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.

Just my 2 lowest denomination monetary units....

     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.
