How to make new stories!


kEs_Ha

Recommended Posts

Now i know that many of you want new classes with new stories etc....but i think that it will be hard if not imposible to do this without screwing up the class balance. Instead what im proposing is to create new stories for the same charecters! for instence when you start the game you choose your class and then chose what story you want to play, you can pick the original story of every character OR pick a totally new one.

For example:

 

Jedi knight:

 

Original story: Start on tython train under master Orgus Din, become the hero of tython bla,bla,bla........

 

New story: You and your master are on a mission on Alderan to escort a powerful nobleman, when you are sudenly ambushed by a group of powerful force wielding sith who kill your master and render you unconscious. You wake up on Koriban and your lightsaber is gone! The sith use you as a training toll they force you to fight beast and acolytes! As time pases you become weaker, your body is exhausted from all the neglect and fighting. One beutiful female sith acolytes namned Arma takes note of you. She is surprised that you are still alive. She confronts your cage and starts asking you qustions like how come you are still alive and depending on your alignment choice you can answer:

1. Im at peace, the force keeps me alive (light)

2. I live so that i can slauther evry last single sith. (dark)

3. f..k of you sith scum! (dark)

regardless of your answer she is intrigued by you and the two of you form a bond. She bring you food and water and you asist her mentally through the force when she faces her challanges on koriban (like a Coach)! you mentor her through her training and can convince her to align to the light side or the dark. Either way when the time comes for you to face a sith lord (because the sith on korriban have decided that you are more truble then you are worth) she poisens the sith lord you are suposed to fight and you kill him quite easily. The acolytes waching the fight scatter in fear, you use this opportunity to flee together with Arma back to tython and the jedi council.

 

Sith Inqusitor:

New story : You wake up on a tomb on drumand kaas a grupp of dead sith lords surround you. you have no memory of how you got there or who you are. The sith lords tell you that you are the only hope for the empire. During your time in the tomb the sith lords contsantly test you, both physically and mentally for exaple: they will force you to make light or dark side choices evry time you make the wrong one they will turture you etc..... Ones you have completed all your tests and leave the tomb you are kidnapped by a cult cult that take you to korbian where you will complete your training. the cult is called the "followers of the one". They belive that a powerful sith (who is not the empror) will lead the sith to victory

 

I love SWTOR (mainly for the stories) and i hope we will se both new ones and continuation for the old.

Okey remember that this is just a sugestion. You will get back to the original planet around level 7-8 so you can do heroics build your lightsaber ets.......

 

I have a lot of other ideas concerning new stories but i think these 2 will suffice for now! Please fell free to coment or come with your own idees or sugestions! And try to keep the conversation civil! :)

 

Sorry for my bad english :o

I would love new stories for all the characters, I think a what if sort of scenario for an entire 3 chapter setup like how they did the original would be best. I would love to have a BH be an actual mandalorian and not just some hired ******e.

 

True mandalorians are long gone. Chalk it up to Mandalore the Ultimate. :cool:

Yea but i think the stories need to be NEW, they need to feel new which is why i think a change in scenario is importaned espesylly in the begining! :) I agree with you it would be cool to start out as a mandalorian!

I think it would be better to expand the stories we have going now or create new classes and give them a three chapter story, rather than this idea.

 

It's not a bad idea, but it then requires people to roll up a class they already have. Not only that, then they have to roll the same class on the other fraction to see their story.

 

No. Either more stories for the class we have, or a new class all together, and I prefer the later, as I still hope for a lightsaber/blaster pistol dual wielder force user! Make her a space pirate!

I absolutly want a continuation of the current stories!!!! But eventually those stories will come to an end and then i would really love new stories! As a said its the stories that makes the game UNIK!!!!!!!!!!! I think that making new classes is hard if not imposible because of the whole class balance think, but i wouldent mind a completly new story on either one of the current characters!

 

PS thanks for your reply!

