Dinosaur MMORPG VII

See? I told you I’d post today.

In the next few posts, I will concentrate on flushing out our Dinosaurian world more. I shall be looking at the cultures of the various races, various political stances, hell, maybe I’ll even draw a map. Of course, it’s also entirely possible that I’ll lose all interest and start talking about something completely different.

So, today I’m going to talk about the various struggles and quest themes that would exist in our wonderful Dinosaur MMORPG. I’m going to start with the Chiros, because I have actual ideas for them.

The major battle the Chiros are currently fighting is against an empire of beings known as the Dromik, based on Dromiceiomimus. This race would basically be the equivalent of the Romans, as the Chiros are the equivalent of the Greeks. Many quests would involve the freeing of Chiros slaves, including a quest line that basically rips off the whole Spartacus thing. Spartacus was such a badass. Too bad he died. Asshole.

Let’s talk about the Orod a bit. The Orod are, as you should know if you’ve read all of my posts on this subject, boring, medieval, castles and wizards, plain-ass, humans. Of course, this means that there’s several nations of them all hating on one another at once. The playable Orod race should probably only be one of these nations, so the others can be used for quests, dungeons, and grind fodder.

Perhaps there should also be a situation in which a player could ally with one of two neutral Orod factions, thus becoming hostile to the other but gaining the perks of one. ‘twould be interesting.

Now I am going to talk about the inclusion of large therapods in our Dinosaur MMORPG. In case you’ve forgotten, therapods are the big, hungry dinosaurs that will eat your face and laugh while doing it. This is basically the role I want them to play in this game: large, violent antagonists. The nastiest would, of course, be the Tyrannosaurus Rex (I don’t care what anyone says about Carcharodontosaurus or Spinosaurus being bigger, T. Rex is infinitely more popular, and that counts for so much more).

I envision the large therapods as the ogres and trolls of the dinosaur world; they would basically be feared by everyone, mostly because they’re really, really big. The tyrannosaurs would probably be collectively referred to as “The Tyrants” by the less large of the races. Of course, the therapods (basically all of them) would have achieved sentience by the time our game occurs; only the large, quadrupedal herbivores would be left stupid.

This would lend tyrannosaurs and large therapods in general to being epic raid encounters. This would seriously kick ass.

I actually have a plan for an epic raid encounter… several, actually. They involve a family of Tyrannosaurs (a father and three sons) who are all subtle references to Slayer albums. Blizzard does shit like this, therefore I should be able to too. I’m not sure what the actual names of these four Tyrannosaurs would be, but they would all have titles. The father would be *something* the Slayer, and his sons would be *something* the Merciless, *something* the Bloodletter, and *something* of the Abyss. Yeah… the sons are all references to Slayer albums. Of course, I’d go even further, because I’m me… for example, *something* the Merciless is going to have an underling named *something* the Tormentor… which is a reference to a song on the album that Mercilessness references.

This is the kind of stuff I spend my time planning.

So, that’s all for today. Next post (probably not tomorrow) shall be more culture stuff, and I think I’ll make a map of the known world. Yeah.

    Interesting concept you’ve got here. Perhaps allow the big, stupid herbivores to be beasts of burden, or… Dare I say it, mounts? Assuming the little theropods can’t already run fast enough.

    + Support for a Dinosaur MMO
