OP  3/30/13 1:51:11 PM#1

According to the information we have at the moment, we know that Nuada Airgetlam, Sigurd (the Dragon Slayer), and Arthur Pendragon will be the three realm leaders.  These leaders are usually safely perched behind their castle walls without any direct harm threatening their wellbeing.

Anyone else like to see dynamic realm leaders that act as a new form of unpredictable raid boss?  The features could be endless:

  • Randomly shows up to defend against relic invaders, but not impossible to kill... just extremely improbable.
  • Randomly shows up to defend against a dragon, or other PvE-oriented event
  • Perhaps controlled by a CSE Developer?
    • Massive realm-based 'lore' event
As the life of Camelot Unchained continues, maybe even allow the true legends behind each figure to "unravel" such as Arthur dying to Mordred through a power struggle, or Sigurd murding people, and Nuada Airgetlam does battle with (Fir Blog Champion) Sreng and loses an arm.  The possibilities are truly endless and could eventually lead to the death of our leaders, or they "strategically" flee and become missing.  This would help give our realms true identies and persistent character development.
 
Thoughts?

It could be somehow interesting, especially if its a CSE staff member that controls it. Otherwise i'd feel like an NPC is intervening in something that only players should.

Although, maybe 2-3 years after launch, it could be a somehow nice possibility to see our "realm leaders" die, and a player takes their places. i won't develop on that now, cause obvisously there are pros and cons about that too, like who would decide who's the new leader etc. and it could eventually lead to more frustration than fun among many players.

I'd love to see something like this and I believe MJ hinted at it in one of the FPs.  I would, however, rather the random occurance be mainly PvE oriented.  It would create a catastrophic level of frustration for TDD to design, organize and execute the perfect raid on Sigurd's "relic" only to be ultimately defeated by a "random" arrival of Sigurd, himself.

Then, to have Arthur's minions take a mindless zerg (as Albion is famous for doing ;) ) and succeed at taking TDD's relic because Arthur "randomly" jumped in the fray.

I think you are right if it was a common occurrence but if it happened only very rarely I think it would be a alright. Overall, a little bit of this could add an interesting element - especially if the Lord/God wasn't invincible and simply there to mercilessly destroy all opponents. Perhaps his or her presence could give their realm a morale bonus and if this being were to be defeated there would be a morale loss penalty for the realm. Dunno, it wouldn't be essential having some of this by any means but I'm for whatever extras they can add once the basis is established.
