NPC1: "I was summoned as a pet yesterday."

NPC2: "I hate it when that happens. You're like a slave."

NPC1: "Yeah, it's .. ZIP BEEP ....". Click.

NPC2: "Well, there he goes again."

They never had it in CoH but I wanted to have themed NPCs walking and interacting in my base. I wanted to be able to set their dialogs like have a greeter at the check in desk who would greet the players and a set of NPCs in the wanted area talking about crime throughout the city and an NPC in the movie theatre selling cheese (we're mice after all 😉 ) and .... You get the idea.

OK devs, if you're reading this for ideas then please put this one under the would be nice to have category, ie low priority stuff when you need some filler in the next release.

Absolutely great idea - including a limited number of NPCs in the bases (or private homes if possible 😉 )
Just picture like she said - you have your Clerk or Secretary or maybe a technician or house keeper at the Hero Base - or you have an NPC Partner or family in your private home (or create a little party in your house) maybe a Butler (if you play a certain B.Wayne 😀 )

couple of security guards at the entrance greeting you then complaining to each other about how the radiation from the x-ray machines is hazardous. one locked up in one of my holding cells begging to be released and begging for any food they have .

medical center. a few of them hovering over one in a bed saying "the doctor says if we sign the waiver his medical treatment will be free. "

a few wondering around the base sweeping and or mopping. feeding the animals at the zoo. siting at the security center.

I want to be able to control what they say.

"When I grow up, I want to become a PC, not just another NPC."

"PC?"

"You know, a Player Character."

"Player?"

"Right, they live in the outside world."

"Outside?"

interesting thought here 🙂
maybe some NPCs would like talk directly to the "Live" Person behind the Characters - like in the Deadpool movies 😀?

"Hey, so I was chatting to this alien guy in the bar, you now the ones, cute, grey with the big eyes? Well, turns out, his great-great-great-great-granddaddy kidnapped my great-great-great-great-granddaddy!" (all credit to Babylon 5/J.M.S. for that one)

"Four times today a super-speeder went past and blew my skirt up. I swear it's the same damn creep every time too!"
"What did he look like?"
"Seriously? A vague blur of course, which part of super-speeder did you not understand?"

"So how's that super girlfriend working out for you?"
"Amazing - she's a teleporter. Want a beer from the fridge? Finger-snap. And I haven't been late for work in weeks!"

"I hear your weekend didn't go so well."
"Understatement of the century. Bob wanted to show-off his new fire powers and light the BBQ. But he still hasn't got the fine-control down. Long-story short, we need a new cat. And BBQ. And fence. And the neighbour needs a new car. And house."

"Oh boy, that costume has *got* to chafe."

(person on phone) "Yeah...I got dumped. She found out I was cheating on her....how'd she find out? Hah, funny story. You remember she's a shape-shifter right? Turns out I was cheating on her *with* her...Yeah."

I like those two 🙂 Hope some of that stuff here finds its way into the game 😀

Woman 2: "I'd run girl."

Man on phone/holo: "I got the job!...Yeah...Dude, I make my own hours. And for that kind of Dust you can't go wrong...Yeah, it's in the Warehouse district, but I figure there's capes running around all the time, should be fine..."

Man 1: "We just transferred to this ship but I swear the neighborhood is way rougher than the realtor described."
Woman 1: "Yeah, those brochures can be misleading."
Man 1: "I don't want to risk getting mugged every time I go for a jog, you feel me?"
Woman 1: "I feel you."
Man 2 Overhearing: "We all feel you."
Man 1: "See, I don't need random strangers feeling me...this neighborhood is way too invasive."

Woman: "Working late at the lab all next week, the new engineer they hired needs A LOT of hand holding."
Man: "You mean Eric? I thought he came really well recommended from Liberty?"
Woman: "If that's the case then their crew standards must be pretty subpar."
Man: "Haha, I'll ask the lab manager to stock up on coffee for you."
Woman: "Thanks...No genetic enhancers for common sense?"
Man: "I'll look into it."

Man 1: "If my powers ever decide to fully kick in I'm staying incognito."
Man 2: "Why? Don't fancy being a cape? I hear the Dust is pretty good."
Man 1: "Are you kidding? Those guys work crazy hours. This maintenance job is super cush. Nine to five, sit back and let the Bots do the work, then go home and forget the world. No way I'm giving that up."
Man 2: "Always the underachiever. No wonder mom thinks you're a bum."
Man 1: "I'm still taller than you."

These are great 🙂

maybe something oldschool like

NPC1 : You know, it is true criminals are a superstitious and cowardly lot - but dark is not scaring anybody anymore these days - maybe he should wear pink ?
NPC2: Right, just picturing him in my mind wearing pink spandex is giving me the creeps!

NPC1: You know, I heard he is supposed to be as powerful as thousand exploding suns
NPC2: Yeah right - and as bright as a broken light bulb!

Loving it 😀

Person One: "Yean, it's all about the XP for those folks nowadays!"

Person One: "Wow! This blog says [insert PC's name] is now dating [insert another close by PC's name] and that they are already planning on marriage!"
Person Two: "That's old news! THIS blog says that they have split up and both of them are dating [insert another nearby PC's name]!"

Kid: "Mommy, do you think that hero will be cold when the Weather Bureau makes it snow here next week?"

"Hey [insert hero's name]! I'm late for a meeting! Do me a super and give me a lift there!"

"I wonder if there are any functional bathrooms in any of these buildings?"

Girl One: "Is it true all people with superpowers can see through multiple layers of clothes?"
Girl Two: "Shanna swears it is true, that's why I'm heading to the lingerie store to get some lead-line undies!"

I have no idea what kind of coding it'll take to make the dating rumour do-able, but it needs to happen 😛

Maybe something like

Some technicians talking about their work

" I tell you man, that dumpster is falling apart faster than I can glue everything back together!"
"Oh you are always exagarating - there is nothing a good old kick cannot handle"

"Always putting in new light bulbs, those "heroes" could be a little bit more careful, blasting around"
"Not talking about all those super sonic booms those speedsters are responsible - there should be a law against unnecessary speeding and one gets a ticket if he does damage without a good reason"

Or maybe you got a forum(a place somewhere in the city in the open) where different NPCs talk about stuff - politics, philosophy, religions - I know if that would be considered - the one responsible will hate me for the idea 😉

Oh, while thinking of it - anybody think it will be possible to kick an NPCs behind if he pisses you off with his super smart remarks 😉?

Conversation of three young kids:

"Do you believe the stories? About the old world?"

"Nah, that's baby stuff! Just fairy tales to scare the little kids!"

"Nuh uh! My Pa says that the aliens from the old world eat the bad kids!"

Alex Jones/ J. Jonah Jameson type guy on T.V:

"WHO exactly are you the Ambassador of!? Huh?! I'll tell ya who...THE NAGDELLIANS THAT'S WHO! They're running it all! We're all puppets!"
