Early last year, my external hard drive died on me, which unfortunately was where all of my RPG Maker works have always been the last 15 years (on an external hard drive, not necessarily the same one, lol). After thinking for a long time about whether or not I wanted to bother getting back into it, now having been almost a whole year, I've finally decided to reinstall RPG Maker MV.

So far, all I have done is track down most of the plugins I used to have (still have a few more to find), and start a little work in the database, as such, the entire story is free and open if anyone would like to help. Furthermore, no title has even been decided upon yet. If anyone is interested, please reply or shoot me a message, and perhaps we can get together on discord for a chat.

All the info I have so far is as follows:
- The story will be fantasy-based, potential ideas I have tinkered with so far include something to the effect of multiple races, potential conflict between them, and probably multiple kingdoms.
- With regard to characters, preferably either 4, or 1 who can utilize certain pets (or more likely, summons), each unique/distinct, with their own combat styles.
- Lastly, the roles I would be filling. I would primarily be doing database work, but can also handle mapping/eventing if no one else would like to step up.

If anyone is interested, I can also use a mapper or two. It isn't that I can't do it, it's just that I'm extraordinarily lazy with map crafting, so much so that I haven't actually made any in the last 2 months. Each time I open up my game to work on it, I just go into the database to make new stuff or add new combat mechanics.

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED, PLEASE SEND ME AN ADD ON DISCORD: Zerothedarklord#8459

MAJOR UPDATE!

I have decided on several things. They will be listed below, in a basic list format. At the bottom, I will include an image of the world map (not necessarily final, but we'll see).

- Game Title: The Power of the Arcane
- 4 unique character classes, Warrior, Elementalist, Arcanist & Assassin
- 4 not-so-terribly unique, yet unique races.
Humans inhabit the kingdom of Lionsgard. Humans can
also be commonly found in other kingdoms, though they
are the least common in Yridyl. Broadly, humans and
elves don't get along too well.

Pharon inhabit the kingdom of Drake's Watch. Pharon
are humans who live very closely with animals.
Although still human, they often seem to have
animalistic abilities.

Elves inhabit the kingdom of Yridyl. While humans are
capable of wielding magic, no human could ever hope to
match the magical prowess of an elf. It seems that for
that reason, humans aren't too fond of elves.

The Tagian inhabit the kingdom of Edherest. Tagian are
humans who have forsaken higher intelligence in
exchange for brute strength. As such, they fear the
elves, as they are particularly sucseptible to magic.
For that reason, it is very common to see Tagian as
Witch Hunters and, very rarely, some will even
be strong enough to be Spell Breakers. Tagian are
often feared by elves due to their bloodthirsty nature.

- Known Characters and info about them:
- Ellaria "The Arcanist" (Class: Arcanist) (Main Character)
An elven woman who is an oddity among elves. She has
the exceedingly rare power to use Arcane magic.
- Mohrseus "The Iron Bull" (Class: Warrior)
??
Will join party early on.
- Dog Guy "Literally A Dog" (Class: Assassin)
??
First party member encountered, after being Enchanted by Ellaria with Arcane magic, he obtains the ability
to speak (and be understood), and better understand the human language. He introduces himself with an
extremely long and complex name, but insists on simply being called "Dog Guy".
- ?? "??" (Class: Elementalist)
??
Will join after Mohrseus, but not too late.


The image didn't want to upload properly, so you can find it here:

Updated the map, I didn't remove the previous so that the changes can be compared

Features:
- Full use of a time system, which will be heavily incorporated into the game play, which will include timed events, side quests, etc.
- Full use of time-of-day shading, for enhancing outdoor area visuals.
- Full use of dark layer, allowing lighting effects.
- Crafting system: Harvest resources from the world (or obtain them as drops from enemies) and use them in special shops to craft basic, and more unique items. Currently, there is Smelting (turning ore into useable bars), Smithing, Tailoring, Leatherworking, Alchemy and Enchanting.
- Enchanting: upgrade your items with unique effects or passive enhancements to make them stronger!
- Harvesting node respawns: As time passes on the time system, harvesting nodes will respawn so that they may be harvested once again! (Currently, the respawn time is 1 in-game week, but this may change)
- Limited stock shops: There will be shops with limited stock, and once they sell out, they won't get new stock in for 2 weeks! (duration subject to change)
- Timed events, such as harvesting nodes and shop restocking is static; a new timer does not begin each time a shop sells out, or harvesting node is harvested. Instead, they are setup in such a way that if you harvest an Ore node on saturday night at 23:57, after just 3 in-game minutes, it will respawn.

Question: (this might be good to add to your post but...) What does your timeline look like for your game? And how long do you expect total gameplay to be?

Unknown at this time, will have to see once I, or someone else come up with a story, Ideally, i would like it to be long, 30+ hours preferably.
If I have all the side quests and extra things I want, it should EASILY be well over 30 - 40.

Well, hey; I'd be happy to help you come up with a story and a script for your game. All I'd ask is if you'd be willing to help me with my game at some point. Your idea has a lot of promise. Let me know!
:rwink:

It looks like this idea for your game has a few willing participants. I've also been looking to flex some creative muscles but looks unclear of what you truly need.

A story, someone who's good with dialogue/script, and idea bouncers are always helpful.

Idea bouncing is great with me. I'll add you on Discord if that is okay and if you need me, I'd be more than happy to help.

I would like to level design or story board. Maybe character dialogue.

I can be useful in many assets.

This is looking promising on your project. I'd like to contribute some ideas on the races, world's lore, conflicts and stuff like that. But i don't know if you still need people for that. Game set in fantasy world like that already sparked my interest. :LZSexcite:

Just for the record I have greatly enjoyed the past couple months of using RPG Maker MV - enough that I went ahead and bought MZ although it's going to be a bit before I seriously start a project with that.
I have a pretty reasonable alpha of one game that's got roughly 4 hours of content and some bits and pieces of others after only about 300 hours total time and about 2 1/2 months of owning RPG Maker.....
I completely forgot which forum had the personal blogs for members. :LZSlol: It was probably a forum for the Ace program. I was going to see about posting a blog post, but I'm too tired, and if its associated with Ace, then its a moot point. :LZSlol:
I've had some hard times. A co-worker accused me (not going into detail here), and I am trying finish training next week. Still not paid yet, I think next week.
I don't like hard boiled eggs...
it's weird to eat something that crunchy outside soft inside. And after chewing it for a while it started to spill red sauces that taste like iron.
