Here's an example of one of the flirty dialog options. You'll only be able to ask Cailean this if you're romancing him.

This is an edited version of the dialog originally posted (which follows this version).  Please tell us what you think about the changes.

NOTE: The format is slightly different, as this version had been coded.

--------------------------------------

Color1_2

C:  ~That's a strange question, even for you.  Why do you need to know?~

P1:  ~Just curious.~ + Color1_3

P2:  ~What's the difference?  Just answer the question!~ + Color1_4

P3:  ~I don't *need* to know.  I *want* to know.  There's a difference.~  + Color1_3

Color1_3

C:  ~It's just that... well, it just seems like an odd question to ask someone you're traveling with.~
~ Of course, I've never adventured with anyone but my Aunt so maybe I'm hopelessly backwards. I can't imagine my Aunt ever asking something like that... and she asked some questions that made you think twice. ~
~For instance, she would ask everyone who joined with her what they wanted on her headstone.  At first, it seemed morbid but after a while I thought of it as comforting.  No matter where you fell, you would never be alone since you had words you loved with you always.~

P1:  ~I just want to know your favorite color.  I have no hidden agenda.~  + Color1_4

P2:  ~You find that comforting?  I find it anything but.~  +Color1_11

P3:  ~I wasn't planning on having a deep, meaningful discussion with you but now you've piqued my curiosity.  Why don't you go ahead and tell me what you want on your tombstone.~ +Color1_8

P4:  ~And if she would have asked you your favorite color, it would have been...~  +Color1_4

Color1_4

C:  ~Green.  My favorite color is green.~
  = ~Do I pass the test or do I need to try again?~

P1:  ~Sorry, there's no second chances for you.  You're out of the party.  Just leave your equipment with me and hit the road.  Kidding!~ +Color1_7

P2:  ~I like green, as well.  Do you realize that the green of your eyes put emeralds to shame?~ +Color1_6

P3:  ~Nope.  Green is as good a color as any.~ +Color1_5

Color1_5

C:  ~Well, I'm glad you approve.  I'd hate to get on your bad side.  Who knows what you might demand to know next... you're so unpredictable.~
= ~You really keep me on my toes, <CHARNAME>.~

Color1_6

C:  ~Heh, you flatter me, <CHARNAME>.~

Color1_7

C:  ~Argh!  I *knew* I should have said blue!  Everyone likes blue!~
 
Color1_8

C:  ~I don't really like to dwell on it but Aunt Leandra always said it was best to be prepared.  I figure I'll be buried back in the little village where I was born.  But I can't decide what I want on my headstone.  I used to think "beloved son of Danica and Idris" was just about all I needed.  Then I figured I could put "archer" there as well... why not?  It's part of who I am.~
   = ~Then I was thinking of a poem but I'm not all that well versed in poetry.  Pretty much the only poem that sticks in my mind is, "let us live suddenly without thinking under honest trees".  I can't remember the rest but it always seemed so beautiful to me.~

P1: ~That's a fine sentiment.~ + Color1_9

P2:~Yuck!  What a load of sentimental pap!  I hate when men show their sensitive sides!~ + Color1_10

P3:  ~(You blink rapidly, overcome by emotion.) Oh... that was beautiful!~ +Color1_12

Color1_9

C:  ~Thank you, <CHARNAME>.~

Color1_10

C:  ~Well, I hate when women show their nasty sides.  So I guess we're even.~

Color1_11

C:  ~Well, everyone dies sometime.  Umm, which I imagine you find even less comforting.  Sorry.~

Color1_12

C:  ~I should have just told you that my favorite color is green.~


--------------------------------------

Original Version

P4: [RA=1] ~What's your favorite color?~ [to block 23]

[Block 23]

C: ~Excuse me? Did I hear you correctly? Did you just ask me what my favorite color is?~ [to block 24]


[BLOCK 24]

C: ~In all my years of adventuring, I have never once had the leader of the party I was in ask me what my favorite color is. Of course, I never adventured with anyone but my Aunt so maybe it is a normal question. But I don't recall her ever asking anyone... I think I would have remembered that. She did ask everyone where they wanted to be buried, though, and what they wanted on their headstone. Is this a roundabout way of asking me that?~

P1: ~No. I want to know what your favorite color is.~ [to block 25]

P2: ~Don't be morbid. I just want to know what your favorite color is.~ [to block 25]

P3: ~Hmm, I really didn't want this to be a heavy conversation but now I'm curious. Go ahead and tell me what you want on your headstone.~ [block 28]


