9 (location specific generic greetings)
  • Background (sparingly for important NPCs)
  • latest rumors
  • little advice
  • little secret
  • [-] Solstheim
  • [-] Morrowind lore
  • my trade (sparingly for important NPCs)
  • Services
  • someone in particular
  • specific place

From Tamriel Rebuilt:

  • local area
  • local economy

Area Specific:

  • Greetings 6 (Legion greetings)
  • Location topic (“Teyn” or “Fort Ancylis” for instance)
  • Generic entry for the location itself
  • [-] Andothren (this would be scout or savant dialogue)
  • [-] Ascadian Bluffs (this would be scout or savant dialogue)
  • [-] Roth-Roryn (this would be scout or savant dialogue)

[-] Topics are currently part of that claim but need to be removed.

[+] Topics are currently not part of that claim but need to be added.

For a generic location, each of those topics will only really need one or two lines of dialogue, though NPCers will probably pad that out with unique dialogue.

Thirr Valley Claims

Much claim works were had.
