MultiMedia Lore Love for the New Players

Post by Badger (mp: Mercy ) » Sat May 17, 2014 12:56 am

... short version, I see alot of new players that haven't gotten the lore - and yes it's there, but yo have to get their interest for them to bother looking for it -
a little immersion helps - sots-verse is damn rich - and mood... mood.

So - using already-existing media - and existing trigger - I'd suggest, when 'first contact' is made in a game, and the cute tentacle event blurb triggers, just add to that to play the video introduction to that race - sots intro (humans), Murder ( for the crow), and of course my personal favorite, Born of Blood.
I can't imagine the video files are particulary large, and being pre-existing assets...?
unless there's an ownership coflict there.

Anyway - it's a thought. I often tell new players to watch those to get a 'feel'

Perhaps it could be integrated with the SOTSopeadia, with a notification that 'history of contact' between our races has been unlocked?

It is not pronounced, "en-ni-ma(t)-(tic)-doc-tor"
