The quotes in PS:T didn't bother me at all, and if I wasn't reminded by posters in this thread which games use quotes or asterisks, I wouldn't even remember.  All I really want is a delineation between action and dialog.  As long as the delineations are consistent, I'm fine either way.

Most of these kinds of elements are of little concern to me, and my preference is very slight.

I should actually change my vote to "whatever way is easier to implement at this stage of development".

I am dying to play this.

41 Pages in were just finished with the first quest.    Haha, no

Just my two cents...  but I too prefer the proper "quotations" over the *asterisk*. Though I'll admit either way shouldn't be a huge problem for anyone...  anyone reasonable that is.

I'll throw my coin for "'s.  As some people already noted, *'s are too forumy and *slappy*.
The Best way to use quotes? Behold!

1. Shake his hand  "Nice to meet you."

or

2. Kick the bastard in the face "Fuck off and die!"

edit: Bit crappy and offtopicish example actually because actions like shaking hands should be included in that great and mighty npc talk box thingy (i.e.  Fat merchant greets you with a bear hug  "Greetings blahblah")

fixed Smile

My vote is still for *'s, simply assuming that it is way easier to add them to the few places where actions are designated, in contrast to adding "" to every single line of dialogue, where its superfluous in most cases. But VD should speak a word of power now. Unless he already did a while back and was ignored  Tongue

VD, back in this post, shouldn't the [Persuation] check be a [Etiquette] check?

Also, and this is so nitpicky and unimportant that I hesitate to even mention it, wouldn't a Lord be more likely to say "I'll have your tongue cut out" as opposed to "I'll cut your tongue out"?  For some reason it is hard for me to picture a Lord doing the cutting.  Maybe the PC is "that" kind of Lord, for all I know.

Oh, And quotes will? What about books? Every thing said by anyone has ""s and no one even notices.

Edit: Vitriol and post length both halved.

Good points, Wolf. It's an old text and the check had already been changed to Etiquette in the database.

No way. Especially if half of the text will be descriptional.

I think it should be disguise, as you are trying to pose as a noble, not directing to one.

Sorry, crazy day. That's what I was trying to say. First check is Disguise, second is Lore.

[disguise] I *am* a lord. Call me a peasant one more time and I'll cut your insolent tongue off!
My apologies, lord….?
Taliades. I'm sure you've heard that name before.
It's an honor, your lordship. I was always impressed by the battle your House won at Nicaea.

1. Yes, it was a great battle, wasn't it? Nice of you to remember.
2. [lore] My House had fought for the Emperor at Trudoth, East Beck, and Stanias. Since you don't know what you're talking about, stop wasting my time and open that door!

Hah, that's what I meant to write.  I even got confused for a second not realizing that I had written "Etiquette".

This is too neat.  The guard is trying to throw you off by using false historical data.  I'm guessing if you answer 1. (yes, it was a great battle....), the guard knows you're full of shit.  Totally plausible.  Every time I see new dialog I get a little blood-rush.

Wouldn't Streetwise work as well?
[streetwise] You notice that he is lying. "Are you trying to test my knowledge, peasant? My house fought no battle at Niceea."
