    Default Sell 'Personalities' in the Game Store for Weapons AND Hires

    Hey forum reading developer person. I have another idea. No, no. This is not one of my incredibly stupid ideas. This one actually may have some merit.

    Now that the Sentient Jewel system is out, you should perhaps totally definitely consider selling additional personalities in the Game Store. You probably already thought of that so stop snickering, Mr. Steelstar.

    But wait. This idea gets _better_. A Sentient Jewel talks based on cues that occur during play. Right now, that mechanism is limited to Sentient Weapons but it could work with _anything_. Right? Well, probably not with cottage cheese. Anyway....

    If you happened to introduce followers that level with us, you could apply the Sentient Jewel system to them! No, not the filigrees, the _personalities_. You could use the exact same system to make our followers talk to us!

    You could sell a whole new series of hires that level with us AND personalities for them! Separately! I mean, everyone will totally spend thousands of dollars on that! *crickets* Okay. You could probably sell $20 or $30 worth of hires and personalities to most players who are not complete sponges.

    Also, please add a 'helpful mother' type personality for the Sentient Jewels or Sentient Followers. Sunnie gets credit for that.

    This is something I might be willing to pay for... but it would require some kind of preview where I could hear a sample of the voice, and some of its responses.

    I don't have Ravenloft (yet), so I don't have any chatty weapons (yet).. but I'd pay for something like this (soon). Any extra layers of customization we can get are always welcome!
