Hello all!

This is a brief interest check for an as-yet unnamed fantasy game I'm working on. It is based heavily on old dungeon crawl computer games from the late 80's and early 90's, updated to be fun and accessible to the message board RP crowd! It places a heavy emphasis on character customization; As of right now there are six racial classes, six base classes, and you can even take levels in multiple classes to unlock powerful advanced classes, of which there are currently 12! Wiith an ability to switch out classes as you master them and continue gaining levels as long as you want to, the potential is nearly limitless. There is also the possibilty of more races and classes being added to the game before the site opens, and even in the course of play.

I've tried to break a few of the typical fantasy molds without simply flipping and reversing the old tropes, and hopefully have created a fun, unique take on some old ideas. If you are interested or have any questions, please feel free to post in this thread! I hope to have a system and the introductory adventures ready to go within a month, depending on how much time I have between work, social life and classes. Mostly I'm just wanting to gauge general interest at this point.

Sounds really good :) I'm not familiar wuth dungeon crawlers from the 80s/90s but love recent stuff like Diablo and Dragon Age. Is it something along those lines?

I'm happy to hear that you're interested!

More or less along those lines, yeah. If you're looking for a more specific example, I'm taking a lot of beats from the Wizardry, Might and Magic and Ultima series, namely the older ones. Form parties, explore dungeons, fight monsters, but with the added kick of a message board RP so there will be character development and storylines going on that aren't being run by the mods. There will be events too, of course! In addition to standard dungeons there will be special events that can reward powerful artifacts or legendary classes that can only be held by one character at a time. There will also be party-to-party conflicts (or even conflicts within parties), especially over said special events!

Basically, I'm really hoping to create as balanced a game as I can that will please as many people as possible while still having the unique vibe that only those old games had.

Sure! I have to write an essay for school tonight, and I need to make a reply over in Eternal Gaze. After that I'll post a mini design doc. :)
