    Hero in extended treaveverse would be cool.

    I dont want to be a vilain but a antihero with some real laid down motivation and goals would be cool. Lest say the guy tries to do good but ultimately fucks up every tiem destroying the city. But gets the badguys too. So there would be love hate relations with normal peeps.

    Also meeting Jing and Adachi would be good.

    Not directly related.

    Foxface is the Maiden of the Dead. :M

    Literally, an experiment gone wrong. :lol:

    So, taking the suggestions into account, you guys want something with:
    • Romance and/or baby-making.
    • Time skips.
    • Urban legends and strange murders.
    • Historical motifs.
    • Alternate history.
    • Crime setting.
    • More action than investigation.
    • Something less screwy.
    • Action-Adventure Fantasy.
    • Stats & skills.
    • An evil protagonist.
    • An anti-hero protagonist.
    • :bounce::bounce::bounce::bounce:
    Alright, I'll see if I can cook something up.

    Hey, a skill-based double-hero adventure with us constantly switching between a hero and a villain in an alternative history setting, where the villain murders people and other people make it into an urban legend, while the hero has to investigate it and put an end to it - which ultimately ends in a romance between them (and babies) - sounds pretty cool. :cool:

    Right or wrong, would not mind seeing more of those. An experiment is the mother of science. FOR SCIENCE! :obviously:

    Actually, Epic Gaiden was going to be my testbed for a deuteragonist LP.

    We can be Ean 2.0! Might I make a suggestion to split us up into teams?

    A multiplayer CYOA is my wet dream.

    But I don't know if it would be possible to make it work.

    You need a minimum of 3 voters per team.

    I'm not comfortable with being evil. I've tried before and failed miserably. I can be selfish, no problem. But evil? Not so much.

    So chalk me up for team "goody-two-shoes".

    That can be arranged. We never dipped below 8 voters, so 6 regulars aren't that hard to find.

    And of course, I'm back to being a regular, so there's no way we won't find six people.

    There's your six right there, it would be an awesome experiment. Hopefully it will turn out better than root's did.

    It'll probably be a trainwreck. Let's hope for an amusing trainwreck then.

    Thinking about it, I'd limit it to the trapped on an island survival game concept for a multiplayer CYOA. It just won't work very well for a longer story with a large scope, and you'd be better off joining a P&P game.

    True, players leaving due to real life would destroy teams and that's very possible with a year+ long campaign.
    We'll just let you get back to brewing up that next CYOA.
    I want muh Lil' E.

    Sorry, but 'TRIGGERED!' and 'NO!' :M

    I'll teach you a little secret. Each time you do something that isn't nice, tell yourself you did it FOR SHUN. It totes changes things and works wonders for your conscience. :roll:
    Show Spoiler
    One of the most enraging Legendary occurences for me was the 'Dex nearly placing a known rapist and an enemy who swore vengeance upon us on a Tufan throne by marrying him to a princess who did not really deserve this. Because that would apparently be good for Shun.

    Made me swear off all and any involvement in the court affairs and wish to pay a visit to the steppes and finally put the Empire under a Tujue steamroller so that we would never even face such a choice again. NEVER AGAIN! :argh::argh::argh:

    Funniest thing in this is that Shun was completely not at fault for the 'Dex desire to suck him off. He'd probably not approve of this course of action himself, as the alternative to marry the princess to him proved much better. But that's the 'Dex for you.

    I'm flattered, but Esquilax would be my Smooth Buddy for this.
    Seriously, though, I think teams should be random to prevent cliques and promote fair-ish play.
