What quests will be like in Fortis Rex
In General
  • Player can choose his or her path
  • Player can play all or none of the side quests while still having a great time
  • Player will not be forced into combat side missions
  • And player will be able to create their own custom army

Quest Related
  • We have thought up 5 different quest categories including battle, negotiations,foraging, and crafting .
  • We have added our own twists to the normal MMO quests
  • And we..well actually I'm getting really tired of lists. Paragraph time!

Quests Categories in Detail
So what are all these categories for? I mean they sound cool (mostly because they where made by me *cough*) but what are they actually for? Well I will give an example.John is not much of a fighter, he likes crafting items and armor. So we want John to be able to find just the side quests he likes to do. In this case crafting quests. Now in many modern games you would see some kind of indicator over an npc's head, telling you that they have a quest for you. Something like a exclamation mark. Normally this little icon would be the same no matter what type of quest is given out there. What we propose is to put separate icons for each category of quest. So if the in game npc has a quest for crafting, then the icon above his head will look like a hammer and anvil. Basically we want players to be able to tell what kind of quest is given out by the npc even before they talk with them.This not only saves time for people who only want to participate in certain types of quests but it will also really add to the feeling and hopefully the overall aesthetics of the game.


Wrapping it up
Any way folks I hope this makes you feel more informed as I know we have been a little under par in that area. Also I would really appreciate your input on this as we can always use suggestions. More news to come soon.

p.s. This is also something you may want to know about ^-^

You may not know this but we have a very cool website! We will be moving it to a new locationhere [www.fortisrex.com]. With videos,screenshots,articles, and more, there is something for everyone.


Thanks everyone,
Ben

New Pics And New Faction Info Added!
Description
Build up your empire and lead a massive war in this army-commanding RPG.

Fortis Rex is an RPG set in a Medieval world, where you command your armies to overpower a corrupt ruler and take the throne as your own. The game features awesome horse combat, character dialogue, and exploration in a high-medieval setting, complete with gunpowder weapons and early technology.

Journey to an ancient land, full of mystery and wonder. You play the role of the Traveller, who one day wandered into the ancient land of Rex, where a tyrannical Emperor rules over his kingdom with an iron fist. All who even speak against his policies are executed, and the people live in fear of his dominance. The Emperors 400 year war against the Imperial Rebels has drained the coffers of both factions, and the time is right for a new King. Generation after generation has fought and died over an ideal that all but the Emperor's descendants have forgotten about. It has been foretold by the Elders of Tarra that a stranger will come from a distant land, and will unite the Empire again under one banner. Support the Emperor, the King of the Imperial Rebels, or carve your own path and become King, it's your choice.

Roam the land helping(or harming) the inhabitants of Rex, and join one(or multiple) factions intent on bending the future of the Empire to their will. The game world will respond to your actions, whether you choose to be the King or allow someone else to wear the Crown. Choose to do good or evil actions, and watch the game world respond to your own unique personality. In the world of Rex gunslingers and swordsmen travel the land, and compete with one another over resources and people. This is also another smaller war that is happening within Rex: the war between the ideal of traditionalism and modernism. The traditionalists seek to maintain the ancient ways, while the modernists seek to bring technology to the land of Rex. You can also join one of these factions as well, and become a supporter of either traditionalism or technology, but beware, your actions are always being watched and the game world will respond to who you support.

IN GAME FACTIONS:

The Imperials

The Imperials are one of the most ancient factions in the Realm Of Rex. They are at war with The Imperial Rebels, The Bandits, and the ever troublesome Pirates. The Imperials have stations and garrisons in just about every city and town in the Empire. The seat and very heart of Imperial power lies in the city of Algoth. The total power of the Imperials is magnificent, mostly because they support both the Technologists and the Traditionalists. If one had designs on collapsing Imperial power, they would have to find a way to get the Imperials to join one side or the other...

The Imperial Rebels

The Imperial Rebels split from their parent faction, The Imperials, 400 years ago. The reason they split is still a debate to this day, but the common reason is that they disagreed with Imperial methods and the massive amount of corruption in the Empire. They are at war with The Imperials, the Bandits, and the Pirates. Just like the Imperials, however, they support both sides of the side conflict, both the Technologists and the Traditionalists. In fact, it has been rumored that Rebel technology is actually more advanced than that of the Empire. It is rumored that the Imperial Rebels maintain a stronghold in the city of Nelson, although this is just a rumor, because all Imperial inquiries into the matter have come to naught...

Bandits

Bandits are the "People From The Forest". They dwell among the trees and from time to time raid and rob from their local village or the unsuspecting wayfarer. The Bandits are at war with all other factions, as their only friend and primary motivation is the attainment of gold.

Pirates

Pirates are very similar to the Bandits, except they like to sail up and down the river of the game world and throughout the world raiding coastal villages. They have also been known to put up blockades on railroad tracks and hold up entire trains.

The Technologists Guild

Supporters of technology and the primary ideas behind the development of new technology. Their armament includes guns, and new deadly developments in this area have recently come to light. Repeater muskets and a new innovation, rifles, have surfaced out of Nelson. These deadly weapons weaken the cause of the Traditionalists.

The Traditionalists Guild

The keepers of the traditional ways, and the opposers of the development of new technology. The Traditionalists Guild support the abolishment of technology, as they claim that it takes away from the rights of the people to do work for themselves. They say that trains will eventually rule out the need for horses, and guns will take the chivalry out of warfare. They support the use of bows and swords, and melee warfare, as they claim that it is honorable to fight with these forms of weapons, and it is dishonorable to use technology on the battlefield.

The Guild Of Cartographers

Based in Nelson, the Guild of Cartographers are responsible for putting the world of Rex on the map, literally. They are employed by the Empire and well payed, as their work is very dangerous(bandits, pirates, and other individuals who seek to do the Guild harm).

The Eye Of The Emperor

A branch of the Empire that watches the towns and cities all around Rex, to guard against rebellion and monitor bandit invasions. They are the "spies" of the Empire, although they are not called by this name and take offense to the term. They preferred to be called "Guardians", and are regularly called by this name in the Empire, although outsiders call them by other choice names...

Angels
Fortis Rex has a supernatural themed main story line, fight demons along side your troops. Angels will also support you in battle against pure evil, to send the demons back to where they came from and close the infernal portals that were opened so long ago...

demons

demons are the embodiment of pure evil in the game world, and are the main antagonists. They have invaded the bodies of many around the game world, and the evil that they commit is indescribable. You play the role of a Holy Warrior sent to conquer these armies of evil, but the choice of how to defeat them is up to you, as well as how you treat the inhabitants of the land...

The3Kingdoms Jan 13, 2015 @ 5:40pm 
someone from Desura, Nelson7 or something like that, told me the same thing and I got it to work. Seems like you guys got very good potential but only time, patients from the players and very hard work from the dev's will this game succeed. And I hope it does.. I know I jumped into a game and started running like I was Sonic the Hedgehog - lol
Ancient Realms Studios  [author] Jan 13, 2015 @ 5:24pm 
@ The 3 Kingdoms Try downloading the EXE installer from Desura, that should work. Thanks! :) When we get on Steam the Beta price will probably be 11.99
The3Kingdoms Jan 11, 2015 @ 1:56pm

The3Kingdoms Jan 11, 2015 @ 1:56pm
