Dice Rolls in Multiplayer Dialogue?

Dice Rolls in Multiplayer Dialogue? - Star Wars: The Old Republic - MMORPG.com

One issue that has many fans wondering is how Star Wars: The Old Republic will be handling their "interactive dialogue system" aka multiplayer dialogue. Who speaks? When? How do I stop someone from griefing my story? These are all questions that come up when contemplating this feature. While it is unique to say the least, it's obviously also a can of worms.

The latest video documentary for The Old Republic focusing on the voice-over on the game may give us some clues as to how this system will work.

A blog following The Old Republic known as "Darth Hater" has gone and dissected the latest video documentary, and among all the little tidbits of information one in particular stood out: when two players are involved in a dialogue there are apparently dice rolls going on alongside the character portraits in the group window.

This leads the blogger, as well as myself, to wonder: Will dice rolls be handling who speaks in a group dialogue situation?

What do you make of it? Let us know in the comments.

 Check out the full video dissection over at the Darth Hater blog.
