Fun little snippets that can only be gathered if you do silly things in-game - the Easter egg is as old as computer gaming itself. One more recent addition to Easter eggs in games are conditional talks that can be triggered if you do something that is really a sideline in the game. In BG2, you can drink, and get intoxicated. The only thing this does is reduce your combat stats for a time, as a single drink or two is more than enough to get rumors at bars, is really not necessary, and as far as I know has no relation to anything at all in the gameplay. Several modders have played with this intoxication, though, using it for entertainment, and Aran seems to be a bar-hopping type of guy. Fortunately or unfortunately, I am not, preferring a quiet, reasonably aged scotch in the company of friends and/or family over wild shenannigans. (Yep. I actually used 'shennanigans' in a sentence. +10 points for SAT prep tests).

So, aside from the scripting of the trigger (CheckStat:intoxication), here is a first pass at a series of three 'drunk talks', and a call for ideas to add/take away. The goal is for short, humorous, interesting exchanges that would happen when Three Sheets To The Wind™, Blotto™, or just short of Praying to the Great Porcelain God®. We have plenty of other spots for deep introspection, fun flirts, or other silliness. Here, the player will need to get Aran drunk in order to trigger this set, so we can assume that the player is purposefully searching for a fun relief from the 400th playthrough of required quest cycle, and wants a bit of humor to spice up the game.

Hmm. With Ascension64's Talk-to-the-Charmed Exe Fix ©™®. Can we now do "fun evil talks-while-npc-is-charmed-by-the-enemy" ?

That would be an interesting species of easter egg. :suspect:

Fair warning. This is as brutal as my posts usually are.

In the first state, the PC can only attempt to pack Aran off to bed. What about the PC who's been matching him drink for drink and doesn't mind bit more fun? Or the PC who wants to taunt him a bit, maybe send him off to fetch another round or go talk to some girl across the bar and then laugh at him when he blows it? Or the PC who's embarrassed by Aran's lack of poise while drunk and tries to hush him up? Or who wants to see if drunk people really are 10 feet tall and bulletproof?

That's the problem with throwing out a kind of general opening line. It leaves too much leeway. I know you're trying to keep it light, and keep it focused, but you can include a couple more options and still get to the same point in the end.

Reading further into it, it looks like just about everything is pointing toward sex, either having it with a female PC or finding some with a male PC. So why not start there, instead, and drop the middle states?

Aran: ~Now, tha... that last round, it packed one hell o' a... hell o' a wallop. But I'm good. I shtill got it. An' I reckon I'm game for a bit o' easy lovin'. What about you?~
Female PC replies (note the third one is different because of the altered NPC line):
++ ~[PC] Is everything you say and do about sex?~ + c-aboutsex
++ ~[PC] Did you just proposition me?~ + c-proposition
++ ~[PC] With you? Now? Forget it.~ + c-million
++ ~[PC] You would never say that to me if you were not very, very drunk.~ + c-verydrunk
Male PC replies (reworded a bit to sound a bit more natural):
++ ~[PC] I am spoken for. But you go along and make some poor girl wish she'd stayed home tonight. Just don't get arrested.~ + c-spoilsport
++ ~[PC] I'm spoken for... but a fling might just be in order. She's been getting a bit too possessive and controlling, lately. We aren't married.~ + c-controlling
++ ~[PC] Come on, let's find some women with loose morals and low standards. That should take care of you, and then I will go find someone with class and refined tastes for myself.~ + c-bigtalk
++ ~[PC] Is everything you say and do about sex?~ + c-allaboutsex
END



Reasons for the changes to the male lines:

But you go along and find some poor girl to make wish that she had stayed home tonight.

The infinitive is throwing me.

But you go along and make some poor girl wish she'd stayed home tonight.

I am spoken for. But a fling might be just the thing. She has been getting very possessive and controlling lately. We are not married.

PC allergic to contractions? Also, it sounds kind of odd for the PC to be so decisive in the first sentence and then waffle.

I'm spoken for... but a fling might just be in order. She's been getting a bit too possessive and controlling, lately. We aren't married.

In general, this whole dialogue could use more contractions. I understand that you want Aran to be more casual in his speech than the PC, but contractions are really just a representation of the normal fluidity of speech. Separating each word makes the PC sound a bit too rigid, if that makes sense.

Other than that, love it!

Why add a comma before lately?

A lot of use of adventure/ers etc. in this dialogue. Perhaps at least change or remove one of them. "What sort o' idiot wanders Toril in th' company o' a mixed group o' adventurers, following some young Bhaalspawn to certain death an' destruction, probably by a slow an' painful means?"

