    Ok I will evaluate. Maybe a "continue" or "next" button in dialog is appropriate

    As I said it's just an experiment to demonstrate the potential of lua. I will surely add more lore :)

    Of course it can be used ...and I used it in my quest too! Just go on in the quest :)

    Yes of course it's possible, it's a sequential story that can take different branches.

    I don't know yet, but I think I will add lua files.
    It's not currently so easy to use my script to create other stories, but as @Tirrag suggested I can work on a framework to create the script, maybe an external program who generates lua script, but the effort is quite heavy so I will do only if there is interest on it...another option is to work together (screenwriter and coder) ;)

    Thank you for your feedback @Nick , they are welcome!

    @Tristano Sforza i think all could be controlled via text data files if a framework was built to be dynamic based on the data in those files instead of hardcoding in the lua itself. then someone would just need to make the text data files in the right format. dialog, event locations (ie coords to trigger an event), events based on items gathered, etc. very cool project. would be happy to collaborate if there is interest. im pretty good with frameworky type stuff :)

    Ok @Tirrag but don't forget it's not server side but client side...so we have to crypt/decrypt text to avoid spoilers

    Apparently my luck is pretty bad....even my kids think so.

    Anyone knows how to find a tomb in brittany graveyard? A tomb crier or something.

    I give up... its too depressing and nauseating. Not sure why, maybe the movement and graphics doesn't agree with me.

    Seeing so many familiar names who no longer play..... on the bright side, I finally found my own tomb after so many years. :D

    erm....so, any clues to narrow down the area to search?

    Not necessary needed right? At most at the start of the game, get the player to choose from a set of avatar portraits. Store it in client and use it during dialogues.
