If you guys are talking about my okotu RPG rover reccomendd I do more in this group and wait before I launch mine, BUT he said I should still build up the page and get it ready for when people all in this group are willing to give it a try. Till then I'll work on my page more and stick here with you guys for a while to get an idea on how to put together a good story and make it something that YOU guys would appreciate and love. I don't want to disappoint!

Sorry if that comment you made blizzard has nothing to do with me and I just spammed the chat with a mini war and peace. :)

I think that's supposed to be a mystery. We only know what our characters know, which doesn't include much about the comers, so I would say no.

Derak and Krickarr reached Van'shu Village and they were separated by a Comer attack. Krickarr left Derak with a guard and didn't see him after the attack had finished. Krickarr then talked to the Elder One and followed the rest of the group back up the mountain and left a note pointing towards the mountains for Derak to find. Krickarr just caught up with the rest of the group and they have just defeated a new type of Comer. Basically, my comments are the only thing that concern Derak so you really only need to read them if you want more explanation of what I just said. Hope that helped a bit.

Quoting Blizzard -
So much for not being an Okoto Station that has an RPG...

Hey Blizzard, I've been thinking. When I get back home this Christmas, I kind of want to design an enemy for the RP- a sort of 'mini-boss' for our heroes to vanquish, similar to that serpentine Comer from earlier.

I've had a few ideas for it, but am unsure what to go with:
a) Another Sanguine Knight, like Ramza, paired either with a unique Comer or one of the creatures from the creature index.
b) An Agori/Comer hybrid, a mutated Helgran Warrior or something; I haven't thought of backstories yet.
c) An Agori giant, whom our heroes accidentally stumble across.

Or, if you had an enemy in mind already, then I could possibly design that for you instead.

What would you prefer me to do?

I've actually had a new enemy designed and planned out for some time, however I've yet to build it, however, I would be immensely pleased if you created a mini-boss whilst I figure out how to properly build this new enemy.

Neat! I won't be able to start until the 17th at the very earliest, so hopefully I would've decided what I'm going to go with by then.

I'm very excited for this, plus I'm intrigued for what you might come up with...

Certainly!

Also I should ask if you don't mind me making up a bit of extra lore for Botana within the mini boss' backstory? The stuff I had concerns the origin of the Helgran Warriors, the forming of the villages, and introduces several 'partners' to the Elder One, suggesting the Elder One is one of five village cheiftans as opposed to the ruler of the whole island (though he's either the most prominent of the five or the only one still in action; I tried to be vague on that front.)

I wanted to ask if you were alright with that, because those bits of information are quite significant in regards to the island's lore, though virtually inconsequential to the whole Comer narrative.

New sword is not the rocket sword; that is still the first one (Heretic's Cross). Idk why I keep giving him new swords, he's gonna have to do some Cloud Strife Omnislash business or something :P

Someone called the Fearbringer, whom we know little about- we've just defeated an enemy though, which is why things are a bit quiet around here.

Welllll, when the time comes for Lurian to use the Comer blood he snatched (unless someone catches on and stops him), he'll become a monster and mess up things for both sides.

Yeah, though I should probably mention, the reason Helgran looked as he did was because he took many doses over a long period of time... it took more than one bottle to turn him into his monster form.

I mean, the amount that Lurian has would still be enough for some kind of transformation. He would certainly become a lot more powerful, his physique might change moderately (going white, getting spikes etc.), and I'd imagine he'd go rabid or something- but I would advise against turning him into a huge titan like Helgran... you can still do that if you want, though; I just think that'd be a bit of a stretch.

Hello Werty :P

I think we've reached a point where everyone is broke for ideas, so no one is actively rp'ing. Once the story picks up again, people will probably start to come back, but until then...

I have a couple ideas to move the plot along towards the Fearbringer. While I'm tempted to give everyone else some more time to come up with some plot, I think that over a week now with nothing means that it's probably about time for me to move things along. I should have something up either in a couple hours or tomorrow.

I think we're reaching a climax, but not necessarily THE climax. I imagine that, after Alphinaud/Fearbringer is dealt with, we'll have Rove's Makuta and shades, and after that we could always go find the mainland and invent stuff from there.

Yes, things will definitely slow down a bit after this boss fight, but that is just something that happens. We calm down after this big fight, then regain momentum once someone makes a new big bad.

Also, don't forget DLCs with expanded storylines :P

the RPG is going to be a much more involved effort, and is styled more after MUD's than typical RP's.

I am not trying to draw atention away from here (blizzard did say I could post the page here, and also this RP is great.) but please do check it out. I am mainly looking for mods to help with setup right now.

The name is actually borrowed from Final Fantasy Tactics if you were wondering (I'm not naturally THAT musical :P), where Cidolfus is a very overpowered character available quite early on. I thought it would be nice to give the Elder One a fittingly powerful name (though I can't say it was because he summoned a golem, as that happened after I named him), but I may have jumped the shark a little bit.

So, over the past weeks I've noticed a decrease in activity here save for DA, Drachir and myself. I've also noticed that some characters have become a bit overpowered and, to be honest, I hadn't really thought this out too well beyond the Fearbringer, which got snuffed out in about ten comments. Not to mention with a lot of the overpowered characters being brought in, those who had 'normal' characters were kind of pushed to the side.

For that, I apologize.

So, these past few days I've been tempted to simply reboot the entire thing, this time with some new parameters to make sure this sort of thing does not happen again. Now, I am not a dictator and I'm not going to simply give this thing the axe without informing you all and putting this to a vote.

