Roleplaying Game Stuff

  • The game uses a timer-based combat system.
  • Actions determine Alignment.
  • There are three Alignments, Good, Neutral, and Bad. They are represented by the colours White, Red, and Black. And the titles Illumin, Crimson, and Raven.
  • All Skills, Abilities and Spells of the first level are open to all characters, based on alignment.
  • When leveling, characters are given 'Personalization Points', which may be used to upgrade Stats, Skills, Abilities, and Skills. Or learn new ones.
  • Depending upon Alignment, different Skills, Abilities, and Spells will be available to characters.
  • Experience is gained through combat and usage of Skills, Abilities and Spells.
  • Skills, Abilities and Spells gain experience, making them more effective and easier to use with usage.
  • Skills, Abilities and Spells that are of the opposing Alignment of a character are less effective.
  • Each class has nine circles of Skills, Abilities and Spells per Alignment.
  • Characters may take a total of nine circles of Skills, Abilities or Spells out of all available.
  • New, higher circles only become available if the circle below them has been learned.
  • Races, either Human based or Fictional are still in debate
  • A party's movement speed is an average of the range available to all members of the party, rounded down.
  • The game takes a top-down view straight out of Ultima or Final Fantasy, but with monsters and other parties visible prior to the conflict.
  • A deusomancer, or god talker, communes with only one god, if they move to an alignment outside of their god's, they do not have access to their god-based powers until they return to the proper alignment.

Weapons must have advantages to each and drawbacks, such as range, modifers when encountering particular armour types, classes, genders, and environmental effects such as rain.

The sprites used here come from the People's Sprites, which has a public domain gallery, and are only for ideas on what the classes may look like. Sure, they're public domain, and that means no need to say a word, but I felt like linking the site, so there. And, since fair is fair, those modified are also released into the public domain. How's that for plain and dull? It's very much a tired concept, but it shouldn't be too hard to do, which is what's important.
