  • I got a really important question for an RPG group like this.... are cliches really the problem with RPGs? I personally don't think so I feel if done right cliches are quite a great way to start my only issue is whether or not the writer of the cliche puts the effort into the writing in the story if they do a cliche without a good backstory and feel like they aren't even trying than of course people are gonna complain.... anyways ramble over what do you guys think? I am prob being too deep in this xD

    I feel like cliches are simultaneously the foundation and the downfall of most RPGs. You can link a cliche to basically ANY relatable plot device, and it is direly important that your audience be able to relate to your characters in some way.


    You're going to end up with cliches. There's too many existing in the world to be able to tell a non-bland story without one. Just use them well, is all.

    What people call cliches are usually just tropes. Or sometimes they're the very conventions that characterize a genre.  For example, 'Sword and Planet' is a fantasy sub-genre. You take a relatively modern Earthling and transport them somehow to another planet with a primitive society.  


     John Carter a.k.a. Princess of Mars, Flash Gordon, Planet of the Apes (subverts it at the end when you find out it's not another plant but another time)


    As we learned more about space in the last 100 years,  the genre gradually evolved out of "planets" and just into other worlds or realities. And it became more that characters were pulled in or summoned for a purpose rather than arriving by accident. If you watch Anime: Magic Knight Ray Earth, Dog Days, Digimon Adventure, countless others. Inuyasha, like planet of the apes it's a primitive world. 


    Final Fantasy X actually does something cleaver here, Tidus wasn't sucked into a Dream World, but rather sucked out of one. And he wasn't really saving this other world as much as he was ending his own.


    Oh man, I could take forever about this stuff. Anyways, it's all in how you spin it.

    This is the thread I could find:




    Your link above doesn't point to this thread.  Look at the topic id when you hover over the link - 60067 vs 60053
    Also thinking of adding new game plus where stats but not level carry over that however will prob require a script/plugin.
    I am thinking of maybe trying to event in alternate endings to my game where the player has the choice of doing things non canon, be a streaming water, or whatever they please but also get special endings to the game. I hope this doesn't require a script.

    I do not give into steam holding services hostage til I pay up 5$ sorry thats called ransom in my book so I will not be able to review til steam gets their head out of their butt

    Sorry, what? Are you saying you can't leave a review on steam because you never purchased anything more than $5 on steam?


    That's not ransom. They're protecting themselves from a very large potential source of spam.


    It's not like they're holding you hostage from doing something you paid for, so no, it's not ransom. in any book.

    defend them all you want they aint earning a dime from me til they revamp this system to be fair for all
    Whew Certainly Glad I preordered I always got overwhelmed with lack of resources before but now I have everything I need for my fist game in one go!
    I am going to bed very shortly any like any min. Good night guys ty for putting up with me I know I can be an idiot at times.
    did not sleep long but was well worth it that small nap helped clear my thoughts and calm down,and now I have finally learned tool creation for XASABS thanks guys for encouraging me not to give up.
    Well I have finally reached my end of this. I cannot continue further on XASABS without help there are are no tutorials hardly and the main one lacks any bit of essential detail I have decided I am better off either getting someone (most likely no one would wana do something that hard for free) or creating an new one myself and that will also require help because I need a tutor for scripting.
