That's tough, with the limitations of the engine.

After all, the game doesn't care if you just lost half your party taking out Firkraag. If it's time for Yoshimo and Keldorn to talk about bawdy songs penned in the margins of books, then that's what they're going to do. BG2 Fixpack might fix this, but Firkraag's lair isn't flagged as a dungeon area, so you get the same random banters you would strolling about the streets of Athkatla. Sure, it would be nice to have Cernd muse on the ephermal nature of the life of an adventurer (what am I saying? He'd be the first one down!), and it would be nice to have a quiet moment to muse over what the party might do for a healer now that Viconia is chunked, but unscripted banter happens when it happens.

I myself would like to see a lot of enhancement upon Imoen and Cernd - which is going to happen, since I'll be the one writing them. ;)

What would you like to see - more interaction in the Underdark? An NPC/NPC relationship already in canon, but expanded? Aerie's Romance rewritten slightly to include xyz?

We're still taking suggestions, so anything is considered, within reasonable boundaries!

Sorry about my english, it isn't my first language..

One thing that has always been bothering me was that, when a (romanceable mostly) NPC says (and again mostly asks) something to/of your PC, you only have one go with an answer, but there are so many different answers depending on your respond... I would SO like the option of actually asking them on all the details.. - Provided maybe that you have to have said something nice the first time they asked. Or for instance, the possibillity to ask Aerie or Jaheira about Baervan/Silvanus, whom they speak of pretty early in the game.. Something like that. But definately more info-options on the different characters, that would be so nice :)

Also, regarding Kjevoslava(?) and Crazy Celvin - for some reason they leave out most of the characters that speak to them, and they don't change the dialogue when you have been through the ones they mention the first time you speak to them.. It could be nice to see Cernd getting a warning that he will gain something valuable(his son) at the cost of another (the wife) for instance ... And maybe a tree-and-bush-metaphor-filled afterdialogue about him growing in the role as a father too.. Or something, I hope you get the idea.. It's a minor detail, I know.. Plus, they don't even have a dialogue for Imoen??

I'd like to see more Jan stories. Especially ones spawned during non-joinable interactions. I've always loved those...
Every spelling error above is not my fault, and I should not be counted liable for such.

What I'd love to see is a closer bond with Jaheira, in the beginning you should be able to comfort her, even without the romance track, in the second half Jaheira could become a lot more motherly and in TOB alot of spiritual banter would be nice to see. Talking about the meaning of life, the heritage etc.

Just wondering why aint anybody using voices for NPC like those:

I think a lot of stuff from Dawn of War fit perfectly for NPC voicing
But most voicing is self-made, which, despite sometimes impressive, is kinda resonating with original bioware voices. Is it b/c of copyright etc? I've met a lot of voice sets for NWN which nobody seemed to bother about copyright.
Also warcraft voices will fit very well.
