Before anyone flames you, I think I''d best post here.

Jono - starting an RPG without an idea is not smart. You will have no direction in your development, because you don''t know what you''re aiming for. I''d suggest trying to write a story first, do some basic design, and then come back to actually programming the game.



Give me one more medicated peaceful moment..

Well, that means you have a plot, not a story. As MKV suggested, go back and write the story, especially if this a traditional style RPG. That''s because the story is the heart of the RPG and essentially dictates how and what everything else is developed.

*shudder*

IMHO

Character and Story are inextricably tied. Your character''s motivation should derive from the plot and the plot should derive from his motivation. If what you say is true and you have planned out a series of ebents without first creating a character personality to guide them, you will find the player feels he is being herded through a game....

Ah, it''s no use. Have fun making your RPG.

This reminds me of some of the horror stories I heard from a friend who worked as an editor at an indy comic publisher. Some of the submissions . . . . . .

... I''d bet! =)

Jono, I wasn''t being sarcastic. Have fun. Don''t listen to me unless you are taking yourself really seriously. If you are only trying to make a game for fun, by all means, tell me to shut the hell up.

Hey, if you want to send me the plot to my e-mail address, oni316@yahoo.com, then I can whip up a couple of quick characters for you. I play table top and live action roleplaying and enjoy creating a wide range of characters. E-mail and I''ll work my magic for you.

Thank You!
For the support. And the game will be FREEWARE. Which means having fun for free.

I''m just working on the engine at the moment, to work with bitmap collision and items, magic etc...

So it''s a very small story line. The guys name is Oakley and he is a kid. He beats the boss and gets a sword. Then the game is complete. I was wondering if anybody could help me with the story, like where he came from and what he is in search for. The next game will be massive. As i said it''s a small story line.

And Thnks Erric i will e-mail you.

PS If anybody would like to help me with the game. Then please e-mail me : zatanik@ignmail.com
