I had my high elven fighter talk to Glod the smith, and he said "ugh, me's so hungry". I've never seen this before and I have no idea what caused it. I gave him a fortune cookie and he no longer says this.
I also noticed that the elite dwarven guardians won't let the PC enter the elder's room if he's deaf. The game generates a message that says something like "the guardian pushes you back".
Has anyone else encountered this before? Is there anything significant about this? or is it just that the dwarves discriminate against people with physical disabilities?
