    EDIT: Sorry to say that the podcast has been postponed due to some hardware-related difficulties. We'll have a new date soon.

    Hello everyone!

    We're a few weeks away from our second bi-monthly podcast, where we will be answering user submitted questions! The podcast will be streamed live on Twitch on the 27th of November @ 7PM UTC! Don't worry if you miss it though, we'll be uploading the VOD to our YouTube channel afterwards.

    The VOD will likely be up within a day of the podcast. Within a week of the podcast we hope to have the transcription out so you can simply read through the answers if that's what you prefer!

    The topic for this podcast is "Quests & Lore". Ask any questions about them in the comments of this post, or on our Reddit/Facebook/Twitter posts!

    We'll choose as many questions as we can to answer. If you aren't able to submit a question in time, myself and perhaps some other developers will be in the chat answering chat-submitted questions as well. Thank you very much for your continued support and dedication to the project!

    Will we be seeing any form of SAO/ALO's dynamic quest generation, like in the anime? Like, say, autogenerated objectives?

    1. Is the lore going to be the main focus of the game? Or will it be something that's just there?

    To explain this further, is the game going to be more focused on killing mobs, joining guilds, raiding dungeons, and socializing with people, or will the game be very story driven?


    2. What are the quests going to be like? Just your everyday "collect 50 eggs" quest, or will it be something that ties back into the lore?


    3. In terms of the development of this project, has the lore gotten as much attention as anything else on the project?


    4. Can you give us any information about the lore?


    5. Any surprises in store in terms of the lore?


    6. How deep is the lore?


    7. Is the lore finished yet? If not, how done would you say it is?


    8. How likely would it be to give the community another demo, and instead of letting us walk around a village, let us go on a quest?


    9. Final question, and although it isn't quest or lore related, how much of the game is completed at this point in time?

    Will there be certain quests that can only be obtained by chance (for example, as a boss drop), or will all quests be given by "quest giver" NPCs found within the world?

    Will responding to some quests in some way have an effect on quests later in the game?

    1: will some quests (temporarily) effect the whole map?

    2: will there be daily/weekly quests?

    3: somewhat related: will AoA have a sort of achievement system aswell?

    1. Will there be quest that require two or more players? Ex. You need to pull two different levers at the same time.

    2. Will there be a main questline with side quests per floor? The main questline should be able the lore on said floor. Ex. Floor 7 or whatever is know for having a special runestone in one of the dungeons, the mainquest line will be about that runestone.

    3.Will you be able to make choices in the quests? Ex. You come across 3-paths in a dungeon, ans you get to choose one if the 3 with maybe a different mobs at the end.

    1. There will be some type of "karma" quest?If yes, how they will affect some type of mission such as manhunt on the ones with good/bad karma?
    2. There will be any quest with very rare/key items as reward that will require you to actually be in a party?
    3. There will be some sort of editor for fan-made quests?(Those quest, of course will have no reward)
