That's actually fairly similar to one kind of ending I have planned. You're not tricked or anything, your main character just refuses to follow through with his plans out of guilt and forfeits.

Here is Sir Jacob the Glass Walker.




He is considered the patron saint of knights in his country. He acquired his distinction by walking across broken glass with bare feet to rescue an elderly priest from a burning church. He is an important ally if you're being good.

Just a question about your game, is it going to be very linear or will it be open ended and just ask epic as elder scrolls 5

Elder scrolls 5 isn't epic it's just big. Epic requires an engaging plot and characters and dialogue that aren't boring. I mean, it's fun and all, but not epic.

Anyway. It's... half-linear? There's a main storyline that has like 4 or 5 points that always have to go basically the same way, but how you get to those points is pretty variable. Well, that's a lie... if you're extremely evil the game goes a very different (and much faster) way.

She's supposed to look like a bit of totty with a head full of nothing.




She's Fyin's potential daughter. She's really not very bright. Also she gets lost a lot. In her house. She does, however, have amazing divine healing powers. Since she is one of two people in the world able to magically heal people, and the only one that isn't a son of a bitch, she's pretty much considered a saint.

Fyin's daughter is intelligent enough to know that she's slower than most people. This bothers her quite a bit. She gets really upset when people make fun of her, assuming she actually comprehends their insults. Gyllioc is especially protective of her, as he sees her as quite helpless, and he is used to his family members being competent.

I could have put more work in to drawing her but she's not an exceptionally important character.

This is Tirival. Regardless of his deathly pallor he is not evil or undead. Well, he's semi-undead. He was well known as the Hero of Muiring (the capitol city of Muir) until a fateful battle with the Dead Kings. He was cursed by them and is unable to resist their commands. He is also unable to die, and has been moping around for the last two centuries and brooding about how much everything sucks.

As Gyllioc you can free him from his curse or take advantage of it. If freed he wastes no time trying to start a crusade against the Dead Kings.

Here's Shael! He and Gyllioc have a serious bromance going on. Gyllioc encounters him while on a wacky slavery adventure, and after breaking his bonds they are bros for life. He's the only non-Caucasian character of significance in the entire story, but this shouldn't be surprising as the story takes place in pseudo-10th century Ireland.

Shael is an ex-noble from pseudo-India. His family was stripped of its status as punishment for its wrong-doing. Shael had nothing to do with his family's mistakes, but was de-nobled nonetheless. After a few months of him being a whiny bitch over the injustice, his king eventually got sick of him starting rebellions and sold him into slavery. He's an outstanding military officer, so after Shael frees him they chest-bump and bro-fist their way back into nobility. Shael isn't an especially bad person, but he'll endlessly tolerate any cruelty or depravity Gyllioc might get up to. He also shares Gyllioc's arrogant noble attitude, even when he's a slave, much to the chagrin of the common folk.

Because after a while hlds always get a apphang error, and it won't stop hanging, so I have to close it.
And also it happened when there were only 2 people on my server, and then it DIDN'T happen for a long time while there were 9 people, but it eventually does that. I don't know why

I'm discovering as I write more and more for TEH DEAD KINGS that I end up writing quests and scenarios that appear like they're going to tell a moral. Then the moral generally gets screwed up halfway through and turns out to just be "Don't fuck with the Dead Kings." At least, that's what happens when you're evil.

This revelation pleases me.

I was reading about your can't die man and I was wondering, is there some way you can help him come to terms with the fact that he can't die? I'd say that the good route would be to free him, obviously straight up using him as some kind of meatshield is the "bad" but you could have some sort of moral grey where you turn him into the world's biggest dick. Laughing at funerals, convincing drunk men to jump off things a la Superman... endless fun.

Well, unless Gyllioc releases Tirival he has very little free will. He's essentially wandering around doing almost nothing because he's a puppet with no puppetmaster. He hasn't been ordered to do anything in a couple hundred years. He can't do much other than wander around aimlessly, defend himself and mope unless he is ordered to. In the prolonged presence of an evil Gyllioc he will lose the rest of his free will and become undead. There's not much room for gray area there. He's basically not even a person unless he is freed.

What happens if you free him varies wildly however. If he thinks you're a good enough person he'll continue to follow you (not ever following your orders in combat, however) because you're going after the Dead Kings anyway. If you're not really, really good he'll leave and plot the demise of the Dead Kings (maybe or maybe not including you).

Ah, it is more clear now. You have great ideas! These are the kind of things that are not touched by mainstream, though I say that as someone that has not played Dragon Age, or most of Oblivion, or any of Skyrim or the other Elder Scrolls games. So there's that.

D'you know some day I'd like to play a game where I'm not the big damn hero, where actually my role, although on a local scale seems to have impact, is actually revealed to be quite inconsequential.

SPOILERS AHEAD, CAP'N, FOR "CONSIDER PHLEBAS"

SERIOUSLY, don't read this if you ever plan to read the book. Iain M. Banks is a bit of a hero.

So I read this on holiday recently, it's great. Science fiction but I think the concept could transfer to some huge fantasy world.

In this book a huge amount of plot happens. There's some big space war going on and there is one mercenary type person caught in the middle of the two factions. He is sent on a mission to obtain an AI for one faction; this AI belongs to their enemies. He goes through an immense amount of shit to get to it but in the end, on a galactic scale, his impact is essentially negligible. The war ends with him having had no say in the outcome. But it's really interesting to have a really different view on this, so much happens but as I say it doesn't matter, in a sense. It really got me thinking anyway and I do so love it when games make me think.
