Stretch goals

Jeux de salon

Jeux de salon (tavern games) are games that are played in player-built taverns or in-node taverns.[5]. Some will be dice games, others will be card games; and some will be less savory.[6]

The idea behind the tavern games is to create another social interface. This is where players that are loving the RP aspect of MMORPGS- they want to walk into a tavern and meet new people and play games.[7]Steven Sharif
  • These games will involve aspects of both chance and skill.[6]
  • They must be played between 2 or more people.[6]
  • Players will be able to wager in-game currency against other players.[6]
    • The developers are considering a secondary currency for tavern games that would enable purchase of cosmetic items through a secondary currency market.[7]
    • There may be a ladder system that contributes to gaining this currency based on placement on the ladder.[7]
    • The alternative is to use the regular currency (gold).[7]
  • A portion of the income from the game goes to the tavern owner or node.[5][6]
  • Parlor games will vary based on the predominant race of a node.[7][6][8]
  • There may be unique games that can be acquired through adventuring in the world.[7]
  • Tavern owners dictate the table cost of parlor games. The node's mayor dictates the tax rate that applies when money exchanges hands.[9][10]
When a player wants to engage in a game, they may sit at a table, and another player may sit down with them. At that point the gameplay layer for the mini game will open in a user interface window. Depending on the type of game.[10]Steven Sharif

Jeux de salon were a Kickstarter stretch goal.[11]

Cute small pets

Cute small pets were a Kickstarter stretch goal.[14]

Group mounts

Les monture de groupe ont été débloqué durant la campagne de financement participatif Kickstarter.[15][16]

  • Ces montures seront de la taille d'un éléphant, voir plus large encore.[17]
  • Les montures de groupe seront plus rares et plus difficiles à obtenir.[18]
  • Il y aura une limite au nombre de passagers (pour chaque type de monture de groupe).[18]
  • Des systèmes d'armes spécifiques pourront être présent à différents endroits sur une monture de groupe.[18]

La monture de groupe sera un objectif difficile à atteindre, mais une fois atteint, les joueurs y trouveront beaucoup de plaisirs et un vrai point pivotant pour la façon de jouer. Alors l'idée principale est de les rendre grandiose.[17]Steven Sharif

Backer only weapon skins

Kickstarter backers will receive a unique weapon skin.[19]

  • Usable on all types of weapons.
  • Include subtle and tasteful glow/particle effects.

Enhanced naval content

Navale content refers to content above and below the sea.[22][23]

Enhanced naval content was unlocked as part of the $1,500,000 Kickstarter stretch goal.[28]

There will not initially be naval content (such as a Dark Lake) in the Underrealm, but this may be something that gets added in future expansions.[29]

There won't be class abilities that are specific to naval content, but some utility skills (such as underwater breathing) may be of some benefit.[30]

Backer only armor skin

All Kickstarter backers receive a unique armor skin set.[2]

The Underrealm

Alpha-0 Underrealm environment.[31]

One of the aspects of the Lore behind the Tulnar was that in the pantheon of gods that exist- having foretold the future through the Goddess of Fate to the Goddess of Creation- these areas in the Underrealm were created in to allow for refuge for which the gods knew would be left behind that couldn't make it to Sanctus. So that was a pre-thought there in the creation of the Underrealm to facilitate that realm where refugees could seek.[32]Steven Sharif

Alpha-0 Underrealm Sharptooth cat mob concept art.[31]

We plan to have the Underrealm really pervasive throughout the game itself, a part of the open world. It will introduce some unique elements such as the type of monsters you see, the type of crops you can grow and houses you can have.[33]Steven Sharif

The Underrealm is a rich environment where bio-luminescence abounds in the fauna and flora that exist here. These deep caverns and underground valleys provide new destinations for civilization to develop. Bringing the node system into the depths of the world may awaken darker creatures than the surface.[34]

  • The Underrealm is estimated to be 100 km2 in area.[35] It is not contiguous space across the entire map. There will be areas that are obstructed by chasms or other features.[36][37]
The expansiveness of the Underrealm itself is quite large. It does persist across across a lot of the playable game area that's above ground. So there are alternatives in the Underrealm for passages and traversal throughout the world.[38]Steven Sharif
  • The location of Underrealm entrances throughout the world is focused around natural geographic choke-points that exist above ground. This provides alternate subterranean routes that can be used by caravans, raids, and other player activities.[36][37]
The Underrealm is intending to be bespoke segments of Underrealm territory that are available around areas of choke-point in the world map that are above ground, which are provided for caravan transit across the world. So those caravans as they're approaching these choke-points on land, they will have alternate route options to go down into the Underrealm and to try to traverse that space, as opposed to the choke-points.[36]Steven Sharif
  • Not all entrances to the Underrealm will be open at the same time. This can shift dynamically (based on node states) that cause different routes to open up, which may be more or less advantageous than other routes.[37]

