Sorry if these questions have been answered elsewhere.
First, I noticed that in the big list of "Thou Shalt Nots," one of the stipulations was that no NPC dialogue would be altered. Does that include adding dialogue? Because the one thing that would really sell BG:EE for me is if the BG1 NPCs were to have dialogue similar to in BG2. I know the BG1 NPC Project did that, and quite well (though they maybe skimped out a bit on some of the later characters), but it would be nice to see Overhaul's take on it as well.
At first glance, adding dialogue to existing NPCs seems like an implicit no-no, but seeing how new NPCs are being added, who presumably will have interactions with old NPCs, it must be happening to some extent, right?
Second, speaking of those later NPCs, are there any plans in the works to rebalance the BG1 NPCs a little bit? The only post-Bandit Camp NPC worth picking up is Coran. I mean, look at the options: Eldoth? Skie? Faldorn? Quayle? Tiax? I guess Yeslick and Alora aren't terrible, but if we're picking up an NPC that late in the game, we need some more incentive! Like at least give Quayle and Tiax some decent WIS! While they're at it, maybe spruce up some of the other NPCs too. I feel like Khalid and Garrick could use a bit of a boost.
Finally, any chance of importing BG1 NPCs? If I were to want to romp around Athkatla with Kivan and Safana, could that possibly happen? I know it's a long shot, but I have to ask.
EDIT: One question that I forgot: Any plans to add kits to the BG1 NPCs? Kivan the Archer, Ajantis the Cavalier, etc etc?
