I finally managed to stumble onto this API thingy called ForceGossip().
How do I implement it so I can finally read the NPC gossip text again along with the lone quest offered, instead of the NPC skipping right to the quest dialogue even when they do have gossip text available? (Like Nesingwary's hunter team in Nagrand - you completely miss out on Fitz's story about how he got his embarrasing nickname while you're murdering roks for him. I only know about that one because the first time I did those quests the NPC gossip text still showed up by default, but somewhere around 4.3 that just went up in smoke.)
So yeah. Halp?