Backer only aquatic mount

Tidesnapper is an aquatic mount that has the ability to glide through the water.[41]

Organisations sociales

Les Organisations sociales sont des moyens pour les joueurs d'interagir avec le monde autour d'eux d'une manière différente. Il s'agit de créer des micro-communautés au sein du jeu.[43]

L'idée générale de ces sociétés est qu'elles sont un mécanisme de progression qui ne doit pas dépendre de votre niveau de progression. Ce sont des voies de progression différentes auxquelles les joueurs peuvent prendre part. Si vous ne voulez pas quitter un nœud dans votre expérience de jeu et vous voulez autant de choses à faire que possible dans cette ville, elles offrent ces choses. Or, certaines quêtes peuvent vous entraîner en dehors de la ville pour, vous savez, chasser ou rechercher des choses, mais vous pourriez aussi parfaitement être une personne qui est un marchand et les achète à d'autres voyageurs plutôt que d'aller le faire vous-même. Nous voulons offrir aux joueurs une méthode de progression différente ; et ces systèmes abritent ces avantages.[44]Steven Sharif

Les Organisations sociales fonctionnent un peu comme les factions, mais sans les mécaniques de marquage.[45]

Parfois les objectifs de deux organisations peuvent ne pas être alignés et il y aura alors un conflit, mais ça ne sera pas comme si tous les membres de la Guildes des Marchands seront en guerre avec tous ceux de la Guilde des Voleurs.[45]Jeffrey Bard

Les Organisations sociales sont gérées pas des PNJs, cependant il y aura des rangs que certains membres peuvent atteindre et leur octroyer de l'influence sur l'organisation.[46]

Backer only dye set

Dyes are one-time use items that apply a cosmetic color change across all dyeable items that are equipped on a player's character (paper-doll).[47][48][49]

  • Two dye channels are provided per character that together influence up to 50% of the gear that is equipped by that character.[47]
    • The first dye channel is for lower grade dyes that influence 10 to 20% of armor appearance on that character.[47]
    • The second dye channel is for higher tier dyes that influence up to 30% of armor appearance on that character.[47]
  • The original design allowed individual items to be dyed with different dyes.[48]
One of the things that we want to do- again talking about player agency- is we want to give them the ability to kind of change the appearance of their armor sets that they're wearing; and the way we've approached the dye solution is through a channeled system. We have a two channel dye system where the first channel is a lower grade dye that it has influence over between 10 to 20 percent of your overall armor appearance; and then the second channel dye is a higher tier dye that you have to acquire; and by doing so you can influence the remaining thirty percent- up to thirty percent of that armor appearance: So up to a total of fifty percent influence that can occur across all the pieces that you wear. Now one unique approach to the way we're doing this dye system is we're not allowing individual dyes to be applied on individual items, but instead we keep a cohesion across the set by applying that dye channel to your character; and when you equip a piece with your overall character it will assume that dye channel from your paper doll. So you apply the dyes to your character and when you equip a piece of item it will take that dye and it will influence the channel over that particular piece so that it comes into alignment. And what the reason that we're doing that is there's a lot of options with regards to customization for your character appearance, whether it be through transmog, through costumes, through mixing and matching sets and pieces that you can wear; and what we want to avoid is the rainbow effect where these pieces do not look good together and it creates the clown that's walking down the street.[47]

The Kickstarter dyes are sets of unique colors that are not obtainable by players who did not participate in Crowdfunding. These dyes are not usable as normal dyes are. Instead they are used to override the color of another dye obtained in game.[50]

  • They are assigned to a character from a user's account management page.[50]
  • They do not expire, so they may be used to continually override dye colors.[50]
  • Once a dye has been overridden it becomes a bound dye to that character, so the colors cannot be sold for in-game benefit.[50]
  • When an item is sold or transferred, color changes are reverted.[50]

New Underrealm race

Underrealm concept art.[34]

