So, I understand from the update that the voiceset is going to be relatively varied for a number of situations.

I am wondering about spellcasting tho: are you going to implement spellcasting instances directly in the voiceset and/or spells will get a "chant" piece of dialogue independent of the voice but still varying depending if the caster is male or female, which will vary according to spell school? (reference here: http://nwn.wikia.com/wiki/Spells.2da)

I am personally hoping for a mixture of both :)
Genderless races could default to the male voice, for the sake of simplicity.

Mosty likely, we will have a selection of different chants, prayers, incantations and mumbles for each voice set.
Then, we will assign the best matching one to each spell.

Thank you. How would that work? One or two instances per each school of magic, ala NWN?

I'm also assuming that there will be different requirements for voicesets, depending on whether it's for a Player character, a party member, a monster, an important NPC, a common NPC etc? How detailed/customisable are these going to be, if at all?

EDIT: let me rephrase the question, are your soundsets more traditional/ala NWN, Baldur's Gate, or ala Skyrim?
