If I made a forum suggestion thread about this before, it's been WAY too long ago, so whether there was a faraway effort or no effort at all, let me refresh the notion. The building is fun, the exploring is cute, and we're all excited for cars...but did you know that the Almighty Cube used to be an ordinary Dirt Block until it was blessed with its divine power by Betamax?
I want more tidbits like that. It doesn't have to be a Bioware game, @CosmicCow @SirKewberth @Betamax
but I would like some more reason to care about the Cubic Universe. I want all the most outstanding realms to play a role in Cubic Lore!
Like find some way to weave the story of the Adventure Mode into the overarching Cubic Existence (How does the story of "The Chosen Hero" relate to Qbees at large? Just MENTION it somewhere outside of the Adventure Mode!), or even @space_fetus
"A Tale of Seven Hearts" into the mix. And at the risk of sounding all "Notice me Senpai", I'd be THRILLED if there really were "Official Realms" named "Capital City" and/or "Paladin City"! :D The Mods have their office, which definitely needs to be a central point of interest, like the Ministry of Defense and the 3 Realms that are in "Capital City" now: Cubic Learning Center, Cubic Town Center, and Cubic Jail.
Cubic World has the potential to be filled with such wonder. And I want to explore and pioneer that wonder! :D That was, in fact, part of the intention when I invented Tales of the Order!
To help give you thoughts to get started, let me ask you a few "trivia questions":There's the wizard's tower as part of a Quest Pack, so with wands and gems and all that, can Qbees potentially become psychic or wizards themselves? Have any learned Telekinesis?
Is there such a thing as age and "growing up" or are all Qbees born equal and fully "adult"? Do Qbees have lifespans? Can they potentially die of old age?
The Qbee Village as seen in the Quest Pack...and the Qbee Village in the Adventure Mode...both share a VERY SIMILAR name. Are they the same village?!
The Cosmic Cow did launch a space ship to the stars and even had a space station. Are there any other notable means to space? Any "starports", or is space tech still in the Earth-like stages where going to space requires elite training and dedication?
Are there any "Hero" Qbees? I know the unnamed "Chosen One" is one, but any others? I know the museum in the Adventure Mode and the 10-piece artifact blocks (like the fossil, cave painting, etc.) hint at times long ago and mention a couple names, but who invented the nuke? Who invented the Wands, or even the Cannons? Are any other Scientists working on "improving" cannon tech - like shrinking them down into rifles?
And every time you see#PaladinLore
That's me trying
to nudge the Cubic Universe to take a figurative running-start towards this suggestion. Sure, take my ideas; I'd be honored if they were officially integrated. In my opinion, as a writer, we need more Cubic Lore.
