The Carriage Of Lost Things

The Carriage Of Lost Things

 

From the Diary of an unknown adventurer…

I haven’t told anybody about this, as remembering it hurts my head…

Oh diary, oh why couldn’t  we have just walked away from this horrible thing, the memory of it leaves a hollow hole in the pit of my stomach and I cant get my companions face out of my head… his pale…empty… face.

My late companion and I were searching for the fabled “Golden Epel” for our dear lord Nelrissa The White. The lord ordered us to find this magic fruit by any means necessary. Apparently it was important but…I don’t know much about it. I just find things,  I don’t read about them or,  look into them. Anything besides their location anyway…. 

    As we were traveling through the Forest Of Puppeted Plants, there was a clearing…I think it was a clearing anyway… and as we entered it suddenly music started playing all around us….oh the music…such calming music…. coming from everywhere around us…there was a carriage….yes…a  carriage I think. This carriage was in the middle of the clearing with a window on it, at first the window looked empty but as we approached it a strange old lady appeared in the window and I think she said “Hello Young Adventurer” to me..or was it to my companion…not that it really matters anymore. But that music, that music got louder,  though it didn’t feel like it was coming from the carriage. It was just coming from everywhere…such strange music…such a strange thing to describe to anyone who hasn’t heard it…

She faced towards me and asked “Are you looking for something lost young man?” as she leaned closer to me in a strange manner, I of course answered yes and explained to her what the Golden Epel looked like  and that we needed it for our lord…I also backed away a little…  She simply nodded her head and said “So you find things…I find things too, lost things, are you looking for something lost?” I of course answered yes, for it was lost in this very forest. She then…I think, though my memory is getting fuzzy as we speak…proceeded to say again that she “Finds lost things.”, and was “The Keeper Of Lost Things”, this struck me as strange, for though I had seen magic before and strange witches in the woods… I had never seen or heard of any magic like this. So I did what any foolish adventurer would and I asked her “Can you find me the Golden Epel” …she smiled for a moment…such a strange smile…as though her teeth were amber…so yellow…so strange…ugh ….my head. And she pulled out a Golden Epel, “Is this what you seek young man?”….I knew what it looked like from sketches and this was it. I was sure of it! I answered “Yes!” excitedly and I asked her if I could have it.,.I think…and she just smiled again..and said “I will need something as payment…something that is valuable, powerful…something that can not be truly lost..only taken or bled out”…I think I was confused at this point…and my companion chimed in…”We have gold..so do you want gold?” The lady simply chuckled…such a horrible chuckle…”No young rogue…i have no need for money.  People lose money all the time, I want blood, I want your blood!” and as I watched I heard a horrible noise…and the music…the music started fading…as my companion fell to the ground…pale…pale and dead…. and the item we sought… laying where the carriage used to be, the carriage gone. The lady gone…my companion…gone. 

There is a blood stain on the diary here…

 

RLDR News

Hey guys its Michael, I wrote this story as a way to supplement my games lore, if you liked it, it would be awesome if you shared it I am by no means the greatest writer ever, but hopefully this story was at least entertaining and a bit dark, as it should be, magic is going well, I just finished most of the runes I needed for the first pass on the magic system, now I just need to come up with a way to and write the UI for players to apply these runes to items.

I think i’m going to do more of these supplemental lore stories if you folks like it. Let me know in the comments, follow me on twitter @Untrustedlife and keep playing roguelikes! (Hopefully eventually mine 😛 ).

The feel of the game

So, Roguelegends:Dark Realms (Or just Dark Realms, which is the short name) is a dark fantasy deterministic roguelike game.  A problem I have been having lately while working on it, is that it didn’t “feel” like a dark fantasy game, in terms of color scheme, so today I have been experimenting with different color schemes, hopefully this will be customizable later on in the games development.

When you are making a game that is supposed to “feel” a certain way even a roguelike color is a huge problem, if it is too bright and you are trying to have creepiness in the game it doesnt work. One game that does this really well is the game Frozen depths

It has a very “cold” looking color scheme that fits the game, alot of blue and “cold red” colors. in my case I am making a “dark , unsettling” fantasy game, so I need a color pallet that is a bit stranger and a bit darker. So I am thinking greens, blues and grays.

I found  a great website,

http://www.rapidtables.com/web/color/RGB_Color.htm

Which lets you test out color schemes, and get RGB values.

What I have come up with now is something that feels a little bit more unsettling.

Much better right?

This is much “darker” looking then the old color scheme, but it is subject to change, what do you guys think?

Next up is to make fire damage have a special ability like poison damage does, then add a deterministic dodging system, and perhaps a stealth system.
