Game Development: Death

Announcements about major changes in Haven & Hearth.

Game Development: Death

Postby jorb » Tue Jan 26, 2016 1:48 am

We've been developing, and here's what's new.

New Implementations
-----------------------
  • Added inheritance of character values. You now inherit 30% of your immediate ancestor's stats when inheriting him.
  • Added Grave Cairn. You may bury your ancestor's skeleton and skull, together or separately. Burying the skeleton returns 20% of the ancestor's stats, and burying the skull gives another 10%.
  • Thus: If you have buried your ancestor entirely you inherit up to 60% of his stats total. Known skills are converted to their LP cost and inherited as LP. If you have already leveled beyond your ancestor when burying him, you receive no immediate benefit from the burial. Anyone can bury a skeleton, and the heir will receive the benefit regardless of who buried the ancestor. Smashing an occupied cairn will destroy the skeleton.
  • You may put flowers on the grave.

Key Fixes
-----------------------
  • Doubled the time it takes to Hearth home or log out, in an attempt to address this problem.

In the Pipe
-----------------------
  • We'd like to work on siege and PvP, but we're not sure where to go with it. We spent a fair amount of time tonight talking about it.

We're doing another session tomorrow.

Enjoy!

You know what, that's pretty cool.
Great job :D

EDIT: Will there be any penalties if the skeleton or skull are destroyed after being buried?

Thanks for adding the burial system, I think that it will add a lot in the longrun

Just for the record, we thought this would make more of a game of the whole thing, since it's not impossible to simply escape being aggroed.
