You heard right! After a quick interview-like thingy between Matt and I using a simple IM, it turns out that DNC may actually have a chance of landing our first contract! And with Ubisoft!


Here follows quoted snippets of our discussion:

Ok, well, when playing the game four bars will be displayed on the HUD. One will be the sword's blade comming up from the minimap (on the crytal ball in the hilt of the blade) in the bottom left hand corner - the experience bar. The second is one of the three bars in the top right hand corner. A green bar for health. The one bellow that, blue, is for manna ("magic energy"), and the final, bellow that, red, is the one in question.


Now, origionally, that wound've been your stamina bar, but stamina could actually be part of the health bar. However, stamina, aswell as moral issues, pain, party member health and overall character health (and probably other), could (realistically) have an influence on your character's performance. Their "Will" or "Performance".

The will/perfanmance bar could be lowered by negative factors (a failed quest, dead party member, severe pain, hunger, thirst, low health, boredom (if the character does nothing in quite some time), etc.) while being increased by positive factors (a succesful quest, health increase, food, etc.).

Two stats will also have an influence on this bar:

-Endurance: The higher your indurance level, the less effect physical negative factors will have on the character. Higher endurance will also have an influence on health decay.

-Will power: The higher your will power, the less effect mental negative factors will have on the character. Higher will power will also give your character less fear (which automatically decreases performance) against, well, scary things (think giant monsters) or perhaps even seduction by an evil being of the opposite gender.


So, here's my question to you, the users. Should we have a stamina, will or performance bar?


(Note: Will and performance will be the same, but with a different name)

I think maybe you could have it be interchangeable in the options, because that way the player can change it depending on their preferences/play style.

Putting any of this in the game would take a lot of time and could take some things out of the game so it can meet deadlines/size restrictions.

True, but considering the game in question being an MMO, it will probably have quite a number of patches, etc. so anything we want in the original version of the game can theoretically be added later if size and/or deadline won't be met otherwise.
