View Full Version : RPG WIP: Bâshag's Bane; Awaking Part of my past

Well right now my WIP is a blank because it has no name and I'll explain the rest. Before I played jk2 and did 3D editing I made RPG games. I decided to start making them again but don't worry I'm not leaving or anything!:D I have an idea for a story for a game and need you opinions and add ons add your permission to use some of your names in the game. Right now this includes:

Lexx
Tyrion
Sivy

More may come yet. Anyway I've made some characters as well and I will keep you updated and I will let you guys play it when its done. I've forgotten alot (if not all) of the coding and will have to learn all of that again but oh well. Here is my story so far, I will explain it as it would appear to the player playing the game. Anywhere you see this: [need name] feel free to give a suggestion.


-New Game

An old elf walks walks across the screen and stops in the middle and turns towards you and starts talking.
"So young one, hmmmm whats that? My ears aren't quite what they used to be, what did you say your name was?"

-Enter your name

"Oh so your name is ______ I see, my eyes aren't quite good either what are you?"

-Choose elf or man (2 choices of characters for each, girl and boy)

"Oh so you are an [elf/man] and a [male/female] at that! Sit down young one and let me tell you of a tale."

-Goes through the events in an uncontrolable game format so you actually see everything happen, man also talks though

"Long ago, elfdom thought that the only living animals were elves and beast. The same was for the race of men. One day a man staryed far from his home and not having the woodland expertise of the elves he got lost and came upon our fair city of [need name] and was taking captive and was asked many questions. The elves then learned about man and the two races lived together in great harmony. There was but one who hated this new friendship, [need name] the advisor to the king of the men who was also a wizard which was unkown to the kingdom. One day he threatend to kill the king if he did not break the alliance between the two races. [wizards name] though he was alone but an elf was watching him and saved the king and [wizards name] was banished from the kingdom. And his magical staff was broken. He retired to the mountains and swore revenge on the king."

-Goes back to the old man

"That is why I have called on you young one, for you show great courage. [wizards name] has endured these long thousand years, yes he remains living. The time for his revenge has come. He has used the evil magic he had left without his staff and has changed many beasts into beast humans, they roam this land and guard him, they wish to carry out his revenge. That is why you must stop him."

-A figure passes through the forest behind

"Young one go now and seek Eruanno Eärfalas. He is the bravest Elf the world has ever known, also the best warrior, he is old now but he will instruct you in you time of need."

Then you go see Eruanno and do tests and learn skills with him and choose your weapon, either a big sword or a knife and a bow. That is all I have so far in the beggining of the game


Later on while you travel you will have to rescue either a man (if you are an elf) or an elf if you are a man and when you succeed he joins your company and helps you along the way.

So what do you think so far. Want to play it yet? Get those comments in. And don't forget to give me some name suggestions!

Sounds good!!! So is this actually gonna be a computerized game? (If you already said that and I missed it then you can call me an idiot. :D )

Edit: Were you looking for a name for the game? If you were I have a couple in mind...


And can I be the first one to play this. :D

Are you running it in a C++ or Shell program? Cause I know some people who are good at that.

Matt-Liell
04-06-2003, 09:56 PM
Its called RPG maker, I'm glad I kept it on my comp because you cant download it anymore. Then I use other programs to make the music and the sprites. But there is special coding for the program that will take the most time. When I get that all figured out then its just a case of building the levels and all the sprites and music and all the happenings in the game. The graphics in case you are wondering resemble that of SNES and Gameboy mixed with a Game boy Advance feel. You can play the game on a Full Screen Mode which make the game a little less detailed and more like SNES or in a smaller window which make it look quite good. Here is one of the characters in my game so you can see what I mean, this is the size in the small window. This character is the guy that moves around in the forest at the beginning, he has a big role but I don't want to give away the plot yet! :D

Matt-Liell

Right now I'm working on a Custom Battle System. The default is set up like Pokémon where you grow levels and gain experience and the fight window is the same. On mine you actually move around slicing guys up and stuff like that. Here are some pics of the two man male characters ingame. (Elf and Man)

I'm making an RPG...I'm using Rpg maker 2000. I assume you are also Matt? Anyways I'm calling it Final Fantasy Mix. With chars from Final Fantasy, a kinda secret boss will be Sephiroth.

Matt can you gimme some tips and tricks for the game, Mines pretty basic at the moment.

Wes Marrakesh
04-07-2003, 09:34 PM
Do you need any Elven names? I've got a few lying around. Three are male, one's female, and two of the male are very close. Could be father/son or brothers...

Great news! After reading a few tutorials I have successfully programmed in a feature to let you enter your own name to be used throughout the game!:D It may not sound like much to you but that is a great accomplishment because that feature doesn't work in the english version but I got it to!:D

Anyway heres a vote for you, for the battle system would you rather:

A: Run around with a sword and kill enemies like in Zelda

B: Do a side view battle

Eldritch
04-09-2003, 09:41 AM
B.

Boy, your time sure is filled, Matt. 2 models, skins, maps, an attempted mod and now an RPG. You ever gonna finish one of those? :D
Just kidding with you. Looks like a pretty good start for your RPG there, but I think that graphical style lends itself better to a sideways view. Plus that way you can have additional party members, you know?

Well mod was dissallowed by nintendo, Legolas is still being skinned, Link almost done, maps cancelled. So thats my JK2 status.

Anyway, the side view is really hard to make and to add more members is like 10 pages of coding in a side view. But I'll see if I can add more party members in a Zelda type thing or maybe you won't get any party members, what do you guys think?

How do you make diff battle systems than the deafult one in RPG Maker 2000?

04-09-2003, 05:10 PM
i like A. better but dont make it like zelda where you kill enemys and only get hearts or whatnot. make it so every enemy you kill you get exp.

You should do a mix,like ff style on bosses and zelda on normal stuff,tahts what I did in my game (RPG Maker 2000 kicks!)
