Shivers 3 Light and Darkness Collide.
« on: December 10, 2008, 07:13:18 PM »
When I was 13, I got Shivers the same day as Kings Quest 7 and as I was playing them both, I developed a vision where Shivers and Kings Quest become one.

Since Shivers had an anonymous hero, I made my own.  A metal creature called Grevor Blackstone.  After Shivers 1 and 2, Grevor discovers down the road that he was a creation of Professor Windelnot, but Windelnot died before Grevor was born.  Grevor returns to Windelnot's museum to learn more about his origin, but upon opening the main door, he was blinded by light and awakens in a world of vibrant colors.  This is where the collision of worlds takes place and where Grevor meets Rosella.  Grevor asks Rosella what part of the museum he's in and she doesn't know what he's talking about.  He goes off to find out who or what brought him into her world.  Case closed Rosella brought him into her world herself.  Not by technology, but by sorcery.  She used a book entitled "Sorcery for Dummies."  Rosella explains to Grevor that she needs his help and like her, Grevor is a puzzle solver and an adventurer, and it will take two puzzle solving brains to stop the merging of Grevor's dark world and Rosella's light world from the control of the evil gargantuous nightmare cyborg Zephomil.

You mean you are making this game??  COOL!  And welcome to the forum!


EDIT (forgot to put it in): Very cool story too, even if it's not a game.

Maybe if I could get in touch with Sierra and tell them my idea.  I'm sure they'd like it.  The story you just read tells you the first time in my life where I felt grotesque and beauty go hand and hand.  What do you think Rosella would find in a mutant cyborg with a good natured personality?

Later in this story, Grevor and Rosie head to Spider's Nest Mall in his dark world.  Rosie offers to give Grevor a makeover but ends up getting one herself.  How do you think Rosella would look in a black infiltration suit, futuristic goggles and a lightsabre in hand?

In a future Shivers if they decide to make more, I'd think you would be in a condemned mall called Spider's Nest, and like the first Shivers, there would be 10 elemental ghosts for you to find only with relics and crystals instead of pots and lids.  I picked a mall because it is vast like the Museum.

The 10 ghosts are Glass, Wind, Marble, Leather, Clay, Plastic, Styrofoam, Cement, Dust, and Ice.

Here's some dialogue for Shivers 3 Light and Darkness Collide I thought of.

(Grevor opens the front museum door and is blinded by light; The brightness dissipates and Grevor discovers he is in a world of more vibrant color)

Grevor:  Where am I?  I don't remember this being part of the museum.

(Grevor notices a blond woman in medieval clothing coming his way)

Grevor: Scuse me miss, what part of the museum am I in? 

Rosella: What's a museum?

Grevor: It's a big house with sculptures and artifacts.  You learn about their history and how they were made.

Rosella: Sounds interesting.

Grevor: I don't think she can be of any help to me.  I got a good look at myself lately and I look like I could scare the daylights outta her.  Looks like I'd better look into who or what brought me here.

(Grevor walks off; Rosella stops him in his tracks)

Rosella: You can close the case on that.  I brought you here.  Welcome to Eldrich.  My name is Rosella and you must be Grevor Blackstone, the savior of Cyclone and Windelnot's Museum of the Strange and Unusual. 

Grevor:  How come you're not scared of me? 

Rosella: Trust me, I've dealt with far scarier creatures than you. 

Grevor: You seem to know much about me but I know nothing of you.

Rosella: Stories have been told about you throughout Eldrich, and I was intrigued.

Grevor:  So you know about that museum?  I was returning there to learn more about my origin and then I saw this blinding light by the time I opened the main entry door.  What did you use to bring me here?

Rosella:  I used this. (shows Grevor a book entitled "Sorcery for Dummies")

Grevor: I don't think you're a dummy.

Rosella:  It was my first time learning sorcery and I wanted to chant the right words to bring you here. 

Grevor:  Mind if I call you Rosie?

Rosella:  I like that.

Grevor: You can call me Grev if you want.

Rosella: Look Grev, the reason I brought you here is there's this other creature just like you only darker and meaner who is merging my world with your world.  I can't think of his name.

Grevor: Zephomil?

Rosella:  Yes!!

Grevor:  We're called cyborgs.  Half man half machine. 

Rosella:  In order to stop the merging, it's gonna take two puzzle solving brains to crack this one.  If you can purge a museum of elemental spirits and restore a ghost town to its former glory, I think you can help me stop the merging of polar opposite realms.

Grevor: You got yourself a deal!

(Grevor and Rosella friendly fist each other)

NEW SCENE

Zephomil:  They'll never stop the merging.  It's only a matter of time before Eldrich and Adnama become one!

I thought I was the only guy in the world who knew Shivers.  It's good to finally meet another Shivers fan.  What do you like to call yourself when you play, just Merlin?

I own and have conquered both of them.  I can't tell you which I like better.

Zephomil has sent five minions to hunt down and prevent Grevor and Rosella from interferrence of the merging of worlds.

Skullgore- Demonic skeleton controlled by Zephomil's sorcery.

Megatroll- Worse than Brutus the Bridge Troll, Megatroll has injected himself with a dangerous level of steroids and is over 10 feet tall and weighs 5 tons.

Cy-Bear- Once an ordinary grizzly bear, captured by Zephomil's henchmen and grafted with cybernetics forcing him to obey Zephomil's every command.

Uberzombie- Stitched together with different corpse parts.  Makes the Boogeyman look like a bedtime plush toy.

Tempestro- Like the Tasmanian Devil but he'll turn you inside out if he sucks you into his tornado form.

Zephomil- Grevor's nemesis and the source of the merging of Adnama and Eldrich.  Should Zephomil succeed, All of Eldrich will be tainted by the dark element of Adnama and neither realm will ever be the same.

I'll have to go with Shivers, I just liked the atmosphere slightly better in it. :)

Couldn't agree more.  Shivers is more my world than Kings Quest is. ;)
