    The speech system is, apparently like every other system in gemstone, a pain in the ass to work with.

    Then they like fucking with it a lot. They used to add verbs and tones on request.

    The code or the syntax? The syntax is awkward enough that I almost never use it beyond ::target.

    You had better pay your guild dues before you forget. You are 113 months behind.

    The verbs and tones are probably written in their in game scripting language. Same one they use for flares and "scripts" crap. I'm sure the base of the verb stuff is a spaghetti coded nightmare like everything else is. I forget who and when I was talking to about it, but some GM let me know that a lot of what we call "code" is actually just an in game OLC interacting with the base C or C++, and that the actual code doesn't really get touched all that often.

    Edit: Like mobprogs if you're familiar with Diku or looking for an equivalent.

    Edit again: I think it was Estild I was talking to, about the difficulties of implementing 1212.

    I've fucked with scripts and stuff a very, very small about. Changing a word in it isn't super hard. When you do it a lot, it is pretty easy. Tones and verbs don't seem like they'd be a difficult change when you know exactly what you're doing.

    No, I'd imagine not. If those are a code based thing rather than an OLC, it's probably as simple as adding/changing a C data table entry. Maybe even an XML file. No harder than opening and saving a spreadsheet.

    Yeah, tones and verbs *shouldn't* effect any other systems, so I don't see where it would require a lot of work. Don't put it past a GM to be a drama queen though.

    Like I said,m they used to create new tones and verbs on demand on the officials.
