Ive been thinking of a interesting idea to go with the whole sandbox idea and keeping players interested in MMORPG games. As you know with alot of MMORPGs the side quests tend to be something along the lines of go here and kill X amount of creatures or obtain X amount of resources from creatures.
How much more entertaining and rewarding would it be if the players where the ones creating the side quests, say a higher leveled player needs a certain resource to craft an item but this resource is obtained from lower leveled creatures. Instead of wasting their time grinding the resource themselves they could, they could post it as a quest for lower leveled players. The reward could be of their choosing. I have not quite thought out how exactly to work this, something along the lines of their own money maybe even experience, or an item even. This would give the possibility of endless amounts of side quests as it could range from bounties on peoples heads (if say you had a law system in the game) to simply protection for travel or even possibly clearing out basements or courtyards of creatures of a higher leveled players house/refuge etc. If you could somehow make this system work that lower leveled players could 'hire' higher leveled players with a worthwhile reward for the higher leveled players then everyone would win. Of course there would also be other npc quests such as main quests, specific quests or even other side quests. I believe this would create more incentive to complete these side quests as you would be doing favors for other players and possibly even creating relationships, say maybe a favorite customer, or specific assassin/thief you want to get the job done. There could be reputations grown. This would also create alot of competition to get the job done first competing with other bounty hunters etc.
Would like to hear thoughts and feedback on this idea even the bad. Though this is just an idea im putting out there not even sure how it would work exactly.
