Yeah, but NWScript stinks compared to LUA. You can't relate data and
functions the way you can in LUA (so, you can't even work in a way to
pretend it's OO). If they were smart they'd have stuck with LUA or else
gone with an OO version of NWScript.

That's right, but there are other dynamically typed languages that
they could have used. Bioware's moved from Lua to a homegrown language
for Neverwinter Nights, for instance.
