Playerdesigned NPC's

This is just a small suggestion to make player houses and guild halls a little more lively.

I would love to have a system where players could create NPC's in a sort of character creation and place them in their house or guildhall. Maybe the creater could even write a few lines of text the NPC could say when spoken to, so they can share their story :D
This way everybody could have a NPC maid or cook wandering around their house or guildhall and fill it with life even when there are not so many players online. Maybe you could even send them to protect your carriages like mercenaries and equip them with some gear you dont use yourself.
Of course you would have to pay a certain amount of money to create a NPC, and if they were to be able to fight, balancing could be pretty hard, but i still think its a fun idea.

Let me know what you think of it.

  • I agree, being that the players will determine the shape of the world; having a system in place like this would be a unique system for the mmo genre. I really like the idea.

    Perhaps we would even be able to have player created quests to correspond with player made NPC's.
  • Thanks for the feedback!

    Haven't thought of player created quests yet, pretty neat idea. Although you would have to be able to place your NPC's outside of your own proberty to do that, which could lead to random NPC's offering dumb quests flooding the streets but there is probably a way to avoid that.
  • I do like this idea definitely makes it more life like , however to Create a "NPC" I don't know about that. Buy a "NPC" like hire some "NPC" you found looking for work I think that would be cool and when it comes to customizing a "NPC" choose what clothes they wear that be awesome, but to create a human "NPC" and choose what type of eye color/nose they will have I call that Witch Craft!!! O.o

    Just my thoughts though
  • I just thought this would bring some variaty. Usually when you find guards or some of the sort in guild halls they all look the same :D
    Furthermore you could add details that fit their story you created, for example a scar they got in battle :3

    I can't fault that! lol yeah seeing the same "NPC" in everyone house dose get old and dull
  • Yea as far as player created questing perhaps they could implement a player bounty board outside of town halls or outside of certain nodes. Where players can place quest for certain resources and or dungeon runs with their own custom rewards.
