Will There Be Relationships?

What I am curious about, will the developers add relationships to the game in any updates? Reference to when Conan pulls our character off of the cross he turns to us and says “live, love, slay and survive”. Then there’s the Derketo religion that is rather seductive and suggestive. It is said that she’s the god of fertility. .am I reading too much into this or are the developers going somewhere with this? I realize it’s a survival game but would they add this to bring fourth new players?? Would it be so bad as to have relationships or marriages within the game? Would developers consider this?

I don’t know about funcom but some modders and private servers are certainly taking it on another level :laughing:

It’s not SIMS that u playing. U can still use ur fantasy if you wanna marry someone in the game. And also, it could be modded. It dosnt have to come with a update funcom does. It’s not that type of a game this is really.


I wouldn’t exactly call those relationships. :wink:

OP does raise a valid question and never said that it had to be visual like in those “mods”…

There are similar games that have played with the thought of having offspring and aging in a game where your character slowly grow old and will perma die at some point where you can pass knowledge to your children and continue by chosing one of them to control as main character - It is an interesting idea, I think Atlas was planning on such a feature, don’t know if they still have it in their roadmap.

That said I don’t think Funcom is considering such a feature, but it could add a whole new intersting layer to the game :slight_smile:

The downside of children is you just know there’d be repercussions when someone does an orphanage massacre video. Might raise awareness of the game though. :stuck_out_tongue:

That line is a reference to his speech to Belit in Queen of the Black Coast (emphasis mine):

I have known many gods. He who denies them is as blind as he who trusts them too deeply. I seek not beyond death. It may be the blackness averred by the Nemedian skeptics, or Crom’s realm of ice and cloud, or the snowy plains and vaulted halls of the Nordheimer’s Valhalla. I know not, nor do I care. Let me live deep while I live; let me know the rich juices of red meat and stinging wine on my palate, the hot embrace of white arms, the mad exultation of battle when the blue blades flame and crimson, and I am content. Let teachers and philosophers brood over questions of reality and illusion. I know this: if life is illusion, then I am no less an illusion, and being thus, the illusion is real to me. I live, I burn with life, I love, I slay, and am content.

I think if Funcom had meant that to imply the possibility of a romance mechanic, they’d have mentioned it at some point during Early Access or since the game’s release.

We can love and not be involved in a relationship. You can love your home, or your horse, or your sheep, or you might love adventuring or the thrill of battle or partying. You can even love another person yet not be romantically involved.

:joy: you didn’t kill my buzz just wanted to get other’s opinions and thoughts.:blush::heart: Loved your response.

This is understandable and true, I just was asking because I thought it would make the game interesting and also with the Derketo religion I had thought developers would go somewhere with that too.

See and that’s it, relationships doesn’t have to be like the Sims at all or have that much detail. I figured it’d add more of an extra touch to really get people playing again. In reality on movies I’m sure if memory serves me correctly he was romantically involved with someone. .why couldn’t they add that in somewhere in the game? Would it be so bad??

Considering that Funcom has issues with undermeshing, duping and AI so daft they don’t fight, don’t pull out weapons during a fight, or get stuck in the ground, I highly doubt the idea of your toon banging every npc in the game to repopulate is high on the priority list.
