    Well ... a micro demo. I only put it online to test some functions and make certain they would work as I planned them, so there is very little to it and the graphics are not what I will likely use when launched, but if you are interested in seeing what it will look like be my guest:

    http://rpgcn.com/test/Test.html

    When it's done it will be a Pokemon style game but better in many ways and more suited for children AND adults (not just kids like Pokemon is). I will be using monsters from various other games and genres to, as well as some made up ones eventually. Not really interested in suggestions yet ... as I said it's a tiny example of what I am doing with it and isn't even connected to a game server yet. Just click on portions of the map to move about, or click on one of the characters moving around to "talk" to them (really they just answer with "Hello"). The bottom line of the applet will be the chat message bar, though it only echoes to yourself ... but meh.

    Tell ya what.......if you're interested, I used to play a bit of D and D, as well as have quite an extensive library (Heinlein, Herbert, Ellison, Asimov, Bradbury, etc.), so, if you'd like suggestions, PM me, and we'll see what happens.

    (Just cut me in on the profits when ya get famous).

    Hmm ... never thought about what would happen if this actually became the next Pokemon ...

    The first monsters will be from popular v-games like Final Fantay (1-6) and Lufia (all highly modified of course).

    Oh yeah.......I'm also pretty well versed in Greek, Norse, Roman, Taoist, Zen, and other forms of theology, which means that I'm kinda familiar with some of their demons, monsters, heroes and angels.

    Oh, one thing you may like that I am doing better than Pokemon (or any other "monster hunting" game really) not all monsters are caught in the same manner. Some you bribe, some you show superiority, and others you coax. I am so tired of those "beating them then tossing a ball at them" or the really bad ones "knock it out first" (anything that wants to join up after having the crap beat out of it probably isn't too smart).

    Know what would be really fun? Putting clues in the form of koans.

    "What is the taste of an empty bowl of rice?"

    Satisfaction, or hunger.

    What is the sound of one hand clapping?

    Loneliness.

    LOL thinking too big. Perhaps in the future soon there will be quests and such, but the primary launch will be as simplistic as other monster hunting games in plot, find the monsters, train the monsters, battle the monsters.

    Hmmmm........maybe as you're training the monsters, you could introduce a nice old sensei who puts out bits of wisdom.

    Already planned something of that sort. There are many different ways to obtain monsters and many you will have to use "fuzion" (combining of two monsters) to obtain, but in order to figure all this out you will have to talk to the NPCs. Also, they will be the ones to give insight in how to train the monsters well and what actions effect their personalities and how.
