City of Abandoned Ships - Q & A @ RPGDot
RPGDot has a little more coverage of the pirate-themed RPG we looked at awhile back, City of Abandoned Ships, from Akella and Russian developer Seaward. Here's a snip:
4) I understand that the game will utilise a unique progression system called "P.I.R.A.T.E.S", could you tell us a little about how this will work and how the characters will advance through the game world? Can we pick a character type and gender at the start of the game?
The character development system, P.I.R.A.T.E.S, bears first letters of 7 major characteristics our character will have: Power, Impression, Reaction, Authority, Talent, Endurance, and Success. These stats affect at which pace the protagonist’s 14 skills will develop. These skills divide into personal (credibility, light, medium and heavy weapons, guns, luck, and secrecy) and ship-borne (navigation, accuracy, weaponry, boarding, defense, repair, trade). Every skill is to be developed separately depending on how the gamer plays. For example, when you buy something in a shop, you thus raise your Trade skill; however you aren’t getting any closer to developing your Boarding skill. When you shoot, it improves your Guns skill, and as you proceed and master your attributes, your shooting becomes more accurate and deadly. Sea combats develop your Accuracy and Weapons skills, etc. The gamer is offered three protagonist options, all of them are male. However, if you choose to play as Peter Blood, you’ll have a separate unique line of quests.
