    what if there were no more villains or bosses. what if the goal of the game was just a cooperative mission to better humanity to explore, expand knowledge build better worlds, eradicate disease and poverty. Imagine...

    As much as I LOVED the FFXIV ending cinematic, I would also love to see them incorporate something like the Atma Weapon from FFVI lore.

     

    From http://zharth.tenjou.net/ffvi/chars.htm:

    Atma Weapon

    "1000 years ago, during the War of the Magi, 2 so-called Atma Weapons existed. One changed a person's power into a sword, the other was a monster, bred for mass destruction."
    -Scholar of Weapons

    "My name is Atma... ...
    I am pure energy...
    and as ancient as the cosmos.
    Feeble creatures, DIE!" -AtmaWeapon

    "I'm Atma... ...
    Left here since birth...
    Forgotten in the river of time...
    I've had an eternity to
    ponder the meaning of things...
    And now I have an answer..." -Atma

    Good luck selling that game.

    People crave conflict & bloodshed, it's what we are. We can rise above it due to the power of reason, but can never shake it completely.

    Besides, your idea usually sounds good in theory, but turns out to be mindnumbingly boring in practice.

    How about jellyfish? They come in different sizes and are the source of evil in this planet.

    another great thing about Asherons Call, they made up their own lore and bad guys. they didnt just copy trolls, elves and dwarfs from everybody else.

    instead we had Olthoi, shadows, tuskers, and so on....

    oh and dont forget the mites, damn that sound they made when they beat your head in.

    Nice, this i the kind off stuff i'm refering to.

    I'd also like bird type creatures, like a Phoenix to make a more important role.

    Rabbits the most dastardly and evil of all creatures. They lull you into a false sense of secuirty and them BAM they  going for the throat.

    Only known weakness is the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch.

    If I were to make a story that includes villains and the like (which I am editting my book right now (:  ), I would make something that is both familiar, but something that's never been seen before. Something like a conglomerate of different creatures into one being with interesting lore to back up why it's that way. People would be familiar with portions of the villain or creature, but the combined effect should induce emotion or prove to the player that what they are looking at is a villain and not jus tsomething with pieces of other things glued on loosely.
