So I had an idea.

Community RPG
The pen is mightier than the sword

Goal
We are going to make an RPG. Each person will play through the game, and add a map (or set of maps) with events, enemies, and towns.

Theme
The theme is 'The pen is mightier than the sword'

Rules
-You can only have two slots at most.
-Use RPGXP due to the variety of tools for mapping (ie. terrain tags).
-You may not add scripts, as it may conflict with past/future edits.
-You may use custom graphics/music, but do not overwrite any and/or delete any. They may not be from anywhere without the creator's consent.
-The plot must not conflict with earlier plot.
-Do not delete the file from your locker. This is so we can backtrack in worst case scenarios.
-Keep to the theme.
-Do not balance the already made part! That will be done later!
-A chapter has 2 or 3 towns and 1 boss- the boss is at the end of the chapter. You can have a miniboss in an area.

What to do in your slot(s)
1. When PMed with a link to the file, get the file and open it.
2. It will extract.
3. Open the editing file inside.
4. Do whatever as long as it complies with the above rules.
5. When you are finished, click on file, compress game data, and uncheck the 'Create encrypted archive' box if checked. Take note of where the file is.
6. Upload the file to your locker.
7. Post here stating you have finished.
8. PM the next person on the rota with a link to the file.

So, you're basically saying that this will be developed like some kind of chain-game? Am I reading this right at all?

What I'm pulling from the theme is that fighting and such really isn't a prime mechanic in this, right?

It is, but there will be battles. It'll be more of a problem solving game than a killing everything that moves game.

I was also thinking that the 'sword of plot advancement' will be the 'pen of plot advancement'.

But since it's a very open game, it could be pulled in any direction.
I am also pulling. I don't like using XP at all.

... What the hell I might give it a try if I can figure out how to use XP
LockeZ
I'd really like to get rid of LockeZ. His play style is way too unpredictable. He's always like this too. If he ran a country, he'd just kill and imprison people at random until crime stopped.

I'll help out with the balancing.

I certainly have no desire to create a full town and one or two dungeons and all the accompanying cut scenes and gameplay within a ridiculous two week time limit - that amount of work would easily take me at least three months. But if other people can do it, then hell I'm sure I can take a couple weeks to balance the fights.
I could extend the time limit if you want.
Or negate it. Which I've just done.

And towns can be as simple as an inn and a potion shop.
Half a chapter can be just a field to grind, an inn, and a boulder puzzle.

I added you to the rota in the balancing period.
You know, you guys doing this project made me wonder- maybe we should create seperate chain rpg games for different systems. (IE, 2000 users contribute to a 2k project, etc. etc.)

This may turn into something interesting. Who knows?
That's a good idea.
I suppose there should be separate themes to each of the chain games.
