NPC Bards
« on: February 21, 2006, 11:01:43 pm »
I was thinking today about NPC dialog and this idea struck me. The idea revolves around having bards playing a part in spreading news around the realm. The way this is done is in song fashion and the information that the bard passes are things like  game hints, small story line info and maybe player deeds provided a good way of recording them is available.

Basically how this would work is by giving the NPC bards a list of songs. To get the information from the bard the player would pay the bard for a song. Now each bard would be given a list of songs to sing so each bard could have different information they might give away. The bards could be either stationary in inns or wander areas.
