Initially, I was a proponent of having shorter player responses so the player could make faster dialogue decisions. Luckily, I got the proverbial board broken over my head, and woke up to the fact that it meant for less interesting dialogue in general. The complex dialogue that we finally wrote for the player, combined with the increased complex scripting possibilities, made the game more robust and deep. In the end, there were more complex dialogue paths and solutions to problems than I thought there were going to be. One of my favorites concerns the Goblin Grumdjum and the River Dryad. I won't spoil it for you... however, just know that high-speech characters should try different possibilities here!
Yeah, Ion Hardie knows who he has to thank for that.
