Storyline?

**Archived** Joaxin's Relic would have been a series of single player maps intended to be mage150's version of Drakan2 - an alternative to the official sequel. Forum closed for now as the project is on hold indefinitely.

Storyline?

Post by Arokhs Twin »

What is the basic overview of the storyline? Are you planning it to be another so-called Drakan2 for the PC or setting the story in some other time for example after The Ancient's Gates?

What I can give you right now as definate is that I have a nice STOMP Sequence at the beginning that explains what <b>really</b> happens to rynn before D:TAG ;) The whole game will pretty much be before D:TAG I'm guessing. For now I am guessing it will be a small amount of maps (3-5) but they will be twice as large as even wartok canyons :). So far no FPS issues from any of my testers so I keep moving on.

So its a prequel to Drakan: TAG? I guess there was a 2 or 3 day gap between games so its interesting to have a series that explains what happened during that time.

Not to be rude but I wouldn't suppose 2 or 3 days would be enough if you know what I mean :D

Just hit 5 MB of content and rising :). Last night the voice actor and I sat down for a few hours perfecting the Intro narration and recording a rough draft, than synching it into the STOMP Sequence. One of my favorite lines that sums up the story is

<b>"It's a long story. A story missing for ages from history. One that did not change our world of Drakan." </b>

I know alot of people are going to be confused from the narration and the movie but I think once everyone sees the ending it will all come together :)

Hey, Mage. I'll bet you're a busy fella, but is there any word on progress?
Curiously, you've shown up twice in my dreams in the past few months. Once as a name on a screen as some girls watched an instructional vid concerning graphics construction, and the other time, in person. Probably only because I had seen your picture.
I'm hoping for all these new levels... yours, Assassin's... Douglas442's...
Good luck finding time and achieving in these levels EXACTLY what you were going for.
