First draft. Less to talk about here. PC gets stronghold. Aran genially asks about it. Complications ensue.

 

1. multi-stronghold folks vs re-classing Aran vs. stock responses.

2. easter egg for having all strongholds.

3. time. This sample took hours to create and runs three lines [A] > [PC] > [A] in-game.

 

note to self - look up triggers for thieves guild and recheck vs Blucher's and aVENGER (RR)'s expanded guild content, for .bcs operation.

 

note to self - steal berelinde's .bcs blocks for Gavin that tip off stronghold ownership, modify to Aran's dv and the given LOCALS values placed here, and claim as own brilliant idea thus winning fame, worldwide acclaim, and the millions of dollars such an act will bring my way.

 

note to self - must not play clip of Morodin singing or go into Research Lab on Normandy 2. Must not play ME2. Too many similarities. Must evaluate code, test weidu functionality, choose pathways for progression of ToB talks... too much to do. Too little time. Salarian brain equipped for tasks, but need Krogon stamina to complete. Must talk to Shepherd about creating new

 

[PARAGON ACTION HERE]

 

Must post and shut down computer.

edit: ok, i have a favorite. i don't usually, but this time, I do.

3. time. This sample took hours to create and runs three lines [A] > [PC] > [A] in-game.
You'd be amazed how many people don't know that.

Then it means the low speed I can produce content at is not due to me being a feebleminded moron. Thank you guys, that's a great relief :)

 

Or maybe that's just a lack of practice. Back then I was slow to code in Weidu as well, whereas now it's like just typing a post.

Just a minor quibble here.

+ ~Class("c-aran",MAGE_ALL)~ + ~[PC] I am not sure you would understand, all wrapped up in your books and scribing. It takes coin to keep you in quills, parchment, and spell components.~ DO ~SetGlobal("c-aranps","LOCALS",2)

This pc response seems odd for the Radiant Heart stronghold.

RealSetGlobalTimer("c-aranstrong","GLOBAL",180)~ + a1487

+ ~Class("c-aran",CLERIC_ALL)~ + ~[PC] Say a prayer or two for me. I want this as a base of operations, but I know that helping the Order is a great deal of work and returns very little coin.~ DO ~SetGlobal("c-aranps","LOCALS",2)

The lack of income has been addressed with the cleric response, but not with the mage one.

 

= ~[ARAN] That senchal at th' Keep be whinin' about taxes not addin' up, th' Thieves Guild dues we paid twice on account o' "clerical error", an' somehow those bloody apprentices wanted spell components similar to the temple's order so th' order components got cross-shipped. Don't rightly know how more messed up this can get.~

"seneschal"
