Expanding Randoms

I'll expand on this idea a little later, but I have to head out. Wanted to get it down before I forgot about it.


Random mobs! Same concept as random equipment, but with random mobs popping up.

It'd be cool to see a random Goblin roaming around, or something similar to that.

Alright, I promised to expand on this idea, and here it is. I hadn't put a terrible amount of thought into this. It sort of just popped up in my head as I was talking to Syriac about installing my new connector zone.

Initial thoughts:
Random mobs, I think, would add another variable to an already dynamic game. Right now, other than roaming mobs, like Kahn the Banker, there is not a lot of diversity out there. You get a specific range of mobs for a particular zone; as is the norm. However, the fun thing, for me, about this game is that there is a large amount of code that you really don't see in many other games. Let's continue building that brand. Of course, I say this knowing it won't be me writing the code. lol

Dynamics:
Time specific mobs -> Bandits and Rogues that travel roads at night.
-> This would likely require a new area flag (roadway) so that these particular mobs would pop in the right spots.
-> New mob flag (bandit)
-> Players could receive some sort of reward for returning the corpse to the magistrate. This could be a fun new bounty system. Quest Points?
-> These mobs would try to steal from players traveling the roads.


I'm sure other ideas will come up, but The Kraken is adjusting my focus for me. I can't really think right now. If you have others, please add to or discuss new ideas.

Definitely like the idea and it has crossed my mind in the past. I'd like to grow the Realm a bit more so we don't end up with a ton of mobs in the limited spaces that we have now. I also had the idea of random areas where rooms are generated and connected completely randomly. Maybe one of these days...

Random areas? That is a interesting idea.

My concept is to sort of do an Elder Scrolls style of area building. A lot of different smaller dungeon type areas littered throughout and between the larger, more game driven areas. Random Dungeons would be awesome.
