Nah, I'll make monsters later. And the dragon is a shopkeeper, in a door. But there will definitely be enemy dragons

ohhh, okay. And I would like to suggest adding a few small dungeons non-quest related around the map, on orher small islands, underground. (etc.)

Man don't worry about it. He seems to know what he's doing and I'm sure he wouldn't forget to add sidequests and dungeons to go with them. :)

Yeah, dungeons are awesome! Although they are very hard to make. I didn't have much time to work today, so all I got done was the first dungeon. I also figured out some more plot points though, which is also a kind of progress. Also, I want your opinion on something. I might want to add a guild, which may or may not be essential to the main quest. My current ideas for guilds are: Gamblers guild, Dragon Slayers Guild, Pickpockets Guild, and Gardeners Guild. Please tell me which of those you think is/are best, or just share any guild ideas you think are better.

yeah, that's starting to become one of my favorites too. But maybe someone else has a better idea

You shouldn't make a guild. IMHO :P

Looks great, keep up the good work!

definetly either "Dragon Slayers" guild, or "Gardeners Guild". (gardeners guild just sounds funny)

I like the pick pockets guild as well, I feel like there was no purpose to stealth in the main game

0.o didn't make much sense using stealth, sure you could make money but you could make more at cards in MATRAS. (the npcs only gave like 20 gold) so i agree with prickett, stealth advantages would be nice but i still like dragon slayers best

A Magic University or a stealth guild would be good- magic has no purpose except in Environmental Magic once you finish the core game but stealth doesn't have one in general.

Well, I'm pretty sure that hol2 has a magic university instead of a guild, and I want something new. I do agree that gardeners guild sounds stupid, but it would make sense in game and it wouldn't be too hard to think of initiation quests. Dragon slayers guild does seem like the winner, but because I'm mostly not doing npcs and quests yet, there is still time to decide. I also need help coming up with puzzle-ish things for dungeons. I find that lever combination lock things aren't fun, because the only thing you can do is guess, there is no skill.

Try to take some inspiration from Zelda if you seem stuck on dungeon puzzles, those games had some great puzzles.

I haven't really been working on this lately as winter break ended and I kind of lost inspiration. I still plan on finishing the expansion, but progress won't be as fast as it had been.

Sounds epic! I will play that as soon as it comes out, just a suggestion, have guilds to join depending on alignment.

After a long beak, I've begun working on the expansion some more. There won't be much real progress though until summer. For now, I'll mostly just be working on terrain and stuff.
