Some things to note before we get started;
This is not going to be a roleplay entirely for children. As the game is set in the middle ages as is, we won't be "kiddifying" our language. Not to say it'll be an adult game, definitely not, but it's not for kids. Swears happen, violence is normal in the game, and destruction/death is usual.
So please keep that in mind right away.
This is going to be based upon Quest 64 and Quest RPG: Brian's Journey storyline.
However, there is no plan where the starting town will be, yet. This is due to first seeing who the players'll be. As is, where it would make the most sense. Because of this, there will be far more roleplaying than just
fighting, so no, this isn't going to be all about battles and HP Meters, and so on. This is a neat combination of both.
One thing to also note is that the list of playable characters will be reduced to the most basic of monsters, and 3 specific races; Human, Dwarf, and Elf. This is simply due to what exists in the game, and nothing more. Depending where we start, and how many people want to play, will determine a bit of the monster choices. If we have few players, it's easier to start in a low-level area, as we want weaker monsters that'll level up, or, of course, weaker characters that gain strength through battling and natural roleplaying experience.
In a sense, this does have some Dungeons & Dragons style of experience thrown in. You will not be rewarded for mindlessly killing, so keep that in mind before making a character. Every character being played(outside of NPC's) is considered an Original Character
. In that case, you will be choosing around, say, 70 or so possible races.(list will be available in the signup sheet) with appropriate stats. Depending the outcome of the choices given, the stats will reflect that. If only monsters are played, they'll be somewhat bumped up so they can "survive" battles.
Lastly, languages have been divvied into two main choices; Common and Monster. To make things simple, all Player Characters(who you guys play as) will know both. However, some Monsters and NPC's will only know one or the other. This'll be something you'll find out as you roleplay. Finally, the story has a somewhat dependence on the PC choices. If all monsters, it may change who the real villains are, and vice versa if there are Humanoids being played.
Thus, it's not set in stone. Any questions will be answered by "Irene" or my Quest 64-based sockpuppet, Whiteairknight. We are the same person. All images are available from that sockpuppet, and you can find the list at http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/forumite_icon_gallery.php?fortroper=Whiteairknight
Please request with the page and number. I will tell you if it's a playable character/race. I do not have a picture of Humans/Dwarves/Elves. Use any picture you want for those.
