It's Q&A time at our Facebook Page!!!

This week, Swen Vincke will be around for some questioning, and we thought it would be fun to ask all of you if you have any specific questions about Dragon Commander?

Please post them as your comments to this post, and on Friday we'll post answers to most interesting one... or to as many as Swen can cover!

Probably he can already talk about the story, but not about game mechanics, as things will change as the development progresses.

Take your chance and head over here.

Can I post a question without having my own Facebook page ?

And when will Swen Vincke answer question? Must we read the answers on Facebook or on this forum (I hope) ?

I also hope Swen (he's Lar_q, isn't it?) will not stop making Status-updates ? I love to read them all smile !

I don't know, I think you need a page at Facebook to be able to post.
We'll make an overview of the Q&A in this forum thread.

So far I see I can't posst a question on Facebook because I have not my own facebook page, but maybe I'm wrong I can't post ... ?

But my question (so far not read this question is already asked on Facebook)

I just want to know if Dragon Commander story has more than 1 ending ? And if so, how many possible endings the story will have?
And are there side story quests to do ? wink

Before I can become aware of any potential answers, I shall take this opportunity to speculate wildly and say that there probably will be. Yes, they could have one ending, but considering the variety of ways you are apparently able to take over Rivellon (a variety, I admit, that consists mostly of rumours, hints and stuff I probably made up in my head), that one, single ending would have to be an incredibly generic "You became Dragon Emperor! Congratulations!".

Instead, I think a more... segmented... ending might be appropriate, similar to the slides of Fallout and Dragon Age: Origins or, indeed, the ending clips from Overlord or Dynasty Warriors 6: Empires or, perhaps, the voice-over from Alpha Protocol. Short sections dealing with your various decisions over the game welded into your somewhat personalised ending. For example, ending segments could be based on such things as...

Did you forge alliances with other Dragon Knights?
If yes, were you true to them or backstabbed them whenever it was convenient?
Did marry a princess? If yes, which one?
Did you remain loyal to a single princess or did you marry and divorce based on expediency?
Did you obey your princess' every whim or ignore her completely? Or something in between?
Did you try to maintain as much harmony as you could between the various races of Rivellon or did you set out to commit genocide on the elves or something?
If you are allowed to make roleplaying decisions on how you rule your territories, were you a benevolent ruler or did you squeeze the population for every last bit of gold? If you were lenient here and tyrannic there, did you tend to go easy on your imp subjects, but oppress the subjugated elves with an iron fist?

And so on and so forth, ultimately ending with, of course, "You became Dragon Emperor! Congratulations!"

Ok - answers posted. Here's the link:

As to WotanAnubis' extrapolation on how the story works in Dragon Commander, you're definitely thinking in the right direction, but the fact of the matter is that we're still discussing ourselves exactly how we'll do it. One thing is for sure - the idea is that the campaign is open, you make many decisions, they impact how things pan out for you.

That was fun and enlightening, thank you. Though I do note that the one question even I'm getting sick of asking hadn't actually been answered.

Also, if the look of the White Dragon was based on a dragonfly, what animal was the look of the black dragon based on (if it was based on anything other than a T-Rex, that is)?

I'm guessing the male/female option is still in consideration.
