freespace2dotcom Posted April 13, 2015 Report Share Posted April 13, 2015 So I've been thinking. (Which is a dangerous thing for game developers when their customers have too much time, or so I've heard.) How do you guys play the game? I'm not really talking about strategies or somesuch thing that we all more or less have down by now... But instead, I really mean do you guys roleplay in a certain way? I always play the same character, which is a not-so-thinly veiled expy of myself, but that is just my way of projecting myself into the game for higher immersion. That said, my observations of others leads me to believe that I'm kinda unique in naming my char after myself. (I am not very good with names, regardless... ) I was curious if the characters you play as have any definate role-playing value outside of any game stats within your own personal interpretation of the game's setting. (which. although vast, has lots of room open to interpretation.) Even though omni disciplinarians are possibly only awesome in my own viewpoint when compared to the legate's and the Team's, I'm sure that if there is a difference in opinion in that matter, My opinion is really the only one that matters on that to me. I have actually come up with several ideas to pad my own personal extension 'cannon' to the game that I personally doubt that I will write simply because they are at least partially in conflict with the idea that multi pillar magic is not common at all, and at least at some level I agree with that, if only so that my character can be that much more unique and amazing for choosing such a hard path as learning from all pillars of magic during his (or 'my') time at the academy. I've come up with at least a few ideas but writing is also a major pain, to the point that the only adventures I will write will be related to our dearly devoted dumb rock, at least until his story comes to a conclusion. (although I intend for power players to be able to be rid of him in Y2, this will not be the ideal way to get rid of him, you will need to be... patient.) Also, I'd like to shower the team with affection for developing Y1, (and year 2, if it should be released in our lifetimes, hahah) as not many games have been able to capture my imagination. Altough I'm not really playing the game anymore due to my hatred of dealing with *cloud* services and password resets for a hundred things I no longer remember, (due in part to virus troubles and reformats) I still think that the story is probably the most interesting to ponder and ponder, and that has kept me on this forum despite the long, long wait. (well, that and DLC, ) I also like to imagine what would happen in certain circumstances if I were to personally do certain things in setting. Really I'm amazed that some wizards haven't taken the world over. (although I'm sure that's not due to lack of trying ) so, how do you guys play the game? Do you imagine your character as a future Gates Scholar, hiding your best spells from sight for fear of reprisal? Or are you the spoiled brat to make even the richest students look like paupers and only came to the school because your family just wants to make it more presentable for themselves when they give you that cushy 'do-nothing' job in the family business? Or are you the eternal outcast. The black sheep of a family with a tarnished name from a treacherous past, who has no friends or family to turn to in time of need? Or do you just wish there was a random button so that you could go along your merry way faster? After all, doesn't this game take like 10 hours to complete in one sitting? oh, wait, sorry, I'm probably the only one who likes to do that...
