Please give your thread titles a meaningful description, for example "Need help making an RPG" would be better than "help".

Ok, so you want help making an RPG - what do you need help with exactly? From your post, I'm assuming that you are bale to make simple graphical games - but you don't say what kind.

Think of what a simple RPG game is built from:
  • You need a way of representing a world, probably made from a tilemap
  • You need a system for maintaining world items - think of what properties an item will have
  • You need a system for creating characters, both NPCs and PCs - again, think of the actions and attributes of a character
  • Characters need to be able to interact with items, either using them or picking up/dropping them
  • Characters need a way of interacting with other characters, either via dialog or through fight sequences

    There's much more to do, so I first suggest you start here and create a large list of things your game will need - from here you could move on and start creating those elements of the game, posting back on these forums with specific questions you may have.

    Hope this was instructive.
