    I need. I am in the beginning of my plan to build in-game tutorials using conversationalists. These will lists all the general info and tips for players for each of the skill sets, crafts, dungeons, etc...

    I have found myself wishing for a different kind of conversationalist. I would like to see a statue of a figure that can be somehow activated to summon the ghost of that figure. I picture walking up to a Socrates statue and saying, "yeah, but why", and engaging in discussion with Socrates himself.

    I need 9 or 10 of these. They should look like masters of their field, whether the "field" be war or philosophy or medicine or teaching or....

    Please let me know if:
    A. There is any chance for this (I may reorganize my project nd wait if it is)
    B. If you need any further details to clarify.

    Tahnks,

    Your pal,

    BT!

    Greetings Bridge Troll
    If the DEVs are too busy to create the Curators of Knowledge for you would it help if all or select conversationalists could ware armor and weapons? Then you could have each one as an Older Wise Expert and have them appropriately equipped. Maybe the area around the Expert could also be deco'ed with appropriate items. A curved wall or block section with Armor, Weapons, Potions, Staffs, or food to help distinguish their knowledge.

    Sounds like a very cool idea to have an interactive source of all the skill sets for Avatars to use. A very long and complex coding also. Good luck.

    Well, originally I was going to ask that we be able to dress the avatar and then apply a "statue shader" to it for the statue, and a "ghost shader" to it for the ghost, but I opted to simplify.

    Even more simplification if it means getting it or not - I think a bust would be acceptable for statue form...

    Was wondering it would be possible to turn a mannequin into a conversationalist. Or have a static non moving deco item with conversationalist capabilitiy.

    Great idea BT!
    If you need someone to flesh out the ranged combat explanations, you can count on me!

    Tahnks,