Should we restart this? Please, let me know. I want to hear your opinions. Also, if you have some suggestions, please don't be silent. I want to make this RPG as fun for everyone as I possibly can.

Yeah, sorry for my lack in activity- it's not the RPG, it's just my very busy life.

I think, since we are drawing to a very big climax, we should finish off this battle with Sur'Kosh properly and let that be the final conclusion to the whole story. That'd be much more satisfying than just giving it the axe, and perhaps unfair to Aeon.

Then we can see where to go from there- you could possibly create a sort of sequel RPG, still set in Botana but a long time after these events, giving it a clean slate. Or you could just create a whole new RPG and allow new people to jump on board. Or of course you could just reboot it Hollywood style, but I think that would be kind of cheap; it would undo everything we've done here.

Any of the above would work- but don't just axe the story- that would be such a waste, especially given that we were in the midst of a potential climax anyway.

I agree. Whilst I do appreciate the hard work and imagination Aeon, yourself and many of the other writers have put into crafting this world, it has become overly convoluted. The inherent separation of all of these different threads makes following the basic narrative hard, never mind the different species, Gods, antagonists and lore behind it. The overly powered characters also need to be addressed. It's quite hard trying to control two "normal" people when there are half a dozen people creating all sorts of different magical illusions. While I feel that non-powered characters personally helps make a better connection with characters, I think that some magic is allowed. There needs to be a limit however. An enchanted sword, fire abilities, sure, but recently it feels like characters like Krickarr or Fotoh have been weakening a villain for Ramza to swoop in and swiftly take them out without breaking a sweat. If we are to start again, I feel like the powered characters need to be on par with non-powered characters. Every character should be able to stand a chance against a villain. I say let this story arch come to an end and then you decide whether we make a sequel or reboot. Either way is fine by me. :)

Also, if you are going to reboot with new parameters, I'd like to suggest a few rules that should be implemented.

There should be a limit to the amount of overpowered beings- One or two is fine, but it gets a bit ridiculous when there's ten- it makes it less of a spectacle, and makes it impossible for more normal characters to contribute to the action.

A proper format should be decided upon. I'll admit, I've been very stubborn on persisting with the script format, despite everyone else shifting to prose- this is because it started off as script, so I wanted to keep consistent there. But if we start over, it should be established from the start whether we write in script or text, just to keep it cohesive.

There should be a restriction against writing dialogue or action for any characters other than one's own- as that can cause character inconsistency or just a hijacking of the plot. It's also unfair to the person whose character is being hijacked- this is a Role playing game, after all, not a collaborative book. A nitpick perhaps, but I think it's important.

A word limit. Oh lord please, a word limit. It doesn't have to be too low or strict, but we sorely need some kind of restriction- some of these comments are just insane.

Those are just what I wanted to say. These things were bugging me for a while, and I wanted to address them now, so they don't spread out into this potential reboot.

I agree with everything that everyone has said here, and, to be honest, I was planning on using Dardun to get rid of the OP characters, including himself, after this battle. Daradun said that he had made a bargain with the gods to get his spirit warriors for the final battle, and I was thinking that the other half of the bargain would be for Daradun to return to his own time, and in doing so he could bring Ramza, Alphinaud, Vos, and Qiav back as well, in order to make way for the mortals and not cause any more trouble.

Think of how LotR ended, with the end of magic and the passing of the elder races.

Quoting Wertman 8
Also, if you are going to reboot with new parameters, I'd like to suggest a few rules that should be implemented.

There should be a limit to the amount of overpowered beings- One or two is fine, but it gets a bit ridiculous when there's ten- it makes it less of a spectacle, and makes it impossible for more normal characters to contribute to the action.

A proper format should be decided upon. I'll admit, I've been very stubborn on persisting with the script format, despite everyone else shifting to prose- this is because it started off as script, so I wanted to keep consistent there. But if we start over, it should be established from the start whether we write in script or text, just to keep it cohesive.

I agree, but personally, there shouldn't be any overpowered player characters. NPCs are fine but I feel like there should be a consistent level of skill amongst the characters.

Perhaps. It would be ideal if there were no overpowered players, but there could potentially be *a* Ramza-type character, but obviously the Role-play would have to be designed in a way that their power doesn't make the struggle easier, or accelerate the plot too far.

Quoting Blizzard -
After hearing the comments so far, this is my plan:

After we finish this story arch, just to give this bit an ending, I'll reboot the storyline and change it a tad.

And, since you seemed so passionate about it Wertman, I'll make sure to give a word limit on normal conversation comments! XD Now, introductory or 'story' comments which propel the plot forwards are an exception.

I'll probably limit magic as well, just levitating rocks, pocket flames, gusts of wind, small waves in the water, etc. Also, I'll maybe advance the level of technology available to the Agori of Botana and maybe introduce another couple of uninhabited islands.

So far, this is only the very beginning of the plan, and I'll expand upon it farther.

Er... also, I realize now it may seem that I'm beating up on DA and Rove and Drachir, so I apologize if it appears that you've been ganged up on a bit here, I assure you, you have most certainly not been. At least for malicious reasons.

Will the other players be able to write as your character?

Sounds like a plan!

Well, I was actually talking about those story comments- I know sometimes there is a lot to get through, but the really long comments just put people off, and they're a nightmare to read. There are more concise ways of doing it than a thousand word comment.

Sounds good! And I don't mind at all, I understand perfectly and personally think Daradun is getting a bit OP, what with summoning legions of the dead and all.
