For those of you who are just joining:

Nyan and I have been working on an RPG (hopefully in 3D if we can get the help). But as it is right now, only the two of us are working on it and it's difficult to get anywhere with only two people, on a project that requires many more people.

So we wanted to know if any of you would like to help out! There are many different areas where you can help too, which I'll be listing. I'm going give as much information as I can for now and any questions you have I can answer, and will add any extra info I remember later on into this main post.

There are 5 main character, making 5 different story lines which will be mixing in and out of each other. We don't have story lines yet, so that'll be one area we will need help with.

<br>
<i><b>So here's what we need from you:</b></i>

-<i>Voices</i> (so people to voice other characters, as we have the main 5)
-<i>Animators</i>
-<i>Anyone good with RPGs or programs related to RPGs</i>
-<i><b><font size=2>Story ideas</font></b></i> (BIG one. We really need help on this one.)
-<i>Music</i> (So whether you can get music (not pirated or anything. If made by you yourself and you're willing to contribute, then go right ahead.)
-<i>Anything else you can think of that could help!</i>

Sounds like you're making a visual novel? What program are you using?

Making a 3D rpg, and we were originally going to go 2D with RPG Maker, but decided 3D would be better. So no program as of yet~ ^-^

I may be able to lend a hand in coding and structural design.
I work in software development and game coding and design is a bit of a hobby I look into on the side.
If you need numbers crunched and balanced, consider that one of my other specialties.
I'll PM you my contact details in case you want to get in touch.

Oh that would be amazing! Thank you so much for offering~ Once we've got a basis on the story line and actually start getting the project going again, I'll let you know~

Thanks again =D

I could certainly help with story, though if you want help with that, you should probably post more info on what you're looking for. Is this set in the MGLN-verse? Is it an original world? Do the rules of MGLN apply? What is the tone you're looking for? Are you looking for a dark, gritty war story or something lighter and more upbeat?

I can certainly help with whatever kind of story you want, even as just a consultant.

You know you spend too much time on spacebattles when you start mistaking trees in picture thumbnails for mushroom clouds.

Mm it doesn't have anything to do with MGLN actually. Just the only site we're comfortable getting help from since we know a lot of people here =D

As for some information, we're still working a lot of it out. It is set in an earth-like environment, and basically will be like a mid-childan type world where magic is not abnormal - seeing as three of the five main characters will be using magic to fight.

We've started working a bit more on plot but we're honestly still stuck on that part so we're not sure what kind of tone. We've apparently decided though that one of the main 5 will first turn bad, pulled out of it and then die...I swear it isn't going to be as cliché as it sounds though xD

Anyway, as of now we don't have too much story wise, even what kind of story. Though I think we want to have it similar to the Final Fantasy style stories/worlds/etc. I'll be editing the first post with more information as it comes.

Thanks so much for offering to help! We'll surely need it xD

Well if you're going to have the characters on a 'downward spiral'/'descent into darkness' type story, I'd say a dark and gritty war-story would be your best bet.

To be honest, I think a cyber-punk style would be perfect here. Maybe this world has already gone through a few world-wars, mega-corporations in control, maybe magical powers are the result of genetic mutations, throw in some super-soldiers.

Also, are you planning on this being an 'earn your happy ending' kind of story, or is the goal to just dive right into the pitch black, with characters loosing their minds and eventually dying having changed nothing in the world or themselves?

Ehm, we don't want any world war/any war type scenario though. We were talking in the chat with Juno, Bardiche, Prime, Ace, etc. and we were discussing events relating to certain characters. Rosie is the one going evil seeing as she's been badly abused and stuff in the past by her parents, though Kurtis got her out of that. We were thinking that the darkness of her past in her mind slowly starts eating at her, a post traumatic stress type situation. She's got a lot of magic potential but it's all focused into healing, not attacking so you don't see it.

What we were thinking was that all of the creatures you see and that they have to fight are all just...I guess you can call them shadow creatures... not real, basically just pulled from the back of Rosie's mind without her knowing and given a physical body. If that makes sense. In the end somehow she gets pulled back in to...goodness...by the other four but dies while doing something good in the end. So yes, 'earn your happy ending' is a good term for this. =D

Anyway, we're having trouble keeping it away from Rosie being the main character seeing as all five of them are supposed to be main characters, not just one. The story keeps getting focused on Rosie. xD

Well, I only meant that any wars would simply be backstory as part of the world-building.

And as for Rosie, have you ever played Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep? Because Rosie's condition sounds quite a bit like Ventus/Vanitas, a generally good person that was tortured relentlessly until their rage/hate/sadness/etc manifested itself as other entities. Also, if you are going the darker route with this (which I assume you are considering you want to kill off most of the characters by the end), might I suggest that the shadow monsters can't form a physical body on their own, so instead they possess people. And there is no way to exorcise them either.

Ah I see and yes I've played part of BBS but didn't finish it. D= We are going the darker rout, but only Rosie is going to die. Anyway that might be a good idea, sort of like an FFXIII moment where people were turned into Cie'th and though they were real people, they were now monsters...it makes sense. I'll note that down and mention it on the chat when the other are on ^^

Erm..
I'm not creative, or imaginative in any way, and I don't know much about computers, almost nothing about them, actually.
But I hope I can help.. Somehow? :/

Character designs are staying, unless we ourselves want them changed. There's a lot more to them than what I put up. That's just the basics and will be going in to edit it later.

Any story ideas are a major plus for as, as that's mainly where we're stuck. We've got one thing going at the moment and as soon as we figure it out a bit more I'll be putting it here for people to work on. =D

So I'll give ya a PM in a little bit and maybe I can try to describe what we have so far? =D Thanks for any help!

I have a good mic, but my voice is on the deeper side. Dunno if that'd help at all... I can kinda do a few accents, if I really try.

I can help lots. I can be creative head if you need one, because mine hasn't stopped coming up with ideas for the last 2 hours. Also I do a bitching evil laugh. Also I know programming ;P so yeah, tell me where you need me.

Awesome~ Okay thanks =D

Prime asked for lines, to give an example of voices. So what I can do is post a bunch of lines for people to try out and show me. ^^

As we're still on the story stage, we won't be doing the actual voice recording yet, but it's good to get people for it ahead of time.

as of right now it'd be hard to give you an example due to my lappy freezing periodically, and my desktop's ability to work with sound... let's just say it wouldn't work. But I could still try getting an example done before my lappy freezes when you do want one. I could see my voice being of like a bad guy with a kinda deep voice, just my thoughts.

EDIT: I do have a voice changing software, but I still have yet to figure out how to alter the actual voice in files with it... if it can...

Ah, you won't need to change your voice. =D We'll be fitting voices to characters so it won't matter how your voice sounds 8D

Also you were asking about lines to record? I put some up in a document for Jamie and Kurtis if you want to try those out (It sounds like you might be good for Jamie as well, though Bardiche might be him.) I have the link in the first post of this page~

Indeed. We should have an evil villain laugh-off!!

And if the story I have in mind is going to be in the final product.... there might need to be a different one than mine.

Also I could supply some lines too Fate if you need me to >.>

Haha okay ace, you guys can do that. xD I'll see about coming up with some lines today and maybe you can help if you're on the chat at all?

Also very interested in the story idea you have. Can't wait o3o

@Rildok - If you want to wait until your computer's working a bit better, then that's perfectly fine. You won't have any less of a chance of getting a part in it seeing as we'll need many people anyway. Also, we're nowhere near needing voices at the moment but since so many people are interested it'd be nice to get a few noted down. =D

So take your time~
