Since my “comeback” to NWN as a player a few weeks ago, I’ve realized that I have lots of embarrassing questions about the game that you’d think a longtime player like me should already know the answers to, but I don’t - either because I forgot or because I never thought or dared to asked before. So I’ve been meaning to create this thread for a while. It’s open to anyone who has a question.
The thing is, I’ve already forgotten most of the questions again (so maybe I do have a bad memory ), but I’m sure they’ll come back to my eventually. To start things of, here are two I still remember, one simple enough, one probably a bit trickier, seeing that presumably most users here play the game in English:
I play humans almost exclusively, partially for the looks, and partially for the freedom and lack of drawbacks. But I’ve noticed that e.g. playing a half-elf apparently only gives you additional advantages over a human and no drawbacks at all. Is that true?
There are a lot of background voices in the game, singing drunkards in the tavern, shouting merchants or pleading children in the streets. Out of curiosity, does anyone know if the translations to other languages also replaced these sound files with voiceovers in the target language? Or do you always have English language chatter in the background, even when the rest of the game is French, German or Polish (I think those are the three languages with own voiceover translations)?
