Hello, well As Fallout it comes November 10th, I certainly wouldn’t be able to engage in the Nanowrimo. So I started NAOCWRIMO with a game request by forum, a realistic Spanish medieval simulation. I have already written down 2,000 words mostly code. But I want comments on some features I am adding and are totally different from other Cogs.
-You can’t select anything about your character previous you take control of him or her
The reasons are basically two. In the world at that time of history destination is provided by a rigid caste on what people called the 3 bodies. Noble warriors, priest hood, ground state commoners. You hardly could change a single minute in the cosmic shedule.
Second realism and make the experience unique. Each time you replay will be different in many ways. Once you will be a young girl Novice that is great in growing cabbages dreaming in a man that could come and make his bride. Other a commoner guy that believe that his neighbor is a witch … Other the cid squire just before he get exile.
In Spanish literature fate and destiny and if free will exist or not has been a major topic in a millenia, from Jorge Manrique to Federico Garcia lorca and some folks like Lope de Vega and Calderon de la Barca. So from a literature perspective has sense.
I promise that freedom will be good in the gameplay.
Second thing interlude between chapters would be the story of the a charismatic poisoner bard recording the story some centuries later a kind of Sherlock Holmes with a lute and daggers
So yeah, guys you will control her. so Any opinions in my little NAOCTWRIMO it will be a little story no more 50,000 words.
