Hello. I’m working on a CS game based on an original world that I created for use in RPGs. This will be my first time writing any a game or anything longer than a short story, so please bear with me.
It’s a semi-fantasy story. You play a Coatl, a mostly reptilian/humanoid race that lives on the mostly desert world of Hvala. They are a not very advanced, clan-based, theocratic society made up of settlements around oases. They worship Quetzalcoatl, the winged-snake, as their Creator-God, but aside from its name/snakeishness it is not based on Aztec mythology. They’re mostly element worshipers (Water/Plants/Metal/Sand) and all have the capacity for visions (except the exiles who are a special case). There is some magic, but other than the Priesthood, it is mostly limited to secret names, and is usually restricted to spiritual purposes.
The basic story is that there is an another previously unknown race called the Queetz (working name), who live in a jungle at the north pole (really need a better name). They are telekinetic and very magically and/or scientifically advanced. They are smaller than the Coatl (possibly batfrogs), and therefore haven’t needed to expand much until now. They are doing something (possibly involving terraforming - need ideas) that will threaten the safety of the Coatl and/or Hvala itself. Your character will receive a vision instructing them to go there and try to avert the threat in some way (short of destroying the Queetz). You have a choice of being winged (in the Priesthood), unwinged (average citizen), and if you want to be an exile (the hard version.) You will be required to bring an exile or vice versa with you.
This will probably be more of a character/story-based thing than an actual game sort of game.
It’s in a very begining stage right now. I need to flesh out the background/prologue and I don’t really know what I’m going to do for the main part of the game.
Suggestions and corrections are welcome. I would like to know if anymore explanations are required eiher in-game or as an index in the stats screen (other than the places where I’m using fillers. Like when I say “Describe vision”). I would like to know if the order of explanation might need to be changed. I’m having a bit of a paragraph break issue with the stats screen, but then there’s no pretty graphs or anything yet. Plot/grammar corrections/prettifying the game/stat ideas are all welcome.
Also, I have two pictures of the Skalen breed if people are interested. I think that’s everything.
