  • Chapter: Customising responces of each attacker and NPC
            
    The following chapter in its entirety is a template for you to customise that allows you to change the words used by the game to describe what a person is doing in combat. You can do this for ANY person in the game simply by copying the following text and inserting their name in place of 'Bob the Goblin'. NOTE: It is VERY important to remember to customise the player's responses as well as not doing so will result in such gems as 'Yourself charges at Greg out of nowhere! ' You can do this by simply swapping 'Bob the Goblin' for the word 'player'. You don't have to name the player when using this mod, but it can help. The tag "[Global Attacker]" will print the name of the attacker, and "[Target Name]" their target. It's best to play a test combat before modifying these!
