And Prince John tried to be in it but got rejected, lol. At least, I think so. We're still going with that, right? Cause I think it's hilarious.

Sooo the discussion is gonna heavy in the character thread and I've come up with a few ideas to add to the story to make it more fitting (possible making Lucius look more like a good guy before he reveals his plan).
Now, I underlined the thing I wanna talk about. I think it's best to not reveal that early in the game. We want Lucius to be this mysterious character. So I suggest that he just says that when evil gets too powerful he has a plan to stop evil. That's it. He won't tell more about it, he expects the four to trust him on that. The player will have to trust Lucius too, so the player will be able to understand the characters better.Originally Posted by From the story summary
Why is this change so important you say? Well obviously, I'm gonna explain that:
Another thing he tells them is that the possibility exists that he dies, however, they have to try this. He says that he didn't want to tell them all this because in the beginning, they wouldn't understand it. Now that they're experienced, they know how big the threat is that they're facing. This is the information they gain because they became Keyblade Masters. This also means that all that has happened previous in the game was actually their Mark of Mastery exam.
See where I'm going? So in short:
- The majority of the game is basically the Mark of Mastery exam for the four characters, however this will only be revealed at the end
- The four don't know that Lucius that he's planning on sacrificing himself to destory evil by using the power of the Bridges, this will be revealed at the end when they become Keyblade Masters
Because of all this, the relevance of them becoming Masters is way bigger and the player will have to learn to trust Lucius more. When the four become Masters and Lucius reveals that he was planning on sacrificing himself all this time, the player will suddenly gain more sympathy for Lucius. This in turn will make the impact later (when Lucius reveals his true intentions) even bigger.
^ I like it. It pretty much fixes most of the complaints that people had from thread 2. And I also noticed that throughout most of the game (aka: their mark of mastery) they kinda figure out what's going on, but they're still in the dark, and once they become masters, they pretty much figure everything out and beat all of the bad guys. It's kinda symbolic, really.
Umm... KMR, that's already been decided. It's just that your summary was worded a little oddly.
We already decided that Lucius' plan to summon Kingdom Hearts would be a surprised in the last level right before Prydain.
Lucius only tells the four that he's gonna use the power of the bridges to destroy evil. He does not use the word 'Kingdom Hearts' even once.
Only when the four return to Legacy City after Prydian, they will see the heart shaped moon above Lucius his tower and when they get there, Lucius is 'back from the dead' and will tell them about Kingdom Hearts and his true plans.
This is why I wrote my summary from the player's point of view because then the events are in the same order that the player will witness them.
In my summary, he says that he's ready to sacrifice himself on the moment he introduces himself to the four. That's what I wanna change. I'd rather have him telling the four he has a plan when evil gets too powerful but he wouldn't really explain it in detail. He just asks them to trust him and help him.
So I changed it to what I said above. Didn't add the Mark of Mastery stuff though. If you guys need it or wanna check it out, it's here.
Anyways, you were gonna rewrite the summary right Arkrend? If it gets decided whether or not we use the Mark of Mastery stuff I mentioned above, would you add it? Thanks! :)
Happy birthday KHI game project! :3