La société Tulnar a davantage un système proche des castes, où les caractéristiques physiques que vous présentez, où la situation de vos ancêtres et de votre lignée entre les races qui se sont associées pour créer les Tulnar, déterminent dans une certaine mesure votre ordre dans le système de castes. Donc quand les joueurs vont créer leurs personnages et déterminer s'ils vont avoir de fortes influences reptiliennes, mammifères ou humanoïdes ; c'est ce qui va en quelque sorte déterminer leur accueil par les différents PNJs autant que quand ils interagissent avec les PJs Tulnar.[51]Steven Sharif

Les Tulnar sont une race jouable dans Ashes of Creation.[52][53] Les Tulnar ont fui vers l'Underrealm pour échapper à la Corruption qui a frappé Verra.[54]

  • Les Tulnars sont une combinaison des quatre races principales et de plusieurs races mineures abandonnées sur Verra après l'apocalypse.[55][56][53]
    • Il avait précédemment été indiqué de trois races différentes.[57]
  • Tulnar signifie « Les Oubliés ».[53]
  • Les Tulnar ne sont pas limités à l'Underrealm (il n'y a pas de factions).[58]
  • Les Tulnar mangent beaucoup de choses ![59]
  • Les Tulnar ne sont pas un résultat de la corruption.[60]

Les Tulnar furent-ils le résultat de la corruption dans leur création, ou était-ce purement une sorte de croisement entre les multiples races mineures et majeures qui existaient dans l'Underrealm après l'apocalypse ? Ils ne sont pas un résultat de la corruption. Donc il n'y a pas de corruption qui a été prise en compte durant leur création.[60]Steven Sharif

The Tulnar race will be in place before Alpha-2. Concepts and early works are expected at that time.[61]

Backer only mount barding

Récompense cosmétique d'équipement de montures pour avoir financer au niveau chef des Hommes .[62]

Les équipements de montures (aussi référencés comme selles) sont des armures pour montures dans Ashes of Creation. Les équipements de montures ont un concept similaires aux armures des joueurs.[63]

  • Plus le niveau d'équipement sera élevé, plus l'apparence sera belle.[63]
  • Les équipements comporteront de multiples pièces qui pourront être équipées. Chaque pièces augmentera les statistiques de la monture, comme par exemple ses points de vie ou sa vitesse.[64][63]
  • Les apparences d'équipements de montures ne peuvent s'appliquer que sur une monture avec des emplacements d'apparences d'équipements.[65]
  • Les apparences ne peuvent être appliquées qu'aux équipements/selles qui sont obtenus en jeu.[66]
    • Les apparences d'équipements peuvent changer selon le type de monture sur laquelle ils seront appliqués.[65]

Backer only skill FX

All Kickstarter backers will receive a skill effects (FX) set.[67]

  • Includes unique colors and additional effects for certain skills. For example: A mage with her fireball skill may fire off a ball of searing white flames as opposed to the traditional colors of that skill.

Bourse

As nodes develop, player governments may open a Bourse (also called Stock markets and Sharemarkets) where players can buy and sell shares in Nœuds, Guildes and Organisations sociales.[68][69]

  • There is no regulatory commission to restrict the purchase and sale of stocks.[70]

Crowdfunding guild rewards

Guild themed character cloaks were cosmetic rewards for backing at the Leader of Men level or higher in the Kickstarter and Summer crowdfunding campaigns.[71]

Guild cloaks will work the same way that accessory appearances from the cosmetic packs work, in that they are applied to the item and take over that appearance. They can not be applied over costumes. [72]Cody Peterson

Kickstarter/Summer crowdfunding guild rewards[73] are assigned to a guild by the owner of the reward.[74]

  • Once assigned, the reward becomes an asset of that guild.[74]
  • Guild members that leave the guild no longer have access to the unique items of that guild.[74]

Crowdfunding mounts

Kickstarter/Summer crowdfunding mount rewards are obtained and utilized by applicable backers in the following way:[75]

  1. Basic mounts are obtained through an early quest that is available to all players in starting areas.
  2. Players assign cosmetic skins to a character on their account from the account management page.
  3. The skin can then be applied to change the appearance of the mount that was earned in game.
    • This does not remove the skin itself. It can be applied again to any other applicable mount in the future.
    • Players may remove the skin from a character and assign it to another character on their account.
    • Skins can only ever be active on one character and one mount.

The Dawnbreaker mount skin is used in a similar fashion as described, but is only applicable to a certain class of mounts. Aquatic mount skins, like the Tidesnapper, are also used in a similar fashion, but are only applicable to the aquatic class of mounts.[75]
