Hey there guys and girls. Been thinking about finally playing Reckoning, because it's kind of a RPG draught right now, and the combat in the game looks super good. There's one thing keeping me on the fence though.
Generally when I play RPGs, I love to just make a mercenary type character that just lives in the world like everyone else. Like in Skyrim, my main character is a dunmer rouge that just takes on stray jobs. I haven't even started the main quest with that character, so not a single dragon can ruin my experience with the game. Just now I'm done building my own little cabin in the woods, fitting it with the books and items I want there.
For some, this might seem super boring, but I love to play that way. Anyway, back to the question at hand. Is it possible to role play like this in Kingdoms of Amalur, or are you basically required to do the main quest?
