The more I read about Wavinators design, the more I am loving it. Basically, it is turning into the game that I have always wanted to make or play. I really hope it's gonna make it off the paper. I would make it so that you interface with all this by simply having conversations/meetings with the NPCs ... so they would tell you how it is going, and you would give them advice and or orders. I also think that would make it feel more RPGish. Don't be afraid to blend genres. Specially not RPG and management ... they go so well together even though you get to see so little of it.
