I am finding it hard to not just rail on Gradishar... his four posts on the main page of general discussion currently are all just long-winded, uninformed drivel.   That said, Angier hooked you up w

I am going to be optimistic and assume that they will try some different rule sets for proper loreplay, as I am sure that this particular concept is going to get dumpstered.

Yep, roleplay servers are always the most popular

 

This game looks like a larger scale version of marvel heroes so far with forts.  - nephiral marts 7 2015

I know this topic is basically closed, but I have to say something to the lore reasonings used. First of all, when you have eternal heroes chosen by gods you went: "Oh, so we have these champions of the gods. We have archetypes as playable "classes". Clearly, God champion = archetype." That is not what archetype is. Archetype is a basic personality model, it´s a set of properties, ways of acting or skills etc. You can assign multiple persons to one archetype, because they have core similarities, yet they may be different in some things. It´s actually a thing used in psychology, media studies and whatnot. Fun fact: there are 12 basic archetypes in this theory. This is a simple diagram of the 12 basic archetypes: http://www.formalifesciencemarketing.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Archetypes-Chart.jpg .It is very possible I did not explain it good enough, just google it, there are some good articles around.

They chose to call the classes archetypes, as it is a race+class combination and it is a basic model of what that character can do. Technically, the true archetype is tank, support and damage (and specialist in this case). It´s probably the best way (or at least the best they could come up with) to call the classes, as it is ultimatelly not just a class, but a class too. In one sentence, we can call our characters the Champions of the Gods lore-wise and archetypes mechanics-wise. Not the same thing though.

 

Then there is the question of connection between Gods and Heroes (Champions/Archetypes...). Sure, the archetypes have distinct themes and flairs and you can connect them to different Gods if you want. But as far as I understand it, the Gods chose you, not the other way around. You died. You were brought back to life by a God to act like his champion in the field of battle. Let´s say that you are an elkken that worshiped D´Orion in life. You died. Who says thet another god hasn´t looked at you and said "hey, that dude was really formidable in life, I´ll ressurect him as my champion. I will gain a formidable warrior while screwing over my enemy D´Orion at the same time!". This way you can have everyone serve anybody. Ultimately, it´s not your choice. From roleplay standpoint, you can build interesting characters that now have to fight the champions of the god they used to worship.

Besides, there is also a need to distinguish lore and mechanics. As I said, your hero might not have a choice of who he will fight for. It´d be lame though, if you, as a player, will not have a choice on who you want to fight for.

God's Reach (the 3 sided war) is perfectly fine and makes sense. The Cryptic Tree graphic spells out how they envision the balance between a 3 sided war with 4 archetypes per faction. The problem is in The Infected....the 12 sided war. If each god is aligned with just one Archetype, then you have Forgemasters vs Frostweavers and Confessors vs Duelists...and that creates considerable balance problems that a 3 sided war doesn't have. 

 

Hmmm. I was under the impression (probably from some interview soundbyte) that each god had an alignment (order-chaos-balance) Malachai (sp?) was referred to as a chaos god by JTC, i think. Would that still mean that specific archs go into specific factions?

 

So many words.

 

I am telling you, we will be able to choose our god, it will not be tied to archetype.

 

Very simple.

I swear, you people.

 

Does anyone do any work by themselves around here.

 

Source please, my bottom.

 

(Oh, and look at my post after that)

It is surprising how often people just flat out don't believe me or others on some pretty basic stuff. Most of them are new as well. What ever happened to a little respect and humilty in front of those who have gone before? Especially in front of several.

Come now, that's a little uncalled for.

Uncalled for?  Hardly.  The faq were put there for a reason.  When Adall give you an answer you can bet it is right.   If you are gonna ask a question w/o checking all the sources FIRST and he happens to be kind enough to answer your question ( or any of the super vets ) be kind enough to know the answer is correct.

Maybe it not about the happy ending. Maybe it's about the story.

There's simply no reason to be toxic and attack people on the forums. If you don't want to reply, don't reply. I know you guys attach a lot of emotion to your forum badges and internet points, but keep it civil.
