It seems to me that lately, there have been a lot of messages, and threads about rpg''s around the place. And long one''s at that, so if there is so much discussion about them why not makea seperate message board for them, like underneath the game design section or something. It would be like a one stop resource for RPG game ideas and way to implement them?

I think that there should be a nice specific place for RPG's. I have been having my say over at gamasutra.com for a long time, but I haven't seen many of these forums here.

NPC AI is a biggie at the moment at gamasutra. Maybe we could start up such here?

Just my $0.02
or $0.022
(GST is being introduced in Australia now)
or would it be
$0.055 as you say?

Well Now,

Landfish always seems to be starting a thread
of some sort to do with some aspect of RPG''s.
And they always turn out to be really popular
and recieve a massive number of posts. And
as many other people have previously said
Darkmage139 for one, Landfish has made the that
forum what it is today.
He''ll probably have a word or two to say about
this, unless of course it slips his notice.

I tend to start threads to do with NPC AI and other such fun topics. People interested in this should go over to GamaSutra and 1) Join up 2) Go to Connection -> Game Design and here there are two RPG topics. REINVENTING RPG and RPG, PLAYERS AND THE FUTURE. Two topics which I am fairly regular in making it be known about NPC''s Becoming Players in their own right.

NPC''s don''t interact enough with the players and each other, and they are too static. There needs to be an NPC revolution where the NPC''s throw off all their static scripting and burn those files! They need to be free to attempt quests themselves and also to become friends or enemies with other players. When I say other players I also mean other NPC''s as well!

As I have said before and will say again:
NPC''S ARE PEOPLE TOO!

I''m getting really tired of this LandFish Worshipping here... sure, he bounces good ideas off everyone, but his threads would still be worthless without the many contributions of other people on this forum. He just moved a lot of discussion from the Lounge to the Game Design forum.




Give me one more medicated peaceful moment..

If he deserves worship for coming up with ideas then so be it. But personally I have not seen much of LandFish (not that I have been here for long). I would like to see what ideas he has to add to the "NPC AI for RPG" thread in the Artificial Intelligence area.

If he moved the discussion from Lounge to GameDev then people might equate that to Mohammed and his bloody mountains . I say just let him gather a following (of which I may or may not be a part of) because people who manage to gather such a following must be doing something right eh?

I would be happy to help out with many a discussion in an RPG forum. Heck, me and Darkmage could handle the thing outselves! Well, not really, we need a moderator who knows something, but it won''t be a big message board, but something that a lot of people can get into. I would be there all the time, reading posts and such, heck, even if there weren''t any new ones I would be in and out of there reading and studying. Gosh, the thought of an RPG forum just rocks! HEy moderators..are you listening!?

Oh and dwarfsoft, that is really some food for thought about your NPCs being characters too..that opens up a whole bunch of dorrs, like being able to actively trade with them to get new stuff, being able to get information based on a real-time living world that revolves with or without you...it''s very thought provoking

Cool... someone shares my vision... I am currently working on the game (though I have to get some kind of visuals up first, otherwise I can''t see what the NPC''s are doing ).

If you want to check out the discussion on NPC AI then go over to "Artificial Intelligence -> NPC AI in RPG''s". I hope there is some more thoughts added, I think that the NPC idea is overlooked too much.

I will probably post threads on such ideas up on my web-page, I am working on that... But the whole site needs a bit of a spring (or winter as it is here ) clean. It is far behind schedule (even though it was me who made the schedule ).

NPC''S ARE PEOPLE TOO!
Hehe, that saying is classic
