What is with all the skeletons in the dungeons?

Post by Tack » Tue Jul 20, 2010 12:46 pm

I mean I know they are background, but what's the story behind them? It seems to remind of 16 century prisons which they just crammed alot of people in and the player gets to see the aftermath. :?

Come on, dude, use your brain.

"Adventurer goes in dungeon. Sees skeletons. Obviously the game's telling you that adventurers have come here, failed, and die. Ooooh spooky scary."

Jesus, you're just making up things to make topics about at this point.

Exactly what you're imagining. I don't think there's an EXACT background story behind them...they're simply there so you can break them, and because a "dungeon" wouldn't be exactly complete without them.

I mean, what would you expect to find in a dungeon, if not skeletons, skeletons in a cage, skeletons who seem to have gone through alot of torture, skeletons of travelers such like you who weren't as lucky, monsters, pits, traps, closed rooms, treasures, and giant bouncy Bloody Eggs? ....Well that last one could be debatable XD

On the subject of Bloody Eggs, why the hell are there skeletons in fleshwall dungeons? Shouldn't they be, um, digested or something? And... not look as... complete... as they do? XD

I could also ask why there are fleshwall dungeons in the first place, BUT THAT'S BESIDE THE POINT. XD

I dunno... if you really think about it maybe they died sealing the monster into portals?

Actually, it's not that bad. Tack has generated more conversation than we've seen in a while, and some of it is pretty interesting. In any case, it's better than the same 4 topics every day...

Aren't they? The bone is usually as far as much animals digest, I think...

Wow. I haven't seen this many topics generated by one member on here since the Shadow of Skeith era. ( I miss her.) Anyway, if I can recall, the skeletons have a redish white texture to them, so I assume that would be considered "flesh", or at the very least, decaying tissue. lol

Thanks, I'm just trying to contribute to a series that I love.

Well if you notice.
When you first go into the dungeon sometimes they are monsters and you go into the mouth.
That would probably explain the fleshwall dungeons. :)

Poor creatures. Buried deep into the ground, only able to see and move their fingers creepily, and being forced to endure fierce and violent battles ocurring inside their bodies. Quite the torture D; lol

Those skeletons are kind of disturbing, and they're all sitting in the same position. I think they're just plastic skeletons with items inside of them. ^^;
