Description

Paralyze an NPC one or more times as necessary until they taunt you. The script is read and displayed, but the NPC's mouth remains shut.

History

#1 Updated by scrawl . over 3 years ago

Not sure what the expected behaviour would be. Should paralyzed NPCs be able to move their mouths? Or should they not be able to talk whatsoever (thus interrupting anything they previously said)?

#2 Updated by Marshall Styczinski over 3 years ago

I've wondered about this in the past too, and I would think the NPC's mouth would be paralyzed along with the rest of their body. If an NPC dies while saying something they continue to speak as well.

#3 Updated by Marc Zinnschlag over 3 years ago

  • Target version changed from openmw-0.32 to openmw-0.33

#4 Updated by Sergey "Shnatsel" Davidoff over 3 years ago

Both of these issues are present in vanilla Morrowind.

#5 Updated by Marc Zinnschlag over 3 years ago

  • Target version changed from openmw-0.33 to openmw-future

Moving to future instead of 0.34.0, because this issue is also present in vanilla MW and therefore does not need fixing in 1.0.

#6 Updated by Will Herrmann 22 days ago

  • Tracker changed from Bug to Feature
  • Subject changed from Paralyzed NPCs Talk With Closed Mouths to Allow Paralyzed NPCs to Talk With Open Mouths

Reclassifying as a feature, since this is how vanilla Morrowind works.

  • Subject changed from Allow Paralyzed NPCs to Talk With Open Mouths to Disallow Paralyzed NPCs to Talk With Open Mouths

#8 Updated by R. D. 22 days ago

Isn't there a quest in Morrowind with a paralyzed barbarian who can still talk to you? Realism aside, I think that's how it was supposed to be. Maybe the paralyze spells only work up to the neck. :)