Would you be willing to pay for new stories? Serious question. I have this sneaking suspicion a lot of people would expect it all for free because, after all, they are subscribers. If you're willing to pay for new story content, I think the idea could be pursued. If you expect new content for free, I don't think it is going to happen.

Thanks for the reply :)

The problem is you're not suggesting something that's for SWTOR or that would "save" SWTOR, you're suggesting SWTOR2.

 

Im just sugesting expanding what makes the game unik! i reallydo think that more story would add to the lore and bring in more custumers!

I don't know what the story would be about but Trooper could easily get higher military ranks.

 

Master titles were given too soon I think for Jedi's. I don't know what new ones they could do. Unless of course future content won't be including new titles.

It could include new titles! but its the story im more interested about. You could start out as an ordinary citisen whose planet is invided by the empire! You start figtning a gurilla/partizan war with them that eventually catches the attaenchen of the republic and suddenly you are a solder that works for SIS or something similuar.

 

JUST A SUGESTION!

I guess you could create a new class and call it Dark Jedi or Fallen Jedi for the first one, and Dark Mystic or something for the second one.

 

And I'm sure the existing population would want to try the new classes, and you might even get back some players. But I am not really sure that new class stories is what will save SWTOR. There's a big market of gamers SWTOR wants to attract, and they're already aware that SWTOR has stories.

Yes but the probelm is that when u finnish the stories many people leave. I strated playing this game with 5 other firends, after a year 3 of them left cause they palyed all the stories on both sides and then the game was just onather regulur boring MMO :((((

 

SO I really belive that new stories are vital for the game to stay alive as well as story cuntionation! :)

*Cough*

 

You might be looking at the real issue right there. The stories are interesting, but they're a garnish over traditional MMORPG controls and gameplay. People will still play that, look at me, I'm still playing myself, but it's not going to draw people away from other MMORPGs that are done in a similar style.

 

It's layering bandaids when you need heart surgery.

u are right!!!! and the story is what sets it apart from evrything else out there! The reason people left swtor after a few moths was because they finnished their stories. To be honest i love the game but im suprised that bioware dident invest more int the story they just copied evrything else.......

I'm not sure I'm coming across clearly.

 

The stories are what set this game apart from other MMORPGS. This is a Star Wars RPG. The stories should be notably different from non-Star Wars stories. It's also a Bioware game with a signature Bioware style.

 

My point is, is it ONLY the stories that should be different? And if more were different, say, if gameplay were different from other MMORPGs in a fun and engaging way, would there be more interest? Would more players be retained if they felt like the game itself without the stories was special, instead of losing interest after the stories are done?

 

I can guarantee that you can't produce stories fast enough to counter people losing interest in a traditional MMORPG if they're going to do that.

Yes you are right! and i agree with u that more things need to improve! however i am a story fan and I and most other people than still play the game play it because of the story. Eventually the stories are going to get boring some people can only play it once other people (like me and most other guys i know that play the game) play it multiple time. Light side dark side diffrent romacne interest etc...... Yes they should improve the gamplay but if they want their base to stick around then we need more stories! Makeb was good but it was to short.

 

PS would love new warzones :)

A second class story, unlocked after the first is completed, does seem like it'd give more incentive to level more alts, especially another alt of the same class. I'm sure that some people who've leveled Scoundrels don't want to level Gunslingers, too, just because it'd be the same story all over again.

 

It might require more work than BioWare is willing to put in, though, as well as more money than EA is willing to spend, and I'm not entirely sure the return on that investment would be worth it for them. It'd keep people who are here just for the stories around a little longer, but I don't know if that's quite enough to make it worthwhile.

1. Thanks for ur reply

 

2. The Main reason people play this gase is because of the story so if they want more people to come and more importantly the power base to stick around then they need to expand the story!

 

3. The only way that is gonna happen is if the community voice their belives, concerns etc.......which is why i posted the link to this thread on severeal others!
