What kind of weird things would you put in the game or have the characters be, etc.

Not that any of us would...

What about "eight-headed monkey", the cousin of the famous three-headed monkey?

But actually I also don't really get it. What do you mean with a fantasy game?

Does it matter?

Pick a game, any game, I don't care! If you could make the next one a fantasy, or any of the games from the first one to the fourth one, it doesn't matter! It'd still be a fantasy and the plot of whichever game you change would have no effect on the game if it was a fantasy because it is a different type of game.

That's all I mean! Any game. I don't really think it makes a difference at all, but fine.

The next MI game

MI is already fantasy. :P Now sticking Guybrush into another game... that might be interesting. I'd like to see Guybrush in a "serious" pirate game, even if it's just as a cameo. Course, I'd also like to see something along the lines of Galactic Battlegrounds using the Monkey Island setting. We'd have to scrap all the SW, so it would be closer to Age of Kings: Conquerors, but with a ton of humour thrown into the mix...

I know it's a fantasy game, but when I say (or in this case, type) fantasy, I mean FANTASY as in, magical creature crap or little fairies floating around your head or something weird that you have to slay, you know, that sort of thing.

well......

I suppose you could give guybrush a cool-wizard-outfit and a magic wand. Let him float around on magic carpets and things like that. Let his quest be to fight a 100 foot large monster with 8 heads and 10 arms.

But then it wouldn't quite be a MI game now would it :D

Like Voodoo magic, vicious skeleton hoards, zombies, demons, three-headed monkeys, and ulcerous volcanoes? :) Heheh, how about we have Guybrush play Dirk the Daring in Dragon's Lair? He could insult everything he fights.

Like in an RPG? Believe it or not, there is already a Monkey Island RPG. Well sort of. Simply buy Baldurs Gate II (http://www.interplay.com/bgate2/), and then download this (http://www.fileplanet.com/files/50000/55208.shtml), or this (http://www.fileplanet.com/files/50000/55208.shtml). It will basically allow you to play through the entire game as Guybrush Threepwood from CMI, sounds portraits and all! Thereís also one (http://www.fileplanet.com/files/50000/53838.shtml) for all those Simon The Sorcerer fans out there (both of them! ;)).

Of course this post hasnít yet mention Jack the Blackís MI RPG. Which, incidentally, looks pretty excellent.

I happen to be a GM of a online MI RPG. It is done in the format of a interactive fanfic so to say and based in the Yahoo Newsgroups. Latest plotline we had was a insane one featuring an Island of No Return home to hordes of Man-eating Midgets.

I didn't notice that comment first time, should really pay more heed to what is being said. *shakes head*

I don't know how much that you have seen but while the web site may look good the posts of the members does tend to be a little so at times. Oh well.

Yeah, but keep trying. A full active Monkey Island RPG would be really cool, but it wonít be easy to do. Whatís the URL of your site again?

Jack the Black

Which one?

The newsgroup where it is based or the home site that is need of redevelopment?

Never mind, Iíve found it now. :)

*Takes a look*

Mmm, yesÖ this does need some activity. Iíll join and see if I can get anything going. Iím talking about http://www.safewire.net/mi-rpg/ and http://groups.yahoo.com/group/The_Monkey_Island_rpg/ BTW.
