For the veterans aware of my track record, the first thing they’ll have to think is how poor it tends to be, due to my lack of focus. But what I’m having now is the rare thing of actually feeling ideas properly flow. So what I’m having now, is the first bit of feeling actual inspiration.
While massive spoiler warning, all these ideas for text games would take place in the same fictional universe, it would be nice to know what people would want to focus on as a thing for them to do. If a game is ever made and if it goes right, the rest can be looked at as tie-ins perhaps(Same world, completely different characters)
Ideas I currently have:
Exorcists hunting ghosts. I’ve already partially started on this(Debating how to progress it is another thing.) In this conflict, the conflict is between other exorcists of how to deal with dangerous spirits. Is it better to condemn them to hell or purge them from existence entirely? Is it really up to mortals to decide that? The sides aren’t about being right, but rather, just different points of views. That being said, someone can follow said school and still be a horrible person just as easily as a good one. But is there a right path, and what is it, if any? That’s the question the Schools war at each other with. They don’t want to just fight the opponent and beat them out. The Schools mean to do good in their own way, but all believe in their own ideology and want to convince the other of they’re path being the right one.
Immortals trying to hold onto immortality without upholding their end of the bargain(There’s more I’d love to expand on about this, but I’d hate to spoil the whole adventure.)
Angels trying to save humanity by making paradise. Basically, the angels completely wipe out all demonic corruption and save the earth by destroying demons. But now the angels and light beings are trying to make a perfect world for people but all of them have different ideas of what making a paradise for humans is. This isn’t simply Light=Law and Order. There are those angels, but they conflict into entirely different paradigms. Justice vs Mercy, Order vs Freedom, and the real risk of while few demons remain the potential of demon corruption to always taint and have someone fall. They all aspire to make the best possible life for humans, but have very different ideas of what exactly that means.
Elemental guardians spawned to save earth, which would be kind of like the light world but these are guardians who can be much more like jerkass gods, only worshipped so they don’t kill everyone, depending on which one. Once, the God of Life was lonely. Wanting to make some friends for herself, she created the minor gods out of elements of the earth. For the better part of a few thousand years, it was fun. But the minor gods while still powerful, have the key difference of being able to age and grow up over time, leaving a lot of now matured gods in the service of a child. When human life started to definitively evolve into a proper species, the elemental gods never understood why it was supposed to be so special compared to all other species. As beings that predate it, they have trouble understanding the Life God’s orders to act as actual guardians. Even as far as the nicest of them can tell, hurting humans is bad because it’s basically animal abuse. But being told that not only do they need to make room for this trivial race, but they’re being told that they need to be docile and helpful to them as they’re the Creator’s favored creations despite coming centuries later, with the guardians themselves apparently only coming in second to these mortals. How much they might resent their appointed roles, be supportive or just altogether indifferent, varies on the player.
