Create your own quests in Star Wars Galaxies
The Next Big System – Chronicle Master - 09/24/2009
Star Wars Chronicles
It's time to open your imagination and start creating stories to share with your friends. With the Star Wars Chronicle Master System, you now have the ability to create stories from relics you will discover throughout the galaxy. Use the Quest Builder to write your story with the relics you have discovered. Hit "Create Quest" to consume the relics and create a holocron in your inventory. This holocron can be traded to others or activated to begin the adventure. Completing holocrons will reward you with profession experience and tokens. Tokens can be used at the Chronicles reward vendor, S7-U44 Vending Droid, in both Theed and Coronet. The vendors are in the tent behind C-3PO. You can purchase relic booster packs from them. Many more exciting rewards will be available including a Sandcrawler house, hangar lite, a podracer, and much more.
Star Wars Chronicles is a player generated quest system.
Players will be able to take on the new role of
Chronicle Masters will create quests that can be burned to Chronicle Holocrons and then traded or sold to other players.
Creating a Quest:
Player generated quests are built though the new Chronicle Builder.
To begin building quests, the Chronicle Master will need to obtain Chronicle Relics. Chronicle Relics are in-game items that have quest events or specific actions associated with them.
Chronicle Relics can be looted, traded, or purchased. There are several different types of Chronicle Relics.
Once the necessary Chronicle Relics have been obtained, the Chronicle Master may begin building his/her quest. The Chronicle Master arranges the Relics in their quest, and customizes the text of the quest, to create compelling content for other players.
Once the Chronicle Master is happy with the quest, it can be saved as a Chronicle Draft so that it may be used again or improved over time.
A crafted quest will automatically produce rewards and XP based on...
1. How difficult the quest is.
2. The variety of tasks within
3. The length of the quest.
The Chronicle Master may also choose to attach a specific reward his/her own possessions, to sweeten the deal.
When complete, the Chronicle Master will burn the quest to a Chronicle Holocron that can be used by another player.
Playing a Quest:
Our goal is to make playing a Chronicle Quest virtually indistinguishable from a developer created quest.
Chronicle Quests are not like missions. Chronicle Quests will be visible in the Player Journal and Quest Helper. At the end of every Chronicle Quest the player may rate their experience.
High ratings will result in bonuses to the Chronicle Master's XP gain. Other benefits may be included at a later date.
As an added bonus, Star Wars Chronicles will give players the ability to create quests that feature iconic Star Wars characters such as:
1. Darth Vader
2. Han Solo
3. Boba Fett
4. Jabba the Hutt
5. ...And more!
These iconic characters will be featured via Comm. Message Relics. Distribution of these Relics has yet to be determined.
Players will be able to customize dialogue for these iconic characters for use in their quests.
Over time, we hope to add other exciting ways for players to include iconic characters in their quests. Stay tuned for more information about the Star Wars Chronicles system as it becomes available. Make sure to look for Star Wars Chronicles release on Test Center if you would like to test the system and provide feedback to our team on this powerful system in Game Update 13.
See you in-game!
