  1. Im starting this in hopes people will rally for the possibility to make kotOR 3. Please spitball your Ideas here
  2. Coming straight out of this thread with some thoughts... Would you be willing to sacrifice a couple of Mega-Dungeon Levels for more overland exploration? I did a bit of a head-count and some research in this post as well. This is a guesswork list by the way, but I think it could be close to the actual numbers: - 30 Areas in TOTAL - 15 Mega-Dungeon Areas - 2 Big Cities, 4 or 5 areas each. - Depending on the 2 Big Cities, that'd make 5 or 7 Wilderness Areas. So my thoughts are... could some of the levels of the Mega-Dungeon be sacrificed and/or tributed to Wilderness areas? Because as it currently stands, it looks like Eternity might be a Baldur's Gate version of the first Diablo or Torchlight game. Except that in Eternity's case the Mega-Dungeon is optional and not required to finish. This means 15 areas to explore, most of them 2 Big Cities (excluding the Mega-Dungeon as it is an optional thing). On top of my head, I can think of 4 solutions: 1) Donate 5 (or even 6) areas of the Mega-Dungeon to the overland exploration. 9 or 10 levels of MEGA-Dungeon is maybe not "MEGA" but definitely "Mega". 2) This World Map Dream Post (Yes yes self-promotion or whatnot but I haven't followed that thread entirely so I don't know if there are better examples) @Obsidian: If you make World Map Travel simple and interesting at the same time you might not need too many "Wilderness Areas". More Fallout-, Ultima-, and Darklands-esque in a way. 3) Get more funding for Eterntiy to be able to add more content. More wilderness areas and more companions. BUT... would this be wise for Obsidian, as it might push back the release date of the game further? OR, if the "more wilderness areas" and "more companions" does not push back dates but is added as "add-on" content... is that wise for the Eternity Experience? 4) Include the Mega-Dungeon into the story, make it not an optional thing but an "obligatory" thing to complete the game and story. Many games, in my opinion, have used this method with great success. Diablo only had one city and a Mega-Dungeon, Torchlight too and even Legend of Grimrock is using this method (LoG2 is rumored to have outdoors exploration). It is a popular theme that Developers seem to use. I think that "4)" might be the best solution in my little analysis list here. Because it allows Obsidian to use all extra funding they get (which might otherwise be intended for "more wilderness areas" and "more companions") and put it into Eternity 2 and to make Eternity 2 as big as it possibly can be, and at the same time do just what they want to do, add more wilderness areas and add more companions, except they'd do it for Eternity 2 instead of Eternity 1. What are your thoughts?
  3. The replace the clumsy "l" system..here's a multi-option poll. Indira, if you could copy-paste you list with links and/or more detailed descriptions, I'd be much oblidged. Untill then, more info on each point cna be founf in the other thread.
  4. Does anyone else wish they could play a Natural Philospher type of a class? Don't say Wizard! Wizards are not scientists! Yes Wizards study, yes Wizards learn, but they learn magic, not natural philosphy. (or as we call it today: science) Where did catapults and siege engines come from? Natural Philosphy. Natural Philosphers are badass. I would love to play a classed based on that idea. Try to imagine: Richard Feynman + MacGyver, and if your head doesn't explode you're not doing it right.
  5. Since episodes 200 and 201 were unjustly censored by comedy central that they should create an uncensored image of Muhammad in "The Stick of Truth". South park is notorious for making fun of every single religious figure. But this is the one figure they haven't been able to show since 2006. Because some butt hurt muslims threatened comedy central. They should shove this in the worlds faces and show us that our free speech is not bordered by threats. To show everyone that you can make fun of everything, because as our given rights of freedom to live. They should have the freedom to show whatever they ****ing want on there own game and tv show. **** comedy central and there censorship, and **** the people that are offended. Matt and Trey have seriously showed us what free speech means, but its time to take it to the next level and show the world that everything is okay to be made fun of, and to show it uncensored. Comedy is an art form and you don't ****ing censor art. So why censor a comedy cartoon show. Let alone a game that is coming out. This is art and being art it deserves better than a ****ing black box that said's "CENSORED". It deserves better than a long ass line of ****ing bleeps like was shown on Episode "201". Create a game that tells everyone to **** off!!!
  6. Hello there my name is Lars, I'm a huge fan of the old RPG games from Infinity/Black Isle, and I'm really looking forward to watching this one come alive. I would love to inspire Obsidian with some off my own ideas, and I know I'm not the only one! One of the biggest hinderance discussing this on a forum is that on forums , people like to argue, or rather to right someone they believe to be wrong without even trying to see it from their point of view. Also there is the barrier of language, if you read a forum post and it's filled with bad english grammar, and a few sentences that just doesn't make sence, you are most likely to disregard it, or atleast you won't take it very seriously. This is where we fall short from a producers draft board, where we excell is at giving a lot of input because we are many, right or wrong. What I would really love to see in this thread though is a bit less critisism as to why it would not work, and rather why it would, help spin some ideas if you can.. We play around and design the idea, the mechanics see what can be actually made or not. So what I want to do here is to make a thread where all can post their ideas within a short template, this could be: Things you would like to see in game As the title says, you could also refer to games where you had some encounters that you really liked. Seal the Deal As with a pair of windshield whipers, if you know the quality of the rubber is good, and the price is right, you are buying it. Since with a a game it's a little bit different, what do you require/want of the game to help ensure you buy it? Examples: I want to be able to relax on the sofa and play it on my tv If the critics give it more then 85% I'm gonna buy it I want multiplayer I want MODS A good demo Cool music PS. This thread might die young, or grow a long beard. in either case I'm thinking instead of "Quoting" huge walls of text you can simply type: @Haawkings (page 1), that way it will be easier to read through. Like if you like the users idea And let me know if think we should add more to the template. Ciao!
  7. Should Obsidian take the route of Skryim and add children in their rpg, but make them unkillable? Should children be present and killable? Or should children be absent from the game? Thoughts?
  8. My question is... Will there be "Epics" in the game? No I dont mean purple items that drop from monsters... No i dont me a high level quest reward. I am talking about the weapons you use and work with that unlock and become more powerful. Here are my examples. Father dies, gives me a long sword... at level 5 I notice the ruby gem is missing... I quest to find a flawless ruby... oh my! it is enchanted with fire... Longsword +1 fire damage... I am in the cave of the Thunder Lords of the Obsidian empire... Why is there a painting of my father?... with a sword that looks just like mine?... the sword seems to have a shimmer to it that it no longer has... Whats this... a new quest, let me find the maker of the sword... After many long hours and zones and towns I have found him, the sword uses your "Soul" to gain in power... The more "Intact" your soul is the stronger the sword is...+5 damage max...??? We can do this all day long, but I guess this is not really a question and more of a plea... give us something to go after!!! I dont want to load and reload 100 times to kill the Necromancer Ravin Ous time and time again WAITING on his "EPIC" Dagger of ogre slaying. Yeah thats fun... but so are SUPER rediculously LONG quests and chains that take a starting weapons to be The Thundering Hammer of Pixie Making! Just incase you like pixies and killed them all... now you can make new ones. Ravinous
