- Strong religions might gain augments for primary skills.
- Religion should be a big motivator in the game, not an aesthetic.
Is there going to be a way to increase your character's base weight limit in-game?
- It will not be the same from character creation all the way to end game
- Caravan system will move items on much bigger scale than an individual character (an order of magnitude more)
- Caravan system is not just for transfer of personal goods
- Used for quests, nodes, trade routes to help build nodes
- Caravans to be used to build up castle systems
- I can carry enough goods to support myself, anything large then the caravan system comes into play
- Solo player relatively safe, caravan system comes with risks
- Difficult to explain the caravan system in one QnA
- Later will talk about how they play into the regional economy, risk vs reward
[31:48] Religion; What advantages/progression will religion give you as you advance within in it?
- The religion system in and of itself is like a society in itself.
- Going to have advancements in the church itself
- That is going to reflect your interaction with the religious community. Performing quests/building temples, etc.
- Going to have additional augments/customizations based on your religion and that is going to reflect the religion/deity.
- A lot of your organizational choices will affect what types of augments/skills you have access to, including religion.
- We want them all to have a strong flavor but also have mechanical systems to back that up.
[33:39] Religion; What determines a players position in the hierarchy of the religion?
- It depends on their dedication to the religion itself; their performance when it comes to certain religious objective; their contribution to the religion itself.
[34:12] Religion; Will there be a science based path that players can progress down for players who don’t use the religious system?
- The thing is that in this world there are actual gods who exist and you see them.
- You can abstain from going down the religious advancement path if you want, but you’re going to miss out on extra side-grade options (won’t miss out on direct power-up).
- There’s no real atheists in the game because the gods regularly interact with the mortals of the world.
