I’ve begun work on my new game Madoc. In it, you play a noble who decided to sail to America with Prince Madoc. The goal is to found a new kingdom away from the conflict back home, but as many come to discover running from one problem usually just causes you to run headlong into another.
Currently it’s nowhere near finished, and progress is painfully slow. I’ve mostly been learning choice script, and setting down the game’s mechanics. I’m having some trouble (I don’t want to say creating, more like discovering) the proper characters for this story. I know what they are, just not who. I’m focusing more on the main story because of this with little paper notes for myself about where I want to insert the NPC’s. I’ve already inserted Alamo/Aloma, the other characters will be an artisan, a peasant, and at least two Native Americans, almost forgot Madoc and maybe his brother Rhirid. Jeez, how could I almost forget the guy the book is named after.
Still haven’t decided how I’m going to do RO’s. I do know it will be more sweet less steamy, I’m just not comfortable writing that stuff personally.
The RO’s will most likely be
Al cares deeply for others, it’s why they originally learned medicine, but they try to put on a
callous, apathetic, no-nonsense front because of pain that has been inflicted on them by
-Madoc (Do you really love him, do ya now? or is it just the power/authority you crave)
-The two native americans (for love or just for diplomacy)
probably the armorsmith (for love or for the love of cheep armor!)
-the peasant (dang you must really love them, cause there definitely isn’t an ulterior motive
for this one that I can readily think of)

P.S. try to keep in mind that I’m trying to write this in a gritty real live way, some actions I write may put both sides in a negative light, but neither side is necessarily evil the europeans just want to build a new life for themselves, have come to far to turn back, and are scared of the native americans who they perceive as a threat. The Native Americans know there is only so much land and see the new arrivals as a threat to their way of life, which was obviously true.
Leading to the great moral question of what is more valuable a life or a way of life?
