Initiative in NWN2

There are two feats ("Improved Initiative" and "Blooded") in game, which provide a bonus to Initiative. But how it works in real-time game? Does anybody know?

My guess would be that initiative determines the order in which combat actions are evaluated by the game engine during a round. It's hard coded though so who knows?

Well yes, initiative deterimes order of actions during fight, but how exactly that's counts and affects the game. I found some info on NWN wiki

Looks like all these feats is useless :(

Not completely useless, but certainly less useful than in the PnP game.

it's the kind of thing that could be factored into the XOReos engine ... say, a 1 sec delay for every pip before the loser's next Action begins can begin
