Search is Gold!

Post by Elyon »

Was wondering if searching crates, boxes, or even bushes could be added to AT. I'm an explorer, I like to make sure I walked every tile, so to speak. So it would make it real nice to be able to search stuff and find a few trinkets here and there. Wishful thinking here but maybe even if caught sneaking something out of a crate, chest or somebody's house, you'd be thrown into prison or have to pay a fine :twisted: , but at the same time raise your status in/with the Thieves Guild ;) . This would give players a good reason to go into those random houses that we otherwise will probably never visit again. Maybe even have some places with a greater chance of finding treasure but also a greater chance of being caught, like near the leader of BWM because of his watchful guards, for example. I'm thinking this would really promote exploring and cement it even further as a driving force to finding the new quests and cities. What ya'll think?


Pretty sure this idea has already been covered but couldn't find it so feel free to move this if so.

+1 This is a good idea.. There is actually someone in Fallhaven who shouts "Stay away from the crates" and I always end up wondering what does he have to hide..

So it would be pretty cool if we could sneak up to his crates when he ain't looking, and find a bunch of goodies hidden inside (or maybe a few dead corpses?!)

It would be interesting to if there were some way to distract these poor souls. Maybe with misdirecting conversation or perhaps another use of the rocks! Toss a rock, the fellow goes, to see what the noise was, you look in the crates.

I felt during the idol quest that it was odd you could just walk into peoples homes and hide stuf in front of them without having to "sneak" or "distract"

I meant that adding this element would make the exploring part of AT better.

That's a great idea to toss the rock, though I doubt that can be done.. Bt you can try to go up to the, and back outside crates without being seen.. If you are caught you lose some stuff, mainly whatever you found inside.. That would be interesting..

there are a few boxes & crates with fun stuff inside, just not a lot...
but rest assured - there will be more!!!

who doesn't love finding treasure boxes & such?
it's a classic RPG element ~ if you ask me...

Vacor's Hideout has quite a few boxes full of goodies for the taking!

Totally classic rpg element.. Breaking open the boxes and finding health potions, gold coins, or full mana potions, or little quests within the main game, was one of the main features in an rpg, and extremely fun.. :D
Vacor's hideout? Already been there.. There were no crates for the taking, atleast none I saw while killing him :twisted: Do you mean Lodar's hideout?
