I have just finished a book called Sam's Teach Yourself C++ in 24 hours. I was wondering what I would do with my knowledge and I thought I would make a Text Based RPG. I wanted it to be fantasy and have a combat system like that of Final fantasy(the clssic ones) or Pokemon. I know how I'm going to program it. I was planing to use RNG and things of that sort, but what I really need help with is Ideas. Not just story(but I need help with story too) but with different gameplay mechanics.
Thanks for your time.
