Aenea: Dialog.tlk
This modified version of the NWN/dialog.tlk file fills in some blank spaces with some PW-specific text that is called if/when a PC is script-booted. The new text explains the reason for the booting, anything from character updates (voiceset change via Letoscript) to a server reset to a DM-initiated boot. It also replaces the generic "halfling" text with "fae" (what they're now called in Aenea).
- Be sure to make a backup of your default dialog.tlk file before downloading this one.
