Erik wrote:The most recent state of the grid blog post by Rod Humble says outright they will be implementing scripted avatars for NPC (and other) purpose uses. So this little ditty you wrote is actually not far from the truth in SL (I figure about a year if we're lucky.)
In short: it's coming soon to SL. Personally I think they' work best as silence walking scenery to give the immersion of crowds going about their business in a city. As for actually role playing with one? You can create an AI Avatar using the ALICE engine already (been available for at least three years now).
In fact on my Ari account I actually had a "magic" HUD that had an AI based on ALICE and it was utter hoot to chat with.

I don't think it'll be a good addition to BtB Gor though which already lacks "combattants" as it is. And having a chance on getting shot or hit by a NPC guard everytime you attack a FW would just turn FW into "automated femlaws" no?
