Anyone else out there like me, who was always annoyed that even when going after Bendak for the right reasons with a LS character, there was no way to finish the quest without getting DS points? Especially when you could go and kill Selven for the bounty without netting any? Well, be annoyed no more!
This is a small mod that gives you a second approach to the duel. Your character can either be proceeding with the attitude of will happily kill for credits, would have done the death match anyway and the bounty is just some extra cash, which will still net you DS points, or they can proceed with a more LS attitude, of knowing the government put a bounty on Bendak for a good reason, knowing he needs to be stopped, and although they're not thrilled going into an illegal death match that got him his bounty in the first place is the only way to do it, Bendak's leaving them no other choice. The latter approach will not net you LS points, as like with Selven in vanilla, I still didn't think going for a kill for a bounty was quite LS point material, but that approach will not net you DS points either, allowing you to finish the quest without being forced into a DS shift. The dialogue with Bendak hasn't been changed at all, as that dialogue was always more functional than story anyway, and your character has the chance to express their attitude toward the situation in dialogue with Ajuur. The key line is the one that is the point of no return for starting the duel, the options being not ready, the original ready option expanded with a slightly more killing for credit happy attitude which will trigger a DS gain, and the new option which states there being no other choice, which will not get DS points. There is another opportunity both before the fight earlier in the dialogue and after the fight to express how your character feels about the situation.
These were more quickly thought up, spur of the moment kind of lines, so if anyone has any suggestions about specific dialogue that would sound better, or for changing Bendak's dialogue too, I'm taking them
Fully K1R compatible, afaik this dlg file was never modified, on the offchance it was, that was the version used as a base, so like always, install after K1R.
To install just shove the dlg file into Override, to uninstall just take it out again.
