My script makes practically no sense already, and I plan to keep it so. I need help coming up with scenarios. Random scenarios. Nothing is too random. Just post your ideas. Try not to make it serious. It doesn't even have to be a complete thought. Just come up with something and post.

Can you at least give a setting, time period, game genre, etc?

You play a character who is part of a side/faction - later in the game you discover that your side/faction is actually something you are against, and that your enemies are actually your allies. This was in the book, the Jackal of Nar.

You play as an ordinary dude. Later in the game you find out that you are a prince of a kingdom, or the lost heir of a lineage-ruled faction. Or later in the game you find out that you are the son of a deity or very powerful person, whether that deity/powerful person is evil or good.

You must deliver some sort of artifact to some faraway place or person, and everyone is after you (Lord of the Rings).

You play as a prince of a kingdom, only to find out later that there was just a mix up when you were a child, and you're really a ordinary dude. [grin]

LOL, that would be pretty funny. You don't see that often, though it sort of does match with something like the Discworld tales.

You are world reknown physicist and near completely paralysed Stephen Hawkings who is trapped in a hip hop music video and must rap and krump your way out.

Take random objects write them on a peice of paper, put in some adjectives and various stories and pull out a few.

Anything can look good if used right, Metal Gear Solid 4 for example...

A gun salesman with a bald monkey, clones, giant robots, old people, spies, cyborg ninjas, cardboard boxes. Yep so here is a random senario.

A boy finds a magical computerized waffle-iron that holds the spirit of the greatest hacker inside it's motherboard. The boy much use his magical high tech waffle-iron in order to bring down the evil food chains that are making Country X fat therefore saving them from Country Z who is filled with healthy sharkpeople who wield high tech shoe cannons.

The boy finds many weapons and friends to help him on his way such as a demon chinchilla, tomato bombs, and the Duck-a-duck cannon he finds in a nearby bookstore.

Hope this helps :D

Here is a link I use when developing scenarios whether for a game or a story

36 Dramatic Situations

As for an idea, the hero/heroine, loses their boyfriend/girlfriend in a kidnapping. The relationship is strained at best and both hate each other. The only thing keeping them together is their rich parents, who are forcing them to get married. After constant demands from both the hero/heroine's parents and the to-be in-laws to rescue the hero/heroine's 'beloved' do you set out to find her. You are led to a small coastal New England village full of bizarre grotesque people. You learn that your boyfriend/girlfriend was kidnapped because they have the perfect DNA for their god <Insert God Name> and will be married to <Insert God Name> at the end of the <Insert Religious Festival> festival, allowing the god to ascend to its rightful place in the heavens. You are quite content with this decision and inform the townsfolk that you would love to attend the ceremony. At the ceremony you find your S.O. and inform them of your plan, much to their chagrin, they then chide you to save them and take them back to their parents so you two can get married. The ceremony is wonderful and you watch as this god marries your now ex-fiance/e. Late that night you hear this awful banging on the door of your hotel room. Opening the door you are shocked to find the god standing there. He desperately asks you to take back your ex because he is sick of them already. This leaves you to...

You become forced to play chess against someone to settle a dispute, with real-sized chess pieces featuring real-live people that die in real-live deaths. And you have to be one of those pieces (not necessarily King, makes it more interesting).

Chess Gladiator Arena!

Sorry to just crash upon this jam session now. I keep tabs on forum activity by e-mail, and I never remember to check my e-mail until my hermit crabs attempt to cannibalize each other again.
The actual idea behind the game is actually far less glamorous than most of the ideas posted. The idea is that there's an academy somewhere for people who suck at video games (aka n00bs). The player , a normal student, learns the skills to acquire true pwnage (mad skillz) by going through various basic and advanced courses. The classes are all day and students attend school 5 days a week (in case you couldn't figure that one out, that's 5 classes at a time).
I need help coming up with new classes, as well as things for them to do in the classes. The more random the better. The more references the better. Think Family Guy.
Classes include ninja skills, bullet dodging, sniping, cooking, 'nading, advanced gaming, and (my personal favorite) Worst Case Scenarios and You. The class content should have some relevance to the class topic.
I finished writing 2 scenarios before I began the full-time procrastination that is summer vacation. They were both for Worst Case Scenarios, taught by digital me, naturally. In one I abandoned the class in the Congo and they were forced to find their own way back to the academy (which, I should mention, is floating somewhere in undecided body of water). And in another they go giant sand worm hunting in the Saharah.
