Long story short aka Description
**********************************************

Ultima IV Reborn: it's a remake of Ultima IV made by Devi, and fixed by Glanestel Dragon,  with Neverwinter Nights 1. The gameplay is a compromise between Neverwinter and Ultima, but dialogues are the same for both.

Ultima IV Reborn AeT: it's a modified version of Ultima IV Reborn, with new models, textures and scripts,  plus enriched dialogues, books and descriptions.

Lets' say a Less Generic NPC and Lore project for Ultima IV Reborn.

--- Dialogue sample--------------------------------------

Original speech of Thevel in Britain:

Name: Thevel
Sex: He
Description: A seasoned fighter.
Job: I search for the mystery of the magic orbs.
Health: Fairly well.
ORBS: A one-handed beggar knows their secrets!
MAGI: Magic orbs.
  Hast thou seen him?
    Yes: Only he knows the orb's gift!
    No: Find him in Serpent castle for he knows of orbs!
----------------------------------------------------------

Less Generic NPC Thevel:

Name and sex: (let's skip)

Description: A surly man, the face signed by wrinkles and scars,  you see looking around with a mix of insofference and nuisance.   He appears like a warrior, also an experienced one, but some sort of spiritual  apprehension torments him like a fever.

Job: (he looks askance you from below)    I... don't understand why I should...  (he clears his voice). Wait, thou lookest from the descriptions, the Avatar?    (he inspects you with attention). Well, maybe I can help thee and mayhap thou canst help me.   (he stands up and rises his voice)  I'm, mylord, looking for the blue magic orbs!

Magic Orbs:  (the warrior bend himself foward and he looks around).    They say that they're  powerful articfacts, who find them can obtain great powers, but they are also secret and well hidden stuff.   I know for sure that here in Britain there was a beggar with only one hand that he was familar with their mysteries.    If thou art the Avatar, thou shouldn't  have problems traveling around the lands of Britannia and talking with people.     Didst thou find by accident such a fellow?    (the warrior looks you with determination)

No:   Very well, thou wilt find him in Serpent's Hold in the Isle of Deeds.   He hideth himself like a rat in the hole!     Not everybody is allowed to access such a fortress, but if thou art the Avatar thou shouldst be able to do it!  That cursed and crippled beggar, coward and elusive like a grass snake, he knoweth the secrets of the orbs.  Dost go there and then come back to tell me what he will say about! 

Yes: And what did he say? Tellest me! (the warrior looks you with greedy eyes) Such a long time I'm looking for them, such a long time!  (his insistence is annoying,  you limit yourself to warn him, then after a sudden bow you go away)

Note: (the beggar has something to say too)
