    The last one's in autosage, but debate seemed to be in full swing so here's another.

    Broquest General.

    Last time, a bunch of people were raging at the developers for being unwilling to work on characters they didn't feel comfortable writing/designing.

    It all seemed to originate from the announcement that the PTSD Archer is going to be removed, and the Devout Dwarven Monk may be removed.

    What exactly is uninteresting about him? The concept is very interesting and original and his personality, which can easily be changed to become more interesting, is that of a stereotypical monk.
    If anyone is uninteresting and unoriginal, it would be the viking, orc, tsundere, cleric kid, thief and catgirl.

    A big part of this game is character interactions, you can't keep to that with only nameless blank characters. You can make a story around them but not as much between them. That said, an all soldier sidequest or such seems doable and probably fun.

    Having a name really helps, the amount of NPCs I've saved has tripled since I started giving them names.

    well then I guess i'll repost my idea here:

    I would recommend the inclusion of an ally who could swap allegiances in the game, should certain criteria be met. like a character that if not met/recruited soon enough would disappear and become a BBEG later on. Or perhaps a character who's brotential can slip into the negative and cause an inter-party problem or just leave and seek vengeance. maybe you could convert an already existing character into these slots. suave devil would suit the former idea, while hot-blooded rival would suit the latter. maybe vengeful viking could become evil warlord or invincible warlord under certain conditions.

    I'm reading the forums and seeing the Invincible Warlord has an army largely made out of barbarians. I think it could be cool to incorporate a barbarian giant or giant clan as elite minions/minibosses under the Invincible Warlord.

    Also, if the 'Invincible Warlord' has been defeated by an army including your relative, I hope you'll put in some taunting dialogue there. Not so Invincible if he lost once.

    That's pretty awesome. I like that idea a lot more than mine. As a player, I might feel bummed out if I selected party members that would not contribute to an upgrade path for the Dog. If the devs are determined for upgrades to be dependent on party members, could every party member be a potential branch for the Dog upgrade? Or enough party members be a branch so at least one is guaranteed for each game play? It might add to the convenience of choice if there was already a pre-set branch the Dog could take if the party members selection did not appease the player. A default branch that just makes the Dog stronger in every aspect without any specialization.

    I'd like Nameless Rank and File to remain Nameless Rank and File the entire game. I wanted to recruit a bumbling nobody and come out in the end of things with a bumbling SOMEbody. Some one, who wanted to save the world. He hasn't got particular talent, but the one that counts is his courage.

    I do think he needs some kind of compensation for lacking in everything, so how about he's really, really ridiculously easy to revive or heal? Make that his game-mechanic talent. A potion that heals 50 damage could bring him back from the dead. He goes almost hard, but comes back with a second wind ready to go.

    YES. New Game+ option to let you actually name him, too. And it still doesn't. It goes through the whole game and cutscene without naming him, but post-credits you get a text box saying 'His name was... (whatever you named him).'

    Best Bro, Rival, Elf from the future (to fall in love with best bro with pure tsundere powers, get comforted by the rival when he dies). Ex-villian for myself, steam robot to round the team out and provide coal fueled conscience.

    hard choice... but I want a truly irredeemably bad villain and not one that will activate a boner... so i will go...

    Corrupt and deceptive noble. It's on motherfuckers!

    That would be pretty awesome, just pull a Final Fantasy X maneuver. They went two full games without saying Tidus's name because they let you name him at the beginning. So a guy passing by would be all like, "hey wakka, sup lulu, hi khimari, good to meet you yuna, honor to be in your presence auron, i heard a lot about you rikku, and you must be the one from 1000 years in the past"

    >He'd volunteered to go behind enemy lines and use his military training to blend in with the other soldiers so he could sabotage the works and hopefully buy some time for the rest to get away. It was suicide, but he was the only one with the experience to do it and have a chance of getting away.

    >He'd managed to get away with setting fire to the food storage wagons. After all, an army marches on its stomach. That would at least force them to slow down for a while to take stock.

    >It must have been several hours later when he woke up alone in the middle of the road. He was sore and apparently alive. A hand on his chest and a pained breath revealed that the hole was still in his chest... and bits of glass were in the wound.

    Gritty as Fuck Party:
    Vengeful Viking Man, Dick-Ass Thief, PTSD Veteran Archer, Nameless Rank And file Soldier.

    Guest Star: Seasoned Veteran Relative.

    Villains: Invincible Warlord, The Evil Monarch & Dark Witch, Corrupt and Deceptive Noble. Cursed Daemon Sword.


    You are the Nameless Rank and file soldier. Put in the party by the Dark Witch as a trip wire ( as soon as you die your soul is eaten by her and she will know all you know- unknown y the player) the rest of the party was assembled by the evil monarch to get or negotiate for the Blade of Kings (Cursed Deamon Sword - Currently in the Possession of the Corrupt and Deceptive Noble who is dealing with both the Monarch, the warlord, and secretly the Witch too for the best possistion after the war.) So that you can defeat the Invading Armies of the Invincible Warlord. As a side-quest to free your soul, the Witch will order you upon your return to present the Blade of Kings to the Monarch and during the ceremony stab him in the heart, then cut off his head and put it on the sword.
    The Sword Will always wiser you promises while on the quest ( good glorious ones if you are good, profitable interesting ones if neutral or dark rewarding ones if evil).

    Rewards: Doing as Monarch says: A noble title and stipend - sword surrendered to the Monarch, Warlord killed, Noble assassinated.
    Turning to the Warlord: Captain in his horde - sword surrendered to him, Noble murdered with witnesses, Witch for ever hunted by warlord.
    Siding with the Noble: Sword 'Lost', choosing the most advantageous side, be it Witch, Monarch or Warlord. No rewards from the Three , but become the Noble's Courtier, smuggler and black market dealer.
    Aiding the Witch : Free your soul from her command. - Kill the monarch and the Warlord, visit the Noble, Negociate the surrendering of the Sword to her (ensure true soul freedom and some minor rewards)
    Yield to the Cursed Daemon Sword: Become Cosmic Horror ( Domination = Your Magic, Deception = Your Cunning)

    how will the game be

    its nice to have a story and a shit ton of characters

    but thats not a game its a story

    we could write a book.

    but we need to clear what kind of game it will be

    2d round based RPG ?
    if thats the case you should screen the characters in when they talk it would be such a waste to make a 2d game without seeing the artwork done

    No idea if anybody has suggested this or not yet, but we should have a character that breaks the fourth wall. He would probably fit better as an NPC, but he would say stuff like, "I'd warn you about the dangers ahead, but you can just reload your last save if you die anyway" and "no offense to you as a character, but the guy controlling you really needs to pick up after himself; seriously, I can see those soda cans and chip bags". His general additude would be similar to Deadpool's

    And there is no "boss" of this project. There is a member who organizes everything done and makes news updates, but everyone including the writers (such as myself), composers for the music, and artists communicate and work together.

    They use the cliches, but it isn't a proper parody if it plays them straight. And its not as fun or interesting if its that simple. That said redemption might be a possible path for him but it hasn't been figured out yet and won't be easy to do.
