In the War Seas, there will be warring kingdoms. Hurting one kingdom will get you hated by another. Likewise, it will also get you liked by another kingdom. Here are some basic features/benefits for taking sides:
Add kingdom specific reputation. The reputation would vary per kingdom and would be displayed as a small bar about the basic reputation bar. The lowest island reputation would be exiled while the highest would be respected. Being respected in one kingdom would potentially make you exiled in another. If you are exiled, you can still eventually be respected in that kingdom, but it would take an extremely long time (basically going from demon to legendary hero while having 20 criminal records).
Kingdom specific reputation would be affected by various things: It could be lightly influenced by doing small tasks like helping the kingdom’s economy grow by selling things from that kingdom, or it could be heavily influenced by participating in kingdom wars.
Having a high reputation in one island would make you get discounts, galleons, and other benefits.
Kingdoms would have their own armies. Similar to the AG in AA, you could join that army, which would affect your kingdom reputation. You can only be in one kingdom army at a time. Rising ranks and benefits are similar to the AG (basically hurt enemy kingdoms).
If you are in a kingdom’s army and your kingdom reputation is max, you could get a special reward (curses). That’s if Vetex makes curses obtainable which he probably won’t . You could also get lost spells, lost scrolls, and maybe primodial stuff.
If your kingdom reputation is neutral, but your level and bravery stat is high, kingdoms will attempt to buy you off.
If your part of the opposing army that’s against a kingdom (and your well known), the opposing kingdoms would hate you. You would have to pay more for things in that kingdom, that kingdom would place a bounty on you, and they would send their own ships and curse users against you.
Yes. I will ally to glue kingdom so when I turn into Grand Glue Royal Knight they give me Glue Magic scroll
10/10 you 3 have my vote.
Author wants a diplomatic system in-game, with rewards, wars and kingdom reputation.
My take on this:
I believe region wars were once planned, however, due to the removal of Dynamic NPCs I’m not sure if that’ll be possible anymore.
Since every kingdom will have an army. Vetex could shrug this off as “Lowers game performance, rejected.”
I like the idea of having an entire diplomacy system in-game.
The biggest thing about this is how exactly the grand navy would be implemented as peacekeepers. Maybe there is two or three kingdoms separate from them that act alone while the rest of the territories are under Grand Navy jurisdiction. This system would still apply but one of them would be Grand Navy reputation.
One thing to also specify should be what happens to your overall reputation.
Grand Navy? More like cooler named AG.
I remember that GN doesn’t have that much power, so maybe it could just be considered another kingdom?
Maybe we could have kingdoms capturing islands too to increase territory, like a quest. Just like you could “protect” islands as AG in AA.
