Story: Kuan and Chung lived normal lives in Hell until their father got a hold of an amulet made by Griswold a Demonlord. This amulet was forged as a treaty between Angels and Demons so they may nullify the power of the Ancients. The Ancients were beings of enormous power each created on their own accord. Negative energy that lies dormant for too long within varying dimensions finds a host and thereby creating an ancient. These Ancients threatened both Heaven and Hell. For the first and only time in all existance, Angels and Demons came together to create a trinket so strong that they only allowed those with human blood to possess it. That is when Amos, being obsessed with the Ancients, created a blood ritual and had 2 sons of his own. Both half-demon and half-human. They were able to wield this powerful amulet and do his bidding to seal the Ancients. But alas, Amos' plan to sacrifice Kuan was revealed and instead Chung gave his own life to save him. Nevertheless a portal was opened to the mortal realm and an invasion of demons scourged the land. ----------- 1000 years later, Kuan awoke from his sealed prison after Master Sage Tenoch's seal shattered. Priestess Audie and Master Sage Oat quickly but with great caution take him in and hope that he can be the new "Hero" of this age. For just as it does every 1000 years, Lucifer sends an invasion of demons to try and reclaim the mortal realm as a stepping stone to Heaven.

merdouille posted a topic in Theory and DevelopmentHey guys! I realised lately that sooner or later I'll need to implement some side-quests into my game, to let the player have a break from the main goal, and also possibly get the player some better equipment, money, experience, all this stuff you guys already know. So then I started thinking of those side-quests: Go find that little girl's cat. Slay 15 wolves in the lost plains. Catch some fish for the town's cook. Kill Gluark, the orc chieftain. I know, you've all realised it: these are so clichÃ©! I mean... 90% of RPG got at least one of the quests I've previously mentioned. So then, what new could we bring? I thought, and thought, and thought even more about these, and I figured out that there's no way to vary your quests objectives, because they all fall in very few big categories, making them all roughly similar. So how can you make good sidequests? The storyline. An immersive story in quest chains will make the player forget that it's the 5th time he need to go collect some materials for that poor old witch! But... What if there was another way to add diversity? This question I can't answer, and that's the purpose of this topic (god I talked a lot...): trying to find new types of quests. I will share here my personal way to categorise quest objectives, and I REALLY want you guys to share all other types of quests you've ever created/encoutered. Slaying Quest Gathering Quest Social Quest Landscape Quest That's pretty much all I have. If any of you guys have more, it would be very nice for you to share!! Even if you think it may fall in a category above, don't mind it and share anyways. It may only be halpful to us all!
