Musicians: What software do YOU use?

FL Studio (Fruity Loops) is definitely the most complete program I've found. Be prepared for a steep learning curve tho.

Post your Music

I've been honing my dance skills and doing remix contests on IndabaMusic. Check out my page at

Could I get some Feedback on this Leveling System?

I was considering, rather than having the player's skills increase at all, forcing the player's strength increase to come entirely from 'food' items, or ATK + %5 sorts of items. That way, hopefully there's a greater incentive to fight now that you've got 6 different things to level up rather than one. In addition, there's the immediate gratification of stat bonuses after every single battle (which is nice because I plan on battles only ever having one character, so I don't have the benefit of at least one party member leveling up every other battle). Are there any hidden drawbacks that make this broken that I'm not seeing (I'm not the best at this sort of design)? What sorts of issues am I going to have to account for? Are there better ways of going about this?

Alternatives to typical RPG Battles

I just wanted to say I wouldn't call copying Chrono Trigger, or any commercial game, "creative." Cool, sure. Fun, sure. But the exact opposite of creative.

Well it wasn't EXACTLY Chrono Trigger's Battle System. It just reminded me of it.

Alternatives to typical RPG Battles

I'm considering abandoning the default battle system, being creative, and making one of my own. What are some of the more creative ways of battling monsters that you've seen?

One that comes to mind (for me at least) is evented chrono-trigger style battle system from The Longing Ribbon. That was pretty slick.

An Article on Battle Basics?

I'm looking to make some engaging battles in RPG Maker XP, but I find all of it very overwhelming. Could someone write an article on getting one's feet on solid ground when first starting to design your battles?

Games with AHMAHZIING stories?

The Way for sure.

Faith, religion, and you

I read C.S. Lewis' Mere Christianity a couple times, and when I'm struggling with doubt it's usually a good philisophical backbone for me to fall on. I'm a Christian, and I believe that everything that the Bible says is true.


I'm Crowdsourcing a country...

Me and a friend of mine are writing a campy fantasy story, but we can't come up with any convincing kingdom names...any help?
