that's right, after months of back and forth, i am making a series of lvls for LBPCentrals biggest Forum RPG, and i need you to help me with some thoughts...

you see, not only am i asking members of the RPG if they want to be an NPC, i am asking the best LBP PSP community, if i am getting things right mentally, before i start my sketch of the layout.

Story

the story is roughly the same as the forum RPG, except you are now old enough to choose which side you want to join in the war according to your parents, you travel the length of the wasteland, and several other areas, to decide, and gain access to the base of your choice(base holds a scoreboard for first lvl)

Mechanics

this is an RPG, just throwing that out there, and there will be a good amount of back tracking, so be warned! however, at anytime before solidifying your choice (entering base) you can change your mind, and start the training for another base, thus allowing a wide range of play choices

the second lvl (or set of lvls) will allow you to do a misson for the base the title says, or alternatively... should i make it one level for all three? and save time in between missions?

that's right... the

Missions

i am planning that instead of making a whole new lvl each time... i will swap out missions in the "mission center" levels,after you finish them, these would end, and give you a plaque/badge/item for completing it! which you can add to your own, copyable, TCW Room... which i will allow anyone to share them online, and have a TCW friends-list included!

What I need Comments on

that's all i got for now...it will span several levels, and hopefully make my forum rpg more popular... as well as LBPCentral! it should feel like a sort of MMO, and will allow sackboy/girls everywhere to have a bigger sense of community!

plz help me change, add things... so these levels are better!

so i take it your going to make levels based on the console wars forum rpg. The first level you choose your team and travel to your teams base. And your going to make levels which act as missions. Everyone gets a TCW room which acts as a profile type thing.

Is that all right?

It all sounds very awesome! though is it going to be on PSP or PS3?

psp... and i want ideas for how the lvls should be!

but yes, thats my idea... and it should be possible, oh...and i will swap out missions maybe, so you get exclusivity! and there will be five lvls, one for each side and one for first... no rogue unfortunately

Awesome!

Ok yea i like the exclusive missions idea. Hmmm missions should vary. So rpg, platformers etc.

Also I think it would be cool to make our own characters which will appear in our TCW Room.

I can assist with making characters if need be.

Anything that players obtain through prizebubbles needs to remain DLC free

yes, and its good i only have one dlc... besides costumes

and genre idea is goom... still rpg at beginning though, for like a main base i think, keep one part similar, so it feels like missions rly!

and ok, but still waiting for NPC volunteers atm... will pm when i need it.

so...all good so far?

Wait why do you need NPC volunteers? NPC stands for Non Playable Character, right?

Hey swweet!

This sounds like a great idea. I'm partial to RPGs anyway, and a multi-level multi-class adventure sounds like it would be really fun. Having achievements to add to your own TCW room is genius.

Ok, so am a little confused about the general story as I'm not too familiar with your TCW storyline in general. Could you post a copy/paste overview of the story?

As for suggestions, it sounds like you're going for a branching mission structure from within the game. It would be nice if you could give out keys or custom stickers to different levels, but instead you may just have to settle for giving instructions to specific levels. For example, if you choose a certain mission you could have a speech bubble saying "play level 1.3" or something like that.

thats what i'm going for, and to be honest... the story is what needs work :( otherwise i am ready to start working! oh, and i am thinking of swapping out missions in the four non intro lvls (one for each side) so there is exclusivity and so i can save time, they can just save older versions!
