Kirill in divinity sins as an NPC +VOICE + update

Kirill in divinity sins as an NPC +VOICE + update - 26/04/13 06:45 AM

Hello everyone,
So here yesterday during the live gaming session session with Jim Sterling from Destructoid on Twitch TV a few of us (backers) come up with the idea to include KIRILL as a voice actor and NPC in the game.
It would be nice to have him playing piano in an inn or tavern somewhere or a crazy place. We could also perhaps have a small quest around this. Like finding a partition lost somewhere or helping him in creating music or something funny. What would be great is that we could also include when he plays piano the update song.

We also would like to be able to have his hairstyle in the game!

So if you are interested in the idea you can support us!

Yeah, the players will spend hours upon hours on searching for the long lost Sheets of Remarkable Music of an ancient, wonderful symphony. And when they have finally collected all pieces and present them in reverence to Master Kirill, a candle falls over and burns the sheets to ashes.

"NOOOOOOoooooooo!!" cries Kirill (and the players).

...

"Oh well, who needs sheet music anyway," Kirill says, and starts playing by heart as usual. smile

God yes.. and ofcourse when you talk to him and ask him "update?" he sings the update song...

it'd be great to have kirill have his own NPC in game and perhaps a quest is given hint of in one of his songs that you have to discuss with your partner so like say a song about some lost tomb or as said above quest for the lost sheets of remarkable music in a few towns that our dear bard kirill went to before and once you complete it we get to see kirill dance and sing maybe ^^
...hope they do watch the forums and the kickstarted comments and make the kirill npc with hairstyle etc i think it'd be awesome to see in the tavern...maybe after a lost sheet music quest he also gets a full orchestra in game hehehe

Re: Kirill in divinity sins as an NPC and voice actor - 26/04/13 08:34 AM

also forgot to say that in Divinity 2 he had a role. Someone from Larian told me that yesterday at some point.
But we also really need his hairstyle + superpowers!
Kirill Hairstyle = controling animals or something like that!

hehe kirill is an amazing composer and i think itll be a cool hats off to him ^^

Re: Kirill in divinity sins as an NPC and voice actor - 26/04/13 08:47 AM

Or just like in D2 where he was the musician in the Dragon Tower he could be in the House at the end of time.

Re: Kirill in divinity sins as an NPC and voice actor - 26/04/13 08:53 AM

hehe that would be cool

Re: Kirill in divinity sins as an NPC and voice actor - 26/04/13 08:56 AM

haha, I was thinking he could be an npc at the Shelter Plane that would be playing music at your residence and talking to him would change what song is being played in the background while there.

Oh, and he'd automatically play the Update song tune if your book has an update that is waiting for you to check out. smile

Re: Kirill in divinity sins as an NPC and voice actor - 26/04/13 09:21 AM

maybe we can have both at the tavern and at the home thats at the end of time ^^ and add a line of kirill giving a quest for parchment for new song ideas even hehe
Posted By: Ragnin

Re: Kirill in divinity sins as an NPC and voice actor - 26/04/13 09:51 AM

I suppose he could give you a quest to get the lost music sheets and then he joins your house at the end of time with a full orchestra. smile

But I think it would be great to have him as an NPC in game as well.

Re: Kirill in divinity sins as an NPC and voice actor - 26/04/13 10:23 AM

YES! We need Kirill in the game. And whole Larian team as well.

Re: Kirill in divinity sins as an NPC and voice actor - 26/04/13 10:33 AM

Heh, the Larian team could be found in Divine Divinity and Kirill was the musician in The Battle Tower in Divinity 2.

So why not again? But I'd prefer him to be in a tavern. The whole of Rivillon should be able to hear his music.

I think having Kirill as an NPC in the Homestead playing music is awesome.

And he can have a side quests where you have to find the legendary lost music sheets! With every sheet found, a new song that can be played in your place is unlocked, and if you find them all, something special happens! laugh

Let Kirill play in taverns and we can put gold in his jar on piano to request a tune.

Just registered to approve of Kirill and David as a bard duo rocking out in the game! Larian, this has to happen.

Of course I am also serious about it!
That's why I think we need lot's of support and a few good ideas for small quests.

We don't ask for a huge quest but would be nice for backers.
So all support is welcomed.

Re: Kirill in divinity sins as an NPC and voice actor - 26/04/13 05:48 PM

I'd love that too. As someone who spends quite a lot of his time in pubs in real life, I'm always struck by how lifeless they seem in RPGs. Usually there's 2 people in there and it's totally silent. So not only are Kirill and David awesome in general, it'd be great to have actual music in the inns and taverns to really give it some atmosphere and life.

They have NPC scheduling in the game now, so maybe they could schedule a concert tour of the Epic Duo through every tavern and pub in the game? And if you manage to be there for every single event, you get to sing with them in the end of the questline. laugh

Well I'm not a big fan of the night thing but I like the idea of them running to shelter when it begins to rain smile

I wonder what the guards will do if you make a ran cloud upon them ?

Re: Kirill in divinity sins as an NPC and voice actor - 26/04/13 05:59 PM

@Koveras: Yes, great idea! That's exactly the kind of fun thing Larian put in their games that set them apart. Also, if they do achievements, there could be a Groupie one for that.

They will continue their duty (if they are loyal) or search for shelter (if they are a bunch of lazy bums).... hahaha

They could have parapets by their posts that they go under when it's raining. When it's clear, they'll march around out of cover.

I'll just leave this here. Kirill could likely turn this into an epic piano song, and I somehow think the band would approve if you ask them...

Ah the bard song is great. As for the band approving who knows, they did appear in Sacred 2 though...

I do think they enjoy RPGs, who knows, maybe they even pledged, I wouldn't really be surprised if they did tbh... smile

Re: Kirill in divinity sins as an NPC and voice actor - 27/04/13 12:18 AM

I think there should be an NPC schedule for him to accidentally flood a tavern out wanting to take a bath. Maybe a spell went wrong?

Veterans here will know what I'm talking about.

Last time I saw Swen he had a bottle of wine in his hand. So yeah, they will probably need a day or two to recover. ^^

But a drunken Swen answering this would be way more fun.

Plus who knows what else he'll promise in his drunken state. :p

Beer ALWAYS helps matters. Any matters. laugh

Btw, if this does get implemented (Kirill and David rocking out in a tavern), it just HAS to include one moment where Kirill rocks so hard, his instrument falls apart and everyone helps him put it back together before the party continues. laugh
