Brainstorm I & S - Evil meter
#28
@Burningpet: I love that design

Mastergoose Wrote:The EP-meter, which shows your Evil Points, which are kinda like mana/money and stuff like that.
The Alliance meter, which shows your alignment with the humans/surface. This would start out as neutral and depending on what you do on the surface this can go towards evil.

This sounds like a good way of handling things. My thinking on the Alliance Meter would be that it could range anywhere from ally to enemy and all points in between, with it starting at neutral. Also, if factions are included there should also be a separate Alliance Meter for each faction, and the AI factions could also have relations with each other, tracked by more Alliance Meters. SO things that could drive the Alliance Meter between any 2 factions down could be attacking a member of that faction, streaking from that faction, destroying any of their buildings, claiming their territory for yourself, or doing any of the above actions to an ally of theirs. Things that would raise it could be trading peacefully with that faction, signing treaties with them, attacking that faction's enemies, helping that faction when it's under attack, giving items to that faction. This way Dwelvers would have a whole new world of possibilities in the realm of diplomacy, and many different ways to play it.

On a side note, it could also be interesting to see what happens when you create an army of orcs and then become more good and either those orcs become more good along with you or desert you, becoming hostile neutrals. The imp's allignment would simply copy the keeper's, since they just want to please master no matter how master gets pleased, whether it's doing honorable acts or acts of unspeakable evil.

Also, in addition to Evil Points, there would need to be Good Points as well, for something like this to work. Good points would be accumulated by trading peacefully, honoring treaties, giving items to others and other "good" deeds.

I realize that would be a huge deviation from the Dungoen Keeper theme but at the same time that may also serve to differentiate Dwelvers form Dungeon Keeper further so people aren't so much looking for a DK clone but a game in it's own right.
