Hey everyone! So over the past few weeks I have begun a serious attempt to create an RPG. I understand that it will probably be impossible for me to make the entire game alone, but I hope that over a longer period of time I will be able to slowly but surely add more and more to it. I have tried to make a large scale FPS game before, and so from experience I know that there’s a good chance that I will not even get to a legitimate ‘alpha’ stage for this game, but I’m determined and I really want to see this game through. I don’t have many photos to show yet because I don’t really have any of the graphics done yet, just some gameplay mechanics, but I don’t want to make a thread with no content so I’ll what I have so far. But first, the premise of the game.
Ok so way back hundreds of years ago there were a bunch of great dragons (my game makes a distinction between great dragons and ordinary dragons). One dragon, called Ahgerzgrav, went on a rampage and killed a lot of dragons and such, until Valniathys, essentially the king of the dragons, and some of the last remaining great dragons imprisoned him within a mountain and drained his power.
Hundreds of years later, general Rynios Pethrovus of Navgarin, a powerful half-elf sage, overthrows the king of Navgarin and starts an empire. Spoiler, his aim is to take over the entire continent, but more importantly, to awaken Ahgerzgrav as he sees himself as destined to do so.
The player starts out in a town that has been taken over by Rynios. He escapes and joins the resistance. Eventually, you learn about the legend of Valniathys and Ahgerzgrav and it becomes your mission to seek out Valniathys and ride him into battle against Rynios and Ahgerzgrav. I mentioned the difference between dragons and great dragons, well essentially I want to add a whole dragon riding mechanic where you get a dragon and raise it and eventually you learn to ride it. I actually don’t think it will be all that difficult to make, either.
So here’s some pictures of what I have so far:
A picture of my code lol:

That’s all I’ve got for the time being. I really want to make this game so I’ll be sure to update when there’s more to show. But that will probably be in quite some time because I want to get as much as I can of gameplay mechanics before I start making models/textures etc.
