[SUGGESTION] Story or Book?

#1
As soon as I joined these forums, I sought the development of a story for the game, but maybe this could be the wrong way to go, maybe instead of a story, Xonotic could be an anthology, a book full of stories.

If you are familiar with the 'Battle for Wesnoth,' you will also be aware of the scenario download feature. Basically I was thinking that if Xonotic had the capability to load individual story packages, it would allow for easy singleplayer episodes.

Just a thought...:p

True true. I like it, but is a campaign already in the works? It could become the starting story.

Im not sure, there are LOTS of stories circling the forums! but yea, doesn't mean there can't be a main canonical xonotic story, it just means that there can be a lot more!

Suggestion:

We make a community written book then sell it to help fund the webhosting etc.

It could be a collection of lore, stories etc. all about the Xonotic universe. Once the Xonotic universe is stitched together anyway...

reading the first two lines i knew wesnoth was involved Big Grin!
im kind of against any plot or anthology or story or... whatnot.
i mean, its more like an competitive game which doesnt really need a plot.

but - indeed - an anthology would be awesome. not necessarily needs to be done tho.

I disagree. Having a story never hurts. Plus, a story gives more identity to the game. Places the action in time and space. Just think about Prince of Persia (original). Awesome story, awesome game. But if it didn't have a story, you would be roaming the castle halls like crazy just to rescue a princess you know nothing about.

I agree that this is a FPS, but a story is always good.
