Dinosaur MMORPG VI

Sorry about not updating for a few days. I have no excuse; I’m just a lazy bastard and that’s the best excuse you’re ever going to get.  And I was grinding past level 69 on my Warrior… I’m level 70 bitches!  Hellz yeah!  Flying mounts are awesome, by the way.  I think I’ll have them in my dinosaur MMORPG.  It will be wonderful.

So, new classes. Having nine classes was unsatisfactory for me. I wanted more. So, I made more. Logic. First off, I would like to announce that the Berserker will now be available to the Chiros. Woot. And I’m taking away their Knights. Take that, Greece.

The first of the new classes is the Seer. The Seer is a class with healing capabilities almost matching that of the Priest, but with more capacity for damage than the Priest. The Seer will also be able to go into a “spirit form” of some sort. This will amplify spell damage dealt and reduce melee damage received, but heavily amplify spell damage received. So, use it while fighting a melee class and hope there isn’t a Wizard sneaking up behind you.

The Seer will be available to the Troodon, the Chiros, the Neimong, the Alvarez, and the Gracilin.

The second new class is the Beastmaster. The Beastmaster is a melee fighter with pretty crappy damage. However, the Beastmaster may tame and train an animal companion to help it beat things into tiny pieces. I like this class idea because it allows us to access dinosaurs that weren’t eligible for player races (i.e., those nasty quadrupeds). Along with the Shifter, it’ll give us some really cool creatures to work with.

The Beastmaster shall be available to the Anserin, the Veloks, the Orod, and the Prenoks.

Those are all the class ideas I have for right now.  I might think of more, and believe me, you’ll be the first to hear about them if I do.

On to general design philosophy.  I am now going to rant about factions, alliances, and things like that.  Feel free to tune out.

So, about factions.  World of Warcraft has factions.  It’s the Horde versus the Alliance.  The Horde is made up of the Orcs, Trolls, Tauren, Forsaken, and Blood Elves.  The Alliance is made up of the Humans, Dwarves, Gnomes, Night Elves, and Draenei.  This works fairly well for World of Warcraft; players of both sides cannot communicate with players of the other side and are automatically hostile to them.

I do not want this in my game.  My game shall be more… free.  Gank whoever you want, group with whoever you want, and do quests for whichever group of people you want.  This means no factions.  Any player of any race can do quests and gain reputation with the other races.  The game lore will have some bearing in what you can do, of course.  For example, Velok players will start at Unfriendly reputation with the Orod, but this may be changed with some hard work.

And that’s all I’m going to rant about for today.  I’m entirely sure I lost some of you with the World of Warcraft references, but whatever.  Tomorrow I’ll do something.  Or something.

    Heh. I actually got the WoW references, because I spent a few hours on the ski trip watching someone play WoW (with a level 68 Tauren Druid).

    70. Good job.

    It seems like your system is more realistic than the two-faction system. I mean, logically people wouldn’t immediately and rigidly judge you based on your political alignment.

    Unless you were a communist.

    You’re not a communist, are you?

    I like the idea of flying mounts – a raptor on the back of a pteranodon. Win.
