What if there was an option to switch player control to a npc follower upon death?
It’ll be cool to be able to continue playing your game when you die by becoming one of your followers. Mechanics wise, everything you owned & faction wise transfer control to that npc, so you can jump right back into the action, and role play wise, your second in command either avenges you or survives in your name.
- can set follower as second in command, who takes over when you die.
- this will be good for people who’ve built up a faction camp, so you don’t lose it all
-upon death, you jump right back into game, but you’re forced to play as your follower…meaning you’re stuck with whatever stats they have
-allows one to keep playing a faction & create legacy that could persist through many characters & game years.
-maybe even add a graveyard modular to faction camp builds to honor those lost.
-perhaps other npcs talk about your dead character depending on their loyalty. Do they weep? Curse? Go insane?
The idea is to allow you to pick up right where you left off, keep everything you’ve built, and not have to slog through character creator. However, because you are now playing as a npc, you can’t start with an op character.
Would something like this be possible?
