PostSubject: Joshier's not so secret, secret project.   Fri Jan 24, 2014 8:11 pm

Hey guys, just wanted a moment of time to ask you for your opinion on something as well as to give you a few related details to a project
I am currently working on.

As some of you may know, I rather enjoy creating games and have recently started on one which I hope to finish. So far I have got the basic game concept as well as what I believe to be a fairly solid beginning, but as you may have worked out, I am not far into the process and haven't had much time to develop the idea further than that.

So this is where you guys come in. I am thinking about setting the the game as a linear RP on the forums but first I need to know if you guys would be interested in joining? Of course I don't expect you guys to commit to anything just yet, but a rough idea would help.

Some details for you guys to take note of;
1. This is for a game I am working on and I may take small things from the RP to fuel the game
2. The RP will be fairly linear, meaning that decisions and outcomes will be pre-decided but which one is taken is likely to be up to those who partake in the RP.
3. The world will have rules and restrictions, such as available races and possibly some restrictions on powers.
4. It is a work in progress and subject to change so expect some rough writing at parts where I am still editing and developing it.
5. I aim to make it fun and enjoyable.
6. If all goes to plan, long absences of people or slow replies should not affect the progressing storyline to much.

Let me know what you guys think by replying to the thread, if no one replies then I will assume their is a lack of interest.

Update:

Rough draft for introduction is completed, currently refining it and having people look over it. If anyone wants to lend a hand and put forward a few comments in on it, let me know. The style has been changed to more of a Visual Novel than a normal RPG but the story won't be affected by this and neither should the RP. In theory, it shouldn't be too long till I am happy to post it and get things started.

Some related questions for you all:
Should the MC be male or female? (Won't affect the RP)
A taste of daily life and the story or just a continuous story full of events? (Will have an effect on the RP)
Day/Night Cycle? (Won't have much of an effect on the RP)

If you'd like me to review it Josh, i'd be more then happy too.
I would like the character to be male, but maybe we should vote on it
Maybe a taste of daily life, just want it to be interesting
and if it's not too much trouble to add a Day/Night cycle, go for it

I have 3/4 people looking at it currently so I should be fine for the time being, if I make any changes and need people to check it I will let you know.

Okay made a few more changes, reverted back to my original concept slightly with more of an RPG feel to it. I have a basic world established with 5 different races and some info on relations between them. I am taking some inspiration from the D&D style of things but keeping it closer to the classic RP format we use on TBRP.

Notable differences will be the limitation that exist in the world, such as preset races etc.

Let me know if you have any ideas for races, notable landmarks such as cities or areas?
The world is a high fantasy set up, but what do you want to see from it?
Let me know if you have any other ideas you would like to see and I will see if they can be incorporated.

Current races are:
Kitsune, Daemon, Human, Half-Giant, Wildling

Reptilian/Amphibian race.
If it's more of a mythical/magical involved world perhaps some sort of Faerie race generally small with wings. Perhaps the size of children.
Some sort of more animal like race that is quadruped or mainly traverses on all four legs but can be bipedal if they wish.
Is there a mythological/elder race that has perhaps faded out or are thought to be extinct? Are there a few of them still around yet the race itself has gone either due to the race vanishing or leaving to an unknown land?
Does each race have a niche that they fit into in the larger society? You have the merchant race, the inventor race, ecclesiarchy race, etc.

Maybe set up like distinct city/town structures based off of the original areas each race had inhabited. So you have say a marsh/water type village and you have the cave dwellers and the city in the trees. Stuff like that. Each race would have some sort of architectural style that reflects their heritage and shows up in their buildings.

What era of progression is the society in? Is it medieval era like D&D or is it in a more modern time period? Is it somewhat post apocalyptic kind of like Fallout?

Something I like to see in a world is a sort of rich history. Something to explore or to take a measure of the world from. Was there just a big war and the world is still recovering; do you have this growing tension between classes/races and will there soon be some sort of civil war; is everything peaceful? Also what sort of deity/religion and myths are there?

When you say high fantasy, is that high fantasy with magic or is there no magic in the world?
Are there general naming conventions for each race? For example in the Elder Scrolls game series each playable race has a certain naming structure for the NPC characters of that race. Something that when you hear it brings that race to mind.

Without giving away too much, the 5 current races are set up so that they all tie in together in various ways with different political standings, etc. The Kitsune are the "ancient" race alongside the Daemons. Humans are pretty typical. Wildlings are your wild race with a twist. The era is high fantasy, so medieval style yes, though I may add fantasy style guns but still not sure. I haven't decide on towns to the exact detail but the style of them is worked out. The faerie race is a nice idea, might add that.

Nope, as the name suggests they are related to demons and angels

So basically you are making a quest? A quest in this case being defined as the events, actions the main character takes, outcome of said actions, ect. are set up by the author, however the actions and some character creation stuff are determined by the popular vote of the players?

To some degree, it won't be as linear a originally planned however it will run quest based system that tries to explore different aspects of the world. Ideally the plot will evolve as it goes on with various twists. Whilst some quests or parts of quests are laid out others will require some thinking from characters. Character creation will generally be set by the world but evolution of that will be down to the players.

Okay guys, a quick update for you all!

The RP is almost ready to go live. The only things that remain unfinished are the religious beliefs in the world and how I want the RP to start. The beliefs can easily be completed during the RP but the start is a bit harder to RP without Wink

Once I know how I want the RP to begin, I will post it up so that we can begin.