[Block 25]

C: ~Green. Is that okay?~

P1: ~There's no right or wrong answers; you like what you like.~ [to block 26]

P2: ~No, it's not. You're out of the group. I'm just kidding! Green's a good a color as any.~ [to block 26]

P3: ~I like green, as well; did you know you that the green of your eyes puts emeralds to shame?~ [to block 27]


[Block 26]

C: ~Well, that's a relief! Sometimes you are the most unpredictable woman, <CHARNAME>. You really keep me on my toes.~ [END]


[Block 27]

C: ~(Cailean looks embarrassed but you wouldn't want it any other way.) Thank you, <CHARNAME>.~ [END]


[Block 28]

C: ~I don't really like to dwell on it either but Aunt Leandra always said it was best to be prepared. I figure I'll be buried back in the little village where I was born. But I'm undecided about what I want on my headstone. I used to think "beloved son of Danica and Idris" was just about all I needed. Then I figured I could put "archer' there as well. But now, I want something else; maybe a poem that tells something about me. But I haven't been able to think of one.~

C: ~All I can think of are poems of how I want to live, not how I want to remembered. I've always liked this one: "let's live suddenly without thinking under honest trees"; I can't remember the rest but it always seemed so beautiful to me. The only hard part is finding the "us".~

P1: ~(You blink rapidly, overcome by emotion.) Oh... that was beautiful!~ [To block 29]

P2: ~That's a fine sentiment. A statement on how you lived your life is as good as anything to go on a headstone.~ [to block 30]

P3: ~Yuck! What a load of sentimental pap! I hate when men show their sensitive sides!~ [END]


[Block 29]

C: ~(Cailean looks aghast at the tears that have welled in your eyes.) I'm sorry. I should have just told you that my favorite color is green.~ [END]


[Block 30]

C: ~It is nice, but I'd like to have the chance to live my life that way first!~ [END]

Maybe it's just me, but nothing in here would make me tear up in the slightest. O_o I think that's kind of an exaggerated reaction.

It can imply jealousy, yes.  However, Cailean just likes green because he's a nature boy.

I remember that... as a matter of fact, I once reloaded that scene over and over again just to see what would happen when you picked different replies to see if Gavalrey (whatever his name is) could still accuse you of evil-ness when you said good things.  Consequently, no matter what color you pick, he's going to accuse you of liking it for bad reasons.  Even for yellow, he says: "Aha!  The color of an infection on an unwashed wound!" (or something like that anyway).  Course, this only tells you that the man has serious problems. :P

Any chance of some more spoilers?  Pretty please with double chocolate chip icecream with extra chocolate shavings on top! :)  (Or maybe even a sample of some lines that operadragon has voiced.)

Oooh, you always know how to tempt us!   :P

Actually, what I was thinking of doing was posting the edited version of this dialogue and asking if it was an improvement.  How does that sound?  It's *kinda* like another spoiler. 

And, sorry, there will be no previews of Cailean's voice.  We want it to be a surprise.   :)

Thanks, I look forward to seeing the edited version.  I don't know about Cailean's voice being a surprise though, I'm terrible with surprises.  I have a bad habit of persistently interrogating my spouse until he gives up birthday surprise secrets. :)

Actually, it's not a good excuse and it's just a suggestion, but maybe you should spend a little more time checking your words before you post them and try not to get expelled so you can *learn* how to articulate your thoughts in a more appropriate and readable manner.

How about we speak about the dialog instead?  Much more interesting than the weather.

Hear! Hear! ;D

I've read the original and the edited version and I think the edited one feels more complete than the original.  I like the teasing Cailean gets from the PC about choosing the wrong color and his “blue” response.  The only thing I didn’t see as fitting in smoothly was the line about how his eyes put emeralds to shame. Not because it doesn’t fit, but because my PC would never say it.  ;)

Well, YOUR PC has the right to say whatever she wants.   ;)  But I like that response.  My favorite color is green, and I envy my brother for having the emerald as his birthstone.  I also wish my eyes were greener....

But I'll probably choose that "Sorry!  Gotta kick you outta the party!  ...Just kidding!" one for his 'blue' response.   ;D

Well, I think it goes without saying that I'm eagerly awaiting this mod!  I'd like to thank Kismet, St. Josephine, and Operadragon for taking the time to create such a cool (and cute!) character!  (I'll leave it to you three to divide the thanks evenly...   ;))
