    I never touched it but I do know that it's an XML chain of statements, choices, and responses.

    NPC has different statements depending on quest or other requirements.
    You can give different responses which branch into other statements or actions like giving you a new quest or a reward.

    So since there are requirements, a scrawny 2-strength guy may never get the quest to move Bob's fridge into the upstairs living room.
    Technically it's all very polished. Just a looot of writing to make it all sound nice. =)

    You should look into Norbert Trees. They're a lot cheaper.

    This sounds very good.
    NPC quest dialog involving choices with different outcomes...

    Looking forward to trying it.

    I'm curious about the UI that goes along with it. At the risk of summoning a guppy, will we have a simplified system suitable for consoles or a large set of choices for the hardcore RPG'rs among us?

    I'm still hoping for VR zombies. Too bad I don't own any VR equipment. Implants, maybe?

    Yeah, you could totally do that.

    But your ingame character might starve to death before you get to the end. =)


    No comment on the UI. That's waaaaay out of my bailiwick.

    But that's part of the adventure! There's a clock ticking so don't tick off the clock, doc. Or something.

    Could said requirements also determine how you are allowed to go on the quest based on what weapons you have or clothing and armor you have? So a quest giver would detect you only have a club and bow and arrow, and the house you are suppose to clear of zombies becomes low level enemies and less XP. Or they notice you have a sniper and metal armor on, so the same quest is now filled with cops and dogs instead with more XP.

    hey Gazz - would it be possible to mod the system to grant only one player in a mp game a limited amount of creative menu options? think like a dungeon master is able to spawn critters / set traps in areas he controls (around land claim blocks maybe) and maybe fly / noclip to spy on the other players but not act directly upon them....
