Scripting dialogue can sometimes be a whole lot more of a headache than one expects – I found to my chagrin that when I’d finished the preliminary draft for the dialogue for htis page.. nearly every single line of dialogue started with either the word “so” or the word “well”.. and.. that’s kind of a bad thing. On one hand I really felt I had to remove most of them, but on the other I felt like I really needed that manner of padding to have space for character flair. Ultimately, I found myself having to reshuffle some lines almost entirely just to get to a point where I was satisfied with the dialogue.
On a more fun note, I discovered yesterday that Tokkar of Tales of the Crossroads fame (which you may have spotted linked in the sidebar since awhile back) snuck in a nod to Beyond the Tree in the second panel of his most recent update; I found it rather amusing, especially with how many people seem seem to have spotted it right off the bat! Besides, Tales’ is one of rather few World of Warcraft-based webcomics I actually try to keep up to date with, so go check it out if you haven’t.
