To bring the discussion back to tweak pack ideas: there are some conversations in the gae that only take place when a character is wounded. I looked through Jaheira's dialogue files and found two conversations with Aerie and one with Nalia that only happen if they are below 10 hp, and a conversation with Mazzy that only happens when Jaheira is below 15 hp.

Since I usually don't leave my party members wounded after a battle if I can help it, I've never gotten any of these in the game (and I only looked at Jaheira's files, so there could be more of them). The conversations with Aerie, especially, would add a lot to the game, particularly if they have been arguing over a certain main character...

Anyway, it would probably be quite easy to change the conditions from 10 hp to, say, 1/2 or 3/4 of the character's total hp, which would make them a lot more likely to turn up in the game.
"It is difficult to imagine a gibberling social structure. It can be roughly compared to the social structure of lemmings throwing themselves into the sea, or of a school of pirhana in a feeding frenzy. There is no sense, no organization, and no individuality. Though they clearly have a primitive means of communicating among themselves, they have no discernable language."

I also think that's a good idea. The "wounded" dialogues I've written for Aklon all trigger from a certain percent of HP remaining (although I was only guessing that I could do that). 10hp is the verge of death for most high level charaters, so I (and JPS apparently :D ) don't like to leave them there for very long.

This idea is now included as component of the G3 Tweak Pack.
Did you know G3 has secret forum rules?
Yep. They're generally of the nature 'don't annoy Idobek.'

Does this mean it's coded and now available in the next release? If so, :rant:
