NPC Speech

Post  KBlack on Sun 26 Sep 2010, 4:27 am

Ok I have a few questions so I can better figure out what NPCs would logically talk about and what services they can offer:

1- What are fixers expected to do in the game? Sell mission-specific information (this would be cool)? Help buy/sell black market stuff?
2- Same thing about the entertainer in the arena, is he a pimp? a bookie?
3- As I understand it, "The Wall" is a small shady bank the player can use?
4- What's the Vamal gate?

If some of the answers aren't specified, we can work together on finding them :p

OMG !
Welcome Kblack !
ill try to answer your questions as brief as i can:

1. fixers - they can provide certain items at lower costs(usually ammo medikits or weapons) or sometimes unique items that you cannot find in shops .or some unique services like : removing implants, deleting head hunter bounty on your head etc

2. entertainer = something like bookie , in the arena you can only do 1 vs 1 for money match something like the thunder dome in mad max or like the colosseum in rome

3. the wall(not the best name i had ...) its a corp , the player can have secondary missions like:
- recover this package from corp
- an employer of the wall wants to change his job but the boss doesn't let him and he is held there against his will so save him
- go in that corp and hack their system

4. customs gate is the way to go out of the city and travel to the next city , and cause first version will be single player and only 1 city, the ending of the game must take place at customs gate when you leave this city behind and travel to the next one

Ever played the shadowrun genesis game? You could sell fixers sensitive data you found on the matrix and it would attribute it a random price. It would be cool to be able to do something like that here, to help hackers grind some cash towards their pricey cyberdecks and stuff.

Here's the start so you can gauge whether that's what you want:

OK I've changed permissions to "public on the web". Could someone tell me if it works? Also give your thoughts on the content.

Works for me too


"I have to say I hoped you weren’t one of those newbies" - hahaha nice touch

For the 3 chat option of the first character you'll need charisma +2 to have it

SO the first char lines are perfect

second char line 3 - perfect looooooooooool nice description of android + humor

last char line 2 - ahahahahaha again nice humor touch

IN conclusion - its just what we were looking for , perfect

1. fixers - they can provide certain items at lower costs(usually ammo medikits or weapons) or sometimes unique items that you cannot find in shops .or some unique services like : removing implants, deleting head hunter bounty on your head etc

and + upgrade (enchant or slots) for items to make them unique, something like that...

2. entertainer = something like bookie , in the arena you can only do 1 vs 1 for money match something like the thunder dome in mad max or like the colosseum in rome

yeah, nice idea... like a card game or other mini game to farm for money with limited time per day... on this idea we can make like a tournament of players... with point per win with bonus for 1st position... or something like that...

sorry for my bad english Very Happy im not a pro Very Happy

so when will the game be finished in alpha or beta test?

Of course , its perfect , the text length is also perfect but i will comment on all char text :
*NOTE: in red jackal entrance is free, in blue you gotta pay some money to enter or go free if you got rep above x lvl and in coco bongo you must have rep x lvl to enter

Anna 69 - give her a line in which she gives away that she is an android ,something like *hey are you human?"

winstone(mars ahahhaha) - LOOOOooooooooooooL i laughed so hard i woke up my gf Smile))))) *Notice I said “follow you”, not “go ahead and get killed in a suicide mission”.* + nice description of the blue guy although i was hoping to make the blue guy the strongest mercenary from this first city but its fine by me i laughed so hard haha

hawk - nice description , fits exactly the personality

Tina - hahaha , the girl knows her score + add an option that she sells discounted medikits(of some client that was drunk and forgot them or something(that option available only if charisma skill is x)

Stanley-nice chat

Dorian Tyrell- perfect side quest mission add + nice town description

Freeze-evil o_O sounds like caleb brightmore elf bodyguard ... evil

Goldman- ahahahahahahahahha very funny i like the guy's lines, arrogant and about the arena that sergey must answer he is the programmer but its a very good idea


PS: sam pls correct my grammatical mistakes, tnx in advance

IN the final version we must do some censor option , if censor is on it will appear f*** if you choose censor off it will appear fuck

Conclusion keep up the great work , its outstanding and it really shapes the universe, try making some info about the great war

Yeah Winston's name is a rip-off from Shadowrun on the genesis. I like doing that sometimes, referring to other works (check out everyone's name in Cocobongo, apart from Goldman, which is also a reference to something else).

Also: Just because Winston says Goldman is a noob it doesn't mean that he is. It's all rumors at this point. He could be a potent swordsman, just new in town.

Thanks for the kind words guys. I have to say the character art is a great inspiration.

Have you guys thought about the character creator? Will it have a fixed character, or will you get to choose gender, race? will you be allowed to make an android character?

Depends on what main plot and story we will pick up , best way is to make all possible scenarios at "First release Storyline" and by the end of the week to have a poll for voting what scenario should we use then we shall see if the char is a fixed one or you can customize it in race to
