Devs Reveal Design & Lore Behind the Crypt System

Devs Reveal Design & Lore Behind the Crypt System -

The latest Crowfall developer diary has been published on the official site that provides both lore and game design behind Crypts. The article delves into "how the player changes between one character and another". The basis for Crowfall's system lies with skills being tied to an account rather than a single character, hence a unique system for swapping characters.

There are a number of changes coming to the current system that sees players enter the world before creating a character. Here's some of what you can expect in the future:

  • character creation will occur prior to entering the world
  • death will see your character turn into a "spirit Crow"
  • the eventual goal is to remove the lobby completely with players "able to walk seamlessly from one world to the next" with your avatar and all equipment. This allows players to have a single character no matter where they travel in Crowfall
  • the Vessel system will remain, along with Necros being able to create them, but it will be an optional one
  • a limited number of character slots is making a comeback
  • swapping characters will happen at Crypts rather than at a Temple
  • Avatar selection will show in an interface where players can select the character they want to play or delete
  • players will have 6 character slots as baseline with 3 slots that can be unlocked from the Store (or were part of the Silver + packages on KickStarter)
  • empty slots will be where new characters are created
  • Campaigns will be able to customize and enforce limitations based on rulesets

As always, we’re continuing to refine our game loop… and, as always, we will continue looking for ways to overcome our original design limitations where possible.

Soon we will see the addition of Crypts where you can swap avatars – and in the (hopefully) not-too-far-distant future, we’ll enable you to walk between worlds so that our game will start to feel more like one enormous, connected persistent world universe!

Thanks, JamesGoblin!