I like that. Honesty. :D (I imagine such a reply wouldn't require a charmed state for Aran, although he might dance around the response a little more without that.)

wanted to hold on to the feeling

It would be fun to have a response or two where the pc could be just as drunk. There could be some gibberish talk that only someone drunk would be able to truly comprehend or something like a friendly competition such as, who can drink the most before passing out, how many tavern wenches they could kiss without getting slapped, and so forth.

Maybe even a rare occurrence where the pc is too drunk for their own good and Aran is sober enough to see some potential trouble. It could even be an "Aww" moment for female pcs.

That's just my two cents. Take it for whatever it's worth.

OK, looking at it, I dumped talk three permanently, so I can concentrate on just two, and expanded talk 1. It *was* all about sex, which is probably because I have been grumbling and swearing over the mature content lovetalks and bathing/swimming interactions. So this time, let's try to keep his mind in the gutter only some of the time, and allow PC to have some different ways this could play out. Here is draft 2 (thanks, berelinde, for a quick "challenge via constitution" logic tree!) I think talk 2 will be easier, but probably should have some romance paths. This one is getting detailed enough as it is.

Repairs and ideas integrated form the above posts - if you see one I missed including, please let me know :)

( Jessception,

Maybe even a rare occurrence where the pc is too drunk for their own good and Aran is sober enough to see some potential trouble. It could even be an "Aww" moment for female pcs.

This one is not included, because I want to explore it a bit and brainstorm. This one has alot of potential as a friend talk - PC goes out drinking to forget, does Aran see her as a friend and keep her drinking, take advantage, protect her, does she like being protected or tell him off for getting in the way - it is a John Hughes Movie Moment that might be alot of fun to play around with for awhile.)

( Jessception,

Maybe even a rare occurrence where the pc is too drunk for their own good and Aran is sober enough to see some potential trouble. It could even be an "Aww" moment for female pcs.

This one is not included, because I want to explore it a bit and brainstorm. This one has alot of potential as a friend talk - PC goes out drinking to forget, does Aran see her as a friend and keep her drinking, take advantage, protect her, does she like being protected or tell him off for getting in the way - it is a John Hughes Movie Moment that might be alot of fun to play around with for awhile.)

Yes, I really like Jessception's idea too. However I can't help but think that Aran's responses in such a situation may not be that varied. No matter how wasted or horny Aran feels would he be foolish enough to shit where he eats? (Take advantage/have sex with his employer.) I'm not discounting his potential for chivalry or potential respect for the pc, but he's been around the block a few times and I imagine he could (even drunk) smell the danger. Just a thought. :)

SAY ~[ARAN] Hells, yes. Well, no. I mean, there be fightin', an' writin', an' sometimes a nice bit o' commentary on th' state o' Waterdeep politics. But mostly, it be about sex. Either havin' it, not havin' it, or whom th' havin' or not havin'... what was I sayin'?~

Also, missing word in next bit. "We wouldn't want to prove them right, now, would we?"

I really like the additions with the drinking challenge and especially the encounter with the blonde thief. :p

Thank you! God stuff, and good ytpo tyop typo hunting as well!

I am still playing around with the idea, but I think it needs to be a separate talk (not a friend talk) for one simple reason - not every PC would go out and get toasty, and guessing player motivation is tough.

The part that makes it even possible to think of trying is exactly what you point out, KIrving - he has been around, and I don't think the outcome of the talk is unpredictable. If there is any indication PC is not in control of herself, it would be tough to write an in-character response that didn't have him trying to resolve the situation in a rough but chivalrous manner, or in the case of a vapid or antagonistic PC (evil responses) a disengagement and protector role (Hells, boss, you done had way too much to drink. Come on, now, let's be gettin' out o' here. Keldorn, take her arm, there.. Korgan, you be gettin' your hands away from her rear, you randy bugger. Right, then, all together...) .

The fun with the talk idea might be to try to anticipate exactly how many different PC pathways might lead out of the player decision to get PC intoxicated. Happy? Happy friendly? Angry? About what? Just likes to drink? The guys in the corner think so... and tat might be fine with PC, but not with Aran (or vice versa). Is she an employer who is about to make trouble for him , or is she a friend who has to be reminded that she is the boss? What about a thief PC? Is she shamming in order to trick him, is she sizing up a mark and he is getting in the way and blowing the setup? Has she had it with the whole deal and wants to just get ripped and punch anything that moves? Does she have ulterior motives, or does she feel like she needs to get wasted in order to get attention? Who's attention is she trying to get? Why would she lose control, and where would there be a boundary that one or the other can't cross while drunk?

I think too much :) But it is fun to brainstorm it.
