Hello there. This is where I'm gonna place all my ideas for my up coming project for the RPG Maker VX. Basicly for now this topic is gonna be my online notepad so I can ensure that all my ideas and whatnot are all in one place because I have a habit of losing notebooks with tons of information in them... =_=
Anyways, I'm aware that this topic will be open for public viewing so if you see something interesting please feel free to comment on it whether it be positive or negative feedback just so long it's constructive. =)
Not sure if this is allowed though so if any board admins have a problem with this I'll gladly take this topic down for the time being until I've got enough information to put it back up.
There may (Will) be spoilers in this topic!
Askay, Etsuko, Katsu, and Algus all belong to their own band of mercenaries. Work is scarce but they've managed to come across a job for the village of Demrik. They're too clear out a group of cultist like madmen from Demrik's mine to the north who have been killing anyone who draw near. With the mine shut off, Demrik has lost out on their economy coming from the mine's ore that they trade and desperately need help to reclaim their mine.
The group reaches the mine and instantly conflict with the cult there and also, to their surprise, imperial soldiers of the kingdom are among them. Deeper into the mine the cult has unearthed the entrance to an ancient underground temple that guards over a certain key that a certain someone wants to get his hands on to unleash and harness and awesome power in hopes to achieve his goals. (Got a little cheesy at the end I know but I'm trying to keep spoilers at a minimum. =_=)
Magic: Magic is highly shunned upon in this game. Those born with the ability to cast spells, whether they're healing or destructive spells, are usually casted out from their village and forced to fend for them selfs. This happened with Etsuko when she was around 14. Forced to reveal her magical ability to heal her father of a deadly illness, she was instantly casted out of the village even with her father saying the same. (This'll probably get worked on alot more.)
19 years of age.
Occupied as a mercenary in a band of fellow mercenaries.
Fights for money and other riches but weighs certain events with reason. (Will help those he's paid to fight if their cause is more peaceful of sorts.)
18 years of age.
Mix of light sword wielding and support magic. (Light healing with a bit of offensive power.)
Certain events caused her to become a mercenary with Askay in her past. (Not quite sure of what this is yet though. ^^') Will have a love interest in Askay. (Gota have the mushy stuff. xD)
Sweet and timid. Acts upon emotions more then anything which also leads to her being emotionally hurt quite easily.
21 years of age.
Fist fighter. Well built.
Another mercenary in Askay's band but later will turn into an antagonist when his greed is intrigued.
Even though an ally, Katsu undermines Askay at every turn.
48 years of age.
Two-handed sword wielder.
An ex-knight now gone mercenary. (Still gotta figure out how this comes about.) Leader of Askay's band.
No longer held down by the laws of knighthood but still exercises knightly manners.
Faces: I'm gonna be using the faces that were edited by Rabu so I figured I'd give him his credit here right off the bat. I must say, nice job on the edits too. They all fit perfectly in the chat box and look fantastic in game. Give a nice professional sheen to cutscenes.
Music: I got a hold of the BGM files that will be included with the release of VX and I'm not a huge fan of it. =/ So instead I'll be using the BGM files from Ragnarok Online. They sound so much better but at a cost they're about 2MB for each... =_= But it's worth it I think. Graphics and sound are two huge factors in a games enjoyability. Am I right?
Script: So that I can get the full advantage out of Rabu's faces I'll be useing Woratana's face script which can be found here: http://www.rpgrevolution.com/forums/?showtopic=8131. Thanks for the effort you put into this bud. =)
