Bannerlord: Tavern Songs

So, as people with an eagle-eyed view of my progress in my poetry thread lately may realise, I've been doing a lot of prep for this idea: a mod that simply adds song options via dialogues to all the tavern minstrels, and they actually sing you songs when you do so. Obviously we can't just package up music from anywhere, but that's where my obsessive ability to produce middling quality vaguely bardic/folky music at high speed comes in: I've written seven original songs this week that I'm thinking could be used for this, and I have ideas for at least two more.

Ideally I'm thinking I'd like to get up to twelve songs in the mod: each minstrel would then get one "local" song from a choice of eight depending on the settlement's original faction, and then random choices of one of two comedic songs and one of two love songs.

If anyone would like to help on the dialogue coding that would be welcome, not so much because I can't do it as because it would free me up to produce more music.

I'm 100% not committing yet to getting this released or anything, it's more a case of "I've done half the work anyway, if people are interested enough to make it happen then that's a thing that could be done". Thoughts welcome!

Amazing idea!

I would like to help but I'm not sure if I know how to do the coding, but after the next week I am less busy and could take a look at how it's done

Well it will be a while before I've got five more songs written and recorded anyway, I doubt I can keep up the song a day habit I've been running with so far this month and I'm not planning to try!
