The Dark Triad: Dragon's Death - Update #3, Character Customization & Game Story

by Myrthos, 2013-03-24 21:46:58

More information on character customization and the game story is made available in update #3 of The Dark Triad: Dragon's Breath.

It seems The Dark Triad: Dragon’s Death's plot is generating some controversy. There are the ones that like the setting a lot, and there are others that plainly abhor it. I decided to write this piece to make some things clear, as I think one video can’t explain accurately what’s hidden behind a seemingly cliche story.

Some may argue that the story of The Dark Triad: Dragon’s Death is the classic conflict of Good vs Evil, and that’s true to a certain extent. But this is true only in a black and white sense-- in reality, we are trying to make the distinction between these forces much grayer. What one can view as good and bad depends on his own point of view and beliefs, which are conditioned by his or her life experiences and the environment in which they were raised.

TDT:DD is based in a medieval fantasy setting. Obviously a fantastic setting does not mean that the story and, by extension, dialogue, cannot be highly realistic, at least regarding the social events and personal interactions with other NPCs and party members. 

At the same time, we cannot say realism can’t be mixed with a high degree of fantasy. If we think more deeply about this contradiction, we could actually form a connection between them: Fantasy might be an attempt to explain reality, using an associative logic that has not yet understood the laws of nature or those of cause and effect.
