Skald is a powerful tool mainly used for creating Dialogs and various text data for the games
It may also be used for:
- viewing and setting some DB data (souls, inventories, items)
- defining characters
- run analyses of designed content
- organizing and setting voice-overs
- viewing translations
Skald also plays crucial part in scripting of the game content. This is where you can condition dialogs, setup skill checks, run dialog exist scripts, setup objective messages, set objective states etc.
When you run Skald for the first time will see this welcome window.
If you setup the local Database properly, you should see the modding DB here. Select it and Skald will load all the DB data it needs.
