So...thinking of making a forum RPG.

Post by THTB on Sun Nov 14, 2010 8:54 pm

I've had the idea of making this for, like, a couple years actually. Just a forum-based RPG. I have some meh ideas about it...but basically I want to take Pokemon's moves, types, etc, take the idea of classes and races from a broad spectrum of anime, games, and whatnot and turn it into something entertaining and mildly competitive as far as character building goes. Some things I got jotted down in my head:

-New type (Light)
-FF-style classes
-Hidden Power revamped
-Moves revamped to work in multi-player battles

Among other things. Anyone interested in helping me? Smile

Lol, Brohan, it's a forum-based RPG...meaning it isn't actually an interactive game, but a forum set up to be an RPG.

Okay, worked on a rough draft of the elements a bit. Here's what I came up with:

https://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=0AkOCnfkQ4mX6dEV0V0ZiNlpzakswcUZxR2F5QzR5UFE&hl=en&output=html

It's a modification of the Pokemon types. Here's what's changed:

Code:
-Grass, Flying and Fighting had name changes to Nature, Sky, and Combat, respectively.  No actual mechanics impact.

-Ground and Rock types merged to 1 single type called Earth.
--Super Effective:  Fire, Electric, Ice, Poison, Steel
--Not Very Effective:  Nature, Bug
--Does Not Effect:  N/A
--Resists:  Poison
--Weak Against:  Water, Nature, Sky
--Immune To:  Electric

-Completely new type:  Light
--Super Effective:  Poison, Combat, Psychic, Ghost
--Not Very Effective:  Nature, Steel, Light
--Does Not Effect:  N/A
--Resists:  Combat, Bug, Ghost, Light
--Weak Against:  Electric, Nature
--Immune To:  Psychic

-Fire type is now Super Effective vs Ghost types.

-Poison type is now Super Effective vs Water types.

-Steel type is now Super Effective vs Bug types.

What do you think?

Like the new light type, but bugs were weak as fuck as a whole, i think they need a buff attribute wise. Getting 2x damage from steel and doing reduced damage to light, could rape them theoretically, so unless you give them some kind of enhanced stat growth, they're done lol.

Yeah, offensively, it wasn't that amazing of a type, but defensively, the type was good for taking Fighting and Ground hits, and still is. Technically, it now also resists Rock types. It's an okay defensive type now, only hindered by its 4 weaknesses, which aren't common attacking types except for Fire.

One thing I did realize, though...Dragon is godly now. The changes to Rock and Ground result in Flying type now being hit by Earthquake, but now neutral to Rock moves. Only Ice type is the Dragon killer. I'm thinking of making Dark and Light do SE damage to Dragon (Dark and Light being a reference to black and white knights that slay dragons... Very Happy).

True...But I'm guessing Light and Dark types are gonna be able to use some pretty strong moves-I'm pretty sure a dragon can be poisoned and hypnotised, so make Poison and Psycic do 2x dmg and tweak the general stat growth for dragons to have 25% higher special defense and 25% lower special attack...just some ideas to throw out there-this site has about 500 members right? make all new pokemon based on what you think they would be like.

Dark is kept in check by Fighting, a common type and Light...well...yeah, Light right now doesn't have common weaknesses, though its resists are mostly uncommon also, except for Fighting. On the flip side, though, it gets SE damage on 3 uncommon types.

I think if the SE on Psychic is turned to neutral, it wouldn't be too bad.

Poison being SE on Dragon would be a little too good. Poison already got SE buffs on Water and Flying. It definitely doesn't need to be better in that department.

This rpg should be based soley on members here like:
Tay->TayBear->THTB Type: Fire->Fire/Poison
Brohan->BigBrohan->Broku Type: Water->Water/Fighting

something like that, make the pokemon in this forum rpg all new ones with names taken from the memberlist, afterall, we have 150 members

I actually had quite a few ideas for the RPG. It's not gonna be Pokemon...but it uses the modified type chart I listed. Smile

It's gonna incorporate FF stuff also, as well as races.

Okay-are FF classes in? Because you could make up some totally new jobs like...Rune. It would hyave an ability set based solely on annoying people, like an ability that randomly makes you opponent guard randomly, making them waste a turn...or one that forces the enemy to use a random debuff on thier party...We could have mini games as well, Chocobo races that entail 2 or more people racing to type a random paragraph or something, these could be held every week, rewards could be equipment gil ect.

Yeah, FF classes are included. I'm not entirely sure how everything is gonna work, though.
