Best idea is to do both, have the description for achievements in the game panel so people know about it, and just have a list of them with the completed ones marked, on the multiboard.

Yeh either this or just plain game panel; if you only have multiboard to show them (aka just show the names), it's too inconvenient to find out what you have to do.

Plus, well-chosen icons can further enhance the achievements themselves.

I believe the achievements should fulfill the aims of being:
- Unique
- Challenging
- Fun
- Encourage the use of give-ups and the likes
- Providing a new perspective of the game itself
- Does not penalize the player
- Rewards player for being brave

So thats why we shouldn't have achievements like fail to steal 20 times in a row, but we should have achievements like defeating Xada in his second form, amassing some gold etc.

And I would prefer achievements to be found in both game panel and multiboard. Achievements should be sorted in twelve categories, with twelve achievements in each category, and each achievement should have its icon, in the game panel. Also, we should be able to track how much more to be able to unlock the achievements if possible, i.e. 13245/50000 creeps killed. And there could be a short description and a wacky name for each achievement. For the multiboard, I think it should just show all achievements unlocked so far, including those from previous give-ups. And if possible, there could be a claimable reward for unlocking achievements.

Yes we can use both Game Panel and Multiboard. Fine with me.

Next we have to think what kind of categories we'll have. We can have maximum of 11 categories and 11 achievement inside a category. I want interesting categories so go ahead and suggest some. The categories will also have a little icon and description.

I have another suggestion: Obtain Omega Orb 6 in chapter 3.
Along the shore the cloud waves break,
The twin suns sink behind the lake,
The shadows lengthen
In Carcosa.

Strange is the night where black stars rise,
And strange moons circle through the skies,
But stranger still is
Lost Carcosa.

Songs that the Hyades shall sing,
Where flap the tatters of the King,
Must die unheard in
Dim Carcosa.

Song of my soul, my voice is dead,
Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed
Shall dry and die in
Lost Carcosa.

Btw "juggernaut take 100,000 damage in ten seconds without dying" may be a little too high, perhaps 10,000?

Also completing the game in an hour may be kinda difficult. Riddle questions for 10 chapters is already about 20 minutes or something wasted.

And chapter 6 alone will take far too long to do, like 30 minutes minimum.

So if we assume those categories and achievements were to be added, we would have 9 out of 11 possible categories as well as 44 out of 121 possible achievements. Perhaps you could keep a track of it somewhere...

Just realised: for chapter specials, I believe there should be exactly one achievement per chapter, to make it more orderly and fulfilling for each chapter.

Myth - Have obtained a myth item.

Isnt that too easy? Just complete one optional quest in chapter 7 to get a myth item.... Why not increase the quantity of myth items to be obtained - say obtain all myth items?

Massacre - Killed more than 1000 enemies.

Also too easy already... in one playthrough to Chapter 7, I already killed more than 1000 enemies. I suggest to increase the number by like 10 times - 10000 enemies to be killed.

Suicide Artist - Die 10 times or more during a single chapter.

Why should we reward someone for doing something negative, like dying?

Stats - Achievements about reaching records with stats. Let's see how you'll succceed![/b]

What about other stats, like hp, mp, mp regen, attk dmg, magic dmg, critical dmg, armor, attack speed, steal chance, gold bonus and exp bonus?

What about defeating all mini bosses in the game?

Then it's utterly impossible: that same optional quest makes you choose one, and only one myth item from four. Maybe a fixed amount would be better.
