WIP of the Noble District and Non-combat Skills
The Noble District (City of Khandor)
Also we want to share with you the ultimate list of non-combat skills that will be available unless we need to include one or a couple more due to gameplay needs later. Miguel A.L.M. has been working on it and we are quite happy and sure this will cover most game situations we can think of. The list was bigger but we decided to disregard those ones that weren’t meaningful enough. It must also be taken into account that we can only spent a full year after the next Kickstarter relaunch to complete the game due to budget constraints, so we needed to focus only on the strictly necessary ones to add enough content and at the same time to have full control of the possible outcomes. This will serve us to prepare all the quests, dialogues and game situations so you can complete them in different ways.
Persuade.- try to gather confidential info or usher a NPC to act contrary to his beliefs.
Intimidate.- make the NPC flee out of fear or get some info from him. Beware! The NPC could react and attack you! You can use this skills to attack non-violent NPCs. Want to kill a merchant that ripped you off? That’s your choice!
Sense Motive.- detect when a NPC is lying, how he feels when talking to you, or if a somebody is trying to rip you off!
Lie.- lie to a NPC so he believes in what you made up to achieve your aims.
Bargain.- the PC can lower the price of intems that he wants to buy or increase the ones that he wants to sell.
Leadership.- use this ability to end any issues among you and your companions, or between your companions. You can also issue orders without accumulating bad reputation among them.
Diplomacy.- be polite and try not to argue to accumulate bad reputation among NPCs, they may see you with better eyes afterwards and may be more prone to help you.
Hide.- the PC can hide from enemies patrolling a nearby zone. He will need to be completely still for this ability to have any effect.
Sneak.- move carefully and without making noise among enemies so they do not detect you.
Lockpicking.- the PC is skillful in the art of dealing with locks. He’ll need to use picklocks .
Thieving.- get others’ belongings from their pockets without being noticed. (modo nor-mal&modoPJ)
Detect Traps. be able to visualize traps before you step into them.
Deactivate Traps.- the next step after you’ve spotted a trap.
Track.- the PC can see certain hidden objects and carved shapes like secret doors, corridors, hidden inscriptions, etc.
Alert Mode.- the PC can sense in advance if an enemy is approaching him so he can take a proper course of action if needed.
Camp.- the PC or group can rest during a certain time to heal any wounds.
Knowledge and Culture
Repair Items.- with more points on this ability, the PC will be able to repair objects of higher levels.
Identify item.- show the stats and bonuses of an item.
Ancient Language- the PC can read texts and inscriptions written in ancient tongues. The more points, the more languages will he be able to read.
Rate.- know the exact price of an item so you can bargain or sell it for a higher price.
Investigate.- the more points in this ability, the more non-combat skill points he’ll gain when levelling up.
Archaeology.- it gives the PC the knowledge to identify places when he interacts with other NPCs, reads books, inscriptions or through other means. These places will appear on the game map.
That's all for the moment. We will wait to post the update for the factions system until the next update as there are lots of info to digest and it'll take some time for us to explain the system properly.
And for those of you who didn't see it yet, here the final game logo, I hope you like it too!
on behalf of Azurite Games... yeah, we dropped that ill-fated Autoloot! ;)
