Decisions made:

  • I will be using procedural map generation
  • You'll be able to customize Hero (but not his name because of the following)
  • I'm going to have voice acting
  • Split currency will be two-fold: gold and silver.
  • Characters' appearance will be dependent on their current equipment



New Poll - Battle System



Time is going to be a little short for a little while. My friend and I just worked out a deal and I'm going to be making a website for him. It's going to take around a month or two because he wants a lot of stuff, but (hopefully) it'll pay off in the end.

I'm going to start making sure I spend at least 1 hour a day working on Super RPG! so that I can actually go somewhere with it. The design is practically done, I just need to update it to the template D. McGraw posted for me and fill in the blanks, which should only take a day or two. I'll keep you guys updated.

*note*
While I said I'm going to be short on time, the fact that I'm going to devote an hour to the project each day means that I'll be getting more done. I'll just have less time to do other things like surf the web and play games.
*note*

-edit-
Also working on fixing my website and then actually using it. We'll see how it goes this time.

I was wondering what was going on with that site. I actually ended up deleting it from my bookmarks because I thought you forgot about it. Tisk Tisk...

Yea, that seems to be how I deal with my sites. I'll spend a couple days making a new one, update it a couple times, and then completely ignore it until I feel like making a new one.

Check out Final Fantasy X: you can change the hero's name and it features voice acting. The way they did it was not to refer to the hero's name whenever they talk to him directly. Also, it helped that it was the hero who narrated the game's story.

I thought about that too, but that means I have to pay more attention to the dialogue and such when writing it, which is already going to be a pain because I'm having several other people write their own part.

Also, changing the name hero kind of lessens the parody sense IMHO.

So, long story short: that'd make me do more work and I'm a lazy bastard.
