Hi Giovanni A. I don't quite remember what you were looking for before you edited you post, but I wanted to note that you'll probably have better luck with responses if you post about a specific section of your game and ask for feedback on that (for instance, the conversation system or battle system or whatever).

In general, you'll find that people have a lot of different ideas about what constitutes an RPG, so the more specific you are the better.

So are you looking for ideas on what to work on?

If you're fairly new I'd strongly recommend keeping everything very simple and maybe even using an existing (simple RPG) game as a template which you make changes to as you see fit.

Are you trying to learning game programming by programming an RPG, but you don't have an RPG story idea?

To get this straight, you are looking for the basic mechanics of the game then? Sounds like you need to pick an easily modified existing engine, and run with that. Alternately, try to form a development team, with people who are willing to work with you to design the thing from the ground up.

It seems to me you're asking this forum to design the entire thing's setting. Which I doubt will happen.

If you have a story, you should have a setting for it already. Expand on that; what kind of people populate that world? What do they use as weapons? Where do they prefer to live? What kind of political system do they use? What kind of social organizations might arise from that?

Weapons and spells can be developed off of that. Classes can be developed both from common, necessary professions in the adventuring style, and from the social organizations you created.

Alternately, just use the typical Tolkien fantasy setting, with Western Medieval weapons and classes based around that.

ah,the setting will be in bible times,based back to where the book of revelations came about,where the first apocolypse was set. that didnt happen,but.... all creatures of darkness fought angels and all of that stuff. in the book.

probably two factions,one a religios democracy and the other a dictator ship,it will either be single or multiplayer.
