Was thinking about the possibilities of the foundry and sorry if it's been mentioned already but I think it would be a great idea to have the option of adding 'flavor' npc's to the maps, this would be like another drop-down menu that would allow you to pick the race, wander ability, population ie sparse, normal, over-populated etc. This would free up the friendly npc's that we use to populate the map at the moment. No more 'npc limit reached' warnings. Just imagine a fully populated map on a planet or even a ship, would make it look a whole lot better.

Also was hoping that it could be made possible to have multiple answers to an npc, giving us the option of branching the story in different directions. Another request would be for your character to be able to have a text box, so your replies or answers can be longer than a short sentence.

Lastly, starting off by entering a map should be made easier, there should be a map transition button we can add to the story and specify what spawn point to use. This would be a whole lot easier than messing around with text, placing markers and the like.

Add more flavor please
