Although I only released the 1st Edition a week ago it appears I have managed to double its size and I already have the 2nd Edition in formatting.
Ai Wander - an example of available idol animations and how to use them in dialogue.
Ai Follow - an example of a simple follower quest.
Ai Travel - Making an NPC walk from the dialogue.
Greetings - More description on the separate greetings 0 - 9
Chance Game - Another more complex dialogue based game.
Random100 - More description of its usage.
Quick Reference - A table containing the commands so far
Just awaiting a story that is currently being written for me and I will be adding "adaptation" and "planning" to that list plus a few things more.

If you read this blog you may know that I hurt my neck quite badly last October and spent 3 months away from my PC.
The last two months have seen it get better slowly but surely but still not enough for me to use a mouse due to the posture it forces on me... Don't ask.
I can use it of course, just not have it welded to my hand like when you model or use the CS so it's cut down what I am able to do tremendously.
Typing, on the other hand, doesn't appear to give me problems providing I don't sit here for eight hours straight so, my only option has been to write.
As you or may not know I started a Morrowind Dialogue for Dummies and released the first edition of it at the end of last week and have started on the 2nd edition.
I may be able to teach in writing through tutorials and publish scientifically based Kindle books but I'm as much use as a chocolate teapot when it comes to writing science fiction.
Please. If you can help me with a short story (don't worry about grammar/ spelling etc) that I can use in an example in the 2nd Edition I would much appreciate it.
Your story doesn't have to relate to Morrowind in any way - That's why it's called an adaptation - as long as it has a start and a definitive ending(s) I should be able to make it so.
Showing how to turn a short story into a quest is of paramount importance I believe when planning your new quest and it is the only reason I don't release quest mods! I can't bloody write the story in the first place.

After all this time procrastinating about writing a dialogue manual I finally started it.
It's still a rough draft but it's shaping up nicely. What I would really like though is some input. By input I don't mean physical help writing the bloody thing but I would like to hear your dialogue horror stories, problems you couldn't solve and anything else dialogue related that has baffled you.
I will be releasing the finished product as a pdf on Nexus but for now, you can read the draft any time you like via Google Docs.
And you can find that here
To PM me your ideas, problems, solutions and difficulties please use my discord link there on the right or by email
Back to writing. Laters.

I've recently been helping someone (Luccar) to learn how to do the dialogue for Morrowind and wondered if "Dialogue for Dummies" should be a thing?
After 17 years of spitting out dialogue and extended NPC replies etc, I think I could quite well write an informative tutorial on the subject.
I would really love to see more interactive NPC's in the game and would really love it even more if I encouraged more people to become modders.
Please. Let me know your thought on the subject. It could be a future project for me.
On the subject of dialogue...
I have updated the Auto-levelling Mercs for Morrowind Mod ( Compatible with Rebirth) to include more things.
I am in the middle of updating it again to include abilities for the Mercs (or at least one of them) to learn spells from the player and other NPC's and a few other interesting things.
If you're interested you can find it here
Right. That's enough from me for today. Back to the classroom!
