    A Revising "Book of Techniques"?

    This one is a bit off-kilter, but seeing as I'm brainstorming, I thought I'd ask. Essentially, for a spell-caster class, you'd have a book that determined what kinds of spell they could use. As you go through the game, you'd learn various words in the language contained in the tome, and...

    "Wacky" Magic Mechanic

    In part inspired by the variations on the same spell I saw in Dissidia, I was thinking of having a mechanic in which if you put a character into a sleep status, his magic casting ability doesn't merely become stronger- but wackier, with additional effects as opposed to mere damage. For...

    Battlefield "Enchantments"

    Despite the hi-falutin title for this topic, what I had in mind is really quite simple. In this game mechanic I was thinking of having a boss (for example) cast a spell- call it Curse 1.  This Curse would act in a sense to open up another menu of commands on the part of the boss, and even...

    Kiseki Series and In-Depth Lore

    Hey y'all, I was wondering if any of you guys are fans of the various Kiseki titles. I am a total lore junkie, so to find a JRPG that had a compelling world and set of motivations for its characters was a veritable Godsend for an otherwise stuffy genre. I'm primarily amazed by their pacing...

I'm rather happy with it- and we'll have to see how it eventuates! The main villain's goal is an eternal war. In this capacity, he wishes to use war...

    Some Plot Details for my game

    Hi, so last time I posted the setting for my game. The political disintegration of the world itself is thematic- so over the course of the game, your characters are privy to the effects that this has on the morale of nations and so forth. Of course, with plot layering going on this situation...

    Hi everybody, it's great to finally join the forum! My interests are primarily in philosophy heavy plots and theory pertaining to the structure of stories and pacing. The intersection of the 'how' and the 'why' of the story.. I'm working on a rather large scale plot for a game at the moment...

    Tentative highly involved RPG Plot: The Setting

    Hi everybody. I'm relatively new to making my own RPG games, but as I decided on a story in which to frame the game, I quickly realized that it might become too ambitious for a mere RPG maker plot. I'm posting it here though to see if anybody finds it interesting in the slightest. The big...

Is it ok to repost stuff that i've posted to threads in the status feed?
If so, here's art of Shiloh, the main protagonist of the game i'm making:20220807_181702.jpg
They are meant to be ambiguous in gender, like Frisk from Undertale or Gogo from FFVI. I haven't decided what their age will be yet. Any ideas?
Please comment what you think about the art and design!
