Quest Story Boards

Quest Story Boards - Age of Conan: Unchained - MMORPG.com

Funcom gives us a behind the scenes look at what goes into making a quest with a peek at some comic book style quest story boards.

This week we take you into the world of quest-making, as we show you one of the in-game storyboards for a relatively simple quest.

When playing Age of Conan, you'll come across hundreds upon hundreds of quests that are scattered across the world. These will range from epic adventures to simple tasks, but a common nominator for them all is that the development team put a tremendous amount of effort into making it balanced, rewarding and not to mention entertaining.

As a part of creating a quest, the designers often put together a storyboard comic using in-game screenshots to give a better overview of how the quest flows.

"The comic storyboard is a visual representation of what we have imagined the quest to be," says Age of Conan designer Joel Bylos. "Essentially the comic is a tool that follows the Conan tradition, and allows people to see what a quest is about, which characters it involves and how it ties into the overall storyline without having to load up the client an play through the entire thing themselves".
