An Idea by AK (in General)

I kinda got this idea from thinking about L.O.R.D. the other day (An old BBS game)

This is my idea.
A random event. 1/1000 or 10000 or what ever something cool happens instead of a fight.

"You trip and fall and smash your arm, while rubbing your tender arm you notice your tripped over a buried treasure chest. Upon digging it up and opening if you gain 10000 gold."

Anyways these random occurrences would always be better then a fight, you could gain gold, xp even items? or what ever but at the same time would happen so little to it would not affect actual game play.

I just think it might help the pressing of enter and add a little joy to the grind of fighting. And you can always take old ones out and put new ones in so they would not become repetitive or boring.

Anyways post what you think of my idea.

it has been a while, but similar ideas have been brought up before. the one i liked best was mine (big shocker i know) where we replaced store camping with reward item drops on about the same introduction rate to the game as the store spawns were. instead the boring auctioneer route was taken. ; (

i still like the idea though and would love to see something implemented.

Darn didn't work quite the way I wanted. I don't know how to add photos.

Lol, I think Gogetta is for BBCode too ;D

And this gets my vote too, but I don't know how to put a picture on here

Gogetta - on an HTML forum, that would be <img src= ""</img> and in HTML mode rather than Plain Text mode.

That's correct if you're using a BBCode forum, though!

(I don't see anything wrong with having a BBCode option added, though I also don't know how difficult that would be to implement)

And yeah, I'd like to see something done that would enhance gameplay beyond "set up a fightlist and hold down the Enter key until 160 turns into 0" too.

Sounds like something Jon would classify as a FORS; then again, there are a few FORS that i think could actually be good ideas if refined.

Vote Yes for this one! :)

Not likely to happen. But LoRD. Oh lord, LoRD. Awesome game. ;)

No one else likes it?You could also do other rewards too.

Like "You find a fountain and have a drink, you feel refreshed...5 more BA for today!"
"You see a hut and decide to check it out. As it turns out a old blacksmith lives there and fixes your worn sword..bonus 1 to your x damage"
Or have a 1 and 1 million chance to get a Million dollars.

Or what ever the people making the things decide to do.

I just really think that it would be exciting to get one of these things every few thousand fights.

I think happening about once a week with less than 1 in a trillion chance of 3 a week would be about right. (with that many user clicking every week, even 1 in a trillion is bound to happen some day).

I'd be for adding "events" of some kind, but not by random encounter.

Randomness is bad. Any reward needs to come by way of something the player accomplished, not just generated randomly and doled out to those who hit the lucky number.

Actually, AK, I've been wanting to do this exact thing for a while. I just have to do other things first.

Soul Eater May 7 2009 6:39 PM EDT

I've played other games where they had something similar to it, I'd be doing something then all of a sudden I'd find a chest and get a rare item, it made the game more fun.
