(If this isn't appropriate to post here, just say where I can post it and I'll post it there. Thanks in advance.)

I'm new to game creation, and want to know what would be best for my game idea. It's going to be an RPG with business sim elements. For example, the player gets paid money after a set number of "days" (pay day mechanic) and they can hire and fire party members.

Is RPG Maker the perfect fit for this idea, or are there other game design languages I could use?

Yes, any of the RPG Makers could be used for this. You could either set up your "day" system via events or use a script or plugin. Same with hiring/firing.

If you know what your doing you can do a lot with events alone.

For plugins, you need to post requests describing the things you want to be able to do, in detail (after checking to see what can be done by eventing). Then people will suggest plugins that might fit your needs, or get close to it.

The light has gone out of my life.

About time they finally press the kill switch button for older makers.
Sorry everyone, I am here sporadically. After 6 years of delays after delays in my life, I try to do all mat once and that means that I spread thin everywhere because it just is impossible to crunch 6 years in one or even two, but I try! I wish many of that I would already given you and put behind but... well...
I'm looking for an experienced gamer who has played a few games created with RPG Maker, who knows what an alpha build is, who may remember the old days when cliché was the favorite word on Creation Asylum, who, if a reviewer, would ask for my permission before making a review to post on YouTube, or whatever, since I will be messaging you a 10 minute, or so, DEMO based on an alpha build of Effervesce Fallacy™.
No matter how many times I listen to him, I know this is Joker speaking, but my brain can only hear Dagda.
