  • Asking for help and teamwork

    What do you guys think about the possibilities for Parafolk to help one and other. Either by asking or offering help. In other games we have seen that characters can help each other with homework or build a sand castle together. But I would like to see something more in depth. When Paras help each other with tasks it should have a bigger impact.

    Take for example a Para child who wants to bake a cake for her classmates on her birthday. She asks Para dad for help because she is not allowed to operate the oven alone and needs help with measurements. Whether Para dad helps her or not can depends on several factors, e.g. his personality, his mood, his knowledge about baking and his relationship with his daughter. Dad agrees to help and this increases their relationship and positively affects the way his daughter views him. They get to work and split the tasks. Dad reads the recipe, daughter gathers the ingredients, dad measures, daughter adds to bowl etc etc. During this baking there is the opportunity to work on the relationship (or not, depends on the player). This example is where the daughter would not be able to bake the cake without help. There can also be situations where a Para can do it alone, but it would be more efficient if they had help.

    Let’s say you have 2 Paras with low baking skills. You can still have a high quality cake because their skills together is what counts. A Para with level 2 baking skill and a Para with level 3 baking skill, make a better cake together than a Para with level 4 baking skill can alone.

    Another way how teamwork can affect tasks is the time of completion. 2 or more Paras will finish a task faster than 1 single Para. Think of hanging laundry to dry, fixing a car, cleaning the house.

    It would be great if they can not only do tasks together, but also be conscious of it. Being able to talk about their experiences with others and remember how it was working together with specific Paras. Maybe if they had a bad experience, they will not accept to work with a particular Para is they were asked again.

  • I think this is a great idea. They should also be able to ask for help financially if they have a high relationship. There should be a system to pay it back at some point. Paras can also ask to babysit the kids or dog sit.

  • I LOVE this! I would totally adore the ability to help our other Paras to perform tasks. I especially like the idea that unskilled/low skilled Paras working together can produce a high quality result. That sounds great. Definitely hoping we can get this in the game.

  • I think this is a great idea and could help increase bonding moments for paras. I think helping them and also if they see others doing something they can encourage them to keep trying if they get frustrated or give up. I like that the two skills sets would be come together creates a great end result in the tasks as well.

    Also I hope we can teach kids how to ride bikes ^_^

  • i think it would be cool if two low skilled paras working together could create either a bad/good/great result and depending on the personalities they would react differently. so if two paras made a bad object but one of them had a great sense of humour then they could make light of the situation or an empathetic para could help comfort the other para if they were embarrassed about it. in the same way, a perfectionist para could get really angry if it didn’t go their way.

    this is a really cool idea!

  • If they were working together they could each learn from the other, or one para could get cooking lessons from a more experienced one as well. Would work with woodworking, clay work, drawing, building a treehouse-like thing. Something along those lines. (A teachable moment)
