Well Not sure how this would work or if they could take the time to do it but if they made it so the game had 7 differing plot threads dependingon what race you choose let you pick any of the 7 council races, depending on the race u get innate bonus/negs, since dD is not really class chosen at the beginning of the game have the race decide what your inclined to rather than the classes, and then u just play as one of the 7 races and Your class is determined by the skill points you choose to get alot of. Obviously being a orc magi would be harder than being a wizard magi.. etc.. I just like the idea of 7 different plot threads and racial bonus's with a class system determined by the player where he ends up.

I like that idea! I made a suggestion once that DD2 should allow the player to choose any of the 7 races for the council, but if it continues with the DD1 storyline to the dot then it may well have to be human again (since it was a human in the intro video and all). Maybe for DD3? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ohh.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/delight.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/up.gif" alt="" />

Well maybe the character got killed and got reincarnated in the desired race would give an excuse to choose a race and continue the storyline <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />

Could be but this will have implications in storyline, if you are a elf ofcourse all dwarves will see you like an enemy and you'll have to start to kill all dwarfes, the same is valid for other races.


I said this too(different races), but not with the same storyline.

well, maybe since you're the divine one you can just possess a body or assume the form....

and maybe not have to kill all your enemys, but just have them automatically have a negative reaction to you, and you have to win them over. but it would be very easy to start a fight if you say the wrong thing.

that'll be great but what if their initial perspective on u is already on hostile? hence the argument we have in the thread 'rules in a rift world' for RRR.

your idea can still work if we have 'charisma' where we have a chance to talk the enemy out of attacking us & maybe even offer to do a quest or two for them. this is what lionheart promises to do. if that game fails, maybe DD2 can accomplish by learning from other people's mistakes.

I don't know if you're going to be able to continue being the Divine One in DD2, though that would be really nice. Import feature? What about a war of the gods? No one's done that yet for an RPG, I don't think. It would be quite epic, and at the same time you would get your butt kicked by the other deities. Maybe not... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" />

war of the gods? among gods or between gods & ancients of the world as depicted in ragnarok?

chaos versus divine beings. nice basis except everyone is uber in his/her own way & no god/ancient is similar. this will be hellish for larians as each character is unique like how greek/roman/persian/other gods are.

nice though.

Well, the title IS Divine Divinity after all... I mean... you gotta have a few Divine ones running around, right? There is also that little hellish demon baby to deal with, the incarnation of the Lord of Chaos. He probably grew up and became extremely, extremeeeeely evil, and so the DD1 character has to go give him a smack down. Either that, or how about we get to play the boy who is the physical form of the Lord of Chaos, wreaking havoc on the land? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/evilgrin1.gif" alt="" /> That would be interesting, as well. Although I'd much rather be a force of good than evil... Two alternate storylines, then? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/think.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/up.gif" alt="" />

Where have you been Jack? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />
I had been looking for you since I registered on this forum.
It is nice to have someone that can be humorous and appreciate humour too.
It requires a high IQ you know. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />

yeah rose, it'll be great if we have alternate storylines. one being the goodie & the other being a baddie & each has its own perspective & path(s) & i hope this will not be mistaken for playing the same story with evil/good aligned characters.

When you find a big kettle of crazy, it's best not to stir it.

Are you <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/question.gif" alt="" />


PS: My plan to rule the world

Step 1: Buy a fishing rod
Step 2: Gather as many fish as possible
Step 3: Use fish in world domination plot
Step 4: World domination

Haven't quite worked out step 3 <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/think.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/think.gif" alt="" />.

Oh you laugh now, but wait till I got Step 3 worked out, my gargantuan giant brain will find a way to make it work.

Did some one say; super geneticly mutated fish people that only do my bidding. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/think.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/think.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/think.gif" alt="" /> Or was that just jack bauer in my mind <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />
