An interesting idea. Event Blog for characture.

Discussion in 'UHall' started by RavenWinterHawk, Aug 27, 2008.

  1. Alright a blog might not be the right word.

    But here is the gist.

    To support in game events that are run by players...

    A player could have some sort of viewable blog if turned on that tracked things like.

    Monster kills.
    Places traveled.
    Items picked up.

    All with a time and date stamp.


    What would it be used for.

    Well one application might be for a gathering of players that enter a contest.

    Kill 10 mongbats.
    Kill 10 dragons.
    Kill 10 liches.

    Might be the contest.

    Players could leave can come back and have their activity blog viewed.

    A winner could be declared.

    Might be a boat race.

    Start at vesper.
    Hit ice island. Dock. Talk to player "whatever"
    Get back on boat.
    Sell to next destination for win.

    The blog would track sextant points each time you enter and leave the boat.
    It would show you talked to a player.

    Anyway something like that.

    You obviously knew what was meant, so does it matter?

    Yes, I agree, lets stop educating people.
     
  4. No need for your smart remark.
    I knew what it meant and i felt like posting the correct spelling.

    Sounds like a scavenger hunt/quest. Not sure how this would be done but sounds like fun.
     
  6. You would have a blog type thing that shows what your character accomplished. People could create their own scenarios and use the blog thingies to see if goals were accomplished.
     
  7. Mr raven by all means i wasn't trying to put you down in anyway.
    Just in case you felt that way.
    Thank you.

    Well I just read a different post by you where you spelled "theory" wrong. Maybe you should be double checking your own posts.

    That sounds an awful lot like the Achievement system World of Warcraft is adding in the next expansion.

    I like the concept of it keeping track of your major achievements like boss kills, collecting pets, quests completed, boss kills etc theres like 500 or so if I remember right.

    Something like this would be nice for UO as well like you said above. Maybe something like a "killed all champ bosses" "Killed all peerless" "completed Doom Gauntlet multiple times" etc etc. Type thing.
