Seriously, This Is My Laughing Face!

There's not too much I can say this week, as it has mostly been about writing conversations. As every module builder will tell you, there isn't a lot you can talk about, not without giving anything away anyway. During such times in the past, I have posted about the difficulties I have with writing them due to trying to cater for a MP environment, etc.

This time around in my writings, I learned that not all creatures have all the various "conversation animations" available to them. (E.g. It's not  possible to make a goblin laugh.) Therefore, including such an animation in a conversation to make the creature appear more "alive" is not possible. Instead, one is left with a deadpan faced creature and some descriptive text about what it is they are "doing" as well as "saying". While not a major problem, it was a bit of a disappointment to learn this was the case. On the bright side, it did explain why my earlier attempts to include animations in conversations with some creatures would often fail.

Anyway, I thought I would just post a few screenshots this week and invite people to ask questions about the campaign ... or anything really. Is there anything you want to discuss in this post or previous ones? So, without further banter, here are a few screen shots for the week ...
