You know what I've always wanted?
« on: November 19, 2010, 06:46:59 PM »
A KQ game starring...Saladin. I always found him to be an interesting character, and would love to play through an adventure with him.

And after playing TSL, the description of the statue of Saladin's ancestor in the castle halls (describing how he rose to become the first dog to serve as guard), I was thinking of what an interesting story could be made out of that.

Now obviously that's not going to happen, but I thought the next best thing could be a section in TSL as Saladin. I've always had an inkling that TSL would, at some point, include a playable section as each member of the family (whether I'm right on this is obviously yet to be seen), but a section as Saladin could be very interesting indeed.

I realise that at this point it's probably far too late to add something like that in even the last chapter, but it's worth the shot.

There were originally plans do have sections playing with different characters but unfortunately these were cut when the game was trimmed down to a more manageable size.

I have always loved Saladin though, so cool idea!

Sorry to sound like a n00b, but what a FPS? ???

So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

What an interesting idea! I too think Saladin is a great character (though he isn't developed much); additionally, I think the original voice actor from KQVI has since died. But anyways, it's still a cool idea.

Haids, FPS stands for first-person shooter.

One of the big reasons I'd like to see him star in a game.

. . . additionally, I think the original voice actor from KQVI has since died.
Indeed; Tony Jay passed away in 2006. I was incredibly sad when I found out; he was incredibly talented and had a wonderful voice. I loved him as Saladin and the Gate.

Thank you for clearing that up for me, boys. I actually really don't like first-person shooters, either. But if Captain Salidan starred in one I might reconsider.

I could actually see him in a Zelda-esque style game.

Yeah, you'd also have to make up some elaborate reason as to how guns suddenly appeared in the Green Isles out of nowhere...Or I suppose you could have an FPS with a bow and arrow...Nah, that'd be lame. Plus, I can't imagine Saladin shooting people up.

An RPG/Adventure approach could be cool though. What would Saladin be doing in this game, Arix? What would be the reason and object of his quest?

As I said earlier, an adventure based around Saladin's ancestor rising to become the first dog of the royal guard could be intriguing.

Right, but what would that actually mean in terms of adventures? What would he have to do to become the first guard dog? Fight some great evil?

That would be the traditional thing to do, but it also feels a bit overdone. It would definitely work, but I'd prefer something a bit more original.

Ever read Dragon Outcast? Cause I'm thinking something like that.

The main character, a copper dragon, is cast out from his family. Running away from them, he comes across the Lavadome, an underground community of dragons. He's adopted by the Tyr (king/emperor/whatever), and eventually becomes Tyr himself by uncovering a conspiracy among the community to overthrow the Tyr.

I'm thinking something along those lines (but less dramatic, of course).

You could always do what Demon Hunter did and have dual crossbows. ;)

I all honesty, I can't see Saladin as much of an archer. He always seemed like more of a melee fighter to me.
